I thought Wicca was some kind of mystery religion founded some time last century. All performing secret rituals and not telling anyone what they're about, the witches. Then again, I think my knowledge comes from a discussion of a revert war at a wikipedia article. Not the article itself, just the discussion pages with editors accusing each other of sockpuppetry.

Really? Where at? I spent the last two years of High School in Oromocto. My ex-girlfriend was a pseudo-Wiccan at one point before I met her.
@_@

I'm about five minutes outside of Oromocto, pretty close to Geary. It's a seriously damn small world. Very likely we actually never met even though I've been here for about thirteen years because I was homeschooled, but yeah.


You're one of those Home Schooled Pentecostal kids, eh? You would have gone to high school with me otherwise, assuming you're old enough.

Well, maybe you HAVE heard of me. I'll PM you my real name, we'll compare notes.

Since you're in the Pentecostal scene, do you know Chris and Kaitlyn Comeau?

Okay, so, today this girl I know-Lauren, just took a sudden dis-interest in talking to me. Is she just on her period or something?

I'm almost 25, so it's been a little while since High School.

It's entirely possible I've seen them, but I can't say as I run in the same circles they do. My dad's church is one of the smaller, lesser-known ones with a group of about 7-10 families, and we've been meeting at the old oddfellows hall. You probably wouldn't recognise it now since we managed to get rid of most of the graffiti (it will be back of course, since it's right between the school and the mall...) (and by we, I don't mean me, because I was at work that day, sweet justice)

For me, a witch = a person who can use magic.  As such, I'd probably have said I don't believe in them.

When my college biology class was supposed to practice with condoms, we used zucchinis.  No one actually had to stay, because they got too many angry letters, but I thought it was entertaining.  They were unlubricated, so I tried to make balloon animals.
ZUCCHINI!

I'd say what a useless waste of money, but there's one thing these screaming babies are teaching me. When you think you know everything about birth control, you fuck up.

What will be hilarious is if they somehow find this forum ten years from now, and see their daddy admitting they were mistakes.  Won't that be awkward.

This is what I read.

Rational rational rational understandable rational reasonable rational. The whole thing was thought up by a hippy INSANE STUPID RIDICULOUS ASININE HEDONIST CHILDISH INDULGENT NUTJOB BULLSHIT.

Hippy is one of my trigger words. You'd be better off waving a red cape at a bull towing a dozen lawnmowers.

This is why most Wiccans I know of just choose not to talk about what they believe. They can't do so without having someone judge them on the spot and start throwing out terms. To put it terms staunch Christians might under stand, it's like walking up to every Catholic you see and screaming "PEDOPHILE" as though the entire religion condones it.

The fact one group criticizes another over believing in god-like powers of the natural world, without being able to prove it, is also hilarious. But then again the Church never was big on relativism.

I think you may have replied to my jest with a personal attack, sir. I don't know if I should chide you or invite you to the club.

By my troth!

Forsooth!

Various other Shakespearey terms I don't really understand the meaning of!!!

Kinda funny how disney always talks about magic while at the same time apparently promoting "good christian values" while trying to get prepubescent children with sex appeal....  Disney is just so damn evil.

Though actually they're evil for totally different reasons.
