I don’t often do things like this, but a message I received this morning from a blogger I re blogged a sales promotion for, ( to help out and be nice I thought lol ) who literally left me speechless for a good while.
In a world where people are hurting and killing each other with in some cases no rhyme or reason, and a world where some political runners are actually encouraging folks to beat, hurt or even kill others who don’t agree with their ideas, I receive the following message from this person, who I actually looked up to, as well as the creative work she did, until I read the following.
I noticed that you re-posted from my blog. I also noticed that you are into paganism. I am a Christian and would prefer that my posts are not on a blog that also has connections to paganism. Please remove the post. Thank you.
This was my response:
I am sad to say your post has been deleted. I was born and raised Christian, my Mother, a Christian, married my Father, a British Pagan in 1950 and they were happily married for more than 40 years, until my Father passed.
Although raised Christian, I learned to open myself up to include good people of all faiths and religious beliefs.
I am also sad to say you are not the kind of Christian I grew up with, nor associate myself with now, as they are a kinder, gentler, more informed people.
