  • Knight's pick 1-18-2011

    The Graphite shares with us some of his upbringing.
    Originally posted by The Graphite View Post
    I was raised in a conservative, Texas, Southern-Baptist home. Nevertheless, my parents unfortunately mostly assumed we were all Christian and never really evangelized to us. As a result, none of my brothers and I were truly Christians when we left home, although we thought we were. I quickly became immersed in neo-paganism (specifically Wicca), and became quite active in the neo-pagan community, even acting as occasional spokesperson for a pagan organization. By the grace of God, I came to know Jesus Christ just over 12 years ago.

    But, my parents did instill a lot of strong moral principles in me which I held onto (even when I was violating them years later as I descended into a moral abyss). These principles and beliefs included:
    There is a God that is good
    Evolution is a fairy tale and we are not descended from animals
    Patriotism for my nation, the greatest nation on earth
    Generally conservative political principles
    Be self-sufficient and responsible for your own actions
    Judge righteously and not as a hypocrite
    There is only one race: human
    Free will
    Love is a choice you make and an action you take, not a feeling you follow
    Astrology is complete bunk

    Yes, I believe all of this, including that last one, even while I was a practicing witch (although I did practice other forms of divination). And you might be amazed at how many pagans are conservative.
