And WHY is it always Florida??
The TLDR: a resort in Florida is hosting a Summer Solstice festival, and the zealots in their community are having a shit fit, insisting the city commission shut it down (never mind it's an event on private property)
Some highlights from the outraged citizens before the commission:
“I just found out about this today. I am disappointed in the city of Pahokee for allowing this group to come,” said Pastor Brad Smith, Florida Director of Kids for Christ. Smith called the event “an abomination”.
“We are opening ourselves up to things we should not, like belly dancing and magic spells,” said Daniel Mondragon. “We do not welcome these things. This is the first annual event, and it should be the last.”
“We cannot expect our city to survive and prosper if we allow these things,” said Pastor Eugene Babb, of Harlem Church of God.
“God cannot heal our land if we have witches and warlocks violating our community,” said Evangelist Lillian Brown, of Saints on the Move.
So what was that about Christians always being "bashed most"? I haven't seen anyone demanding their local city council shut down the KofC fish fry.Answer Question

“God cannot heal our land if we have witches and warlocks violating our community,
that's a knee slapper when talking about a Summer Solstice festival, and especially coming from a Christian. do they even know what the Summer Solstice is? a scientifically proven event of our planet, whereas their religion talks about praying to a higher power that doesn't even exist instead of getting off your ass and actually doing something about it- which, to me, seems far more 'imaginary' and 'magical' and 'whimsical' than the Summer Solstice.
