A Stand Against Abuse

Polytheist.Com Update  — Release Delay: A Stand Against Abuse
Our long-awaited and very exciting launch of — a new online hub dedicated to Polytheist community dialog, discussion, theology, writing and movements — was delayed briefly early this week due to some technology related issues, which have since been resolved. However, while we prepared for our launch, a very disturbing thing took place that rippled across various spiritual, magical, and religious circles on the internet. Amidst one of many online controversies and disagreements, a prominent leader, voice, and business owner of the occult and broad pagan community both online and in the cities of Salem, MA and New Orleans, LA, took it upon himself to “dox” a few dozen internet users involved in the other side of an argument, taking actions to release their public identities to the internet (and stripping them of their pseudonyms, magical aliases, and religious names). When one of these — who is one of our columnists here at — communicated that she employed an alias online in order to protect herself and her young children from a violent predator, this prominent community leader and business owner responded with a statement of bemused sadism so vile I will not repeat it here.
What followed was several days of important community dialog, at least two radio shows dedicated to discussing this (and other recent issues in religious and spiritual leadership unbefitting of our — or any — communities), and innumerable blogs, Tumblr discussions, and private discourses around the subject of exactly why using the language of violent sexual assault against another human being — especially a woman who has just expressed very real concerns for the physical safety of her young children — is never, ever going to be okay. It doesn’t matter how angry you are. It doesn’t matter what “led up to” that point. It is never acceptable for anyone — especially a person claiming titles of leadership and influence — to say these things.
Our community took to the internet and championed this message. An apology was issued, a response to the apology was issued, and — most importantly — the victim of this criminal and morally unforgivable act was heard, respected, honored.
I got to know this courageous woman more closely than I could have expected to, over the last few days, and spent a lot of time in conversation and support with her. I saw fear, stood witness through terror and tears, and watched a person I am proud to count amongst this site’s growing team, champion herself and the rights of all women, mothers, children, and survivors of all stripes. I watched integrity happen, and I watched this set of transformations take place in a backdrop of humility, hesitation, concern, shame, dignity and a torrent of frantic emotions around a transition from hidden anonymity to public spectacle and “outed” identity.
This last word is an important one: identity. It is what this site is all about, in some pretty literal ways: space for the right to differentiate and self identify our religious selves, practices, movements, communities, in safety and unmolested dignity, grace and foundational respect. The very act of stripping a person or a group of their right to identity is counter to everything in Polytheist movements and efforts, just as it is counter to basic human rights. It is a disgusting violation unbecoming of any community in any land or context anywhere in our world. Assaults on identity are used in torture and interrogation and confinement practices to fundamentally strip a person of their own human dignity, Will, and voice. These assaults will never be tolerated on our watch. As a hub providing space for Polytheists of a diverse set of configured identities and places — including two columnists who are literally absent freedom as they write from present terms in state prisons — we will endeavor to champion the cause of the rights of devoted Will, and of voice, and of the gods-given and gods-guarded dignity of identity.
In light of all of this, we have delayed the launch of our site, in order to not allow its unveiling to distract from the important discussions that happened around this very important issue and the events associated with it.
Please join us early next week as we take our site live, with an initial release of ten Polytheist columns, which will each be updated in weekly and monthly intervals. Our bold and diverse team of regular columnists is over two-dozen strong, and these voices will join the site in sequence following our initial launch, with new and exciting columns slotted for release in regular intervals.

Christian Day Warlock flushed down toilet

Christian Day Warlock flushed down toilet
 Posted in Satanism
by satanicviews
   Christian Day is a self-described warlock in the pagan community, who considers himself more Satanic than Satanists, offers an interesting case study of a fame hungry fraud who destroyed himself when encouraging rapists to rape women much to the anger of all his customers in the pagan community. Christian Day built up his personal brand of fantasy through manipulation of the gullible US media rather like the Satanic Temple has done, building up a successful business and personal reputation amongst the pagans and other dabblers of the occult. Based in Salem USA, the location of famous witch trials, Christian Day enjoyed riding around the city in full warlock regalia on his motorbike whilst pitching himself to the world as the chief spokesperson of all pagans. Christian Day in recent years made US headlines with a public cursing ceremony of Charlie Sheen for daring to describe himself as a warlock, and has claimed he now owns the warlock brand with his own unique definition of the word. Though in the context Daniel Defoe uses warlock in his 1726 The History of the Devil he describes a warlock as a male witch: “Of the Tools the Devil works with, (viz.) Witches, Wizards or Warlocks, …” (CHAP. IX) Note Defoe lists witches, followed by wizards and the key word “or” to link wizards and warlocks together. It is unfortunately the case that mostly all pantomime pagans or Satanists like Christian Day are theatrical clowns who are largely ignorant about the paths they parade about in clothed in their Halloween costumes. Pagans love their female goddess archetypes so the worst thing a self-described pagan can do is to encourage people to rape women as Christian Day did during a trollish flame war between himself and other pagans. Feeling it was his moral duty Christian Day has been outing fellow witches by publishing their personal details on the internet, and in one case of an individual claiming to be stalked he said: “I hope your stalker has some fun with you… Oh, and by the way, if he rapes you, please call out my name while he does so.” One thing a business brand does not do is upset its customers, and Christian Day managed to achieve a spectacular torpedo strike against his own business when he upset the pagan community, his potential customers, when he encouraged the rape of women. I know that some pagans feel they are better than us Satanists, but then I see this clown Christian Day, and I ask “really?”

So This Thing Happened . . .

The On-going Spiritual Saga of the Witch, Photographer, Artist, and Poet Amorella Moon.

So this is a thing that happened… Christian Day, a pagan writer and store owner, sent me this love letter after outing my account name on Facebook. Like many people who have an alias on facebook, I have a rather good reason for doing so. (I have a Meatspace stalker, who use to mail me bits of dead things, and threaten my children, because he wanted me to bear only HIS children. It was a living nightmare that I lived for over six months.) Alas… I was not very happy with Mr. Day for this, and told him so. This screenshot shows his response. You are not misreading that. He actually said “…if he rapes you, please call out my name while he does.” Facebook has been less than helpful during all this… As a matter of fact, they have sided with HIM, yanking my post with this screenshot on it, and putting my account on a 24 hour hold for “Harassment.” of Mr. Day. I have… No real game plan at this point, other than not allowing this to go unseen by the many Pagans on the web. I have had such an outpouring of support from my friends and the general pagan community on facebook that it honestly made me cry. On another note, I have had to un-relax, knowing my stalker is still out there and can find me now. But, I will not back down. This shit IS NOT OK for our so called “Pagan Leaders” to do. Rock on my Beauties… Pass this along if you wish, repost it everywhere, and let us not allow this “Man” to have a moment peace until he answers for what he has done.
