Wine, Women & World Peace

“A neuro-psychologist contends that the greatest threat to world peace comes from those nations which have the most depriving environments for their children and which are most repressive of sexual affection and female sexuality.”


“Violence against sexuality and the use of sexuality for violence, particularly against women, has very deep roots in Biblical tradition.”

Thnx to Morgaine at The-Goddess for these quotations; both come from an article by neuropsychologist James W. Prescott called "Body Pleasure and the Origins of Violence." [Of course it goes without saying that the Quran is just as bad as the Bible when it comes to violence against sexuality.]
Thnx to Bretz and DSC-N1 for the fotos

Ever hear of an English Goddess? Not Irish, not Welsh -- English. Well, if ya have, you’re one up on me! The author of a book I’m beginning says the Goddess of England was named “Sovereignty.” The book? Caitlin Matthews’ King Arthur and the Goddess of the Land. Here’s a snippet from it:

In this volume my intention is to reveal the Goddess Herself in Her specific guise of Sovereignty [Goddess of the Land]. The Goddess of the Land and Her many representatives seem to me to stand at the very center of Arthurian legend. [T]he king ultimately derives his sovereignty from Her.” (p. xv)
In the realm of this Goddess, what was the source of evil? Sometimes it was merely a matter of the king marrying the wrong woman:

Sometimes the forces of the land are out of alignment because the king’s wife is an unworthy representative of Sovereignty [i.e., the Goddess]…. Their marriage is not a true union and the land[/Goddess] reflects this imbalance by ailing in milk and grain.” (p. 17)

From King Arthur and the Goddess of the Land: The Diving Feminine in the Mabinogion, by Caitlin Matthews, 2002.
In other words, brutal, violent Goddesses are unnecessary. Other ways exist to explain evil. Violent Goddesses are inventions of a patriarchy wanting to weaken Goddess religion in general.

What do you think?
Thnx to Susan Seddon Boulet for the painting of the Lady of the Lake (Goddess of the Lake; Celtic)(foto taken from a copy I own of this painting).

Here's a jewel of a site: It’s about the world’s peaceful societies. You say you didn’t know there were any? Well then check it out, because this site makes it clearer than a crystal that humans are not born to make war. You have to craft people into warriors and destroyers, ‘cause they don’t just waltz into the world that way.

These guys have no war, no violence, no murder, no assault, no rape, no brutality, no gang war, no arson, no purse snatching, and no sneezing into someone else’s soup.

Many of the peaceful societies hold their nonviolence at the centers of their belief systems. In contrast, many people in contemporary societies tend to minimize the peace elements in their faith traditions in order to foster social agendas that depend on continued violence.” MORE >>>
Wish I could tell you that none of this site’s 25 societies worship warrior gods. I’d eat my hat if the first 23 did, but the last two – the Amish and the Hutterites – worship Mr. Jehovah. For most of the others, religion isn’t described. (Which makes me suspicious; wanna take bets that many are, in fact, Goddess worshippers?) __________

The Goddess Selene

Anne at The Gods Are Bored wondered where to get a copy of Susan Seddon Boulet's The Goddess Selene (see above). I did a quick survey for prints, and came up empty-handed. I did find, however, a large book with the Selene painting in it:

Just click on the picture to get to where you can check out and/or buy this book.

Documents Show Secret Deal on Ports Sale

"7:11 a.m. ET, Thursday, Feb. 23, 2006
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Under a secretive agreement with the Bush administration, a company in the United Arab Emirates promised to cooperate with U.S. investigations as a condition of its takeover of operations at six major American ports, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. ...[T]he administration chose not to require state-owned Dubai Ports World to keep copies of its business records on U.S. soil, where they would be subject to orders by American courts."MORE >>>
Gee, I wonder why George Washington didn't think of that? If he'd sold our ports to the British, it woulda made 'em play nice and forget the war.

Seriously, I'm thinking Morgaine at The-Goddess might be right: the Bush Crime Family may be secretly and literally selling America to one of the fabulously wealthy Middle Eastern monarchs. Can you think of a better explanation for the AP story above?


In May, Turning Point Gallery in PA will be auctioning off original works by Susan Seddon-Boulet. This is a painting by Seddon-Boulet of the Goddess Selene, which I photographed from a copy I own. Although the person the Goddess holds and protects in her arms could be any of her children, man or a woman, Seddon-Boulet meant it to be the mortal Endymion, a man.

