Novensiles

In ancient Roman religion, the dii Novensiles or Novensides are collective deities of obscure significance found in inscriptions, prayer formulary, both ancient and early-Christian literary texts. In antiquity, the initial element of the word novensiles was thought to derive from either "new" or "nine"; the form novensides has been explained as "new settlers," from novus and insidere, "to settle". The enduringly influential 19th-century scholar Georg Wissowa thought that the novensiles or novensides were deities the Romans regarded as imported, that is, not indigenous like the di Indigetes. Although Wissowa treated the categories of indigetes and novensiles as a fundamental way to classify Roman gods, the distinction is hard to maintain. Arnaldo Momigliano pointed out that no ancient text poses novensiles and indigetes as a dichotomy, that the etymology of novensides is far from settled. In his treatise on orthography, the 4th-century philosopher Marius Victorinus regarded the spellings novensiles and novensides as a simple phonetic alteration of l and d, characteristic of the Sabine language.

Some ancient sources say the novensiles are nine in number, leading to both ancient and modern identifications with other divine collectives numbering nine, such as the nine Etruscan deities empowered to wield thunder or with the Muses. The name is thus sometimes spelled Novemsides, it may be that only the cults of deities considered indigenous were first established within the sacred boundary of Rome, with "new" gods on the Aventine Hill or in the Campus Martius, but it is uncertain whether the terms indigetes and novensiles correspond to this topography. William Warde Fowler observed that at any rate a distinction between "indigenous" and "imported" begins to vanish during the Hannibalic War, when immigrant deities are invoked for the protection of the state; the novensiles are invoked in a list of deities in a prayer formula preserved by the Augustan historian Livy. The prayer is uttered by Decius Mus during the Samnite Wars as part of his vow to offer himself as a sacrifice to the infernal gods when a battle between the Romans and the Latins has become desperate.

Although Livy was writing at a time when Augustus cloaked religious innovation under appeals to old-fashioned piety and traditionalism, archaic aspects of the prayer suggest that it represents a traditional formulary as might be preserved in the official pontifical books. The other deities invoked — among them the Archaic Triad of Jupiter and Quirinus, as well as the Lares and Manes — belong to the earliest religious traditions of Rome. Livy explains that he will record the archaic ritual of devotio at length because "the memory of every human and religious custom has withered from a preference for everything novel and foreign." That the novensiles would appear in such a list at all, before the indigetes, is surprising if they are "new."Both the Lares and the Manes are "native" gods regarded in ancient sources as the deified dead. Servius says that the novensiles are "old gods" who earned numinous status through their virtus, their quality of character; the early Christian apologist Arnobius notes other authorities who regarded them as mortals who became gods.

In this light, the novensiles, like the Lares and Manes, may be "concerned with the subterranean world where ancestors were sleeping." The proliferation of deities among the Romans was mocked by the Church Fathers: Tertullian took a euhemerizing approach in explaining why the gods of the Romans kept multiplying. Arnobius attempting to demonstrate the logical flaws in the Roman conception of divinity, offers what is the most extended discussion of the novensiles in any extant source, lists seven authorities whose explanations of their identity strike him as mutually exclusive. Several other sources, he notes, say that the novensiles are people who have become divus, "divine" or "deified'. According to Arnobius, a Piso, most the Calpurnius Piso Frugi, an annalist and consul in 133 BC, said that the novensiles were nine gods whose cult had been established in Sabine country at Trebia; the location has been identified variously as the river Trebbia, Trevi nel Lazio, or one of the places called Trebula in antiquity, two of which — Trebula Mutusca and Trebula Suffenas — are in Sabine territory.

Gary Forsythe has conjectured that Piso's family came from the middle Tiber valley, on the border of Etruria and Sabine country, that he was drawing on personal knowledge. The father of this Piso is the L. Calpurnius who dedicated a shrine to Feronia at Lucus Feroniae near Capena. Varro, himself Sabine, placed the Novensides in his much-noted catalogue of Sabine deities. Inscriptions in Sabine country mention the novensiles or novensides, for instance, dieu. nove. sede at Pisaurum. A Marsian inscription names the novensiles without the indigetes; the 19th-century scholar Edward Greswell sought to connect the nine novensiles of the Sabines to the nundinal cycle, the eight-day "week" of the Roman calendar that Roman inclusive counting reckoned as nine days. A 4th- or 3rd-century BC inscription from Ardea reading neven deivo has been taken to refer to the Novensiles as nine deities. Granius Flaccus and Aelius Stilo, Arnobius says, identify the Novensiles with the Muses, implying that they are nine in number.

