I suggest you try debating EACH point Bitner. To state that it's all crap is a cop-out, and you don't cop out on any issue ... DO YOU???<quoted text>
ROTFLMAO! Good grief, what a bunch of crap!

From my study of religious history ... the ancient Pagans were as brutal as all others in religion.
They believed in burning human animals and non-human animals in the flames as sacrifices to the gods.
They were as up-tight about sex as were the Christians and those in all other religions.
Superstition was rife and unwell!
It was Christians burning other Christians as witches in the Middle Ages ... so all that nonsense put forth by modern Pagans of Pagans being burned as witches is just THAT ... utter nonsense!
The main author of modern Paganism ... Gerald Gardner created a goddess that hated homosexuals. Alex Sanders morphed the goddess into a REAL sweetheart.
That pretty well does in modern Paganism as having any credibility whatsoever.
But once started ... the gossip of lies spread far and wide, and as occurred with all religion ... it is my guess that modern Paganism will thrive and make lots of money for those that peddle it to the gullible humans that in turn, trade thrills for money.
