Do you have any links to news stories, etc. about the tyrannical Christians which annihilated,pilaged and raped the heritage of wiccans and...also...do you know any survivors of the atrocities?
This is a joke, right?
I can certainly post a lengthy response to this query, but I fear it will serve little purpose.
But how about doing some soul searching with regard to the Witch Hunts in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Oh, I'm sorry but according to my belief system there can be no survivors because unlike the 'logic' of the Bible, people rarely live beyond 100. And, regarding medieval folk, they were lucky to live to 50. I think essential reading is Arthur Miller's brilliant play, The Crucible.
What I can offer is research to show how most (if not all) Christian symbols and ideologies were 'borrowed' from pagan cultures. An example is the Ancient Egyptian story of the virgin birth, which miraculously became a potent metaphor for Christians.
If you're genuine about your query, I would be happy to share some of my findings.
But somehow I suspect you have an unbending view of spirituality. If you look at the definition of 'wicca' you'll find that one of its meanings is 'to bend'. So, there you have it in black and white!
My apologies to this forum for getting into a pseudo-religious debate. But, somehow, I think Sallie won't be responding to my offer.
