Church of England creating ‘pagan church’ to recruit members

Posted by doctore0 on September 2, 2013


The Church of England is trying to recruit pagans and spiritual believers as part of a drive to retain congregation numbers.
The church is training ministers to create โ€œa pagan church where Christianity [is] very much in the centreโ€ to attract spiritual believers.

Ministers are being trained to create new forms of Anglicanism suitable for people of alternative beliefs as part of a Church of England drive to retain congregation numbers.

Reverend Steve Hollinghurst, a researcher and adviser in new religious movements told the BBC: โ€œI would be looking to formulate an exploration of the Christian faith that would be at home in their culture.โ€

He said it would be โ€œalmost to create a pagan church where Christianity was very much in the centre.โ€

The Church Mission Society, which is training ministers to โ€œbreak new groundโ€, hopes to see a number of spiritual people align themselves with Christianity.

Posted by doctore0 on June 21, 2013

Dave Rubin and the panel discuss The Wiccan Family Temple Academy of Pagan Studies in NYC, a real pagan academy that trains adults to become real-life witches.

High Priestess Starr Ravenhawk told the New York Times, “If people really knew what we are about, they would know that studying to become a good witch is no different than studying to become a good Catholic.

Religion is the most silly and destructive thing humans have created, ever!

Atheists signs on People Mover buses in Anchorage

Posted by doctore0 on December 12, 2012

ANCHORAGE – Christians like to say that Jesus is โ€œthe reason for the season.โ€

But a group of atheists say no time of year should be free from โ€œpagan reverie.โ€

To that end, Anchorage city buses are carrying some very non-traditional Christmas messages. The Freedom From Religion Foundation of Madison, Wisconsin, has spent decades fighting for the secularization of America.

Robertson: “Miserable” Atheists Trying to “Steal” Christmas

Posted by doctore0 on November 19, 2012

No Pat, it’s christians who stole the season in the first place and now wanting to plaster their Jesus idols all over the place, hence going against the bible and being total assholes… Speaking about “christmas” trees, what does your bible have to say about them, lets see.

Jeremiah 10:1-25
10:2 Thus says the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
10:3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
10:4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.
10:5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.โ€

Happy holidays,yule,saturnalia,solstice…,christmas Pat, hope your magic man won’t be too pissed at you for the pagan tree worship, like, torture you forever with fire and stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is my yule cat enjoying our “atheist” yule-tree ๐Ÿ™‚

Pagan mom challenges Bible giveaway at North Carolina school

Posted by doctore0 on January 19, 2012

If one magic book is allowed, all magic books must be allowed

WEAVERVILLE, N.C. — A North Carolina mother says her son’s school is refusing books supportive of her pagan beliefs after last month offering Bibles.

Buncombe County school officials are not accepting donations that could be viewed as advocating a religion while attorneys review policies.

Ginger Strivelli says that’s a change that blocks her from donating books affirming her pagan beliefs to her son’s North Windy Ridge school in Weaverville. Strivelli says the school’s principal had said she would handle all donated religious books in the same way as the donated Bibles made available to children who wanted them.

Strivelli says her fifth-grade son felt peer pressure to collect the Bible he brought home.

She says if schools allow one religion a place in schools they should be open to all religions.
