Witches, Black Magic and the Second Amendment: The Right to Keep and Bear Arms Shall Not Be Infringed

Disclaimer: This article refers to witchcraft and not the religion, Wicca.

We all wish we lived in a safer world, one where we could feel sure that we and our children are safe from violence. It would be nice if we could just think nice thoughts and the world would become a nice place where other people treat us with mutual respect.

But, that isn’t reality. Refusal to acknowledge evil or to explain evil as simply an aspect of nature is not living in reality. Hoping that the Secret or Law of Attraction will save you from evil by virtue of your positive thinking is not living in reality, either.

Reality is that the world is full of evil people. If you are a woman or a child, there are people who want to harm you simply because you’re breathing. Just hoping that something bad won’t happen to you won’t keep it from happening. This is something all crime survivors know.

The ultimate disregard for crime survivors is the advocacy of victim disarmament. It is often after becoming the target of a dangerous criminal that people realize the need for self-defense. For example, many women who are often not gun enthusiasts, are forced to become armed for their survival. Such people are likely to be strong gun advocates because they know that their survival depends on being sufficiently armed. There is no teacher like experience.

Despite what anyone tells you, you have the right to defend yourself; you have the right to harm those who want to harm you. You have the right to defend yourself, whether by means of black magic or a weapon – yes, even an “assault rifle.”

Just like animals have a natural right to their claws, teeth and horns, you have a natural right to self-defense. Our ancestors were all warriors and you have the right to your self-defense, also.

Human beings have the power of their minds and the power of invention and creation. The 2nd Amendment is an expression of the natural human right to self-defense with a weapon. But, no one has to actually write a law to give you this right and no one can write a law to take it away from you.

You always have the absolute right to defend yourself against those claiming authority over you – because there is no higher authority than you.
What is the 2nd Amendment?

Many people, especially non-Americans do not know what the 2nd Amendment is, so here is an explanation:

It is that portion of the Bill of Rights (the part of the U.S. Constitution that is a human rights document, which outlines the inalienable rights of the people) that guarantees the legal right of citizens to defend themselves from criminals, including criminals in the government.

It reads, “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

This particular amendment is the key to all of the others, which is why it explicitly states that it “shall not be infringed.”

What is a militia?

This is often a point of confusion, especially for those who have no practical knowledge of American history. The answer is: If you are an armed citizen of the U.S., then you are the militia.

One way to gain practical knowledge of American history, if you’re an American, is to research your own family’s history in this country. Through my own genealogical research I learned that my great-great grandfather was a member of an organized militia in Kansas.

My ancestors founded a prosperous town on the frontier when Kansas was merely a territory (they were not part of the U.S.A., yet and began as a French territory). My family has a long history of gun ownership and gun sportsmanship because they needed to be able to shoot well to survive.

It’s probably hard for Europeans and city-dwellers to imagine, but there are large areas of the U.S. that are remote from the city and those of us who live in these areas cannot rely on local law enforcement when there is a problem. For example, I live an hour away from my county seat, over hill and dale. We don’t have a large sheriff’s department and when a deputy is dispatched in an emergency it may take 15 minutes to half an hour for him to arrive because he is coming from his own home – not a department office. If you see a rural home, especially one sitting in an isolated spot, you can bet that the owners are well-armed and prepared to defend themselves from intruders. This is one reason our crime rate is so low. Criminals go to places to commit crimes where they are less likely to be shot (usually large cities and other “gun free” zones).

My ancestors, concerned about the threat posed to the town’s safety by the Jesse James Gang, which was very active in the area at the time, held a meeting and decided to defend the town, especially the local bank. Fortunately, the James Gang never came into the town, perhaps knowing that my ancestors were armed and prepared to defend themselves. James was finally (allegedly) killed by a member of his own gang less than half an hour away.

Fully automatic weapons, called “assault rifles” by the military did not exist at that time. But, if the James Gang had had military assault rifles (like machine guns), then my ancestors would have needed these in order to defend themselves. This is an example of why there should be no restrictions of fully automatic weapons, now. If the enemy has high powered weapons, then you must have them, too, in order to defend yourself.
Black Magic – The Importance of the Black Magician’s Mindset

Black Magic is a form of aggressive self-defense. A black magician will first defend herself (or himself) by obscuring her identity and her location. She will lay down magic to confuse the enemy and drive him away from her door. She employs a variety of protective magical techniques to guard against evil spirits and evil people. She hides her activities and she uses spiritual informants to obtain intelligence about her enemies so she can take pre-emptive action before an attack occurs.

The practical witch realizes that she must, also, act in the physical world to obscure her identity and location by whatever means. This means keeping off social media, cleaning up leaked private information (if you have credit, a driver’s license or own property – your information is being stolen and publicized) and taking other practical steps like not receiving deliveries of any kind at your residence.

The practical witch hides her activities from any potential enemies. She keeps an ear to the ground. Her information about her surroundings not only comes from the spirits she employs, but from sources in the physical world, as well.

How to Apply Black Magic for Your Safety and Self-Defense

Always take appropriate action to secure your safety, both physically and metaphysically.

Do not reveal information to the enemy. Don’t let them know your location or the location of your valuables. Take steps to confuse the enemy wherever possible. Never give true information about yourself when you don’t have to.

After hiding yourself and confusing the enemy, the next thing you must do is refuse to bend to the wishes of anyone who tries to harm you. You have no obligation to assist criminals in harming you or anyone else, regardless of what authority they claim to have.

Authoritarianism is immoral. This is why witches and, in particular, Satanic witches lack reverence for authority or simply do not recognize it. There is no authority higher than yourself. Your “moral code” is within you. You know what is right and wrong and no one needs to tell you this – not a policeman, a judge, a priest, a god, a legislator or anyone else who would set themselves up as an authority figure of any kind.

You are under no obligation to obey illegal and immoral mandates. Furthermore, you have no obligation to assist those who wish to harm you.

War on Guns is War on Women; War on Women is War on Witches

The war on self-defense weapons is a war on women. And, any war on women is an extension of the war on witches that has been waged by establishment entities for centuries.

We have seen an attack from the extreme, religious right on women’s basic human rights, for example, attempting to redefine rape and force rape survivors to give birth to the offspring of their rapists through such things as “Personhood” bills, which disregard the humanity of girls and women. And, now we see an attack from the extreme left on women’s freedom, safety and autonomy by means of disarmament.

It’s true that simply owning a gun does not guarantee your safety. No intelligent person believes that it does. But, having a gun and knowing how to use it can be a deterrent to crime – especially the crimes of rape and stalking – and it gives you a chance where you would, otherwise, have no chance, at all.

In large U.S. cities, on college campuses and in countries where guns ownership is restricted or forbidden, the number of violent crimes is very high. Rates of homicide and other types of violent crimes, especially crimes against women, are significantly higher than they are in areas where gun ownership and the bearing of arms is unrestricted. This is why any attack on the 2nd Amendment is an attack on women’s autonomy and basic human right to exist in peace.

“What Part of ‘Shall Not Be Infringed’ Don’t They Understand?”

There is no such thing as a “reasonable restriction” on your fundamental, natural right to self defense.

Anyone who wants to restrict your human rights in anyway, whether it’s your bodily and reproductive autonomy or your natural right to self-defense is not your friend – they’re your enemy and you should treat them as such.

If you didn’t grow up with guns, make an effort to learn about them. Make friends with people who know about them and let them show you how to use them. Educate yourself about different types of firearms. Learn your own best options for home and personal protection in your particular circumstances. Do it now. Don’t wait for a threat to your safety to do this because if you do, it could be too late.

Witchcraft and the Occult: The Importance of Questioning All Authority

The floating lady looks real, but this is just an illusion.

The floating lady looks real, but this is just an illusion.

Witchcraft has long represented a rejection of authority. In the Western world, traditional witches have always stood outside authority, whether its religious state or other outside authorities. We scrutinize include conventional scientific, historical and medical authorities.

Anyone who grows up in a mind control cult and then manages to escape (please, see the previous article for the story of my escape from the Mormon cult) cannot help but question everything. It’s second nature. When you grow up as a child around adult authority figures who regularly lie to themselves and others, you can never quite believe anything you’re told. And you become suspicious of anyone who sets themselves up as an authority – and you should be suspicious.

The television media, for example, want to be the only media. For years they’ve tried to demonize bloggers and the internet, again, using ridicule and either not understanding or capitalizing on the ignorance of others about what the internet is and how it works.

The internet is truly the medium of the people. Because it lacks the trappings of big money and fame that big media like CNN and FOX offer, it attracts people who are genuinely interested in sharing information for information’s sake, which is the purpose of an internet from the beginning. Moreover, the internet is a faster, cheaper and more authentic form of communication.

Unlike the television, the internet facilitates two-way communication, which means people – most often complete strangers – can share ideas.

Faith in the Cult of the Television Media

Faith is the belief in things without any evidence or proof of their existence.

It is foolish, not to mention dangerous, to believe in things without any evidence. People who do risk their families, their money and sometimes their lives.

But, there are more types of cults than just religious ones. The television media are an example of a type of cult. The cult leaders are the familiar faces you see that bring you the “news” and commentary. They are the priesthood of the gods of Hollywood and servants and handmaidens of the god of the state.

Like religious cult members, people who have faith in the big media cult have difficulty communicating with people outside the cult. They have a language of their own. And, when they are presented with information that is outside that authorized by the cult, they reject it. Sometimes they reject it by ignoring the messenger and sometimes they abuse him or her, as those of us who have tried to break the Sandy Hook spell have widely experienced.

Authority and Illusion

With television and mainstream media, Illusionists and Authority meet to form an alliance of mass deception.

With television and mainstream media, Illusionists and Authority meet to form an alliance of mass deception.

The mainstream media cult is particularly insidious because it gives the illusion of having seen something, coupled with authority.

The mainstream media are like the jugglers of the Middle Ages, they use the power of illusion, not only to entertain but to deceive and sometimes to defraud. Many innocent people have been hurt by their most recent big hoax, particularly law-abiding citizens who have been blamed by the media for the events of the hoax that they themselves obviously perpetrated

Some people have theorized that the Sandy Hook Hoax was meant to be unraveled, as if the hoaxers want to be seen – as if they are challenging us. I don’t know if that is true, but I do know that Sandy Hook is the big one. It’s the one that has made millions and millions of people look and question the authority of the mainstream media.

To believe in the lies of the mainstream media is to believe the work of sleight-of-hand artists is real magic.

But, in the world of witchcraft, we are skeptical. We experiment. We research. And, we look for evidence.

Television and Mainstream Media Vs. Reality and Real Life

If you want to understand what’s going on in the world, the first thing to do is turn off the television, cancel your subscription and stop reading mainstream news papers, because they’ve been caught lying consistently. To believe anything they say is to have faith in illusionists who create events and then, after the fact, call it news.

To break the spell, start listening to the real people around you. Let them tell you what’s going on in their lives, what they’ve experienced and what they have witnessed.

Look deeper. Do your own research into everything that is presented to you. And, keep researching with an open mind, prepared to discard information if it proves false.

To be an occultist and to know the truth about witchcraft and the real nature of the world we live in means leaving behind faith, lies and the people who insist on believing in them.

Joseph Smith and the Mormons : Witchcraft and Occultism in Mormonism

Image of Joseph Smith, Jr., the ceremonial magician and founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as The Mormons.Image of Joseph Smith, Jr., the ceremonial magician and founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as The Mormons.

The Mormon Church, also known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is steeped in the occult and its founder, Joseph Smith, was a practitioner of witchcraft and a black magician who used his knowledge and abilities for nefarious purposes. As an occult researcher, the Mormons are a part of the foundation of my own life-long interest in the subject of witchcraft and occultism, including black magic.

I formally escaped the cult in the early 1980s. I don’t use the word “escape” lightly because this is not an organization that simply lets members walk away without a struggle. In fact, there are people who are being stalked all across the country by members of this organization who, undoubtedly, have connections to Federal agencies because of their ability to track both members and ex-members.

Mormons are highly sought after by the CIA and FBI because of their deeply conditioned obedience to authority. When I attended BYU, the fact that the CIA recruited on campus was a source of great pride to Mormons who naively believe they were being sought out for their “high moral character.”

It is only fair to note that most practicing Mormons know nothing of the occult origins of Mormonism. Mormons do not consider the beings associated with the alleged discovery of the treasure of the golden plates to be in any way demonic. Most of them do not know the full story of what led up to this alleged event. Nor do they associate the mystical practices of the early Mormons with witchcraft, although any occultist and any ordinary variety of Christian would certainly recognize them as such.

-A_Study_in_Scarlet-_in_Beeton’s_Christmas_Annual_(1887)

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s book, A Study in Scarlet, depicts the dangers of life am ong the Mormons.

The modern Mormon Church is very mystical and still engages in practices similar to those found in modern witchcraft cults like Wicca. In fact, a surprising number of Mormon women become Wiccans after leaving the Mormon Church because of the similarities of ritual and belief in a “mother in heaven” who is the wife of “god the father.” Another reason for their attraction to Wicca is that Mormonism is deeply misogynistic, so many women find psychological and spiritual healing in Wicca and in the practice of witchcraft, in general.

The average Mormon does not lack integrity and when they learn the truth, they are usually horrified at what they have gotten themselves and their children involved in. When members begin acquiring such knowledge, usually through the study of the organization’s history, most shortly thereafter become ex-members. Although, a great number remain trapped in the organization because of family and employment ties.

Joseph Smith and Witchcraft

Joseph Smith, Jr. was the founder of Mormonism, which originated in New York, near Palmyra in the 1820s and 1830s. This was about the same time that Maggie and Kate Fox, aka ” the Fox Sisters,” the founders of the Spiritualist Movement, began hearing mysterious rappings. In fact, this occurred only a few miles away from the area in which young Joseph Smith lived. So, you could say that witchcraft and the supernatural were sort of in the air there.

Historically, Joseph Smith’s family was no stranger to the belief in witchcraft. Although this was not uncommon, especially in 17th century Salem, Massachusetts, which is where some of Smith’s ancestors came from. In fact, it was the testimony of Joe Smith Sr.’s great-grandfather, Samuel Smith that led to the death of, at least, one innocent young girl in Salem. (Frederic G. Mather, “The Early Days of Mormonism,” Lippincott’s Magazine 26, Aug. 1880, p. 198).

Treasure Hunting and Joseph Smith’s Jupiter Talisman

Both Joseph Smith, Jr. and Joseph Smith Sr. were avid treasure hunters. They were, also, ceremonial magicians who engaged in rituals, scrying and divination. Smith used a talisman and invoked spirits that are very familiar to many modern witches and students of the occult today.

Please, see the following video:

Joseph Smith’s Demonic Treasure Hunting Expeditions

Joseph Smith’s Jupiter Talisman

Joseph-smith
An image of the Jupiter Talisman (Seal of Jupiter) taken off the body of Joseph Smith when he was shot dead in an attempt to escape the Carthage Jail in Carthage, Missouri

What is the Jupiter Talisman?

A Jupiter Talisman, also called the Seal of Jupiter or the Jupiter Pentacle, is a talisman representing the influences of Jupiter: Success, money, power in the world and power over women. Jupiter’s influence is one of expansion and greatness. The talisman aides the magician in finding treasure and the one who carries it has the power to make others love him and give him whatever he asks for.

This talisman seems to have worked very well for Smith, who almost seems to have made a Faustian pact with the spirits, given the violent and untimely nature of his death. The talisman brought him power, money and success. In 1842, he became the mayor of the City of Nauvoo, Illinois and his followers remained loyal to him despite all the evidence of fraud.

One of the Jupiter Talisman’s abilities is to bestow power over women and to make others give you whatever you ask of them. It is not known exactly how many wives he had, although 31 are documented. Two of them (Nancy Winchester and Helen Mar Kimball, daughter of Heber C. Kimball) were only 14-years old, at least one of whom he pretended to adopt as his own daughter. Some of his wives were married to other men, who according to Smith’s doctrines, have the right to give them to other men, if they wish. (See The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Genealogical Library record for Joseph Smith, Jr. and his wives) – (Update: Upon this date, July 25, 2012, the author of this article learned that the LDS Genealogical Library at ancestry.com has recently removed information about Smith’s child-wives. This information can still be found at: http://www.WivesofJosephSmith.org.)

Click the following link to read: “A Widow’s Tale: 1884-1896 Diary of Helen Mar” by Kimball Whitney, Charles M. Hatch and Todd M. Compton, publilshed by Utah State University Press Publications, January 1, 2003.

When Smith was killed in an attempt to escape the Carthage, Missouri jail, it is alleged that a silver-colored Jupiter Talisman identical to the silver Seal of Jupiter found in Francis Barrett’s book, “The Magus” and Cornelius Agrippa’s “Three Books of Occult Philosophy,” which will be familiar to many modern occultists, particularly students of ceremonial magic, was found on his body. According to his wife, Emma Smith, he carried this talisman with him at all times.

