    he he he he he!

    I really do have to say as far as the morals go...
    That i have my OWN set of morals, and as far as mine go I would be considered a good Christian, even though i am pagan...

    You can not judge one religion on it's morals, it is the people that follow it. There are many Christians that have bad/low morals, yet they are Christain, and the same goes for any religion. :D

    Pstt and if you are thinking about the sex b/f marriage thing ... that was brought to by the Priests, it wasn't any rule that God made. They made that so the church would not have to pay for illegitimate children "of the church" if you catch my meaning. I learned that from a priest in my world religion class lol.

    FOR THE HORDE!

    Someone calling themselves Christian and being Christian can be very different, indeed. They're not supposed to be Christians, by any standard outside of their own twisted ideas. No one accepts them as a Christian organisation, except for others like them.

    But, in their minds, what they are doing is in the name of God. Thus...to them it's moral. Quite sad. Kinda like all the holy wars over seas..but that is waaaaaaaaaaaaay OT.

    Why did you leave Christianity?
    I was raised Catholic, but they kind that only go to church for weddings. Although my family was not very religious, I was baptized and my parents placed me in catechism. I told my mom I didn't want to continue and do my confirmation and she was fine with that. I must have been around 10. As a child, Christianity just didn't click. I just didn't understand it.

    When I first read Mythology by Edith Hamilton in junior high school, I knew there was something more to it. I immediately adopted Artemis as my goddess. It wasn't until high school that I even discovered Wicca. I was ecstatic, but over time, I realized that wasn't quite right for me either although it did shape me tremendously. Today, I just consider myself an eclectic Pagan witch.

    Lilith, with all due respect, the KKK's practices do not line up with the teachings of the Bible. Because of this, it is easy to see that they are certainly not representative of Christianity.
