Oh yes, much better to introduce kids to devils and demons in the name of truly scaring the hell out of them. Of convincing them that these demons actually exist, like the Catholic Church does, so they can live daily with the fear of spending eternity in hell. And "culture of death"? Really? Is Dziega worried that Halloween's stealing the the Church's show?

Huh....Wasn't it the Polish catholic church that just had the "hazing" of kids licking whipped cream off a priest's knees? I think that is scarier!
