Yes, a very good article.

It's pretty sad that he has to be concerned about people following him because of the bumper stickers.

This is why I don't advertise...

Good article. People fear what they don't understand. Wonder how many know that much of the Catholic religion has been influenced by Paganism.

I found the article to be very informative. I am usually very critical of organized religion, but reading this really opened my eyes. It is really a shame that people have to live in fear. I, for one am very intrigued.

Generally speaking I don't think reality calls for a religious attitude toward it. Figure living in it's enough. However, might as well worship this stuff if you gotta worship anything. They probably having fun, and not at somebody else's expense.

Yes, open, open mind, to evil.

"Pagan and proud," "Child of the Goddess" and "Protected by witchcraft."

I prefer the fish with DARWIN spelled in the middle.

Bible thumpers think you're one of them, until take a minute to read the sybmol.

Just because you don't understand it, you simply just put it off as evil. What a sheltered world you must live in.

I'm not so sure I'd be quick to judge there.

The Romans were Pagan before being converted to Christianity. Who says that they didn't carry over some of their rituals.

It is really sad when you don't even know the history of your own religion. Many of the things you hold near and dear have Pagan roots.

It is you who is in the dark. Try reading the Bible, we Christians are not pagans, it is you tree huggers who are pagans....and you satan worshipers who pass on these lies!

Instead of reading a book of fiction, written by men to invent a new religion most of which was borrowed from other religions you should try picking up a history book or better yet read the actual writings of your early church. There is nothing more frustrating than an ignorant bible thumping christian. As far as Satan goes that is a boogy man invented by your religion to keep the masses under control.

Actually there is nothing more frustrating than religious kooks period, regardless of their choice of deity.

By kooks I mean to refer to those who can't keep their religion to themselves but feel compelled to spread their brand of the "word".

Personally, I love it when good Christians(you know who you are)come to my door spreading their faith and trying to convert me. The hounds really love the exercise.
