    You might be a Pagan If ...

    I take it everyone's seen this which is doing the rounds? Well, it made me smile You might be a Pagan If ... When you're sworn in in court, you bring your own grimoire. You've been seen talking to cats. They talk back. You understand what they're saying. When asked if you believe...

    Christianity

    Apart from their preconceptions that I am a devil worshipper, enjoy beastiality, slaughter animals at every opportunity and partake in wild lacivious orgies every full moon (if only...), I generally tend to find Christians to be a well meaning if ill informed bunch. As bgruagach put it: "I've...

    Infant and child mutilation in abrahamic systems

    So I take it that it has now moved from covenent from God, to a hygene related cutting?

    Infant and child mutilation in abrahamic systems

    It isn't anger, it's more confused bemusement that people consider it perfectly acceptable to consider something a perfect as an infant child to have 'an ancillary piece of skin' (it isn't ancilliary, it does serve a very important function), that needs cutting off. I really have spent years...

    Can a Christian kill?

    That's what I'm a saying. Interesting hypotheical question. I would still go for active restraint over killing.

    Infant and child mutilation in abrahamic systems

    Hi Dauer, Let me go through the many points you raised... I do. But it is not personified in to the form of a humanoid, but stays as an abstract concept. Firstly, I don't know that answer to that. Slavery is still present in many parts of the world. You say that child disfigurement...

    Can a Christian kill?

    All the time, apparently. Same for the other religions. It seems that any amount of bloodshed can be justified by tacking a deity on to it. Personally, killing is wrong. Always.

    Infant and child mutilation in abrahamic systems

    All this looking to "GOD" for moral certainties is a confusing thing for me. Can't people look to themselves for moral guidance? Is it really neccessary to have someone responsible above you? Genesis 17 in the bible is the covenant of circumcision, it has this terrifying passage in it...

    Is this Offensive?

    What's the wiccan rede? Do what you will, harm ye none. I agree you can't have people manipulating others by magical will, it'll just be a rather weak work, a bit like the most awful film ever, The Wickerman. You could have the character of the witch use her personality and intelligence...
