I didn't vote for you!

When I was looking at Wren's Nest News on The Witches' Voice this morning, I saw an article about an occult centre that's supposed to be opening in England—in Cambridge, to be precise. Apparently "Church leaders" are worried that he'll target vulnerable people, and I've got to say that I agree with them, even if I don't have their precise motivations. The man himself who is opening the place already owns several in France, and apparently he considers himself to be the King of All Witches...

...even though Witches don't have a King or a Queen, or even just a single unified system of belief...

...and even though Kevin Carlyon, who was once widely compared to Gilderoy Lockhart, has already claimed to be not just the King of the British White Witches, but claims to be a God...

...and even though similar claims have always earned nothing but ridicule from Witches and Pagans in general!

Every time I hear of yet another self-proclaimed Witch King (It's odd that it's never a Queen, eh?) it reminds me of that bit in Monty Python and the Holy Grail when King Arthur is confronted by Dennis, the peasant who objects to him being king just because the Lady of the Lake gave him a sword. I can't help but laugh about it. And I can't wait to hear what King Kev has to say about this—let those two self-promoting frauds duke it out for the title of Silliest Pompous Arse Ever to Wear a Pentacle.

But regardless of which one would win, he's not my king...I didn't vote for him! ;)
