C_A, could you explain a little more about how you relate being judgmental to witchcraft being ardained as a secret?
Feeling dense here, and hoping for an ah, hah! moment.
"So it be Ardane, that none but the Wica may see our mysteries. for our enemies are many, And torture looseth the tongues of many."
The "reverse discrimination" I mentioned is worse now than it has been in years. People stomping around shouting about their wiccan victimhood who very likely aren't Wiccan in the first place and if they are, ought not be shouting about it in the village square.
I have seen more intolerance from "tolerant types" in the last year than my guts can process. I dare say that there is more Christian bashing by McWiccans, McDruids, McRecons, McAsatruar, McPagan....and I even see it unabashedly condoned, (if not participated in
), by people for whom you'd not expect to see the "Mc". It has gotten to be so that it all but qualifies as "tenet"! Even sillier is when Wiccans end up accused of intolerance by those same people for not being tolerant of their "beliefs"...beliefs that are incongruent to Wiccan beliefs, but they still spew their consternation when called upon to get with the program. Opps. I guess my penchant for digression has reared it's head...