Dust_of_Stars Asks:
After passing a Catholic school the other day I started wondering. If pagans had private schools … other than the basic math, English, and science, what kind of subjects would be taught?
To which NightLad answers:
“If you had 2 acorns and you planted one acorn, how many acorns would you have? Um… Jimmy, do you want to answer?”

“1 acorn, Miss Moonflowersummerroserainprancer?”

“Good try Jimmy, but the correct answer is: the Earth Mother would accept the acorn you planted into her warm dark womb and give it life, creating a beautiful acorn tree that would in turn produce hundreds of more acorns. Plus the one you still have in your hand.”


But seriously… I imagine there being some meditation/relaxation classes. Stress management, peer counseling, first-aid as well as alternative healing methods. Basic herbology might be a good course. (An actor here in Canada died after eating monkshood he mistook for wild celery while on a nature walk.)


Whoa! Is this an idea whose time has come? Private Goddess schools for our children? What do you think? What classes would you add to the curriculum?
Thnx to al-ex for the oak foto

SHOCKING similarities

DID YOU KNOW that Islam, like Christianity, promises the return of the Messiah? Go HERE for more.

That it, too, preaches Armageddon (the violent end of the world)? Go HERE for more.

And don’t forget: the holy stories of each religion feature the same cast of characters (see my Feb. 9 post “Quiz”):

Elias (Elijah)
Jonah (Jonas)

But don’t take my word for it: Google “Quran” and “Abraham” or “Quran” and “Adam” and see for yourself.

Kiddies, Christianity and Islam are the same primitive, violent, desert “religion” with a few minor tweakings to give each its own flavor.

Ever wonder why almost the entire world, now, practises either Christianity or Islam? It’s because our ancestors were tortured nonstop until they promised to brainwash us, their descendents, into becoming believers.

But remember – I can’t say it often enough – it’s not people who are at fault here. All of us are born lovable. It’s the systems sitting on top of our heads that’s the problem.

Christians Caused the Dark Ages? GET OUT!

BY POPULAR DEMAND: The “argument” that it was Christianity that pitched Europe into the Dark Ages:

Western histories have put forth many theories about the fall of Rome and attributed the onset of the Dark Age to a wide variety of causes, except the one cause that may have had more to do with it than any other: Christianity. 1

“…Christians said one of the diabolic symptoms of the oncoming end of the world was ‘the spread of knowledge,’ which they endeavored to check with wholesale book burnings, destruction of libraries and schools, and opposition to education for laymen. 2 By the end of the 5th century, Christian rulers forcibly abolished the study of philosophy, mathematics, medicine, and geography. Lactantius said no Christian should study astronomy. Pope Gregory the Great denounced all secular education as folly and wickedness, and forbade Christian laymen to read even the Bible…. 3

“Pagan intellectuals and teachers were persecuted and schools were closed. Christian emperors commanded the burning of all books of the philosophers …. After years of vandalism and destruction, St. John Chrysostom proudly boasted, ‘Every trace of the old philosophy and literature of the ancient world has vanished from the face of the earth.’ 4

“…After temples were destroyed, monks and hermits were settled in the ruins to defile the site with their excrement, and to prevent reconstruction. 6

“Rulers melted down bronze, gold, and silver artworks for money. Peasants broke up marble gods and Goddesses and fed their pieces into limekilns for mortar. 7 It is recorded that 4th-century Rome had 424 temples, 304 shrines, 80 statues of deities in precious metal, 64 statues of ivory, 3,700 statues in bronze, and thousands in marble. By the next century, nearly all of them were gone…. 8

“Bertrand Russell described the philosophical outlook of St. Jerome: ‘He thinks the preservation of virginity more important than victory over the Huns and Vandals and Goths. Never once do his thoughts turn to any possible measure of practical statesmanship; never once does he point out the evils of the fiscal system, or of reliance on an army composed of barbarians. The same is true of Ambrose and Augustine…. It is no wonder that the Empire fell into ruin.’ 11

Suppression of the teaching priestess or ‘alma mater’ led to an eclipse of education in general.

