Dearest blog & readers…

J’ai une questionne pour vous.

When you think of a Witch, a Pagan, Wiccan, etc/anyone within an eclectic faith or religion, do you automatically assume that they’re bisexual?

I was told once, by a very gothic young lady, that she was completely under the illusion; in order to a part of these religions, one must have a deep, sexual passion and love for the male & female forms, to the extent that you would be sexually intimate with both.

This upset me. One – there is no doctrine so heinous as that in our faith, nor will there ever be. Two – of course there is a love for both forms, but through worship of deity and understanding alone; not dictation as physical proof.

I would never assume someone’s sexual orientation based on what they believe. That is so devastatingly shallow, petty and downright rude.

I guess my big thing is –

Are you bisexual? (Don’t answer that if you don’t want to).
Do you tend to assume?
Did you ever have the illusion that One must be bisexual to be in this faith?

I’m going to let us all be for now, as I have to take care of for today.

I look forward to any feedback!

 

Blessed Be, with Love and Light!

    This is my own opinion, but I find that there are more LGBT in wicca or paganism for the main fact that as a religion,its more welcoming. We don’t have doctrines against anything except using the religion to cause harm, unlike many other more rigid religions. Wicca welcomes every person that comes to it, there’s no feeling of guilt; we’re not told that we sin every day, or that we’re bad people just for living.We don’t even have Hell, instead we have our summerlands. Why wouldn’t the people who go through such controversy in the rest of their lives not want to belong somewhere? A group of people who are more open-minded about all structure of life will be more welcoming of this than people taught by their congregation leader that these people need to be ‘saved’. The wiccan rede makes this easy in all aspects of life :

    Bide the Wiccan Law ye must, In perfect love, in perfect trust.

    Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do as ye will.

    And ever mind the Rule of Three: What ye send out, comes back to thee.

    Follow this with mind and heart, And merry ye meet, and merry ye part.

    In that respect, yes, we have more of an LGBT community, and that’s not even just in Wicca. I no longer consider myself to be apart of the Wiccan tradition, as my focus, as it has always been, is to life the life of a full blown witch, within the Celtic tradition.
    Whether it’s the Craft (as a Witch), a Pagan, a Wiccan, etc, I find that the Craft as a whole is far more inviting and less berating.

    I appreciate the Rede on my post. It’s always nice to read 🙂
