PaganNewsBeagle Magical Monday April 6

Howdy Beagle fans! Today we've got an installment of our occasional Magickal Monday series, in which we bring you stories of witchcraft, conjure, and all kinds of magick! A new shrine for Marie Laveau; the link between Voudou and traditional Haitian foods; L Ron Hubbard: magician?; capitalist magic?; garden magic for spring.

In light of the recent restrictions on visiting her tomb, the unveiling of a new shrine dedicated to Marie Laveau in New Orleans is cause for celebration for many.

PaganNewsBeagle Fiery Tuesday March 31

In today's fiery Tuesday post, we concentrate our attention on issues of interest to Pagan activists: Mother Jones takes a cheap shot; John Halstead offers an opinion on Indiana's new "religious freedom" law; is doing spellwork for money ethical?; women's power connected to witchcraft; consent culture and Pagan festivals.

Oh dear, Mother Jones -- really? This cheap shot (on an interesting subject that deserves better treatment) against religious minorities is both stupid and a low blow. Shame, Mother Jones, shame on you.
