FRONT ROYAL -- A split Town Council took a step Monday after a heated public hearing to strike a ban on fortunetelling from the books.

Council voted 4-3 to pass a motion on a first reading to repeal the town code section that prohibits fortunetelling, "gypsies" and "magic arts."

Apparently this is a hot topic for debate in the little Virginia town of Front Royal.

"Daryl Funk voted against the repeal"

With a name like that I can see why he wants to keep the status quo in place.

Does that mean they'll no longer have the popular witch-burning festival every year? That was always a crowd pleaser. :(

A short extract from the linked article....

Poel told council a "strong connection" exists between homosexuality and paganism....

I would suggest there is a strong connection betwen Poel's neural functions, and those of a courgette.

He confused paganism and christianity I think....... homosexual and pedophiles are part of church culture.

Anyway homosexual is nothing to be ashamed of and there is no "rule" in "paganism" which says that homosexual are inferioir to heterosexual compared to christianity.

Oh boy, what century is this?

From the article:

"Do you want it to be your legacy that you are the ones who opened the door in this community to make Front Royal a haven for witchcraft, fortunetelling and other pagan practices?" Centrella asked council.

Normally I find fortune telling and the like to be nothing but pointless prestidigitation, but with the backward and offensive way these people seem to think, I think all the pagans and gypsies should spend some time there.

But do you believe or accept freedom of religion? That's the real question!
