Palin and the witchhunter

Post by Lotus » Thu Sep 25, 2008 4:16 am

I am not sure if this belongs here or in the Fundies section. This also seems a bit unreal to me. On the other hand
from what I have heard about McCain's running mate this seems to fit.

Doesn't suprise me, there are Evangelical Pastors in Canada who claim to do the same thing to Fortune tellers in the town I grew up in.

It is very scary though, isn't paganism/Wicca just recently recognised by allowing people to have tombstones in with those marks on them? Anyway, just confirms that I don't like Palin.

The only thing I know about this is that the military has finally added the pentacle as a valid symbol to be placed on a soldier's tombstone.

Hmmm. I wonder if there is anything we can do, from a spiritual perspective about a) the evangelicals and the fundies, and b) the election and c) the political affairs around the world. There is something going on right now called the Peace Intention Experiment. I wonder if we got enough Pagans and generally spiritual people to work in their own way (spells, prayers, etc) toward acceptance, the canditate that's best for everyone, and peace around the world, if we could really make a difference.

We have an election coming up in October as well. I'd love to see Harper out, but I'm focussing on the promises of the NDP instead of how much I hate Harper ^___^

Once again, Canada has spots for good knowlegable pagans! Just not Calgary, okay? We're still over-packed. :roll:

It is a bit worriesome, but I honestly think it's more hilarious than anything else. Horrible that people still think this way, but hilarious.

As for the upcoming election, I'm not voting until next year. When the man puts into law that there won't be an election until 2009, then the moment they're told that they may win a majority vote now, and "co-incidently" decides to hold another election a year early... Well, I think that he deserves to have the courts throw the book at him. Last I heard the Judicial sector was still reviewing the information. :roll:

I feel badly for the "witch" that he ran out of the town in Africa. In many places in Africa, it's still common for accidents and bad luck to be blamed on a single woman in the village and her "witchcraft" which is determined by how a chicken's blood lets, etc. These women are forced into the savannah to survive or die, or to join "rogue" villages made up of these outcasts.

In India, we hear such horrid stories as women like these stoned to death or buried alive.

Same old fundie conspiracy theories, we are always trying to take over a school system or eat a baby or something.

I don't take what people say when they are praying to seriously anymore, they get whipped inot some sort of state where Satan is everywhere and Christians have to fight him.

Yeah!! When did humans become God's hitmen?? Jeez. ;) You'd think God could get his own hands dirty there or something.

Of course God can't get his hands dirty... all our best works are as dirty rags (or something like that) to him. So, I think the reasoning is, that God shouldn't get his hands dirty, if we can, since our hands are dirty simply by existing... :roll:

Well God needs us right? He is onlly omnipotent to show us that he could solve all the problems if he wanted too. But then God would get lazy and time would end etc etc.

No No, God needs to be more in a managerial role!

What are you talking about Willow? :lol:

God is already in the biggest managerial position in the world... Heck, he's been delegating his work to his follows since the beginning of time! :lol: :lol: :lol:

A real nice articale about Palin and Witches:

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.c ... 100308.DTL

He gives her what she deserves! :lol: :lol: :lol:
As for the Wiccans, well, those witches are, of course, even more about nature and fertility and earthly ritual, a deep, life-affirming reverence for the cycles of life, for protecting the environment and celebrating the body, and it's all wrapped in a rather limitless chthonic self-determination and therapeutic ritual magick that's essentially the ideological opposite of what evangelical Christianity often wallows in. I mean, is it any wonder they're so terrified?

This type of ignorance is everywhere unfortunately. These christians need to look into their own religion more. God gave us all freewill, right? Everyone has the right, by their own God to worship how they want, so what gives any human the right to change that. As long as there are no laws being broken and no one is getting hurt, what business is it of theirs! People need to look into themselves more into trying to judge others.
Thankfully we are protected by the constitution here in this country. :roll: I think American pagans should start writing letters,e-mails, or make phone calls. I believe the canidates need to have their eyes open to what a large voting group we make up. It is the vote that counts right now for them.
