THE GREAT GODDESS
In prehistoric and early historic periods of human development, religions existed in which people revered their supreme creator as female.
The Great Goddess, the Divine Ancestress, was worshiped as far back as the Upper Paleolithic about 25,000 BC -- not 7000 BC as had been previously believed by archaeologists and scholars based on archaeological evidence. The last Goddess temples were closed about 500 AD.
Little has been written about the female deities who were worshiped in the most ancient periods of human existence and still today, the material there is has been almost totally ignored.
Most of the information and artifacts concerning the vast female religion, which flourished for thousands of years before the advent of the classical age of Greece, Judaism, Christianity, was dug out of the ground after the Second World War. It is these more recent excavations which have changed our view of our most ancient history.

There is no such thing as religious freedom.You either go along with the whole point of it or you don't go along with it at all.
And, what is the "point of it" that we are supposed to go along with?
Let me guess.... Christianity. No one has the right to practice their own religion anymore. Everyone must be Christian having a Christian marriage now..
