Don't let them taunt you about Gareth's Blessing Ceremony. That's why I suggested Gareth can explain that himself. But only if he wants to; as, after all' he is under no obligation just as you are not. I can only ask him, that's all.
Um...how is it "taunting", Dave? Are you saying that Barbara's incapable of even answering questions directed to her? I mean, she was there
. She's a Roman Catholic and she assisted you and Gareth conducting a pagan ceremony over grounds you trespassed on. I was merely asking how she resolves this within her Catholic faith.
If Gareth wants to talk about the "blessing ceremony", then by all means. But it's hardly gonna make a difference in my questions to her
, is it?
I expect youv'e seen the latest about suggestions that I produce my Initiation documents! Good Lord, talk about me breaking sacred oaths; I'm actually being asked to 'cast my pearls before swine' - as it warns of doing in the bible no less!
So, in other words, you won't produce the documents. Why doesn't that surprise me... And my comment about having them authenticated? Conveniently dodged.
To add insult to injury you a) adopt a superior attitude about them b) misuse a Biblical allusion to an allegedly Wiccan
document. Also, why are you even appealing to Barbara as a defence...considering she's Roman Catholic
Are you expecting her to back you up on these Wiccan documents (which I bet she hasn't even seen).
As to them being so (conveniently) secret...not doing a good job by mentioning
them, are ya?
I don't know that he's actually offered any...?
You're right...he hasn't! But apparently, those who dispute Wicca's "ancient" origins are the ignorant
ones (that'd include you)!
So, again, Dave
, I'm calling you out. You say you have or you've seen manuscripts confirming the ancientness of Wicca. By all means, share them here. Forget this "pearls before swine" crap.
Also, would you like me to find someone who can authenticate them for ya? After all, you're sitting on some pretty significant historical documents (presuming they even exist) that'd turn scholarship on Wicca on its head. Go on. What've you got to lose?
Speaking as someone who (until recently) was suspended for "personal attacks" and/or accusing people of being frauds (depending on who you ask), I do find it highly hypocritical that you and Dave have been able to publish half
the stuff you have on here.
That said, I am not justifying Ven's actions. Far from it. But that's my general attitude: make an accusation against someone, you bloody well back it up.
So, if you demand an apology from him, I could just as easily ask for one from you and your accomplice, Dave (who refuses to do so himself, despite several false comments about me and general insults).
Oh, and by the way, could you refrain from CAPS, please. If you don't know how to use the quote function, I'm happy to teach ya.
