    Re: Parenting Debate: To Snip or no?

    You asked for peer reviewed, published, accepted work. I gave it to you. If your only response to it is to poo-pooh it, that seems to be your problem and not mine.

    Even without whatever your...

    Re: Parenting Debate: To Snip or no?

    Re: Parenting Debate: To Snip or no?

    I disagree with you and I disagree with the OP on that. Genital mutilation is genital mutilation. It shouldn't be done to girls, and it shouldn't be done to boys. Because it is inherently wrong to...

    Re: Spells using only crystals?

    With only a crystal as your material device in a magickal working, there are lots of ways that you could make it feel more spell-ish. I do believe that merely programming the stones is enough, but if...

    Re: Parenting Debate: To Snip or no?

    I think it's wrong to mutilate children, unless it's absolutely medically necessary and there is no way to save the foreskin, such as in the case of staggeringly rare deformities and such.

    Re: Abnormally stressed

    I do know what it's like to watch your family suffer from afar, but something that you gotta do for yourself is realize that you aren't responsible for their happiness or lack of it. You can be...

    Re: Past Life Regression

    Honestly, I think most past life regression is bunk. Not that I disbelieve in past lives, I just think that anything that you find with "past life regression" on the label ain't gonna work. The...

    Re: Moon Ceremony-- Feeling strange...

    Well, the first thing that comes to mind is self-fulfilling prophecy. That is, you were told that there was all this negativity that needs to be driven out, so you're lashing out at anything that...

    Re: Really??? WTF

    I'm from Lubbock, so this doesn't really surprise me. Lubbock is one of the most conservative wacko places I've ever been, and I've been a helluva lot of places. Lubbock is the place that elected...
  10. Re: BatSh*t republicans may just hand the win to Obama.

    The GOP has been on a downward spiral since the '04 election. As pathetic as it is, George W. Bush was their last great politician, and truth be told, the rift you see in the Republican Party today...

    Re: Biggest pet peeve about your faith?

    lol hippie tendencies. I'm half hippie on my mom's side :B):

    Re: Sage Burning

    Do what works. I just light the sage bundle and fan it with an oldish crow feather I've had for a while.

    As for shells... In my experience, I didn't use a shell for like ten years. Bought an...

    Southern California has seasons. They just aren't the four seasons of a temperate climate zone, because SoCal isn't in a temperate climate zone. Winter is wet and mild, the rest of the year is dry...

    The question you would ask yourself is, what do you actually believe? Take time to answer that question for yourself. Don't rush it. Don't answer with what you wish you believed, but what you...
