Mayor in England felt, “Halloween glorifies Satan’s angels and celebrates the dark side – Halloween is a pagan festival”, but fell prey to UK nanny state ‘equality laws’
January 11, 2012
A Baptist mayor who refused to judge a pumpkin-carving competition because it ‘glorified Satan’s angels’ has been found guilty of breaching equality rules.
Tom Wilson and his councillor wife Sonja turned down an invitation to judge the event in Nuneaton, Warwickshire because of their religious beliefs.
Councillor Wilson, who stepped down as mayor last May, said at the time that he did not think young people should take part in Halloween because it glamourises evil.
He and his wife were asked to go to the town centre for the Saturday afternoon event in October 2009, but decided against it after consulting fellow members at their Manor Court Baptist Church.
