Ink cherry picks. All extremists do.
You dance around naked in the moonlight and have actual or imitated sexual acts as some religious rite and I am the extremist?
And what was my response? I asked you who says I dance naked in the moonlight? You then asked isn't that a Wiccan rite, and I said no. Correct?

Dancing naked in the moonlight is not the Great Rite.

Agree. Nothing to do with what I said however. You don't need to belong to any organized religion to have core beliefs.
All laws/legislation reflect some person or persons core beliefs.

I don't think she knows what religious dogma means. If she did she would see that it couldn't possibly have any influence in a secular democratic country.

Have you ever heard the term 'the four corners of the earth' any place other than the bible? I have and I didn't think it meant the earth was square.

So was her statement calling me an extremist. I admit ignorance of Wiccan rites and rituals. If she doesn't practice "The Great Rite' I believe her.
You admit your ignorance now, but I think we all know you didn't care because it was meant solely as an insult and a put-down. And so you do the very thing you complain about others doing to you.

I have a lot of patience with Bitner and her name calling. Every post to me is insulting but I usually don't answer back in kind. She has to expect at some point, a human being, even a Christian will fight back and her calling me an extremist was too much.
Bitner puts up with a lot of personal abuse on here. Do you have anything to say about the childish insults she endures about her appearance? Do you think it's okay that people on here insult her about looks and go so far as to insult her daughters as well? And you think being called an extremist compares with those kinds of abusive insults?

If we are talking about the four corners of the earth today and we do use that phrase, are we talking about a square world?
Of course not. But the Bible isn't implying the earth was square just as it was not implying it was round. Why in the world would the Bible contradict itself and confuse us like that?
If history serves me correctly, I believe the Catholic Church was in opposition to the Queen for supporting the idea and the adventure of discovery for the very reason that the Bible said "edges of the earth".

I must admit that I can't for the life of me understand why people who don't want to practice Wicca as it's described in the standard books on Wicca (Gardner, Farrar, et al) call themselves Wiccan.
Gee, I guess you don't understand deviation from the 'original iteration' of a religion, ergo, you don't understand why there are 600+ sects of Christianity itself? Lutheranism, Quakerism, Orthodoxy, Mormonism....any of these ring a bell?
Ink wrote:
<quoted text>
And so I can't for the life of me understand why there's a great objection among some to the Great Rite -- or, come to that, working skyclad.
For one thing, working skyclad is not a requirement for ritual, but an individual preference...and for another, some Wiccans live where it's frigging COLD!!
Ink wrote:
<quoted text>
But, whatever one's view, I do think it sad that people who profess an interest in Wicca are unable to conceive of a sacred rite which includes sex: that, after all, is one of the MOST sacred acts.
Sex is always sacred...it's also a LOT of fun. Also, many Christian churches don't offer communion. Methodists and Anglicans, for a couple examples. Wrap your head around that.
Ink wrote:
<quoted text>
Farrer and Farrer are a little prim on this point, it has to be said. In traditional Wicca, the participants in the Great Rite do NOT have to be married/handfasted/already having sex with each other; if that were the case, then the third degree proper would very rarely be taken.
In traditional Christianity, Christmas was not celebrated until the later part of the 13th century. Try again?
Ink wrote:
<quoted text>
But the Rite has to be between a priestess and priest who are acting AS the Goddess and God -- i.e,, it really isn't a rite to be conducted by anyone who doesn't know what they're doing -- which is why it's usually reserved for initiates of the third degree.
Quit pretending you didn't cut and paste this, or that you know what the hell you're referencing as applied to the individual practice of Wicca.
Ink wrote:
<quoted text>
Perhaps it's also worth mentioning that one of the reasons Wicca was not found to be particularly friendly to homosexual women and men is that it insists on the actual polarity of female and male within rites (even when the Great Rite is NOT being enacted there is a raising of power).
A 'raising of power' from the co-mingling of the male and the female auras, is no more or less effective or important to a Wiccan rite than is the coven. The two are just different manifestations of The Source.

You know Ink, you can be a real bitch on here sometimes, and if that comment makes you whine all the more...I don't care. It's sickening how you supposed Christians go on about all your Jesus bullshit out one side of your mouths and then you run people down every chance you get out of the other side of your mouths...and then you have the nerve to act like crybabies and complain about everyone else being insulting or bigots. Oh boo hoo hoo you poor poor Christians, but you don't mind acting like snarky bitches when it suits you though.
Exactly. They constantly piss and moan about so-called "christian persecution" ANY time one of us gives them (Knutter/sASSy/Ink/NR) a dose of well-deserved criticism, but have absolutely NO problem ragging on anyone who they disapprove of. Obviously, it's only "persecution" when THEY are being criticized.

And they wonder why almost nobody here respects them. Go figure.

Job and Deuteronomy speak about "the ends of the Earth" a handful of times.

The Holy Spirit will open up our minds and heart to the truth. Gods word is easy to understand if you allow the spirit to guide your thought-understanding process. Otherwise,you will not comprehend it as written. It's complex to those who are seeking truth. The phrases (i.e.the ends of the earth or every corner)are being taking out of context,thus changing their original meaning. I fear those doing this are just copy and pasting for their own agenda but are missing the truth. Be serious about it(in other words-learn,educate yourself about this Love story of God)or you will continue to bang your head against the wall in frustration at your confusion.

With all due respect,I was once there as well. I don't judge your ignorance,I just want you to understand that there is sanity and truth in the word of God when you are ready. I fought it as well( for my own personal reasons that had to do with my dysfunctional family lacking in a spiritual life,leaving me hopeless UNTIL I ended up on my knees in tears at the senseless existence I was living. Pray tell,I did have my good days but it didn't seem to make up for the void).

Great, you and Gtown will get along just fine. No one is saying the Bible literally describes the earth as square just as it does not literally describe the earth is round in Isaiah 40:22. So thanks for your expert opinion.
