Infamous "satanist", Aleister Crowley, considered Scotland's Boleskin House to be "the focal point of the magical energies (also called the "93 Current") of the Aeon of Horus. In this way it is similar to Jerusalem in Judaism and Mecca in Islam"
From my April post, Pennies from Heaven :
Article in today's Daily Record stating that the Kirk (the Christian Church) wish to crown Prince Charles as King of Scots in a separate coronation should Scotland become independent :
The Church of Scotland proposals would see the heir to the throne become the first monarch to be crowned north of the Border since his namesake Charles II in 1651. First Minister Alex Salmond has pledged Scotland will keep the Queen if there is a Yes vote next year.
From today's BBC, Scottish Independence : Kirk approves separate coronations :
The Church of Scotland's ruling General Assembly has approved a call to crown monarchs in both England and Scotland, should Scotland becomes independent.
Reverend Sally Foster-Fulton said it would give "an opportunity for people of all faiths and no faith to create together this civic occasion".

The civic occasion for all, that Reverend Foster-Fulton refers to, will be carried out on the Stone of Destiny. It's, if it is the real deal, currently stashed at Edinburgh Castle, having been returned to Scotland on the 101st day of 1951 - 11th April, after repatriation from England the previous year's Christmas Day. It went back to England, but was returned here on St. Andrew's Day 1996. That's the same Saint Andrew who's bones were prayed over by the Pope and now disgraced, exiled homosexual, Cardinal O' Brien, just after the Pontiff's historic and unprecedented meeting with HM the Queen, head of the Church of England, at Royal Holyrood Place in the shadow of extinct volcano, Arthur's Seat. Some say that Edinburgh city centre's extinct volcano, Arthur's Seat, resembles the Egyptian sphinx. Edinburgh Castle is built on the volcanic plug.

Also from wiki :
Some Scottish legends surrounding the Stone of Scone, traditionally used for coronations of Scottish kings in the High Middle Ages, have identified this stone with the Stone of Jacob. Supposedly the Stone of Jacob was brought to Ireland by the prophet Jeremiah and from thence to Scotland.
These legends also feature prominently in British Israelism, a set of beliefs that consider the British monarchy as the legitimate heir to the ancient Israelites. From 1308 to 1996, the Stone of Scone - identified with the Stone of Jacob - rested in the Royal throne of England at Westminster
British Israelism is something that deeply interests me, the notion that the British monarchy are God's "chosen ones", the heirs to the ancient Israelites. British Israel proponents often point to King James 6th and Ist, Bible reviser and promoter, claim that "The Lord has made me King over Israel" and his Jacobus gold coin which states the Biblical prophecy "I will make of them one nation". He certainly believed in the divine right of kings.
Something that the Kirk were due to discuss, but have not, were the claims made in a ten page report called, The inheritance of Abraham ? A report on the Promised Land , which I covered in my post Crypto Jew-ology .The report has apparently been amended although originally contained the notion that :
Possession of any land is clearly conditional. The question that arises is this: Would the Jewish people today have a fairer claim to the land if they dealt justly with the Palestinians?"
Biblical promises about the land of Israel were never intended to be taken literally, or as applying to a defined geographical territory
They are a way of speaking about how to live under God so that justice and peace reign, the weak and poor are protected, the stranger is included, and all have a share in the community and a contribution to make to it.
The 'promised land' in the Bible is not a place, so much as a metaphor of how things ought to be among the people of God. This 'promised land' can be found - or built - anywhere.
This week the Kirk approved gay ministers at their annual assembly.
In 2008, then British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, son of a minister, spoke at the christian gathering, utilising the platform to outline his vision for a "global society governed by a shared moral sense" (BBC News):
And we find that from the timeless wisdom of all the great religions - from which billions across the world derive daily inspiration - there is a consistent ethical core that propels us to act: encapsulated in the golden rule that informs not just Christianity and Judaism but also Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Islam - showing that we are not moral strangers but there is a shared moral sense common to us all
Reverend Sally Foster-Fulton was maybe thinking of that "coming together" under a "golden rule" in her aforementioned quote: "opportunity for people of all faiths and no faith to create together this civic occasion", in regard to a future coronation ?
Remember that King James was crowned in Scotland, before England, and that, according to practioners of magick like Crowley, ritual is at the very heart of their undertakings.
