How can I lie about your religion when everyone in it morphs it to a different shade of favoritism???
It's the craziest religion ever!
The goddess loves sex, just because you say so!!!

You're lying again.

For example, I didn't say the Goddess loves sex. And no, everyone does not "morph it to a different shade of favoritism".

That's it's a crazy religion, is merely your opinion. I really don't care if you think so.

This one knows her stuff. Tell them that the goddess is behind her plans and that the goddess is in favor of sexual pleasure, and ya got it made!

Her goddess is a "sweetheart" compared to those other "cranky" gods.

Faith in the Goddess is Growing

Is America losing faith? Not, apparently, faith in the Goddess, as Wicca and Paganism seem to be growing while everything else is fading.

YOU are the fraud.
What difference does it make to you why I like Starhawk's work?
Hahahahahahahaha

My guess is, if I stated that my god hated sex, Bitner would get all cranky on me ... but she laps up that goddess-love-stuff as the best thing since mashed potatoes.

Women should not need a goddess to feel empowered.

All humans should feel whole without being dependent on any religion.

The Goddess Empowers Women

The Goddess is deep compassion--but she's not always sweet. She empowers us to be strong as well as kind, wild as well as nurturing. Ultimately, she is nature herself, the great cycles of birth, growth, death and regeneration that move through all of life.

The goddess does not judge. She seems to be just an impartial figure-"head."

Forgiveness and Learning

The Goddess does not preside over a system of reward and punishment. Our framework for spiritual growth and ethical behavior is one of learning

From the Pagan perspective, it’s all poetry.

Wow. Do you ever read beyond the first sentence or two? Do you understand that the statement was not literal? No, you probably don't. Your reading comprehension sucks.

That was Miriam's complete quote.

There was no other sentence.

MY MY ... you are almost as defensive of Miriam's literature as the Christians are of their bible, and I don't wonder why.

Why do you care so much how I read anything? All Wiccans take their own meanings from her literature.

If that were not so, there couldn't BE Christian-Wiccans ... could there Bitner???

You naughty witch!

NEW YORK — For the first time in its history, the United States does not have a Protestant majority, according to a new study.

Among the reasons for the change a spike in the number of American adults who say they have no religion.

Pew study, released Tuesday, found that about 20 per cent of Americans say they have no religious affiliation, an increase from 15 per cent in the last five years.

No it was not the whole thing. There was an entire article. The fact that you don't even read the things you're using as a source speaks volumes about your dishonesty.

Defensive? Against lies? Damned straight. Doesn't matter what your lying about. I will call you out every time I see you do it. And the fact is, I've ALSO called you out on lies about what the bible says, and what Christians say. That you want to pretend it's only Wiccans ALSO speaks volumes about your dishonesty.

I doubt that "Starhawk's" goddess would ever "curse" her on any occasion whatsoever. That goddess is a REAL sweetie! Just ask Bitner.

I’ve had losses and disappointments, but they are far outweighed by the gifts the Goddess has blessed me with.

Why? Because you are deliberately twisting what you read. That's why. It's your dishonesty that is the problem.

Her writings have nothing to DO with Christian Wiccans, June. You're deflecting.

You lying sack of shit.

Then either you're being deliberately dishonest, or you failed to understand what you read.
