The Burning Twits Are Upon Us: More From the Wild Hunt

My recent comments on The Wild Hunt and in this blog have attracted a number of positive comments, but they've also attracted some criticism.  I figured this was as good a place as any to address some of the issues raised.

First we have a person who will remain anonymous, for reasons which will become clear later. In the Wild Hunt comments she stated:
Kenaz, when you've lived through a threat of being murdered and your house burned down as I have, get back to me about not calling these people terrorists. This particular group (Dominionists) ARE terrorists. They want to shove Jesus down our throats and they advocate violence to accomplish it. ANY GROUP that advocates violence is a terrorist, get it? 
I live in TN and some of these folks would gladly murder any non-Christian. They are called Christian Supremacists because that is what they openly advocate. But then you probably think Nazis weren't terrorists. I've followed this movement a long time, very closely and I don't think you understand what is happening.
A quick Google search on this person's posting name reveals her address, her workplace and all sorts of other personal information which a murderous Dominionist terrorist could use to find her.  She's apparently so frightened of these vicious Christian thugs that she feels the need to go public with her complaints - but not so frightened that she feels the need to take steps to protect herself.

At best this suggests that she's dangerously naive: at worst one might suspect that she was engaging in a bit of melodrama. (The latter becomes increasingly likely when one notes her ties to Witch School, an organization of which it has been said:
Because the Correllian tradition does not require an in-face meeting with individuals as part of the initiation process and ordination as clergy, there is no way for the Correllian tradition to maintain standards of who they initiate. Currently, the Correllian tradition has first degree clergy members that include at least one fish and a few dogs.(12) These are members in the same standing as anyone else who completes the first degree program. Yet, Ed Hubbard, CEO of WitchSchool has stated, "If you were investigating the Correllian tradition you would discover they have integrated record keeping and that they do this to create a clergy that is as ironclad as possible under American and International law."(13) I do not know of any other religion that ordains fish or dogs, however.
However, in an abundance of caution, I have refrained from posting her name. Given the danger (real or imagined) in which she lives, I can only recommend she show more caution in the future.  Perhaps she could buy a pit bull or a German Shepherd to protect herself: if all went well, she could even make it her High Priest and they could start a coven.

Then there's Charlton Hall, aka Chuck. Chuck is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, who states "My approach to therapy involves helping individuals and families to facilitate change through Mindfulness techniques in a non-judgmental, client-centered, positive environment."

Right, then.  Here's some mindfulness from Chuck:

To yrs. truly:
Kenaz...have you ever had friends and/or relatives murdered by Christian terrorists? I have. I know firsthand what they're capable of. Of course, if you support the murder of gays, doctors, etc. then perhaps you're part of the problem.
I agree, Kenneth. Apparently Kenaz doesn't think that torturing gay people to death, or shooting up Unitarian churches, or blowing up the Olympics, or bombing women's health clinics qualifies as terrorism. Which begs the question, what DOES qualify as terrorism where Kenaz is concerned?

I wonder if Kenaz would be okay with Christians beating one of his family members to death
It's pretty obvious, Kenaz, that you support terrorism as long as it's committed by Christians.
True, Anna. For example, Kenaz lives in New Jersey and has no idea what goes on here in the Bible Belt. I wonder how a transvestite would be received here in South Carolina? ;)
To Patheos managing editor Star Foster:
Star...I find it interesting that you de-friended me on Facebook for pointing out that while you complain about Jason's 'polemical' approach, Patheos has several evangelical Christians whose rhetoric is much worse than anything Jason's ever stated.

Apparently your 'tolerance' of other viewpoints doesn't extend to people who point out the double standard Patheos has.
LOL Star...yet Christian evangelicals preaching intolerance on Patheos doesn't bother you at all?
And the only person from the South who is trying to minimize my claims is Star Foster, from Atlanta...where a Christian terrorist bombed the Olympic games.Incidentally, Star just de-friended me on Facebook for pointing out that Christian evangelicals on Patheos are free to criticize Pagans to their heart's content, yet Jason was told to 'tone it down' when he used language that wasn't nearly as offensive.
Ahh, so it's okay for Kenaz to call people 'idiots' and to mock my gay cousin who was murdered, but when Kenaz refuses to acknowledge that such acts are the acts of a terrorist, I'm supposed to 'turn it down a notch.
Interesting...perhaps the Dominionists are right about some Pagans...
With this kind of butthurt, we can only hope that Mr. Hall finds a suitably sized tube of Preparation H before returning to cross swords with me, Star Foster, and Wild Hunt's other closet Dominionist supporters of Christian terrorism and gay-bashing.

More entertainment as it develops.
