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.
