It is worth a repeat here in part because it is fun to laugh at the overly but sincerely superstitious but also because it underlines why we must not allow the crazy right wing evangelicals who support Trump to create an insane theocracy in place of our democracy.
If you think this is a little bit of scare-mongering on my part, I would encourage you to follow sites like Right Wing Watch which documents the crazy belief systems of what used to be the fringe right but is now all too often mainstream right, as the right moved to the political extreme.
There is plenty of this same kind of promotion of belief in demons, and a promotion of the end days with Trump as God's chosen chaos candidate. These are people who are enthusiastically looking for the end of the world, including in any kind of fiery conflagration such as nuclear war. What these people believe should concern us all, because they wield very real political influence and power.
It was the prominent Christian media source Charisma that seven years ago carried the article on demonic Halloween candy is now carrying this article promoting Trump for chaos. So there is a serious connection here apart from the entertainment value. If you can't stomach watching the video below, this description of the book by the main speaker below should tell you what you need to know. And yes the 'Cyrus' reference is not biblical, it pertains to Miley Cyrus and her popular music Wrecking Ball. The unintended mental image of Trump "twerking" was so far the most entertaining moment of my day.
Known for his prophetic words about how presidential candidate Donald Trump is a “wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness” or how Trump has a “Cyrus” anointing to be a strategic voice in this urgent hour, Dr. Lance Wallnau candidly presents the supernatural story and strategy of Donald Trump being God’s Chaos Candidate.From the Christian media Charisma.

A Creepy Trick, No Treats, for Halloween
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble."
MacBeth, act IV scene 1, 1623William Shakespeare
Kimberly Daniels wrote about Halloween Candy for Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network web site where it drew the attention and ridicule from sources across the Internet, including the Huffington Post and MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
Daniels personifies that brand of religion that amounts to Christian superstition. It links to the crazy that is epitomized by extreme fundamentalists. It holds little similarity to what most people think of as conventional religious faith or spirituality, and holds more in common with Grimm's Fairy Tales, seances by adolescents at slumber parties, and ghost stories told at camp in the dark in the woods around a camp fire before going to sleep in a tent, (shining a flashlight up your nose, optional).
Daniels' version of Halloween is as different from real Wicca and modern Paganism as the fictional highly commercialized figure of a red-suited, white bearded fat old man with flying reindeer we think of as Santa Clause differs from the Biblical account of the birth of Christ at Christmas.
