Now this is a creepy stereotype

“Little girl, would you like some candy?” Somebody didn’t think things through when they decided that this was a good strategy for proselytizing.

An Edmonton mother is outraged after members of a local church approached her daughter on a playground – offering a Bible verse, candy and a promise that if she memorized the passage they would give her more treats.

Kathleen Crowe says her nine-year-old daughter Angeline was playing in MacEwan park last week when she was approached by a couple from the Victory Christian Center who gave her candy and a Bible verse. Angeline was also promised more candy if she memorized the verse.

And if she didn’t memorize the verse, she could burn in hell!
