Late Night: Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid!

There’s a lot that’s going on out in the world and while some of it has nothing to do with Halloween it does provide some good fodder for costumes. Other costumes are in bad taste, “too soon” or not. What are you doing/wearing for Halloween?

Now for the very scary: According to a certain Christian sect very popular among elected conservatives, Ted Cruz is the Anointed King who will redistribute wealth. And why if liberals want to do it, distribution of wealth is Evil; but if Ted Cruz does it, it’s totally cool? The answer lies in a sermon delivered by Dominionist preacher Larry Huch at his megachurch August 26, 2012, where Ted Cruz’ father Rafael Cruz also delivered a sermon. Huch preached:

The number 12 means ‘divine government’, that God begins to rule and reign. Not Wall Street, not Washington – God’s people and his kingdom will begin to rule and reign…I know that’s why God got Rafael’s son elected – Ted Cruz, the next Senator. But here’s the exciting thing – and that’s why I know it’s timely for him to teach this, and bring this anointing. The rabbinical teaching is, especially amongst gentiles, who God opens their eyes, that in a few weeks begins that year 2012, and that this will begin what we call the “End Time Transfer of Wealth.

And that when these gentiles begin to receive this blessing, they will never go back financially through the valley again. They will grown and grow and grow. It’s said this way – that God is looking at the church, and everyone in it, and deciding, in the next 3 and 1/2 years, who will be his bankers. And the ones that say, “Here am I, Lord, you can trust me,” we will become so blessed that we will usher in the coming of the Messiah. This message if for you. Would you welcome our good friend Rafael Cruz ? What a tremendous man of God.

The elder Cruz then took the pulpit and said:

The pastor [Huch] referred to Proverbs 13:22, a little while ago, which says that the wealth of the wicked is stored for the righteous. And it is through the kings, anointed to take dominion, that that transfer of wealth is going to occur. God, even though he’s sovereign, even though he’s omnipotent, he doesn’t let it rain out of the sky – he’s going to use people to do it.

The theological implications of this are huge, as are the political and social.  And scarier than any goblin at your doorstep.

N.W.A., KISS, Nirvana Among Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

WARNING LYRICS NSFW!

N.W.A., the revolutionary rap group which famously sang “Fuck tha Police,”  has been nominated for a second time to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. N.W.A.’s album Straight Outta Compton had the distinction of being one of the early adopters of  the Parental Advisory label

WARNING: Moderate impact coarse language and/or themes.

N.W.A., their record label, Ruthless, and distributor Priority also received a letter from the FBI, raising Congressional and free speech advocates’ eyebrows. N.W.A’s  lyrics, which laid out life in Compton, including sex, drugs and violence, enraged ninny-brained sandy-pantied busybodies Focus on the Family. In 1989, the uber-uptight  conservative group pressured  FBI assistant director of the FBI office of public affairs, Milt Ahlerich, into sending a letter advising the rappers that

advocating violence and assault is wrong and we in the law enforcement community take exception to such action…I wanted you to be aware of the FBI’s position relative to this song and its message. I believe my views reflect the opinion of the entire law enforcement community.

When informed of the letter from Ahlerich, Rep. Don Edwards (D-CA, San Jose), chair of the House Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on civil and constitutional rights, charged with monitoring FBI actions regarding U.S. citizens, responded:

The FBI should stay out of the business of censorship…We’re going to try to find out more about this letter.

According to Rolling Stone “Fuck tha Police”

became subject of an intense fax campaign among local police departments, with the lyrics transmitted to cops in cities where NWA toured. The number was deliberately excluded from the tour’s regular set list.

In some cities, police refused to provide security at venues hosting the group, affecting N.W.A.’s ability to tour. But the controversy only helped N.W.A. which went on score platinum success with Straight Outta Compton. Their influence, lyrically and musically, has influenced music over the past three decades.

KISS, one of the world’s best selling rock bands, and also up for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, saw controversy in the late 1970s and 80s. Some parents freaked out that the band’s name was an acronym for “Knights in Satan’s Service,” KISS, who performed in full face makeup and leather and sang phallocentric songs about  “love gun” and the notorious “Plaster Caster” groupies, probably did freak out a few folks when they added a vial of band members’ blood to the ink used to print the first edition of their comic book. But seriously, how scary is a band who recorded “Beth“ and whose faces are on lunch boxes?   On Hello Kitty lunchboxes, to boot!  In Germany, where the lightning bolt double S is banned because it evokes Nazism, KISS uses a double Z. Like N.W.A., KISS has been nominated before.

