The "alcun problema con questo (communicating in Italian)" is that other posters may not have a clue what you're talking about.

Are you sure you aren't a Buddhist or a Taoist?
<quoted text>
My dad is a retired Master Gunnery Sergeant of the US Marine Corps, and my mom is a pediatrician and a practicing Strega (Italian Witch), who comes from eight generations of Strega. Her mother is originally from Tuscany, where she grew up in her family's tradition. I'm ninth generation.
I find Catholicism rather intersting. On the one hand, it was the Catholic Church that started the Spanish Inquisition and the Burning Times all over Europe, which caused the fiery deaths of thousands of innocent people; yet at the same time, the Catholic Church seems so Pagan because of its reverence for the Virgin Mary--who we Strega believe is yet another representation of the Mother Goddess. My nonna has a statuette of the Virgin Mary on her altar alongside a statuette of Venus, and one of the Goddess Diana.
I have never been to New Orleans. But it sounds like a fun place; jazz, the cuisine, the people...
Bonsoir Kaitlin, I am happy that you like the quote. I live by this daily.

I am neither Buddhist nor Daoist but my soulmate and I are well traveled we have been through Africa,Europe,Latin America and through parts of Asia. Buddhism and Daoism speak of gentleness and softness overcoming force. I see the wisdom is this. They also speak of mercy and compassion. I believe these traits are universal. We lived amongst in our time amongst Hindus,Buddhists,Muslims,Wicca ns and atheists as well as agnostics. And we all learned from eachother as it should be consider the story of the Good Samaritan we all should be this way, this to me is what Christianity is simply.

My parents are from an old, New Orleans Creole family that date back to the Colonial period. My parents taught me everything I need to know in regards to human nature and people. They are antiquarians I am an art restorer and my soulmate is a linguist. There are still Strega in Italy to this day we have lived amongst them as well. They were surprised to know my husband cooks very well, we are internationalist in our outlook on life.

In regards to the evil perpetuated by Catholocism toward people of your spiritual path and for any other suffering caused I am sorry and saddened by this. They paractice the synchronization in Vodoun in Haiti and in New Orleans we had a neighbor who was a Priestess of Vodoun. It is a blend of Catholocism and native African beliefs.

New Orleans is a wonderful city and shall always be home to me.

<quoted text> Questioning what one bliefs is a valid practice even my mentor Mother Theresa often did this although the letters were found after her death. Doubt is normal I believe and all people struggle with it. In the bible the doubt expressed is actually quite numerous and rampant. After the doubt however and after the questioning of the heart and mind I believe as I have stated each person should be free to live their lives as they see fit.
Agreed, one hundred percent. Questioning one's own beliefs helps to either strengthen them or to abandon them and adopt new beliefs. I believe the evolution of the human spirit is constant.

Science is good. It, too, questions itself all the time--it retains what makes sense, and casts off that which does not. If science didn't change through learning new facts, it wouldn't be science.

Yes, PRIDE is one of the worst (diseases), lol -, to have , on anything , not just in Religion, or in your beliefs. It is really bad in your FAITH though, because that is your SOUL your messing with, and you seem to think you know more than even GOD.
Pride reminds me of a big tall building (skyscrapers), but weak foundation, and it will FALL one of the days, the taller ( PROUDER) you get in yourself.
Pride is one thing; excessive pride is sumpthin' else. I take pride in my work, but I'm not building any shrines to myself.

Genealogy of Jesus:

Luke 3: 23-31 Forty-three generations from King David to Jesus
That's a discrepancy of fifteen generations, with NONE OF THE NAMES MATCHING EXCEPT FOR DAVID, JOSEPH AND JESUS. Are you going to tell me they are *both* accurate?
And *neither* genealogy is of Mary, either; otherwise, her name would have been mentioned. It is not. And even if it were, that's still a discrepancy of FIFTEEN GENERATIONS.
So, the bible proves itself to be a lie right there.
Or would you care to addresss these "last words" of jesus?
"And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, E’li, E’li, la’ma sa-bach’tha-ni? That is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"
(Matthew 27: 46)
Which contradicts--
"When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost."
(John 19:30)
Which contradicts--
Luke 23:46–“And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said,‘Father, into thy hands I commit my Spirit.’ And having said this, he breathed his last.”
Again, the bible proves itself to be a lie.
Or are you going to use that same lame excuse of "You're not spiritually discerning and I am, because you don't believe and I do" that every other fundie uses?
And for this I got a peanut? Hey, all I did was to quote the bible.

