Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" Yes, as a commenter noted -- we are the Sam's Club of deities! No pantheon too great, no pantheon too small. Is there a Goddess living in your backyard, watching out for you and only you? What luck! You should be happy.
I can't link to save my life, but if you go to http://www.wildhunt.org, Jason's site, you can click on the footage and commentary about Sarah Palin's personal protection from witchcraft.
Pagans, are we going to allow a woman to become vice president who may actively persecute us -- who most certainly will revile and belittle us to her many, many religious followers?
I'm not suggesting that Mrs. Palin would erect stakes on the White House lawn and have us lashed to them and burnt. But rest assured that she will undermine religious freedom, personal choice, and non-Biblical lifestyles in every way she can.
And there are plenty of ways she can do it. For instance? Enforcement of laws against religious practices in public parks. Might cancel a few Christian weddings, but it would certainly squelch many a Pagan practice.
It is time to galvanize our spirits, to band together, and to call upon all of our deities to work against the election of a known witch-hater.
I am going to tag every Pagan blogger in my sidebar and hope that this begins a ripple of Pagan work against the election of John McCain and Sarah Palin. Please, if you get tagged, express your opinion of this ticket and then tag all the other Pagan bloggers you know.
Sarah Palin believes in witches. Do we? If so, let's show her, by nonviolent solidarity -- wishing no ill upon her or her family -- that we don't want her to be in a position of power.
I make this petition in the name of the Celtic Goddesses, most especially my Patroness, Queen Brighid the Bright.
