An ex-Pagan's blog

John Gibson apparently defines himself by what he no longer is, Wiccan:
I met with Alan, became interested, and started meeting with his group during their new moon rituals. Most of these rituals were what we called "prosperity" rituals, because they were aimed at getting money to the participants. I participated fully in these rituals. At this point, I'd like to mention a sinister reality: At times, the devil can use the tactic of giving "gifts" as a lure. During one of these rituals, I was in need of a couple of thousand dollars to pay bills. The next day, I was contacted by a gentleman who wanted to purchase two computers that I had for sale.

Now he is Catholic:
During Lent, I made my first confession. I wonder how many priests get to hear the sin of idolatry?

But he is young, and perhaps more changes lie ahead.

Hmm...that makes me think two things:

1. What a moronic reason for joining a religion.

2. People who choose the wrong way to do something and then later blame someone or something else have less backbone than a worm.

I couldn't have said it any better than she did.
