wow i am gone for an hour and the thread goes from 21 posts to 61. holy!! thank you goddess for the links i will check them out. gretelgirl i do not know alot on the subject of the wiccan religion but what i have learned does not support the idea of satanism. rather a religion of the earth. and when something in my house gets broken and i ask the 2 boys who live with me who was responsible they both say not me. so maybe i too have a ghost in the house. seems like alot of things happen in my house that no one is responsible for. more likely not a true ghost LOL pyrmom you are just a wealth of info.
Howabout we learn about things before we insult them? Wiccan has nothing to do with satinism. What would you consider pagans then? Wow, and I didn't even want to discuss religion. I just don't understand how SOME (I know not all) christians can be so hateful.
*glares at grettle* Firstly druids are real, I know of a few circles. easter IS NOT the only pagan holiday christianity "borrowed" from paganisim...it's called research, it is your friend, get to know it better. What about halloween...*do you know anything about religion, ANY religion? DO NOT! get into a religious debate with me, I researched various religions for 3 years before I found wicca to be my match. I have been a practicing wiccan for 7 years so I know a thing or two. Read a bloody book. If ignorance is bliss, you must be orgasmic!
Forgive me for giving more fuel to a debate that obviously has reached culmination; however, when I read this thread, I was moved to respond. I would be the 'daughter' referred to by Pyrmom. Merry Met Isis. Your points are very well expressed. I also researched many religions prior to finding one that fit my heart, mind and spirit. As for Wiccans being satanic, I still can not comprehend being called a Satan worshiper. This couldn't be further from the truth. In my eyes, Satan does not even exist. He is a culmination of everything evil in the world- therefore impossible, as all things in this wonderful place we inhabit have balance and at least some inherant good within them. Perhaps not the place for a religious discussion, this board seems to be a gathering place of like minded people. One would think that tolerance would be a prerequisite for joining in such a group; apparently GrettelGirl's religion of choice does not teach such things. Blessed Be. Lunafate
Did grettle say wiccans worship satan? I didn't even see that...hmmm, selective reading? I don't even bother respondeing to that whole wiccans worship satan thing anymore. I've been called a satan worshiper more times than I can remember by people who saw my pentacle necklace. I've learned to drown them out.
With that said I will refer you back to your post #61 and the the follwing 2 posts! For real can you NOT read!!!Rules: NO ADVERTISING!

I think everyone can rest assured that GrettelGirl's parents and religious leaders are quite proud of the progress she has made. As for Halloween and it's Pagan beginings, perhaps a small history lesson is in order. The word itself, "Halloween," actually does have origins in the Catholic Church. It comes from a contracted corruption of All Hallows Eve. November 1, "All Hollows Day" (or "All Saints Day"), is a Catholic day of observance in honor of saints. But, in the 5th century BC, in Celtic Ireland, summer officially ended on October 31. The holiday was called Samhain (sow-en), the Celtic New year. Would you care to enlighten the members of this board with any further scintillating posts? And for the record, scintillating means "To be animated and brilliant".
