ResLife: Accidental Missionaries, or Introducing: Scripture Candy-Gate
Written by Bwog Staff
We were dismayed to receive the following Concerned Email from Nussbaum resident Allon Brann this afternoon.
Brann, like so many unsuspecting students, attended the Nussbaum incarnation of ResLife’s Thanksgiving free-food giveaway. But “the holiday offering of cider, pie, whipped cream, and candy is merely a front for a sinister aim: the indoctrination and eventual conversion of the non-believers among us,” he said.
You see, the candy corn distributed by ResLife is not candy corn at all! Nay, it’s Scripture Candy (“Reaching the World on Piece at a Time!”), and every package includes a Biblical quotation. (See above for two examples from Corinthians and Romans.) Brann’s package featured the following: “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” It’s Romans 5.8, and Allon Brann is not pleased.
Also of note: the Scripture Candy Company labels the candy corn “Harvest Seeds,” when they are abosutely not.
