Among the services offered, according to the Web site, are “intuitive guidance, past-life regression, spirit guide communication and healing and cleansing.”

The Democrat Party, bringing Satanism, Paganism, and the Occult to a community near you!

I liked this:

Among the services offered [by the company run by the Dem couple], according to the Web site, are “intuitive guidance, past-life regression, spirit guide communication and healing and cleansing.”

So depriving someone of food and water is illegal and immoral. Who knew?

Here’s their self-published bio’s, from their very own Satanic / New Age Cult Web Page:

http://www.theindigodawn.com/Indigo_Dawn/Who_We_Are.html

Joy Johnson has been a political, peace and social activist since her early teens. She has devoted her life to peace activism and searching for proactive means to bring about world peace.

As a child, Joy had many spiritual experiences and always felt she was never alone due to the presence of spirit guides. As a teenager, she spent much of her time studying various religions, yet none of them felt right to her. After traveling to Iraq on a peace mission, she became more and more drawn to the spiritual energy surrounding her. The Indigo Dawn started as a vision during a meditation where she was clearly shown the enlightenment glyph and given the name Indigo Dawn. She decided to explore the New Age community more, and after taking a course in Reiki healing, experiencing past life regression along with direct guidance from her spirit guides, she confirmed that her destiny was to help bring about the New Age on Earth. Joy shared her vision with her husband, Joe; as a result The Indigo Dawn was founded to raise the vibration of energy on Earth.

In 2000, Joy graduated from Cornell University, obtaining a B.S. in Human Biology, Health and Society. Joy was born in Fayetteville, N.C., and grew up in Raleigh, N.C., where she attended Millbrook High School. In high school, she revived the N.C. Association of Teen Democrats after it had been dormant for 10 years and served as president for two years.

Joy serves as president of the United Nations Association of Wake County. She is currently third vice chair of the Durham County Democratic Party as well as vice president of the Young Democrats in Durham County. She is also a member of the Human Relations Commission of Durham, N.C.

Joy has traveled to Israel/Palestine with the Israeli Committee against House Demolitions to witness the conflict between Israel and Palestine on the ground. Before the 2003 war, Joy traveled to Iraq with the Christian Peacemaker Team to put a human face on the situation and to share with Americans the truth about the effect of the Gulf War and the imposed sanctions on the Iraqi people. Meanwhile, she speaks about her experience in the Middle East on a regular basis to any interested groups.

Rev. Joseph Craig has always seen the world through different eyes. He has known since a very young age that things were not as simple as those around him would like to suggest. By the age of 6 without even knowing the term for it, Joseph knew that this was not the first time he had walked the face of the earth. This level of understanding and reason is something that has continued throughout his life.

Joseph was always fascinated with magick and anything related to the topic. It was not until he reached the age of 14 that he came to the understanding that magick was real. This opened his eyes and his mind to the world as it really is. Everything that he knew without reason or explanation all of a sudden became clear. This started his study of self and his study of the occult.

A devout student of magick and of self-discovery, Joseph has turned the page and is teaching that which he understands and knows to others. Finally finding his true calling, he has pushed others to a level of understanding and reason far beyond what they currently were. Do not judge this young man by his age, for his soul goes far beyond this. Always a student, even as a teacher, he seeks to further his understanding and grasp those unseen threads.

From another article......According to published and broadcast reports, prosecutors said a man and a woman met Craig through a shared interest in Satan worship, although the couple never consented to any physical abuse.

See, who says the left isn’t religious? Satanism is historically more ritualistic than a true belief, however (except for the most fanatical I suppose). It represents opposition to the established order, going back to the black masses of the middle ages. And leftism, by comparison, represents a political faction seeking change. The two actually fit well together.

It’s nice to see the Duke lacrosse case cited in defense of these freaks. I guess the Dems are expecting mobs of townfolk with torches.

Confirms our suspicions about liberal Democrats all along.

Now their enthusiasm for killing the unborn comes into context.

What would be the real difference between a regular atheist, secular humanist liberal and a full-blown ritual Satanist, devil-worshipping Democratic Party official?

According to local sources, they made no endorsement, but most of the people at the meetings had Obama stickers.

Should go well with the monkey-god idol story. Obviously, the Devil knows something about Obama he likes.

Man really can’t live without some form of religion, and the Left is really only against Christianity, which they will replace with Satanism, or some other false religion, such as the idolatrous worship of their murderous Great Leaders (”cults of personality”). Stalin, Mao, Kim Jong Il—all were deified.

Most leftist religions are merely facades, anyway, used to mask their real intent. Rev. Wright’s Marxism is well camoflauged to anyone who can’t see past appearances. Sananism, now, that’s the inner layer. Since it obviously doesn’t serve as sheep’s clothing, it must be a true belief. I still suspect that atheists, the real rabid ones associated with liberalism, are just closet pagans and Satanists.

I am going to spend the weekend with my Catholic (and very Democrat) father in law. I just might print this out (he believes that a Catholic can not vote for anything other than the Dem candidate).

My mother in law has been working on him for 20 years, so this might help.

Shouldn't be a problem then. A few quick hand passes and a abberkadabber or two and he'll be outta there. Ya can't keep a good warlock down...
