why knock em?
Im not a wiccan......
just being silly
the funniest of all pagan religions.
you knwo something is wrong with your beliefs when one of the main figureheads is called "Silver Ravenwolf".
it doesnt look good in a cynical society now does it?
However ....oh I dont know, wiccans have been quite freindly and well disposed towards me, so .........oh dear this is difficult........You wouldnt laugh or scoff if you found out that the person called silver ravenwolf were a Native American indian now would you........the reason that it sems embarissing is because you are assuming that it is a white westerner who was not brought up in that way, bnd that they are afecting something that is not really culturally theirs......which is a trifle unfair. I mean many westerners would be less reluctant to mock a westerner who adopted islam an an islamic name. The unfortunateness comes from the fact theat this composit name is familiar in its parts to you......of dear this is heavy going.....look I know what you mean, but i think that its a bit unfair....I mean Im sure that silver ravenwolf is a very sincere intense american.
I have other names other than the one my mum gave me
but that's a fair point.
But its on MySpaz.
natural thing in the universe you squares
the name would look pretentious to a cynical secularist. I have to admit that.
but not JC? It's bigoted and offensive
and if I remember correctly, her writing was awful and poor quality. But that's just opinion.
She's not a religious figurehead in that way, she just writes about it.
SR > JC
never had any blood spilt in her name. She has also been active in Wiccan anti-discrimination issues, something I don't see JC doing.
and please remember, the bible was written by humans, and could easily be fictional.
Have you read some of the stories that got left out of the bible? they're ridiculous.
i'm no expert on christianity or wicca, but as far as I remember, Jesus advocated peace and love etc. Not violence and hate (neither did SRW etc.)
he's recorded in many other historical documents from the time other than the Bible.
has reported in an open letter that "a few webpages are trying their best to damage my reputation"; she discusses and rebuts these claims in the same letter
was a member of the Serpent Stone Family, and received her Third Degree Initiation as a member of that coven. She is the leader of the Black Forest Circle and Seminary, an organization containing several covens spanning the United States and Canada.
am evvvv'rydayeee peeepooole
peasantry out of this thread. This is for believers of Wiccca-ry
She is an influential member of the wiccan community. That means nothing. Jesus was the son of God in a significant way. SRW was not. She is just a prominent follower.
You're not being very interesting in your discussion and so I'm just going to leave it at this: I don't agree with the beliefs of wicca (just like I don't agree with the beliefs of many other religions) and I find her name amusing (just like I find the name Morag hilarious ie. I have a bad sense of humour). You feel differently. Shall we leave it at that?
drawing class and their regular nude model was called Morag. You can imagine.
Copy and paste something from Wikipedia or fuck off.
The causes of Lucien include genetic predisposition (weak rectal vein walls and/or valves), straining during bowel movements, and too much pressure on the rectal veins due to poor muscle tone or poor posture. Lucien may also result from portal hypertension because of the portacaval anastomoses. Anal sex can also stress the anus particularly if too little lubricant is used and cause rectal wall strain. Lucien is also linked to sitting for prolonged periods of time.
you need Wicca to make you clean and weird
I wonder if they'll change their name to Wiccanpedia if I ask them?
was called River Water Moonbeam. Seriously. She needed little encouragement to get out of her clothes. Probably a filthy Wiccan.
she's being paid, yo
to be asked to wear a gown after she wandered off into the hall during a break. She was a 50 year old hippy, but to actually draw old peoples bodies is far more challenging and interesting than a 20 year old. Maybe slightly less enjoyable though.
only publicised/invented by a harmless eccentric British pensioner, rather than an american with an overwhelming interest in money.
And as such it's infinitely less offensive.
I imagine if the full story were known JC might well have been involved in similarly ludicrous scenarios.
or a sacred solar calindrical dying king of the traditional type.
The teachings that I percieve to have been his seem fine and worthy and brave......they dont go far enough as it turns out as they were marvellously subverted and ignored by christianity as an organisation.
I think I could improve on the body of work known as his teachings and parables, but people wont listen to me.
Im not really into organisations with artificial titles and positions
I am a poor shamen, Im just a lowly hedge witch (sung to the strains of bohemian rhapsody) who talks to what you lot think are inanimate things
which is really primative............my gods are older than your gods. heh heh,
only joking, im not into 'gods' its my tradition that is much older, as indeed am i, I am far older than you could ever concieve.
You are older than I could ever conceive
are you sure that's not wheatus you're singing along to?
Teenage Hedge Witch
needless to say I used the term a long long time ago when there were no sections in bookshops on teenage witches n stuff.
It was great when I realised a long time ago that there was a descriptive name used for us, even though we tend to be solitary, I've come across a few others often hidden in other pagan groupings.
The best book is Mrs Grieves 'A modern herbal'
unless wikipedia is misleading me. Which it might be. But I don't think so.
I thought it was just one of those things 14 year old girls said they were to appear "wacky" (read: seem interesting)
careful your profile is in danger as identifying you as wacky and by logical deduction an 'interesting' 14 year old girl
