Random Pagan Verse:
These laws are ordained to help us in our difficulties. No person, no matter how large the injury or injustice they incur, may use the Art in any way to do evil or harm anyone. But they may use the Art, after great consultation with the elders
and fellow coveners, to keep the Christians and their tools from harming anyone -- but only to constrain them. To this end, some day men will say "That man says he is a mighty persecutor of Witches, but all we ever see him torture are old women -- we cannot see that
they have hurt anyone, and if they are all such powerful Witches, why has he not been harmed?" They will see him as the evil person he is, regardless of his professed beliefs. We know that too many people have died because someone had a grudge against them, or were persecuted
because another wanted their wealth or because they were too poor to bribe the witch-hunters. And many have died only for being old women -- so many that most men now seem to believe that only old women are Witches. This is to our advantage, for it turns many suspicious eyes away from us;
but we mourn deeply for the old women. Still, in England and Scotland, it has been hundreds of years since a Witch "died the death"; be vigilant, for the misuse of our power might begin the persecutions again. Never break this law, no matter how much you are tempted. Never consent to the
breaking of this law: even a High Priestess who merely consents to the breaking of this law must be deposed immediately, for it is the blood of all the Witches that she endangers. DO ONLY GOOD, and then only when it is safe to do anything at all.

Voters celebrate defeat of Gambia's 'several years' president

Adama Barrow has defeated Yahya Jammeh, who ran the country for more than 20 years. Jammeh surprised observers by admitting defeat, despite once boasting he would rule Gambia for a billion years.
In a political upset, outgoing Gambian President Yahya Jammeh conceded defeat in the country's election late Friday. Before losing in the polls to newcomer Adama Barrow, Jammeh had ruled the small West African nation for 22 years.


"Gambians have spoken," Jammeh said, after calling Barrow to congratulate him. "I came on a Friday on December 22, 1994, and today, December 2, 2016, you have decided to put me in the back seat."
The longtime strongman, who came to power in a military coup, said he would now "live and die" for the Gambian people as a farmer instead of a president. Jammeh garnered around 212,000 votes to Barrow's 263,500 - with a third-party candidate, Mama Kandeh, getting around 103,000 votes.

Many elections since Jammeh came to power have been mired in allegations of foul play, and the country experienced a nationwide Internet blackout on the eve of Friday's vote.
Demonstrators shouted, "Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!" Friday in the streets of the capital, Banjul, as spontaneous celebrations erupted across the city.
