    Brazilian TV station dubs Stones frontman 'the biggest jinx in history' after he attended the match Mick Jagger has been blamed by a Brazilian TV station for Brazil’s record-breaking 7-1 World Cup semi-final defeat by Germany yesterday (July 8). Jagger has endured a six-game losing streak at the World Cup since 2010, by publicly endorsing countries who promptly lose. It even led to Brazil fans dressing cut-outs of The Rolling Stones singer in the colours of Chile and Colombia before their victories over those countries. But they lost when Jagger and his son Lucas attended the Germany game in Belo...

    Here in Holy Week we ponder the events that led to Jesus’ death and resurrection. Among the things to ponder is a dramatic moment in the trial before Pilate when the people who were present  utter a curse upon themselves. We read of it in Matthew’s Gospel: When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I am innocent of this man’s blood,” he said. “It is your responsibility!” And all the people answered, “His blood be on us and on our...

    A 1,700-year-old lead tablet with a violent curse inscribed upon it has been discovered by archaeologists in Jerusalem. Found in a wrecked Roman villa, the 'magical tablet' is thought to have been created by a magician. The curse, written in Greek, which calls for help from six gods to punish a man called Iennys, is believed to play a role in a bitter legal dispute and was ordered by a woman named Kyrilla...'While the words might be purely metaphorical, it seems more likely that Kyrilla actually used a hammer and nail(s) while carrying out a magical rite designed to enhance...

"WTF is up with that?", I asked my wife. I'd never seen them before. Or at least never noticed them before.Is this something to force Spanish on the country as a co-equal or superior national tongue? In Ohio? My wife, sweet person that she is, at first tried to ignore me. Just let me enjoy the game, she said. But I...

Entsminger, a Browns fan who died at the age of 55 on July 4. Entsminger "was an accomplished musician, loved playing the guitar and was a member of the Old Fogies Band." He was also, per his obituary in the Columbus Dispatch, a "lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder." The deceased wasn't just your average Browns fan: He apparently wrote a song each year about the Browns, which he...

    The second-term curse goes like this: A president (e.g., Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and so on) wins reelection, but then his presidency implodes over the next four years — mired in scandals or disasters such as Watergate, Iran-Contra, Monica Lewinsky, the Iraqi insurgency, and Hurricane Katrina. Apparently, like tragic Greek heroes, administrations grow arrogant after their reelection wins. They believe that they are invincible and that their public approval is permanent rather than fickle. The result is that Nemesis zeroes in on their fatal conceit and with a boom corrects their hubris. Or is the...

    What the Secret Service could learn from drunken sailors Roberto Loiederman, a merchant seaman from 1966 to 1974, is a writer in California. He co-authored “The Eagle Mutiny,” an account of the 1970 mutiny on a U.S. vessel. What happened in Cartagena, Colombia, with the Secret Service seems unsavory to me, but not for the reasons you might think. I make no judgments about men spending a night with escorts. As far as I’m concerned, those who take a holier-than-thou attitude about this are like Inspector Renault in “Casablanca” when he says he’s “shocked, shocked” to discover there is gambling...

    A vegetable seller named Babylas was the target of an alarming curse nearly 2,000 years ago. Written on a lead tablet found in Antioch, one of the largest cities in the Roman Empire, the curse calls on the gods to tie up the hapless greengrocer, then “drown and chill” his soul. The curse is described in the German journal Zeitschrift für Papyrologie und Epigraphik by Alexander Hollmann, a classicist at the University of Washington who studies Greek and Roman magic.

    The NBA doesn’t condone fans cursing at opposing players during games. But apparently, there’s nothing to prevent a fan from trying to place a curse on the opponents. Scores of Heat fans have been buying vodou- or santeria-type dolls at a store in West Miami-Dade that specializes in religious statues, powders, incense and small animals. (snip) “It is only for positive things,” he stressed — although, truth be told, if a purchaser thought they could use the dolls to bring misfortune to bear on the Mavs, Hernandez would be in no position to stop it.

    Roman Catholicism may be the nominal faith in Haiti but voodoo is the true national religion. Closely related to this is the common practice of santeria, animal sacrifice. The most egregious African superstitions have merged with a superficial and distorted version of Christianity to produce a primordial blend of arrant nonsense that has created a cult of barbarism. Haiti is not the most impoverished and backward nation in the Western hemisphere simply by happenstance. It remains, as it always has, beyond the pale of civilization. And all the romanticizing of the Haitian people by the MSM won't change that reality.

    Excerpt - PORT-AU-PRINCE (AFP) — In a Haitian dance hall transformed into a temple, dozens of voodoo practitioners dressed all in white, scarves around their necks in red, yellow or green, came Friday to pay homage to their first-ever "supreme master". "Open the barriers," a sole voice intoned in Creole. "The master has arrive," answered the crowd of men and women, as they rose to greet Max Beauvoir, 72. Until recently, the priests of voodoo, the heavily spirit-focused, African-rooted belief of many Haitians, operated autonomously without a formal hierarchy or rules. But through the associations of followers, they decided to...

    Are witch-doctors still part of the anecdotal, primitive folk-lore of Africa? Yes, they are. The witch-doctor, however, does not feature in the safari package; he is still a nasty reality, who holds many people helpless in his “supernatural” grip. His “shrine” isn’t to be seen in the picture post-cards; it is hidden in the forest. His rags, shaggy hair and paraphernalia have not started a fashion craze; they are dirty and ugly. Yet, he is feared. The Ugandan government, according to a recent BBC report, is worried about the increase of witch-craft, witch-doctors, and, consequently, the human sacrifices, especially children....

    By my lights, this stuff is funny and should earn the guy some votes. But there are those who, I am sure, will think less of Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo (D-Ky.) for it. Danny has apparently had enough of the campaign. He starts out ripping the current governor, Steve Beshear, a fellow Democrat, and then really tells us how he feels.

    Marcus J. Suhn yelled a stream of profanities beginning with "F*cking cop" on the sidewalk at 2 a.m. after the bars closed on Sept. 2, 2007, as two police officers were riding down the street in their patrol car. One officer heard Suhn, got out of his patrol car, arrested him and charged him with disorderly conduct. A lower court said the arrest was OK because Suhn's words were a form of "fighting words." The South Dakota Supremes disagreed:

    High voodoo priestess George Ann Mills prays the gods will cleanse a Georgia woman who she says asked her to perform a death ritual on a political opponent. Cobb County, Ga., Commissioner Annette Kesting asked Mills to cause the death of longtime political rival Woody Thompson, Cobb County police said. Mills, who lives in the Blythewood area, refused to perform the “death ritual” but did perform others intended to help Kesting’s family and financial situation, she said. After checks for payment she received from Kesting bounced, Mills reported the incident to Cobb County police, she said. But she has asked...

    Contemporary Christians refer to Jesus in many ways. We hear folks say he is their Lord, Savior, Master, Friend, even the ever popular “personal Lord and Savior”. However, when is the last time you have heard Jesus referred to as “my curse”? But yet that is exactly what Galatians 3 says: Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us- for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”- Galatians 3:13 Humanity has a colossal problem. It has been cursed. To make matters worse the One who has issued said...
