Catholic school kids celebrate Halloween, religious-style.

If you caught The Colbert Report last night, you know that in his “War on Halloween” segment Stephen gently mocked a Christian movement called JesusWeen, “a non profit organization also known as JesusWin…. focused on helping people live better lives through the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” ¬†According to the JesusWeen website, “Every year, the world and its system have a day set aside (October 31st) to celebrate ungodly images and evil characters while Christians all over the world participate, hide or just stay quiet on Halloween day. Being a day that is widely acceptable to solicit and knock on doors, God inspired us to encourage Christians to use this day as an opportunity to spread the gospel.”

In addition to wearing white and handing out bibles to trick-or-treaters (“Sure to make your house the creepiest one on the block,” Colbert joked), a fun way to celebrate JesusWeen is by carving Jesus’ sweet face or other religious imagery into the side of a pumpkin. ¬†Take a look:
