“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs - and told them they should also inform patients of the ... via Fables of the reconstruction

The great mystic Nostradamus turned to the fire element regularly for his visions. As he explained in one of his writings,“Secrets are revealed by the subtle spirit of fire.” Pyromancy (divining by fire) continues to be a favorite means of divination among witches and Wiccans.

A LETTER TO YOUNG WICCANS
Advice for teens who are new to
Wicca, Witchcraft and Paganism.

Welcome to the tribe...
and may the Triple Goddess of Maiden, Mother and Crone, and the Golden Horned God of the Hunt, bless you and all your family.

You'll find us Wiccans a pretty diverse bunch, rather anarchic and experimental in our practices, but ever growing as we relearn the old and new ways of the Craft of the Wise.

Religious Tolerance

We urge caution when contacting an unknown Wiccan individual or group for the first time. There are a lot of nut-cases in North America and Neopaganism has its share.

Cecilia Gimenez, the woman who 'restored' the Jesus fresco, is now suing her church

The botched painting became so popular with tourists that her church began charging people an entrance fee, the Daily Telegraph reported. After hearing about this, Gimenez hired lawyers who now insist that she deserves a cut of the church's profits. "She just wants the church to conform to the law," lawyer Enrique Trebolle told the Telegraph. "If this means economic compensation she wants it to be for charitable purposes."

What has this to do with her name, and where does it say anything about seeing the future?

Your implications are extremely dishonest.

Starhawk knew a good religious scam would result in money coming in in the future.

Don't you ever get tired of accusing me of being dishonest?

It gets quite boring after while.

I suggest you let others decide who is being dishonest and stick to your points of "interest."

But then ... you will do what you do. Witches are very determined to manipulate the scenes to suit their agendas.

According to Ann Coulter, she has the fast-track to heaven.

Observe the fast-track to being a witch by stating three times ... "I am a witch."

My guess is, Gardner, the "father of Wicca" would (metaphorically stating) turn over in his grave if he could see what became of his ideas.

Hahahahahaha

How Do You Become A Witch?

Becoming a Witch varies from tradition to tradition. And since every Witch is pretty much a tradition of her own, that's a lot of options!

In other words, there is no paperwork, or initiation, or any other method that can turn you into a Witch.

How you choose to dedicate yourself to the practice of Wicca is entirely your affair.

According to the old school, Gardnerian-descended Wicca, you must undergo a program of study under a High Priest/ess for a year and a day, create your own Book of Shadows, and have a formal initiation into a coven.

Obviously, this doesn't work so well for people who practice as solitaries or in circles. And it's certainly not a necessity for Wicca spirituality.

On the other extreme is the convention of declaring aloud, 3 times, either in front of a mirror or to the Full Moon: "I am a Witch!" And it's done.

Which is best? Whichever is right for you!

You have a problem with authors making money?

Your assertion about here was nonsensical. Her making money had nothing to do with her choosing that name, or seeing the future, as you claimed.

No, when you are dishonest, I never get tired of saying so. Why would I?

Others are perfectly free to decide for themselves. As am I. I'm also perfectly free to say what I've decided. Take your suggestion, and shove it up your ass. You don't control me.

I'm manipulating nothing. You prove me right daily, with your own posts.

Note the words ... "self-determination" ... and you will understand Bitner's will to always be right concerning every issue.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>

This is the New Wicca, taking Wicca to its core values: self-determination, and personal relationship with the Divine.

Nonsense. Gardner's ideas are still in use today, in Garnderian Wicca. You're ASSuming that he would object to details of different Traditions, and you have no basis for that ASSumption.

Can you read Starhawk's mind Bitner?

She's a business woman, as is the pope a business man.

Do you honestly believe that she said to herself, "If my books sell, I won't make any money?"

You are being silly.

If I have no basis for my assumptions ... neither do you.

Garner is not here to speak for himself.

Besides you stated that you thought he was a dirty old man, and that you didn't follow his ideas.
