Excuse me for a minute
Alright, I’m done. Sort of. See, this kind of shit…this is. Ugh I have no fucking words. I need more caffeine or something. Wait no, I don’t. Women in India already have a hard time as it is with all the rapes and the Eve Teasing and sexual violence, arranged marriages, chattel bullshit…now this? FUCK just FUCK THEM.
When will the Indian people pull their heads out of their collective asses? Really? I’m not Hindu, but I do believe Those Gods/Goddesses do exist even though I do not personally worship Them and I hope Kali-Ma unleashes holy hell on all those bastards who think this is okay.
I hope Shiva in His infinite wisdom, just looks over at a pretty flower and ignores what She’s doing.
I really hope someone more eloquent in their anger can post something more, because right now I just want to go punch a wall or something. This is just horrific.
So yeah, Witch Hunting is alive and well in parts of the globe. In parts of Africa, there are the Witch Children. (Correction: According to my friend who lives in South Africa, there are witch hunts there as well, his words: “Happens all the damn time. Some girl gets accused of black.magic and she gets lynched, or necklaced. As in a tyre full of petrol. Um that’s set on fire”) (Note: not all of Africa, because I know damn well Africa isn’t a country, but a rather huge continent filled with different countries, cultures and peoples) young kids, attacked, abused, burned and ostracized because some crazy ass missionary preacher says they’re witches. This is mostly in Nigeria and Northern African areas, but there are isolated incidents in the equatorial regions and Sub-Saharan as well.

Seriously, how the FUCK is that acceptable? I’m Pagan. I live in a country that guarantees my human rights and freedoms regardless of religion, sexuality, gender, or creed. I’m LUCKY I live in Canada. This sort of oppression and superstitious bullshit is all over the world. Yes, even down in the USA.
Here is one Pagan’s story of being outed in the “Bible Belt” One story out of probably many out there.
So before I get accused of being anti-Christian, let me tell you this. After the Roman Empire, when have pagans burned Christians alive? When have Pagans outright drowned Christians to see if they were secretly Pagan? When have we persecuted, and destroyed people of other faiths just because they didn’t think the same as us? Please someone tell me because I can’t find a damn incident of it in the history books. I don’t think Christ would approve of any of this bullshit to be honest, and I bet He facepalms and is like “Bro, I’m SO not with those people…” ever since religion in His name was started up.
The Old Ways are still valid. The Gods of yore, before the Abrahamic religions swept up the world by storm, are still alive, we keep them alive. Old Gods of Africa, the Middle East, Egypt, Europe, North America…They all live despite Christianity’s attempt to slaughter them along with their followers.
