O’Donnell “Dabbled” In Witchcraft?

Every time a new Tea Party candidate wins an endorsement, the political world gets just a little crazier.  It was assumed we’d heard the most bizarre from new GOP senate candidate Christine O’Donnell when her anti-masturbation past come into the spotlight.

But witchcraft?  That was a little unexpected.

Via Think Progress:

Later in the show,[Bill] Maher played a previously-unaired Oct. 29, 1999 clip of O’Donnell on Politically Incorrect, in which O’Donnell said she once “practiced witchcraft”:

O’DONNELL: I dabbled into witchcraft — I never joined a coven. But I did, I did. … I dabbled into witchcraft. I hung around people who were doing these things. I’m not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do. [...]

One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn’t know it. I mean, there’s little blood there and stuff like that. … We went to a movie and then had a midnight picnic on a satanic altar.

The shocking news from this bastion of Christianity has quickly spread, even hitting the Washington Post.

How much is this hurting O’Donnell?  Well, according to Politico, she just canceled her Face the Nation appearance tomorrow, a sure sign the candidate no longer feels ready for prime time. 

Delaware GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell has backed out of an appearance tomorrow on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with no explanation to the network.

“They just emailed us and said she needed to cancel,” said Mary Hager, “Face the Nation’s,” senior producer.

O’Donnell’s abrupt cancellation comes after scores of stories have emerged about extreme comments she has made in the past about issues ranging from condom usage to human brains being inserted into mice. 

As the story points out, Rand Paul went into media retreat as well, after his Aqua Buddha craziness.

Perhaps all of the Tea Party candidates are in need of a quick exorcism.  Or maybe, in the words of Sharron Angle, they should at least stop wearing black.  After all, that is the color of the devil, right?

Expect more revelations on the candidate as Bill Maher releases a new O’Donnell clip every week on his show until she agrees to come on again.  As Maher is calling it — “It’s a hostage crisis.”

Claire, I believe she made the witchcraft comments on Bill Mahrs show. She was being flippantly cute. In her private life she has often vacillated from religious extremism, extreme conservatism to high school coquettish. She's a phony.

So, In closing O'Donnell may very well have practiced what she believed to be witchcraft, but what I have shown is that it is more likely that she had a penchant for "bad boys" as a teenager (like so many younger American Women) and this particular "bad boy" was trying to impress his friends and his ignorant little girlfriend with a can of red paint or a gallon of pig's blood from the butcher shop.

Witches in the Modern sense do not worship Lucifer (which ironically means "lightbringer,") most don't even believe in him; the only reason I do is because so many Christians do and if enough people believe in something it takes on a life of itself; Christian examples would be the healing waters of Lourdes, no scientific study has found any difference besides mineral content yet reliable data shows that the water has cured blindness, injuries, etc..

And finally, why is this an issue as long as she does her job?

away from you "non-believers" as we can when we try to change reality (or work magick); the less people around to claim something isn't real, the less spiritual effort must be expended to do what we do.

13.) We do not try to get people to leave their various religions to join ours. In magick you either are drawn to it or you are born with a natural talent for it. I have enough issues with my friends teenagers to want to subvert your teenagers. The issue with many orthodox faiths and why people are drawn away from them to paganism, wicca, magick, etc. is, I feel, an issue with hypocrisy and the subversion of free will by these faiths. If people practice what they preach then they are more likely to remain among the faithful, the words of Christ where a message of tolerance not destroying the unfaithful; those were Constantine's words. If people are asked to worship of their own free will instead of being told that if you don't you'll go straight to hell, more people may remain among the faithful. Just a thought.

humans and by interacting with board without taking the proper magickal precautions (circles, salt, cold iron, Holy Water (for the Christians out there) you are opening yourself up to goddess knows what. Playing with these devices without proper precautions is like opening your door and letting twenty drunk belligerent bikers into your home; IMHO a bad idea.

12.) A reasonable portion of Magick is about Belief. If you Believe that someone can harm you with magick then you are adding fuel to the fire. Just like if you believe in Angels then Angels will be part of your reality. Magick is a paradigm just like science, christianity, capitolism, communism, socialism, democracy, etc.

There are two distict "realities" to a practitioner of the arts. Consensus Reality and Personal Reality.

Because of how we perceive the world as humans via our senses each of us has a personal reality which extends to the limit of your senses, and it all about you what you see, hear, taste, smell, and feel and how you choose to interpret those senses.

Consensus Reality is what exists when those personal realities collide, kind of a spiritual democracy the more people agree on the existence of something the more likely it is immutably so.

Paradigms are pockets of Consensus Reality. Ever notice how "miracles" seem to happen more often in the presence of a group "believers" than in the middle of a University Science Dept.? Magick is the same bit. This is why most of us stay as far the hell