A band is eligible for induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 25 years after the commercial release of their first single. Credited with popularizing grunge music and the slacker lifestyle (now known as “hipster” and practiced by many who were not even in elementary school let alone born during the band’s formative years), Nirvana released “Love Buzz” on Seattle’s SubPop Records in 1988. Nirvana’s success on Geffen Records, coupled Cobain’s turbulent life with wife Courtney Love and subsequent suicide have made him a rock and roll an-hero.

Other nominees include The Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Chic, Deep Purple, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, LL Cool J, The Meters, The Replacements, Linda Ronstadt, Cat Stevens, Link Wray, Yes, and The Zombies.

A group of more than 600 music industry members, including all living Hall of Fame members, other musicians, executives, journalists and critics vote. Fan votes are also included; the top five bands on the public’s vote will constitute a “fan’s ballot” that will be included in the final vote count. You can vote through December 10 here: rockhall.com/vote.  The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony will be in April 2014 and broadcast at a later date on HBO.

Killing for Christ on Safari for Jesus

 

What a great opportunity to kill things and preach the Gospel! Frikkie du Toit offers the Provider for Christ seven-day safari adventures in South Africa at $2395 per person:

to support the creation of new and more energized Providers for Christ, and the families of men and women based on Biblical principals.

Because shooting impala, blesbok, blue wildebeest– all upgradable and additional animals available–with big guns after worship and Christian seminars by local ministers will make you feel real good. Want to feel even better? Bring your own minister, church, organization, or business group for a private worship seminar. And then, after you’ve shot the game and it’s been skinned, salted and prepared for shipping back to your local taxidermist?

Minister to the poor at an orphanage and squatters camp with a Christian organization. This will involve bringing your meat to the camps and using your other talents to help the children. Feel free to bring needed items such as candy, clothing, sports equipment, and medical supplies. These are always in short supply and greatly appreciated.

You will be invited to worship with the people in the camps. They are learning to love Jesus Christ and will be energized by your support. If you have special talents and want to use them, let us know and we will try our best to facilitate you in using them for God.

Frikkie du Toit also offers non-Jesus-based hunting, including rhino darting, which allows you to

down a rhino without harming them.

It’s stuff like this that gives Christians a bad name. If the people need food, clothing, and supplies and you can provide it for them, that’s a wonderful and kind thing. But to stuff it down their throat with a dose of cultural and religious imperialism–revolting. And using a religion as a justification for an expensive sport shooting vacation is just creepy.

The rise of child, elder, and LGBT abuse/deaths in Uganda and other African nations has been directly linked to American evangelicals preaching a violent, hate-filled form of Christianity (which sorta goes against the idea of Jesus being the Prince of Prince and loving thy neighbor).  Add to that the loss of indigenous culture and tradition and wildlife–that’s not “progress,” it’s cultural extinction. Minister to the poor, help the needy, but don’t freaking shoot things and then evangelize and seek to covert by being Bwana.

Teen Exorcists Get Medieval on Demons for Reality Show

Claiming himself  to be a champion demon purger, Pastor Bob Larson has conjured up the the Dominionist version of a boy-band/cash-printing machine: A trio of (sorta) teen girls (one is 21) who cast out allegedly evil spirits and are featured in a new BBC3 documentary called (hold your breath here!): Teen Exorcists. They’re also the subjects of a Vice TV documentary in which they claim demons cause sexually transmitted diseases.  And here all along I thought it was bacteria and viruses, silly me.

The virgin trio–one is Pastor Bob’s daughter Brynne Larson, the other two are sisters, Tess and Savannah Scherkenback–are now taken to the British Isles which they say is a hotbed of occult activity whose origins go back to pagan times. Spunky 21 year-old Savannah explains:

It has been centuries in the making, but I believe it came to a pinnacle with the Harry Potter books.

Oh and, you guys, Harry Potter spell are totally srs bzns. Her 18 year-old sister wants you to know:

The spells you are reading about are not made up. They are real and come from witchcraft.

