A Jamaica Plain tradition is the Halloween parade along Centre Street, where kids in costumes patrol as local businesses and residents hand out treats. Yesterday, one parent reports, she was a bit miffed when her daughter showed her one goodie bag that had a come-to-Jesus pamphlet stuffed in it as well, down near Mozart Street.
Her daughter reported a man gave it to her and said he was with "the church around the corner."
As far as religious literature goes, it's pretty innocuous: essentially, if you ever feel scared, Jesus is there kinda stuff. However I really feel that a line is crossed by slipping it into my kids' trick-or-treat bags without my knowledge or consent.
