I adore Christians, Muslims and followers of the Jewish faith. We’re all children of the Goddess, born from Her body, and kept alive only by Her body.

Like every single solitary humanoid born on the planet, Christians et al. crave food-water-shelter, love and respect -- and then a challenge or two tossed into the mix to keep things a bit dicey and spicy.

But adoring personages who’re Christians, Muslims and followers of Judaism doesn’t mean I adore the “religion” that’s sucked them in.

As a matter of fact, I despise the desert-war-god religion that’s sucked them in. This so-called religion is strangling the earth and everything on it.

Yahweh/Allah/Jehovah followers have been brainwashed. How are we going to unwash their gorgeous brains?

Quick, quick, quick, now – we need the answer fast!

“…Nobel Prize-winning physicist Steven Weinberg: ‘With or without religion, good people will do good, and evil people will do evil. But for good people to do evil, that takes religion.’”

Of course we all know what religion Prof Weinberg is talking about. It's the one that's systematically scraped most other religions off the planet. Ta da! I give you the religion of YAJ the warrior god!*

*YAJ = YahwehAllahJehovah, traditionally seen as three different gods, but really just trusty, crusty ol’ ‘YAJ’!

He's baaaa-ak.

If you’ve hung out here any length of time, you remember Cousin Harold, the Cute little Conservative Christian.

Today Cousin graced me with a long (and boring) list of all 50 of the US state-constitution preambles. According to this list, every one mentions a male deity*.

At the end of the email, the author crowed: "After reviewing acknowledgments of God from all 50 state constitutions, one is faced with the prospect that maybe the ACLU and the out-of-control federal courts are wrong! -----GOD BLESS AMERICA!"

At the beginning of this List from Hell, Cousin tacked on a little note designed to ruffle my feathers: “I know this kind of stuff ruffles your feathers, Athana, but one needs to stay active.”

To which I replied:

“Not a feather ruffled, Cuz. All your piece shows is that our country has fallen to the wolves (my apologies to all wolves).

"The Founding Fathers -- who were not Christians but Deists -- never, ever proclaimed this country a ward of your itchy little warrior-god, Jumping Jehovah.

Check this out, Cuz:

"’In the 1790s, in the waters off Tripoli, pirates were making sport of American shipping near the Barbary Coast. Toward the end of his second term, Washington sent Joel Barlow … to settle matters, and … Article 11 [of the resulting treaty] says that “as the government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion,” there should be no cause for conflict over differences of “religious opinion” between countries.’

Zip on over to the New York Times, Cuz, and taste the sweet waters in the rest of this article, ‘A Nation of Christians Is Not a Christian Nation.’

“Your Dearest of all Kin,
“Cousin Athana”

P.S. Say hi to Cousin Katy and the kids.
*Although the following three don’t – not really:

Colorado 1876, Preamble. "We, the people of Colorado , with profound reverence for the Supreme Ruler of Universe..."

Hawaii 1959, Preamble. "We , the people of Hawaii, Grateful for Divine Guidance ... Establish this Constitution."

Washington 1889, Preamble . "We the People of the State of Washington, grateful to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe for our liberties, do ordain this Constitution."

A dude who hangs out here thinks history’s a buncha bunk. In his own words: “… everything behind us is just monkey crap in the ruts of time and space.”

Now, this dude must have heard the old saying “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it,” so I’m scratching my head over where his head is.

If he woke up tomorrow with no memory of history, how would he find his socks and shoes? His bank? His way home?

The ancient daddy-war-god Greeks offered us three kinds of love:

Agape – general love
Eros – romantic love
Philia -- friendship

But where’s Mother Love? Why don’t any of us ever raise our eyebrows over the fact that Mother Love is missing from this hoary old list? You know -- Mother Love -- the most powerful, long-lasting love ever witnessed on the face of the earth?

Pretty obvious we’ve been scammed -- and that the scamming goes all the way back to the Greeks.

