“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”

I wonder if there is a fine line between a REAL witch, and one that is just putting on the dog?

My guess is, famous witches such as STARHAWK, don't appreciate other witches trying to enter her halls of fame.

Religion

Witchcraft

Beliefs in witchcraft are a two-edged sword. They give answers to unanswerable questions, and this provides comfort to the community. But they can also set people against one another and provide the basis for suspicion and even paranoia. This disruption of the community can be a heavy price to pay. Still, the price must not be too high for human groups, since witchcraft, the ugly side of magic, is found almost universally.

So witchcraft HAS an ungly side???

You'd never know it, as the modern Pagans preach of gods that are filled with love.

Of course that love doesn't necessarily rub off on the witches. Just ask Bitner, and she will tell you that her religion doesn't expect her to love all others.

I used to have the impression that all religions other than the modernized Pagan religions took orders from their believers. But Bitner sure does put her gods in place when she insists they love every body, while she doesn't have to love others if and when she so chooses not to!

The problem is with all religion ... it's what it's "cracked-up" to be, and it always has a very ugly side.

Religion or no religion ... selfishness can't get beyond itself.

Miriam Simos (Starhawk) knows what lures young horny people to buy her books.

She sells them on the idea that a Goddess approves of sex.

Sexuality and Paganism

Sex, in Pagan "thealogy," is a Good Thing, a gift of the Goddess, a way we connect deeply and intimately with one another and with the great creative forces of life. Sexuality is sacred. "All acts of love and pleasure are my rituals," says the Charge of the Goddess, one of our most beloved liturgies.

Some religions teach that pride is the deadliest sin of all sins, and yet those within the religion don't see that when they brag of knowing the future, that THAT is a huge claim based on nothing but arrogant pride.

Bitner's words

Do I believe the Divine loves me? Of course. I believe the Divine loves you, too. We are to hold all life to be sacred, but that does NOT mean we have to show love for individuals.
This is not Christianity. We don't have to 'turn the other cheek'. We do not have to 'love our enemies as ourselves'.
You got it this time? I hope so, because I'm no longer playing your game of constantly repeating answers to the same damn questions, only to have you ignore my answers, twist my answers, or forget my answers. No matter how many different ways you rephrase the questions, my answer will remain the same.
So save this one.

Pagans and social justice

Generosity, justice and fairness are old Pagan virtues, and Robin Hood is one aspect of our Pagan Gods. In fairy tales, the hero/a wins the aid of fortune when she shares her loaf with a beggar or lays his cloak at the feet of a poor widow. The greedy, hoarding, grasping or jealous person ends up defeated and despised.

For Zoroastrians the history evolves from these holy wars according to a pattern of alternating decadence and renewal.

Is ZOROASTRIANISM a pagan religion?

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters

Pagan is such a broad term. Essentially all religions are "pagan" sense they are generally somewhat nature based. The concept of heaven and hell came from Zoroastrianism. As far as I am aware they place a lot of emphasis on fire, not to say that they worship it, but their main deity is a fire one. That religion actually had a huge impact on xtianity early on, but there are still lots of differences.

You claimed that I "insist" that my Goddess love everyone. That was a lie, as my post you quoted here proves.

You are a liar.

Yes, it is my BELIEF that the Goddess loves everyone. Why do you keep lying about my position?

You're a liar, that's why. It's all you've got, to try to twist my words so that you can promote your agenda.

One time you claim that what you know is a "fact" and the next time you claim that it is your belief.

To believe that your goddess loves everyone IS put forth by your insistence.

If you don't believe it is true, why would you even make such a statement?

When the Christians state that hell exists, it is because they are certain it DOES exist.

They don't say it and then use a disclaimer that it is ONLY their belief. They believe it, BECAUSE they believe it is true.

Do you believe that your belief in a goddess is based on a lie, or on truth!

You FOOL!!!

I did not. You, yourself, provided the proof. I said "I believe". That is what I told you, and I have NOT jumped "back and forth". You are a lying piece of shit.

When I believed a god existed, I believed that my belief was based on absolute truth. Otherwise I never would have believed it.

When it comes to such a belief, there is NO sitting on a fence.

Bitner claims she believes in reincarnation. Is that simply a wishy-washy belief, or is she certain that her belief is right on the mark of truth? If she doubts it, does she really believe it?

That would be like the pope saying "I believe that god exists, but it's only my belief ... and I don't know if my belief is based on truth.

Such double-talking nonsense!!!

Bullshit. It is not me "insisting" on anything.

"If you don't believe it is true, why would you even make such a statement?"

Of course I believe it. STILL not me "insisting". You're full of shit.

"When the Christians state that hell exists, it is because they are certain it DOES exist."

They are not stating that it is their belief, but are saying it is a fact. There is a difference. One that you are too dishonest to acknowledge.

"They don't say it and then use a disclaimer that it is ONLY their belief."

Of course not. They are saying it's a fact.

"They believe it, BECAUSE they believe it is true."

And I believe my Goddess loves everyone, BECAUSE I believe it is true.

"Do you believe that your belief in a goddess is based on a lie, or on truth!
You FOOL!!!"

The only fool here is you. You're a pathetic sack of crap. If I claimed that my Goddess only loved certain people, you'd be all over THAT, just like you do with Christians. But because I don't, and you can't claim that my religion is exlusive like other religions are, then you whine about THAT.

Your desperation to prove that all religions are the same, when they are clearly not, has MADE you foolish.
