A Spell That’s For the Birds

Two employees at a North Miami Beach police station (an officer and a secretary) were fired after attempting to cast a spell on the city manager by sprinkling birdseed in his office:

“Ultimately, the city manager really doesn’t have anything to worry about, because in Santeria, you can’t just spread bird seed and make the supernatural do what you want it to do,” said Michelle Maldonado, a professor of Religious Studies at the University of Miami.

Well, that’s good to know.  I’m sure he’ll be sleeping better now with that knowledge.

I wonder, if they were Christians and had recited a prayer against Bonner if they would have been fired for their actions? Or perhaps it was just the mess that did it.
