“Lol, do you guys realize that you sound exactly like fundie fascist Christians with all this God the Father is Evil and should be obliterated …?”
Here’s the difference, Lisa:
Fundies wanna squash all other deities because their god Jehovah says to.
I wanna squash male deities because of RATIONAL evidence that male gods squash the world.
See the difference?
Jehovah says, “Pitch all other gods, because I am a jealous god.”
Science and history say, “Pitch male gods, because they’ve done a number on humankind.”
I’m calling for peaceful separation of my people from male gods in the same way Ghandi called for peaceful separation of his people from the British. The British were hurting Indians; male gods are hurting humans (see my May 14 post).
Lisa, I challenge you: Are you gonna let male gods threaten life on earth, or will you be Ghandi and stand in their way?
Now, you might think Morgaine and I are just two lonely souls wandering in the wilderness, here, and if that’s the case, go to my April 20 post and read Women’s Studies professor Ellie Amico on the relationship between female divinity, peace, prosperity, equality and non-violence. Or go to April 10 and read Lynn Keller, Director of the Women's Spirituality Ph.D. programs at the California Institute of Integral Studies on the same topic. Or June 9, author Riane Eisler, also on the same topic. Or May 4, anthropologist Marvin Harris on how the highest war casualties come from Christian countries. Or June 20, psychologist James Hillman, author of A Terrible Love of War, and his argument that male gods are the source of war. Or June 29, world-famous archaeologist Marija Gimbutas, who makes the case for the “Goddess is to peace as god is to war” equation. There are even more good posts back there somewhere; these are just a few I’ve pulled out for you.
