Quote# 74598

["how you can equate what Scripture is talking about (Satan worship, paganism, child sacrifice, ordering one's life around superstition, etc.) with fictional/fantastic literature that has no basis in true reality, and uses fanciful magic merely as a plot device."]


Witchcraft is "true reality" and not something to be toyed with. In high school a friend was toying with various aspects of witchcraft, things went wrong and his house burned down.

There have been those who practice witchcraft (by a variety of names) in this area who are known to have accomplished "magical" things.

If one proclaims fictional witchcraft to be acceptable, then that would logically extend to fictional works depicting "good" homosexuality or "good" adultery.

- I can summon spirits from the vasty deep!

- Ay, so can I, and so can any man, but will they come when you do call them?

Next thing you know they will be trying to portray a "good" fundie or even better a "smart" religious person

I think we've got an Unintentional Honesty award nominee here, folks.

Someone tell this guy that fire != witchcraft.
It does look cool, but still, just a chemical reaction.

Was this high school friend using candles in some sort of "magical ritual" and his curtains caught on fire, or something?

Because I doubt that's divine intervention of any sort, I think that's a very basic cause-effect situation. You know, Cause: Joe Average lights candles near something flammable. Effect: Shit catches on fire.

My Pagan and Wiccan friends are doing just fine, thank you. They've given me some things and talked to me about their spirituality and rituals and I'm just fine as well. But no, we can't talk about the good heathens, can we?

And aside from a case of coincidence with the housefire (because no one else ever has housefires, amirite), you can't show, or prove any of these "magical things" you claim, I'd bet.

And a slippery slope for the fail.

Btw, oh so, well, really not smart one, you realise your religion falls under the fictional classification, right?

> a friend was toying with various aspects of witchcraft, things went wrong and his house burned down.

Oh, I see! Careless use of candles!

...but don't Christmas decorations cause far more house fires than pagan candle failures, due to the fact that it's a far more wide-spread religion? I mean, there's bound to be dozens of many-child families where toddlers spread good holiday cheer by thrusting burning candles in the curtains? When faced with incompetency, even God is helpless.

Witchcraft is "true reality" and not something to be toyed with.


--- BS

In high school a friend was toying with various aspects of witchcraft, things went wrong and his house burned down.

--- This needs proof, or it is just a lie for Jebus.

There have been those who practice witchcraft (by a variety of names) in this area who are known to have accomplished "magical" things.

--- Proof or it hasn't happened and is just lying for Jebus - again!

If one proclaims fictional witchcraft to be acceptable, then that would logically extend to fictional works depicting "good" homosexuality or "good" adultery.

--- Bullshite, there is no logical link here, and John 81 knows it. Or, in the unlikely event he really believes it, it's time for the men in white coats to take him away, ha-ha!

"In high school a friend was toying with various aspects of witchcraft, things went wrong and his house burned down."

I know you're supposed to keep your unprovable bullshit anecdotes non-specific, but I think you went too far. WHAT high school? WHOSE friend? HOW did things go wrong? THIS IS EXTREMELY GENERIC.

Homosexuality isn't good or bad; it exists, and that is sufficient.

Fictional works depicting good homosexuality are acceptable. Real life "good" homosexuality is acceptable. Get with the program, John81.

The word is "magickal".

I only committed adultery once. But believe me, it was very good indeed. So it looks like your prophecy has come at least partly true!

7/24/2010 3:36:07 PM

I read about the afterlife

Having read more books than you (not a hard feat), I can indeed tell you without a doubt that there are fictional works that depict good homosexuality.

Shocking, isn't?

"In high school a friend was toying with various aspects of witchcraft, things went wrong and his house burned down."

Lying for jeebus is STILL lying.

And silly me here thinking that bearing false witness was a sin.


"If one proclaims fictional witchcraft to be acceptable, then that would logically extend to fictional works depicting "good" homosexuality or "good" adultery."

Um, except those things are REAL you fucking loon.

In high school a friend was a fundamentalist Baptist and his house burned down, too. Maybe God just doesn't give a shit whose house burns down. Ever think of that?

Witchcraft just like your god, are figments of human imagination and not reality!

Good grief - people are fucking stupid!

Beware the dry Christmas tree. They burn. Beware faulty wires. They burn. Beware misplaced candles. They burn. Ignore chants. They DON'T burn.

Let me guess- said friend was screwing around with candles, left them too close to the couch or his mom's drapes, and shit caught fire.

Witchcraft is bad because something bad happened once?

Uh, can you be a little bit less specific?

And many of such works exist. All of them just fine you pathetic book burning twat.

And when good "Christians Homes" get hit Electrical shorts, or lightning strikes, are those of witch craft too?

I've been 'toying' with shamanism/witchcraft for 40+ yrs. No house fires here, no disasters, just the normal ebb and flow of life.


7/24/2010 6:16:08 PM



things went wrong and his house burned down.

Like him lighting some candles for a "ritual" and one of them falling down or being put too close to something flammable? The lesson here is not to play with fire under any condition, not to say people can't pretend that they're casting spells. Because that's just what it is: pretend.
