I see there is no reasoning to be done here..

Despite the fact that Christian practitioners of folk-magic have been prevalent from at least the 15th century in Britain, that Catholicism itself is steeped with what can be considered theurgy, thaumaturgy, and other forms of higher magic, and that certain interpretations of the Bible & Apocrypha portray miracles as workings of God through whoever so is performing them, Christian witchcraft must be a load of bull.

And this is ignoring that the definitions of witchcraft and the definitions given in the Bible are specific and probably mistranslated whilst being out of date with the definitions considered to be of nowadays practice. This is ignoring the fact that not all practices are malicious, considered ‘sorcery’, and other terms specified in scripture.

Oh and of course witchcraft being secular can only be used alongside certain religions.. Note my sarcasm..

No, there is no reasoning to be done here..

It’s important to talk about how vaccines don’t cause autism, but can we please also talk about how much people must hate autism if they’d rather expose their child to polio, measles and chickenpox than autism?

THIS. I feel like asking every anti-vac parent “Why would you rather have a dead child than an autistic one?” I think these parents ought to explain their stance to a group of autistic adults.

Guys, I’ve been feeling called to a goddess lately but I don’t know how to go about this. I had always grown up with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit so this is all really new to me. I’m currently reading my bibles trying to find some answers but it really bothers me how Bibles…

well, there’s Wisdom in the book of Proverbs, also referenced by Jesus (“Wisdom knows her children”) and idk what denomination you are b ut Wisdom is also in Wisdom of Solomon and Sirach which are in the Catholic and Orthodox Bible(s). She is spoken of in a similar way as the WOrd/Christ.  also references to God giving birth …it’s implied in Job , something like “whose womb births the snow?” and the whole “being born of the Spirit” implies the Spirit gives birth to us and is thus our Mother.

see if you can find the book She Who Is by Elizabeth Johnson; it might help.
