9. Yeah, I'm not going to give you any heat

But maybe turn you on to another aspect of the evil that WAS done. You mentioned upside down crosses and pentagrams in your reply. Now, I've never been around anyone with upside-down crosses, but pentagrams, yes... galore. And WE were thrown in with all the hoopla. Talk about no way to prove your innocence. Families were torn apart. Parents in jail. People jailed for doing no more than gathering together to worship the Goddess. That was the time when we began the Witches Defense League. But we were thrown in with the Satanists in everyone's minds. It was hard living and still try to practice and live your religion. Our pentacles and other religious jewelry was worn under our shirts, away from any eyes. It was a time of trying to educate your boss as to what your religion was... just in case... so you might have someone on your side. Gods, talk about a terrifying time! Problem is, with the Dominionists in full bloom coming at us thru the *rump administration, their theocracy a hair's breadth from realization, I can see those times coming again. I call them the return of the Burning Times. Any other witches on DU will know what I mean. It doesn't mean literal burning, tho I wouldn't put that past Dominionists; but it does mean going back into the deepest, darkest closet you can find and instituting, once again, The Laws of the old days. Not one of us wants that.

But even still.. in 2021.. you see, we've got someone enlightened who is still thinking pentagrams=Satanism. (sigh) I've been Craft since the 1970's. Will we ever be accepted, even now when our religion is recognized legally and militarily? I weep for this country. Two steps forward and three steps back on every progress we've ever made on any subject, it seems. And now, so close to losing all that and democracy, too. But while I can, I will state proudly and most affirmatively: I am a Witch. I am a Priestess of the Goddess and I'm proud and humbled by it. I am NOT a Satanist, and tho I can think *rump is the Anti-Christ, I don't believe in a devil called Satan or Shaitan.

And I am stuck here; at my age, no other country would want me. And guess what, most witches give away what money or assets they have to those who need it more; money was never our "big thing" anyway... so, yippers, I'm poor; most of us are. gryn
