Some day maybe people will understand that to indoctrinate children with their favorite religion was a terrible move in the wrong direction.
Just maybe.
I can tell you, that the pleasure I got from believing that a god was real, paled in comparison to the confusion I suffered from the other things preachers tried to put into my psyche.
I'm thankful now that they never were able to convince me that I was any more special than non-human forms of life.
VERY thankful indeed!
Ah, well, my kids were fortunate that way. Wicca doesn't teach that humans are more special than any other form of life.

Of course, I grew up Catholic, and was not the least bit traumatized by it. I just stopped believing it.

As you know I believe in and worship God. speaking from that perspective, it seems to me that Jones' followers worshiped him, not God. They obviously would follow him anywhere and did.
People who put that much faith in other people will end up in trouble.
They believed he was teaching them truth.

That's the danger of religious belief.

People get caught up in the euphoric nonsense, and their minds begin to dwell in fantasies of grandeur.

No doubt you picture yourself in "heavenly bliss with Jesus."

Leaders of cults captivate your thinking by telling you what you DESIRE to hear.

The word theology means to study religion ... not to believe that one can graduate to teach religion as even a semblance of being based on truth.
That is simply arrogance!
Study limits people to the level "of" study ... period!
Learning never stops. That doesn't mean that nothing has been learned along the way.

You're insane. You really are. The twists your mind has to take to come to these asinine conclusions proves it.

You teach that non-human animals only incarnate ONCE ... and humans incarnate many times.

You don't have a clue that what you are teaching has any basis concerning truth ... yet you are PROUD to be a teacher.

Of course you stopped believing it, or you wouldn't have left it.

And you stopped believing it because it didn't please your desires. In other words they didn't tell you what you wanted to hear.

I don't care if they paint themselves blue and worship stop lights.
Yeah....I don't know any Pagans who paint themselves blue. I think that kind of went out of fashion around the time of King Arthur. Unless of course they're sports fans, and their favorite team's colors include blue :)

As for stop lights, well I AM rather fond of the green ones, but I wouldn't say I worship them. Although, now that I think about it, I DO pray to see them, lol.

Bitner would never have been a Catholic nun. And she couldn't be a Catholic priest.

Wicca allows Bitner to preach and that makes her feel the same type of power that Billy Graham felt when he held the bible in front of others and they looked up to him as being filled with "the DIVINE."

June, why do you bother asking me questions when you just forget or ignore my answers.

The fact that the Spirits of other life forms (not just animals, either) don't have to incarnate more than once, is NOT because humans are "more special". Damn, woman, YOU are the one who seems to believe it's a PUNISHMENT that humans Spirits would have to reincarnate. And NOW you're trying to pretend it's what, a REWARD for being "more special" than any other life form?

Do you even KNOW what you're arguing about? You are just taking an opposing position to me, JUST because I'm religious, and you're stupidly contradicting yourself to do so.

You're dumb as a box of hair. Seriously.

Yes, I AM proud, of ALL my accomplishments. There is nothing wrong with that. Again, I'm sorry you have no accomplishments to be proud of, but that's not my fault.

I stopped believing because it made no sense. How is that any different from YOU when YOU stopped believing? How?

They worshiped JIM JONES.

Nonsense. Stop pretending you know my mind. For someone who's always complaining about others not saying "I don't know", you sure don't practice what you preach.

If you don't "know the mysteries", and can't tell "the future", you most certainly can't read my mind, Fraud.

It made no sense to you that women couldn't be equal to men and teach religion, rather than scrubbing up behind the men.

You are now a supposed teacher, rather than a door mat to men.

They worshipped the image of Jim Jones as a HOLY teacher. Had they not, they would not have followed him and taken their families into the jungle in Guyana.

You underestimate the power of self-hypnosis.

Of course you ARE.

Anyone who teaches religion is a theologian.

They use different titles, but they all believe they are qualified to teach what others don't know.

However, many preachers now admit that they don't know, and so they are leaving the churches in droves.

Those are the ones that have been somewhat self-humbled.

He was godlike to them. He found a bunch of insecure unhappy people and made himself a god to them. Manson was the same type of personality and had great influence over the same type of followers.
