Also, wicca was not invented 60 years ago. IT was revived 60 years ago. Those practices are pretty ancient from the pagans... gardner(right?) just brought it back to the mainstream.
Just wanted to say that. Don`t confuse Wiccan and (Neo)pagan. Wicca = 1 god, 1 goddess, wiccan rede. Pagan = any number of gods, can be similar to wicca in practices (I participate in wiccan ceremonies like the solstice, I`m sort of like how jewish is to christian, same stuff give or take some differences) also includes buddhism and hinduism, among others.
Also, Wicca is a branch of paganism.
Like wise I cannot demand someone taking anything from what I say, but to to help establish a thought..."is it worth it to defend a satire video to people who are veiwing it for the humor purposes?" Maybe it is to some..but personality, much like previously stated it`s fighting air..you might aswell vote third party here in the States :P It`ll get you no where..
On another note Owanie I see you play drums, so do I? Do you play with anybody or just a hobbyist?
This isn`t a documentary.There are`t any credentials to this video.It doesn`t take a rocket scientist to see this.Half of the humor in this video is the ignorance placed upon these subjects.The education portion of this video makes up about 1%, we all know that, give people the benefit of the doubt.Defending against this video is like fighting air..If someone beleives a video of humor as an educated source...then there is nothing that anyone could do to help that individuals intelligence..let it be.. and get on with our lives...Thats all I am saying..
Ask a few more Wiccans and you`ll get some different explanations. You can fit a variety of things into Wicca, from a highly gynocentric religion with a single female deity to an egalitarian duotheistic religion in which there might or might not be belief in a divine force of some kind, which usually isn`t personified as "God".
Christianity has had ~2000 years to grow hundreds of different variations (Catholic, Protestant, Baptist, etc, etc). Wicca has only had 60 years, but they`re working hard to catch up :) It`s the religion that bothers me the least for a variety of reasons, but the main one is that it`s inherently resistant to becoming a centralised authority because it`s so varied. It doesn`t lend itself to being a monolithic organisation that can hold a lot of power.
Er...well, that`s extremely obvious. How on earth did I manage to overlook it until now?
Following the same eminently reasonable line of argument, Christianity is just like the worship of Cthulhu. They even start with the same letter!
And dragosal, have you ever studied anything about the KKK ever? Try getting them to accept a Catholic, Jew, or an atheist. In their eyes, anything outside of the white Anglo-Saxon (or Aryan, if you swing that way) Protestant tradition is inferior. The KKK is a religiously-based hate organization. Sorry.
This blanket does EVERYTHING!
satanists stole the pentagram and inverted it-much like they did the cross-so that it means the opposite of what it usually does, that`s the only reason wicca and satanism ever got confused in the first palce.
have a nice day.
