Witchcraft Shop Refuses To Sell Wands To Harry Potter Fans

Harry-Potter-Wand1

(PCM) Not sure exactly how one witchcraft shop in Great Britain is able to accurately spot a Harry Potter fan, however they claim they can sense one just by the aura and wants no part of them shopping in their store.

Mystical Moments crafts gorgeous handmade wooden wands for witches, warlocks and wizards, however if you are a Harry Potter fan you can forget about it!  The store refuses to sell any wands to fans of the hit book/film franchise written by author J.K. Rowling.

The store owner claims that while Rowling did, indeed, do her research, Harry Potter is for children and has done nothing for his business overall. The store owner told the Telegraph, “I don’t have customers who have been Harry Potterfied. If I had someone come in wanting a wand just because they liked Harry Potter I wouldn’t sell them one, no matter how much money they were offering.”

When used correctly wands can be used as a tool to draw a protective circle around witches to assist with curing various ills and of course make wishes come true. All you truly need is faith in whichever product you choose to have it work wonders for you, except if you are a fan of Harry Potter. In that case, you are totally on your own!

This definitely shows quite a bit of discrimination against Harry Potter fans by Mystical Moments and many fans feel that it is not even legal for a shop to refuse to sell an item to a specific group of people. Do we smell a lawsuit brewing?

After School Satan Club Coming To An Elementary School Near You?

After-School-Satan

(PCM) A group of leaders from the Satanic Temple have revealed plans to spread their message to public elementary school students across the country. They feel that because many Christian groups have after school religious programs for students, they feel they want to give students a choice between either Jesus or Satan. Something tells us, this is never going to fly!

The group’s video promoting the after-school Satan Club is almost comical as it almost resembles a horror-film trailer mashed up with some kind of sketch comedy skit.  In a recent interview the Satanic Temple’s co-founder Doug Mesner says “It’s critical that children understand that there are multiple perspectives on all issues, and that they have a choice in how they think.”

The Satanic Temple is urging public school officials to allow them to begin the introduction of the After School Satan Club as soon as the new school year begins. Chapter heads from Utah, New York, Boston and Arizona were in Salem, Massachusetts back in early July to talk strategy, with others from Minneapolis, Detroit, San Jose, New Orleans, Pittsburgh and Florida participating online.

There is even a website dedicated to the cause which can be viewed here!

The group does however want people who opposed their plan to understand one thing. They are not about promoting any type of worship to the devil. They are instead committed to the view that scientific rationality provides the best measure of reality. They do not believe or endorse any type of supernatural elements or beings that many religions refer to as Satan, Lucifer or any other name.

The purpose of the After School Satan Club would be to teach children about developing reasoning and social skills. Meetings will include a healthy snack, literature lesson, creative learning activities, a science lesson, puzzle solving and an art project. Every child will receive a membership card and must have a signed parental permission slip for a parent or responsible adult  to attend.

While the presence of a religious organization in public schools will no doubt be shocking to some, primarily the Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) represented by lawyers from the Liberty Counsel, they have solidly established the legal rights of religious organizations to operate clubs in public schools.

According to the CEF website, “[…] the United States Supreme Court ruled that a public school which allows use of its facilities to secular groups may not discriminate against religious groups.” And now that the CEF has established its Bible-based Good News Clubs across the nation, The Satanic Temple are eager to offer their own after school clubs, which will focus upon “critical reasoning, independent-thinking, fun, and freethought.”

What do you think about the groups proposition?  Would you allow your child to attend?

Busy Priest Leaves A Note Requesting Parishioners Make Their Confessions Brief

Confession-sign

(PCM) Even those who have dedicated their lives to the church get busy sometimes! This was exactly the case with the priest who hilariously left a note for parishioners to keep their confessions brief and to the point due to being the priest on duty that evening.

There must have been an over abundance of confessions in this particular church to even spark the need to write such a note in the first place. The priest wanted to make sure that everyone had their fair chance at confession and penance. He probably could have added to the note to skip the confession all together and just say four Hail Mary’s!

The priests note read as follows: “Confession today (Saturday) will be until exactly 5:30pm. There is only one priest available for confession today. Make your confession direct to the point and confess only your sins and offenses. No need to explain why you did it. Thank you very much!”

Apparently, mass being delayed due to an overabundance of confessions on Saturdays is a pretty common problem at various churches, so this particular priest made the decision to take matters into his own hands and solve the issue at hand.

Soldier Discovers A Terrifying Note On His Car Windshield Covering Every Major Conspiracy Theory!

(PCM) A soldier, who was on drill, made a terrifying discovery upon returning to his vehicle when he found a note tucked under his windshield wiper that referenced just about every conspiracy theory and included a folded one dollar bill.

The solider shared the quite lengthy note on Reddit,as it certainly made him a bit nervous. The note referenced major fears of the new world order claiming that President Obama and Pope Francis are “the end” and of course, no conspiracy rant would be complete without a mention of the mysterious Illuminati, hence the inclusion of the dollar bill. The note writer claims that many including Hollywood, NASA and more follow the “pyramid and the owl”.

The note goes on to claim that the earth may indeed be flat and surprising claims that aliens in fact do not exist!  You can check out the full note, in all it’s glory below:

Image Of Satan Discovered In A Cut Of Beef

Devil-beef

(PCM) The Mexican news outlet El Metichon has posted an image of what appears to be the likeness of Satan etched onto a large slice of beef. The meat was discovered near the area of Baja California Sur and is thought to have come from the country’s largest meat processor SuKarne.