Ian McEwan on religion (Ian’s author of the prize-winning novel Atonement):

Religion, says Mr. Ian, is “…fairly deeply stitched into human nature. It seems to be part of all cultures, so I don't expect it to vanish. And yet at the same time, if it is built into human nature, why are there so many people who don't believe in it?”

Me! Me, teacher! Call on me! Atheists are people who grew up seeing the muckiness of the war-god religions. And the war-god religions sewed it deeply into their brains that there are no other religions but the war-god religions. And these people were so sickened by these war/sky/daddy-god religions that they threw up their hands in disgust and said, “None of that muck for me!”

Of course on this blog we all know that the icky war/sky/daddy-god “religions” aren’t really religions, but only cleverly-designed social-control machines. They keep us sheople in line so’s Big dudes can have their way with us.

Ian goes on: “It is a bit of a problem, the title ‘Atheist’-- no one really wants to be defined by what they do not believe in. We haven't yet settled on a name….”

I have an idea! Why doncha call yourselves Goddess followers? If we all followed a Great Guiding Mother Goddess the way our ancestors did back in the Neolithic and early Bronze Ages, we wouldn’t be in the sorry mess we’re in today – solidly soaked in war, violence, and snooty snobbism with its zillions of social ladders all loudly shouting out who’s good, better and best (and who’s for the birds).

Last night as I was falling asleep on the couch in front of the TV, a comedian said something that jerked me awake.

He said we should send all our homeless to Iraq to serve as a “distraction” for Al Quaeda and whoever else over there is taking potshots at us.

“And when they die,” said funny-guy, “it won’t count ‘cause the homeless aren’t real people anyway.”

No sense getting mad at the dude. He’s you. He’s me. He’s America, “one nation under the war-god,” where one of our deepest beliefs is that some of us are shining stars, some are scum, and others don’t even count as humanoid.

It’s the war-god social ladders around us everywhere, sorting us out, making us fight each other so’s the Dudes at the top don’t have to.

They’ve trained us to keep each other in chains. And trained seals that we are, they don’t even hafta pay us for it. We do it free!

You could tell: funny-guy was just tickled pink to play his part, to remind us all that we can keep animal-humans (like the homeless) in their cages quite nicely by yanking away their shelter, food and clothing.

And the next level, the poverty stricken still managing somehow to find homes? We keep them in their cages too -- by yanking away their decent jobs and giving them ones paying chicken feed.

The Great Guiding Mother Goddess, now, She holds no truck with all this social-ladder stuff & nonsense.

We’re all Her babies. Like any healthy mother, She can’t help loving us all alike, calling us all equal, all valuable, all lovable, all beautiful, all handsome.

And She demands we all look at each other the same way She does.

For Iowans and New Hampshire-ites especially:

How to Pick a President:

Ask yourself: Who's most likely to see all of us as a healthy Mother sees her child?

Who'd love us all unconditionally, no strings attached?

When it comes to tossing out life's goodies, who sees us all as equal ?

Who’s most fretful about the American people – and all the other children of the Mother around the world – more than s/he's fretful about self?

After answering the questions, who's your pick for Prez?
Thnx to mrwaterslide for the foto of "a massachusetts Mother and her four children, including the newest one."


When the threads of memory are cut much that is good is lost. But there are also benefits….

"When all that remains of the physical past is bones and stones, we begin once again to listen to the Goddess as She speaks directly to us in the whispering wind, in the crackling fire, in the crashing ocean waves, in the tinkling brooks, in the rocks of Her body, in the songs of the birds and calls of the animals, in the voice of our intuition, our inner teacher and direct connection to Goddess. We begin to hear Her speak to us….”

From Priestess of Avalon, Priestess of the Goddess: A Renewed Spiritual Path for the 21st Century: A Journey of Transformation within the Sacred Landscape of Glastonbury and the Isle of Avalon, by Kathy Jones, 2006.

Please, everyone -- have a Goddess-blessed & blissful 2008!
