Re: A lot of bigotry here, I notice (RANT TIME)
Nex, I'm sure there are many people who would testify that Dubya never was anything but nice to them, generous, humble even. I'm sure that if he had to pull the trigger on a REAL person, not just a random "number" out of 1 million Iraqis for example, even he would have trouble doing it, because he would have to look them straight in the eye before doing it.
But pushing a button or giving the order for someone else to do it is a whole different matter.
Just like Freemasons who participate in occult rituals they have no idea the effect of, or what powers and forces they unleash - all they know is that Freemasonry is a "humanitarian, philathropic" worldwide organization trying to promote "wholesome" values.
But what Freemasons and Wiccans don't realise is that their well-meaning, naive energies are being directed towards totally other goals, by the people higher up in the power pyramid, and they don't even KNOW about these people's existance.
All they know is "we had a ritual session for the benefit of Mother Earth", or in the case of Freemasons "The Grand Architect", and that sound mighty fine and benevolent.
The issue is much deeper and more serious than to say that just because you've met Wiccans and they were friendly to you, then all Wiccans are just into a different "religious belief system", and that their rites and rituals are just another way of "serving allmighty God".