There is more to making this talisman work for you than just carrying it. The spirits associated with Jupiter must be invoked at the appropriate astrological hour. It must be conducted during the day or hour Jupiter. It is probably, also, helpful to conduct such a ceremony during either the waxing or full moon. Different Hermetic organizations, grimoires and individual magicians employ different but similar methods in invoking the spirits, which must be done regularly to increase the talisman’s power.

For readers who are unfamiliar with the medieval grimoire of Agrippa, which Smith must have had more than passing familiarity with, it contains information about the use of gemstones and herbs and their use in witchcraft. The information in this and similar books is used in the conjuration of angels, including fallen angels, demonic entities and elemental thought forms. Not only are there planetary talismans, but seals used in ceremonies to call upon high ranking fallen angels whom we occultists regard as separate and distinct entities, but which Christians generally regard as one entity known as “the devil” or “Satan.”

Some of these entities are able to grant supernatural powers to the conjurer and quite a few of them are able to tell the magician where to dig for buried treasure. Some of the entities from such grimoires have names like “Lucifer” and “Beelzebub.”

In other words, this practice is at odds with all of Christianity for, at least, the past 1,700 years. These books involve dark magic and are often unfamiliar to or unused even by some witches, especially Wiccans who eschew all forms of black magic. So, even among those of us who live and breathe in the world of the occult, some of the material in these books is considered off limits because it is associated with the Dark Arts.

Interestingly, some occult jewelers who sell this talisman to modern witches and ceremonial magicians advertise it as “Joseph Smith’s Talisman.” So, this is a selling point to many occultists.

Joseph Smith's Jupiter Talisman

Joseph Smith’s Jupiter Talisman

At the right of this segment is believed to be a photograph of the very same article taken from Smith’s Body. It is the obverse side of Cornelius Agrippas Seal of Jupiter. Note the Kabbalistic Hebrew lettering.

The practice of carrying talismans was continued by Smith’s successor to the Mormon presidency, Brigham Young. Young is said to have carried a special bloodstone with him whenever he was going into an unknown and potentially difficult situation. Among other things, bloodstone is used by occultists to obtain the power of invisibility.

The talisman’s power is still working its magic over the members of the church. This is a very materialistic religion concerned with personal and spiritual power over others, particularly over women.

Members are promised success if they pay their tithes. In Mormonism, a tithe is 10% of annual gross income, which is required to attain access to the Mormon Temple and the ceremonial rites, which promises Mormons success in the afterlife.

Mormonism is an inter-generational mind control cult. But, on a spiritual level, it is more than that. The members of the Mormon Church are under a very dark spell cast by a 19th century black magician and held in place by mystics and masters of psychology today.

The Summoning of Moroni

Mormons believe that Smith was shown the location of the golden plates, which he translated into “The Book of Mormon,” a sort of “second bible” for Mormons, with the help of the angel Moroni.

Moroni is similar to the spirits of the old Medieval grimoires in that he has specific times during which he can be contacted. The conjuration of Moroni is said to be accomplished successfully at his appointed hours, the Autumn Equinox, best known to occultist and especially neo-pagans as Mabon, September 21-22.

Grant Palmer Interview Re: Magical Toads and Joseph Smith

Shapeshifters, Toads and Bloody Spanish Ghosts

There are conflicting, although equally bizarre tales, regarding the discovery of the golden plates.

Many historians claim there is even more to the story of Joseph Smith finding his golden treasure. The location of this buried treasure was revealed to him in a dream. A Spanish-looking ghost with the appearance of a Conquistador with a cut throat, dripping with blood appeared to him in a dream and revealed the location.

When he went to retrieve the treasure he was unable to do so because it was guarded by a toad that shape-shifted into a man and forbade him from touching the treasure. It took him 2 to 3 years to overcome this obstacle.

The shape-shifting toad or other type of reptile is, of course, a familiar fixture in witchcraft and demonology. No doubt Christians will remember their own Biblical story about what happened the last time someone talked to reptile and received a gift from him in a certain garden.

Images of Smith’s Seer Stone and His Method of Scrying

Scrying: The Seer Stones, Peep Stones and the Urim and Thummim

Smith told his followers that “god” gave him the power to translate the golden plates. The procedure he used to obtain his “translation” is called scrying. Typically, scrying is the process of looking into a crystal ball, a specially prepared magic mirror, an obsidian mirror, a bowl of water or complete darkness in order to stimulate the power of second sight.

Smith’s method was to toss a seer stone, which was probably prepared through prayers and conjurations to spirits who help the conjurer to have visions, into a hat. This particular device was alleged to be a chocolate-colored, egg-shaped stone, which he had found on one occasion while digging. He would put his face into the hat and begin his “translation” while his magical assistant Oliver Cowdrey took down his words.

Similar procedures to this will be familiar to occultists in the pairing of Aleister Crowley with his Scarlet Woman and Queen Elizabeth’s court astrologer John Dee and his scryer, Edward Kelley, who gave us the Enochian tablets and their corresponding angels.

Smith and his followers tried to equate this procedure with a device from the Old Testament called the Urim and Thummim, claiming that the angel Moroni gave him two seer stones, which were designed for this purpose by god.

Since no actual translation took place, it seems likely that Smith used a technique similar to automatic writing to come up with the Book of Mormon. Passages are strangely and poorly worded and sometimes unnecessarily repetitious in a pattern that he may have used to try to mimic the literary style of the Old Testament (I’m familiar with this because I studied the Old Testament thoroughly in a college course.) Those occultists familiar with the Ordo Templi Orientalis, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and similar occult organizations will quickly recognize some of the most common terminology used in the Book of Mormon.

For example, the term Nephite is obviously “Neophyte.” In Mormonism, Nephites are the “white and delightsome” (this wording in the Book of Mormon has been altered in recent years because of its racist overtones) race of people in the Americas who are God’s favored people. In occult organizations, a “Neophyte” is a lower degree initiate. This is what Smith, himself, was believed to be as a mason – a lower degree initiate.

The term Lamanite is recognizable as a derivative of either “laymen” or “Lamen.” In Mormonism, Lamanites are the dark-skinned, evil people who are representatives of Satan on Earth who killed all but one of the Nephites named Moroni, whose story is at the center of the fictional Book of Mormon. The masonic term for those who are not members of their organization are called “laymen.” Masonic history is full of stories about battles between masons (neophytes) and laymen. The Book of Mormon is a story of a battle between good, godly white Nephites and dark-complected, evil Lamanites.

Occultists will recognize “Lamen” as the name for a special medallion that functions as an energetic storehouse for ceremonial magicians and helps to them to bridge their connection to the spirits. It is, also, used in secret societies so that one member will recognize another. In Mormonism, the Temple Garments or Holy Underwear perform a similar function in that they allow members to recognize other members in good standing.

The name Mormon appears to be related to the Greek god Mormo. According to Anton LaVey, in The Satanic Bible, Mormo is the “King of the Ghouls, consort of Hecate.” In Greek mythology, Mormo was a spirit who bit bad children, said to have been a companion of the goddess Hecate. (Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mormo)

Throughout the book of Mormon are other strange references to the proceedings of occult orders. These things would not have been known by the public and those in Masonic orders were sworn to secrecy on penalty of death just as Mormons were until 1991. So, Smith’s fraud would seem impenetrable. But, in the late 19th century, the rituals of such orders were all exposed by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and anyone can go and read about them for themselves and compare them to the rituals of the church and the terms used in the Book of Mormon.

When I was a member of this organization, the Umim and Thummim was a point of minor discussion and something that many members wondered about, because it seemed unclear. But, no one bothered to actually research this minor detail because it didn’t seem like a major point.

According to numerous researchers there were multiple seer stones and Smith’s family, who were all involved in witchcraft, commonly carried carried and used such stones, even keeping them in little pouches or “mojo bags” that would be very familiar to modern witches.

A number of people, including modern witnesses report seeing these peep stones:

“The stone was not chocolate brown but rather the color of brown sugar. It was 3-4 inches long, 2 inches wide, and had a hump in the middle which made it perhaps 2 inches thick at the thickest point. It was fiat on the bottom and had three black, concentric circles on the top 1/2 inch. Below the circles were many small black circles. The stone was not transparent.” (Mary Brown Firmage interview with Richard S. Van Wagoner, 11 Aug 1986. Van Wagoner papers, Marriott Library)

Historian Grant Palmer claims to have seen three such seer stones, kept in a vault at the office of the First Presidency (This is the office of the Mormon Prophet and his two highest advisors). He described the first one as “milk chocolate, like a baseball no stripes;” the second one as a.”shiny or polished stone, [with] stripes, dark brown – size between egg and handball;” and the third as simply a “small stone.”

The above descriptions are hardly in accordance with what one would expect the Umim and Thummim, the gemstones from the breastplate of an Egyptian Pharaoh, to look like!

But, clearly, if Smith received translations and revelations in this way, it may honestly be said by occultists that he spoke with the power of god as we understand this force as the Tetragrammaton, the 4 and 5 elements, the 72 names of god, which are both angels and demons.

But, this complex god concept is not easily equated to the fairly simple concept of god generally held by Christians, who see “Him” as a benevolent anthropomorphic being. From the perspective of any Christian, Smith was a witch who communicated with spirits who were most decidedly not “of the Lord” and therefore of the devil or Satan.

Temple Veil Worker Reveals Abuses and Secrets in Mormon Temples

The Temple Ceremony

In Mormonism there are “wards,” which are regular churches and then there are temples. Churches are for ordinary services and meetings. But, only certain members are permitted to enter the temples.

The Endowment Ceremony is one of the most telling and bizarre aspects of Mormonism. It is in this ceremony that only worthy Mormons who have paid their tithes and are living clean lifestyles, no extra or pre-marital relations, coffee, tea or alcohol consumption, etc., are allowed to participate in. It is in this ceremony that they receive their Temple Garments, known to the outside world as Holy Underwear.

The Endowment Ceremony is similar to the rituals performed by Wiccan covens, non-Wiccan witch covens that have initiatory rites, The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, the Rosicrucians and other similar types of organizations. The Church vehemently denies that the rituals are derived from free masonry, although they are nearly identical right down to the green apron.

It is, also, widely known that Smith was a free mason, although in the 1980s (when I was still a member), this was vehemently denied and members were discouraged from learning anything about the masons. This has changed in recent years and there is a more open relationship between the Mormons and the free masons, although the reason for the change is not clear. Quite possibly it is because the internet information age has made it impossible for them to keep some of their most embarrassing secrets.

The ceremony involves the washing and anointing of every body part you have while you are in a state of undress. At least, this is how it was when I was a member. The rituals are changed frequently, especially in the past few years as their Blood Oaths became the subject of public controversy.

These ceremonies have a truly Satanic feel. Many of us witches do not join covens because some orders engage in similar practices. Most Mormons have no idea what they’re in for when they go to these things. At least, my parents had no idea that they were being inducted, bum rush-style, into a cult with distinct Satanic overtones. The procedure is traumatizing, sometimes sexually traumatizing for Mormons who have been conditioned to extreme sexual repression and told “Let no one touch your body” except your husband or wife. Furthermore, sexual assault survivors and survivors of SRA (Satanic Ritual Abuse – See “Pace Memo” below) are often triggered by the sexual nature of the ceremony.

Anyone who has studied occult initiations thoroughly knows that trauma, including sexual trauma is sometimes employed in order to open up certain spiritual doorways in the mind of the initiate. These initiations are repeated as the initiate proceeds down the path of knowledge and spiritual enlightenment. Sexual and psychological trauma is, also, a fixture of the MK-Ultra Mind Control program.

Also, in organizations like the masons and the Mormons, it binds the initiate to the organization, not only through the swearing of oaths and allegiances, the giving of secret handshakes and spiritual names. All of these things, including handshakes and “sacred” names are given to the neophyte in the initial Endowment Ceremony.

Ex-Mormon Describes the Temple Endowment Ceremony

The Temple Garments or “Holy Underwear”

Mormon “holy underwear” or, as they are affectionately referred to by members, “garmies” is a special item of clothing with sacred markings on it.

They are more formally known as “temple garments” and they are only received by members who are deemed worthy enough to attend the temple and participate in its rites and ceremonies.

All Mormons in good standing who have gone through the temple must wear these garments at all time to protect them from evil influences and physical harm.

CBS 60 Minutes with Mike Wallace Re: Holy Mormon Underwear

Why do Mormons wear these silly-looking garments?

They are worn as a protection from evil, not only the sin of doing something forbidden by the doctrines, but from actual physical misfortune. It was said among the Mormons I knew as a member that the garments would protect you in case of a disaster. For example, if a fire were to break out while you were sleeping, you would not be burned on any part of your body the garments cover.

In the video to the right, you will see Mike Wallace interviewing Bill Marriott of the Marriott Hotel chain and other high ranking Mormons about the ability of Mormon magical underwear to protect the wearer from physical harm.

Former Temple Veil Worker Speaks About Rituals & Garments

Mormons wear these garments close to their skin, which is typical for magical items. As witches, if we want to absorb and project the energy of something we wear it under our clothes so it touches our skin. This is exactly how Mormon garments are worn. Some people wear these garments instead of normal underwear, but women, in particular, must wear them under their normal under garments. As you might imagine, this looks very strange and unattractive.

The “garmies” have certain symbols on them. This is what Mormons are told they mean:

Square is for being true or righteous.

Compass is the truth can be circumscribed in one eternal whole.

Navel mark is a reminder of the need for continual spiritual nourishment.

Knee mark is every knee will bend and every tongue confess that Jesus is the Christ.

The actual purpose of these garments and the influence of their marks will likely be readily apparent to anyone familiar with Eastern occultism. The two marks on the chest and the one on the right knee are over minor chakra centers. The navel chakra is a major energy center with energy flowing in and out of it, tinged by these occult markings. This is the spiritual aspect of the mind control and part of the spell placed on those who participate in Temple rites. All of the spiritual nourishment they take in and expel into the environment is influenced by these symbols and whatever spell has been placed over them.

Mormon Hymn Expressing a Longing for Kolob

Luciferianism and Kolob

One of the most intriguing aspects of Mormonism to the occultist is that it is thoroughly Luciferian in its belief that men (although, not so much women) can become as gods: “As man is now, god once was. As god is now, man may become.”

This is the goal of all witches and magicians. We take on the power of the gods and transform ourselves through them and through knowledge. We seek the light of the illuminated consort of the goddess. It is through the wisdom of the gods is a gift given to us by Lucifer, the Morning Star and bringer of Light, we can attain godhood if not in this life, then in another one.

The Mormons have gone so far as to say that men who achieve godhood will be assigned their own planet and the ability to create more worlds like the physical earth existence we know now. In this “heaven for men” they call the Celestial Kingdom, men are given many wives who remain eternally pregnant in order to provide children for these new planets. It is important to note that this is still a doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints despite their attempts to distance themselves from Fundamentalist Mormons like the convicted child rapist Warren Jeffs.

Presently, the Mormon god dwells on (or “near,” according to one of their missionaries who haplessly wandered into my occult bookstore a few years ago) a planet called Kolob.

Mormonism: Ritual Abuse Induced D.I.D. (Dissociative Identity Disorder)

The Pace Memo: Ritual Abuse in Mormon Temple

On July 19, 1990 one of the Mormon General Authorities sent out a memo to the “Strengthening Church Members Committee,” which is the modern Danite or FBI wing of the LDs, which was never supposed to be seen by the public or by the general membership of the LDS church. In the memo, which you see at the bottom of the page at the link given below, he states that he is aware of “sixty” victims of “ritualistic child abuse” within the Mormon church. Most of the victims were women and girls.

The Pace Memos: http://www.utlm.org/newsletters/no80.htm

Quote from Pace’s memo: “I don’t pretend to know how prevalent the problem is. All I know is that I have met with 60 victims. Assuming each one comes from a coven of 13, we are talking about the involvement of 800 or so right here on the Wasatch Front. Obviously, I have only seen those coming forth to get help. They are in their twenties and thirties for the most part. I can only assume that it is expanding geometrically and am horrified the numbers represented by the generation who are now children and teenagers.”

My Personal Experience:

The abuse of women and children in the church is the modern living legacy of Joseph Smith. The only encounter I ever had with a person who had D.I.D. (Dissociative Identity Disorder), which is usually caused by severe, ritualized child sex abuse, often called SRA or Satanic Ritual Abuse, was at Brigham Young University.

This woman had 2 distinct personalities with different names and different modes of dress. One was more assertive and normal than the other and this personality knew about the main one. But, the main one didn’t know about it until a tragedy occurred that caused her to go to a therapist. There, she learned about herself what I had known for a while. She had multiple personality disorder, now called D.I.D. One of her personalities was definitely not a Mormon, the other was a “Molly Mormon” (ideal Mormon or True Blue Believer), who went on to serve a mission. I never knew what happened to her.

