Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

9:06 AM - Baltimore Brings Home the Ouija Board

Very interesting in light of recent developments in Baltimore.


Baltimore, home to "The Star-Spangled Banner," Babe Ruth, John Waters and (in spite of what Boston and Richmond may claim) Edgar Allan Poe.

And also the Ouija board, that mysterious oracle whose Charm City origins are being celebrated at this weekend's Ouijacon. This first-ever gathering of talking-board enthusiasts is determined to do for Baltimore what Monopoly has done for Atlantic City.

Already, there's an elaborate gravestone in Green Mount Cemetery, marking the final resting place of Elijah Bond, who patented the Ouija board in 1891. As part of Ouijacon, city officials will be unveiling a plaque, to be placed on the North Charles Street building where the Ouija board got its name. And while coming up with a game plan to rival Atlantic City's, which revels in its history as home to all the streets that were later incorporated onto the Monopoly board, Ouija aficionados have big ideas.

"Baltimore really has this unique piece of history," says Robert Murch, board chairman of the Talking Board Historical Society. "I'd like to see some kind of sign or recognition on every building, on all 13 factory sites, where Ouija boards were made. I'd like to see an original Ouija walk in Baltimore."