Not only can these girls kick ass on demons, they can kick ass in real life! All three of the home-schooled exorcettes have black belts in karate. Brynne first joined her semi-famous fundie father to cast out demons when she 13, but she’ll be leaving the Get Thee Behind Me business behind her when she starts at conservative Christian Liberty University this fall. But stage dad Bob wants to come back to the UK and continue tossing off devils–private exorcisms cost about $450, but he offers free seminars as he travels from city to city with his metaphysical medicine show.

Online, Larson, the self-proclaimed

world’s foremost expert on cults, the occult, and supernatural phenomena

who has his own reality show, The Real Exorcist, on SKY-TV in Europe, offers DVDs of exorcisms and a nifty silver metal

cross … anointed and prayed over personally by Bob.

And gosh darn, they work, according to testimonials on the sales page:

When Pastor Bob touched my forehead with his cross, the demons that had been tormenting me instantly manifested.

Not sure if you need a silver Cross of Deliverance or an exorcism? You can take Pastor Bob’s Demon Test and:

Let Bob Larson, the man who has dealt with more demons than anyone on the planet, show you how to overcome every obstacle of every day. Stop the cycles of failure, poverty and sickness. Break family curses at the ROOT! Discover why you are the way you are and immediately change destructive habits. If you have demons, you’ll be delivered.

Let’s just say to fundamentalist nutbags like Pastor Bob, anything that clashes with the pastor’s interpretation of the Bible is all Satanism and demons. And his list of what demons can do is pretty impressive: Generational curses, STDs, anger, promiscuity, loud noises, earthquakes, and crank phone calls are just some of the weapons demons use to torment Christians who have opened the door for possession by simply reading a daily horoscope or knowing someone who does.

Last year Anderson Cooper had the teen exorcettes on his show. It was hilarious:

Late Night: The Devil Made Him Do It?

In 1997, metal music was pretty much over–grunge had killed it. But that year, Pat Boone released In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy, his white bread covers of metal music. It was his first hit album in 35 years. It also pissed off a lot of people because metal  was supposed to be the music of SATAN and Pat Boone was an evangelical with a television program on Trinity Broadcast Network, Gospel America. After an appearance wearing black leather and studs on the American Music Awards, clad in his metal garb, he was fired from Gospel America.

But Pat met with Paul Crouch, head of TBN, and was reinstated after he explained he was simply parodying himself. Pat was back on the air.  Boone was friends and golfing buddies with Alice Cooper and the two conceived of the idea, which seems pretty funny and bizarrely hiply unhip. I mean Pat Boone sanitized some of the greatest songs of all time, like “Sha-boom” and “Tutti Frutti,” so why not give a full on white bread treatment to metal?

The result is the stuff of nightmares. But in a very good way.

Left Behind: Nic Cage Whores Himself Out

 

Times must still be tough for Nic Cage. He’s offered himself up to God the Left Behind movie series, and it’s really kinda gross. Well, maybe there are some gross points involved, though I wouldn’t hold my breath on the Academy Award-winning actor getting rich off those: The original Left Behind only grossed $4.2 million at the box office in 2001, making it the 18th most successful  Christian-themed/Christian-produced movie of all time, lagging far behind the The Passion of the Christ, the Narnia series, both The Omega Code movies (that  is pretty sad, those Omega Code flicks sucked massively), and a lot of movies that no one outside of a mega-church supper has ever heard of, like Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed  (no comment), End of the Spear, and One Night with the King (why do those last two titles make me think of M2M porn?).

According to the Christian Post, Paul Lalonde, CEO of Stoney Lake Entertainment and co-founder of Cloud Ten Pictures, which produced and distributed the first three Left Behinds, two of which went straight to video, said his company was rebooting Left Behind in order to give it the blockbuster treatment many fans and one of the bestselling novels’ authors, Tim LaHaye, had felt the original version deserved.  Producer Lalonde, who co-wrote the script for this version of Left Behind as well as co-writing the direct-to-video Left Behind II: Tribulation Force and having solo writing credits for the initial Left Behind, told the Christian Post:

It has always been my goal to produce a big-budget version of ‘Left Behind’ that would appeal to a wider audience. The resources to do this exist now where they didn’t back in 2000.

