Evangelist Courts Controversy

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

A Culpeper VA minister has created a controversy in the last few weeks with his popular Radio/podcast show “The Light of the Lord.”  Reverend G. Atwater, of Testament of Christ Church, is no stranger to outrage, having attracted a great deal of attention last year with an effort to prevent the remains of a pagan US Marine  from being interred in Culpeper National Cemetery.

One of his recent series of topics has drawn considerable criticism from Feminist and Anti-Domestic violence groups.  The program “She Shall Be Burnt With Fire” has been described as “a call for violence against women.”  In the program the Reverend agued that any woman who has had sex out of wedlock must be considered a whore and drew upon Leviticus 21:9 to declare they must have no part in the community of Christians.”

He followed this with “Separating the Daughters of Eve from the Daughters of Lilith.” which was full of claims that many women’s soul are actually the foul spawn of Lilith and should not be seen as the children of God.

The Reverend issued a statement in answer to the claims. “While I am certainly not instructing any one to act on their own, the Lord’s judgment is not to be denied. Any daughter of a Christian who plays the harlot is the same as a daughter of priest in the Old Testament.  The Lord shall see that they burn in the lake of fire. All we need to do is be sure to cut such trollops out of our lives, lest they cause sin to spread.”

Rare 16th Century Tarot Card Found in Estate Auction

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Another Tarot card from a deck created by the 16th century painter Giacinto deRose has been discovered in Culpeper VA. The card was found tucked away in a desk which had purchased at an estate sale. The card has been donated to The University of Virginia.

The deRose deck was made in 1510 as a gift to Cardinal Raffaele Riario. The entire deck was painted with the dense, almost cramped, symbolism common to deRoses work and is considered by many art historians as the man’s greatest work. After the Cardinal’s death in 1521 the deck was apparently divided between several of his heirs.

Over the centuries various cards from the deck have surfaced from time to time across Europe. Occult legend has attributed many powers to the cards of the deck and a 1984 Italian horror film, Carte dei Dannati, was based on these stories.

Two years ago another card from the deck was discovered in Culpeper among the personal effects of Wade C. Halford. His grandson, Richard, was later killed in a robbery and the card went missing. That card has never been recovered.

This finding has caused many to speculate that more of the deck may be found in the area.
