*The sharp frost of the early morning covers the land in an iridescent sheen of beauty. In the midst of the landscape a tall and imposing manor house stands out, a man made mountain amongst the glorious peaks of nature.
Outside a horse awaits. Fully saddled and eager for the thrill of the chase, the rush of speed and the absolute freedom. It's hooves paw impatiently at the ground; great billowing clouds of steam form from it's mouth- it's very breath crystallising in the still and frozen air.
A figure emerges from the house, donning gloves. Leather boots creak as they crunch over the frost bitten ground. The rider moving swiftly, swinging up in to the saddle and taking a moment to compose their own excitement. The thrill of the chase is not restricted to beast alone.
Finally ready they turn round in the saddle and shout back towards the house, "JEEVES! BRING ME MY GUN!"
A tall wiry man dressed entirely in black emerges from the household, carrying with him an exquisite piece of mechanical beauty. The ultimate killing machine. The rider takes it from his offering hands, and loads the weapon. The sound is like glaciers grinding together in the still silence of the morning and yet at the same time exquisite and sends a shiver down the trembling spine.
The rider smiles, a slow demonic smile.
The butler does not wait to see the rider depart, already turning back towards the house in haste.
There is so much to prepare for when the Hunt is on.
Already the rider is a rapidly disappearing figure, riding in to the cold morning, with an even colder countenance to make the very depths of winter shiver in apprehension.*
Ahhh. If only I really did have a butler called Jeeves. And a gun for him to bring me...from the vast and cavernous mansion from which I rule the world. For starters that would be the favourite part of my day.
And the world would be a better place.
I'll move to America where it seems to be the general idea that it's your God Given Right to own firearms. And then the preparation for the Purification can begin.
All I need is a good alibi and the ability to say "No officer I don't know anything about those missing people. It's truly tragic though...such a shame..."
And I'm only half kidding.
Oh my, how but a girl may dream. *sigh*
Anyhoo. Enough of my eugenics inspired day dreaming. What I hear
type, what can possibly be the cause of such fevered and whimsical fancy, so as to provoke me in to more flowery speech? Ahh dear reader let me tell you, let me tell you of mine new endeavor. It's not just paganism I'm defending these days.
This came about as a result of what can really only be identified as a flame war. I am no longer allowed to comment on wikis, in what may be considered an "harassing manner". It#s been three years since I was told to "leave them alone" so my invasion privileges may well be back. But regardless of whether or not I can take a fight to anothers wiki, I can still write my own. Freedom of speech and all that malarkey.
The topic that provoked this? False truths about religion. Oho you may call be a hypocrit now, for I know that in telling people they shouldn't write such things I enable you to turn the finger back on to me and say "Aha!" But before you even finish your exhalation of triumph you wont have that finger anymore. Say hello to "Stubby."
My reasoning as to why I can do this and why the majority of other peopel shouldn't is quite simple. Unlike the majority of people I know what I am doing. I put years worth of effort in to my projects. If I am unsure of something, I will not write about it. And I most certainly wont lash out at a religion with no other reason than "it sucks."
I wont mention the name of the wiki, but if you can imagine the generic "We hate God" fest that seems so popular with the disgruntled children of today, you get the general idea. So here we have, at last, my answer to many of their misguided misinformed statements. Enjoy.
"For all those people sick of Christianity!
Theres better ways to live your life!"
My first thought upon entering that wiki was "ooh how lovely, I see they have listed themselves as Satanists or pagans...how very hardcore
Promptly followed by:
-Recite me the black mass bitches.
-Name me all 161 Wiccan Ardanes.
-I am neither but I can tell you both.
-I bet I can even do it better than you.
-Neer neer I'm going to rip you a new one.
Further investigation of the members revealed to my utter astonishment, that the then fourteen year old leader of the pack was a High Priest of Lucifer. Wow thought I, how powerful he must be, to have obtained a rank that requires years, simply years
of training to obtain. Oh what power he must wield to have become one so young. How very cool
My eyesight was then assaulted by yet another image, this time advising anyone who cared to read it, that with:
You are living a lie, God is not real"
Well now I wasn't aware I needed my parents to be of the opinion that I was living a lie and that God wasn't real, but thanks for that, I'll go ask them right now if it's okay for me to read and have this "knowledge."
Oh and..aha...here's the kicker. Satanists...do believe in God.
