“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

The Wiccan witch I met just once, I hear via the grapevine, spends more time at the pharmacy than most anyone I know.

Her spiritual "links" and knowledge of potions must not be working very well.

And Christians are just as often in the pharmacies as is the Wiccan witch.

The spiritual "healing" business doesn't seem to be UP to much!

The gods and goddesses are letting their followers DOWN!

My guess is, it's the idea of casting spells that young people believe real that is a big lure to Wicca.

"If I learn to be a witch, I also can cast spells that have power to bring me what I want in life."

Suckers abound!!!

So if back then you were happy to see people who posted lies on the forum, why aren't you happy to see a liar on the forum NOW???
You're quite the piece of work Bitner.
You never welcomed any of the Catholics that were anti-gay, or anti-abortion ... EVER ... not then, not now.
You just started calling me a liar when I started scrutinizing Wicca ... your PET cult. And ever since that time, you were not happy about anything I posted.
However, you and your cranky self ARE lots of fun.
:)
Wrong. I call you a liar when you lie.

Your deflection is showing.

You were intent on throwing the "physicians" under the bus by insisting they weren't following the law, but were purposefully neglecting the woman!
Her family thought otherwise. They put the blame where it belonged, on the Catholic enforced law.

You're comparing apples to oranges. Me putting blame on those specific people is not comparable to you throwing all homosexuals under the bus by hoping they don't win court cases against those who use hate speech that can cause them harm. Nothing comparable there, just more deflection from you.

Her family is entitled to their opinion. And I'm entitled to mine. Stop whining like a baby.

Rather than choosing the word "denominations" (which has association with Christianity) the Wiccans chose the word "traditions," which has association with ancient tribes.

In most traditions the universe is described as having passed through an initial phase in which the populations consisted of animals and occasionally of seemingly anthropomorphic creatures who behaved like men, but at the same time played the part of demiurges and ‘transformers.’

Why didn't you EVER call me a liar back then, before I studied Wicca???

Why were you ALWAYS happy to see and read my posts back then???

Why didn't you claim that I was mentally ill back then, before I studied Wicca???

I can understand how in ancient history, shamans, witches, medicine men, preachers of the countless religions could fool people with tall tales of how the universe began, etc.

But in this era of scientific advancements, how a new religion such as modern Paganism with its witchery nonsense could spring up and be so popular, makes it plain that people relate to con games and will fall for a line, as long as it gives them emotional highs in return.

From the book compiled by Larousse … World Mythology

North America

Bella-Coola Indians account for this lack of differentiation between the animal and the human by saying that men were created in heaven and at the command of the creator chose the form in which they would inhabit the world—for example, as a raven, eagle, grizzly bear or brown bear.

The major hero varies according to the individual regions and their geographical and cultural divisions

Native Indians believed that all life was sacred to the deities.

And yet, most tribes were warring with other tribes.

Religion splits the thinking into compartments and one compartment best have no association with another compartment.

If the compartments were allowed to join as a whole, confusion would arise, and the beliefs would war with each other.

And that is probably why many in religion went insane while trying to make sense out of utter nonsense!

It's human nature to want to perceive the self as "special."
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>

Like the Indians who claim to have been created after the Flood (such as the Crow tribe quoted above), any tribe that associates its own beginnings with the emergence always claims to have held the place of honour in that arrival upon earth.

At what point in history, humans connected the idea that incest produced malformed babies is any bodies guess. But the study of the ancient religious myths again and again implies that incest was "taboo" and perceived in many cults as the worst "evil" of most all "evils" as being offensive to the gods.

No doubt such malformed babies put fear into believers that the gods were not pleased with their behavior.

They didn't realize that malformed babies was a result of malfunction of cells and had nothing in common whatsoever with punishment from deities.

From the etiological point of view, myths are the justification and experience of the strictest prohibitions, particularly incest.

Back in history the white Christians taught that blacks did not have "souls." It made it easy to capture those who were black and hold them in bondage as slaves. And the blind-sighted Christians with dollar-signs in their minds and ice in their hearts mentally ingested the words of the pulpit-pounding, truth-claiming preachers.

Then as those such as John Woolman (the Quaker) started to question that there was something wrong with how the scriptures were interpreted, other Christians started to question and ultimately most Christians believed that Blacks INDEED had and have "souls." YIPPEE!!!

Yet the Christians did not stop following other words of the Christian preachers in the idea that if they could be wrong about something that harmed SO many people ... maybe they could be wrong ... PERIOD!

The fact that the followers never said "Wait a minute now ... if blacks went from not having souls to having souls ... the preachers are not trustworthy!

And MEANwhile the black people paid the price for the white Christians that did not question the bible-wielding preachers.

What a shame!

Preachers of most religions NEED sin! Without sin, they would have nothing on which to point at others as evil-doers.

A short while back in history scientists could not prove that sperm and eggs from incestuous relationships sometimes caused mental and physical malfunctions in offspring ... so the sin-croppers were able to preach that incest was one of the worst offenses against "god."

But, when science proved that the sperm and egg combinations were the cause of such problems ... the preachers then had to put their focus on other supposed sins ... and homosexuals then became the prime targets of the pulpit-pounding hounds of NO mercy.

Religion is NOT good!!!

I've lived a relatively long life ... much of it studying religion from objective points of view.

I assure you, that from what I studied ... if someone is in a religious cult, the attitude is ... "What's in it for ME!"

If someone wants to convert you, or lure you with sweet-talk into his/her custom-designed cult ... I suggest you walk away, as they are up to NO GOOD!

"Come to church with us June," they said, in their sweet tones, as though butter wouldn't melt in their mouths.

But I had witnessed their behavior, and understood that they were NOT holy. They were simply mortal selfish humans ... on the TAKE!!!

Such ignorance was and still is rife!
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>

From the book, "The Way Our People Lived," ... An intimate American history, by William E. Woodward, published 1944, comes the following ...

The Puritan temperament was deeply tinctured with an inclination towards needless self-torture. Their ministers seldom preached of the joys of heaven; the emphasis in the sermon was laid on the tortures and terrors of hell. Jonathan Edwards-the most famous of colonial divines, declared that God takes delight in the suffering of poor lost sinners.

Those elected for goodness, having fought in this world against evil, would in the next life be lifted up to an infinite happiness; and, looking down out of heaven, they would realize their own ecstasy by contrasting it with the infinite misery of the sinners in the flames of hell.

None of the above had anything to do with Wicca, which you NEVER "studied". You just went looking for ammo, because I DARED to ask you, nicely, not to paint all religions with the same broad brush. And the reason I didn't ask that before you came back, is for the simple reason that you DIDN'T do so before you left.
