The Magical Battle for America August 2017

All hail and welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!"

Gods bless America, land that I love!


Stand beside her, and guide her, through the night with a light from above.


From the mountains, to the prairies, to the oceans, white with foam...

Gods bless America, our home sweet home ...


Gods bless America, our home sweet home!

Beginning this spring, a group of loosely affiliated Pagans has been performing an intentional work called The Magical Battle for America. You can find the work by scrolling on this site.

When I first started this blog, I wrote with extreme snark about Christian "prayer warriors" who, in between passing the plate, are actively fighting to turn the United States into a "Christian nation."

Whoever thought these creepy evangelicals would achieve power? But they have, and they're still praying.

Do I sound paranoid? What do you think the chances were of a new Supreme Court appointee who is even more right-wing than Scalia? Who promoted Neil Gorsuch loudly and passionately? The prayer warriors. They've been working on this a long time. And look how they accomplished it! Doesn't the whole thing seem sketchy to you? These people are fighting to turn this country into a theocracy.

Think I'm kidding? Here is their web site.

Well, if it's a fight they want (contrary to what their humble Christ would counsel), a fight they will get. The Magical Battle for America is concentrating energy based on American heroes and heroines, tricksters and magical animals, led at the apex by the Goddess Columbia. If you don't know the first thing about the astral plane, you can add your energy just by meditating on Saturday evenings. That's when we do our directed mutual work. But you can practice this any time, in any way. Every voice raised means so much.

Call upon your deities and your values. Visualize the nation you want to live in. Help us make the magic we need to achieve peace, equality, and personal agency for everyone.

Someone might say, "Well, Anne, you speak of peace, but you show pictures of deities who are ready for battle!" Yes! So I do.

So do they.

It's not funny anymore.

organized religion sheeple are the clear and present danger. and we can thank good old saint ronnie raygun for encouraging their crap from the white house. BULLSHIT!

I find it odd that these so-called religious folks have thrown their support being a thrice-married, serial adulterer, who believes, because he's rich, that he can sexually assault women, and who ran a campaign based on hate of anyone who is white.

How could anyone push for the advancement of that idiot POTUS that has the mentality of a 3 year old is beyond me. Stupid is as stupid does and christian sheeple often do stupid things.

I pray a lot, but what I pray for is very different from what the "prayer warriors" want.

Love,
Janie

I've run across these "prayer warriors" online before. I don't see how kneeling down and asking a higher power to do your fighting for you makes you a "warrior." The real problem isn't their praying, it;s their voting.

I will call on my ancient deities. They want warriors? I'll give them warriors!

A portal opened and the underworld crawled out! Only weak, hopeless, downcast eyes, are prey to these evil, morally deprived , soul suckers.
Cult, pass the plate, brainwashed lemmings! NO, I'm not a fan of any of it!
