More Christine O’Donnell Craziness: ‘Midnight Picnic on a Satanic Altar’

September 18, 2010

(ChattahBox Political News)—The hits keep coming on Christine O’Donnell. The fringe tea party Republican senatorial nominee from Delaware, has a lengthy public record of making extremist statements while working as an advocate and spokesperson for various right-wing organizations. And with 22 appearances on Bill Maher’s program alone, there exists a treasure trove of O’Donnell lunacy. As if her claim that scientists have successfully inserted a fully functioning human brain into a mouse, isn’t absurd enough, a new Maher clip reveals O’Donnell’s curiosity with witchcraft. And a midnight field trip to a “satanic altar.”

The former anti-masturbation advocate and homophobe, made her bizarre remarks during a 1999 guest appearance on Bill Maher’s program.

O’Donnell, while attempting to establish her status as a witchcraft “expert,” told Maher about a devilish midnight date, in which blood was seen on an altar to the devil.

The now-Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, said she “dabbled into witchcraft,” and even had a date that included a “midnight picnic on a satanic altar.”

This definitely falls into a “you can’t make this stuff up” category.

Watch it:

    Number one: Please learn how to spell “altar” before mocking the intelligence of someone talking about one. That would help a bit.

    Number two: This was a 15 year old clip. Do you think you might find a home video where she sasses her mom, and play that so that we can see how defiant she is to authority? Why not criticize her fashion sense or hairstyle in a high school shot?

    Number three: It is common for newly converted Christians to become a bit obsessed or fixated on the reality of a supernatural world, especially the demonic aspects. It is unfortunate that sometimes comments are made that sound a bit hyperbolic. I dunno about O’donnell. Maybe what she said was true, and maybe she embellished this stuff, or maybe made it up wholesale.

    If you are questioning her veracity and integrity in the clip, I might be skeptical with you. I would then like to see how she handled being confronted on the issue. Part of maturity (if she misspoke, I don’t know if she did) would be saying, “I not only lied, but I lied in the name of the truth. That is wrong, and I hope my getting carried away 15 years ago doesn’t destroy my credibility today.” That would show not only common sense and maturity, but maturity about what Christianity is all about, which is not moral rectitude (though you would hope for that), but humility and repentance, rather than pride, foolishness and deceit.

    As far as foolishness goes, though, it is the height of idiocy to assume a supercilious stance and mock the reality of a true spiritual world that is populated by super-intelligent beings, some of whom are truly malevolent. Moreover it is the height of dumbass to assume there is no spillover from that world into this one. I can’t tell from your jibe here. Are you just as stupid as you accuse O’donnell of being?

    She shed blood and had a Satanic picnic at an altar. Who does that? Wiccans don’t do that. What’s wrong with this woman. Why couldn’t she just listen to Judas Priest albums like a normal kid?
