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).

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.
Why would she find a refrence to The Great Rite or Skyclad insulting or a put down? Aren't they Wiccan practices?

If you wanted to talk to me about The Mass, I wouldn't be insulted even though you probably think it is nonsensical.

<quoted text>Not to mention that not all 'core beliefs' are restrictive and punitive in action, either.
Christian theology leans rather strongly on the "Thou shalt nots."
I much prefer "Thou shalt" as a pretext for the rule of law. As in,'Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and treat thy neighbor with respect.'
In my book, that pretty much covers everything.
Perfect. So suppose as a non-believing legislator I consider the unborn human life one of my neighbors?

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?
Not from me she doesn't. I have never said anything personal about her or her family.

And no I don't think it is okay to say such things.

Really? Bitner says it's not a Wiccan ritual.

<quoted text>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 didn 't know that the Catholic Church opposed the Queen. Where can I find that information?

<quoted text>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?
<quoted text>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!!
<quoted text>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.
<quoted text>In traditional Christianity, Christmas was not celebrated until the later part of the 13th century. Try again?
<quoted text> 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.
<quoted text>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.

Glad to find another expert to set me straight.

It's not even a ritual. It's a way some people do their rituals.
If Ink had the wit to pay attention, she'd have noticed the many times I've had to explain that we're a family Coven, and don't DO skyclad. But, she doesn't.
Who needs the chilblains, or sunburn, or mosquito bites? LOL.
A coven. Priceless.

I don't think so either because we sure are living according to someone's dogma right now. One idea that follows someone else's dogma is that the men in combat don't have a chaplin anymore.

You got an issue with that?
My how defensively confrontational you're being.
Even most of the staunchest pro choice would acknowledge that we are in fact talking about at minimum a potential human being and would agree, while supporting the right to choice, that we are dealing with a procedure that amounts at least morally, to something more than removing a splinter.
Not you though brother. You revel in your image as a soulless slug. Atta boy.

You or anyone can have a personal opinion about anything, whether it's a private medical procedure or anything else. It has no impact on your belief in the right to make your own private medical decision. She was asked her personal opinion on the procedure itself. She copped out. Simple as that.

I'm one of those weirdos who apologizes to mosquitoes before I smack 'em dead. So sue me.

You may apologize to them before you smack em dead but you still smack em dead. So obviously you DON'T respect them equally at all. Spurious fraud.

I guess that if the mother and unborn human live in same house, you would have a problem in deciding which is the more important neighbor. You would have to "choose".

I doubt that.

"The ends of the Earth" is a modern phrase. I doubt it was used 2000 years ago the same way we use it now.

Don't treat your unborn neighbor as if the woman, within whom he/she resides, is nothing more than your unborn neighbor's house, ok?

I am actually pro-choice, not just 'claiming' to be pro-choice, your word salad notwithstanding.

Morally, it's the pregnant woman's choice whether she wants to risk attempting to gestate or not. If that means she chooses abortion, fine. If she chooses gestation, also fine. Your 'morals' have nothing to do with it.

Go bounce your heels off the floor some more, gramps. The SCPL on here obviously find it highly entertaining.