“Church historians have claimed nothing of real value was lost in the destruction of pagan culture. Modern scholars disagree. The havoc that afflicted art, science, literature, philosophy, engineering, architecture and all other fields of achievement has been likened to the havoc of the Gigantomachia – as if the crude giants overthrew the intelligent gods. The widespread literacy of the classical period disappeared. Aqueducts, harbors, buildings, even the splendid Roman roads fell into ruin. …. Centuries of devastating war could hardly have shattered Roman civilization as effectively as did its new obsession with an ascetic monotheism. 24

“…The study of medicine was forbidden, on the ground that all diseases were caused by demons…. 26

“Priestesses were especially persecuted, because they were female, wealthy, and laid claim to spiritual authority. 27

“By denying women’s spiritual significance and forbidding Goddess worship, the church [also] alienated both sexes from their pagan sense of unity with the divine through each other.
From my footnotes you can see I typed only about a quarter of Walker’s argument before my typing fingers fell asleep. I can’t recommend The Women’s Encyclopedia highly enough. And if possible, buy the hardcover – this is a thick book that doesn’t hold up well in a soft cover.

If you’d like full citations for any of the footnoted sources, let me know.

The foto of Sean Connery and Christian Slater comes from Jean-Jacques Annaud's 1986 film, The Name of the Rose, based on the Italian book by Umberto Eco. This film takes place in the Dark Ages,

“… in an isolated and massive Dominican [Christian] Abbey…. [It] shows the dark side of monastery life, a life of sexual deprivation and literary censorship that brings out weird emotions in people. This story … shows the drudgery, fear, and harsh religion of the European Dark Ages, in a way I haven't seen before in a film…. This is easily a controversial film, what with its straightforward look at Catholicism….”

The DANGERS of DANISH Cartooning

Well, here’s thrilling news: The Taliban is contributing 100 kilos of gold to any dude able to off a Danish drawer of the Mohammed cartoons, and a Pakastani jewelers association has promised another $1,000,000.

“One of the 12 Danish cartoonists who drew the caricatures has told a German newspaper he now faces at least two death threats, saying all 12 cartoonists were under police protection.”
(“Son, forget about cartooning. Why not go into something safer -- like bronco busting or the demolition derby?”)


In a comment left on Feb. 9, Paxton raises an extremely important issue:

He says:

I was under the impression that the original Christian converts were victims of torture, not perpetrators of it. Either you have a skewed understanding of ‘original’ or I have a skewed understanding of history.”
I’m afraid, Paxton, that the "skewing" belongs to you. The ancient Romans were notoriously nice to all religions. When early Christians began looting, rioting, burning, and violently barging in on the religious services of others, however, the Romans stepped in:

“Contrary to the conventional mythology, Christians were not persecuted under Roman law for being Christians, but for committing civil crimes. They caused riots, ‘often tumultuously interrupted the public worship, and continually railed against the public religion.’ They seemed to have been guilty of vandalism and arson. The Great Fire in 64 A.D. was set by Christians who were ‘anxiously waiting for the world to end by fire and who did at times start fires in order to prompt God…’ (Walker, The Women’s Encyclopedia, 1983: pp 209-210).
This is just a small taste of Walker’s mind-boggling essay on the barbarity of the early Christians. Her sources: Guy R. Phillips, Brigantia; J. de Voragine, The Golden Legend; Knight, Discourse on the Worship of Priapus; de Camp, The Ancient Engineers; and several others. Walker even goes so far as to suggest that, more than any other factor, it was Christianity that pulled Europe into the Dark Ages.

Paxton: Don’t feel bad -- you’re not alone. Most everyone has been hoodwinked. "History," afterall, is written by the conquerers.

Thnx to THIS SITE for the foto of the sacred statue of the Goddess Ceres (Demeter). Her nose is missing because early Christians aimed to destroy all reminders of all religions but their own. When they lacked the strength to break up entire statues, they broke off what pieces they could. Cute, huh?

feeling FRISKY

Well, minor surgery over with, and I’m back and feeling friskier than ever about the mission: gently replacing god the father with God the Mother by the year 2025.

I predict that over the next 19 years, the world will slowly begin to see the magnitude of the pain produced by the godFather religions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism).