In the Roman tradition, the Muses became identified with the Camenae, the Latin goddesses of fresh-water sources and prophetic inspiration. The two best-known of the Cam

Wiley Drake

Wiley S. Drake is a California-based minister and radio host, he was the vice-presidential candidate for the American Independent Party ticket in California in 2008. Drake has drawn controversy for his use of imprecatory prayer, he is the pastor of the First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park in California. Drake grew up in Arkansas, he spent much of his time with his grandfather, Hamp Smead Beasley, a horse trader who took him to revival meetings. After winning a rodeo purse at 14, he joined the rodeo circuit, he served on the Kitty Hawk. During the 1980s and 1990s, Drake clashed with officials of the city of Buena Park when he "turned his church parking lot and a church recreation building into a makeshift homeless shelter...", housing groups of homeless persons for months at a time. This activity led to his conviction in July 1997 of violation of property usage codes. Drake wrote the resolution at the Southern Baptist Convention in 1996 calling for a boycott of the Walt Disney Corporation over its decision to "promote homosexuality over family values" by granting health benefits to gay and lesbian partners of employees.

At that time, Drake described homosexuality as "abnormal, biologically unhealthy, as well as contrary to Bible teachings." Drake protested an unofficial "Gay Day" celebration held at Disneyland in 1998. He campaigned against the appointment of a gay man, former University of Chicago dean James Hormel, as ambassador to Luxembourg. "We need to speak out and say we do not want an avowed homosexual to represent the U. S," Drake said in 1997. In early 2008, the pastor for the First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park, was a vocal supporter of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee's presidential campaign, he sent out a letter endorsing Huckabee. Because the letter was on church stationery, the Internal Revenue Service began investigating Drake for endorsing a political candidate as a church leader, because electioneering by churches is forbidden as a condition for churches' tax-exempt status. Drake's possible violation of federal tax law was reported to the IRS by an advocacy group called Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

Drake called on supporters to use imprecatory prayer to pray for the punishment and deaths of certain AU members, drawing controversy. In May 2008, Drake announced that he had been cleared of any wrongdoing by the IRS. Drake ran for Vice President of the United States in 2008, along with presidential candidate Alan Keyes, on the American Independent Party ticket in the state of California. Drake was criticized for his response to the murder of abortion provider George Tiller on May 31, 2009. Drake stated on his Crusade Radio Program, "I am glad George Tiller is dead." He called Tiller "a brutal, murdering monster" and said he is "grateful to God" that the physician was killed. He said, "This man, George Tiller, was far greater in his atrocities than Adolf Hitler." Religion journalist Cary McMullen has written that, in the wake of Tiller's death, Drake "has gone from being outspoken to being dangerously outspoken criminally so." On The Alan Colmes Show on June 2, 2009, Drake stated that he is engaging in imprecatory prayer, praying for God to kill President Barack Obama, who he claimed needed to "turn his life around."

In 2008 he was party to a lawsuit in federal court, Captain Pamela Barnett v. Barack Hussein Obama, which claimed that Barack Obama was not an American citizen and therefore ineligible to be President of the United States. In 2008 he said that God would punish Rick Warren for agreeing to give the benediction at the inauguration of Obama, who he called an "evil illegal alien", he had used such prayers against employees of the Internal Revenue Service, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, George Tiller. In response to Drake's comments about Obama, the Southern Baptist Convention's Sing Oldham stated: "Mr. Drake does not represent Southern Baptist actions, resolutions, or positions in his interpretation and application of imprecatory prayers. Any comments made by Wiley Drake on this subject represent his personal views, not those of the Convention." Keith Olbermann, a television host on MSNBC, named Drake the "worst person in the world" in response to the revelation. On September 26, 2013, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, aka Mark Basseley Youssef, producer of an anti-Muslim film, blamed for violence in parts of the Middle East, was released from a halfway house to the custody of Pastor Wiley Drake.
