Like me you’ve probably seen that video (or read about it) of Sarah Palin getting spiritual protection by some church preacher from witches. Now I admit, on the face of it that’s pretty strange. But believing in witches is not nearly as strange, not nearly as bizarre as what Palin and Obama and McCain and Biden and Bush believe (or at lesat purport to believe). Namely this–they believe that some two thousand years ago a man (evidently not a warlock), born to a virgin mother, was removed from a Roman crucifixion cross and placed in a cave with a huge rock in front of it and then came back to life and rose up and revealed himself to his adoring followers and then rose into a place called Heaven. I don’t know about you, but somehow even a belief in witches makes a hell of a lot more sense than that bit of strange fantasy. But if they or anyone purports to be a real Christian, which I’ve heard these candidates say at various times, than that is exactly what you must believe (welcome to the supernatural club).
