For the third time this year, the planet Mercury has gone into retrograde and once again, the internet astrologers are trying to outdo one another with dire warnings about how this cosmological event can wreak havoc on planet Earth. Too bad it’s nothing but hype to sell natal charts and good luck charms.

Poltergeist Activity Should Not Be Taken Lightly

BK asks: "Strange occurrences have been happening in my home for some time now - objects moving around and sometimes falling off shelves for no reason. I'm beginning to suspect poltergeist activity and am wondering what this is, and if it's possible for a dead relative to be responsible for it?"

The difference between Christian and Occult-based fantasy

As all regular readers of this blog know, we get many questions about children's books in which the characters use sorcery in one way or another. In an effort to help Christian parents learn how to discern whether or not this content is suitable for their children, I would like to post insights from Michael O'Brien's book, Harry Potter and the Paganization of Culture ( which I hope you'll find useful.

JJ writes: "I have a friend and practicing Catholic who has found healing from a medical medium. Even though the Church condemns mediumship, she believes that because she was healed, that it must be of God because Satan cannot heal. I haven't had any luck researching this on my own, but can Satan provide healing as part of his deception?"

Woman Builds Altar to Fetal Remains After Chemical Abortion

Commentary by Susan Brinkmann, OCDS

In a shocking display of the spiritual confusion of our time, a YouTube video featuring a young woman giving instructions to women about how to build an altar to celebrate the “sacred abortion experience” after a chemical abortion has garnered more than 330,000 views.

In an article about the video appearing on National Right to Life News, a woman instructs viewers on how to build the altar in order to “create a space for your sacred container” which will contain the “products of conception” after the chemical abortion is complete.

Although the video is now private, you can view it on the Twitter feed of conservative activist Drew Hernandez.

In it, a young woman encourages viewers to proceed by cleaning the space around their altar, then instructs: “I like to always have a candle going on my altar…and I’m adding an Empress tarot card because she symbolizes feminine fertility and feminine energy,” she says and gives no indication why she worships feminine fertility while preparing to destroy the “products” of her own fertility. Nor does she explain the reason why her altar also contains a picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Patroness of the Americas and the Unborn.

“I also really like to add the abortion pills themselves to the altar to really bless the pills that we will be taking into our bodies during this process,” she continues. “Before having your abortion, I would recommend giving them a nice sage or palo santo or another smoke to really cleanse the energy and really bless them and place your intention for healing into the pills before you take them.” Healing for whom, and why, are questions she never addresses.

She goes on to instruct viewers to “place the container in which you plan to place the products of conception or the fetal remains within to catch that after you pass it and save it for later when you find a way to bury or otherwise…to where we find a way to properly dispose of the fetal remains in a way that gives reverence and support to this sacred abortion experience.” Notice that the reverence is being given to the abortion, not the fetal remains.

In addition to being a place designated for worshiping the “abortion experience,” she suggests that women return to the altar “whenever you want to meditate, whenever you want to think deeply or contemplate any aspect of your abortion. It’s a really beautiful way to just give reverence to the experience and hold the experience in a really sacred way.”

In the end of the video, the woman folds her hands as if in prayer and says, “Thanks so much for building your altar with me today,” she says. “So much love.”

The unintended irony of that closing statement is almost too much to bear, says Dave Andrusko, Editor of National Right to Life News. “More than once I have characterized abortion as a secular sacrament. If ever you were tempted to think I was going overboard, consider this."

It’s also very indicative of the diabolical disorientation prevalent among the New Age “n.o.n.e.s.” who brag about being “spiritual” rather than religious. They sincerely believe they can mix-and-match religious practices at will – such as placing tarot cards on the same altar with Our Lady of Guadalupe – and as long as the combination makes them “feel good” it’s okay. This dangerous naivete about the supernatural world is leading many of them into darker realms without them even being aware of it until it’s too late.

As one commenter on the video states, “This just shows how evil 'New Age' really is. They convince people that EVERYTHING is positive and light if you just do it with a couple quartz crystals and some incense burning. This is dark energy and clearly taking the Left Hand path.”

Another commenter had a similar view: “This is a powerful example of why the modern New Age movement is so very dangerous & insidious. You can get from your local crystal shop to building abortion ritual altars VERY QUICKLY.”

Others just saw the video as pure evil. “Straight from the pits of hell,” one viewer said, while another called it “Ba’al worship.” Others questioned why she didn’t have a picture on her altar of Molech, the god to whom pagan peoples used to sacrifice their children.

All agree that this woman is very confused and seems so intent on denying the reality of abortion that she has created a fantasy-world where the act of killing the innocent is celebrated and considered “sacred” and worthy of reverence, with no regard for the individual whose life was taken.

This video can be described in just two words – pure evil.

What You Might Not Know About the Peace Symbol

BW would like to know more about the peace symbol. "Often claimed to have been invented at the dawn of the nuclear age, I have dug a bit deeper and found it to be a broken-armed cross, favored by Nero. Also, it apparently decorates graves of Nazis (heavily into the occult). I suspect there is much more. . . "
