Ms. O'Donnell, may I see you in the kitchen, please?

First of all, if you haven't seen it, yet:

Second of all, write to her. Let's make the best use of this recent slander against our community. If we could get one of the Tea Party Members to publicly acknowledge us as NOT being affiliated with Satan worship, it would do so much good for us.

If you write to her, be nice or we'll get ignored. http://christine2010.com/contact/ The phone number to her campaign office is here: (302) 468-7010

Here's what I wrote:

Dear Ms. O'Donnell,

Congratulations on winning the Delaware Republican Nominee for the U.S. Senate seat. Although our politics may differ, I commend you for your hard work and dedication to your cause.

My name is Courtney Weber. I am an ordained minister in the Wiccan community and therefore, a practioner of Witchcraft. I am also a Masters of Divinity candidate at Union Theological Seminary--a seminary which has trained many of the finest theologians in our country's history. I have trained under the guidance of several of the most respected Witches in the world. The information you presented regarding Witchcraft on "Politically Incorrect" in 1999 was absolutely incorrect and unfortunately misguided. Witches do not acknowledge the existence of Satan and therefore, do not worship such a being. I have traveled the world in my study of the Craft and have never met or heard of a Witch who would leave blood on their personal altar or have anything to do with the concept of Satan.

What you experienced in your past was not--I repeat, NOT--Witchcraft. You were severely misinformed and it is my hope that in the years that have passed you have been better educated on the religious beliefs of Wiccans.

You live in a state with one of the largest Wiccan populations on the Eastern seaboard. If you desire the support of the majority of your state at the ballot box, you will apologize to the the national and global Wiccan communities.

Very truly yours,
Rev. Courtney Weber
