JUDGMENT DAY XXI: The Return of Judgment Day

(Sequel to "Judgment Day XX: Here It Is Again (and THIS TIME It's for REAL, We Promise")

May 21, 2011 Judgment Day

It's the same old bullshit since the day anyone walked around claiming to be a prophet: follow some jokester, swallow his bull hook, line, and sinker, give him all your money, sell everything you own, leave your families, and tell everyone the world is coming to an end. When will people learn? Is it self-loathing that turns them against this world, their loved ones, and themselves? What kind of escapist fantasy nightmare are they giving themselves over to, and for what? How does this contrast with the pagan worldview?

Luckylicious talks about loony fundamentalist fringe-heads and acknowledges there's more to be learned from their behavior than you might realize at first. Also in this very special episode Lucky interviews the very talented artist and witch, Silkie Lyrazel, high priestess of the Grailwood Coven in New York City. Silkie shares her insights into the Faerie Tradition, bardic work, ritual drama, living with familiars, staying attuned to nature and the realm of Faerie, and even dishes on True Blood and her vampire/goth fascination. Silkie and Lucky talk about ethical living and how pagans can walk the talk a bit more, as well as take pride in our convictions and stand up for ourselves in the face of persecution, discrimination, and threats of physical violence.

Recorded April 3, 2011 and May 21, 2011 ++ Published May 21, 2011