The “big budget” is estimated at $15million, small by today’s blockbuster standards but big enough to cover special effects and with teen-fan faves Chad Michael Murray and Ashley Tisdale (from High School Musical) and a PG-13 rating, it might draw enough to make its money back. Expect a lot of action: Director Vic Adams has worked as a stunt director on numerous films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Rambo III, The Green Hornet, and Charlie’s Angels, and  began his career as a stuntman in You Only Live Twice and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. He has directed one film, Army of One, but has an impressive résumé as a second unit director.

But Nicolas Cage? Srsly wtf are you thinking?  Nic Cage, by starring in this movie, you’re promoting a worldview that is negative, narrow, destructive, jingoistic, rigid, anti-sex, anti-comic books, anti-cool, and uptight. Left Behind upholds the pre-tribulation, absolutely nutbag, we-have-to-be-right-so-we’ll-bring-about-the-end-of-the-world thought process that’s at the foundation of the Assemblies of God, other Seven Hills Dominionists, and prophetic, evangelical Conservative Christians. Nic, don’t you understand that eschatology is scatology? Didn’t you used to be edgy, underground, bizarrely hip? This is not a risky role, this is pathetic. All I can think, aside from you needing cash, is that you wanted to give the internets some new memes. But Cage denies he takes roles for paychecks, telling the Guardian:

I’m one of those Americans who believes in working. If you’ve made mistakes in the past, you don’t just roll over on people or cave in, you find a way through it. But in film acting, for some reason you get criticised for working.

But this was the best role you felt you were offered for the time period? Wow.  In all fairness, Cage has three movies released or scheduled for release in 2013, the animated The Croods, Joe, and Frozen Ground which co-stars John Cusack and came out in June on limited release and video-on-demand. Left Behind, still in production, and Tokarev, an action film set in the Russian mob, now in post-production, will be released next year. Four other films have Nicolas Cage’s name attached, but only the Paul Schrader-directed  The Dying of the Light has a release date listed on IMDBpro.com.

At least Kirk Cameron, who starred in the original three  Left Behinds and Michael York who appeared in the execrable laugh/shite fest  The Omega Code and Megiddo: The Omega Code 2 have the excuse they are fundie Christians to fall back on. (Same could be said about John Travolta and Battlefield Earth, though Vinnie Barbarino was promoting a different, totalitarian belief system altogether.) The only thing that makes sense is that Cage needs money: At one point he owned two castles, fifteen luxury properties, a fleet of Rolls Royces, and a Gulfstream jet, and yet owed millions in back taxes to the tune of $14 million which he is paying off, And faced three multi-million dollar lawsuits. He blamed his business manager, who in turn blamed the actor’s lavish lifestyle, saying he had urged actor to cut back and to set aside $10 million as cushion:

to alleviate the financial pressure to take film roles that might be detrimental to his career.

Wow, a slave to Mamon indeed. I wonder how much of the estimated $15 million budget Cage is being paid. And did the film producers do their due diligence? Cage has said he has no religion and he donated to Al Gore’s campaign. But maybe that doesn’t matter to Cloud Ten Productions. But it might matter to the audience, though clearly, from the film’s poster, Cage does get left behind, so maybe that’s fairness in advertising.

(And Chad Michael Murray, who played super dreamboat Lucas Scott on One Tree Hill, is this the best you can do? I’m embarrassed for you. Maybe you’re embarrassed too, because your website doesn’t mention Left Behind in its news section. Though you did play young David Alexander in Megiddo: The Omega Code 2, so maybe you’re acting on faith.)

Tim LaHaye, who conceived of and co-wrote the hugely successful Left Behind books with Jerry Jenkins, was a member of the original board of directors of the Moral Majority and an organizer of the Council for National Policy. And if that’s not enough conservative credentials, LaHaye was the former co-chair of Jack Kemp’s presidential campaign. But LaHaye is not happy about the script, telling the Christian Post:

It’s probably the worst script I’ve ever read. And I’ve read scores of them. The plot line is nothing like the book. The only thing they retain are the names of the people, and maybe places. There is no redemptive value to this movie.

But hell, LaHaye has never been happy about the Left Behind movies in the past, calling them

church basement movies.

