More on the Salem vampires: sex and death

The local Salem newspaper, The Salem Evening News, is now covering the vampire ball I mentioned the other day and the attendant controversy over advertising for it. I highlight it here because of the additional details we learn about what motivates these people.

To recap, the poster depicts a kneeling woman in a bikini, touching herself, and covered in blood. Here’s what the self-proclaimed witch organizing the event says about it:

“I guess we didn’t find the poster offensive at all, truly we didn’t,” Day said. “I think puritanical Salem needs to get over 1692; they’re a little bit backwards.”

Ah yes, the tired old argument that we’re all so backward, and why don’t we become modern like them. After all what kind of Neanderthal could find such a thing offensive?

As for violence against women, Day says, “It doesn’t look like the violence was exactly inflicted upon her. In actuality, it is she who is doing some of the violence.”

  • Eph 4:
    17So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, with a continual lust for more.

    Romans 1
    24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
    26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. …. 
    28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice.

    And the ACLU says we must accept this.
