dead woman’s body hidden in Lourdes

Another example of someone out of touch with reality:,,1998805,00.html

…although I’m not sure that pagans are all that much better sometimes. We go to aromatherapists and reiki practicioners more often than we go to regular doctors. I used to know some pagans who also refused real medical help, and preferred ritual and spellcraft–even to heal a broken leg!

    Why does it always surprise me when the Grauniad comes up with a Colemanball?

    It is understood the body of Ms Kearney had lain in the bedroom since last she died.

    …er, so I’m guessing this has happened before.

    More seriously, I think the Pagans I’ve known have been more likely to avail themselves of medical care than the general population. I’m not certain whether this is a case of odd sample or what. Possibly our(*) flakes are just more visible to us at any given time?

    (*) Bla bla bla disclaimer bla bla fundamental disconnect bla Pagan subcultures, bla.

    First, yuk. Second, why the hell was the child left with the mother and grandmother? If the grandfather left, he should have taken the kid too, or gotten the father involved. Third, I agree, definitely out of touch with reality on sooo many levels. Fourth, I hope that poor child gets some counselling…
