Ya know you’re becoming a celebrity when the Mormon Church feels forced to warn their faithful against you.
Go HERE to see their write-up on “Goddess Worship.” (Actually, they make us sound quite good! Oh, well, I know you tried hard, Mormon-guy writer, but you can’t win ‘em all!) Here are a few snippets from Mormon guy’s write-up:
“Organization Structure: This [Goddess Movement] philosophy transcends a number of organizations and movements. Lacking its own organizational structure, goddess worship permeates and affects such diverse and seemingly unrelated areas as radical feminism, Jungian psychology, general Pantheism and extreme environmentalism.”I gotta tell ya, noting offends me but that last sentence. I don’t think we’re creeping into society! I think we’re barreling into it!!!
“Not only has the Goddess been written about in New Age/Occult books, touted by noted psychologists as being a universal part of the human psyche, and heralded as a rallying point for anti-Christian feminists, she is also being spoken of in public schools throughout America. [GASP!]
“Tal Brooke, a Christian author and researcher with the Spiritual Counterfeits Project in Berkeley, California stated, 'Children watch plays about Mother Earth; they are taught that to despoil the goddess who gave them birth by polluting the environment is more than just ecological crime, it is essentially blasphemy.'
“…Jalaja Bonheim’s … Walking Prayer for the Earth …: ‘The earth is not dead matter. She is alive. Now begin to speak to the earth as you walk. You can speak out loud, or just talk to her in your mind. Send your love into her with your exhalation…. I ask forgiveness for having injured you. Forgive us, Mother Earth.’
“Thus, from radical feminism and pagan witchcraft to elementary school textbooks, Goddess worship, in its many manifestations, is ever creeping into modern society.”
