Rick Wiles spent the second half of his “TruNews” radio program on Tuesday warning about the evils of Halloween. Wiles said that he refuses to celebrate Halloween because “it is not [his] religion” and “Satan is not [his] God.”
Since Halloween is “a religious holiday dedicated to death and the author of death, Lucifer,” he discourages churches from participating in the holiday. “There is nothing sadder than seeing Christian churches participate in this demonic ritual of death,” he said.
Later in the segment, Wiles expressed his disappointment that people all over the United States “worship” Satan. He described the time he spent in South America, “where the Catholic Church recognizes very paganistic holidays and practices,” and in “Third World and developing countries,” where he saw “bizarre” things, like people having parades in costume.
He admitted that he thought these people were “uncivilized, pagan barbarians,” but had sympathy for them because they are “spiritually lost” and “don’t know Jesus Christ.” Wiles went on to lament that he realized that you see “the same group of people” in the United States on Halloween. These are people who are “worshiping their God, their Father: Lucifer.”
