I don't believe in all these witchcraft, superstition, witchcraft, pentecostalism, exorcism
witch-hunt, democracy bizniz. I would have sent them my Paper Presentation, but I'm not sure if I should, should not or should. I'm confused. I'd have to get back to you after I've consulted an ouija board.

Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knowledge is power o. Let us understand how this madafuckers think so that if we can't cure their hyper-weird-religiousity, we can figure out how to manipulate it for the good of all.