Both women and men will finally realize the horror, ugliness and illness these primitive warrior-god religions have spread around the globe. Mothers will wake up to the truth: allowing their children to dabble in these primitive religions will drag them into the perpetual war these so-called “religions” have kept alive for the past 6000 years.

The world will see with fresh eyes the silliness of the idea that life and love stem from divine maleness – and from maleness minus femaleness! “Ta dah! I give you: Jehovah, Yahweh, Vishnu and Allah! The miracle boys, who cook up life from human ribs!”

We’ll become entranced with that era 6000 years ago when female deity was the font of life -- and when war, poverty, social class and human degradation were unknown.

Hey, all you dynamite people: We need truth, love and justice. The warrior gods have had 6000 years to deliver the goods, and they’ve bombed. Please: look with fresh eyes at these primitive god-dudes, and tell me you see anything but silliness.
Thnx to mmagallan for the foto of friskiness

GOP Solicits Church Membership Directories... Again

The Interfaith Alliance is outraged: the North Carolina state Republican Party office is asking religious leaders for their church directories. The request was sent by email Thursday and several area pastors have already said they will not divulge their lists, citing inappropriate entanglement of partisan politics and religion. Read news article.

In response to this alarming news, Rev. Dr. Welton Gaddy, President of The Interfaith Alliance (TIA) and Pastor for Preaching and Worship at Northminster (Baptist) Church in Monroe, Louisiana, released the following statement:

“As the pastor of a local congregation, if I found out that my church membership directory was shared with a campaign or political party, I would begin immediate legal action against the campaign or political party. It's a serious mistake to consider worshipers in religious institutions as just another bloc of voters like farmers, labor unions, and corporate executives.

“Collecting church directories intrudes on the integrity of houses of worship and compromises them by classifying them as political organizing tools. I am fearful that initiatives like this by any of the political parties will lure religious organizations and religious leaders into dangerous, unconstitutional territory. Even worse, proponents of such list-gathering are leading religious leaders into the temptation of forfeiting the prophetic voice of religion.

“Furthermore, the national GOP says the collection of church directories is for voter registration efforts. No one bought that defense during the 2004 elections and we won’t buy it in 2006 either. The role of religion and values in the 2004 election was that of a political strategy employed to achieve a political goal – winning an election – [and] there is no reason to believe that has ... changed.”

The Interfaith Alliance's national office will continue to monitor this issue and we request you - our members -to be vigilant about political parties in your home state engaging in similar unconstitutional practices. Please contact us (policy@interfaithalliance.org) if you hear about such list-gathering in your local area.

For more information, please see TIA's Guide for Houses of Worship In An Election Year - This guide offers legal and ethical counsel on how religious leaders, congregations and religious institutions may appropriately participate in the electoral process.

BE nobody's DARLING

Tuned in to Democracy Now, tonight, and snagged the tail end of an interview with acclaimed author Alice Walker. What a Goddess! I think we Goddess followers (at least those of us trying to go beyond weaving flowers in our hair) could profit by listening to black women. Walker read her power-drenched poem "Be Nobody's Darling":

Be nobody's darling;
Be an outcast. Take the contradictions
Of your life
And wrap around
You like a shawl,
To parry stones
To keep you warm.

Watch the people succumb
To madness
With ample cheer;
Let them look askance at you
And you askance reply.

Be an outcast;
Be pleased to walk alone (Uncool)
Or line the crowded
River beds
With other impetuous

Make a merry gathering
On the bank
Where thousands perished
For brave hurt words
They said.

Be nobody's darling;
Be an outcast.
Qualified to live
Among your dead.

Researching THE GODDESS

The Goddess put in an appearance at the American Academy of Religion this past November.

"The American Academy of Religion (AAR) is one of the major professional associations of scholars of religion in the United States. Every year in November, scholars of religion from all over the world gather somewhere in the United States for the annual conference of the AAR....


"One of the largest divisions of the AAR, the Women and Religion Section, chose to devote one of its panels this year to a Goddess-related theme, Innovative Methodologies in the Study of Goddess.


"This whole question of how to research the Goddesses has been one that has drawn some critical argument in recent years. Some scholars have criticized such giants as Marija Gimbutas for her methodology in studying the Goddesses…."

