Re: What makes you a Pagan?


When you posted that, Saijen, I had to think of this blog post:

]I'm Christian unless you're gay

It may not relate to this woman on FB but it sure shows up people for "being Christian" in a fake and holier than thou way. I hope you like it.

I would utterly dispise a person who does not care about me as me and doesn't like what I'm doing but remains "a friend" because she's Christian. She's living a lie and uses her religion as excuse to do so. ARGH!

It's just her and those like her. I know many of the Christian [sign in to see URL] of the strict Roman Catholic faith, who love me not because they are Christian and I need to be changed, but because they ARE Christian and are capable of loving everyone. emoticon

[sign in to see URL] an outstanding blog that was!!!!!

I read the entire thing, and man, did he hit the nail on the [sign in to see URL] than once! Thank you SO much for posting that link! I plan on doing a copy/paste on the URL in FB and posting it. [sign in to see URL] maybe, some people will understand that what they think they are doing out of 'love' is actually abuse in it's finest form! I posted a reply to Dan, and up until then, had not really thought about the abuse aspect of what people are doing when they put others down for what they believe, feel, [sign in to see URL] how they are, dress, [sign in to see URL].

I wonder if this guy is [sign in to see URL] he sure seems to have that quality about him. If not, he's following pretty darn close to the true Pagan directive of how we should act. Or, at least what I perceive as the true Pagan directive. [sign in to see URL] you!

That was an amazing post, I can see why he struggled with writing it. But he really got the point across! Thanks for sharing the link, I've gone and shared it on FB- I know a lot of people who would enjoy reading that, and one or two that I am hoping will read it anyway.

I'm glad the blog post moved you. It's been a while since he posted it, but I think it is just as valid now. If you can spare the time, look at some of the posts he made as people responded to that one. So many good things came from it!

Sometimes, it only takes a few words to change a life.

This is how I view things, to me The Universe/Nature is my deity. Sometimes though not often, I call it The Goddess, this confuses most people though as they tend to think of The Goddess as a deity that I have to please or else so I try not to use such terms.

Im Pagan because I revere and honor the Earth, I see Nature is Sacred, I practice Magic, Ritual, Divination, to me, that makes me Pagan. emoticon

Re: What makes you a Pagan?


Terry, I like your reply! I am kind of struggling with my path at the [sign in to see URL] things feel more ideal to me than others, and I, like you, tend to see Nature as more what I prefer to worship than an actual [sign in to see URL] I do feel there are Watchers, who are helpers, that help with some of the more physical aspects of what we need done. I may be way off, but, for now, that's how I see things.

We're about to start a new book for our discussion group called Exploring The Pagan Path, if you'd be interested in joining. I have the book, but some of the others don't have their copies yet, so there's time if you'd like to join in.