They don't worship Him, oh no, but they do believe he exists. Because without him there would be no Devil. You know, Satan, the one you claim to worship. The angel Lucifer who decided to challenge God's authority in heaven and got kicked down to the curb so fast he hit like a meteor and created Hell. Yea, the Devil, your Anti-Christ. If Christ wasn't real, then how the heck can he be the Anti-Christ. RiddleAnswer me this.
You know what I think. I think someone didn't do their research.
And I really, really doubt that someone even had the guts to sell their soul to dear old Satan. I think someone thought it sounded "cool" but is really just too scared to tempt fate in case Hell really does turn out to be real, and well, who wants to go there amarite? I bet they even go to church on Sundays, protesting all the way that it's not fair, and telling their friends how the Priest forced them to take Holy Mass, while really, they were sitting there praying so hard to God just on the off chance that He thinks you're serious about worshipping the Devil.
Just to be on the safe side of things.
And then my eye was caught by a priceless little gem next to a member's name on the list.
"I am agnostic- but Satanism sounds neat!
For the record, when it comes to faith in humanity, there is a level bellow rock bottom.
I'd like to point out someone wrote on the member list next to all the bits after it "I am agnostic- but Satanism sounds neat!"
I think my point is made simply by that.
"All Christians are EVIL.
...coming from Satanists? My...divine being...my dear dear children -because that is exactly what you are- I think you have it wrong. Satanism - the kind you are referring to- is "evil", there's a reason for why no one likes you, other than the fact you are ugly, have no life and never will. It's because you are a twerp and don't know what the Hell you are talking about.
No, no they are not. I may not like Christian theology much myself, indeed I will argue with it a lot, but I am never going to turn around and tell someone "You are wrong to believe that, you are evil to believe that."
You little arrogant bastards. How dare you generalise people in such a way. Oh and by the by to the little "pagans" and "wiccans" on that list: what about all the stuff on your houses "ALL GODS ARE ONE GOD!" what about fucking religious tolerance...? The thing you claim to fight for.
So technically, technically, if all Gods are ONE GOD, and you don't believe in God, you do not beleieve in fundamental Wiccan theology. Therefore you are not what you believe yourself to be, therefore you do not exist! HAH!
Christianity is the reason for all religious conflicts.
...Yes...because the Jews werent being repressed by the Romans who had other Gods were they? No no, of course not, religious wars started and ended with Christianity, yup yup. Just like Wicca is the oldest religion in the world.
Everyone else but you is living a lie.
If there is any justice in the world you will either die now or you wont be able to procreate and the stupidity gene will end with you.
None of you hate God, you just want to, because then you have a reason for why your life sucks so much. And you know what, that whole "God can't exist because look at all the bad stuff in the world!"
Bad things happen, its part of life.
What does not kill us makes us stronger,
and that which does leaves us dead so you wont be alive to bitch about it anway.
All that shit you whine about "Oh the world is such a horrible place, there cant possibly be a God."
GET UP OFF YOUR FUCKING ASS, STOP WHINING AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT HELPING IT TO NOT BE SUCH A BAD PLACE!!
You people make me so angry.
"My life sucks"
Yea well you're not the only one, but you know what, instead of wallowing in self misery, pity and quite probably a few other things, do something about it.
Work at fixing your life.
No matter how bleak and meaningless it seems, it is because you have let it be that way.
And before you shoot at me "I have depression blah blah"
Big deal sweethearts so do I. So does just about everyone on the Internet. I've gone through some serious shit in my life, I whine I bitch I moan, but then I get over it. I make myself get on with life because no one else is going to do it for me.
If you really were that depressed and wanted to die, believe me, you'd have ended it long ago.
I don't blame my life on my Gods.
I know that things happen for a reason and I have grown to accept it. I have also accepted that if I want to fix things I need to do something about it. The image on the wiki of the dolly praying with the slogan "Pray all you want, no one is listening" how do you know?
How do you know that the divinity isn't listening to a thousand million million prayers of people begging for strength to carry on, for guidance. How do you know?
How do you know that you haven't been granted the strength to be so much more, but are just too afraid of too blind to see?
I sound like some religious quak, but you don't know.
How can you say God has never answered your prayers, when you don't know it because you refuse to see beyond the bleak world you have created for yourself where you are convinved you are unreachable.
Its not God you hate, its yourself and the world you live in.
But believe me, you can change it.
All the little "pagans" on there, readeth Playgans then decide if that is what you really are.
You are all so very young on that wiki, which is why I have refrained so much from tearing you apart, afterall, I can still hopefully warp and change your minds at such a young age into something which resembles "fit to be a member of society"
