So will Bill Clinton get the whammy too, or do allegations of sexual misconduct count only if the subject is a conservative?

"Approximately 1,000 people have confirmed their plans to attend the hex event, but the venue has a maximum seating capacity of 60 people."

Perhaps first on their order of business should have been to conjure up a better event planner.

Admittedly my knowledge of Wicca and the larger world of witchcraft is meager, yet I thought that witches weren't allowed to cast spells (including hexes) on someone without that person's permission. At least, that's what my Wiccan-ex and her friends believed and taught. If that's true, we're seeing a bit of heterodoxy among witchcraft. 

Words that I never thought that I'd put together in a sentence - "heterodoxy" and "witchcraft."

Make a huge to do about a case that can only charitably be described as weak, ignore Bill Clinton and the fact that Planned Parenthood affiliates and other abortuaries have been failing to report obvious statutory rape (pregnant minors) for decades.  Strain out that gnat, swallow the camel.

Another one that I expected was a Babylon Bee. This has to be my favorite news story this year. I hope there is a cauldron. Living in the great state of Washington I have met a few Wiccans. As near as I could tell they don’t really have a clear belief system.

My daughter dated a Wiccan for a while. I spent three hours one day talking to him. I'd ask him something I thought a Wiccan believed, and he'd say he didn't agree with that. It sounds like each group of Wiccans has there own ideas about what it means to be Wiccan.

I did find one thing interesting in our conversation. We were talking about my daughter, who had made a profession of faith as a child, but was at that point unsure of her beliefs. He wanted her to follow him more closely into Wiccan, which she wasn't interesting in doing, so he had told her that if she wasn't going to be committed to Wiccan with him, she should turn back strongly to Christianity. He didn't think it was a good idea for one to be wavering and uncommitted in their beliefs.

From what I've read (don't remember where) many wiccans don't want to be associated with the term "witch" at all. A common denominator though, seems to be a tilt towards communion with nature, elements of goddess worship, pantheistic ideas.

I was wondering that (wiccan versus witch), and clicked on the event link to see what kinds of affiliations the group has, but it was unclear.

If you are serious I probably can get in touch with someone by putting something on Craigslist.

"Wiccans wanted to hex prominent Independent Fundamentalist Baptist leader.  All manner of hexes welcome."

Apparently there is no need for the target to be there for the ritual, so that's convenient. All the same, I think I'll wait until I'm a famous leader and on the wrong side of some political issue... and let things run their course. (The "wrong side" bit I have down already, but the famous leader... pretty sure I'm safe.)

....is when the voodoo priests and priestesses start taking part in the political process, don't you think?  Perhaps we need to include a prohibition of sacrificing chickens and goats to our campaign finance laws.  Ouch!  That felt like a pinprick.....

So hexes require consent. How ironic.

If witches are champions of free will, perhaps Christians will see the wisdom of leaning in the opposite direction.  (As least we can hope so :)