When I discovered the fraud in the cult, I wrote her a letter telling her of my discovery. But, as a good Mormon, she could not talk to me because I was now an “apostate” (term’s usage is very hostile in Mormon parlance and is equivalent to “SP” or “Suppressive Person” in Scientology) and she never wrote me back. This is one of my many horror-filled Mormon memories.

There are more details about this story, but they would be too revealing or personally identifying. It seems extraordinary to me that I would have met even one such person since I was at BYU for less than one semester before leaving in absolute terror because of the rash of extremely violent rapes on my closest circle of friends.

There is a very high level of mental illness and prescription drug abuse among women in the church who are treated like sex objects and cattle.

Other Elements of Witchcraft and Occultism in Mormonism

There is so much more to say with regard to Mormonism past and present and the occult, but describing it and my take on it could take up a thick book. For example, there are Bee Hive groups for girls, which I was forced into when my mother first joined. Bee goddesses go back to Babylon. One of the best known is the goddess Artemis, whose priestesses were called “bees” in Greek, however, the Mormon version of this is deeply misogynistic.

Also, there is occult symbolism related to alchemy and ancient Babylonian gods on the remains of the Nauvoo, Illinois Temple. I saw these for the first time when I was very young and they seemed like a ray of hope to me, for reasons I could not explain at the time. But, they are symbols of power and to any witch or magician represent the ultimate freedom.

There’s, also, a fortunetelling ritual that is given only by Mormon men. Women, who are natural witches and diviners are not permitted to do much of anything except shut up and breed. But, men give a psychic reading called the “Patriarchal Blessing,” to certain members. I never received one of these because the perversion in the Church creeped me out severely and I was considered a rebel.

On the Mistreatment of Girls and Women in LDS Organization

The Abusive Treatment of Women and Girls in Mormonism

There is a broad range of abuses against girls and women in Mormonism that range from the chronic to the egregious. Egregious abuses include overt sexual abuse, the covering up of such abuses, the perpetuating of them and the doctrine of polygamy, which – despite their denials – is still practiced in the temple.

The chronic abuse of girls begins when they are very young. They are taught that their only purpose is to please mean, to procreate and to obey priesthood holders. As girls become older, they are seen as sexual objects and subjected to absurd clothing regulations that include being covered at all times from the lower part of the neck to the elbow and to the top of the knees. If you fail to adhere to them, as I did, girls are psychologically and psychosexually abused by members of the church.

Girls and women are expected to, essentially, be slaves. They are not considered whole people and cannot achieve salvation without the help of a man. The home life of women in the church is archaic and misogynistic. Within the organization, women are denied the priesthood and other opportunities in the church and their defense for this is that they are adhering to the will of god. They, also, point to the fact that Christianity and other similar religions (Islam, for example) oppress and discriminate against women, too.

Some members of the church, especially high ranking ones receive something called the “second anointing.” This is by invitation only and most LDS members don’t know it exists. Men who receive this second anointing are assured the highest place in heaven, regardless of what they do, short of murder. They are granted godhood and priesthood in this lifetime during the second anointing, which takes place inside the temple. It represents another degree of initiation as this term is understood in masonry and initiatory witchcraft traditions, and brings the chosen one deeper into the core of the organization. The fact that many men in the church literally believe they are gods to their wives, to their children and to other mere mortals creates a perfect environment for abuses of all kinds, especially of women and girls.

On Survival and the Difficulty of Moving On

Critics of survivors often accuse us of exaggerating our experience, engaging in “Mormon bashing” or tell us to just “forget about it and move on.” But, the Mormon experience is one that involves years and years of lies, coercion and abuse for most of us and you can’t simply “move on” or “forget” something like that. Trying to warn others about this organization is hardly “Mormon bashing” and, as you can see from many of the things I’ve mentioned above, it is no exaggeration to call Mormonism a coercive cult or to say that is founded in the occult and because of this, necessarily involves a great deal of lies and deceit.

You can leave this organization, you can physically escape them, but the damage is done and your trust of other people, organizations and certainly religion is usually destroyed beyond repair. The trauma of this experience never leaves, it lies dormant at times, only to return again like a recurring waking nightmare.

The recent discussion about the possibility of a Mormon U.S. President has reawakened a lot of trauma and pain in survivors, but it is, also, helping to blow the lid off the secrecy and abuses inherent in Mormonism and this is a good thing. I can feel the change in people’s awareness about this online. The truth will out! And, it is my hope that the truth will set more people free and help those of us who have survived this ordeal to feel less isolated and alienated.

A large number of those who escape Mormonism become atheists of one kind or another like myself. A few somehow manage to retain their faith in Christianity – this seems especially true of those who really believed themselves to be Christians as members of the church and then discover the truth about it.

I support all of those who leave Mormonism and choose to go in any direction because anything (except another coercive cult) is a healthier option for them and their families. Furthermore, I feel that my observations about the occultism in Mormonism supports what some of Mormonisms most fervent critics (Christians, especially ex-members who are now Christians) say about it.

It is important that any benevolent organization should be honest with its members and not do a bait-and-switch operation once they are more deeply committed, which is largely what the Temple Endowment Ceremony represents because it is at this point that they must swear oaths and learn the more bizarre secrets of the organization. The members are pretty deep in by this point because they can only get there if they pay all their tithes and adhere to a long list of other requirements. The Mormon Church exhibits the same mastery of psychology as we see in other cults like Scientology, they know which members are difficult or “rebels” and which ones are easy marks. They sociopathically choose their victims and psycho-sexually abuse those who are rebels, as I was.

If the Mormon “authorities,” who certainly know the truth about this organization, were honest about Mormonism, it would be a slightly more respectable organization. But, they will never tell the truth about it because, in fact, it is a very Satanic organization in that its standards and values are in opposition to those of decent people and its founder was an excellent example of a very successful black magician.

In conclusion, I would like to say that this organization is responsible for destroying and marring the lives of many people. Mine has been forever changed for good or evil by my contact with this extremely nefarious organization. I was a child of 11 years of age when the Mormons were sent to our rural country home by a friend of the family who had recently converted to Mormonism. I would probably have been better off if my mother had joined the Church of Satan, which, in a way, she did.

Exposed! The Secret Mormon General Handbook of Instructions

Click the link below to read the book the Mormon “authorities” don’t want you to read. It was exposed by none other than WikiLeaks! Thank you, Julian Assange.

Mormons consider those who discover their fraud, who won’t take their abuses and who seek to expose their fraud to the world to be “apostates.” To the rest of the English-speaking world this world simply means one who refutes a position or doctrine. But, to Mormons, who are so severely brain-washed that they accept whatever ridiculous thing they are told by the church without question, the term is equated with adulterer, murder, rapist and child molester – which is really ironic if you read about their violent and sexually perverse history.

The Mormons have maintained a protocol of coercive and intimidating behaviors they use against those who want to leave the organization or ex-members who get too much public attention. Now, you can see it for yourself!

Link: http://www.scribd.com/doc/50503206/LDS-Church-Handbook-of-Instructions-Vol-1-2010

Exceprt from the above document, regarding unbelievers or apostates:

From pages 89-90:

“…10. Church Discipline…”

“…Purposes of Church Discipline …”

“The purposes of Church discipline are (1) to save the souls of transgressors, (2) to protect the innocent, and (3) to safeguard the purity, integrity, and good name of the Church. These purposes are accomplished through private counsel and caution, informal probation, formal probation, disfellowshipment, and excommunication (see pages 93-95).

” …Protect the Innocent..”

“The second purpose of Church discipline is to protect the innocent. With inspiration, a priesthood leader should act to protect Church members when a transgressor poses a physical or spiritual threat to them, such as by physical harm, sexual abuse, drug misuse, fraud, or apostasy (see Alma 5:59-60). …”

Comment: Note that “apostasy” is conflated with physical harm, sexual abuse, drug misuse and fraud!

Interestingly, the cult of Scientology, also, uses this word in a derogatory way toward those who escape their cult. They use similar tactics, such as shunning and separating families, against survivors who try to tell people what has happened to them.

Mormon Doctrine Advocates Shunning and Murder of those Who Discover Their Fraud

Mormon History and the writings of the Mormon prophets, whom the Mormons believe speak directly to their god, are full of stories of sexual perversion and violence. To protect their power and their secrets they advocated the death of of those of us who discover the truth and want out or dare to speak the truth. The early church had a group of assassins called the Danites. The Modern LDS version of this organization is the “Committee on Strengthening the Members,” which is comprised of people within the FBI and CIA.

“I say, rather than that apostates should flourish here, I will unsheath [sic] my bowie knife, and conquer or die [Great commotion in the congregation, and a simultaneous burst of feeling, assenting to the declaration.]. Now, you nasty apostates, clear out, or judgment will be put to the line, and righteousness to the plummet [Voices, generally, ‘go it, go it.’]. If you say it is right, raise your hands [All hands up.]. Let us call upon the Lord to assist us in this, and every good work.”

Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, v. 1, p. 83; online at http://journals.mormonfundamentalism.org/Vol_01/refJDvol1-16.html

“This is loving your neighbour as ourselves; if he needs help, help him; and if he wants salvation and it is necessary to spill his blood on the earth in order that he may be saved, spill it.”

– Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, v. 4, p. 220

“If men turn traitors to God and His servants, their blood will surely be shed, or else they will be damned, and that too according to their covenants.”

Apostle Heber C. Kimball, Journal of Discourses, v. 4, p. 375

“The Mormons believe in blood atonement. It is taught by the leaders, and believed by the people, that the Priesthood are inspired and cannot give a wrong order. It is the belief of all that I ever heard talk of these things – and I have been with the Church since the dark days in Jackson County – that the authority that orders is the only responsible party and the Danite who does the killing only an instrument, and commits no wrong…. Punishment by death is the penalty for refusing to obey the orders of the Priesthood.”

“I knew of many men being killed in Nauvoo by the Danites. It was then the rule that all the enemies of the Prophet Joseph should be killed, and I know of many a man who was quietly put out of the way by the orders of Joseph and his apostles while the Church was there. It has always been a well understood doctrine of the Church that it is right and praiseworthy to kill every person who speaks evil of the Prophet. This doctrine was strictly lived up to in Utah…”

– Elder John D. Lee, Brigham Young’s adopted son and member of the Danites, John D. Lee Diaries

Mormons regard those of us who discover their fraud to be diseased and the presence of darkness itself, which is why I am often directly referred to as “Satan” or “The Adversary” by Mormons.

Remember: when you see the bitter apostate, you do not see only an absence of light, you see also the presence of darkness. Do not spread disease germs.”

– Apostle Boyd K. Packer, “The Mantle is Far, Far Greater Than the Intellect,” speech given August 1981 at BYU, Brigham Young University Studies, Summer 1981; available online at http://www.xmission.com/~country/reason/mantle.htm and http://www.mormonismi.net/kirjoitukset/bkp_mantteli.shtml

“Defectors became a kind of bogey to haunt all inhabitants of the Mormon Kingdom. Without vigilance and strength of character they [other members], like the defectors, could become overwhelmed by the baseness of their character and, thus, open to Satan’s enticements. In this way blame was shifted from the Kingdom to the individual defector. More importantly, dissent was portrayed as the outward sign of personal weakness and sin. Dissent, therefore, could no more be tolerated than sin itself. This attitude within the Kingdom militated against any legitimate expression of doubt. There was no loyal opposition within the Kingdom of God. As no dissent from orthodox opinion was allowed, either the inhabitant accepted it or he was compelled to withdraw.”

Gordon D. Pollock, “In Search for Security: The Mormons and the Kingdom of God on Earth, 1830-1844,” p. 22-23, Ph.D dissertation, Queen’s University, 1977

As you can see from the above quotes from their own leaders and histories, Mormons are really full of the love and light of Jesus Christ.

Support On-line for Mormon Cult Survivors

Here are a few places ex-members can go to remember that they are not alone.

http://www.exmormon.org – very old discussion board, wade in carefully if you post here, don’t use your own name or any personally identifying information. It is an excellent discussion board, but it is heavily trolled.

http://www.postmormon.org – this group has conferences in the Salt Lake City area for survivors

http://www.exmormonfoundation.org

http://www.mormoninfo.org this is a site for ex-Mormon Christians. I have no experience with it, but it looks like a good place to get for support for people who still identify as Christians after leaving the cult

http://www.MormonZeitgeist.com – This site contains the story of a man’s difficult journey out of the LDS church, the harassment campaign perpetrated against him and what he discovered about the organization.

Excellent BBC Documentary on Mormonism and Mitt Romney from 2012

The video below is fairly recent. It is a BBC documentary that is very well done. Because it’s British, it seems to take a fairly objective view of Mormonism in America from the perspective of someone who has no vested interest in the subject one way or the other.

At about the mid-point of the video, you will see a very revealing interview with Mitt Romney’s second cousin. This is a really good presentation. I’ve watched it more than once because I am very impressed by it and strangely comforted by seeing the truth come out and there is nothing stranger than the truth, itself, where Mormonism is concerned.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

About the Video Below

The video below was notorious in Mormon circles when I was a member and we were instructed to stay away from such “anti-Mormon” material. (The Mormons regard any view that is not pro-Mormon as anti-Mormon.) It’s called “The God Makers” and it was made in 1982. It does a very nice job explaining some of Mormonism’s most peculiar beliefs. It explains some of the things that are part of Mormon doctrine, which are so bizarre that when you, as an ex-member, try to tell other people about it, they often don’t believe you.

If you’re trying to explain to someone what you’ve been through as an ex-Mormon, the video below might be a good one to help them understand. It is older, but it’s a good, partially dramatized presentation and I couldn’t find any inaccuracies in it. The dramatization is necessary to show the level of disbelief that ex-members encounter from the general public. This is slowly changing thanks to the internet and the recent presidential run of Romney, which has thrown such aspects of Mormonism as racism, polygamy and magical underwear into the spotlight. But, this is just the tip of the iceberg, as you’ll see in the video.

I think this problem of not being believed by others when you try to tell about your experience is one of the most horrible aspects of having been exposed to Mormonism. It has a really isolating effect on people who have already lost their families and really their entire worldly foundation. This is something I have lived with my whole life and outside two of my family members I have never met face to face with another person who has escaped this cult.

It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to present to you “The God Makers” in its entirety below:

How to Leave the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

If you are currently a member and want out, the only way you can get them to stop harassing and hounding you, is to formally resign.

When I resigned back in the 1980s, I was not aware of any special procedure or that this was something I needed to do. All I knew was that I wanted the constant harassment to stop and I wanted nothing to do with this fraudulent organization. In frustration, I wrote a cease and desist letter to my local bishop and requested that they “take my name off your membership rolls” and “do not contact me, again.” It was a short letter. They harassed me a little more after, but the worst of the trouble stopped. Like a lot of people I had to move far away afterward and my contact with them never ceased entirely until my parents wised up and followed my example of sending in a resignation letter.

The main thing you must do to leave the church is send a letter to your bishop, stating your wish very firmly. I suggest that you include a cease and desist and request for no further contact. They’ll probably ignore this, but they do get sued on occasion and this could be grounds. Keep a copy of the letter you send for your own records.

If you’re in deep and you have a membership number, which you may have received on a piece of paper if you visited a temple or received a Patriarchal Blessing – yes, they give you a number, just like the IRS does – you can provide that information in your letter. But, it’s not necessary. The main thing is that you are requesting removal and to stop the harassment.

The following video illustrates the steps involved in resignation. The process doesn’t occur overnight and they will probably continue to hound you for a while. Eventually, it will all stop and you will be free!

The video suggests you remove your name by writing your request to:

Member Records Division, LDS Church
50 E. North Temple Room 1372
Salt Lake City, Utah 84150-5310

If you are being harassed to an extreme, as I was, I suggest contacting the bishop of your ward in a letter, as well (keeping a copy for your records). Tell him you’ve sent a request for removal to headquarters in Salt Lake and you wish to receive no further contact from him or the members of the ward either in person, by phone, by mail or any other method. This may or may not stave off the inevitable flurry of harassment that usually immediately follows resignation.

Comments

Harry

Yeah the reason i left was purely intellectual. I analyzed everything i could. i gathered facts from first
hand accounts of early church members. I read the criticisms from anti-mormons as well as the
defenses from pro-mormons. The fact is, when you put your feelings aside, the mountain of evidence
(some of which is covered wonderfuly in this Hub) piles up against the mormon church. I still have an
open mind about the bible. The good thing about mormonism is that it was recent enough in history and
in english so we can read the first hand accounts. Does it not trouble you that divination and using
occult items like seer stones is forbidden by God in the bible and book of mormon, yet joseph smith
used one. Not only before his vision, but after. He even used his seer stone, not the urim and thummim,
to translate the book of mormon. Martin Harris, EMma smith and others witnessed it and wrote it in
letters or journals. The church concedes the fact that joseph smith used his seer stone throughout his
life. That is just one of the many serious problems during the early years of the church. Like
oldwithcraft said, once you know that, you can’t go back.
I’ve decided to seek the truth, whatever that may be and to whatever extent we as humans can know
what is true. Would you mind telling me what your thoughts were and what you studied after leaving
the church?

