What I believe is correct, what they believe is not. You sound rather like you’ve embraced universialism. I haven’t.
You believe in the power your faith teaches you, and they believe in the power their faith teaches them.
I do not believe the Eucharst endows me with magical powers.
Speaking to them as if your beliefs make perfect sense and theirs are ridiculous and disgusting will get you nowhere. Especially when you do so in matters where the beliefs are essentially parallel.
No, my beliefs have nothing in common with slurping menstural blood because one believe it will give them magical powers. Nor do I believe that this ideology of female superiority is a valid belief system.
Catholics who enjoy the help of Saints intercession to find lost items, sell a home, etc…sometimes mock pagan who believe that there are spirits, sprites, etc who help in certain areas.
I consider those beliefs to be an incorrect and superstitious understanding of the communion of Saints.
For people who believe the Divine is in all natural things, the idea of drinking blood is no more bizarre than you drinking the blood of your savior.
Consuming menstural blood has nothing to do with pagan notions of the divine, it’s rooted in notions of female superiority, and no Christian believes that the Eucharst endows them with magical powers.
Try to understand that they take their faith just as seriously, and it means just as much to them, as yours does to you. Even if you can’t understand how or why.
First, that doesn’t make drinking menstural blood any less gross. Second, for most of them Wicca is just part of the college ultra feminist phase. Third, Wicca is simply not a religion It’s a mish mash of modern liberalism and revisionist views on paganism as symbology. If someone wants to practice an ancient pagan religion, that would be a legit religious view. Redressing ancient gods to suit your political ideology is not a religion. Modern paganism, and Wicca especially, has absolutely no root in actual pagan religions as they were practiced by the ancient pagans. It’s not a serious religion, and it shouldn’t be regarded as one. Regarding silliness like Wicca as a religion is demeaning to actual faith.
