BJ'S BLOG 11/05/12 "Political Messages on Candy"
On Friday during Listeners on the Loose, a Rock-A-Holic called in to talk about something that happened on Halloween that left her fuming mad!
On Halloween like most parents do, Dee took her children trick-or-treating and at one of the houses they went too, they gave out candy bars with political messages on them. Dee was pissed when she saw that there was a big “Reject R-47” (oppose gay marriage) sticker on her kid’s chocolate and had to explain to her four-year-old what that means.
I completely agree with Dee about being mad over this. Things like this really show you what is wrong with this country. It is so inappropriate that people do things like this because forces parents to have conversations they don’t want to have yet with their kids.
Why is it that other people’s opinions have to be forced down our throats? That’s what irritates me.
If someone wants to spread the word about a view point that is religious based like Reject R-47, (which let’s face it, anyone who is opposed to it has religious motives to be against it) then stick to places where these viewpoints are welcomed.
They should be keeping it to the people who go to their church not on the candy bars for children! I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, religion and politics should never mix…it is things like this that are ruining our country.