TraditionalWitchcraft
Dear Harry,
Thanks for the long reply and for all of your comments here.
Yes, 23 years is a long time!
I think it is harder for people who are born in the church or BIC (Born in the Covenant) to get out. They tend not only to have greater family pressure, but more indoctrination. As the child of converts, I didn’t conform to certain things – in particular their “dress standard” – very well. I think this was a huge point, in fact. I was an only child, growing up out in the country with a swimming pool in the back yard and I lacked the connection to nudity or partial nudity and sex that the Mormons (and in fact the larger culture here in the U.S. has). I was used to wearing bikinis and jean shorts in the summer and so this put me at great odds with the Mormons. They seemed to think I was a 12-year old wanton whore and I thought they were a bunch of perverts (I still think so). I think they always regarded me as something of a loose canon, but they wanted my parents and their money and their service.
The difference between a child of converts and someone born in the church or BIC was that the latter group was probably subjected to earlier and longer indoctrination. For instance, I never went to seminary. I heard about it. I was never invited to speak or given any jobs, etc. And, as an only child, I was something of a bookish loner, so I didn’t manage very well with others in a group setting. I often wandered off just because I couldn’t take the intensity of being around so many people after a while and I had to be alone with my own thoughts. Consequently, I was yelled and screamed at by some of the Young Women’s leaders, which I’ll never forget. It was way out of line and typical.
Because we were converts, I had about 11 years of normalcy. My parents threw cocktail parties, played cards and billiards and had normal friends. These people fled when my parents got involved in with the Mormons! My grandfather, also, ran a tavern, which was kind of a family place – that was the 1970s and there were fewer weird laws than there are now – so I had grown up around that environment. I knew people who drank a beer now and then were not Satan. This is something a lot of Mormons who leave struggle with – they’re like foreigners in their own country. They have no knowledge of drinking culture and what’s normal and what isn’t.
I went to a Catholic Benedictine-run school and I had a lot of non-Mormon friends. Plus, I didn’t grow up anywhere near Utah, but in the midwest. The closer you get to ground zero, the more intense the Mormons get – in number and in weirdness. They have their own cosa nostra in Utah. I didn’t know about this until I was at BYU. That’s when I first got to see what *real* Mormons were like. And, I did not like what I saw.
I was really devastated when I discovered the extent of the fraud in the church. I still felt like there had to be answers to some of my questions about life and what it was all about, but I didn’t really know where to look. I had, always, had an interest in the occult and I pretty much dove right into that subject. One of the most interesting first books I read was the biography of Aleister Crowley (Weiser Books, now out of print) and that’s where I first saw this occult-Mormonism connection in bas relief. Crowley and Smith were cut from the same cloth and both were masons, although Smith was only a Neophyte (Nephite) and Crowley attained the very highest ranking.
As a convert with a non-Mormon past, I used to play a lot with tarot cards and playing cards, too – even when the Mormons forbade this, my family didn’t comply because we thought it was ridiculous. We always had to hide our cards whenever the Mormons came for their surprise visits! My grandfather was a brilliant card player and I was taught to play cards at a very early age. I have a collection now – of tarot and oddball playing cards – I just love them. To an extent they remind me of my card-playing taverner grandfather who is one of the best men I ever knew.
All those things were an advantage to me coming out of the cult. The worst damage I had to overcome was the years of psychosexual abuse. They are not kind to girls and women and they are particularly nasty to anyone of us who doesn’t conform well.
What I found with deprogramming is that whenever there is a thought contrary to something in the church, there is often an unpleasant emotion (fear or a sense of shame or guilt). Once you recognize that pattern of thought and emotion, you can work to stamp it out. You literally have to face down those fearful emotions because you know it’s all an illusion- it’s not *your* emotion. It’s been planted there. So, you just push past it. The main thing I had to do this with was sex because I had been taught that I was a harlot, deserving of whatever happened to me and if I actually did consent to have sex with someone I was going to be like a murderer. Sex = murder. Sex = death. This is a culture that, overall, is very unkind to women. I found a lot of healing in Europe. I spent about a year in Germany and that probably helped me to re-wire the best because they (1) do not connect nudity and sex, either and (2) really don’t care who you have sex with – it’s not an issue.
Like you, I wish we’d had this information. I was in during the Kimball years – the dark ages, literally, in terms of access to information. The only difference I can find between the Church of Satan and the Mormons is that the C of S tells you they’re a Satanic order and they’re going to take your money! Otherwise, at the core the organizations aren’t that different, although the Mormons are much more power oriented. I’ve come to see them as a masonic order disguised as Christianity.
Also, Harry,
When I first saw your comment, I was sort of bracing myself for a TBM. I’ve had a tremendous number of hits relative to comments on this article. So, I figure some of them must be TBM (True Blue Mormons). And, I find that encouraging. I really wrote it about these occult connections, but I think my own trauma is rising to the surface at the prospect of having a Mormon in office, knowing what I know about the Mormons and seeing Romney’s words and actions. I don’t like the guy we’ve got in there right now, but I do not want to live in a Mormon theocracy. I escaped them years ago and I don’t want to be put through something like that ever again!
The Mormons have been thrust into a fish bowl. And, they have hurt a lot of people. There are a lot of traumatized former members out there. This is all coming to a head and I think it could be the thing that derails their crazy train. I don’t hold out much hope for those who are really in deep, but I don’t want to see more people and their innocent children lured into this terrible psychological hell hole. I think it’s normal for survivors to want to speak out about their experiences and to warn others and that’s part of my motivation. Although, originally, I just started thinking about the occult connections in Mormonism one night and why – from that perspective – they might do some of the things they do.
Thanks very much for your comments and for reading the article.
If you want to see something amazing – I think it’s amazing, anyway – check out the video clip I have up there from YouTube that shows a Hidden Camera in the Mormon Temple. Somebody just put that up at YouTube the other day. I don’t know how long it’s going to be there before he gets his head cut off and is disemboweled or something, so check it out while you still can!

Thanks for sharing your story. Its very interesting the things that i relate to so closely, yet we obviously had very different circumstances. Yes utah is ground zero, and thats where i live. Born and raised. One thing that i think is different about mormon culture here in utah is you get a wide range of mormons. What i mean is you have the TBM’s, the ones who are holier than thou and make you feel like crap for everything, but you also have very casual mormons who attend church but dont follow any of the rules. The social pressure here keeps those that don’t really believe in the church active because they don’t want to be cast out of all their social groups. Luckily for me, neither of my parents put pressure on me to be active in the church. i did attend seminary and church occasionally simply because of the social pressure. Speaking of trying to deprogram, i know that video is on the net, but i dont want to watch it. I’ve read about what goes on in there and it creeps me out. The thought of watching it though still feels wrong to me and brings up a lot of anxiety. The thing that really blows my mind is how everyone would say the temple is such a spiritual place and you feel like God is in the room…etc. etc. I’m sure you’ve heard all the great spiritual stories. But when i heard they used to mime slashing their throat and dissembowling themselves i thought how could anyone feel good about that? Another disturbing thing to me is the thought of getting married in their. If i had followed the mormon rules then i wouldn’t have had any intimate contact with my fiance. As we go through the ceremony my soon to be wife would have been wearing that awful shield garment and been partially exposed while a complete stranger puts oil on her breasts and other areas of her naked body. That would have pissed me off. Granted i’m a bit of the jealous type, but saying thats the path i went down, i would have been furious! I imagine alot of men were probably upset with that, but what do you do right? anyway i’ve enjoyed sharing my story and hearing yours. thanks.
TraditionalWitchcraft
Harry,
Likewise!
I’m sure you will eventually be able to over come your anxiety. It takes time. I learned a powerful two-word phrase after I left the church – “f*ck you!” Once you start saying that to your oppressors, they start seeming pretty small and insignificant and usually really cowardly. And, the church is small and insignificant (and cowardly) in the big picture. As you get more comfortable, you’ll probably see that they are not worthy of your respect – although, I can certainly understand why you want to maintain some respect for your family and friends who are involved. I guess when I left, I had really lost all respect, in general – I had come to see the entire world around me as one big lie up to that point. And, I feel like I’m still going through that every now and again, as an occult researcher I’m often stumbling into things that rock my world view and cause me to re-evaluate everything. It gets to be more comfortable after a while and actually kind of fun!

I escaped back in 1984 or 1985… somewhere in there. I was pretty devastated at the time at just seeing my world, my reality and everything I’d been taught to believe fall apart. I had a friend who suggested that I go check out these ladies (mostly ladies and one old, really nice gay guy) who sat around a table once a week and discussed various metaphysical subjects. So, I did. And, this was my first introduction to a lot of ideas, like the vibratory signatures of various gemstones, healing through the hands (they were doing Reiki – I’m not keen on Reiki and have developed my own techniques that I think work a lot better and this is something I work on all the time – it’s never a static thing, where I say, “This is it. I know all I could know on this subject.” ), U.F.O.s, pyramid power, guided visualization through meditation – all of these kinds of things. So, I got broad overview of ideas from them.
Wicca was not a big trend yet. It’s very big now and it has evolved into kind of a Christianized mess in my opinion. It has pretty unwholesome beginnings. The founders were men like Joseph Smith who were looking to get naked with some young, attractive women and enjoy power. By the 1970s, it evolved into something more feminine and now it is a very beautiful new religion. But, it is, also, a mental trap – just as all religions are. It’s something modern students of the occult all look at. I have a lot of criticisms of it. But, I’m pretty much outnumbered here on HubPages by Wiccans and neo-pagans, so I don’t want to be disrespectful to them. They’re the people who read most of my articles! But, you really want to take a good look at where this religion came from and what it has become, if you get interested in it. Look at the earliest writings of Gerald Gardner, the documentaries of Alexander Sanders (he was a ham who loved the spotlight) and the writings of Doreen Valiente and Patricia Crowther. Those are the earliest and formative influences on Wicca.
The first books I started reading were written by Aleister Crowley. When you first start reading some of his material, some of it seems like nonsense. But, when you put it together with other material from various Hermetic orders, it slowly starts to make sense.
I think the important thing to keep in mind for someone who is a spiritual abuse survivor is not to get into the trap of “following” someone or deifying anyone or anything. This is a tendency that seems to get programmed into people when they’re exposed to Christianity – or maybe it’s just some people’s nature to look for a leader to follow. (It reminds me of the Life of Brian when he’s trying to tell them he’s not the messiah and to stop following him – the next thing you know there’s a hoard of people waiting to see the messiah!) Look at their work and what they can teach you and don’t get caught up in the cult of personality. This is less of a problem in occultism – but, it’s still something to consider. In the world of the occult, knowledge serves us and not the other way around.
Israel Regardie of the Golden Dawn did some marvelous work. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn exposed the secret societies and all of their knowledge. It’s a lot to wade through! And, there’s a variety of related things in it – the study of the tarot, for example, is closely related to the study of astrology, numerology and the Kaballah. If you study these things in a systematic way and then apply them, you’ll be amazed at what you can do and how the mysteries of the world start to unfold. Its’ what it was designed to do. I prefer the Book of Thoth. That’s Crowley’s deck – Crowley was a creep and a dubious character – but some of his analysis is brilliant. Take the wheat and leave the schaff.
Franz Bardon’s work is brilliant and one of the easiest to understand, he purposely tries to demystify things for the student.
If you like a particular area – for example – I really get into the Norse stuff. I have a lot of German ancestry and I speak German almost like a native. So, I jumped into the history and the lore in a big way. Find a passion like that and pursue it. Study all of their myths, legends, follklore, language, etc.
Personally, I like Dion Fortune. She was a member of the Golden Dawn, also. Some people think her work is too Christian and she was a Christian, but it’s, also, very good.
Look into various forms of alternative healing, as well. Homeopathy and radionics both work with the same esoteric science. There is no mystery to me about how these things work, although mainstream scientists are either completely confounded by it or deny that it works. It is all based on esoteric science – it’s not mysterious or weird, if you understand it.
Those are just a few of the best things I can think of off the top of my head. The main thing is that you pursue whatever interests you and don’t give your mind away to an idea, an ideal, a person or a presumed god – and keep looking for that light – the illumination. I don’t know that there’s an answer – maybe there is and maybe there isn’t. But, pursuing this knowledge has made my life better and I don’t could do anything else, really.

Most religions seem to be about control, power and money. The carrot offered is consistently the same thing: some sort of infinite existence. The idea that we may be finite beings seems to instill deep fears in most of the people I know. This fear makes people vulnerable to brainwashing and fleecing.
I will never understand what is so scary about a state of non- existence. I do think the actual process of death is scary, but a state of total unawareness is just that.

TraditionalWitchcraft

Jack,

Thank you for you comment and your insights. I absolutely agree with you.
The carrot in Mormonism involves the belief that “families are forever” and only the Mormons have the “authority” to ensure that you will be with your family members through “all time and eternity” by virtue of them being sealed to you in a temple ritual. Once people believe in that, driven by the fear that death will separate their family (after all Xian marriages say, “’til death do us part”), they will do anything to keep their family together.
When I left, I remember this was my poor mother’s fear at the time, that we would be separated in death!
The other Mormon carrot they dangle is the belief in a Celestial Kingdom or a highest heaven. Only here will you be reunited with your fictional Heavenly Father (although, this figure is so narcissistic and tyrannical that I could never figure out why anyone would want to be in his presence). If you fail to live up to Mormon principles, which are set so high (“be ye perfect, just as Your Father in Heaven is perfect”) that no one possibly could, you will, at the very least, be relegated to the Telestial or Terrestial Kingdoms and you will never become a god.
Once people buy the initial premise that only Mormonism and a belief in and blind adherence to its doctrines can ensure their family unity after death, the Mormons have got them! And, they manipulate them with the fear of loss, desolation and separation from their loved ones – not only in the hereafter, but in the here and now. The family is used as leverage against those who want out and many people – like the previous poster we called “hi” above – are essentially trapped out of respect for their families and a fear of being cut off, losing jobs, losing community standing, etc.

Finally! A hub that speaks the truth about the Mormons and their connection with the Occult! I am amazed at the amount of research you put into this hub, and and your wide range of knowledge about Occult matters! I found this hub by reading your comments on one of GracieLinda’s hubs that I found poorly researched and miss-leading.
I practiced the Occult for about twenty years, and I am now a Christian, and yet I am more open minded than many. This is because I believe that it is up to God to judge, not me!
I find it interesting that you state that many witches are Atheist, and I found this this is quite true, in both Wicca and Satanism. When I was involved in “The Dark Arts” I did believe in God, I just thought he was not the good guy!
I have now found relationship with a God that has turned out to be much different than the way I was raised to perceive Him. I will read much more of your hubs for you are great writer and researcher, even though are beliefs differ I feel you one I can respect….even if time comes that we find ourselves in a debate!

TraditionalWitchcraft

Lois,

Hello! Thank you for your kind and very interesting comment.
The more research we do, the more open-minded we become. At least, this has been true in my case as I continue to shatter one previous held idea after another, it seems. Leaving Mormonism was the first such event for me and now my life has been a series of these discoveries.
Re: Most witches are atheists. World-wide, this is absolutely true. Although, many newcomers to witchcraft still have Christian ideas about things, so they tend to regard the gods and goddesses of witchcraft as something more akin to the god of the Jews or the Christians. This is where they are in their understanding of things. A lot of them are very confused and spiritually and psychologically injured in some way, no doubt, and trying to find their way out of the maze. Mormonism is only one of many destructive cults in the mix. There are many others.
Whatever conclusion you come to, it is good that you arrive at it through independent research and some sort of reasoning process. I like to encourage people to research before they commit their minds, their hearts – and in the case of the Mormons, 10% of their gross income and the risk of losing their entire family to a group of people who are not what they appear to be on the surface.
Again, thanks very much for your comment.

