Very true. Material for assembling patio furniture has little to do with heathens or witchcraft. Unless, of course, the intention is to have sex with said patio furniture.

I think that, to some folks who follow Abrahamic religions, "Pagan" is a "bad thing", because we don't follow their concept of God... therefore we're "evil". ::shrug::



The overwhelming majority of Pagans aren't "bad", we just have a different relationship with the Divine.

Let My worship be within the heart that rejoices,

for behold, all acts of love and pleasure are My rituals.

Therefore let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion,

honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.

There are those who can not be led just as there are those who cannot lead. To those who will not be led say "Get hence, and seek another group or form your own, or worship alone." To those who cannot lead say, "Those who cannot bear your leadership will leave you." Where there is disagreement and strife power is only poorly raised. Sometimes it becomes a rotting invisible sore. It is better to part with peace in your heart and theirs. There are many paths to spiritual wisdom, but we are all the children of the Goddess. Anger and endless resentment will give you no power. The religion of the Gods must endure.-The Sacred Warrior

Well I guess I'm evil too. Cause I don't necessarily follow the concept of "God" spoken of in the Bible.

May I always remember that whatever is sent out returns magnified to the sender. The forces of Karma will move swiftly to remind me of my spiritual commitments when I have begun to falter from them. May I use this Karmic feedback to remain strong and committed to my Spiritual ideals in the face of adversity or negativity.
