There was no Satanic altar. There was no blood. There was no animal sacrifice. And as far as I could tell from talking to people at the Pagan Pride Day Celebration Picnic, held this weekend at the at Unitarian Universalist Church in Fort Lauderdale, there was nobody who believed anything Christine O'Donnell, the Delaware Republican candidate for Senate, had to say about "witchcraft."
Last week, Bill Maher showed decade-old footage of O'Donnell, a Tea Party favorite, appearing on the show Politically Incorrect, claiming that she "dabbled into witchcraft" but "never joined a coven." She said she once had a date on a "Satanic altar," replete with blood and "stuff like that."
Pagan Pride Day attendees were adamant that O'Donnell had no idea what she was talking about.
Though O'Donnell's old statements have received a lot of attention, the credibility of her remarks has received almost no serious examination.
