|01:21 pm - Chant|
It appears that someone was offended by the chant I wrote and subsequently posted to ADF-Liturgists. Or maybe revolted.
I get an email from this person. I think the impression is that I wasn't serious. . .
At least I got a heads up enough to work out a good response. . .
Ah. . . Now I can answer the question of whether my religion is serious, or whether it's a joke.
If you read it here, and the discussion occurs on ADF-Liturgists, let me respond first, if you don't mind. Especially if it sounds like I have to defend my actions. . .

Not being serious enough? Somebody needs to remove their head from their ass. Not everything is or should be serious. Sounds like the type of person who would have been offended by the use of Faunus the Roman Goat-God or Odin the Norse Sky-Father in ritual.
I can actually think up serious arguments validating your chant, but a wanker who gets pouty over something as simple as a chant is probably too full of their own importance to listen.
Nothing's actually been posted to Liturgists, but I expect it will be soon. I got the "concerns" in a private message.

Re: Not having read ADF-Liturgists since you posted
Oh silly silly Druids... 'any great work of gravitas"? A liturgy is like a chalice, candle, athema, crystal, wand, circle or anything else... they're props baby!
Anything that is done magicaly is done by Will. The props help with concentration... but The Cat In The Hat will do as well as any Liturgy, as long as you remember that "Everything is true, Everything is false and Everything Is Meaningless".
Do you believe that?

Heheh. I'm game :) There are, after all, several Discordians, several Druids, a few Asatru, and a couple of Wiccans who read it. . .
Maybe I should make an entry for it and just let it go. . .

Re: Everything is True, Everything is False and Everything Is Meaningless
*giggles and bounces*
I do, I do, I do, I do,
In fact I believe that everything is true, false and meaningless.... unless I read it somewhere... then I am not allowed to believe it at all... or am I, considering that I read that somewhewre...
Ah, perhaps I should ask the great Zenarchists...
or have some coffee.

One wonders what better place there is to discuss magic than in someone elses journal... that way if you're wrong... they'll get the blame. (Always CYA (cover your (Golden) Apple).

One of my favorite Liturgies is as follows:
*1st lights the sacrement, partakes and passes"
1st Chant - Old McDonald Had A Farm
All Chant- E I E I O
*2nd partakes and passes*
2nd Chant - And On This Farm He Had A _______
etc etc etc
Chronarchy, I liked your Liturgy... maybe we should have Joe Include it in our Handfasting ;-)