“Faith” is what you grab onto when you don’t really have a deity worth its salt. Faith is especially important when your religion is slapped together and makes little sense. Example: Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The Father roars, “Kill and make war!” while the son whispers, “Love and be poor.” (The Ghost is mum). The result? General confusion. Whaddya go with – killing or loving?!? And who’s the Ghost, anyway? At this point, “faith” gets invented. Definition of “faith”: “Sit down, shut up, do as you’re told, or god will hurt you.”

Real religion can be seen and felt. No one needs “faith” in the green wingback chair sitting in your living room. It’s there, and you know it. It makes sense. Likewise, Goddess worshippers don’t need faith, since the Goddess too can be seen, touched, and heard. She’s the trees behind your house. She’s the wind rippling through the trees. She’s the brown earth, the hills, the green plants sprouting in spring. She’s you when you look in a mirror. She’s logical: she’s the Female source of all life. She says “Love others as all good mothers love their children.”

When our kids are born is when we run to the shelf and pull down “faith.” When our children say, “But Daddy, why didn’t Eve get born from a mommy? You said everything gets born from a mommy,” we need Faith.

When the dear darlings say “Hows cum god says fight wars but Jesus says have peace? Who’s right?” you need Faith.

One falls back on faith at “Mommy, hows cum god says to stone people to death? (Lev. 20 et al.)” or “Hows cum god turned her into a pillar of salt? You said he loves everybody!” or “Hows cum everybody in the Bible is a boy? Doesn’t god love girls?” or “Why did god set fire to people?” (Gen. 38:24; Lev. 20: 14) or “Why did god tell that daddy to burn his little boy?” or “But, but – how did Cain get married, ‘cuz where did the girl come from?” or “God lied! He said Adam would die if he ate the apple, and Adam didn’t die!” or “But, but, but – you just read that god made the plants first! And now here it says the people came first and then the plants! (Gen. 1 vs. Gen. 2)”

When you can’t see, feel or hear a deity, that’s bad enough. But when the deity also defies logic -- that’s a crime. But, hey. When you use torture to get anyone to “join” your “religion” (which is how Christianity and Islam originally bagged virtually ALL converts), who needs logic?

Nevertheless, “faith” helps. “Why? Because I said so! Shut up, and do as you’re told, or god will hurt you!”

The GodFather SPEAKS

Please show THIS SITE to everyone you know who's thinking about becoming muslim.

Tell them to watch the live videos of two people being stoned to death (for adultery) and of the man having a hand and foot cut off (for stealing). Both the stoners and the cutters are following instructions directly from muhammed and the quran. I don’t have much to say. My head's swimming in a pool of shocked, sickened sadness.

WARNING: Do not watch if you're squeamish.

I will say this, however: the Danish cartoons (see yesterday's post) of muhammed now feel too mealy-mouthed. They almost beautify a "religion" that is damnably, monstrously evil. But as I've said time and time again, Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Hinduism are not religions. They are political control mechanisms masquerading as religions. These videos give you an insider's view of how that control is achieved. This is how the Goddess and Her religion was wrenched away from us. And these are only a few of the milder techniques used.

Thanks to the Leaping Rabbit for directions to this site, which is run by ex-Muslims trying to get the word out about the horror that is Islam. But remember: it’s not people who are bad; it’s the GodFather in our heads that's killing us.

Goddess love & protect us all,

THE GODDESS LOOKS AT Freedom of Speech

The deal is some Danish dude printed some cartoons of Muhammed in his newspaper, and the Islamic world is going nuts. Danish flags are being burned, and Europeans in Muslim countries are being threatened and beaten up. So the dude apologized. Now there’s a huge debate: are Muslims now telling the rest of the world what we can and can’t say?

What do you think? Should this dude have aplogized?

Last Thursday, the Texas woman who drowned her children in a bathtub, moved from jail to a mental hospital. Hauntingly, before Andrea Yates murdered her five kids, she’d suffered harrassment for nine years at the hands of one Michael Woroniecki, a Christian minister/monster who “…taught that it was better for parents to commit suicide than cause their offspring to stumble and go to hell. Only two months after receiving ... harsh letters from the Woronieckis, Andrea was hospitalized twice for two separate suicide attempts.”

Woroniecki also ordered men to saddle women and ride them like horses, pumping as many sperm into them “as nature allows.” Accordingly, Andrea’s hubby rode to orders, even though her psychiatrist warned him that having more children would "guarantee future psychotic depression" for his wife.

