HAVE YOU HUGGED YOUR WITCH TODAY?
A FEW MYTHS UNCOVERED
I have been asked if witches eat babies, The movie industry is doing us no favors. Remember people, movies aren't real, we are.
Let's clear up a few myths:
We don't eat babies - We love babies just like you "normal" people. We raise our babies to love and accept and nurture people, animals and nature. We don't tell them we are better than anyone else or place guilt and fear on theirs backs about heaven and hell. They even go to school with Christian kids. Better grab you kid out before my kid tells him there is no hell. He won't tell them about the Santa Claus thing, it's safe.
We do not sacrifice animals- If someone is abusing an animal, we will try to stop and help the animal. They are part of nature, just as we are, we respect that. If I remember correctly, there was a lot of animal sacrifice in the Bible. Haven't read it in a while.
We are not going to Hell - If we believed in Hell, we still wouldn't be going. You aren't going either so relax. I could bring up all the theological reasons we don't believe in the eternal fire but the one I think Christians ask themselves works: Why would He send us to Hell if He made us with all our faults? Perhaps they aren't all faults, Maybe we have sex to make babies, but He sure designed it to feel good. Boy are there some rules about that one.
Find me a good answer to this Hell thing and come back. i would be interested. Do not quote the Bible, please.
We do not practice sex orgies - We already know what to do, we don't need practice. I am joking. Sex is a practice that can be magical and full of love and how we make babies, too. We may light a few candles, do you? We might even do it in the dark, do you? There will always be people who attend orgies, etc. there always have been and always will be. If you know a witch that attended one, was he/she good?
About that Back Magic Thing - I am sure there are those who use this fear to control others. If you believe, be careful, you can make things happen to yourself psychologically . If someone is practicing this they may be using fear, raw fear, to make you and others do what they want you to do. Kinda like that Hell thing. Besides, we have rules about that.
Santeria - Nope, Not remotely related.
Speaking of Rules- We are not out to hurt anyone, period, that's the fact, Jack. Our BIG RULE: HARM NONE. Not even Muslims or Jews or Islamics, not even Witches. Pretty much covers all those commandment things. Christians killed a bunch of us off in the 1500's. We are not over that.
Summary- We get a bad rap during Halloween. Some of us are actually very comely, no warts. It is that time of year again and people start thinking it is a Holiday of Hell. What it is is a time to remember deceased loved ones and to honor them. It isn't about demons and devils. Those of us who lived in less enlightened times were afraid, heck everything was dark. I hope you know better. We are not spawn of the Devil that come out once a year and reak havoc on the world. We were the ones, before doctors, people went to to be healed. We knew what nature had given us to heal and knew how to use it. It made us powerful. Then the Christians made us something to fear. They wanted no one to trust us. They wanted any relationship we had with the peasants to be gone. It was a kind of power struggle and we were and are mostly women, read into that what you wish. They succeeded. By the way, it's called homeopathic and natural medicine now and it is raking in big bucks.
So, if you see a witch or two this Halloween, don't run into a church, we can go there too, don't gasp in horror, it offends us, just say hello and walk on by.
We HARM NONE! How about you?
PS: Did you know that Christianity was based on Jewish beliefs? Jesus was Jewish, not Christian. Read up on that.
