So many " open-minded " people on this site moan and groan about Christians, and "the church" being closed minded, not understanding and yada yada yada.
Every single on of you who do this, are NO BETTER than the extremist you complain about.
You want people to stop thinking your evil and going to hell? Why don't you all stop ASSUMING everyone who doesn't follow YOUR path is talking trash about you and gives a hoot what you do.
Yes, there are going to be people of a different faith who will never understand. Just like there will always be some 12 year old girl in the magick community trying her hardest to grow fins and sing with a crab and a flounder. But don't sit there acting high and mighty while you turn and do the same thing "they" do with your critisism.
You're not helping the cause to have religious tolerance...you're feeding the hate.
Sorry....this thread was just the straw that broke the camels back.
We shouldn't be so concerned about those types of Christians because if we keep moaning and critisizing them, then we're almost as bad as THEY are! Sure admitadly there are, in my opinion, too many Christians these days who think we're evil or good but against the church because we still can't get over the burning times.
But let me tell you something: each week I can guarantee you at least two extremist Christians come on this site or a kindred one to spy on our "devil worship" or "church opposoition" (and no disrepsect but due to the number of satanic covens here they do probably think we're evil) and us critisizing them is going to make them think we DO oppose the church, and they're too close-minded to find out that it's because they keep thinking we are.
I get FAR MORE hate mail from Wiccans and Neo-Pagans jumping all over my "lack of ethics" and disregard for the Law of Three than i EVER get from fundamentalist Christians telling me i'm going to burn in hell.
It's such blind ignorance.
As in: "I don't know why people hate on me when i wear my pentacle out in public. I mean ALL religions should be tolerated. But those darn close-minded Christians with all their opinions - THEY should burn in hell."
