"Honesty is very seldom heard nowadays, especially from a politician. So, I am going to break from political tradition. My name is Jonathon “The Impaler” Sharkey, Ph.D., L.D.D.D. I am a Satanic Dark Priest, Sanguinarian Vampyre and a Hecate Witch. My Magikal Path name is: Lord Ares. I despise and hate the Christian God the Father. He is my enemy. However, it doesn't mean that I hate all his followers. This Country was founded on religious rights and freedoms. This is guaranteed under the 1st Amendment of our great constitution. This right allows me to worship Lucifer and the Goddess Hecate, just as it allows you to worship the Goddess/God of your choice."
From the campaign literature of Jonathon "The Impaler" Sharkey, who is running for governor of Minnesota (Vampire seeks Minnesota governor's job: 'I'm a Satanist who doesn't hate Jesus – I just hate God the Father'/Perth Sunday Times, Australia)
DFO: For some reason, I thought of this bird when I received the first call for the 2006 campaign season from a Boise pol who wants to stop by for endorsement purposes. I haven't seen the guy since he ran for office 4 years ago. I doubt that he'll be as interesting as "The Impaler."
