Witches vs. Baby Jesus (12/15/07, Washington Times)

That's when the scandal began. Not that a Baby Jesus on the lawn of the municipal building is against the law or a violation of the Constitution -- it is neither -- but New York is one of those states where political correctness is an art form. Most people believe in Jesus, but the ones who don't are adept at raising a stink. And a stink was raised in Olean.

The regular folks seemed pretty happy with things, finding the Nativity display a nice holiday addition. Unfortunately, in America in 2007, the regular folks don't matter. Majority rule is a thing of the past and special interests are the masters of the society. That is how the pentacle came to be there. Do you know what that is? It's a five-pointed star inside a circle and it's supposedly the symbol of the Wicca witchcraft people.

See, Baby Jesus ticks off witchcraft people. They're all about tolerance for themselves, but are pretty darned intolerant of others. That's how this whole diversity thing goes. Acceptance is demanded for everything -- except the values, opinions, faith and culture of the majority. Multiculturalism is about the sanitizing of culture, about the eradication of the mainstream culture.

So, like I said, the witchcraft people got ticked off. Though there might just have been one of them. At any rate, figuring that actually walking up and urinating on the Baby Jesus would stir up the locals, it looks like folks decided to go for the next best thing. That's how the 10-foot by 10-foot Wicca symbol got built in the shadow of the stable. It was a big square, with a dark blue background and a white circle. Inside the white circle was a white five-pointed star against a light-blue background. That's a pentacle.

Also known as kindling.

They have their own holiday and Christians don't try to horn (pun intended) in on it, so why don't they back off and stop annoying everyone.

Mrs. Erp, I deal with several "Pagans". There is no agreed system of belief, the only thing that holds them together as a group is their unreasoned hate for the Church. When I talk to them, it's never about what they believe, it's always how the Church has failed....
So, you should be flattered. It seems the "Pagans" have a mad crush on the Church.

Robert, I'm not a church goer myself. The comment was in the interests of fairness only.

Do you speak of real pagans or those sad souls who wander around health food stores?

I don't know, Mrs. Erp. I talk to people who say they are Pagan. I'm curious about what it means to be Pagan, so I ask. I have yet to get anything more then "Nature good" and a list of "crimes" the Catholic Church has committed. When I ask about morals, the reply is rather Catholic....
So, what is a real Pagan? Don't know yet.
