Re: just plain wrong!


Hello Lewis,

I was looking at this work, & I tried to find some kind of human compassion=
or sense of dealing with political scum or anything else worth doing - but=
it seems that the individual who created the work is keen to spread hatred=
instead, whilst hiding behind a mask. It reminds me of the sort of individ=
ual who hates everyone & wants to shoot them all, a psycho. It also reminds=
me of a national front bigot - we get plenty of those backward types in th=
e UK. The sun newspaper has a few writing for them also. I hope the individ=
ual who setup this site did it learn something and not perpetrate even more=
bigotry in the world. Doubt it though...

this is about as wrong as they come:

BlankOwnership of the Soul & Casting out the Genie - Genius

I have read the "The Devils of Loudon", and Possession of one's soul was a =
dominant factor in the premodern world. Including abuse by most of the powe=
rs that be, whether by the state of religious institutions. Times don't cha=
nge much. Exorcists and religious functionaries were called upon to drive d=
emons and other spiritual beings out of persons, while oracles and prophets=
chose to summon such beings to come to them. In the New Testament, Christ =
is frequently called upon to drive evil demons and "unclean spirits" out of=
people. It was a widespread belief in the ancient world that these spiritu=
al beings were responsible for the physical and mental illnesses of most pe=
ople. Creative people were thought to be possessed by a genius (the word co=
mes from the same root as djinn or genie) or tutelary planetary "daemon" wh=
ich provided them with their wisdom. When people were acting "not like them=
selves," it was assumed that their soul had been expelled and that their bo=
dy was now possessed or owned by some other spiritual being. (Garrett 1987:=
