So recently I read a blog post written by a Gardnerian High Priestess out of NC titled “I Worship Satan and You Do, Too.” Did your Witchy senses just knee jerk too? I know mine did when I first saw the title. After all, it is and has been a basic mantra of the Craft that “We don’t believe in Satan.” Then I went and read it and ground up what was said so I could apply some critical analysis flying oinkment under the pointy hat (smirk). Cause critical thinking is an important life and Craft skill, but y’all knew that. Now go read said blog before continuing on if you want relevance.
I have to say the perspective given is not one I am familiar with, just not my accustomed to paradigm and whatnot. The whole only two boxes thing is just alien. The part that I have been mulling over is the obvious ineffectiveness that our rhetoric has not only had but the reason for it. Simply put, it doesn’t work because those with who would argue with us decrying us as Satanists see the substance of the mantra as irrelevant to what they are saying.
