Democratic Party Officials Arrested in Satanic Ritual Case

This one could only have been written by Karl Rove. In North Carolina, police have arrested two democratic officials for their involvement in Satanic rituals involving shackling people to beds, caging people, and deyning people food and water. Joy Johnson, 30, a third vice-chairwoman of the Durham County Democratic Party and vice chairwoman of the Young Democrats, was charged Friday with two counts of aiding and abetting. Her husband, Joseph Scott Craig, 25, was charged with second-degree rape, second-degree kidnapping and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon.

Among the allegations are charges that Craig beat a man with a cane and a cable cord and assaulted a woman with a wooden cane and raped her.
Notably, Johnson stressed efforts to recruit young people to the party. Both of them are partners with Diana Palmer, first vice chairwoman for the local Democrats, in a company called Indigo Dawn, which advertises services “to promote enlightenment and assist in the development and self-empowerment and divine potential.” These services include “intuitive guidance, past-life regression, spirit guide communication and healing and cleansing.”

On July 2, Palmer was arrested and charged.

“Past-life regression” sounds like what the Democrats are accusing McCain of in his campaign.

In anticipation of the frenzy at Fox, I wanted to suggest some headlines:


2. Who is behind the Obama surge, could it be . . . . Satan?

3. Does the “D” in DNC Stands for “Demonic”?

    I thought it was a meeting of the RNC or maybe the Stone Cutters.

    Uh-Oh, found a heretic on my pilgrimage to the Kingdom of the Worms. Josey Wales said “buzzards gotta eat, same as worms,” so I shot him in furtherance of the faith. Can I be a saint now?

    What a pile of horse malarkey. You must even now be uncoiling from the pretzel you’ve contorted yourself into. You know as well as I that the Bible never repudiates or even discourages slavery. In fact, is expressly promotes it–even sexual slavery. So now we are to believe that God promotes bad to foster good. Do I sound that naive? Wonder why God only permitted slavery in this Country until 1863? Were things so “good” in the middle of the Civil War that he didn’t need it any more? Maybe that was just coincidence that Lincoln came up with the idea out of compassion, morality, and the good sense to win the war at the same exact time as the deity did. Oh I am sure God inspired him because when you start with the conclusion and work backwards, you can imagine all kinds of rationalizations to prove your point. I guess General Lee was inspired by Satan to oppose Lincoln.

    I also enjoyed your quotations from the Bible to prove the existence of your anthropomorphic god. I guess the logic goes this way: I know God exists because the Bible says so, and I know the Bible is true because it says that too. Ok got it. The only problem is that your logic works for the Qur’an, Bhagavad Gita, Tao-te-ching, Veda, and their associated deities and wise men.

    And one final point, what kind of all-powerful, compassionate deity “permits” all manner of human suffering to be visited upon innocent children and adults by both human and divine means, and calls that morality. One must conclude that she is either powerless to prevent it, or wills it to occur. I am not sure you would prefer either choice. Maybe there is an option 3? Maybe she just made us and moved on to bigger and better things. That was good enough a concept for our founders, but apparently not sophists like you.

    In the words of Steven Tyler, “Dream On.”

  5. Mespo: Here ya go. So easy to prove you have no clue:

    A slave is property
    Exodus 21:20-21

    (Exodus 21:20-21) – “And if a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod and he dies at his hand, he shall be punished. 21If, however, he survives a day or two, no vengeance shall be taken; for he is his property.”

    God permitted slavery to exist in both Old and New Testament times. But this does not mean that slavery was a God-ordained system.

    Slavery was an invention of fallen man, not of God.

    Nevertheless, God allowed it to exist the way He allows other things to exist that He does not approve of: murder, lying, rape, theft, etc. We all know that God gave man free will and that will takes us where he does not want us to go, but knows we will.

    God also works within the system of fallen man and makes allowances for the freedom and failures of mankind within that system. We see this, for example, in Jesus saying that God allowed divorce because of the hardness of peoples’ hearts (Matt. 19:8).

    The fact is, people are sinners and do things contrary to the will of God. But, even though people have murdered, lied, raped, and stolen, God has still used people who’ve committed these sins to accomplish His divine will. Moses murdered an Egyptian but was used by God to deliver Israel. David committed adultery but was promised to have the Messiah descend from his seed.

