To turn back plague

It might be missing from common knowledge, but the plague that ravaged most of Europe was considered God's wrath by the Church state. The healers of the time were often thought to be in league with the devil because they fought the ravages of their God's divine vengeance. Such ridiculous claims are made time and time about our current plague, AIDS.

The zealots were wrong about the bubonic plague. It was not started by God in his outrage of what men were doing; it was started by karma in its rage against what the Church had done. Countless numbers died because the Church was not willing to open its eyes and observe the simple fact that the only places the plague could be found were those places where the cat population was low and the rat population was high. We should not be surprised that the Church did not notice this correlation because to do so, the Church would have had to recognize that its war on healers and their other imaginary enemies brought them to kill cats on sight. It was strongly believed that cats were the messengers who helped communication between Witches and Satan.

Things haven't changed much. Our cats are no longer considered Satan's messengers, but zealots are still persecuting the victims of plague (AIDS and HIV). Illness is still considered the wrath of God, especially when it strikes someone the Church does not like. The victims of plague are still persecuted for the divine wrath that they have called down. What the zealots are really doing is attempting to justify their own meager existence by blaming someone else. It is kin to Hitler's insistence that Germany was not prosperous because the Jews were holding all the wealth.

Healing these injustices and the plague itself is not a simple case of solitary meditation because, although your intent may be that AIDS victims are treated with respect and dignity, it is the intent of others that they be spat on and rounded up in concentration camps. This challenge is so great, that we must call on multiple forces to hear our plea.

"WooooooooooooooTaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan! Hear our cry!

Our brothers and sisters are about to die!

Their lives have been short and their battles few

All in all they are nothing like you of you

But what, if anything, would you have become

If at your birth the Fenris wolf had won?

WooooooooooooooTaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan! Hear our cry!"

The problem with demons like AIDS is that they are both huge and tiny. Warrior spirit cannot crush what it cannot see. This brings our battle to a different field. There is only one thing that will cure AIDS, HIV, MD, MS, and all the other nasty combinations of letters. There is only one thing that will defeat the cancer that took my father's life, and there is only one thing that will rid this world of the other microscopic demons that consume the body one cell at a time. That one thing is money.

The warrior spirit may not be able to combat the microorganisms of this battle, but it can be used to raise awareness and crush the popular pagan idea that money does not matter. To believe that it does not is not a Wiccan archetype of our protector and provider, and it should not be an archetype of our community.

Be it disease, poverty, cruelty to animals, or any other value that our community claims, using real magick to cause real external change is a noble cause. It should fill our hearts, minds, and our festivals. This is how the real pre-Christian pagan conducted himself, and this is how the real neopagan should conduct himself. Anything else and you are just amusing yourself with role-playing games.

Think global! Act local!
