You have been spoon fed lies by this cult. You read all that gibberish in your 60 year old book about a fairy godmother and her little pixies. Keep waving that magicK wand, and maybe some day you can fly like your fairy godmother queen.
How about we rephrase that:
You have been spoon fed lies by this cult. You read all that gibberish in your 2000 year old book about a mean, selfish, jealous and capricious god and his little dead son. Keep waving that bible, and maybe after you die you can cash in on those brownie points.

Does that give you a warm fuzzy feeling towards pagans? Then why do you think that would help us see your faith in a positive light?
Don't you realize that conversion by insult is not very effective? This is why pagans don't often embrace Christians with open arms. It's hard to be chummy with someone that thinks you're a misguided devil-worshiper.

Personally, Wicca never appealed to me - I got enough robes, insence, candles and chanting growing up in the Catholic church. I found solace, joy, hope and comfort in the pre-Christian pagan faith of my own ancestors.

The bible never made sense to me - it's as much fairy tale to me as pagan faiths are to you. I find it contradictory and unbelievable. Yes, I find it unbleievable. You find it credible, fine. Enjoy. I find it incredible.

Each person needs to assess their own upbinging, experiences, views, and beliefs to decide what they actually believe in. I find about as much that I can believe in the bible as you probably would find in the Vedas, Q'ran, Talmud, the writings about the Buddha, the Tao-Te Ching, the Kojiki, or any other sacred texts (and there are many).
