I'm so sick of "Ohhhh...must not offend the Xtians" but do they give other religions equal status ? Of course not. Their way is the only way. #
'em and the horses they rode in on.
I do not read "Religious Right" there...I read "Xtians"...
Let's turn the tables a little, Jungle Jake...tell me, what do you think truthfully of Pagans, Wiccans, etc etc ? I bet you are taught that we are
all baby killers and horrid evil demonic things, are you not ? Well, if you are and you buy into it, then I submit that you are indeed the bigot, not
I, and that YOU are the one who is cutting out potential friends from your life.
More bigotry. Because I'm a Christian, I have these views. Well, sorry, not the case. Here at work I have a friend who is very obviously a pagan, she
says so, tells us about the equinox celebrations, celebrations to the moon. She wears a pentagram. She has dragons and pagan icons all over the place
on her desk. She practices magic. She's a friend.
My aunt, Terry, who took the name Tiyi after an Egyptian God or Spirit (I can't remember which) is a dear aunt to me. We have long, intelectual
conversations every time she is in town, or when I go to Michigan to talk with her.
On another note, I was not raised Christian. My father was Christian, my mother a fortune teller. She used terrot, animal cards, astrology, etc. If
you want an idea of which I connected with, check out the thread "Seeds of Homosexuality". It was not until 3 years ago (I'm 25) that I came to
Christ, after a lot of research into many religions and a lot of soul searching. Before I was an evangelical athiest. Now I'm an evangelical
Christian. I have to say, a lot of people were a lot happier to hear me profess no God then True God...I was a lot less convincing back then.
EDIT: Both of them read this website, too. Convinced them to check it out, as long as they clicked on the google ads
Joy is thinking about
becoming a member, too. I'd have a lot of explaining to do if these were lies or exagerations.
