Pastor Apologizes For Halloween Pamphlets

An Ohio pastor has apologized for giving young trick-or-treaters comic-book style pamphlets about fearing God. At least one parent complained about a pamphlet titled “Mean Momma” in which three children die, one by hanging himself. The Rev. Kenny Cousar of Hillsboro’s Northview Baptist Church says his church was careless and he “deeply apologizes.” He says the pamphlet was inappropriate for small children, and that his church doesn’t preach such “scare tactics.” He says the church gives out religious tracts every Halloween and usually gets a good response. The church’s Facebook page indicates 2,200 pamphlets were given out by church members to trick-or-treaters.
