And a Goddess, and another God, and another Goddess, and another God and another Goddess......................well, as you can see, I am a polytheist. What's a polytheist you might ask? I didn't ask her a question, why is she still talking, you might ask? Doesn't matter, I'll answer anyway.
A Polytheist is one who believes in the existence of more then one Deity. Now technically one could be a polytheist and only worship one Deity, but still believe in the existence or at least the posibility of other deitites. This is in contrast to a Monotheist who believes that there is only one deity. Which in reality acutally goes against the christian bible as it acknowledges the existence of other deities. Genesis 1:26 says "Then God said 'Let us make man in our image...'" which clearly indicates that there is more then one deity. Otherwise god would have said I will make man in my image. Not to mention that Satan is credited with having the ability to temp humans into sin and to cast them into hell, which clearly would put him into the category of a Deity, which would mean that even christians are polytheists. Although, for arguments sake, a polytheist is more to the point that you would actually worship more than one deity and clearly christians only worship one deity.
So why am I here? On Earth or Beliefnet? Well, both are interesting questions. I suppose to be sarcastic would answer both of them. Because I can, would also answer both of them. Because I agreed to the terms and agreements? Well, that might answer both of them. I do agree to breath in air and to not jump off of a cliff.
So what can you expect from me? Man, what is with all of the questions? What is this, the Spanish Inquisition? Ok, seriously. I will either make entries here frequently or infrenquently. But I can guarentee it will be one or the other. But when I do post it will be directly related to Paganism. Here are some things you should know about my beliefs:
1. I am an unapologetic Pagan. What this means is that I make no apologies for what I believe. If that makes you sad that I don't follow the religion that you do, well, go find a therapist. I'm not here to make you happy. Religion should be a choice, not a prison sentence.
2. I dont' do interfaith. If you are of another religion and you want to interact with me, oh that's cool. But the fact is that I don't like christianity. I might like you. And I don't judge you by what religion you practice, but I will never be interested in finding some way for us to worship together. I deal with christianity every day. I don't need to deal with it on my free time.
3. I'm sarcastic. I'm not trying to win Miss congeniality. I'm not a bitch either. I can be nice, and I see no reason to be mean. But political correctness just doesn't live here.
4. I call it like it is. If you behave in a way that is intolerant towards beliefs and practices that are different than yours, I will call you a bigot. Because that is pretty much the definition of the word. Don't want me to call you a bigot? Ok.........don't act like one. See how that works?
Ok, now that we got acquainted, let's get this show started.
