AT THE BEACH...

The beach was fun!

Andy and I got off work around 10:00ish and headed to his house, grabbed his stuff, headed over to his parents house and grabbed more stuff. We then headed to Wal-Mart and spent $85 on beach shit. Headed over to McFadden beach. We couldn't set up the tent because it needed poles and apparently the poles have been lost or something. So we couldn't sleep so we decided to begin our first Wiccan ritual.

I was afraid to put on here that I was getting into Wicca. I didn't want any of you to think I was evil or some shit. I thought I would explain the Wiccan Religion to those of you who are opposed to it:

(Although the words "Wicca" and "Wiccan" are relatively well defined at this time, such terms as Satanism, Paganism and Witchcraft have many meanings. Confusion over the definitions of religious terms is quite common. Even the term "Christian" is defined differently by various groups. The sentence: "Ann was raised a Roman Catholic but became a Christian later in life" might be quite understandable to an Evangelical Christian, but wholly confusing and probably quite insulting and distressing to a Catholic.

Some people sincerely believe that over 75% of the human race (including Wiccans) are followers of Satanism. Others, including Satanists, Wiccans, religious historians, many theologians, those mainline and liberal Christians and individuals who are knowledgeable about minority religions, etc., consider Wicca and Satanism to be two unrelated groups of religious traditions. They share few points of similarity. In fact, many of their beliefs and practices are diametrically opposed to each other.

There is no right or wrong definition in these cases. Groups simply assign very different meanings to the same English words. The sentence: "Wicca is a type of Satanism" is neither right or wrong. Debate is useless. It is a true statement to one group and false to another.)

It is a very interesting religion. If you would like to know more (and no I am not enticing anyone to join) you can find more information at http://www.religioustolerance.org/witchcra.htm.

Thanks for letting me ramble!
