Wherein the Wicked Witch Confesses to Being Kind Because the Status Quo is to Be Cruel
*Usual Disclaimer that the Church of Satan has an intentional policy of not having a specific political position on any-damn-thing, meaning my statements regarding the current Administration are mine, alone.
Below you'll find a post by a CoS Priestess, Reverend Gardner, who apparently woke up this morning, just like me, so utterly appalled at what is going on in the Country that she had to 'write it out.' My piece is a little different, but I remain confident that the message is the same--
Want to live a happy, productive life? Don't be a mean asshole, and try to understand where others are coming from. If that needs to be put in a Satanic context kindly look up the Satanic Sins of Solipsism, and regarding Past Orthodoxies.
A few days back on twitter I read a post where a black woman was trying to explain the Megyn Kelly blackface thing. Kell…
Wherein the Wicked Witch Confesses to Being a Coward
In recent months I have been told how pointless being concerned about politics is. I have heard thinking people say things I disagree with on an idealistic and principled level. I have heard friends say things that have hurt, albeit unintentionally. Despite maintaining an even fairness in responses and maintaining the guidelines of my beloved Church of Satan, I never felt I was compromising my values or ethics.
In the last 48 hours I have felt, for the first time in my life, like those who told me it doesn't matter, were right. I feel defeated. Kavanaugh is just the symptom. His winning a seat on the Court, to me, and to anyone who values a woman's right to control her body, is tragic, but not emotionally or legally insurmountable. It would normally be the kind of challenge I would relish. I'd don a cape, swoop in and die on the hill for my belief, a la Anne Frank, that people are basically go…
Wherein the Wicked Witch Welcomes One of Her Favorite People
to the Ranks of the Wickedest of Witches!
Hail, Troj Bruegel!
I should not have to repeat that any of our finalists could easily be seen as an honorable mention. Each of these women continue to inspire and provide yet another reason to feel pride in Church of Satan affiliation.
I am requesting those offering those lovely gifts contact Troj directly for sending info, and sending me a pic of them to put up on this blog.
Wicked Witches of the YearWherein the Wicked Witch Confesses She Is In Such Awe She is Rendered Stupid During this year's process, I monkeyed about with the format only to discover that in an attempt to make less work, I made more work. That is ok, 'live and learn. What hasn't changed, and in fact has only grown, is my admiration for the women in the Church of Satan . I have spent weeks trying to find a way to say what I really feel, which is that every single one of the women in this blog deserve to win this big pile of nothing but genuine respect and admiration. The next task, made more difficult by a recent crappy medical diagnosis (fuck you, Murphy, and everyone who looks like you!) was trying to make everything look "equal" despite the fact that I myself asked for essays long enough to convey the year's personal achievements credited to applied Satanism. Some are a line. Some are pages long. All are exquisite examples Satanic/Wicke…
Life Outside the BoxWherein the Wicked Witch Confesses that she Neither Cares for nor Understands "Normal" People.
Or Maybe They Just Suck?
Regular listeners, old friends, and readers of mine know that with the exceptions of dealing with family and Church of Satan functions I haven't been social/out and about for almost a decade. That changed in July when I determined that being sick and housebound was about as much fun as a lye douche. My Magister was thrilled to introduce me to new friends, and we have had a lot of fun. I've made some truly valuable acquaintances , and I look forward to expanding those into true friendships. I'm excited about life. I'm motivated.
Still, it is hard, when dealing with normal folk, to forget why I isolated myself to begin with. I have long fought against the idea that anyone's workplace, social group, bar scene, or team somehow has more "drama" than any other. My experience is that if there a…
4th Annual Wicked Witch of the Year Nominations and Instructions
Wherein the Wicked Witch Confesses that Demanding 25+ Questionnaires Sounds a Bit Too Lock, Step, Lock, to Her, Bordering on a Kind of Toxic Herd Corporate Feely Thing She Cannot Justify
FUCK THOSE QUESTIONNAIRES!
Once it came to my attention that this process was a colossal pain the ass I consulted my three wise women, blew those ladies off pretty seriously, and made an executive decision. I want an essay per nominee. The nominee can write it, or have it done by a proxy of her choice. This is because a few of those who made nominations are hard of reading, and broke rules by nominating some who weren't CoS Members in Good Standing---which has led me to two of my least favorite emotions, the first being humiliation of myself, the second being the need of potentially humiliating someone else. This is not the fault of the nominated witches, and for that reason I will not publicly single anyone out…
