The Saint Patrick snakes were druids, witches, midwives, and pagans. He was particularly adept at the persecution of these innocents and rewarded appropriately. It’s Saint Patrick’s day again – apparently the most popular “drinking festival” in the world. This is actually super apt – for centuries before Patrick was around – this was Dionysus day, the Pagan God of wine, drunken revels, music, and licentious pleasures.
Bishop Patrick has always been contentious. He was credited with “driving the snakes out of Ireland” but Ireland never had any actual snakes. At least, not in civilized memory. But the “snakes” were the druids, goddess worshipers, midwives, homosexuals and you know – strange men and strange women according to the Church. Patrick’s chief accomplishment was apparently to forcibly convert people to Christianity.
The Saint Patrick Snakes were Pagans and Witches
To this day, Irish Pagans still put a wreath of snakes – not shamrocks – around their door on St Patrick’s day as a ‘we’re still here’ statement. But others say that Patrick was never officially sainted by the Church and certainly not for services rendered witch-hunting and being evil, that the bad deeds were actually done by a completely different bishop.
And then there is this, from The Woman’s Encylopedia Of Myths and Secrets, saying he WAS/IS basically a Pagan deity. It’s so easy to lose track of stolen Pagan festivals and Church atrocities. But what if the Saint Patrick snakes connection was there was a Snake God before the douche-lord bishop?!
