Uses the cards... as a bikini?

She did it with tarot cards
and a mystically untuned mind...

And shortly thereafter she did fine...

Because she uses Tarot cards

Boy, they'd really hate my pornographic Tarot cards.

From TFA:

"Tarot card reading is witchcraft and is used by witches, spiritists and mediums to consult the dark world."

WIN!

with reason. we can't have our competitions in superficiality tainted by devil worshippers now can we?

anyone who makes decisions based Tarot cards deserves the farkup shiat that happens to them.

My Psychic uses a crystal ball tesla coil. I get my future and a static charge all at once.

/this is a joke. dont goto a psychic.

Since when is a beauty pageant a religious event? I can see how they'd object if it was Miss Holier-than-thou or something. But Miss Toronto Tourism?
 
2008-01-29 01:15:58 PM  
Maybe they can get Nancy Reagan to be a judge.
 
2008-01-29 01:16:06 PM  
So the head of a contest for stupid pretty people is pretty stupid.

What a shocker!

This article and thread are USELESS for obvious reasons

In Canada, no less. I didn't think the religious right makes the rules on the north side of the border.
 
2008-01-29 01:17:50 PM  
Yeah, cause we want people to take this whole contest for the serious matter that it is.

/meh.

Typically when beauty queen judges are rejected because of tarot cards, they are forced to chose between being strippers or dikes. She should've seen this coming. I bet she already bought the shoes.

Gads. I love how that last bit is stated as 'fact', as if there really is a dark world or something.

Then again, it IS the Toronto Star. Or as my friend and I call it 'Pravada'. Then again, hyperbole is their specialty.
You will never find a more vile hive of scum and liberal pandering. Be on your guard...

I am thrilled to see that Canada has self-righteous nuts and religious intolerance too.

Canada and the United States: Two countries separated by a really long imaginary line.

Conover, who was crowned winner of the Miss Canada Plus Pageant last year (emphasis added)

Miss Canada Plus what - vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom?

/pageants reject
//pageant rejects
///you must choose, but choose wisely

She should have just been OT VIII, then she could predict the future without Tarot cards.

Wait, wait...I read about this before but I missed one very important detail

Miss Canada Plus Pageant?

No pics please.

On the other hand, FATTY THREAD!

A little research yielded this.
She also has tried the Miss Canada Plus Pageant.

Witchcraft = bad, dehumanizing women = A-OK!

It'll be useful to point out this is a context for "Miss Canada Plus."

Christian fundamentalists are running beauty pageants now?

I've got the good ol' solid Thoth deck, and it's never lied.

She might be canadian but all I can think of is Russian.
 
2008-01-29 01:24:51 PM  
"Our board of directors has eliminated her as a judge as tarot card reading and reiki are the occult and is not acceptable by God, Jews, Muslims or Christians."

But beauty pageants are?

and speaking of the occult...
 
2008-01-29 01:25:29 PM  
So Ms. Canada Plus is like the Ms. Canada pageant, but with cankles and backfat?
 
2008-01-29 01:26:03 PM  
Andrew Wiggin:

Normally they don't, but this is just a pageant so we don't care as much as we otherwise would.

/What, no pictures of the "dark-sided" woman?
 
2008-01-29 01:27:18 PM  
Wow, that should get the woman who responded with her bible quotes fired.

I think Miss Canada Plus would be covered by employment laws, even though it's essentially a volunteer position.

Man, how do bigots like that get into even minor positions of authority in Canada?
 
2008-01-29 01:28:15 PM  
THA DAAAARK SYYDE-AH!!
 
2008-01-29 01:28:28 PM  
They didn't seem to have a problem crowning her last year. I don't see what they should have any problems with her being a judge this year.

Perhaps they are scared that she will turn them into newts.

Maybe they should just build a bridge out of her.
 
2008-01-29 01:28:47 PM  
Somehow I don't believe some P.C. Canadian oversight board is going to allow that decision to stand.

You are correct. I was not commenting on her hotness, but on her boobiness.

"We want someone down to earth, not someone into the dark side or the occult."

This from someone who believes people are inherently evil and the solution to all problems is to pray harder to the sky god?

czarangelus: I've got the good ol' solid Thoth deck, and it's never lied.

Mine either. But mine were given to me, I've heard they don't work as well when you purchase them yourself?

"We hope that Stephanie Conover will turn from these belief systems and will repent from her practice of them," the letter reads.

Funny, that's precisely what I think about the judges who rejected her.