The roots of Mormonism are Druid, Greek and Egyptian mysticism. What you’ve covered here is a highly accurate description of this organization’s theatrical mask and stage props. The negative core of this SSO is it was engineered to penetrate US domestic and political infrastructure as a repatriation project for the monarchy. Deeper still, LDS is a black mass sacrifice entity what activity is directed at breeding down intelligence in the mainstream and breeding it up in the elite. They take the Eve Novus in pairs, immediately sacrifice one and rape the second bringing her to term and sacrificing her as well just moments before they deliver her fetus, she laying dead from having her heart cut out while alive. THIS is the Mormon church and this organization performed 300 thousand of these “occult rendition” ceremonies 1900- 2000 in the US alone.
TraditionalWitchcraft
Frank,
This is very interesting. I would appreciate it if you could point the way to any online references or books on this. The Tanners and Ed Decker have done some research that goes pretty deep into the occult roots of Mormonism. I’m not sure all of the information Decker was given is correct, though – he had a guy feeding him info. who has a dubious background. Most of Decker’s work is right on, though.\
If you can, please, explain the SSO connection. This is the first I’ve heard of it.
As far as this goes: “…political infrastructure as a repatriation project for the monarchy.” Their interest in genealogy is not really about baptisms for the dead. They’re definitely looking for certain bloodlines. I have an article on the Plantagenets that I just published that touches on this slightly. The bloodlines of the the monarchy of England, France and the ancient German Kings is here in the United States. There is an occult connection that is of importance to them, but it is so bizarre that I hesitate to mention it without further explanation. I plan to write another article about it that has to do with perception of frequency ranges… essentially, those with a lot of the bloodline are not operating on the same frequency as most other people.
You will find few people, at least, in the U.S. who have less of a regard for girls and women – we are like cattle to them and our lives have the same value to the Mormons. I would really like to read more about the Eve Novus ceremony…. I can’t find anything in a Google search.
I don’t doubt the things you say. If you have any references or places to read further about them, please, post them here.
Thank you for your very interesting comment.
Diane
Wow, it took some very in-depth research to do this HUB….I have been interested in finding the link in all of this and you did it! Am I ever glad I was perusing the Exclusive Hubs tonight. I was brought up in Pentecostalism which is witchcraft, and has its roots in this stuff you write about. I think its so sad that this all occurs in the United States, and that people can hardly get out of it without a struggle. I was out at 21 which seems interesting huh? Pentecostalism and this is so similar, they do allow Freemasonry in the Church, I have always thought they did it behind the scenes or something. I hope you will write me, as I have thought of doing a Hub on this as I said but did not know where to start. I hope and pray that people get it right and get out of it…It took me three denominations and 30 yrs to find the Roman Catholic Church which I am a member of, and will stay a member of. I am glad you had the courage to write this Hub, it is and will help others. May Jesus Mary and the Angels, be with you.

TraditionalWitchcraft
Dear Diane,
Thank you for the comment. I would like to read a hub about your Pentecostal experience. I have just done a little outsider’s research on them and they appear to be a fusion of African spiritualism and Christianity. They churned out some great white singers and musicians with a “black sound” back in the 1950s. My great-grandmother was an early Pentecostal. I didn’t know her, but my mom says she was a little nutty about some things – some other things she and I agree about. For example, she thought television was evil (wouldn’t allow it in the house and said it was “the devil”) and she had nothing to to with allopathic medicine. But, the Pentecostals use overt methods of hypnosis on their members, then they tell them that the effect they’re experiencing is the work of God. I have often wondered how intelligent people can get sucked into cults and while the answer is complex, I feel certain that hypnosis is a major component!
Mormonism is a reconstructionist religion. They are not Protestants. The basis of Protestantism is, of course, Catholicism. But, Mormonism really is built on the foundation of freemasonry.
When I was in the Mormon organization (the Morgue) back in the 1980s, members were strongly discouraged from joining an masonic groups. That changed some time later.
Here’s an excerpt from the Wikipedia article on Mormonism and Freemasonry ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mormonism_and_Freemas ):
“From 1925 to 1984 the Grand Lodge of Utah prohibited Latter-day Saints from joining, but no other Grand Lodge followed this ban and Mormons were free to join Lodges outside Utah. In 1984 the Grand Lodge of Utah officially dropped its anti-Mormon position and allowed LDS church members to join. Today there is no formal obstacle in Utah or in any other Grand Lodge preventing Mormons from becoming Freemasons.”
“The presidency of the LDS Church has not made an official statement as to whether or not Freemasonry is compatible with Mormonism. However Don LeFevre, a past spokesman for the church has said the church “…strongly advises its members not to affiliate with organizations that are secret, oath-bound, or would cause them to lose interest in church activities.”[8] There are many LDS Masons in Utah and other Grand Lodges who serve and have served in various leadership positions, including Grand Masters, other Grand Officers, and Worshipful Masters.”
It looks like a conflict of interest since Mormon men who are masons would have to take oaths of loyalty (their worldly goods, their lives, etc.) to two different masters.
Some time back in the 1990s, I think it was, the Mormons dropped their blood oaths, but my parents will not discuss any of the temple activities because of the threats that were made to them there. Furthermore, my mother won’t discuss it because of the bizarre, sexually perverted anointing rituals. Lots of sex crime victims had trouble coping with some of those rituals, so they have changed them since then.
The Mormons have had to do a lot of adjusting since the late 1990s, largely due to the work of people like Steve Benson who runs the forum, Recovery from Mormonism at http://www.exmormon.org . It’s a place where Mormon cult survivors share their stories and get support from one another. (Leaving the church – if you can get out, at all – can devastate your life!) It’s had a secondary function of exposing the activities of the church very publicly and this hit fever pitch last year with the unsuccessful run of Mitt Romney.

Diane
Jeepers! I didn’t know they were using hypnosis.
TraditionalWtichcraft,
Diane,
Re: Hypnosis. LOL! All religions use some kind of hypnosis, but they don’t all use the same techniques. The Mormons use boredom! You go to three hours of meetings while you’re exhausted and listen to them drone on about the same things and your conscious mind begins to shut down out of fatigue. Pretty soon you’re repeating phrases that are not your own, just like Frank Sinatra in “The Manchurian Candidate” movie: “Raymond Shaw is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I’ve ever known in my life. ”
Only with the Mormons it is:
“I know that the Church is true. I know that it is lead by a True Prophet of God, Thomas S. Monson. I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that Joseph Smith was a True Prophet of God and that he restored the one and only True Church to the earth. I am so grateful that I belong to the True Church and I know that if we faithfully follow its teachings we will be found worthy to return to Heavenly Father’s kingdom. I know that the Book of Mormon is true.”
The Pentecostals are more overt. Tom Silver, the famous stage hypnotist, uses hypnotic induction (induction is the initial trance state in hypnosis – stage hypnotists, also, use them to test the susceptibility of their subjects to suggestion) techniques that are almost identical to raw video I’ve seen of Pentecostal churches.
They all use psychological techniques, too, like “normative conformity” – everyone else is doing something, so even if you think it might be wrong, you go along with everyone else because you don’t want to be the odd one in the group.

Diane
I think I may have missed something???What do you believe now? Are you Christain or some other religion, I sure hope the Mormonism experiences did no cause to be an unbeliever in God. Again you may writ me at address given on your fan mail…I would love to hear from you …I will not try to convert you..but hope you have peace.
TraditionalWitchcraft

Diane,
I made the logical leap from witchcraft-based Mormonism to regular or traditional witchcraft as soon as I got out of there. In my intro. to this article, I mention how lots of Mormon women get into goddess-centered neo-paganism (Wicca, for example) in some form because it is similar to Mormonism. Lots become pagans or atheists. I usually describe myself as an atheist with an esoteric scientific world view.
I consider the Mormons my first introduction to the occult and Satanism.

Diane
I see. I am surprised that you did not turn against the idea altogether. I am sorry it all happened to you.

TraditionalWitchcraft
Diane,
Not all witchcraft is evil. It’s power – just like electricity is power. With Mormonism it was just in the hands of an evil man, Joseph Smith, who created a masonic-style cult with an outer circle that appears to be Christian – as you get deeper into the organization, you slowly discover it is something else, altogether. Mormonism is a black lodge within a white lodge. Lots of organizations that appear to be good on the outside are wicked at the core.
In my article I describe the Mormons as a Luciferian religion, which they are, but it is a wicked form of it. Pure Luciferianism is liberation. To me slavery in any form is evil – and that’s what all religion is, it’s a man (almost always man) who wants to dominate and subjugate others.
I am very much opposed to Mormonism. Its founder was a black magician, but that doesn’t mean witchcraft or even black magic is evil.
Diance
Not sure if I want to know the difference in white and black here but tell me anyway….My ex husband swore he was not a Mason, but his Dad was, and thinking back, he must have been, they said I was matriarch of family, I am now Catholic and do not believe in all of it

TraditionalWitchcraft
Diane,
Black lodge is an old term used in occultism to describe the use of nefarious witchcraft by a masonic-style organization.
Further regarding the Mormon use of hypnotic suggestion:
The Mormons use a suggestive technique on new prospects. The missionaries are taught to knock on doors and theb present certain limited facts about the church (meat before milk, they call it – they don’t tell you the rest of it ’til you’re “in” and committed). They talk about how God loves you and you can be united with him and live with your entire family together in the highest kingdom of heaven in the presence of Heavenly Father. Then, they give you a gift, The Book of Mormon, and they tell you to read the book and pray about it and if it’s true the Lord will tell you. If they’ve given their presentation correctly and, especially if the people have just had a trauma in their lives (lost a family member, in my mother’s case), the people are open to the suggestion given and this is why they say they “know” the church is true. It’s not a logical knowing, but a hypnotic suggestion that they will know. They had this “spiritual experience,” which was really hypnotic suggestion, but they were told before hand that God would speak to them this way, so this is what they believe.

Witchcraft and the Occult: Evangelical Christian Demonology and Imprecatory Black Magic Prayers

The New Evangelical Christian Demonology

JeebusA group of Evangelical Christians called Dominionists who are part of the National Apostolic Reformation (NAR) make extensive use of imprecatory prayers (Biblical curses) and have their own demonology, some of which is newly invented.

This group of Evangelicals practice black magic in the sense that they use powers, generated through high emotion, which they believe come from their god to curse their enemies. They make use of vivid imagery and violent language. This Christian death cult believes that it is at war with spirits that have a direct influence on present day events. They attribute natural disasters to the hand of god.

They believe that by prayer, they can ask for their god to control these demons. They, also, believe that by imprecatory or malefic prayer, they can curse their enemies. Demons are attributed by them as the cause of disease and unwanted behaviors, such as addiction or “sin.” They have their own method of saying prayers (and beating people with Bibles, according to some accounts from people I know who have been subjected to their abuses) to “exorcise” demons, which they call “deliverance.”

They differ from other Christians in that they believe in extra-biblical prophesy and many of their leaders and members claim to have received visions of a violent future for the U.S. and the world.

List of Christian Evangelical Demons

The Harlot: A sun goddess that seduces and has sex with world leaders. (“Wagner’s Insane Demonology. Retrieved October 13, 2012. http://freethoughtblogs.com/dispatches/2011/10/11/wagners-insane-demonology)

Statue of Liberty: “The Queen of Heaven,” which they believe is an ancient Egyptian goddess. A group of these Christians, called the DC40, met around the time of Halloween in 2011 to curse the statue.

Baal: An ancient god of the Cananites of Africa. They believe this is the god of the Masons.

Beliel: Figures heavily in their doctrines; an ancient spirit of deceit. They believe him to be “Satan.”

Catholic Saints: All Catholic saints are believed to be “spirits of darkness.” NAR leader, C. Peter Wagner urged his followers to burn statues of the saints.

Molech: A Cananite spirit (may be Melek T’aus, the “peacock angel” of the Yezidis of present-day Iraq) accused of accepting the sacrifice of children in the Old Testament. They believe this is another name for “Satan.”

The usage of the term “Satan” by Christians, in general, is very confusing. It is unclear if Satan is one personage or multiple personages with a shared name. It seems to vary at their convenience. “Satan” is, of course, another term for “adversary.” “Satan” is, also, anyone who disagrees with them.

There is a hierarchy of demons with kings in charge of lower ranking demons. In Christian spiritual warfare, they ask god to destroy the king demon. This has some things in common with classical Western demonology, in which the there is a hierarchy that must be appealed to. For instance, in the Lesser Key of Solomon, when the conjurations fail to produce a demonic manifestation, the king of the particular demon is invoked.

The Use of Imprectory Prayers

Imprecatory prayers are prayers from the bible for the death and destruction of enemies. Usually, the prayers involve trying to dominate the will of the person who is their target, but if this fails, they ask their god to destroy the person in a number of different ways, including financially and eventually call for their death. Interestingly, some Christians seem to have difficulty pronouncing the word “imprecatory.” They spell it correctly, but pronounce it like “impregnatory.”

Psalm 109, especially verse 8, is popularly prayed against President Obama. At least, one person, Sgt. Matthew New, has lost his military career for praying for the death of the Commander in Chief. Since Obama entered office, caps, t-shirt, bumper stickers and other items urging people to “Pray for Obama” have popped up. These wishes for his death have been interpreted as the threat they are. (“Sergeant Suspended for Imprecatory Prayer Against President Obama,” by Sarah Jones, January 4, 2011. Retrieved on October 10, 2012. http://www.politicususa.com/sergeant-prayer-obama.html)

“Unfortunately this isn’t an isolated incident. On Fox News Radio (the Alan Colmes show) in June of 2009, Wiley Drake, pastor of First Southern Baptist Church in Buena Park, Calif., and former running mate of American Independent Party presidential candidate Alan Keyes, admitted to using imprecatory prayers against now- murdered abortion provider Dr Tiller. “(Ibid)

Christian Murderer, Scott Roeder, Says There Will Be More Anti-Woman Violence

Wiley Drake, who endorsed Mike Huckabee for the office of President of the U.S., is well-known for his use of imprecatory prayers. Dr. George Tiller was an abortion provider in Wichita, Kansas who was murdered on May 31, 2009 by Scott Roeder, a member of a violent anti-woman organization. After Roeder murdered Dr. Tiller, he said, “I am glad George Tiller is dead,” and he called Dr. Tiller, who was a beloved physician, “a brutal, murdering monster” and said he is “grateful to God” for his murder. (“Ex-Southern Baptist Leader: Abortion Doctor’s Murder Answer To Prayer” Retrieved October 13, 2012. http://www.kwtx.com/home/headlines/46761742.htmler Dr Tiller.)

These Christians believe that the imprecatory prayers are good because they believe that their good god is going to destroy “the wicked.” To them this is “god’s judgment” being visited upon their enemies, which is a demonstration of the “love of god.” Much like the old Medieval witch hunters, they believe it is better for a person to die than to live a life of “wickedness.”

List of Popular Imprecatory Prayers

There are many cursing prayers in the Bible, but the most popular are probably Psalm 109, which is mentioned above, and Psalm 137.

This is part of Psalm 109, it is only a portion of this hair-raising curse against an enemy:

“Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand. When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin. Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places. Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour. Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children. Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out. Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the Lord; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. Let them be before the Lord continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth. Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.”

Similar curses to the above have been documented to be used by Voodoo practitioners like the legendary Marie LaVeau.

This is part of Psalm 137:

“If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy. Remember, O Lord, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof. O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.”

For more curses, see Psalms 7; 35; 52; 55; 58; 59; 69 and 79.

These Psalms are used to request the destruction of enemies:

Psalm 5:10; 21:8-12; 28:4,5; 31:17-18; 35:3a,4-8,20-21,24-26; 40:14-15; 54:5; 55:15; 56:6b-7; 59:5-8,11-15; 63:9-11; 69:22-28; 79:6,7,12; 110:6; 137:7-9; 139:19-22; 140:9-11; 141:10; 143:12).

The Psalms are, of course, partially attributed to the Hebrew Sorcerer, King Solomon, who is the pagan king revered by the Masons, whose work is, also, admired by many modern witches. Therefore, you should certainly feel free to use these prayers in your own spells and rituals.

Other good sources for Christian curses and maledictions is the Book of Jeremiah:

Jeremiah 11:18-20; 15:15-18; 17:18; 18:19-23; 20:11,12; 42:18; 44:12

Genesis 12:3, “The one who curses you I will curse.” and :I will bless those who bless you…And in you all the families of the earth will be
blessed.”

Dangers of Christian Evangelical Black Magicians

This particular group of Evangelicals is very deceptive. While all of Christianity is based on a fictional foundation, the Dominionists or NAR have gone to great lengths to re-write American and world history. They refuse to accept commonly known, well-established and logical scientific concepts in favor of fantasy.

Part of their belief involves the Seven Mountains movement and the concept of the Apocalypse. They believe that their people must completely take over seven areas of life, which are business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, the family and religion, before Jesus will return and take only certain faithful believers with him. This is portrayed in the “Left Behind” series of books and films. ]

They, also, believe that wars must begin between the modern state of Israel and countries in the Middle East dominated by Muslims before the faithful will be rescued by their savior. George W. Bush, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Pat Robertson, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, Michelle Bachman and other prominent household political names are members of this group.

These black magicians have entered popular political life by stealth, by keeping secret their true beliefs and intentions. One of their “spiritual warfare” headquarters is the International House of Prayer Kansas City in Kansas City, Missouri.

