Air Force Academy "Turns Back Time"

Back on January 27th, I mentioned that the US Air Force Academy, located near Colorado Springs, had created a ritual space for followers of Pagan religions.

Jason Pitzl-Waters has been keeping up on various reactions, including some form of magic performed by (presumably) evangelical Christians, who think that putting two large crossed bits of lumber on the circle will somehow negate it. (My first thought: firewood!)

At least one writer to the Colorado Springs Gazette accuses the Air Force of romanticizing druids who performed human sacrifice.

It is shocking to contemplate a revival of druidic sacrifice. Can you imagine the Air Force procurement process for victims? Would there be a no-bid process or would there be competitive bidding?

I;m wondering where we all "learn" stuff like "druids practice human sacrifice." Movies? TV? The Internet? Bar chat? Church sermons? Playground rumors? Reading Julius Caesar?

And, of course, I'm wondering how a stone decorated locale at the Air Force Academy leads anybody--OK anybody with some common sense--to imagine that this military academy is prepping up for human sacrifices on its grounds.

I mean, we all know that the return of human sacrifice--if it happens--is gonna be a reality TV show!

Thanks - now I have a Cher song stuck in my head.

If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that hurt you
And you'd stay
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you
Then you'd love me, love me
Like you used to do
