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)

24 DEITIES WHO love WOMEN
From Lithuanian-American archaeologist Marija Gimbutas comes
this short list of pre-patriarchal deities -- woman-loving, European goddesses and gods who reigned before the Big
Bad Patriarchy rumbled into town, dropped down our chimneys, and ate us all up.
Artio The Morrigan (Celtic)
Neman The Morrigan (Celtic)
The Morrigan (Celtic)
Baldr – (maybe)(Scandinavia)
Check out Gimbutas’s The
Living Goddesses for more.
Do you know other pre-pat deities?If so, let us know (include – if you please --
the name of your source).
Thnx to Bromart.com for the picture of Holda/Perchta (which I found on Google); this is one of the best depictions I've seen of a Crone Goddess.
