Catholic Church Waging War on Women and Gays

“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”

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs - and told them they should also inform patients of the ... via Fables of the reconstruction

The Buddha also believed that women had to reincarnate as men, or they could never make it to Nirvana.

Men had more brute strength, so it is common sense that the men were the leaders of the packs and the women knew their places.

The goddesses of ancient believers were soft and loving home maker-types, and if necessary could be supporters of their warrior husband-gods.

The gods and goddesses played the roles alotted to them by the story-tellers and/or script-writers in each culture.

The deities simply reflected what was going on IN the cultures of every era.

Because the people in general in Gardner's era were homophobic, Gardner's imaginary goddess reflected that homophobia.

Then the loose morals of 1960s overthrew Gardner's goddess and the wild pot-smoking believers replaced his goddess with their own goddess who didn't give a rat's ass who slept with whom, as long as it was consensual!

Again ... the imaginary goddess that morphed from one supposed point of view to another, simply reflected what was going on in the culture at the time.

Many nuns now demand equal rights, and want to be members of the hierarchy.

In the old days, the men could keep them where the men were certain they belonged.

But the modern-day women are feminists, and they no longer want to take second-place to the men.

The goddesses are becoming cranky and unruly, as they also want their divine place in the sun, side by side with the men.

Religion is going all to hell!

When people in religions play with words, they use the words to their own advantages.

The ancients seemed to use the word "sorcerer" as one who knew and could connect with spiritual sources, hold conferences with the ones in power and make deals to protect the people in the specific cultures.

But at least some of the North American tribes, used the words medicine-man as honorary tributes, and sorcerers as evil-spirits that could bring sickness to the people.

Catholics used the word witch and heretic in the sense of evil-doers, and created the words pope, bishop, priest, etc. as honorary words.

What OH what would people do in their religions without words???

Wherever he sat, and for however long ... it didn't help him to figure out that he was just another mortal human full of nonsensical ideas that lead nowhere but to stupidity!

To stretch the stories beyond any recognition of common sense, is the "calling" of those in religion.

In fact, when an Indian medicine-man acquires or exercises his powers, the mythical protectors are a positive reality to him.

To an outside observer of such myths, they probably seem very strange ... but it seems that myths NEVER seem strange to those that invest faith IN the myths.

The fundamental antithesis is between life and death; it can be transposed by interpreting the first term as agriculture (source of life) and the second as war (source of death). A ‘mediatory notion’ between agriculture and war can be found in the idea of a scalp, since a scalp is ‘the harvest of war’; that is why, in myths, scalps produce dew.

Not from your perspective! But from my perspective, unless you agree TOTALLY with my perspective, your perspective is a total mess!

Hahahahahahaha

Dealing with illusion is all about perspective and how illusion affects those with perspectives.

Rick Santorum just seems out of touch on every issue, from rights for women and gays to the environment. "He's referred to climate change as a "hoax" and once said, "We were put on this Earth as creatures of God to have dominion over the Earth, to use it wisely and steward it wisely, but for our benefit not for the Earth's benefit."

It's also difficult to take David Suzuki's environmental preaching in a serious manner ... as he pollutes just as much as the next person.

Damn this is a crazy world, and I'm doing my part to keep it that way.

Your religion is also based on lies. Had you been a REAL Wiccan, you would be a homophobe as was Gerald Gardner.
Instead, you want to play cute and innocent, as do all people in preferential religious cults!
My guess is, you became a Wiccan to play at witch-games and have sex as it pleased you.
You never "studied" Wicca at all.

And I am a real Wiccan. You don't have the knowledge, experience, or authority to say otherwise.
