Ungodly pumpkins


BelieveinScience

Recommended Posts

I'm friends with a fundie lite (I guess youd call her that) and she posted about how she didn't like halloween decorations and they spoiled her walks etc.. Someone responded saying "Last year, the boys wanted to know what a jack o'lantern was... I told them (for lack of anything more original) it was an "ungodly pumpkin." This year, any venturings-out in public are accompanied by unusually loud and clear declarations of "Look, Mommy! Annover ungodly pumpkin!"

Call me stupid, but how does a face on a pumpkin make it ungodly?

And what makes a pumpkin "godly" to begin with?

Good questions. :think: When you get an answer could you share it with me please?

I know the story behind the Jack-O-Lanterns but other than that I haven't got a clue.

When I was in Christian school they told us that the evil faces carved into pumpkins represented demons. We were allowed to carve pumpkins but they had to be joyful. Of course they also didnt like Christmas trees and one of my classmates families went so far as to put up a giant cross at Christmas to put their gifts under. They were a bit loony.

I want to know how Halloween decorations spoil your friend's walks. Does she not realize the monsters are fake or something?

I'm so tempted to ask why its considered ungodly.

You should have carved an angry Christmas tree into the pumpkin :twisted:

The tradition of the jack o lantern I am farmilar with comes from my Scottish heritage.

The other world(s) spirits traveled this world on Halloween. Jack o lanterns were carved to distract or trap the spirits thus protecting the house and it's inhabitants from harm. The spirits the jack o lanterns trapped were viewed as mischievous or evil. In some Christian communities, the tradition morphed. They started thinking of jack o lanterns as being houses of evil or evil themselves.

There were no jack o lanterns allowed at my Christian school. A classmate had jack o lantern earrings in newly pierced ears and they made her put band aids over them. We were seven just young Satan worshipers.

I'm sure any fundies in my neighborhood hate me. I've got evil pumpkins & skulls all over my front porch. I do hope I spoil someone's walk! :evil:

If you see me carrying my jack o lantern with me, don't worry. He is just tomato staked. I must keep him by my side constantly. I must not let my jack o lantern be ungodly.

Well, duh, an ungodly pumpkin represents fun and a godly one represents a woman in the kitchen making pies from it. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Don't feel pressured to as you'll have to face the repercussions of asking, but if you do please share the answer with us. I'm carving pumpkins this weekend - I wanna know how to make them as ungodly as possible.

I...what is this I don't even.

Why not just say "It's a pumpkin that some people carve into funny shapes" if you don't want to get into the backstory? And if you wanted to discourage the kids from asking to do it themselves, you could say "Some people like it but in our family we don't think it's right to do that. The pumpkin could be scary and we don't think that makes God happy." Or "pleases God" for older kids.

Hell, they should try explaining things to Small. Why do men have nipples, was a question which troubled her for ages. (To be honest, I'm not sure about this myself.)

Picture of a tragic pumpkin abortion (won't someone think of the baybeez?):

I raised 12 pumpkins of my own this year and now have a quiverfull of pumpkins. They are currently in the shed lined up in order of size.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
