Christine O'Donnell: 'I Dabbled in Witchcraft'
ABC news ^ | September 18 2010 | RYAN CREED

Posted on 09/18/2010 11:49:47 AM PDT by Michel12

Fresh off her victory in Delaware, GOP U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell is riding a wave of campaign cash but also internet infamy, thanks in part to her controversial statements -- most notably on masturbation -- in the late 1990s on Bill Maher's "Politically Incorrect." Christine O'Donnell says one of her first dates occurred on a satanic altar.

On Friday, Maher released on his new HBO show, "Real Time," an unaired clip of O'Donnell admitting to a brief dalliance with witchcraft.

I think Bill Maher personifies satan more than anyone I can think of.

O’Donnell admits that she is a Christian who has repented from past deeds, and it seems as though she has been sincere in that. The leftnuts will do everything to destroy her, but it is hard to pound a Christian with their past when they admit they were wrong and live a life that demonstrates their change. The lib whackos should do a little self reflection, and see how ridiculous they sound. ...Coons is more of the failed ideology that is destroying this country, costing jobs, creating poverty and making us prey to political and cultural predators. Even though the Democratic Party has veered so far to the radical left it views any moderation as impure politics, there are still plenty of Democrats who must know that ideologues like Coons are ruining their world. Christine can help stop that.

Does playing with a Ouija Board disqualify one for public office? My ex-wife was a witch...OK..maybe not technically, but I'm pretty sure she tried to poison me a couple of times.

"Stick a fork in her......"

37 posts before someone had either the courage, or the intellect to say what is plainly true. You don't dig out of a 12-point (at best) deficit by practicing the black arts. Just saying.

Just because O'Donnell was better than Castle, doesn't mean O'Donnell was a good choice. Sometimes in politics, there are bad candidates and horrible candidates. O'Donnell appears to be the later, not the former.

She didn’t say this recently. This is a clip from one of her many,many talking head panel appearances on cable over the years. This clip might be over a decade old.

Come on.

Powerline may not be a wonderful conservative source of material but how is name calling and deflecting from the issue of her character to the other’s character any different then what Castle or Coons are doing with this story.

People need to accept she is not that great of a candidate and she does have skeletons we wouldn’t ordiarily accept. I’m not saying Coons is better or we shouldn’t support her or that those on the right fixated with debating this after the primary is oer are right, but I would suggest instead of rushing to her defense over these stories that really can’t be defended...they be ignored and flip the cart to focus on Coons intentions, the economy and stuff like that. It’s the only shot she has at winning.

I also heard that she had a Ouija board, brought to a party one of those billiard balls that told you which course in life to take, and that she acted in the chorus of The Crucible about the Salem Witch Trials, demanding that the court accept spectral evidence of conjurin’. None of us “normal” people did anything like this, of course, we were just like the Lincolns (seances), Nancy Reagan (horoscopes to pick teh exact minute of Inauguration), Winston Churchill and FDR (use of clairvoyants as to when to begin D-Day), the CIA (experiments with remote viewing) and of all people, Bill Clinton, who told the Air Force to check on the veracity of the purported alien storage shed at Wright-Patterson.

- - - as opposed to incumbents who try to cover up their satinistic tendencies?

What is worse (1) some one who is curious about the occult in their early informative years or (2) some one who hides the fact that they avidly practice deceit and deception on a DAILY basis to fool others to do their bidding.

Agreed. Going forward, the movement ought to think long and hard about a simple litmus test for candidates such as, "Has this person ever held a real job?"

Let's pray that she doesn't become an a albatross around our necks.

This is RIDICULOUS.

Do any posters on this board remember 1994?

I don’t mean, do you remember that the GOP won. I mean, do you remember that time?

Newt Gingrich was brilliant. He soared to a stunning takeover of the Dem House, and the GOP suddenly was back in the game.

Then the left used their newly minted Saul Alinsky tactics on Newt. He might have been one of the first successful targets.

Thing is, it wouldn’t have worked, if OUR SIDE hadn’t turned on him - and if he hadn’t caved.

That combination of historic blunders, cost the GOP at least a decade, and has done inestimable harm to America.

Now, this absurd whining, is heading that very same direction.

STOP IT.

It’s stupid to tear down our own candidate.

Sheesh.

why are so many here, seemingly intent on LOSING.

You have got to be joking me.

That is the reason why republicans are natural born losers. We keep letting the democrats and their media whores establish standards for our own candidates that are absurd.

Look back on the republicans who have been hounded out of office by non-events. Not surprisingly, they are conservatives. McCain has more skeletons than a graveyard, but he gets a pass. Your average democrats bio reads like a rap sheet.

I refuse to take the bait on this one.

Her reply should be, "Yes, I did some foolish things when I was young. Anyone who will not admit to the same probably hasn't grown up yet. It's what you do and say after you grow up that's the important thing.

And I wish those who want to convince you that I'm not fit to represent Delaware would focus on the issues that are important to the people instead of what I said and did when I was seventeen. Unfortunately, they realize when it comes right down to it, my positions on the important issues facing our country resonate with the people who love America and are angry that this current crop of politicians in Washington seem to be working against their interests."

The Republican establishment is toast too. Either change to real conservatism or let the Dems have a permanent majority.

I will never vote for another RINO again. They simply will not get my vote. It’s that simple. I’d rather get stabbed in the front by a liberal than stabbed in the back by a RINO.

I forgot to add that not only is Wicca classified as a religion, but also because of that, there cannot be an issue of religion based on the ‘separation of Church and State.’

Besides, what else is Godlessness except the worship of self/ego. The I am God group should know well they are already servants of Satan, and so, Coons fits someone in the Devil’s ACTUAL, present service.

Demons do walk the earth. 1/3 of Heaven’s angels fell. Apparently, many fell here in the US.

Evil always attacks the good.