He took Cloud Ten to court in a case that lasted nine years because he was disappointed that 2001′s Left Behind starring Kirk Cameron didn’t get the initial theatrical production he said the contract had called for and he had dreamed about. Um, because no one cared enough to invest in a large production?  Granted the film rights were negotiated between June 1996 and April 1997, before the Christian prophecy novels became a publishing phenomenon, but that’s a gamble everyone took. LaHaye lost the lawsuit, but had the option to remake the series, and if he did not exercise that option (which he didn’t), the rights would revert back to Cloud Ten (which they have). According to Left Behind’s website:

The LEFT BEHIND reboot will focus on the hours immediately following the rapture. It will not cover everything that the first book includes, but will be more specifically concentrated on those first few hours and the chaos of the world in the wake of millions of people vanishing with no explanation…

Without warning, millions of people around the globe simply vanish.

All that remains are their clothes and belongings … and an overwhelming sense of terror. The vanishings cause unmanned vehicles to crash and burn.

Emergency forces everywhere are devastated. Gridlock, riots and looting overrun the cities. And there is no one to help or provide answers. In an instant, the earth has been plunged into darkness.

For RAY STEELE, the pilot of a jumbo jet, it means trying to calm his hysterical passengers who saw loved ones vanish before their eyes.

It remains to been seen if Nic Cage,who stars as Ray Steele, can redeem the Left Behind  franchise and/or if Christians will  flock to the  theaters to see a movie that stars a former -Papist-turned-non-believer and who’s been so crucified by the man who immaculately conceived the original canon. I just know I’m going to hell for making these jokes.

Liberals, Religious Right Cursing NSA in Orgiastic Ritual

There’s a weird Top Sekrit location where the left, the middle, the conservatives, and the absolute raving bonkerites meet, dropping their armor and  laying aside all their other conflicts. Lately the meal served at this swingers club is a boiling stew of stupid cooked up by the NSA which has managed unite almost every group from the far right religious fringe to the tree hugging vegans on the left.

Case in point, the video below from Former Navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt of the ‘Pray In Jesus Name’ website  (and truly, after exploring his website, I’m really glad he’s no longer a military chaplain!):

There is a spirit of  secrecy that is really just lawbreaking in its lawlessness, and they’re doing this all behind the scenes and they’ll send out a public statement, ‘Oh we don’t have a domestic spying program.’ But they voted to fund a domestic spying program, they’re just calling it something else. And we’re exposing that, and really it has its roots in a Satanic evil spirit of violation, of tyranny really…

And then “Dr Chaps” goes on to quote some scripture and pray away the demon of tyranny who is

using the White House occupant, that demonic spirit that is oppressing us…Father, we hope that you will help the president repent, repent of this violation, of his defense now of violating our Fourth Amendment rights.

So on behalf of Americans everywhere: All races, colors and creeds, of all sexualities, all income levels and classes, let us now all come together and send out a rousing thank you to the NSA for uniting us against their snooping policies. Meanwhile, check our Dr Chaps in all his NSA demon bustin’ glory:

Pat Robertson Says Being Transgender Is Not A Sin, No Such Thing As Ghosts

Pat Robertson has been making headlines lately.  With the help of some creative callers to his show “The 700 Club,” Robertson can’t seem to stay out of the news.

It all began earlier this week when a viewer named David asked how he should refer to his transgender colleagues given that their gender status had changed in eyes of the law.

Robertson responded;

“I think there are men who are in a woman’s body,” he said. “It’s very rare. But it’s true — or women that are in men’s bodies — and that they want a sex change. That is a very permanent thing, believe me, when you have certain body parts amputated and when you have shot up with various kinds of hormones. It’s a radical procedure. I don’t think there’s any sin associated with that. I don’t condemn somebody for doing that.”

Known for his frequent anti-gay sentiments — and in the wake of Pope Francis’ own admission that it was beyond him to judge gay clerics — Robertson’s response came as a welcome surprise in some corners of the internet, while yet others began bending over backwards to explain away any perceptions of being pro-gay.

