appologize in advance for posting this in more than one thread, however, it seems appropriate to make this point here as well:
To all who "participate" in discussions with Free Mason:
You may as well stop any pretense that this is actually a discussion. Mr. Free Mason is not open to discussion or debate, but dispute with any and all who may show up. He is certain that his view is the only appropriate view, and will argue his point ad-nasueum.
The "online discussion forum" phenomenon has seen his ilk time and time again. Experience has shown that the best strategy is to ignore the posts of these people with internalized grandeur intent on disruption, not discussion. (Free Mason, it may be entirely possible you do not even realize this aspect of your personality.) In time, he will either move on or learn to participate in a discussion whereby his own opinion is open to change.
Consider the potential motives of Mr. Free Mason when becoming involved in threads of his making.
One of the Greater Sabbats. Commonly known as Halloween. Wiccans say farewell to the God as he travels through the underworld to be reborn at Yule. This was traditionally a time of sacrifice, as livestock were slaughtered to ensure food throughout the winter. The God fell as well to ensure our continuing existence. This is a time of reflection and coming
to terms with the one thing in life which we have no control - death. This is a time of remembrance of their ancestors and all those who have gone before. This holiday marks the end of the old year and the beginning of the new, and is frequently thought of as the Pagan new year.