They believe in something called “Joel’s Army,” which is based on the biblical book, Joel 2. This is a Luciferian doctrine, that teaches that certain among them will become gods and powerful sorcerers, able to raise the dead and perform other acts of witchcraft. The problem with their belief is that they believe that, as gods, they have to power to pass judgment and destroy their enemies, which, again, is anyone who disagrees with them. (Note: This is a perverted form of Luciferianism, much like the Mormon belief that they can become gods on earth through Second Anointing and in the after life by means of polygamy. Please, see my article on Lucifer and Luciferianism.)

These Christian black magicians do not simply recite prayers and make war with demonic entities, they are very organized and capable of violence.

The next time a Christian says they’re going to “pray for you” – remember this! I suggest throwing a little curse back in their direction.

A Traditional Witch’s Solution to the Problem of Christians, Pro-Lifers and Rape Supporters Who Are Trying to Destroy Women

The 3-Part Solution

(SEW) – Silence, Education and Will!

Educate Yourself About Witchcraft

Education is the first and most important aspect of this three-part solution. Witches must educate themselves and their children as we have always done about witchcraft and the healing arts. We must, also, continue to educate ourselves about the nature of the enemy, which has really changed very little over the centuries. Education, also, leads to understanding about the importance of the other two aspects: Silence and will.

On the other hand, there’s no point in trying to educate the ineducable. There is no point in trying to educate Christians about witchcraft, health, science or anything else that requires research or analysis. They don’t even think women are human beings, so it won’t matter what you say to them.

Educate Yourself About the Enemy

Christian pro-lifers are supporters of pro-rape legislation in this country and de facto supporters of rapists and rape. They value the rapist and his semen over the life of any woman. If you’ve ever tried to reason with a rapist, then you know the difficulty of trying to reason with a pro-lifer. They are one and the same and are bent on whatever violence they plan to do to you.

The entire country has had an opportunity to see what those of us who live among them deal with every day. They have revealed themselves to the entire nation with statements from Vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan who finds rape an acceptable “method of conception;” Sen. candidate Todd Akin of Missouri who stated women who are raped do not usually become pregnant and who did not even acknowledge the victim in his comments; and Sen. Smith of Pennsylvania who likened pregnancy from rape to pregnancy “out of wedlock.” We have seen the junk science and religious zealotry behind these insane statements in the past few days. And, the entire country has had an opportunity to see how dangerous these men and their perverse ideology is to women and children.

August 29th, Senator Lindsey Graham (Republican from So. Carolina) said to the Washington Post, “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.” How are they planning on solving this problem? Apparently, by redefining “rape” to legitimize it and outlawing abortion and most forms of contraceptives.

Educate yourself about their beliefs and be aware of how dangerous they are to you. For your own safety, do not entertain them in your home and never turn your back on them. These are people who use their god and their bible to justify rape and other violence against women and children. They should be taken seriously because they pose a very real and palpable threat, especially in the middle part of the U.S.

You can see why, in these states, you would be wise not to come out of the broom closet. You cannot live your life openly as witch and it is very difficult to even live openly as an independent woman. Our businesses are targeted and we are targets even in our own homes

Ignoring the problem or pretending it doesn’t exist will not make it go away. They have grown stronger in the past few years while pagan groups have stood by silently as if nothing were happening. Only atheists groups and some small academic groups who advocate reason have raised any objection against them. Their small voices have been silenced in the Christian-dominated media and wherever attempts to silence these voices of reason have failed they have been ridiculed.

Silence and Will

Silence is golden.

If you are raped or become the target of a sex criminal (a very likely possibility if you live in the United States), think twice about reporting anything to law enforcement. Law enforcement will probably treat you like a criminal. They will treat your body like a crime scene with no regard for you as a human being. Women who have been raped have been jailed to force them to testify after they’ve made a report. If you fail to prove your claim, which is nearly impossible, you may be charged – there are numerous incidences of this. So, think twice.

The only justice you will have in this situation is that you make for yourself. Use black magic and keep silent about what you do. Talking about it not only compromises the working, but it makes you vulnerable in other ways.

Be careful who you confide in about rape because you never know who a rapist is until it is too late and if some men find out you survived an attack, they may attempt to finish the job. The ongoing trauma of surviving rape is learning that there is really no one you can trust. It is important for your own safety to accept this as soon as you can and work from within this reality.

When the Will is properly applied, results in the physical world follow.

Black magic causes changes to occur in the outer environment, but it all begins with your mind, the force of your thoughts and your will.

Use what you know and use your will. If you came to witchcraft from a Christian background or were indoctrinated by Wiccans, remember and take comfort in this: There is no god! Therefore, there is no judgment from god in any form. Do what you know is right – do it silently!

If you feel you absolutely must have some law, rule or guideline to live by, then here are two good ones to choose from: “Do right and fear nothing!” from the Old Norse Havamal and “Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law,” from Liber AL by Aleister Crowley.

Do not let the Christians destroy your will and your desire to see right and justice prevail. If you believe in the Wiccan Rede, Karma and the 3-Fold Law, learn the truth about these things. They were invented in the 1970s by a group of now defunct Wiccans called the “Council of American Witches” in Minneapolis, Minnesota to try to convince the Christians that witches and Wiccans, in particular, are not what we are and that they shouldn’t be afraid of us. But, they are lies. They are harmful to the people who believe they are real and they do nothing to allay the fears of Christians who loathe and despise us all, regardless.

Educate Yourself About Health and Natural Pregnancy Prevention

Witches know how to deal with many problems related to reproduction including fertility and infertility. It is easier to use contraception to prevent an unwanted pregnancy than it is to get rid of something you don’t want. Using contraception takes away some of the fear of rape. At least, with contraception, you know that if you survive an attack, you are less likely to become pregnant.

Contrary to what ignorant, Christian men think, pregnancy from rape is not uncommon. Furthermore, rape, itself, is extremely common. Preventing rape is impossible because only a rapist can prevent rape by choosing not to rape and they now have more reason than ever before, thanks to Christian legislators, to continue their violence.

If you survive, the prevention of pregnancy is the only thing you may have some control over in this situation.

The Source Insane 13th Century Christian “Medical” Doctrines

The following article shows where Todd Akin and others like him get their bizarre misinformation: ‘Rape can’t cause pregnancy’: A brief history of Todd Akin’s bogus theory

Although, it has its roots in long-discredited, 13th century medical practices, Akin’s pro-rape, anti-woman philosophy seems to come directly from John C. Wilkie, a physician who was once president of the National Right to Life Committee. The following is from Christian Life Resources in 1999:

“Finally, factor in what is is certainly one of the most important reasons why a rape victim rarely gets pregnant, and that’s physical trauma. Every woman is aware that stress and emotional factors can alter her menstrual cycle. To get and stay pregnant a woman’s body must produce a very sophisticated mix of hormones. Hormone production is controlled by a part of the brain that is easily influenced by emotions. There’s no greater emotional trauma that can be experienced by a woman than an assault rape. This can radically upset her possibility of ovulation, fertilization, implantation and even nurturing of a pregnancy. So what further percentage reduction in pregnancy will this cause? No one knows, but this factor certainly cuts this last figure by at least 50 percent and probably more.”

The above is an example of the kinds of things Christians tell each other – and which they apparently believe. This recent nation-wide public airing of their idiocy and cruelty is nothing new. Other “Christ-like” quotes from Republicans include the statement from Texas gubernatorial nominee who said that rape is like the weather, “If it’s inevitable, just relax and enjoy it” (http://www.nytimes.com/1990/03/26/us/texas-candidate-s-comment-about-rape-causes-a-furor.html) Later, he said that he was only joking. Apparently, he felt he was only making a “sex” joke.

in January 2012, then Republican Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum, a militant Catholic, said that women should accept the “gift of rape.”

“Well, you can make the argument that if she doesn’t have this baby, if she kills her child, that that, too, could ruin her life… I believe and I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created — in the sense of rape — but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you.

“As you know, we have to, in lots of different aspects of our life. We have horrible things happen. I can’t think of anything more horrible. But, nevertheless, we have to make the best out of a bad situation.”

What do you suppose men like these do when no one is looking – when they’re with a woman who is not a member of the flock? Would you let any of these people into your home or allow them around your children?

Witchcraft and the Healing Arts

Some forms of natural contraception are effective, can be done cheaply and some of them actually improve your immune system. How exactly this is done, I cannot tell you here (the laws of the land make such a discussion illegal or dangerous, at best), but it is done just as there are methods of enhancing fertility when you want to have a child that are natural and available growing in the woods throughout parts of the U.S. Independent studies have been conducted on some of these things by women themselves and by health researchers in so-called third world countries.

There are, also, natural methods of getting rid of an unwanted pregnancy. It is not 100% safe, but it exists and it has always existed and it always will. Because of centuries of ongoing Christian persecution, these things cannot be spoken about publicly (they are illegal to use in many states and people have been arrested for doing so), but there are breadcrumbs for research in this article in the books shown in the Amazon ads. You will have to dig, do research and use your own judgment about the information you find. Sometimes you will have to read between the lines because the laws are so strict regarding the dissemination of this information that it is difficult to write about this topic without running into potential legal problems. This is more of the love of Christ in action.

I have known about many of these things for more than 25 years. I began researching them deeper many years ago because I saw then where this country was headed in terms of Christian religious fanatics who just cannot leave other people – especially women – alone!

I watched them reduce punishment for rapists, condone rape, engage in state rape and make it difficult to get contraception and health care, including abortion since the late 1970s. The acceptance of rape, in particular, state-sanctioned rape or just “state rape,” has long been a problem in the U.S. It is no exaggeration to say that the U.S. is a nation of people who love and condone rape. It is a nation dominated by Christian religious zealots who loathe women, womanhood and anything else of true beauty and value.

Arm yourselves against these dangerous people – both in the physical sense and with education. Use witchcraft; use your knowledge; use your will and be fearless. But, work in the shadows – just like they do. Do not foolishly come out in the open to become a target for them. We are severely outnumbered and they have their people in positions of power. How do you suppose someone like Todd Akin got to be on the House Science Committee? Please, see my other article on “Witches and Religious Tolerance: Do Witches Owe Tolerate or Respect Christians?” – at the bottom are lists of groups working against us, in particular look for “National Apostolic Reformation,” “Seven Mountains,” “Christian Supremacy “and “Dominionism.”

These dark forces of Christian tyranny and oppression have labored in the shadows for decades, but they are openly aligning against us, now. Even if Romney loses the upcoming presidential election, it will not stop the Christian-infected Republican Party from continuing to legislate against us, against our well-being, our physical safety and our very existence.

You must educate yourselves now. If you’re interested in witchcraft – real witchcraft, as opposed to the slick, impotent Hollywood version of things that is being peddled by the major publishing houses – this is it.

Remember these three things: (SEW) – Silence, Education and Will!

Getting to Know the Enemy

Regarding Comments

This article is for witches – actual witches… not Hollywood witches and not Christians.

I am leaving the comment section open, but I will not accept hateful comments from Christians justifying or supporting rape or rapists. The pro-life position and the rapists’ position on women’s bodies are 100% identical.

Furthermore, I will instantly delete comments that are abusive toward me or other women and those that attempt to justify Christian abuses of women by saying that it is customary or “everybody else does it.”

The Christians in this country have been coddled and given a pass while they rape and abuse women and children in the name of god! It’s well past time for this to stop!

A Traditional Witch’s Guide to Understanding Christian Nationalism

The first Faith-based InitiativeChristian Nationalism is a very well organized, Bible-based political movement. Like many authoritarian movements, they have a hierarchical structure. They are militantly anti-pagan and anti-woman. Christian Nationalism is another name for the Dominionism and the Seven Mountains Movement, which is an extremely militant form of Christian Evangelism. Christian Nationalism is, also, called Christian Supremacy. These ideologies, by whatever name, all maintain that Christians have a divine right to rule the earth. They maintain that the Bible, not the Constitution, is the rightful law of the U.S. Ultimately, they want to destroy all dissent and kill “heretics.”

They have their own version of history and science, which is taught at their seminaries and in their churches. Since the September 11, 2001 attack on the Trade Center in New York, Christian Nationalists are, also, modern crusaders who think that their religious beliefs determine what happens to their souls after death. They believe that by protecting Israel and waging war against the “infidel” Muslims, they are fulfilling “end-time” prophesy.

The Rise of Christian Nationalism After 9/11

According to Michelle Goldberg, author of “Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism,” approximately 40% of the U.S. is Evangelical. About 10 to 15% of the population are associated with the most militant aspects of the movement.

The Christian effort to subvert constitutional government has been going on for decades. Their plan is already very nearly complete. You can see that now most of our founding fathers, people like Thomas Jefferson, could not be elected because they are not Christian enough. Only Christians or people who profess to be Christians are allowed to hold any high office. In many parts of the U.S., only Christians are permitted to hold any kind of office. The chance of a person who lives openly as witch being elected anywhere outside of Salem, Massachusetts is zero. Atheists and other rationalists are all in the same boat. Unless you, at least, claim to share in the Christian fantasy world, you are not likely to receive the opportunity to have any real say in your government at any level.

In the 1970s the “Faith Based Initiative,” a form of Christian evangelism that is effected through government, was formulated. It is an Un-Constitutional and thoroughly wicked alliance between government and Christian churches in the U.S. The White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships (formerly the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives) is an office within the White House Office that is part of the Executive Office of the President of the United States. It was established by President George W. Bush through executive order on January 29, 2001. Through this office, billions of taxpayer dollars have gone to support Christian religious organizations that meet their “standards.”

But, the real foundation for the current state of Christian Nationalism may be found in the Moral Majority, which was used to split the Republican party and allow for the infiltration of right wing Christian fundamentalists. The founders of this organization were Paul Weyrich, Richard Viguerie and Howard Phillips. They used a Baptist preacher named Jerry Falwell, who at the time of this organization’s founding was little known, as the front man for their organization.

Under Falwell, the Moral Majority began to infiltrate the military and the Supreme Court under the George W. Bush administration. George Bush is an extremist Christian – when he “misspoke” about leading a crusade against Islam, this was not a slip of the tongue. Like his cohorts, he believes in a Biblical apocalypse and his actions appear to have been intended to make their insane “prophesies” come true.

Among the original board members of the Moral Majority were D. James Kennedy and Tim LaHaye. Kennedy was an original proponent of the “Reclaiming America for Christ” movement. LaHaye is the author of a series of books about the apocalypse called “Left Behind” in which all kinds of wars and tragedies are launched on the earth while “god” causes his faithful believers to be spared the horrors by having them simply disappear into thin air. According to LaHaye’s version of the apocalypse, the Christians who are left behind are subject to an “anti-christ” who will hunt down and kill faithful Christians. The movie based on his book, “Left Behind” is a bizarre kind of Christian horror movie, which is used as a fear-based conversion tool.

Old Speech from 1960s in which Christian Nationalists Hypocritically Blame Atheists for Taking Away America’s Freedom

Christian Nationalist Revisionist History – Michelle Bachmann as an Example

Engineering the “Apocalypse”

The author William Cooper of “Behold a Pale Horse,” wrote that the danger of the Christian belief in the apocalypse is that there are maniacs in power who are determined to make this scenario happen by launching wars. Cooper wrote this long before Bush got into the presidency, but this Christian plan to instigate the apocalypse has been in place for a long time.

The Moral Majority paved the way for the Christian Coalition led by Pat Robertson. Robertson is anti-pagan, anti-witchcraft, anti-woman, anti-gay, etc. He has run for the office of the presidency and is the founder and leader of the 700 Club.

Closely associated with the Moral Majority and the Christian Coalition is the Christian Identity Movement, which was led by David Barton. It is a vicious, radical Christian group. They believe that black people are inhuman animals and that Jews are the descendents of Eve and the Serpent. Barton became chairman of the Texas Republican Party.

These people all believe that the 1st Amendment and “separation of church and state” are a fraud. They have their own version of history and science. We saw the latter in the statements of Todd Akin the Senatorial candidate from Missouri who said that in “legitimate rape” pregnancy is rare. This is only one example of their bizarre historical and scientific beliefs. Essentially, they live in a falsely created reality, which is far from rational. They want to “reclaim” a Christian America, which has never existed.

They have organized pastors of churches all over the U.S. and turned them into radical, fundamentalist Christian political machines. This went into full swing under George W. Bush’s Faith Based Initiative.

Another key organization is the Family Research Council, a Washington D.C. lobby group that acts as a liaison between the Republican party and Congress.

Their targets are gay marriage and Roe Vs. Wade. Ultimately, they wish to strip the basic human rights away from anyone they regard as a “heretic.” They believe that their right to dominate others comes from “god.” They have no respect for the laws of the U.S. or the laws of any nation and see the laws of their “god” as supreme over all.

