Gday the Folk,
Well, I think so far as the moral rightness of our deeds.. an the
of our people, coming up as we do as a kind of anti-christianity......
There has to be a reason why people come our way, and some
in order to escape from the prevailing moral order... rather than
neccisarily through a desire to live in such a way as to be more
ordered or more strictly... right or true...
We are catching the floatsam of the religious and social world
extent and this is to be expected since the reawakening is not yet
mainstream, but rather a small and somewhat archaic anacronism.. at
so far as the Mchicken society is concerned.
An this is especially true for women, who tend to be not only
christian" in their thinking... as a matter of hormones ...... .... or
they have made the break.... are more attracted to Wicca as a womans way...
than the more martial seeming Northern Path....
but it still remains that the dominant culture and religion as an
beast or organism... holds our people in a kind of "death
many good Folk therein....
and for them to get outta there requires a real hard and costly
and a considerable journey... takes a lot of courage, and probably
some break with their family- extended familys... friends or
co-religionists... and that alone is enough to dissuade the majority from
starting the climb.
"The Promise" of christianity, however false and twisted a
things it is..... will often be the final fence too high to climb
those who really dont have their heart in it....
and that that faith has has two thousand years to hone its cunning
of the mortal human psyche... in fact, pretty much every element has
designed exactly with that in mind...
I have had this response from likely candidates... "If [christianity]
all bullshit, well, then its bullshit..... and if it is
well then, what have I got to lose?
I thought about that for a long time... and finally the best I could come up
with is that its better to live an honest, true.. life, than to
with any amount of false promises on the chance premis that
they "may" be
true..... because the prevailing herd says they are or may want
them to be
but for some people that may not be enough.
so I suppose that its the sense of it being better to be
condemmed to an
honest hell, than float up to some bullshit heaven on a cloud of lies
and, that if the world and universe in general was made for the specific
purpose of one universalist religion... why then the core elements of
faith oughta be written on every rock that a person ever picked up......
but they arent, in fact the opposite is true
The final thing, though is that for the majority of people religion is
insurance policy against the unknown, somthing they only half believe....
and dont put much effort into
and the lower the "premiums" and the greater the promise of
a return.... it
comes down to who makes the best sales pitch and has the most glossy
paraphenalia to pass around....
The Gods Ride with the Brave....