More recently, questions have surfaced as to whether or not the 83 year old is simply being trolled by callers wanting advice on how to address supernatural beings:

“My house is haunted.  There’s moaning coming from the walls, lights turn on and off, the TV changes channels on its own, the bed move, stuff floats off tables, mirrors break, and there is sometimes a creepy fog. The ghosts look like people, but have dark blue light around their feet and hands.  What do I do?”

Robertson’s answer?

Burn the house down!

The severity of his response should come as no surprise.  This is the same guy, after all, who suggested that Katrina was God’s response to America’s abortion policy.

Robertson goes on to suggest that the bible doesn’t support the concept of ghosts and implies that this viewer is actually plagued by demons and should therefore look into staging an exorcism.

So there you have it.

Ghosts don’t exist, demons do, and being transgender is okay!

The diversity of questions posed on his show likely stems in large part to how simple it is for viewers to submit a question.

Who knows what they might ask next.

Opera Singer Dedicates Performance to Teen Suicide Victim, Westboro Urges More Teen Suicides

Internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato announced that she would dedicate July 17th’s  performance of  Rossini’s La donna del lago to the memory of gay New Mexico teen bullying victim Carlos Vigil and his family.

Vigil, 17, attempted suicide on Saturday after posting a heartbreaking note online in which he described being a target of bullying. His family later removed Carlos from life support, and he died yesterday.

She is performing the title role of Elena with the Santa Fe Opera. On her Facebook page,  La DiDonato, who is American-born, writes:

Tonight I would like to dedicate my performance of La Donna del Lago to the memory of Carlos Vigil ~ a New Mexican teen who committed suicide after being mercilessly bullied throughout school. His suicide note is beyond tragic.

But I would also like to dedicate it to every single child who bullied him along the way, and those who stood by silently as well ~ may they witness the great loss of a precious human life and experience a RADICAL change of heart, working to obliterate bullying and discrimination for the rest of their days.

Rest in peace, Carlos

Here is La DiDonato performing “Tanti affetti … Fra il padre” from Donna del lago

Contrast this with the unspeakable <adjective, gerund, noun> Westboro Baptist Church, which, after the death of Glee actor Cory Monteith, urged the actor’s fiancée and Glee co-star, Lea Michele, to kill herself and the show’s fans to join the pair for a wedding in hell.

Rick Perry Voodoo Dolls: This Witch Says “Banish Them!”

I am a practicing witch, and I can laugh at my belief system; I do easily and often. It is just as goofy sounding as other people’s (Transubstantiation? Space lice from exploding volcanoes? Flying donkey?). But I do cringe at things like these Rick Perry voodoo dolls because they perpetuate dangerous, off-base stereotypes and do nothing to help either pro-choice factions or non-Christians.

When it comes to the Texas Legislature and Governor Rick Perry’s plans to shut down Texas abortion clinics [corset maker Michelle Sinched of Mr. Sinched] is the exact opposite of amused. Now she’s taking the fight to the man she calls “Governor Goodhair” in her own way; with voodoo dolls of the Governor complete with tampon pins to act out your anger and or hexes upon his person…

Each Perry voodoo doll is handmade by Sinched from materials left over from her many other projects. You can purchase a casual Perry doll in a anti-abortion coat hanger T-shirt for $25, or a suited version for $30. They are also available as a pair for $50, and each comes with a blank sign so you may write the pro-life slogan or Perry gaffe of your choice. The clothes are removable.

Sinched plans to give all profits to Planned Parenthood.

Earlier this month at an Austin, Texas  rally

the prolife side sang Amazing Grace. The pro-abortion side tried to drown them out by shouting “Hail Satan!”

Now granted those leading the chant might have been agitators. Or they might have been anti-Christian pro-choicers. Still, yuck.

Fundamentalists view the battle against abortion as a holy war, a Crusade. Those who are pro-choice have a variety of reasons for wanting abortion rights and access to birth control. Despite what the creepier areas of the interwebs would like to make you believe, very few, if any, of those reasons have to do with sacrificing babies to some dark force which would then uh make things worse than they already are. Here’s where the theology gets complicated and stops making sense. But basically, for fundies abortion– followed closely by The Gays–is the reason everything is wrong in America.

Fundamentalists want to make abortion about religion, about theocratic control of the individual. By countering with voodoo dolls and chants of

Hail Satan

pro-choicers are just playing into their hands.
