This image really gave me a lot of thinking..so should you...I read bible once in a while but somehow i haven't seen anything mentioned about celebrating traditions the way christians and catholics do now. Or maybe i just missed the part where it's written there that such celebrations should be done in a way paganism does. But my doubts were doubly convinced when i read in a certain history article about a pope (i think it's Pope Gregory I) told Millitus to let other Romans who are pagans to continue their way of celebrating pagan tradition for as long as they do it for the sake of one god and in the name of Jesus. So somehow these villagers were being misled by this pope thinking that they are still doing the usual way of worshipping their gods but the truth is they were already being converted eventually without their knowledge. So i thought maybe that's why christians are celebrating pagan traditions but follow the bible which is contradicting each other. Quite confusing, right? I don't have anything against christians or other religion but it would be a lot appreciative if they keep their business to themselves and stop throwing stones at wiccans and other beliefs. To each his own i guess? I'm not saying all christians are judgmental but all that i met are the same. All they do is push their belief on you then threat you about not being saved if you don't believe in their book or their messiah. IT'S ALL THE SAME, ALL THE TIME!!! There is even a church for hippies and their god is weed and yet people in their place don't mind it. But when you see these people THEY ARE HAPPY. I'm just glad to be born (or maybe again) in this lifetime where burning and hunting of witches is no longer practiced. At least now, people who need to free themselves from being tied to a belief that they don't really want to practice but only given to them while still a child and had no choice, they now do....i just hope that the practice of wicca progress and expand down to where i live. This country and the most of us are still in that idea given to us by our ancestors. I just hope that our people embrace back our native and true religion and beliefs where we used to worship anitos (gods)respect diwatas and encantadas (fairies and nymphs) and asks for guidance from kaluluwa (souls) and espiritus (spirits). Would be like living my childhood again...so nice.
