Kirk Cameron Encouraging People to Poke Fun of Obama on the ‘Christian’ Holiday of Halloween

There was a time when Kirk Cameron was cool, competing with Michael Fox for the Tiger Beat title of America’s Favorite.

Since his glory days in the late 80’s though, Cameron has become just a middle-aged guy who is grossly uninformed.

In an interview with the Christian Post on Monday, in fact, Cameron tried to explain why every good Christian should don an Obama mask this Halloween in honor of Jesus.

“When you go out on Halloween and see all people dressed in costumes and see someone in a great big bobble head Obama costume with great big ears and an Obama face, are they honoring him or poking fun?” the actor asked, before answering, “They are poking fun at him.”

He then said that is exactly what Christians should be doing, because the holiday is a Christian celebration that used to mock the devil, which makes it the perfect time to mock the President.

According to Cameron, those that don an Obama mask are like “Christians [who] would dress up in costumes as the devil, ghosts, goblins and witches precisely to make the point that those things were defeated and overthrown by the resurrected Jesus Christ.”

The thing is, he stressed, people don’t realize that Halloween is really Christian Obama/Devil Bashing Day because at some point the pagans took over the holiday and claimed it for themselves.

“Over time you get some pagans who want to go this is our day, high holy day of Satanic church, that this is all about death, but Christians have always known since the first century that death was defeated, that the grave was overwhelmed, that ghosts, goblins, devils are foolish has-beens who used to be in power but not anymore,” he opined.“That’s the perspective Christians should have.”

While that may be his version of history, though, Cameron’s views are at odds with historians.

According to the History Channel, what we now know as Halloween was most definitely pagan first.
