Keep your kids out of a coven

Anglican Mainstream have today published an interview with a Mrs. Linda Harvey who is involved in Misson America, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help in dealing with cultural issues such as feminism, homosexuality, education and New Age influences. Mrs. Harvey does not explain why the group wants to deal with education ( hmmm...) but she is concerned about the rising influence of witchcraft in our society ( as though gay priests, Islam and feminism and education weren't enough to be going on with!) Mrs. Harvey also warns that there are many sites on the internet where kids can "look up their nearest coven", she also helpfully explains why God has allowed Halloween to continue to be celebrated,
"the Lord has left Halloween alone to test us. For some reason God is allowing the work of Satan in the world today, and the devil has co-opted Halloween."
Now, I don't think it is at all healthy to get involved in the occult and, yes, young people can be easily drawn into unsavoury things, but this article was, I thought, further evidence ( if we needed it) that AM, despite its misleading name, firmly occupies the loony fringe of the Church of England.

If there are any C of E stalwarts out there who are concerned that their kids will end up in a coven, Mrs. Harvey says it may be because they do not have the full armour of God. You will be pleased to hear that you can encourage them by purchasing this armour of God dressing up kit. The girl's version is also nicely differentiated with a sort of veil, which should keep them out of feminism at the same time...
