I guess when you deal with evil forces one needs a tax shelter to cover funeral expences.

You know what sweet cheeks witchy woman, you are a joke. You obviously cannot have an adult conversation without resorting to making things up and implying more is there and claiming victory where none exists.
I made one simple statement of opinion, I did NOT come here looking for a brawl. YOU obviously seem to need to turn things into a fight to feed your own craving for attention. At the same time, I will not back down from attacks from the likes of you.
I am also not whining and my feelings are not hurt, not even a little. I have no idea where you are getting these assumptions from.

Also, I don't "claim" to know more atheists. I know I do. This is not really any kind of a stretch. More and more people are coming out as atheists and this should not be much of a surprise. More and more people are realizing that the whole concept of religion, believing in a god, and following rules written by strange men. Some of us do not need a set of rules in a fiction book (ie: Bible, Koran, Torah, etc) to know how to live a good life and be good people. And like I said before, the stigma of non-belief is (thankfully)lifting more and more every day.

So......if you can have an adult conversation with facts and details rather than simply claiming to win or hurt my feelings, reply back. Other than that don't bother.

Be careful Jumper, our little witchy woman will give you negative judges if you say anything she disagrees with. Please don't do anything rash. You may need to seek therapy or counseling to ease the pain. LOL!!

Well, with a name like Kathwynn, and you acting like a little girl it is a logical mistake to make. And can't a woman be a priest? Is it mandatory to be called a priestess? Again, an honest mistake that you are trying to capitalize on. Sucks for you it only makes you look silly.
I don't really think that warrants calling me an ass or a fool, but hey, if that's they way you want to play that's fine with me. I would think a "man of the cloth" would act a little more civil than that, but then again, you are a witch, so maybe you folks are not as nice?

For like the sixth time, I did not come into your "room" looking for a fight. YOU posted to a board about a place 1000 miles away from you. I posted an opinion about a local story, plain and simple. If you want to fight (as you obviously do) let's go. Just try not to act like the childish jerk you've been acting like.

So watcha got? Throw some religious bullshit at me. Tell me how all the silly things you believe in are all true and facts. Tell me how I am a fool for not believing in ghosts, fictional stories, fairy tales and the flying spaghetti monster.

I really don't know much about Wicca. Tell me all about it. What is it that you find SO fascinating about being a witch? You do call yourselves witches, right? Or are you a warlock? Can I call you Winter Warlock like from that Rankin/Bass Christmas show from when I was a kid? PLEASE!! That would be so cool. HAHAHAHAHA

Oh, and Jumper called you a woman as well, and he claims to know you. Does that make him a fool and a horse's ass also?

Jumper is a troll.. And he does not know me.. Nor thankfully do I know the person that has the nick jumper. I have no idea if jumper is male female or his/her age. though from the way the fool posts I would suspect a kid of about 14....

but hey you want to be a fool come into a room swinging and then whine about how you were treated.. Well, why not be the fool. You can only make a bigger horses @ss out of yourself believing anything jumper posts.

Unlike christians I do not give a [email protected] what you believe or do not believe. Wiccans do not proselytize... Unlike christians I neither have the time. Nor will make same for any one that is as a big of a fool as you proved to be here.. So whine on....

Oh and by the way.. A Priestess is a woman A Priest is a man.. There is no such thing as a warlock in Wicca. And a witch can be either be male or female.. Just so that we are clear.. Now back to your whining.

I'm kind of offended here Kathwnn.

"...So whine on.... "
"...Now back to your whining."

I was not before, but I am now swinging. Thing is you are not swinging back. All you keep doing is blathering on about how I am whining and how you think I am somehow looking foolish. The only thing that is making me look foolish is bothering with messing with the likes of you.

Please, go back into all my posts in this thread and show me where I am whining. I am actually very curious as to what you are referring to.
You know what, forget it. Just make a few more snide comments about how I am a fool and how you are showing me up. HAHAHAHA. That's much more funerer. HAHAHA

Jeeze, I though this would be a lot more fun that it is proving to be. Just proves, like in your very first reply to me, that you are simply another angry fringe religious nutjob that will use offense as your defense since you have no valid arguments to begin with.
I don't even know how to make fun of your religion. You are doing a better job of looking like an idiot all by yourself. Do you guys prance around a cauldron like in the cartoons? Do you believe in a mythical creature in the sky? Or do you believe in Ra the Sun God or some shit like that?
Well Winter Worlock, hopefully you can argue like a man and not just claim victory when you are just talking out your ass.

Still having no valid reply other than your own delusional accomplishments?

Here's whining: WAAAAAAAAAAA....Winter Worlock made me look dumb. WAAAA. He's sooooo cool. He always repeated the same crap and doesn't say anything valid. WAAAAA.
He's no fun to play with because he's so vapid. WAAAAAAA.

So tell me then, how do you feel about companies like Ikea who set up their corporations as non-profits to shed tax burden? Isn't your little witch coven the same basic thing? Aren't ALL religions the same thing?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