    This is proof that though God desires that people not do what they do, He permits them their freedom, yet uses the system and the people according to His divine will.

  6. Mespo,

    Well done my son! Now go forth and seekth worms!!! Woe onto ye who doth not eat of the worms of the earth!

  7. Seth,

    P.S. Almost all violence is justified as being “good for” the person receiving it, especially religiously inspired violence. I suspect the people who were in the senario above thought they were being “corrected” as a way to purify their souls. I took a look at the Indigo website and it seems clear they see violence as a way to purity. It’s how people get sucked in–pain is the pathway to strength. That lie is repeted many times in this society. It is still a lie.


  8. Mespo,

    Commence said worship immediately!


    Stop justifying violence. I do not think you mean badly by what you are saying, but there is NO EXCUSE for a Zen master to beat his pupils. There are many ways to bring people back into present conscienceness, none of which involve violence. This is an exercise in power by a teacher over a student. It is wrong and abusive. If we don’t stop excusing hierarchical and violent actions we will not get anywhere.


  9. Jill:

    “Certainly I must agree that there are many kind people who are religious.”

    I agree, just as there are many kind people who are bird watchers too. Should I pay homage to my local ornithologist?

    P.S. Sorry in advance for the “smart alec” retort, I just couldn’t resist.

  10. It’s a fine distinction, but I don’t think Zen masters whack people as punishment. They do it to bring the meditator back into the present. It can seem to be a punishment for getting distracted, but the intention is to help — you want something that will bring them back into the present without also having to form conscious thought, e.g., to answer a question. Hence the occasional references to hitting somebody with ‘grandmotherly kindness’.

    “Time & again critics of the Bible post a verse here or there that in itself seems strange or downright cruel, but upon reading what the Scholars that have interpreted the Hebrew language of the time and IN THE CONTEXT of the whole chapter(s) the verse relates, you discover the critics are 180 degrees off mark.”

    How about giving me the redeeming historical context or the benevolent Hebrew language interpretation of this passage that clearly supports human slavery:

    “And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished. Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: for he is his money [property].” Exodus 21:20-21 (KJV)

    Surely the words of the beneficent Creator of the Universe. I’ve got my rudder in the water waiting to make that 180!

  12. Dundar,

    I appreciate your response to what I wrote. I disagree with you on your first point, although I understand what you mean. Certainly I must agree that there are many kind people who are religious.

    Biblical scholars do not all agree upon the meaning of the bible. Some scholars believe the bible is the recieved word of god as is, in the english bible we now read, unchanged from ancient times. Other scholars, such as Bart Ehrman who wrote both; Misquoting Jesus and God’s Problem, do read the original languages of the bible, have made direct translations and may come to conclusions that would startle many Christians.

    We will have to disagree on this point.


  13. Jill. Religion is NOT the problem, the problem is any Religion, including Islam or Christianity, that has been usurped by evil people for personal gain.

    PS: if you are unwilling to quote Biblical Scholar’s interpretation of God’s word for the verses you post as being somehow alarming, then don’t post them at all.

    Time & again critics of the Bible post a verse here or there that in itself seems strange or downright cruel, but upon reading what the Scholars that have interpreted the Hebrew language of the time and IN THE CONTEXT of the whole chapter(s) the verse relates, you discover the critics are 180 degrees off mark.

  14. Below is the response to this story: The poster offers the following helpful reference from the Bible…

    Ephesians 6:11-13 (New International Version)

    11Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

    I am sick of the insanity and cruelty being perpetrated in the name of religion. The connection between physical pain and belief is a deep one. Above is the new age version of Opus Dei and The Family.
    The bible itself recommends beating one’s children and sending one’s daughter out to be raped for the protection of strangers. Zen masters do in fact cane their students. Pick your religion, you will see violence advocated in the sacred texts and by its practitioners. I am so sorry for the victims of these cult members. If any religious leader tells you to commit acts of violence or to submit to them, for any reason, RUN.

  15. This story makes no sense. There is nothing here to indicate
    Baphomet is on the loose.

    Maybe it is a Karl Rove plant.

  16. How soon before we read that although they are admittedly Democrats they are suffering from PTSD as a direct result of Bush & Republican policies and so these dispicable acts are not their fault – they go much deeper – to the core of the President’s policies.
