Is Osama the May Day Scapegoat? Help me connect the dots...
Any experts out there care to discuss the possibility of Osama's coincidental 'death' on May 1 possibly being part of some May Day Scapegoating ritual?
A metaphorical Wicker Man, perhaps? He did die in a FIREfight, after all.
I can't seem to find info on Celtic and/or Germanic Pagans (celebrators of Beltane and Walpurgis) practicing the Scapegoat ritual per sé, but as soon as I heard the news about Osama, I instantly flashed on the date and made the connection.
Any takers? Anyone want to tell me I'm way off base? Anyone have any info at all?
