With our own priests & priestesses in the Craft. From the silverspiral.org. Co-Presented by PlanetShifter.com Magazine & openmythsource.comhttp://www.planetshifter.com/node/1768
In my Catholic upbringing, at a young and tender age somewhere in my early
teens, I remember observing in the church, "The clergy of this church says
they're here to bring you closer to God. However, all everyone here does is
follow and do, play along with the rituals at hand, and repeat the motions.
I don't see how this is getting anyone closer to God. If these people
actually did get you close to God, they'd be out of a job!" That was part of
my first schism with organized religion that led me eventually to finding
the art, science, and spirituality of witchcraft.
