|Do the American People really want the Religious Freedom Amendment ?|
"When I said during my presidential bid that I would only bring Christians and Jews into the government, I hit a firestorm. `What do you mean?' the media challenged me. `You're not going to bring atheists into the government? How dare you maintain that those who believe in the Judeo-Christian values are better qualified to govern America than Hindus and Muslims?' My simple answer is, `Yes, they are.'" - Pat Robertson, The New World Order.
"Off the record, who can tell me the date the 10 Commandments were repealed as law? I'll tell you when--never. The 10 Commandments were never repealed. That's the problem with people today--they don't abide by the 10 Commandments." - Judge Bromley Hall, N.Y. And that's just the "problem" that Rep. Istook is seeking to eradicate...

| ||Bev's plea for Unity...|

"Back in my own history, I was involved in the acrimonious collapse of Gerald Gardner's works. And all the in-fighting and destructive energy that was flying around at that time in the Isle of Mann. I was only 20 years old at the time, and even then sincere in my belief in the goddess. And though all this unpleasantness, and witch-bitching in no way affected my belief in and love for the nascent goddess, it left me with a lifetime problem with group politics..." continued...
|Judge not, lest ye be judged... A court is in the position to rule on points of law. This Alabama judge takes his job very seriously. We should take him seriously, too. Because if Judge Roy Moore (see frightening image just to your right) wins in this courtroom, Christianity may become the official state religion. This is scary stuff we are talking about folks... This has been going on for months and OUR Voice MUST be heard... || |

New This Week: New This Month: Last Months Highlights:
|Out of the Closet on Beltaine Eve?... YES!|
Although we of the Witches' Voice certainly do not claim or have any reason to believe that Ellen is a Witch, she IS now out of the closet and the parallels related to "coming out of the broom closet" are just to similar to ignore... A substantial portion of the Witchcraft community IS Gay and have to deal with both situations. This episode was both historic and moving (there wasn't a dry eye here at the Witches' Voice). We of the Witches' Voice salute you Ellen for your honesty and courage.
or In The Closet - Does the "IN" stand for "IN-Visible"?
| || |
Closets... Just about everyone has one or two. As kids, we knew that they were a great place to hide. We were invisible. No one could see us in the dark perching on a pile of Dad's old shoes. We would wait...hearts pounding. We would wait... for someone to fling open the door. The anticipation was almost more than we could stand.
There comes a time when most of us stop playing this game... And for Ellen DeGeneres, that time has come... Click HERE for Wren's commentary on this historic episode. (We love you Ellen)
