i think thats all any of us can do , just try to be a good person. thing is.. the definition of a good person is so rigid in some peoples minds that problems are caused for those who fall out-with those criteria.. it is possible to say.. 'up yer ass ,im doing the best i know how' but sometimes conflicts arise , then its a case of which has the stronger pull.

First off, despite being exhausted you still looked fine honey.

I was raised in a fire and brimstone Pentecostal church that encouraged speaking in tongues and dancing in the aisles. (no snakes though lol). At the age of 13 my biggest dream within this church was to create a ballet (yes a ballet) on the life of Christ. I was told I was a Jezabel for wanting to put lust into the mens eyes. I told my father this (who did not attend) and was allowed to leave.

I tried many other churches and always found them lacking. The biggest question I always had and that no one liked was...if God is so forgiving and so loving...then why did they call themselves God fearing Christians? Why fear a being that loved them so much? Then I started questioning...why would such an awesome being murder his own child? THAT went over really well I can tell you LOL.

Now I proudly call myself Witch. I now find the power of the Lady and her Consort in everything around me. I find their power within me. The blooming of a rose, watching a baby bird hatching from it's egg, seeing the power of a storm with the winds whipping my hair as the rain washes over my body...with the lightening crossing the sky...THAT to 'ME' is Diety.

We must all find our own paths and unfortunately those questions that you have will probably remain unanswered...but if you look within yourself honey, you will find more answers than you probably expect to see.

Our Coven teaches that no one view is wrong on a belief in God/dess. ALL are right in their beliefs...because it is THEIR beliefs. It is what THEY feel in THEIR heart. I know this doesn't help much...but do just that honey...follow that wonderful loving heart of yours...and one day answers will come.

Love and Light,
Vesta Morgaine (High Priestess)

I hope your lack of faith in a diety (or spirituality on some level) isn't soley nailed to the issue of your sexual preference.

Not at all, I've never really believed in God (even when I actively tried) and all the conflict between religion and sexuality ever did was reaffirm my existing beliefs on the evils of religion and the tyranny of dogmatic law. That having been said, I certainly understand the need to believe for a majority of peple, I am simply not one of them. I'm glad you saw the film and that it resonated with you on a multitude of levels, I think any good documentary film should provoke thought and inspire dialogue - otherwise it is complete drivel and I haven't the time or patience.
