Pagan band demands "quiet area for fornication"

Pagan band demands 'quiet area for sex'

A pagan rock band is demanding a "quiet area for fornication" during a summer solstice celebration in Birmingham.

The event, billed as a family fun day out, has been condemned by the Church of England, reports the Birmingham Evening Mail.

Headliners Inkubus Sukkubus demanded the "fornicatorium" at the event, which is being held to mark the longest day of the year.

Managers at the Custard Factory venue confirmed a quiet area would be provided for the group, fronted by female vocalist Candia.

A spokesman said: "They said they needed a quiet fornicatorium. They say it is a fertility rite. The singer goes into a trance-like state. We don't quite know what will happen once the frenzied activity begins."

Druids from across the country will descend on the Custard Factory for the celebration, which is billed as a perfect day out for the whole family, on Saturday.

Rhiannon Biddulph, of the UK Pagan Association, said: "There are certain festivals were we celebrate the creation of life where you have to have sex. Most pagans have a fairly relaxed attitude to sex."

But a spokesman for the Church of England in Birmingham said: "It seems the Druids have overdosed on the magic mushrooms when arranging this event. It beggars belief that this kind of tackiness and tawdriness is being promoted as a cultural family event."

Is this in the next Harry Potter movie?

Couldn't the same be said about some of the liberalised policies of the Church of England (so-called)?

The event ... has been condemned by the Church of England

But merely on grounds of bad taste and bad form. They apparently have absolutely no moral objections.

Looks like it's not just gays at the park you have to worry about. Better get your placards and hop a flight to England.

I tried to negotiate a fornicatorium into my last job offer. They got a good chuckle out of it.....then they pulled the offer.

Some people have no sense of humor...

Imagine the Christian church taking on that atittude. No wonder the Church has so many hang-ups concerning sex. It is trying to distance itself from Paganism.

Sex is baaaad for your soooouuul. ;)

This is incredibly ambiguous and bad writing. Is Candia fronting for the managers at the Custard Factory? Is she fronting for the quiet area? Is she fronting for the band?

If the celebration is a success, I wonder if other businesses will want to follow the Custard Factory's example and set up a fornicatorium for workers and guests.

Also I wonder if the Custard Factor will continue to manufacture custard on that Saturday, or will they give their employees the day off to enjoy the celebration. It seems that the music and fornication and all, not to mention all the guests, would prove distracting. It's a shame the Solstice didn't fall on a Sunday.

For some reason using the words "custard" and "fornication" in the same sentence really disgusts me.

This "tent" will be a smelly, nasty disease pit. Yuck.

What's the chances that the video of this event won't wind up on the internet? They will most likely be proud to document the proceedings on some Druid website.

I suppose they have equally relaxed attitudes about STDs.

And look at the trouble that caused. Just look at the Middle East to witness the ongoing consequence of sin.

Oh, for the love of Mike. Harry Potter has absolutely nothing to do with it.

If you'd actually READ the books, you'd know that witchcraft is genetic. If you're not born with it, you cannot acquire it.

If the Potter books are responsible for a rise in anything, it's unsuccessful witchcraft.

How stupid do you think kids are, anyway? After four or five incantations don't work, they're gonna give up.

I cannot believe I have to explain this.

Liberals cannot possibly have moral objections to anything, as that would be forcing one's belief on another.

Unless of course, those objections are to having your children being force-fed the homosexual agenda in schools. It's immoral to oppose that.

ROTFLMAO--I can tell you're a Christian by your charity (love) /extreme sarcasm

you, my friend, are wound much too tight. Read the book of Esther to see how a concubine (prostitute) saved the Jews.

The sin please? i.e., who committed the sin Sarai, Abraham or the nursemaid? and which sin is worse? Fornicating or killing the product of the fornication? If pharisees like yourself would be more accepting of the Mary Magdalene's of the world abortion would never be an issue.

I suppose you believe that all Arabs (sons of Abraham thru the handmaid) are the "ongoing consequence of sin."

We're all sinners--why not try a little forgiveness instead of blaming the problems of the Middle East on a little lovin'.

What, a motel that charges by the hour isn't good enough for them?????

Oh, it's some sort of "fertility rite", so where they shag makes a difference, or else the crops won't grow or something....

Pardon me while I laugh my a$$ off.

We recently remodeled our house and I asked for the same thing. My wife didn't exactly like the idea and decided on a sewing room.

Your Nordic roots today push out fruit of extreme socialism from Scandinavia to Minnesota.

I wish your Nordic roots were still roasting the occasional Christian monk. You would be far less destructive to society as a whole.

which sin is worse? Fornicating or killing the product of the fornication?

Both. Sin is separation from God. All sin is equally repugnant to him.

If pharisees like yourself

That's true and why I need Jesus.

would be more accepting of the Mary Magdalene's of the world abortion would never be an issue.

I think you do not understand the heart of man. Abortion will always be an issue as long as man insists on doing his own will apart from God.

you believe that all Arabs (sons of Abraham thru the handmaid) are the "ongoing consequence of sin."

Yes.

We're all sinners

Absolutely.

why not try a little forgiveness

I do on a daily basis because I have to. Jesus forgives me daily and asks that I do the same.

instead of blaming the problems of the Middle East on a little lovin'.

This involved no "lovin'". It was Abraham taking matters in his own hands because he didn't trust God to fulfill His word. Plain and simple.

Judaic law held that life began and ended with the first breath. There are several instances in the Bible where God commands the "ripping up" of pregnant women who God took a disliking to.

Get your story straight.
