Martin Collins, reflecting upon President Grover Cleveland's approbation of the Statue of Liberty as our "peaceful deity—greater than all gods," views with alarm the Wiccan Community's current practice of praying to the Statue of Liberty, as the nature goddess who can inspire and liberate us from unjust oppression, especially God's 'oppressive law.' Michael Snyder, claiming that the Wiccan religion is the fastest growing religion in America, with over 3,000,000internet subscribers, describes this phenomenon as the revival of Babylonian sex worship, involving Ishtar, Athena, Minerva, Semiramis, Isis, and the queen of heaven. The proponents of the Wiccan culture desire to end denominationalism by: "cross pollinating" with morally decaying traditional denominations, syncretizing God's true doctrines, such as anointing, laying on of hands and promising forgiveness of sins with such filthy acts as "liberating" sexual intercourse with temple priestesses. One 'Christian' denomination has embraced Ishtarism, encouraging the end of monogamous relationships. The Federal Courts, while they abhor any displays of God's Ten Commandments, have no problems with the many varieties of Ishtar murals and statues in Federal and state capitols. The revival of Babylonian mystery religion will not bring America liberty, but instead grievous bondage to sin. God's called-out ones must wash their hands of this filthiness and embrace God's Law, looking forward to the return of Jesus Christ, the true Liberator.
Charles Whitaker, focusing on May Day, a Celtic and Germanic witches Sabbath (Walpurgisnacht), suggests that May Day has become a cardinal day for worshipping demons and the greenery of the earth. May Day is a confrontation with God's way of life. May Day, long the premier day of the Soviet Union, a day the armaments would be paraded and sabers rattled, has now turned into an International Socialist Workers Day. The socialists may well push this confrontational day into the forefront, worshipping Gaia (mother earth) and fertility (environmental protectionism) and redistributive socialism. May Day connects the sexual fertility of Babylon with the modern neo-Pagan environmentalist protective, International Communism. Satan has cleverly crafted eight pagan holidays (the Wheel of the year- worshiping mother nature) to displace God's Holy Days, substituting a time of completion with a time of new beginnings, celebrating a new world order, a neo-Pagan worship of environment and mother earth or the concept of fertility, a witches Sabbath without the need for a Creator.
Halloween has seen a recent surge in popularity, now ranking second only to Christmas in retail sales. There is no doubt, however, that Halloween should never be celebrated by true Christians. Not only is it pagan in origin and practice, but it also promotes self-indulgence, deception, and other ungodly behaviors. Far from being a harmless holiday, Halloween has the potential to destroy our relationship with God.
