this is a disgrace to Christians and Catholics everywhere. Jesus Christ came to give us light the light of truth and simplicity. The Druids and pagans are a form of Satanic worship and open the people up to darkness and satanic spirits flying about their homes.

Hi, Elizabeth.(Lovely name you have there!)

I have the utmost respect for Jesus Christ as a man (rather than the supposed son of God) but I do not believe he would have approved of the monster that Christianity turned into. I believe the man was actually a rebel against organised religion.

I certainly do not think he would approve of the bigotry so often displayed by so called 'Christians' against people such as myself who choose to follow a religion far older, and far more relevant to the land on which we live than the Middle eastern teachings you subscribe to.

There is absolutely nothing evil or Satanic about pagan beliefs.

Did you know that the original stories from the Old Testament, are actually the remnants of watered down stories that were originally taken from pagan mythology? The Goddess was effectively airbrushed out and the stories manipulated to suit chauvinist rulers of different ages.

Your religion has it's roots in pagan beliefs, so please, don't throw mud at me and my fellow pagans for following the path we choose.

Happy Solstice to you!

This is pure evil and demonic. Only devil worhippers celebrate Winter Solstice. This is an event celebrated in the Occultic/Satanic calendar. Druids are the Satan's agents and they performed horrifying human sacrifices.

I think you'll find that Druidic beliefs predate the concept of Satan by quite a few thousand years.

There was no Satan in the original stories on which the Old Testament is based. The character is an invention by those who wished to conceal the presence of the Goddess Astarte form the scriptures. They turned her into the demon Ashtaroth, who then became synonymous with Satan.

All of this has absolutely nothing whatsoever with Druidic beliefs.

The Druids worshipped Samhain - the demonic god of death.

Again, your religion has nothing whatsoever to do with mine.

You worship a Middle Eastern fire god.

That's fine. I respect your choice, but please don't fall into the trap of thinking your beliefs have any relevance to mine, because they don't.

Druids performed ritual human sacrifice and cannibalism.

According to new archaeological digs, the Druids were involved in ritual human sacrifice, as well as in potential acts of cannibalism. Julius Caesar, the Roman emperor who led the first invasion of Britain, in 55 AD, wrote in his journal: the native Celts "believe that the gods delight in the slaughter of prisoners and criminals, and when the supply of captives runs short, they sacrifice even the innocent."

The Roman soldiers that returned from that campaign brought back with them terrible stories about the high-ranking priests and their atrocities. Some accounts had it that the Druids even engaged in acts of cannibalism against their victims.

One of the most compelling pieces of evidence of such an act is the 2,000-year-old mummified body of Lindow Man, most probably a Druid nobleman, who was killed around mid-first century. The forensic analysis of the body has established that he was hit in the head with a club twice, then strangled with a rope, and then cut around the neck with a ceremonial dagger. His sacrifice is believed to have been made for the Celtic gods, so that they would stop the Roman advance on the island of Great Britain.

In another find, 150 skeletons have been discovered in a cave in Alveston, England, dating back to roughly the same period of Lindow Man. Archaeologists suspect that the killings were religious in nature, and say that all of the victims were murdered by a fatal blow to the head, which split the skull in two and destroyed the brain. What some uphold is that evidence of cannibalism can be found on one of the bones recovered from the cave, which has a crack in it that is very similar to the one modern humans make in animal bones they eat in order to suck out the marrow.

First-century historian Pliny the Elder went further, suggesting the Celts practiced ritual cannibalism, eating their enemies' flesh as a source of spiritual and physical strength.

The Stonehenge was actually the site of ritual human sacrifice.

Excavations in the 20th century have uncovered several skeletons at the site; the victims of ritual human sacrifice. Even though modern day Neopagans/Wiccans portray their gods as peace loving and friendly, Celtic gods were actually blood thirsty and demanded human sacrifice. The Celtic god Teutates (also called Albiorix and Toutorix) was regarded as the Celtic equivalent to Mars and Mercury, and the superstitious Celts thought he could only be appeased by a blood sacrifice. Taranis, Celt god of lightning, was also appeased with human sacrifices of human beings being burnt alive. Esus was a usually pictured as a bull with three canes flying over him and is sometimes identified as Cernunnos. He was the god of the underworld and also of wealth. He too demanded human sacrifice like Teutates and Tarnis, but his victims were hung to death on trees instead. How ironic indeed Wiccans somehow think their Celtic gods and goddesses were "peace loving" and the God of the Christians was brutal!

