Perhaps your children saw that your religion is based on the distortion of "pagan" traditions.
They don't see it that way.

<quoted text>We were talking about before abortion was legalized. Thanks to RvW, women don't have to hide and endanger their lives, and there is legal recourse against medical malpractice against abortion providers. Thank you for helping make that point. Well done!
How does your comment relate to reporting of whether or not abortion deaths were reported?

Well thank God I haven't had to deal with this problem. My kids all believe in one God and He is important to them. They are all raising their children to believe in God too, so I guess we are a family of "bigots".
Your religion doesn't make you a bigot. Your prejudice does.

It is interesting that most of you proabort pagans end up having bad marriages, ex-marriages or no marriages and just screw and end up haitng your kids like "I AM NOT A WOMAN" Ocean.
Actually, what's even more interesting is how you fundies find it necessary to stay in bad, loveless marriages, because some dumb-ass 2000 years ago said that marriage is "for better or for worse," but didn't define what's "better" and what's "worse."

Care to partake of the same table as us "pagans" (as your Jeebus did) and enlighten us on the concept of "for better or for worse[?]"

Yes they do and that's why they need a strong foundation of morals and values to fall back on. It gives them a conscience which enables them to know when they are on the wrong path.

Thanks for your good wishes and same to you.

Apparently you are unaware that there ARE many different varieties of Paganism. Paganism is not a religion itself, it is an umbrella term.

Wicca acknowledges that there is one Divine source, but that this source is seen differently by people. Wasn't it you, just a week or two ago, that I gave the diamond analogy?

<quoted text>Absolutely. Why does Lily have so much invested in your story? I wonder if she's been a not-so-loved ex-wife herself.
C'mon Elise; you know Lynne D's (a.k.a Lily) story about how she was an abused woman, who miscarried twins in a toilet because her boyfriend beat the crap out of her.

She's had a corn cob up her anus against me ever since I made that comment about woman who stay in abusive relationships. She was posting as Persevere then.

Remember?

I have a right in this country to accept or decline any religion. That doesn't make me a bigot, it makes me American.

If I choose a green sweater over a red one, does that make me bigoted or prejudice against red?

No it wasn't me.

Does your form of paganism accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior? If not you threw away Christ with the RCC.

I don't think they were doctors for the most part, providing illegal abortions that were killing women, so why not list the cause of death?
Actually, I think they were doctors. Doctors who engaged in illegal practices, who quite plausibly had very lucrative practices, and who did not want to risk losing their license over an illegal procedure that went bad. And that's why the cause of death wasn't listed.

Which proves a point; abortion has existed before it was legal, and will exist even if it is made illegal at any point in time.

Luckily for us, the latter is, more likely than not, to not happen.

You must think that every "pagan" (IE: non-christian or non-catholic) thinks the exact same thing. Try thinking outside your narrow minded POV, for once in your miserable life.

No joke! I know what would be worse for ME; being married to a regressive, male religionist NUTCASE like TomTom. The guy is hopelessly STUCK IN THE PAST, by at least two centuries if not even more.

I shudder to think what his backward views on women are at this point, and I feel sorry for ANY woman unlucky enough to be his girlfriend or wife. Thankfully, putting up with a nutcase like Tomtom on a daily basis isn't MY problem to deal with.

Of course you have that right. So do your children. I never said your choice made you a bigot. Your prejudging different religions without any real knowledge of them, and then insulting based upon those prejudgments, are what make you a bigot.

If you really perceive choosing a religion as trivial as choosing a color of sweater, then why would you object to your children choosing a different religion than yours?

Are you really this stupid? Nevermind, don't answer that, I already know.

Okay. If Deity was a giant, multifaceted diamond, with 20 people in a circle around it, they wouldn't be able to see it all. They would each be looking at a different facet, so they would each perceive it differently, each facet having different flaws or colors depending upon the light coming through it. Yet, they'd all still be looking at the same gem.

My religion accepts that Jesus is simply one aspect of the male face of Deity, another of the many sacrificed Gods throughout history.

No, I didn't not throw him away, I just worship a different aspect of the same Divine source.

My rejection was of the RCC only.

Maybe he's married to an Amish girl, or two.:)

I have adult and young children.

You are sadly mistaken if you think *because* they are adults that I don't guide them. Parenting isn't over when the child turns 18yrs old. It is a lifelong job.

Interestingly,I have learned so much from my adults children. They have strong values,they stay true to who they are/and those values/beliefs and THEY lead by example. I am quite impressed many times as to how much I get from them.

I will always be there for them and they know that I will always pray for them. They come to me daily for advice,or just to talk. Thank God I never lost that communication and bond with them :).

I feel very blessed that we are so close. I know many friends who's kids want nothing to do with them from the time they were teenagers. I find that so disheartening.

Your statement shows that you don't even know what the modern word, Pagan, means. Sad
