PSYCHIC FAIR - ENTERTAINMENT OR RELIGION ?
An Associated Press article at Newsday.com poses the question what is a psychic fair?
Rev. Jason McGuire, denomination unspecified, the legislative director of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, claims the Albany, New York psychic fair crosses the line separating church and state.
Not so says the state Office of General Services which claims this second annual Psychic Fair and Halloween Festival "is just good clean fun". The OGS spokesman Brad Maione says "these vendors...are strictly entertainment" and "the fair isn't a cost to state taxpayers." Incredibly, OGS officials claim the "fair was not connected to the occult or religion." So psychics, astrologers, mediums, dream interpreters, and tarot card readers, all of whom will be a part of this psychic fair, are not part of occultism? Who knew? Given this delusion on the part of the Office of General Services for Albany, I'm darn glad I live in another state!
Among those listed as appearing at the fair are "people who talk to angels". Hmmm. Did they invite Opus Angelorum, one wonders?
Speaking of O.A., I ran across this blog last night in which a nun is promoting talking with your guardian angel as a good thing. A commenter has promoted the work of O.A. as a help to learning how to do this.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