In addition to Andrea, this Christian animal Woroniecki almost bled others to death as well: “Several ex-disciples claim to have become depressed or anxious to the point of contemplating or attempting suicide.”


Is Woroniecki crazy? No. Horrifyingly, everything he says and does is solidly backed by doctrine that's 100% accepted by our society.

But here’s what’s most dangerous: moderate Christians say, “Oh, well. That’s not us. We’re good.”

No. Hunh, uhn. Slap yourselves and wake up, dudes. Your bible is poison. To one degree or another, it sickens everyone who touches it. Many, like Andrea Yates and Michael Woroniecki, are damaged beyond recognition. But your “holy” book shoots torture, sin, ugliness and war into the heads of anyone who reads it, like arrows into tree bark. The roadmap to Supreme Ugliness is right there in your little biblical book of horrors, outlined in black and white, for any and all to read and follow.

Wake up, sheople.

Mamas, Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Christians

Or Muslims, or Jewish, or Hindu. Unless, of course, you want your babies to grow up and die at 18. Think about it, moms. It’s Jehovah, Yahweh, Allah and Vishnu who are behind all the wars on the planet. They’re even known as “warrior gods”! They’re smart, though. They have their little ways. They’ve managed to convince the mothers of the world that they’re not who they really are.

But don’t you be fooled! If you let them, these guys will snap up your babies in a heartbeat and stuff ‘em into uniform. But don’t you let them. Here’s how: From the start, whisper in your baby’s ear that the warrior gods Yahweh, Jehovah, Allah, and Vishnu are evil. Begin early. Whisper often. Everyday, in fact. A better deity for your baby is the Mother Goddess, who teaches us all to behave in the ways healthy Mothers do toward their babies. Teach your babies to love everyone in the world the way you love them, and maybe then they won’t have to die in a war.

When it comes to King Arthur, almost all we know comes from old Christian writers -- who hid the real Arthur under layers of Christian flim-flam.

Could Arthur actually have been an ancient god? According to Barbara Walker, yes. Originally, says Walker, Arthur was an old Pagan god, and both his mother and Guinivere were aspects of the Triple Goddess. “When Arthur died, the same Triple Goddess that gave him birth took him back into the sea. ‘Three fairy queens’ carried him away to the western isles of paradise…”.

Go HERE for a look at a book that uses ancient Celtic texts to show how the Goddess is omni-pres-ent in the Arthurian legends: Goddess of the Land: The Divine Feminine in the Mabinogion, by Caitlin Matthews
The pics are from Howard Pyle's The Story of King Arthur and His Knights, 1913.

Superior WOMEN

Recently, Chuck P. sent me the following:

"I believe that soon the world will prevail on enlightened women to take over the ruling roles before men of violence bring about total annihilation with their barbaric policies.

"More and more, countries run by madmen like Yong Il in North Korea and Khomeini in Iran add to the threat of all out nuclear war.

"The historical patriarchal system is obsolete and unable to avert disaster, and matriarchy is the only hope for humanity.

"We need enlightened superior women to return sanity to government before it is too late."

What do you think?

Slippery Slope?

Apparently, our ski resorts here in Maine aren't the only places with slippery slopes. Here's one in the making, and it slopes toward religious totalitarianism:

"Some members of Congress and the Bush administration are campaigning to allow taxpayer funds to be used for religious discrimination. The so-called 'faith-based initiatives,' otherwise known as 'charitable choice,' seek to grant religious social service providers – who have long provided admirable and essential services to America's communities – the right to discriminate, proselytize and play by different rules than other charities while spending tax dollars. If these efforts are successful, social workers, psychologists, counselors, teachers, and others seeking to work in tax-funded social service programs could be denied jobs solely because of their faith."

For more, go visit the Coalition Against Religious Discrimination.

Fashion FAUX-PAS

Arrested for wearing a shirt? Yep. Better get to fashion school fast: it's a crime now to wear the wrong attire. Last night Cindy Sheehan, mother of a fallen Iraq soldier, wore an anti-war Tee to Bushlet's State of the Union shindig, and was REMOVED IN HANDCUFFS.

Read all about it in the Boston Globe or the New York Times.
