Rusty Lee Freeman, also known as the Reverend Rapid Cabot Freeman, is a fat middleaged dork who likes to pretend he is a high priest of a fake religion and also likes to pretend to be an American Indian. He hosts a train-wreck of a show on cable access. Currently he is hurling charges of discrimination at the town of Sprague, Connecticut, because the town won’t let him use its public library to perform witch spells on Halloween. It seems he lacks the brains, cash, and residency to be allowed a permit.
Here is Rusty, trying to phreak out the mundanes. He practices magick with a “k” because that way there is more ph3ar!
As it turns out, all his bitching in public earned him a trip to the jail on charges that he stalked a woman he used to work with. And its not his first stalking charge. The guy collects restraining orders as if they were Harry Potter trading cards. From TheDay.Com here:
The real name of the Witch of Baltic is Rusty. And as to his witch credentials, well, there is some question of that. But Rusty Lee Freeman, aka the Rev. Rapid Cabot Freeman, has been arrested for stalking a Norwich teacher.
Freeman was claiming he was a victim of religious discrimination in Sprague. The first selectman, he said, had thwarted his plans to perform a demonstration of witchcraft for kids and their parents in that town’s public library on Halloween.
But no sooner had the story appeared in The Day than Norwich police, who’d been seeking him on a warrant since July, arrested and charged him with second-degree harassment of Kelly Hajduk.
Hajduk said Wednesday that Freeman had pursued and harassed her, beginning in 2002, and had ignored a cease-and-desist order sent to him by her lawyer. Finally, on July 12, she went to the police.
Hajduk and Freeman became acquainted, Hajduk said, when each of them was doing a show on public access television. Her show was “Concert Connections”; his was “The Witching Hour.” They became friends, she said, until he wanted to take it further. “The bottom line was he was just asked to leave me alone, and he didn’t,” she said. In fact, she said, Freeman became hostile and threatening.
Freeman told police that he continued to call Hajduk because “I was trying to get her to testify in my divorce from my ex-wife, Alicia.” Alicia Lyon Folberth and Freeman were divorced in August, and Folberth has a restraining order against him. Folberth has written a 20-page letter, which she posted on the Internet, alleging that Freeman abused her, which he denies.
Freeman’s divorce, he said, was over his adherence to “the Cabot tradition” of witchcraft, propagated by the Witch of Salem, Laurie Cabot. ”I’m an honest guy that went through a bad divorce,” he said. “But the reason I divorced her in the first place is that she wanted me to renounce the Cabot tradition.”
The divorce led to his demotion from an honorary third-degree to a second-degree priest of witchcraft within the Cabot organization, he said. ”I’ve been a victim of the American system forever,” Freeman said. “The only person that’s harassing anybody is my ex-wife is harassing me.”
Aww, the poor put-upon pagan. It seems that the Rev. Rapid is the victim of a spelling and grammar hex according to his rambling posts on his myspace pages here and here. He mentions, in all his creepy, run-on-sentence way, how he was into Kelly Hajduk:
now in the name of clearing the air forever and leaving behind my side of the my story there was a woman named kelly lu my little rock n’ roller that my heart loved more than both my wives but she was to blind to see what she had in the palm of her hand and i wish her joy as well and i hope that someday she understands how much i did love her and if she is reading this now i hope she understands that we came to an end of her own device and I will never be ashamed of the fact i loved her and even though it meant getting my heart broke twice by the same girl im glad i looked for her when i came home at least i got the answers i needed as a man to move on with my life .i hope one day she has the guts to admit to what we had. because love is never wrong.I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU MY LITTLE ROCK N’ ROLLER!
Practitioners of Wicca are nothing more than 14 year old girls emotionally and spiritually, and are too poor and stupid to join a better cult or religion. Seriously, Wicca is just Satanism with Downs Syndrome. Blessed Be!
