Random Pagan Verse:
It is not forbidden to say, "There is Witchcraft in the land", for the Christians say so themselves
and have made it heresy not to believe so; but always say, "I know nothing of it here, though it may be elsewhere." If any person speaks about the Craft outside of the Circle, say,
"Do not speak of such things -- it frightens me. It is bad luck to talk about such things." Say this for this reason: the Christians have their spies everywhere. These spies have been
known to talk as if they were drawn to the Craft and as if they would want to come to our meetings, and they say such things as, "My fathers and forefathers worshipped the Old Ones, and my mother; I
would like to worship in this way myself." To all of these, tell them that you do not know what they are talking about, and that you wish they would stop. But to others, say,
"It is silly to talk about Witches flying around in the air; they would have to be lighter than feathers or thistle-down. Besides, everyone knows that Witches are all bleary-eyed old hags;
what fun could they possibly have at their meetings, and why should I want to participate? And besides, you know we were taught in school that there are no such things as Witches."
Always make fun of the subject, that we may worship in peace when the persecution ends: let us all work for that happy time. May the blessing of the God and the Goddess be upon all who keep this law.

US to ban Electoral offenders in Nigeria

The United States will sanction anybody involved in violence during the March 28 and April 11 elections.

The US Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, who stated this in an opinion on Monday, also described Nigeria as leader of democracy in Africa.



She stated, ?Some individuals worked to undermine the will of the Nigerian people, interfering with electoral processes and resorting to violence and voter intimidation.

?We regret any loss of life and destruction of property. As Secretary (John) Kerry said when he visited Nigeria in January, violence and rigging have no place in democratic elections.

?Anyone found to have incited violence or interfered with electoral processes will be unwelcome in the United States and subject to visa sanctions.?

Commending Nigerians, she added, ?By participating peacefully and enthusiastically in the recent electoral processes in March and April, millions of you stood strong to re-affirm Nigeria as a leader for democracy in Africa?and around the world.?

Thomas-Greenfield congratulating Nigerians and the Independent National Electoral Commission on the April 11 vote, which built upon the earlier successes in March.

She noted that many Nigerians waited for hours to cast their ballots and see their votes counted.

The assistant secretary said, ?Elections are ultimately about people ? the volunteers and poll workers, who manage polling stations; the party candidates and supporters, who craft policies and political platforms; the civil society activists, who work for transparency; the journalists, who report on the campaigns and events on election day; the political leaders, who accept victory or concede defeat, especially when stepping down, is in the country?s best interest.?

According to her, under INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega?s steadfast leadership, the staff of INEC succeeded in conducting a generally smooth electoral process and making improvements on the exercise between March 28 and April 11.