At the international level, these Christians are tied with radical Islam, especially in Africa and at the U.N. where they ally themselves against the human rights of women and children.

Full Length Documentary – The “Love of Christ” Strikes Again!

See “Jesus Camp” – free documentary

Educate yourself about Christian Nationalism with this excellent documentary, “Jesus Camp,” which you will find here: http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/jesus-camp/

It shows the indoctrination of children to create “Christian warriors.” There is an especially interesting quote at about 34 minutes into the documentary about Harry Potter: “The devil goes after the young – those who cannot fend for themselves. That’s why we’re trying to help you – we’re trying to warn you. And, while I’m on the subject, let me say something about Harry Potter: Warlocks are enemies of god! And, I don’t care what kind of hero they are, they’re enemies of god. And, had it been in the Old Testament, Harry Potter would have been put to death!” After this statement there is a round of “Amens” from the children.

This kind of thing was a little bit humorous to me about 10 years ago, but these people are now my legislators!

Also, see the free documentary, “God’s Next Army,” which is about teenagers being indoctrinated at Patrick Henry University (very disturbing): http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/gods-next-army/

Inform Other Witches and Make This a Topic at Your Gatherings

Witches and pagans have hoped that simply educating other people would be enough to stop the prejudice against us. But, the problem is much greater, more wide-spread and at all levels of society and government. And, it isn’t just about prejudice. These people are inter-generationally indoctrinated and without any relationship to the common reality. They want to destroy anyone who isn’t just like them. They’re in your local government, they are your “representatives,” they’re in Congress and a few have even been appointed to the Supreme Court. This kind of interference in the personal lives of others is more than most of us can understand, but we must understand it, if we are to survive.

Do not simply accept or tolerate Christianity and its inherently evil “values,” which are hostile and a grave danger to women and witches.

Work to expose them to the light of day!

Witchcraft and Religious Tolerance: Do Witches Owe Respect or Tolerance to Christians?

religious-freedomSummary: This article asks whether or not we owe tolerance to members of patriarchal religion who historically and presently are committed  to subjugating or killing us.

Most traditional witches are atheists, although there may be a few who have a theological view of things. Most witches worldwide do not believe in or acknowledge the concept of a creator god or a supreme being. We do not abide by any standardized moral code.

Nonetheless, we can become affected by the culture around us, which has been tainted by Christian-thought. This is something we must guard against for our own self-preservation.

We must not allow ourselves to be deceived into working against our own best interests by those who wish us harm.

Wiccan Disclaimer: This article refers to traditional witchcraft, not Wicca or other forms of neo-paganism, but it mentions members of these groups because we are all witches. The following is only the author’s opinion based on research and personal experience.

Christian Historical Revisionism and Dominionism
Portrait of Cotton Mather (Feb. 12, 1663 – Feb. 13, 1728), American Puritan clergyman whose legacy is violence and perversion in the name of God.

The Infiltration of Christianity into American Culture

In recent decades, Christians have sought to worm their way into all aspects of our lives. This effort went into full swing in the 1950s when they inserted the phrase “under God” into the Pledge of Allegiance. The phrase “In God We Trust” was adopted under Eisenhower in 1956. In recent years, Christian preachers, in particular those called “Dominionists,” have undertaken to re-write the history of the U.S. and make it appear as if the country was founded by Christians. Although, anyone who looks at the origins of the U.S., particularly the pagan, Masonic aspects, will quickly ascertain that this is not true.

The United States was largely an experiment in escaping tyranny, in particular religious tyranny. My own ancestors were among the first in the wild and dangerous places as they moved further and further westward, preferring to rely on their own wits than to live in society.

In the early years on the frontier, there were no churches and there was little to no crime. There were no “legal” or church-sanctioned marriages. Instead, couples lived together under what is known as common law. This is a natural law in which no third party, such as a church or government stands between two people in a relationship. In those days, migrant preachers were known, but they were rare and the average person was largely non-religious. They may have kept Bibles in their homes, but they were not zealots and according to their descendants and folklorists, they often understood them as the magical grimoires they are. Many people practiced folk magic and some practiced darker forms of witchcraft and they did so without being condemned by institutionalized religion.

Witches have never been the most cooperative members of society. We have always been independent and self-reliant loners. Because of the knowledge we possess, we do not need many of the things that the average person requires to live. For example, we do not rely on allopathic health care or have need of health care insurance. Many of us have found that the society, which so many people speak of with affection, has not been conducive to our happiness or success. Women, in particular, are not regarded equally under the law, our businesses are marginalized and we are subjected to violence and harassment, largely as a result of the infection of Christianity American society has experienced in the past 70 years.

The Christian History of Persecution of Witches

Christianity is the most diabolically evil institution to arrive upon our shores. Their legacy is bondage, sexual perversion, oppression and violence. The Latin roots of the word “diabolical” mean “liar.” This term is exemplified in the duplicity of Christianity.

It is a lie for Christians to say they are followers of Jesus Christ, who – if he actually existed – was a very powerful and talented magician, much like the yogis of the East and his contemporary counterpart Simon the Mage. The Jesus Christ figure depicted in the New Testament was a benevolent peacemaker who advocated for the human rights of persecuted classes of people. By contrast, Christianity is a representation of the polar opposite of Christ-likeness.

Christians speak of the love of Christ, but “love” to them means murder in the name of religion. When they do not murder, they seek to enslave. Many of the “hate groups” in the United States today, as designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center, are Christian churches.

We do not have to look far to find examples of their atrocities and their duplicity, many such instances are readily available in their own cherished book. Here we see that their Ten Commandments admonishes, “Thou shall not kill,” while their evil god destroys cities and orders the murder of specific categories of people. It says, “Thou shalt not commit adultery,” while their god orders the rape of girls and women. It says, “Love thy neighbor as thyself,” while it silences and subjugates women.

Here are some examples from their very own book. The following are quotes from the King James Version of the Bible – you will recall that King James was a sophisticated serial killer of women and alleged witches in 17th century England, who enjoyed the torture of women so much he would, personally, go into the dungeons to interrogate those he had arrested.

In 1 Chronicles 21, “god” orders the murder of 70,000 innocents. He orders the destruction of 60 cities so his “Chosen People” can live there

In Judges 21, he demands the people of Jabesh-Gilead, except for the young girls who were to be raped and married. When god’s people want to rape, they simply kidnap and marry their victims.
Violence Against Women at the Hands of the Church in Europe

In Numbers 31:7-18,” he orders the rape of unmarried women and girls and the murder of everyone else: “And they warred against the Midianites, as the Lord commanded Moses; and they slew all the males. And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword. And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods. And they burnt all their cities wherein they dwelt, and all their goodly castles, with fire. And they took all the spoil, and all the prey, both of men and of beasts. And they brought the captives, and the prey, and the spoil, unto Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and unto the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the camp at the plains of Moab, which are by Jordan near Jericho. And Moses, and Eleazar the priest, and all the princes of the congregation, went forth to meet them without the camp. And Moses was wroth with the officers of the host, with the captains over thousands, and captains over hundreds, which came from the battle. And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the Lord in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the Lord. Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.

Is it any wonder that since the Christian influence has become stronger we have seen a massive increase in violent crime and in particular rape and other violence against women and children, which largely goes on with impunity since the same influence is now in every institution?

When anyone speaks the truth about the churches, they are quick to cry that they are being persecuted. They demand respect and tolerance from others, while offering nothing but death, perversion, violence and sugary lies in return.

They talk about feeling the “love of Christ.” They swear that every word of the Bible, a book which has been substantially altered innumerable times, is the word of God – “the Gospel truth.” But, look at the difference between what they say and what their book says; which, also, is the difference between what they say and what they do.

What Does the Bible Say About Witches?

It is no exaggeration to say that Christianity loathes women. It is at the hands of the churches over the centuries that thousands, perhaps millions (they dig up graves of women apparently murdered as witches in Europe from time to time) have been sexually brutalized and murdered in the name of god.

These atrocities continue today, but in a different form and with different names, such as “domestic abuse” and “violence against women.” The intent seems to be as in centuries past, to shut women up and deny them equal participation in society. Presently, in this Christian-dominated nation, women are not provided with equal protection under the law, are given harsh penalties for defending their own lives and marginalized by the extreme level of sexual violence in the U.S., which is practically a sacrament.

Christians preachers usually speak with gentle voices, especially when they are addressing those outside their congregations. But, when they speak to their loyal congregations, the truth comes out. They are full of hatred for women, minorities and anyone who doesn’t fall into lockstep with them.

If you do not agree with them, they want you dead. It’s in their own books and no matter what sweet-sounding lies they tell, this fact cannot be denied. Hateful acts begin with hateful words and few are as hateful as those found within the Judeo-Christian Bible.

Exodus 22:18 “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.”

Leviticus 20:27 “A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.”

1 Timothy 2: 11-12 “Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”

The message is clear, if you are a witch or a psychic, they want you dead. If you are a woman, at the very least, they want you to shut up and be subjugated to their perversity and violence.

In return, they demand your respect and tolerance, of course. If you point out this obvious injustice, they will accuse you of “bashing” them or of being “angry” or “hateful.”

Please, remember this: You have no obligation to people who wish to do you or your family harm.

The Modern Witch Hunters

Cotton Mather

Portrait of Cotton Mather (Feb. 12, 1663 – Feb. 13, 1728), American Puritan clergyman whose legacy is violence and perversion in the name of God.

Since they are no longer legally permitted to openly kill us through formal processes as they have done in the past, they work behind the scenes to marginalize us financially, socially and in other ways. They work against independent women by permitting violence against us to go largely unpunished. They marginalize and destroy our businesses in local political campaigns. In many parts of the U.S., if a church is within so many feet of your business that they feel conflicts with something in their doctrines, you will be denied a license. Night clubs, restaurants, strip clubs, grocery stores and bookstores around the country are subjected to raids, sometimes violent ones.

They have taken hold, not only of government, but of the very powerful medium of television. They had their hay day during the “Satanic Panic” of the 1980s when they falsified stories of Satanic rituals and witchcraft. They went on for many years until a series of scandals involving illicit affairs, fraud, rape and blackmail. One of the most notorious of these was Jim Bakker of the PTL who was sentenced to 45 years in federal and a $500,000 fine. The lengthy sentence was later substantially reduced. But, this didn’t stop Bakker, who literally claimed that “the devil” caused his downfall, from continuing his evangelical ministry with his own theater and television show with many Christian devotees.

Christians openly admit that they are sinners and believe that their “god loves sinners.” In Christianity, a sinner is a “person who transgresses against divine law by committing an immoral act or acts.” Meanwhile they condemn witches and women as witches.

The old witch hunters have survived into this century with us.

Here is the evidence:

The following is a quote from Pat Robertson who opposed the 1972 ERA Act, which would have given equal rights under the law to women. Imagine the ways in which the passage of this law might have improved your life. But, it did not pass, largely due to Christian opposition.

“Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”
Christian Advocates Shunning Witches “Daughters of the Devil”

In the video to the right Pat Robertson advocates shunning family members who are psychics or practice witchcraft.

Robertson might just seem like an idiot or a clown on the surface, but he ran for President of the United States in 1986 and he has a large following from his television broadcast.

Robertson’s television station is called CBN or Christian Broadcasting Network. Kimberly Daniels is a CBN Contributor who wrote an article full of hatred and inflammatory lies about witches and witchcraft in 2009, entitled “The Dangers of Celebrating Halloween:”

“The danger of Halloween is not in the scary things we see but in the secret, wicked, cruel activities that go on behind the scenes. These activities include: Sex with demons; Orgies between animals and humans; Animal and human sacrifices; Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood; Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies; Revel nights; Conjuring of demons and casting of spells; Release of ‘time-released’ curses against the innocent and the ignorant” (http://www.charismamag.com/blogs/prophetic-insight/7134-the-danger-of-celebrating-halloween)

According to modern witch finder and Christian, Jay Rogers, child sacrifice from Salem Massachusetts has survived into this century under the guise of Wicca. In his article, “Salem’s Witch Cult and America’s Abortion Industry,” Jay Rogers attacks Laurie Cabot, specifically and makes a lot of suggestions about human sacrifice without saying it directly. In this same article, he attacks witchcraft and Wicca specifically:

The promotion of abortion is not just a political issue for members of Wicca; it is part of a religious agenda – the religion of witchcraft and child sacrifice….we were not able to ascertain whether or not Witches use the blood of aborted children in their sacrifices….it stands to reason that such a sacrifice, protected by law, could be used by witches.” http://www.forerunner.com/champion/X0039_Child_Sacrifice_in_t.html)

Wiccans are not usually promoting any kind of political agenda. They just want to be left alone. They don’t want to be harassed and threatened. Witchcraft, in general, is the practice of diverse people who are not especially open, do not organize and do not have a unified political or any other agenda.

By contrast, Christians are very political and many of them believe they have the right to place god ahead of the law.

Right now we are faced with the threat of a Mormon president. Please see, “Joseph Smith and the Mormons: Witchcraft and Occultism in Mormonism.” Mormonism is a particularly diabolical religious cult that subjugates women and children and advocates the practice of polygamy, a form of sexual slavery for women and girls, as a fundamental part of their doctrines. Despite denials from the LDS church, polygamy is still practiced in the Temple.
Christian Says Witches Should Be Dominated

Christians sometimes speak very sweetly to outsiders, at least, at first. It is when they have an audience of their own kind that the truth comes out and you see that they do believe the words in their book.

In the video to the right from RevelationTV a “kind” Christians suggests that we should not be murdered, but rather witches should be “dominated”

Numerous Christian television programs regularly feature bogus stories of alleged witches being converted to their religion.

They have an organized effort on television, within local government and higher aspects of government to undermine witches and any other group they deem an “enemy of god.” One of their arguments is that it isn’t the individual Christian who is acting against you, but their god from whom they are taking orders. They hold their god’s law over all other and will disregard the law, if necessary, to harm you.

By contrast, witches are independent. We do not have a lobby group and outside of a few small Wiccan advocacy groups, there is no one to speak for us. If we speak out publicly, we must do so carefully, because there is likely to be reprisals.

Sometimes Christians will act friendly toward you in an effort to convert you or to obtain your confidence. As you hear their sweet words, you will do well to remember the horrible words in their books, which call for your condemnation, subjugation and murder. Do not underestimate their capacity for deception and cruelty.

The following are recent examples of the persecution of witches in the United States:

‘Wynne … said her home has been vandalized and townspeople have tried to forcibly “exorcise” demons out of her, poisoned her cats and threatened to burn her house. “They flipped over my refrigerator. They squirted ketchup and mustard everywhere. They’ve written ‘Die, witch.'” (“South Carolina: Witch Persecuted by Christians” By Austin Cline, About.com GuideAugust 11,2004 http://atheism.about.com/b/2004/08/11/south-carolina-witch-persecuted-by-christians.htm)

Burnet, Texas has been the scene of two cases of witchcraft persecutions in 2003 and, again, in 2009.

In the first instance in 2003, Wiccans who ran a store in Burnet were threatened and eventually forced to leave town by the local Christians. The original KXAN report cannot be found, but an article, “The Persecution of Wiccans” by Austin Cline, remains at About.com:

“The group says they relocated to Burnet in April after pressure to leave from community groups in Kingsland. They say they’re receiving threats in one case to burn down their business.”(http://atheism.about.com/b/2003/08/03/persecution-of-wiccans.htm)

The original Austin-Statesman article about the 2009 event cannot be found, but a brief article by the same author as referenced above is found at About.com: Austin-American Statesman:

“Over the past 10 months, Allen said, threatening phone calls have poured in and strange cars have followed her home from her store at night. The police dismissed her requests for protection, she said. Allen also claims that in March, one Llano County sheriff’s deputy told her daughter that “we had a family practicing witchcraft awhile back, but we ran them out of town.” (http://atheism.about.com/b/2003/08/06/more-on-the-persecution-of-wiccans-in-texas.htm)

In South Carolina, a Wiccan couple endured extreme harassment from their neighbors and a government agency, DHHR, took their children. They had to sue the government to try to get them back after being accused of engaging in the human sacrifice of their own children.

“A family of Wiccans falsely accused of sacrificing their children during religious ceremonies sued the state’s Department of Health and Human Resources for allegedly harassing them and taking possession of their children.”

“The couple contends they have been continually harassed since moving to West Virginia in 1999.”

