Jesus busts demon a**..:)

Jesus said:- "I cast out devils by the finger of God" (Luke 11:19/20)
"When evening came, many who were demon-posessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick." (Matt 8:16)
Demons in a man said- "Let us alone; what have we to do with you, Jesus of Nazareth? have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God" (Mark 1:24)
"Believe in God,the demons also believe and tremble" (James 2:19)

Man, it's simple: if an evil entity would repeat 3 times "I am Thor" Thor would come and crash the bugger in no time! Have you ever practiced astral projection or lucid dreaming?

And you Christians, again! Pray for protection and you'll have no reason to be so afraid of Satan (Set?). I wonder why you guys find it so difficult to believe that you deserve protection. Protection and guidance are the easiest things to get from any deity in exchange of your devotion.

BTW, about Hamlet; no evil entity can hide it's true appearance in front of a pentagram. Another reason to wear one. So if Hamlet would have worn a pentagram, he would have known if it was his dad or one of David Icke's reptilians :) .

I'm sure an entity could hide its appearance in front of any symbol, but in my experience what would really prove a matter is if one were to say something like "In the name of [name of holy power here], are you [name of entity you wish to see]?"

The power of the higher self feeds the pentagram. So no hostile being can do any damage to you while wearing it. That's why I still wear it now, despite I left Wicca years ago.

I do enjoy Pentagrams. Prefer mine with one point down, though. ;)

Are you a polytheist? Why are you here?

I'm here to have fun!
And if by "polytheist" you mean do I like other gods, nah, they're FUNNY..:)
"Like a scarecrow in a melon patch, their idols cannot speak; they must be carried because they cannot walk. Do not fear them; they can do no harm nor can they do any good." (Jeremiah 10:5)

Aren't we supposed to like things that make us laugh? :p

I'm a polytheist, and definitely DON'T like plenty of the Gods.

...and by the way, we don't worship statues. But it's also quite naive to say that a man-made statue won't have any effect on people, for good or ill. The God in that picture of yours is not, in fact, the scarecrow. ;)

Problem is, they don't have an agent like Jesus to rase their profile, so we can't be sure they even exist.
Take Paganism for example, it's got no front man which is a pity or it'd really take off. For example I hear pagan maidens tie ribbons to maypoles and prance round them naked by moonlight.
If I brought a maypole they could tie ribbons to it and prance round it naked any time they liked.
I've had a soft spot for pagans ever since they toasted Edward Woodward in a wicker man for his bad acting, and did the same to Nic Cage in the remake for squashing a wasp on the pub bar..:)

Ha!

Pretty sure I've heard Thunder before. I've also felt Wood, or close to it, on a few occasions. (No, not wood as in a tree trunk... or the tree trunk metaphorical-euphemism for a penis.)

Perhaps you're not aware, but that doesn't really bother us. We don't treat religion like a business.

For myself, if Asatru "took off", I'd be far more concerned than happy about it. Too many white supremacists and anti-Christians. (The most frustrating thing about finding decent Viking metal: the vast bulk of it is just anti-Christian stuff.)

For example I hear pagan maidens tie ribbons to maypoles and prance round them naked by moonlight.
Uh... that's the first I've ever heard of that. Maypole dancing is actually quite a common practice in Northern European countries to this day(and very much fully clothed; you know how cold it gets up there?); it was in the US for a while, until it somehow got associated with Socialism in the 20s, and then Communism in the 60s. (No, I don't know how). I think that's a shame.

And not just young girls and women. Boys and men, too. It's a communal thing.

Wouldn't know; I've never seen those movies, and have no interest in them. (And from what I've seen of the remake, it looks absolutely terrible.) Human sacrifice should remain in the past where it belongs. Modern day Wicker Man rituals, I assure you, do not have any human or animal inside them, and are generally used to mark some transition.

And since I live in California, I will be performing absolutely NO Wicker Man rituals any time soon. The fire hazard is simply too great in this drought.

Same, I view it as a symbol of power and a freed man.

If a man is really powerful and free then he's protected, thus the pentagram is a protection symbol :)

Shuttlecraft, to avoid staying as a troll, please get a basic Pagan or Wiccan education. Catholic statues could also be considered as "idols", however if a church statue would fall and break into pieces nobody would shout "Jesus is dead!" because the statue is, let's say, just a communication tool. The real tool is the mind of course, but the statue helps to see your god, when people is not commonly clairvoyant and thus can't have another way to meet the deities face to face.

I find your way of treating pagans very disrespectful, but I'm not surprised anymore to find a fundie Christian disrespecting pagans. If only you knew you are really worshipping Horus, son of Isis... The Church just took the old Egyptian myths to create a new story. If you don't believe me, just ask Jesus who he really is. Repeatedly (because your mind is closed). The Zeitgeist guys are right on that one. You'll be appalled at how much everyone has been lied to these last ~2000 years. Here, here is the inspiration for your Jesus, king Clovis!

Actually I think that our community is doing fine. Our numbers jumped from 200,000 in the 1990s to about 1.2 million in 2008. We don't need to attract perverts with women dancing in spring fertility festivals to attract attention.

Actually, there are many front-men and/or front-women--and I stress this because of what seems to be to be your sexist attitude--in paganism...Because paganism, unlike Christianity, is not one religious tradition, but many different traditions, few of which are based in the life or actions of one individual. So in paganism you can choose from a smorgasbord of alternatives, male, female, groups, animals...:yes:

For example I hear pagan maidens tie ribbons to maypoles and prance round them naked by moonlight.

While fertility rituals are very common in pagan traditions, the maypole is only one such ritual. And in most Christian traditions, observing or participating in such a ritual would be considered sinful--Shame on You!:D:drool:

Hmmm. I agree that actors should be punished for bad acting, but would burning them at the stake be any better?:confused:

You say that like it's a bad thing. ;)

For me, it is. I don't like anti-Christian stuff.

Hence why my favorite Viking Metal album is not anyone from Scandinavia, but American power metal band Manowar's 2006 album Gods of War. It doesn't even get the lore right, but the correct spirit is there full-force.

Meh. Different strokes, I guess.
