I understood this hand gesture to be of old Italian origin and was actually the opposite, being to ward off evil spirits.



Here is one site that backs this up:
What is The Evil Eye?: A Brief History of the Spell and a Possible Cure (http://pagan-wiccan-practice.suite101.com/article.cfm/the_evil_eye)




Of course, there are a multitude of sites, like you have posted BA, that say the opposite. I suppose we have to look at all the theories and decide to ourselves which we believe.

I told you of the origin.

Obviously we have seen the sign make its way into mainstream society courtesy of heavy metal musicians, extreme sports athletes and professional wrestlers that all use it to excess.


Seeing Hilary Clinton use this sign as a "cowabunga" speaks more to her being a fool about pop culture than the fact that she is a satanist.


Do you really believe that these major politicians are intentionally flashing a satanic hand gesture as a profession of their satanic faith? Even a guy like GWB who was put in office by right-wing christian fundamentalists who are watching his every move?

Chances are it's a "now" thing to do. They are probably just having fun with it.
They probably don't take their doing so very seriously.

But as was discussed previously, it is NOT a satanic hand gesture. It is the opposite.
