    Dianic Faith: Goddess only, right?

    I've never met a Dianic or really been able to find anything definitive on the practice.

    From what I gather Dianic paths are influenced by Wicca, they have much the same practice, spells, and the Goddess seems to be the same in a way. I know some follow Diana only, others however still seem to be just follow a supreme Goddess.

    However, Dianic faiths do not incorporate the God? Correct? <_^

    Depends on the Dianic in question. Some of them do worship just a Goddess, others worship both but differently, etc.. Many Dianics do have practices similar to Wicca, though they don't all practice the same way.

    McFarland Dianics not only have the God, men are in circle, as well.

    It seems some folks confuse "secrets" with Mysteries.
    The Mysteries aren't secret.
    They are there for whoever wishes to seek them out.
    There just aren't any shortcuts.

    That's the Secret.

    I'm under the impression however they are not looked upon as being equal though, in the way that tradition Wicca describes the relationship?

    Depends on which Dianic you talk to. Some do treat them equally but separately, i.e. they don't have rituals or altars together. Others don't recognize the God and don't have any connection whatsoever with Him. But most don't have the type of relationship that traditional Wicca describes.

    Isn't it true though that unless they are literal Dianics(worshiping the Goddess Diana) many of them are actually worshiping a deity from the Wiccan faith and then ignoring another deity? o_O

    No. Dianics can worship a lot of different Goddesses, and not just Diana. What is the deity from the "Wiccan" faith?

    I am referring to the all around Goddess worshiped in Wicca. I know little of Dianic practice, that's why I'm asking these questions.

    Asking questions is perfectly fine. The all around Goddess that is worshiped by many Dianics isn't really Wiccan in nature, but could have many aspects that are similar. It really depends on the Dianic practitioner.