Yes I will address you with this;

First;You therefore have no excuse you who pass judgment on sone one else for at whatever point you judge the other you are condemning yourself because you who pass judgement do the same
things.Now we know tha God's judgment agaist those who do such things is based on truth.So when you a mere man/woman pass judgment on them and yet do the same things do you think you will escape God's judgement or do you show comtempt for the riches of his kindness,torerance and patience not realizing that God,s kindness will lead you to repentences.
Who are you to judge Jesus genelogy.

Second;We know that the law is good if one uses it properly We also know that law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels the ungodly and sinful and the irreligious.
Who are you a address what I may beleive or not beleive this is not your walk it is mine.

Third;We hear that some among you are idle.They are not busy they are busybodys.You were this label well.

Finally I care not what your opinions are,do not care to discuss or argue any of your points.This is my last post to you.You have nothing that would interest me.

Bonsoir Senecus. In certain areas in New Orleans they were not welcome either but they were not treated hostile just ignored. The nuns on the other hand did not like me because of the way I look, it sounds shallow but it is the truth. As stated it is not my place to judge but their actions are not concurrent with the teachings of love,justice and mercy. I mentioned before that people in power develop God complexes, especially in institutional seetings. Do you see my point? I however shall continue to let my light shine and hope that my words can make a difference to at least one person.
Salve Seraphine:)

Never been to New Orleans, but sounds like an interesting place, and I do like Cajun foods:)

True that many given positions of authority abuse it,and often for self-gratification. Particularly sad when it occurs in institutions that should be "beacons of love", but have become 'dens of demons'.

The Master gave us the example to follow, one would do well to learn it;)

"And Jesus called them to him and said to them,“You know that those who are considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.

But it shall not be so among you. But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be slave of all."(Mark 10:42-44)

Bonsoir Kaitlin in regards to Hitler it was something that could not be helped. I however am pacifistic.

The human tongue has gotten all people into trouble in the varied stages and periods of human history, you are not alone is this.

My beliefs have been strengthened but so has my belief in science.

A belief syatem in my opinion functions the same way, it should always change and always evolve and not remain static.

Bonsoir Senecus,

a wonderful example of scripture and wise words from the Master are meant to be harkened. I am a Creole, much like Jews and Samaritans Cajuns and Creoles historically have not gotten along well my family believes we are all the same and this is what they have taught me and this in turn I try to teach others hopefully with a small measure of favor.

As I mentioned, my mom is a Strega and a pediatrician (in keeping with the tradition of healers), who taught me the old ways, and my dad is a retired Marine--a warrior--who taught me how to fight, how to stand up for myself, and how to shoot. I like to think he did a pretty good job. I guess he and mom compliment each other through balance.

As for me, I'm a veterinary technician--in keeping with my religion's tradition for healing, only I try to take care of those who can't speak for themselves. Even with all its ups and downs, it's still a great job. I have a cousin who's isn't so much involved in Stregheria as she is with being an LVN. She wears some of the jewelry, and keeps an altar, but she doesn't practice much as far as observing all the rituals and holidays. She received her nurse's training and education in Kandahar as a Navy nurse; now she's into Wilderness Search and Rescue. She loves rapelling from a hovering helicopter, as she did in Afghanistan. For myself, I hate heights. I'd never have made it in the military.

LOL, You hit the nail on the head with your response. This one reminds me of our old friend "Knoweldge". Same mean, hypocritical religious mindset. How have you been girl? I had a great time at Disney World. Didnt want to come back! You missed the post that Lawest100 said right before I left. Women shouldnt be on here "preaching"..I am JUST a women..Huh!! He is such a joke. I hope you are doing well
And you have just displayed all of the "christian love" with this post that your friend have accused me of, and not that I couldn't care less but the real real joke and hypocrite here is none other than yourself and vomit and filthiness that you try to teach and convey on this thread, you would be very laughable to me if I didn't first pity you for the cocoon of ignorance that you have wrapped yourself up in, I have zero respect for you.
