Open Letter to Paganspace

At some point there is is breakdown in communication that is intentional.  "Paganspace is a meeting place for the Occult community.", so it says on the front page and every one thereafter.  So when folks post away with things like they are "not spiritual" and "non-religious" it certainly raises an eyebrow on a site like this.  Of course, if that came from a newbie or an atheist/agnostic type of individual this might be par for the course.  But when said person openly proclaims their deep and intimate relationship with a goddess, that leaves some cognitive dissonance and questions in the hearer.  When those questions are raised the response is a flurry of attacks for daring to ask and even going so far as to inquire of the values of the questioner. 


I really am quite tired of attempting to explain this which seems completely an objective issue repeatedly. 


I'm looking for some community response here. 


I can not debate lies and misrepresentations, which I believe that this is at this point.  I am done feeding trolls, sycophants and liars.

I think a lot of people are not as secure in their beliefs. Many people here need to grow a pair. Especially about their own opinions. If they cannot handle being criticized or questioned about what they believe then my simple answer is do not post about them or be open about it.


Many said that its no one's business what they believe, which is ridiculous. It becomes everyone's business when you're publically announcing it. I did not think we'd be banned from having any opinion on it, albeit positive, after you announced it.


I am naturally a open person sexually. (I mean that in the way I am not afraid to talk about sex in public or my sexuality.) But I don't bitch when people think of me as a slut or I get negative feedback for it. That's life. Deal with it.

I concur with you and Lilitu on this subject.  People need to get a grip.  If they mention it then they shouldn't freak out or get defensive when asked to elaborate a little bit.  If they don't want any queries, by all means, they should just zippit on the subject entirely.  PS off-topic: hello David, I'm new to PaganSpace, and live over here in Seymour.   Why, we're practically neighbors! lol  Merry Meet, David :)
