It must be your drinking supply, friend. I used to b e a practicing Christian. Really devout too. Then I kinda figured something out. Yahweh, the christian, muslim, and jewish god..Doenst' do shit. I was empty when I was serving him. Very unhappy, and thought of suicide...then I met a friend who is a pagan clergyman. He taught me a few thigns that were unrelated to his religion. He didnt' try to convert me, as christians do. I came to him, and he helped me, where as your god..well..I guess he was trying to find a another virgin to impregnate. Btw..they say Mary,as still quite young..around 14-15 when she had Jesus. That makes yahweh..a pedophile.

Wulf - Best. Post. Ever.

The ending was a little harsh but over all your core points are correct.

Good start. But I will point out that Samhain is not the longest night of the year. That falls at Yule.

and for you i'm not going to go into a fit and scream and cuss over this cause that is what you want us to do we are happy with who we are no need for you to come here and try and push us around i don't think you would do so IRL but anyway if you are so RIGHT and we are SO WRONG why would you even come here in the frist place ? the way i see it is you are looking for somthing eles and don't know how to express your self kinda like being in the closet when it come to alot of gay people before they come out or at least make that change to let people know that they feel being gay is ok they harrass gays for being out cause they them thems selfs want to be so what i am saying is i think you want to get away from this "Lord" or "God" you have been MADE to worship your whole life but don't know how let me start with read somthing and learn and don't come in here bothering good people cause your Unsure of yourself and who you are

I do hope you have a blessed life in what ever it is you do and i hope you learn how to grow up before it's to late
