It probably wouldn't surprise anyone if Utah went next, but it was Idaho this week. The Mormon legislature in Utah is probably holding back because the Church is still smarting from its intrusion last year into Prop8 in California. And because of Romney and Huntsman.

Wow! You certainly have identified the beast in no uncertain terms, Mr. Mannion. I applaud your perceptiveness and your willingness to shine a bright light on the repulsiveness that defines the Republican Party. As a Canadian I can only watch in horror and sadness as a once great and good neighbour slides swiftly and inexorably toward utter madness and mayhem.

I've been seeing Moloch in various manifestations over the last few years.. thought it was just me suffering from delusions. We can flee the gods but they will pursue us..
Thank you for the Ginsberg, I had not read that before.


Great use of a Ginsberg poem, but you misspelled his first name. It's Allen, not Alan. You were probably thinking of Alan Greenspan, who really was an agent of Moloch himself.

sfmike, I'm so ashamed. Thanks for the catch. I made the edit.


Beware of being accused of conspiracy theorizing, as the worship of Moloch is a popular, recurring theme among "Illuminati" scholars (as it were). Supposedly, the 40-foot owl statue at Bohemian Grove in California is an effigy of Moloch, as is the little owls perched on the one dollar bills, the owl design of the streets of Washington DC, and perhaps even the Owls of Rice University in Houston, TX, founded by alleged Illumninati (or the mysterious "elite".)

In regard to children being sacrificed to some god or other, I wrote back in 2008 that Sarah Palin essentially sacrificed her children for a higher calling; exploiting or "suffering" the little children is an intrinsic part of faux Christian doctrine and respected by this wing of religious zealots. They can't decide between Old and New Testament justifications, so they use whatever works.

Thank you for a great read, Lance; I've been reading this blog all morning. Glad I found it. Bookmarked.

Lance Mannion

Retie, good points and welcome and thank you! I'm glad you found your way here.
