The Burning Times

The insane Christian Holocaust of blood against humanity!

"Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live." 
Exodus, 22 : 18

"He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the Lord only, he shall be utterly destroyed." Exodus, 22 : 20

I hereby present a brief study of the murderous Church-based Holocaust against innocent people who were deemed Not Christian enough' for the over-enthusiastic ruling religious hierarchy during this infamous period in our history.

I offer this essential information is the name of honest debate and freedom of information.

Those who seek to bury the past are set to repeat it!

Today, Pagans and other unorthodox spiritual minorities are 'still' awaiting a genuine apology from contemporary Church leaders for the terrible and inhuman atrocities carried out by their overtly-zealous religious forefathers in the name of God!

How many victims did early Church authority actually manage to slaughter in the names of righteousness, salvation and faith?

The following information was accessed from the SAFF INFORMATION OFFICE

Figures are difficult. The Jews themselves reckon that nine million people (Jews, mentally insane, homosexuals, cripples, gypsies etc.,) perished during the Nazi Holocaust but historians have since estimated six million. That's still an awful lot of people but a three million discrepancy during a period when every person had a birth certificate and was tracked by the various states is quite a difference and shows the difficulty of estimating the effects of mass murder.

How much more difficult therefore is it to estimate executions in the 15th and 16th centuries when there was hardly any statistical bureaucracy available to confirm numbers killed and most documents which did have long-since rotted away, been mislaid or destroyed? In the first world war the British lost approximately 4 million combatants whilst the Germans lost about 3 Million - that's in direct hand-to-hand combat spanning four years with weapons of mass destruction (machine guns, mustard gas, tanks, mines, submarines, bombers, high explosives etc).

In the Second World war the combined deaths on both sides has been estimated at 5 million people, that's in six years. You have to keep in mind that the Burning Times occurred in batches lasting decades at a time and spanning nearly two hundred years, beginning with the Inquisition and upsurging again when the inventors of demonology made it a 'science' in the 16th century.

Of course plenty of people were killed randomly by ecclesiastical courts from 1254 onwards when Pope 'innocent' IV made it legal to accept allegations of witchcraft ‘without’ corroborative evidence.

It is impossible to get a final figure whichever way you look at it.

In his excellent Encyclopedia of Witchcraft, Russell Hope Robbins gives very quick comparative examples of executions for witchcraft. For example, just one Inquisitor at one place, Como in Italy, executed 1,000 'witches' in one year. As the craze spread like a disease from village to village the witch hunters would set up shop and burn as many from that village as possible. In three small villages situated near Cologne which had a combined population of 300 people, between 125 and 150 people were executed for 'witchcraft' in a five year period. That's nearly 50% of the population in a five year period and it wasn't unusual in Germany and France and Italy for the same to occur.

Obviously the main promoter of this constant long-term homicide were the parish priests whose loyalty to Mother Church was rated on how many 'witches' they rid the locality of. A month without any burnings could be seen as suspicious and cause the priest himself to be accused!

Accurate statistics based on documentary evidence are rare but Remy alone boasted that he had burned 900 people in a ten year period. Because the church required witch burnings to be an aversion entertainment the victims were not, unlike in the gas chambers, killed quickly en-mass. Every few days four or five victims would be publicly burned or hanged. Remember also that everyone who was executed went through the torture process first and this could take several days or more; so the 'ritual killing of witches' was a progressive event.

Consider also that, even in pitched battles between armies, there was no effective means of mass-destruction of human life at the time so wars were fought with considerably less dead resulting than would happen today, which makes the number of innocent victims in the Witch Hunts even more pertinent.

The witch-hunters could not speed up the process much, but imagine every small village burning six or so women every week for a decade and you begin to see how the big figures can build up.

Some CONSERVATIVE authorities claim that over 100,000 people were executed for witchcraft in Germany alone in one of the gluts of witch-mania which lasted perhaps 30 years.

There is a distinct possibility therefore that that figure could be multiplied by a factor of four and duplicated in all European countries to cover the two hundred years span of the burning times.

Additionally, many witch-hunters were in it purely for the cash and a large percentage of those accused and maimed in torture, gave up all they had in order to be released. The collateral damage of people who were completely broken in health and spirit and who died shortly afterwards but not included in the estimate of the number of those executed, is completely ignored by the 'academic historians'. 