Sources are unsure whether or not the meat has yet to be eaten or sold, however many that have commented on the image are offering up a hefty sum of money to taste test the devilish meat. The photo has of course gone viral and some are even urging the meat processing plant to send the cut of beef directly to the Vatican to be exorcised! Others are jokingly saying that the meat is a cut from the Chupacabra itself.

Would you decide to take a  taste the devil’s beef?

Harry Houdini Born March 24, 1874

Harry-Houdini_Water-TortureHarry Houdini AKA Erik Weisz was born on March 24, 1874 in Budapest Hungary.  His parents were Mayer Samuel Weiss a rabbinical lawyer and Cecilia Sterner.  Erik was the fourth of seven children.  The family moved to the United States in 1878 and settled in Appleton Wisconsin where his father got work as a Rabbi.

The position of Rabbi would not last long and the family found themselves living in poverty in Milwaukee.  At this time Erik whose first name would slowly change to Harry ran away from home.  He changed his last name to White and was trying to make it to Galveston Texas.  This however did not occur and the family had again moved, this time to New York, Harry would soon join them there.

In New York, Harry’s father found work on a sawing bench, Harry was working as a tie cutter and was now in his teens.  It was during this time that Harry read the Memoirs of Robert Houdin, a famous French magician.  Harry became fascinated with the working of illusion and a dream began.

Harry soon adapted a stage name by adding an I to Houdin and Harry Houdini was born.

Harry’s first act was that of a team called The Brothers Houdini, but this was not actually the case.  He performed the act with a co worker by the name of Jacob Hyman.  The crowd pleaser of the act was The Metamorphosis.  This was a substitution trunk trick which supposedly csat Harry $25.00.  Hyman was soon replaced by Harry’s real brother Theo, who was nick named Dash.

The real Houdini Brothers then began to perform in a number of venues including the midway of The Columbia Exposition in 1893 and Coney Island.  It was in Coney Island that Harry would meet Bess Rahner, a showgirl in an act called The Floral Sisters.  After a brief three week courtship the couple was married much to the dismay of Bess’s family who were Catholic.

The act was now renamed The Houdini’s and Bess and Harry traveled the country getting any work they could.  They would, of course, do the standard act that Harry had created, but they also worked in other show business venues including doing comedy sketches and card tricks.  Harry even masqueraded as Projea The Wild Man of Mexico in a circus sideshow.

In 1899 Harry was seen by Martin Beck, A Vaudeville great.  Beck told Harry to get rid of the magic act part of his performance and start concentrating on The Metamorphosis and Harry’s handcuff escapes which had become a staple of the act by this time.  Harry took the advice and Beck booked Harry in his circuit of theaters in the west.  Harry soon began to promote his act by escaping the handcuffs in local jails using actual police cuffs.  This gave Harry plenty of press coverage and insured an audience for his shows.

Soon Beck booked Harry for a tour of Europe, but when the Houdini’s reached London they found that the bookings had not actually been secured.  So, Harry came up with a plan and ended up escaping handcuffs at the great Scotland Yard.  The European act was then insured complete success

Returning to The United States Harry quickly went to work to secure his fame in his adapted country.  He was invited to escape from the infamous Murderers Row after he had had successfully escaped from the cells of many other prisons.  The prison was along the eastern branch of the Potomac River in Washington and the cell Harry would escape from once held the man who had assassinated President James Garfield.  Harry did not only escape the cell, he also rearranged all the other prisoners in the wing, moving them from one cell to another.

According To John Cox, “Now it wasn’t just handcuffs that harry could be challenged with.  It was anything man could devise.  He freed himself from government mail bags, a giant football, riveted boilers, packing crates, a convict ship, and an iron maiden.  In New York he escaped from a packing crate after it was nailed shut, and dropped into a river.  He would later escape from a straightjacket while suspended by his ankles 100s of feet in the air.  All of his outdoor escapes drew tens of thousands of spectators.  Before long, Houdini was the highest paid entertained in Vaudeville”

Harry’s working life continued to be along the lines of escape artistry and magic, but his personal life took a different turn.  In the early part of the twentieth century, society had become much involved in what is known as spiritualism.  Spiritualism allowed you to connect to the world of the dead through a medium.  Harry had worked much of his life around circus people and magicians and he knew most of this was fakery.  He set out to debunk the whole thing.  And he had great success, exposing some of the most notable mediums of the time.

Harry at one time became great friends with the author of The Sherlock Holmes series of books and stories, Arthur Conan Doyle.  The friendship was strained however as Doyle believed in spiritualism and Harry did not.  One has to ask, what Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes would think of his creator’s beliefs.

Houdini would go on to perform many other escapes even going so far as to allow himself to be buried in a coffin under a tone of sand.  In 1926 Houdini was performing in Montreal Canada.  A college student entered his dressing room and, believing that Harry could with stand any blow to his stomach. the student struck him several times.  Harry ignored the pain and went on stage and then with a fever well over a hundred degrees Harry went to perform in Detroit Michigan.  It was there with a fever of 104 degrees that Harry gave in and went to the hospital.

At the hospital it was discovered that his appendix had ruptured and he had appendicitis, after a second operation to save him Harry Houdini died on Halloween 1926.  His last words were reported as being “I’m tired of fighting.”