These druids and pagans are at pains to convince us people of Jesus Christ the Messiah that their satanic evil, human sacrificing disgusting beliefs are somehow 'ok' in a live and let live attitude. That is why the West is losing and will continue to lose.
no, it is not ok. it is not ok to worship Demonic Druids practices. i don't care if druids predated christianity. the father of the druids was Satan himself. it is not relative. islam has a point to be intolerant of people 'not of the book' because it leads to evil spirits possessing and inhabiting you. Christianity is the path of right. there are no others except the other two major religions which expressly state that a wife must be a helper to her husband and let him rule. This Satanic Druids and pagans say god is a woman. this is heresy and should be banned. marriage like religion is not relative. there are absolutes in this world. right is right and wrong is wrong paganism is evil and same sex marriage is evil too.
No relativism to pander to the deviants.

Haha! You dolts are as bad as muslims.

Listen, human sacrifice is not part of my belief system (unlike yours), nor is it for any other pagan I know of.

Maybe it was for superstitious folk in ancient times, but I can assure you our beliefs are allowed to evolve and are not set in stone like yours.

Tell me, as good followers of YAHWEH, have you killed your first born sons and given them to your god in his preferred form of burnt offerings? If not, why not?

The Old Testament speaks of your god as a terrible tyrant, so please, don't get it into the old 'my god's better than your god' game with me.

...because you'll lose.

Ignoring your infantile 'Satanic' jibe, I think you'll find that absolutely no druids and/or pagans believe God is female.

Most of us believe the Goddess is female, however.

As for being banned, are you actually serious? If you are, then you are of the same mentality that is responsible for turning most Islamic countries into third world cesspools.

The Western World needs people like you like a hole in the head.

I see you really aspire to your namesake.

The difference, my fundamentalist ignoramus is that we live in a Democracy (you might want to try it sometime) & not a crumbling society riven by ranting christian fascists.
We in the free world await the day when the United States throws off the shackles of C17th religious dogma and joins the modern world.

Til then your impotent rantings are as much use as a chocolate fireguard...

England is the mother country of Satanism and Scotland is an occult center. The British Royal Family have long been involved with the occult. They have also been actively involved with Freemasonry. Queen Elizabeth II is known as the Queen of Babylon and London is the modern Babylon.

British MI6 has been a major vehicle for the Satanic hierarchy working behind the secret veil of Freemasonry to control world events. British MI6 is the most secret intelligence organization in the world. In regards to Freemasonry, the lower level Masons by their dues and activities are unwittingly supporting an organization that is led by Satanists at the top.

After you get knighted by Queen Elizabeth II, you recieve the title of "Sir".

The title "Sir" comes from the word "Osiris".

Ancient Egyptians worshipped Satan under the name of Osiris.

Osiris is Satan.

Freemasonry is actually a worship of Lucifer, the Light-Bearer; of course, since Lucifer and Satan are Biblically the same person, Freemasonry is really the worship of Satan.

Osiris is Lucifer.

My word, Mr Skier.

You don't half spew a load of irrelevant nonsense.

It's clear you don't understand the first thing about ancient pantheons, nor where your own religion comes from.

You really believe this twaddle?

I think i've found the impossible - a Canadian who can make even the most inbred, seven-toed Alabama redneck look like an Oxford scholar.

'Sir' is a contraction of 'Seuir' which is a contraction of 'seigneur' meaning Lord. All these titles are derived from the Latin 'senior' for 'elder'.

Satan is a contraction of 'Shaitan' meaning 'adversary' in Arabic. The word Satan was unknown by western christians til the crusades.

Whilst your posts are entertaining in an incredulous & baffling way, you really do need to get outside and visit a library.

Put down your King James Version (written to validate a homosexual Scot) and log off your conspiracy websites. Put on your tinfoil hat and try the real world.

Don't try speaking to women yet though - you're obviously not ready for that yet..