“On one occasion, DHHR officials and a State Police trooper were called to investigate an allegation that the couple had killed their youngest child in a sacrifice and were carrying the boy’s body with them. A later DHHR visit came from another false report that the couple’s children had been sacrificed.” (“Wiccan family files suit against DHHR” by Charles Shumaker “The Charleston Gazette,” July 28, 2004 http://wwrn.org/articles/9560/?&place=north-america&section=occult)

Another case from 2008 highlights the dangers of living openly as a witch when you have children and how government agencies that purport to protect children can be manipulated by persecutors. A family was completely torn apart and forced to flee as fugitives because of false reports to the Department of Social Services (DSS) by their Christian neighbors. ( “Pagan Persecution a National Travesty” by Lady Passion, High Priestess, Coven Oldenwilde, Asheville, NC Published February, 2008, in Oracle 20/20 Magazine. http://oldenwilde.org/oldenwilde/members/lady-passion-articles/pagan-persecution-a-national-travesty_part-1.html)

The following is a typical example of how witches may be undermined or sabotaged at work. TSA worker, Carole Smith was fired from her job under the pretense of poor job performance, but it seems likely there were other reasons. As a person of integrity, she was concerned about lax security at the airport and became a whistleblower. She was, also subjected to witchcraft accusations by co-workers:

“A co-worker even complained that Smith cast a disabling spell on the heater of her car one snowy evening,” (“Wiccan Lawsuit: Carole Smith claims TSA fired her for being a ‘witch'” by Larry McShane, Daily New Staff Writer, March 31, 2011 http://articles.nydailynews.com/2011-03-31/news/29386452_1_tsa-wiccan-witch-hunt)

Some witches do not feel safe or comfortable telling their own family members about their witchcraft practice. The following article is from the New York Times:

“A stay-at-home mother of two in Northern Virginia who was raised Southern Baptist keeps her Wiccan faith secret. Not even her mother knows.” (“Wiccans Keep the Faith With a Religion Under Wraps” by Stephanie Kuykendal, The New York Times, May 16, 2007. http://www.nytimes.com/2007/05/16/us/16wiccan.html)

Local officials have ways of making life unpleasant for businesses they don’t like. Back in 1991, I visited a metaphysical store in Independence, Missouri that had advertised a psychic fair. I had a nice reading, bought a few pretty items and really enjoyed myself. The next weekend, the store conducted its psychic fair as usual and was raided by Independence police. The psychics were arrested and a very hateful, insulting article was printed in the local newspaper about them and the store. I found this raid to be very intimidating and never returned to the store, again. You can see a scan of this article at the address below:

“Police Raid Surprises Psychics” Lodi News-Sentinel, Associated Press, January 28, 1991 Independence, MO, http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=2209&dat=19910208&id=U4NKAAAAIBAJ&sjid=6JMMAAAAIBAJ&pg=6938,1542909

Here is an article about a similar raid in Pennsylvania printed in The Telegraph, February 8, 1991, by Kelly P. Kissel of Associated Press entitled, “Charged Fortune Tellers Had Trouble Predicting Their Own Future:” http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=2209&dat=19910208&id=U4NKAAAAIBAJ&sjid=6JMMAAAAIBAJ&pg=6938,1542909

It is interesting to me that the above article is very similar to the one printed in the local paper about the Independence store. This is an example of how Christians harass and undermine witches by legalistic means. I believe all charges were dropped, but this doesn’t change the fact that the stores and their clientele were intimidated and harassed. The damage was done and the witches were never compensated. When I was working as a professional psychic, this raid and similar ones were always at the back of my mind.

These are only a few explicit examples. Most instances of witchcraft persecution don’t make the news because Christians are subtle and devious. They will usually spread gossip, try to undermine you or sabotage your work, rather than going for a direct assault. But, this depends on the balance of power where you live. In places where you are very outnumbered by Evangelicals or Mormons, you can be in real physical danger.

What is respect?

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “respect” as “a feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.”

What is tolerance?

The above referenced book defines “tolerance” as “the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with: “religious tolerance.”

Clearly, Christianity is not deserving of the respect of any decent, thinking person. And, tolerance becomes a problem when Christians destroy our livelihood, subject us to violence with impunity, attempt to silence us and force us to live in the shadows. Unless you agree that you should be murdered because you practice witchcraft, there is clearly no room for tolerance of Christianity.

You are never obligated to show respect to or cooperate with people who have stated that it is their mission to destroy you. Do not be deceived by the honey-laden words that drip from their mouths about the “love of Christ.” Look at their own book! And, look at their actions!

Furthermore, we should become aware of what actions Christian groups are taking against us so we can defend ourselves and our families as best we can.

What You Cawitches-legends-of-basque-sacred-textsn Do

If you have noticed an increase in the number of churches and their influence in your city lately, as I have, you may have wondered why. When George W. Bush was in office, he passed a wholly un-Constitutional and evil law called the “Faith-based Initiative,” which gives your taxpayer money to Christian churches who meet government standards and agree to preach according to their guidelines.

“We want to fund programs that save Americans one soul at a time.” President George W. Bush, January, 2004, in a speech in New Orleans (http://www.theocracywatch.org/faith_base.htm)

There is a big effort underway by various powerful Christian groups to undermine the laws of the U.S. and take Americans, especially women and minorities, back in time before the Civil Rights Act was passed. Many witches are not political. We mind our own business and expect others to do the same, but it may benefit us to pay attention to what has been going on in the past 10 to 15 years with regard to the erosion of our basic human rights

If you participate in politics, try to vote out those who who do not have your best interests at heart – those who want you marginalized, suffering and dead. Keep abreast of the efforts of groups like ALEC, the Dominionists and the Mormons to establish a theocracy, which they have already succeeded in doing in some municipalities and states.

Do not entertain these people in your home. When missionaries knock on your door, simply do not answer. Do not think you can reason with such people; those like the Mormons harbor disdain for non-members. They despise and subjugate women and girls. You do not owe them as much as the time of day. If you suffer from such visitations often, put up “No Soliciting” and “No Trespassing” signs and let them know you expect them to abide by the law.

John_Downman_Witches_from_Macbeth


Witches use their knowledge and skills to effect a desired outcome in the real world.

Do not give Christians the opportunity to harass you. This is a problem in certain parts of the country, especially those dominated by Evangelicals, Born Agains and other types of radicals. all.

When you are approached by them at work or elsewhere, let them know that you are not interested in attending their church and if they persist in harassing you about it, you will report them.

Be on guard with Christians, especially, in the work place because they will usually start out talking nicely to you, but turn angry and vengeful quickly if they are unable to dominate you. Don’t fall into their trap. It can cause a lot of problems for you at work. If anyone asks you about religion at work, just tell them it’s a topic you never discuss. If they persist in trying to convert you or nag you about coming to their church, take it up with whoever is in charge. Never reveal your hand – don’t discuss your own beliefs or lack thereof.

Do not frequent their businesses, especially those that are openly Christian and aggressive toward others.The problem of frequenting businesses that use our money to support questionable causes or who work to lobby government against our own interests has been drawn to the public’s attention most recently by the controversy surrounding Chick-fil-a. They speak with a soft voice while they commit evil acts – in this instance giving part of their profits to a hate group lobbying to restrict the civil rights of an entire group of people.

Recognize Christian duplicity; don’t give them the benefit of the doubt and feel free to judge them – they’re certainly judging you.

Stay in the closet. Unless you live in a part of the country where witchcraft is tolerated, do not come out in the open so they can do something to harm you. In the U.S., witches are being denied leases, postal and other services. Some have even had their houses burned down by Christians.

If you hold meetings at your home, do so discreetly. Right now, there’s a family in the southern midiwest who is being harassed by their neighbors because they have held a Wiccan ceremony in their back yard. If you are in an area where there are lots of hostile Christians, choose a place away from your home to conduct outdoor rituals. If you conduct meetings at your home, instruct people to wear their mundane clothes, at least, as they’re coming and going. Technically, you have basic civil rights under the law, however, this doesn’t mean much in real life when you’re not receiving basic services (like postal service) and the neighbors are vandalizing your house.

When they commit crimes against you and you have no legal recourse, use your knowledge of the Dark Arts to bring justice and balance to the situation. Witchcraft, including the Dark Arts should be used as a force against evil and as a means to bring equality to a situation where your enemies have tipped the scales against you.

The Dark Arts are a witch’s natural protection. Just like an animal in the wild has claws and teeth with which to defend itself, we have witchcraft. It’s your natural right to use it in your own self-defense and the defense of innocent people. Do not let the fear mongers dissuade you from that which is your natural right.

Do not worry about harm coming to you as a result. This notion is a Christian invention intended to disarm their victims. It has crept into modern forms of witchcraft, many of which are little different from Christianity except they replaced the godhead. If you accept these ideas, you do so at your own detriment. “Do as thou wilt” is the natural occult scientific law. This is not meant to be a moral code, but a statement of fact.

You are certainly under no obligation to aide and abet those who secretly and sometimes openly speak and act in ways that harm you. Protect yourself and those you love.

Anti-witchcraft Groups to Monitor

Some of these groups mentioned below seem very bizarre and we may be inclined to laugh at what they are doing, but they are a serious threat because many prominent politicians and media figures are directly involved with them and they have ties with powerful political lobbies. They have vowed to destroy witchcraft and root out paganism. They advocate the subjugation of women and have attempted to turn back the progress of the feminist movement and the Civil Rights Act. They are, also, openly hostile to the LGBT community. Taking into account the violence directed at us in their books and their extremely violent history, this is a credible threat – yes, even in the 21st century.

They are dangerous, not only because they are well-organized, but they have been working quietly behind the scenes for years. The Evangelical expansion into government began in the 1950s. The Dominionsts have been working in the shadows for almost 15 years with only a handful atheists attempting to gently warn us about them.

Glenn Beck, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Michelle Bachman, Sarah Palin are examples of radical, Christians who have wormed their way into prominence in politics or in the political media. Since the Reagan era, the Republican Party has been infiltrated by Evangelicals and their radical anti-woman and anti-freedom ideas.

The following is by no means a comprehensive list or organizations and it will be added to as more information comes to my attention:

Alliance Defending Freedom of Scottsdale, Arizona: http://www.alliancedefendingfreedom.org/ – This deceptively named organization is about freedom for Christians only! According to the MSNBC article, “Pastors endorse candidates and Thumb Their Noses at the IRS,” November 5, 2012 (http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/11/04/14703656-pulpit-politics-pastors-endorse-candidates-thumbing-noses-at-the-irs?lite),” this organization is responsible for organizing 1,600 pastors across the United States to endorse candidates for the U.S. Presidency for an event they called “Pulpit Freedom Sunday,” in violation of the law and at the risk of losing their Tax-free Status with the IRS.

American Family Association: http://www.afa.net – A hate group documented by the Southern Poverty Law Center that seeks to exert its influence primarily through media.

American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC): http://www.alec.org – This organization looks conservative, but benign on the surface, however, they have been responsible for a lot of extremist right-wing legislation throughout the U.S. including the disturbing state rape bills in states like Virginia and Texas in just the past year. They have worked against the little legislation in existence to protect victims of domestic violence. They have tried to make it difficult for women to get medication and healthcare, even when they pay for it themselves, and they are behind the recent political conflict in Wisconsin involving pensions. Learn the truth about ALEC at: http://www.AlecExposed.org

The Champions: http://www.forefunner.com – This is a hate web site by Jay Roberts, a pro-life Christian. He is the author of the article, “Child Sacrifice in the New Age” referenced above, which accused witches and, in particular, Wiccans of sacrificing children.

Christian Broadcasting Network: http://www.cbn.com – Features programming promoting hate of witchcraft and disseminates lies an disinformation about the practice of witchcraft and Wicca.

Focus on the Family: http://www.focusonthefamily.org – This is a reincarnation of the original Focus on the Family founded by Pat Robertson. They broadcast, produce a magazine and provide counseling services. The original Focus on the Family organization was (and possibly this organization still is) the source of the evil alliance of Catholics, Mormons, Baptists, Presbyterians and other politicians within the Republican Party. By the mid-1980s, they had so much power that no one could get elected to any significant position in the U.S. without their approval. This is why they’re always on about their “faith” whenever they’re running for office. This is, also, why most of them are men, most are white, most have trophy families that fit the Christian model, most are anti-woman, anti-gay, etc. They are are shills of the Evangelicals.

Generals International: Generals.org – Cindy Jacobs’ organization; Jacobs is one of the leaders of the DC40, which organized against witchcraft and paganism in Washington D.C. Oct 3 – Nov 22. They appear to be Christian black magicians who gather on pagan High Holy days to pray against perceived pagan deities. They appear to believe that the Statue of Liberty is a representation of a demonic pagan goddess.

Heartland Apolistic Prayer Network (HAPN): http://www.hapn.us

Interfaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington: http://www.ifcmw.org

Interfaith Alliance: http://www.interfaithalliance.org/index.php

International House of Prayer Kansas City: http://www.IHOPKC.org – Bible and ministry school called the International House of Prayer University (IHOPU) in nearby Grandview, Missouri. Founded by Mick Bickle in 1999, it is a fast growing center of nefarious activity in the midwest. One of their slogans is “Keep the fire burning,” which certainly has a double-meaning.
The Mormon Desire for Theocracy

Mormons: http://www.mormons.org – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and other organization that use The Book of Mormon as doctrine. They have established a de facto theocracy in Utah and parts of the southwest. FLDS organizations are among hate group, designated as such by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Sexual abuse of women and children and racism.

Reclaiming the Seven Mountains of Culture: http://www.reclaim7mountains.com

SidRoth.org: Sid Roth hosts a bizarre television program called “It’s Supernatural,” on CBN, which curiously promotes witchcraft practices within Christianity, while condemning the practice by anyone else.

Wall Builders: WallBuilders.org – This organization is currently seeking to overturn the civil rights of Wiccans and Neo-pagans at the Federal level.
Useful Terms

Christian Reconstructionism: “Reconstructionism would eliminate not only democracy but many of its manifestations, such as labor unions, civil rights laws, and public schools. Women would be generally relegated to hearth and home. Insufficiently Christian men would be denied citizenship, perhaps executed. So severe is this theocracy that it would extend capital punishment beyond such crimes as kidnapping, rape, and murder to include, among other things, blasphemy, heresy, adultery, and homosexuality. (Politcal Research Associates, “Christian Reconstructionism,” March/June 1994 “Theocratic Dominionism Gains Influence” by Frederick Clarksonhttp://www.publiceye.org/magazine/v08n1/chrisre1.html

Christian Supremacy: This is an umbrella term for the dangerous movement of a number of Christian groups. It is described at: http://the-goddess.org/blog/2004/10/reprinta-crash-course-in-christian.html

The following is a quote from the article on Christian Supremacy referenced above at the-goddess.org (I urge you to read the entire article and research the names and resources given there, It was written in 2004. It is an eerie foreshadowing of the present situation):

I’m sure the names Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, D. James Kennedy, the late Francis Schaeffer and Billy Graham are familiar. The movement began with them. For a complete background, please read Katherine Yurica’s beautifully researched article The Despoiling of America.[http://www.yuricareport.com/Dominionism/TheDespoilingOfAmerica.htm] There are numerous sources on the internet, so I’m just going to distill the main points here.

They want to establish an American Theocracy. Their goal is to remove the checks and balances in the Constitution, and consider George W. Bush to be their leader, installed in his office by none other than “God” himself.

” “Why is this man in the White House? The majority of Americans did not vote for him. He’s in the White House because God put him there for a time such as this.” – Lt Gen William “Jerry” Boykin

“Gen. Boykin has repeatedly told Christian groups and prayer meetings that President George W Bush was chosen by God to lead the global fight against Satan.”

They favor the death penalty in many cases, including things like heresy, adultery, abortion and homosexuality. (BE VERY AFRAID of the fact that Ashcroft is after women’s medical records!)

They have been systematically working to gain control of all three branches of government, and have made great inroads thanks to Bush’s appointment of these Christian extremists to the judiciary, where they can attack Roe V. Wade and separation of church and state issues, and to key cabinet positions, where they are systematically supressing scientific findings that contradict their ideological goals. They’ve inplemented a global “gag rule” and are actively campaigning against any organization that promotes condom use or abortion. John Ashcroft’s Dept. of Justice won’t prosecute hate crimes against minority religions, and they are using the Patriot Act for drug crimes. They refuse to prosecute Christian extremists in this country – even when they blow up clinics – as terrorists. They’ve been running the Pentagon through the Office of Special Plans.

Dominionism: Dominionism is a term used to describe the political philosophy of politically active conservative Christians who are believed to seek influence or control over secular civil government through political action, especially in the United States, with the goal of establishing either a nation governed by Christians or one governed by a conservative Christian understanding of biblical law. (Wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominionism)

New Apostolic Reformation: The New Apostolic Reformation is a movement in Protestant Christianity largely associated with Pentecostalism and the Charismatic Movement. The basic thesis asserts that God is restoring the lost offices of church governance, namely the offices of Prophet and Apostle. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Apostolic_Reformation)

7 Mountains: These are the areas this particular group has sought and largely succeeded in infiltrating and dominating: Arts & Entertainment; Business; Education; Family; Government; Media and Religion
