    Idolatry Easter Spring Festival/Dr Pat Holliday/Dr Sabrina Session/Marshal Perot

    in Religion

    Easter Spring Festival


    Where did Easter observance come? Did early Christian dye Easter eggs?  Did Apostles ever conduct an Easter sunrise service?  The word Easter appears once in the King James Version: "...intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people “Acts 12:4". The word translated "Easter" here is Pascha is a Greek word for Passover and has no connection with the English "Easter." Easter is not originally a Christian expression. Easter comes from a name of a pagan goddess, the goddess of the rising light of day and spring. Modern form of: goddesses-Oostre, Astarte, Ishtar, according to Hislop, being pronounced as we pronounce “Easter” today Hishop.[i]


    Easter eggs are colored, hid, hunted, and eaten, fun and frolic for children. Custom did not originate with Christianity. Babylonian considered egg a sacred symbol Old fable of an egg of wondrous size which fell from heaven into the Euphrates River From this marvelous egg, according to the ancient myth, the goddess Astarte (Easter) was hatched. The egg came to symbolize the goddess Easter. [ii]


     Ancient Druids (Satanic Priest) bore an egg as the sacred emblem of their idolatrous Among the Egyptians; the egg was associated with sun. The gold egg their dyed eggs were used as sacred offering at the Easter season.

    Ba'al and Astarte's Neo-Pagan Magick (re-broadcast)

    in Radio

    The Hermetic Hour will feature a discussion led by host Poke Runyon, with Ed Fitch, and Rustee Wizzerd, calling in, on the marriage of Paganism, Witchcraft and Ceremonial Magick seen in the revival of the 1970s Order of the Temple of Astarte in the 21st century. We will talk about how this all got started, what our original goals were, and what influenced the O.T.A. to attempt a modern synthesis of Victorian era Gnostic and Rosicrucian magical systems with the more shamanic and earth-oriented Neo-Pagan Movement. This will be an eye-opener to newbies who often have no idea what the real differences between Wicca and Magick are, or how much one owes to the other -- so, tune in and find out what's going on in strange, dark blue rooms across the country. It's Magick!

    in Education

    Call in to learn how Black Lives have been "caged" for entertainment since the turn of the century.  Bars by any name...are a prison...and a cage. Join host Dr. Sonia Banks, Chair, Manhattan Chapter, NCBW for our Leadersatplay Education Series. Meet an award-winning journalist, Pamela Newkirk, as she reveals a little-known and shameful episode in American history, when an African man was used as a human zoo exhibit—a shocking story of racial prejudice, science, and tragedy in the early years of the twentieth century in the tradition of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Devil in the White City, and Medical Apartheid.  In 1904, Ota Benga, a young Congolese “pygmy”—a person of petite stature—arrived from central Africa and was featured in an anthropology exhibit at the St. Louis World’s Fair. Two years later, the New York Zoological Gardens displayed him in its Monkey House, caging the slight 103-pound, 4-foot 11-inch tall man with an orangutan.

    Mesopotamian and Canaanite Mythology

    in Radio

    On Thursday June 18th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will present a discussion on ancient Mesopotamian Mythology and its relation to the Canaanite myths that comprise the Seasonal ceremonies of the Order of the Temple of Astarte. As our in studio guest we will have Frater Isa from our Ubar Encampment
    in Dallas, Texas. We will touch on such subjects as the Anunnaki (Elder Gods), How Man was created by the Earth Goddess as a slave of the Gods, how Oannes brought civilization to the Summerians, and the numerous parallels between Canaanite and
    Mesopotamian myth and legend. Our primary text will be John Gray's Near Eastern Mythology which is cross-comparitive. If you have been curious about the similarities between Ishtar and Astarte, or Baal and Marduk, then tune in and we will try to sort out the pre-Biblical family-trees for you.
