La Virgen as a Goddess

Today's Denver Post dips a toe into the water with this story suggesting the the Virgin of Guadalupe might be a goddess--or at least a pop icon.

"Many of us are working to claim her larger cosmological meaning as earth mother," says scholar China Galland, author of Longing for Darkness: Tara and the Black Madonna.

Robert Anton Wilson made much the same point nearly 30 years ago in an essay in the long-gone Llewellyn magazine Gnostica, but who was he? Just some pulp-fiction writer in a "fringe" publication, not "mainstream media."
