"Of all the questions you might want to ask / about angels, the only one you ever hear / is how many can dance on the head of a pin." -- Billy Collins, bio {Others' quotes}


Pagans Have A Right To Be Discriminated Against Too

Note to the archeologists in the future: After our armageddon, it should be obvious that our fear is based in stupidity not knowledge.

MSNBC reported on a Wiccan who worked for TSA airport security who was fired for casting spells, after she blew the whistle on workplace practices. It's an issue complicated by Establishment Clause issues since the TSA is a government agency. Story contains this gem:
... her former mentor in on-the-job training, officer Mary Bagnoli, reported that she was afraid of Smith because she was a witch who practiced witchcraft. She accused Smith of following her on the highway one snowy evening after work and casting a spell on the heater of her car, causing it not to work. Well, actually, Bagnoli said she hadn’t seen Smith’s car, but she had seen Smith. “I thought to myself,” Smith recalls, “what, did she see me flying on my broom?”
Carole Smith proudly acknowledges being a witch, a practitioner of Wicca, the pagan religion.