Estimated 13 million dead with a minimum estimate of 4 million victims - thanks to evil Christian fundamentalist persecutions 

As is the many impromptu lynch-law executions of witches which occurred without any official church involvement as the craze took hold. As we have seen repeated today in the media's war against pedophiles, accusations of witchcraft by gossips often lead to vigilantes burning their houses down with the owners inside. Therefore a maximum estimate of 13 million dead and a minimum estimate of 4 million dead are probably as good as we are going to get.
However, in order to make sense of the killings and get a reliable idea of the social EFFECTS of the burning times we need to make a comparison not only with numbers but also with the size of the general population of the time and the logistical difficulty in killing so many people when methods of mass destruction were not available.

When you look at it this way, as a percentage of the general European population, FEWER people were killed in the world wars than were executed for witchcraft. Therefore, in order to convey the impact and the meaning of those Burning Times a claim of 13 million is a perfectly acceptable figure for us to use today in order to get people to understand the ramifications.

Any misled Pagan today who tries to invalidate or restructure those despicable acts of wholesale, religious-based, sectarian murder is not worthy to call their self Pagan.

Today’s follow-on from the Burning Times

I must say that the preposterous Christian falsehood about Pagan heritage being evil and unholy is still unfortunately being used by intolerant absolutist moralisers.

The previous Satanic Abuse fiascos in the UK that racked through Rochdale, Orkney, and Nottingham etc. were all inspired by the dangerous grossly distorted biblical thinking of religious activists, who couldn't find any satanic adversaries to uphold their Revelations-based, end-of-time style, messianic theocracy. Satan had to be found at any cost and to hell with the consequences to society!

Just as in the U.S.A. (where the Satanic myth originated), Satanic seminars were held in this country by well-financed activists to instruct Police, Social Workers, leading Children's Charities etc., to spot signs of so-called Satanic child abuse, signs such as: bed-wetting, aggressive behaviour, preoccupation with faeces/urine et al, all given as ‘firm’ evidence by experts of so-called Satanic involvement.

This would almost seem comical if it were not so very sad, the result of this avoidable hoax was millions of pounds/dollars worth of tax payers’ money needlessly squandered by authorities chasing nonexistent Satanic spectres, numerous innocent families subjected to Nazi-style dawn raids, terrified children psychologically traumatised following cruel interrogation by over-enthusiastic social workers.

The whole situation runs with very close parallels to the early Witch Hunt mania that blighted Europe and the British Isles for hundreds of years and killed an estimated thirteen million people – most of whom were not even Pagan at all.

Accusations by old-time Church inquisitors have been matched by present-day therapists, police and social workers who unfortunately followed advice from people who possessed the very same religious fervour of their latter day brethren.

Has our society learned from these shameful and highly avoidable actions (both ancient and more recent)? It is worth recalling that the U.K. Government-commissioned report on the subject of Satanic Abuse, by Professor Jean La Fontaine studied 84 cases of abuse and findings proved that without doubt the whole myth had been engineered and inspired by Evangelical Christians and radical social workers.

This wholesale victory for common-sense was widely reported in the British press. This would seem good news for all sane individuals everywhere - and it is.

The only trouble is that the populace has a very short memory and the religious groups/individuals that instigated the ludicrous Satanic Panic have now licked their wounds and continue to hold additional Satanic seminars.

So folks - can anyone be as unreservedly dim-witted as these people? Do they not realise the damage their unbalanced actions have done and may do so once again? Can society really once again turn a blind eye to these grinning wolves in sheep's clothing? Unfortunately the answer is probably ‘Yes!’

More dawn raids, more persecution of innocent contemporary Wiccans, Druids, Pagans and other nonconformist people; more damaged children/families, and more expensive social resources wasted on a preventable deception created by a prejudiced, but highly influential, religious minority who see satanic abuse around every corner.

The greatest ignominy remains that while society was easily hoodwinked into chasing imaginary satanic abusers, clergy abuse was (and still is) a documented reality with a plethora of available evidence.

The same perverted religious thinking that created the unspeakable Burning Times 'still' resides under the surface of so-called respectable society.

Fundamentalism of all kinds is a menace to humanity. Therefore, we would all do well to remain vigilant.

Another Southport Tory publicity stunt falls flat on its face – at 20 MPH…! 

Ainsdale Tories: misleading the Southport public over pollution/speed issue

The Southport press recently highlighted the controversial matter of 20 mph speed limits within the town.

Naturally there are arguments both for and against this divisive situation yet this is ‘not’ what I wish to focus on herein. I do however want to highlight the fact that an Ainsdale councillor made a public statement regarding pollution in relation to speed that is both incorrect and highly misleading.

