This weblog is dedicated to the Goddess and to saving the planet -- by gently replacing God the Father with God the Mother by the year 2035. Too simplistic? Nope, I don't think so. Female deities are role models for unconditional love. Violent sky/war gods are dangerous, to men as well as women. People are biologically programmed to need religion of one kind or another. (BTW, "thea"=Goddess, "theo"=god)

HEARD IT THRU THE grapevine
Through the grapevine recently I heard it is super uncool now
for Pagans to say things like “Mother Goddess”, “Holy Goddess” -- or “goddess” at all.
In some Pagan circles apparently, anything female is totally
un-PC.(YAWN.What else is new in our 6000-year-old tussle with the Patriarchy?That same old Stuff still stomping all over
us!When are we going to pitch it for
good onto the garbage heaps?)
Apparently, among some Pagan groups deity is:
1. All male,
2.A combination of male/female, or,
3.An It (i.e., sexless).
Let’s stop, take a deep breath, and drop our Logic Hats onto our heads.
Are Pagans all about Nature?Yes.
Does Nature produce panda cubs out of male pandas,
hermaphroditic pandas, or sexless pandas? Poodle pups out of male poodles,
hermaphroditic poodles, or sexless poodles?No.
Nature is a Woman, babies, a Woman.Understand it.Soak it in.Breathe it in through your pores, never be bamboozled into thinking otherwise.
It’s the female body AND the female body alone, with its magnificent,
mysterious, magical holy powers, that manufactures life.
Nature is Goddess, is Female, is Creation, is Life. _________ P.S. Thnx to Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882) for the pic of Astarte Syriaca.
