Remember Julian II

On this date, June 26, 363 AD, Julian II died in battle. The Wikipedia has a pretty good entry on him. The best book I've read on Julian is "The Last Pagan: Julian the Apostate and the Death of the Ancient World. The author of the book has a great blog loaded with information on the emperors of Rome. He currently features some fascinating YouTube clips.

Goddess gets Award, thanx Bolivia!

Mother Earth To Be Given Rights Equal to Humans in new Bolivian Law

From TreeHugger:

...Bolivia is about to pass laws granting all of nature equal rights to human beings. The laws were first proposed after the World People's Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth and show the deep differences in zeitgeist between Bolivia and...pretty much the rest of the planet...

TSA fires Wiccan

Wiccan TSA Agent Fired

Yikes! Once again, Xtains flexing their muscle:

...Smith claims that for over a year she found herself subject to school-yard bullying, and harassment based on her Wicca practices. However, her complaints to officials higher-up went unheeded.

They are at it again

Ugh, Xtians trying to convert Wiccans:

"Whether spellwork is effective or not," writes Dodd, according to The Telegraph, "has no bearing on the psychological damage that can be done to a young person who is convinced that they have summoned the dead, or have performed a spell that has hurt or injured another."

Oh yeah, all us Wiccans are summoning the dead and casting evil spells! As the author claims to be an Ex-Wiccan, I'd like to know what tradition she is from, as it seems they did not practice Wicca. But what's really strange is the comment "Whether spellwork is effective or not...". That seems to harken back to the early days of Xtianity, where the Apologists did not discount--out of hand--the efficacy of spellwork or influence of the Gods.
