Yeah, kinda reminds me of the blokes I tend to get cornered by in coffee shops. Pagan and Christian, they both have that zealous holier-than-thou type.
Blessings :)
Has to do with your alluring aura! Resistance is futile... hmm just got an image of CShine as Seven of Nine... could be something for those drunken orgies to the heathen gods... just saying maybe have a wee think about it and we might make a convert out of The Real Morgan!! ;)

I don't think I'd want someone like TRM. That kind of rabid fanaticism isn't healthy, no matter what the subject of the fanaticism is.

I can only type of my own experience. I am a former recovering christian from the past and I found my earth based religion that I am happy with. The most wonderful fun loving people are PAGANS. We have gatherings, share information, that I have incorporated into my own beliefs by sharing. There has never been a argument among us or prejudgement of each other, unlike christian belief from biblical interpretation that I have arth childbeen to in the past part of my life. The Pagans that I have encountered throughout my life are an inspiration to me. I also know christians who are nonprejudgemental too. When there is a crisis in one of our lives the pagans are the first to jump in for help that is genuine. I am truly one blessed earth child. Thank you.

Thanks for the compliment SW :) But... DaBroad is right, that sort of person needs some time figuring things out on their own and to learn to be part of a community (and maybe group therapy!)- not a mentor or teacher. Also, there is more risk of the obsession transfering to a person.

Thank you for sharing that. I have always counted myself blessed to not only have awesome and amazing coven members and Pagan friends in the area, but that the Christians in my life are all very tolerant and compassionate people.

I was just poking some light-hearted fun at the situation, not sincerely recommending that we convert this gentleman. That said DaBroad and yourself are quite right such blind obsession wouldn't be really conducive to developing one's personal relationship to the Gods.

I once heard, "If you put 15 Wiccans in a room and asked them what they believe, you would get 20 different answers." You are free to believe or not believe anything you want. Many choose a specific diety as a patron, but I don't think this necessary. The only reason I can think of that it must be done, is if you are a member of a coven which does rituals based on a certain diety. Otherwise, don't let anyone tell you want to do and do not need to choose. You are free to make that decision. Gods bless!

As far as deities...I've had Dagda and morrigan adopt me as of late, and often bridgit. Ironically, it was the norse god tyr, and freya, that gave me my Circle names, of Noble. Gods are like teachers in life. They'll come and go as you need them. Some may stay longer, and others, may only last a few minutes. I remember one time, when I had a patient coding, and pretty muching dying on me, I called upon Charon, and Azrael, to ease their suffering, and help them over. Maybe I'm A lil odd..but..it's my opinion, that the gods come and go as they please..

Satan is a Christian Creation and you can keep him. We do not need a paranoid creation of supreme evil and eternal damnation to scare us into doing the right thing and help others. We choose to do the right thing and love our brothers and sisters because it IS the right hing and it feels good to do it.

Because witches have been persecuted for so many centuries, we believe in religious freedom first!

Blessed Be!

Well if it isn't Real Morgan Jones. I was talking to Jesus the other day and he said he was pissed at you for impersonating a fundie. Said you need to call him right away.

Real Morgan Jones is harmless... he's actually kind of funny. Spends his time going from forum to forum taking a contrarian point of view... pretending to be a fundie on a Pagan site or an anti-gun activist on a love it or leave it site. Then he exposes himself, has a laugh on everyone he upset and runs away.

I am 19 I have always had a close relationship with the night so to speak and the elements. I have only considered myself Wicca tho for about a year. I have been reading a book called Nocturnal Witchcraft by Konstantinos and it's pretty good but I learn better face to face.
When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

Best of luck to you.