Speaking on the issue of ‘alleged’ increased pollution, Councillor Ted Hartill stated:

“These zones have been rolled out over the whole country and there are thirty two million cars on UK roads right now. Many vehicles such as taxis, delivery vehicles and post vans will drive many miles each day within the 20mph zones. “However if we take a very low figure of each car travelling around three miles a day in the zones and multiply that by the number of cars on the road - then multiply that by three hundred and sixty five days a year, it adds up to a massive thirty five and a half billion extra minutes of travelling time per year. Are we the only ones who can see what a huge pollution issue this is?“

Sorry – you are dead wrong Ted, according to professional organisations who are diametrically opposed to your bogus claims!

The question arises, is Cllr Hartill aware that his totally ambiguous statement is not only erroneous but also very misleading?

He claims that a reduction in speed will ‘increase’ pollution, yet this is apparently ‘not’ the case according to motoring experts. 

When 30km/h (18.6 mph) zones were presented in Germany, car drivers changed gear 12% less often, braked 14% less often and required 12% less fuel. The choice of gear and driving style, ‘not’ the number on the speed limit sign are what typically affect fuel usage.

The Department for Transport (DfT ) guidance states. “Generally, driving more slowly at a steady pace saves fuel and carbon dioxide emissions, unless an unnecessarily low gear is used”

The AA’s report, ‘Fuel For Thought’ (Jan 2008) “accepts that targeted 20 mph speed limits in residential areas are popular and improve safety. Along shorter roads with junctions and roundabouts, limiting acceleration to up to 20 mph reduces fuel consumption."

So why exactly is Ted Hartill (backed of course by Cllr Terry Jones and fellow Tories) currently misleading the Southport Press and the town’s residents over the speed/pollution situation? 

Does Cllr Hartill not feel that proper research would be advisable BEFORE making unwise and misleading errors like this?

One would expect a little more professionalism from Conservative councillors surely, rather than badly screwed up publicity stunts to seek point-scoring public support…

Ainsdale Greenbelt – suspected outbreak of Myxomatosis

Today I was walking on the Ainsdale sand dunes, close to the old Lido site, when I spotted a rabbit with what looked like Myxomatosis symptoms.

It was apparently almost blind with very puffed up eyes. The poor creature was clearly distressed. I took a fast photo but the animal immediately staggered off into undergrowth.

I have witnessed rabbits with this horrible illness before in Yorkshire and it is a ghastly thing for them to catch, which may lead to a slow and painful death.

Pets Beware! 

If you have pet rabbits then it is strongly recommended that you are up to date with their vaccinations. See your vet for details.

The RSPCA say …

Rabbits need vaccinations to prevent/protect against myxomatosis and Rabbit (Viral) Haemorrhagic Disease (R(V)HD) which cause intense suffering to rabbits.

We strongly recommend vaccinating all rabbits.

• Single vaccines against myxomatosis and RHD cannot be given simultaneously. Myxomatosis boosters are needed every six months. Myxomatosis vaccinations from six weeks. RHD vaccinations at eight weeks.

• Combined vaccines offer annual protection against both diseases. Rabbits can be vaccinated from five weeks.

• Get veterinary advice about the most suitable vaccination course and best ages to vaccinate.

Prevent and Protect - keep your pets healthy...  

·         Give regular boosters throughout life, see your vet.
·         Controlling insects may reduce infection risk. Deter flies/mosquitoes e.g. insect-proof screens. Ensure your home and all pets are treated for fleas as advised by your vet. Fleas from cats infect rabbits.
·         Regularly clean/disinfect rabbits’ enclosure/areas rabbit’s access, using rabbit-safe disinfectant. Change bedding/litter regularly. Never use housing/bedding from rabbits infected/suspected to have/have had RHD/myxomatosis.
·         Prevent contact with wild/affected domestic rabbits or access to areas where they’ve been.

I have reported this situation to the authorities and urge others to do the same.

NB... Cllr Preece has reported this to Coast and Countryside immediately.

Last light over the River Alt Estuary 

A brief stroll against the brisk Alt Estuary winds produced some pleasing yacht-related images 

Here's a  short video that I shot of the sun set. As I zoom in, one can just about make out ships in the distance as they enter the River Mersey Estuary at Liverpool

People Power pays off 

Sandbrook Way Fences Project is almost completed 

It’s taken quite a long slog  but our pressure has paid off at last.

Subsequent to the last meeting between Woodvale’s Cath and Pat Regan with Ainsdale’s Cllr Haydn Preece and Richard Perrett of One Vision Housing (OVH), supplementary repairs were set in motion.

One Vision Housing has now repaired the derelict fences on Sandbrook Way precinct in Woodvale, with painting almost being finished.
