* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Florida State Rep Says Dolls Are Possessed by Demons

This is a person making laws affecting millions of Florida residents. But wait! There's more:

'Daniels [an African American] also made news earlier this year when she thanked God for slavery because otherwise she “might be somewhere in Africa worshiping a tree.” '

We should be so lucky, that A) she'd be in Africa, or anyplace else that's not here; and that B) she'd practice a religion so sensible and wonderful as to worship trees.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

May the spirits of her ancestors possess the bible she's thumping.  ::)

I think it's only fair that she get to outlaw dolls for everyone in the country. It's her sincerely-held religious belief, after all. Maybe we could work up some kind of punishment for people who have dolls, too. Or who look like dolls! You never know.

She's a delusional lunatic. Fetishism and idolatry, really? What is this, the 15th century? Being worried about Satanism is a classic Christian scare tactic, but being worried about actual witches and demons practicing actual black magic? In the 21st century in the USA? I'm flabbergasted. This doesn't sound like the 1980's Satanic Panic, or even 19th century imperialist rhetoric about Christianize the world, it sounds more like the language used during the early modern witch craze. I'm flabbergasted, gobsmacked, and generally baffled where she got these notions. Did she spend to much time reading the Malleus Maleficarum or something?

"The worshippers of the gods go to them; to the manes go the ancestor-worshippers; to the Deities who preside over the elements go their worshippers; My devotees come to Me." ... "Whichever devotee desires to adore whatever such Deity with faith, in all such votaries I make that particular faith unshakable. Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna
