AZU and Pagan child abuse

Most AZU members, like Dodia Fae, BRD, and Rob Taylor, claim PAGANISM as a religion. Paganism does believe in free love, does not believe in lifelong marriage (instead opting for a one year long "handfast"), and other assorted sexual beliefs not mainstream in the eyes of Americans. It is ironic, then, they formed a group called "Pagns Against Child Abuse." That's like saying "Klan Members Against Lynching" or "Al-Qaida Members Against Suicide Bombings."

I just found it ironic in light of Taylor-trash's recent article:


How ironic. AZU goes into a place, makes outlandish accusations, then cries about getting "banned:"

"In any case, it is disappointing, but not surprising, that a popular gathering place for Wiccans would become a place that welcomes child rapists and ended up banning every member of PACA who spoke out against the grooming of children by adults. What is surprising is how openly vicious the Wiccan members of PaganSpace were toward child advocates. Women who criticized men in their 40s, 50s and in one case 60s for sending sexually suggestive cartoons to girls as young as 14 or 15 were told they were acting “Christian” and PACA itself was said to be endangering children.

"The offenders themselves, still quite active on PaganSpace as of this writing, were allowed to threaten and harass PACA members, including women, after they were tipped off to the fact that many had been reported to the proper authorities."

Cry us a river, Taylor.

At any rate, they're part of a religion that rejects the legal, God-given boundaries of sexuality, so what do they expect? But then again, with AZU its a matter of hating people, NOT about protecting children. Hate groups are no more religious than businesses that sell private information. PACA is no more religious than the "White Knights."

Wow, you've really gotten under Little Robbie's skin this time. Have you seen the lengthy rant he's posted about you on his blog? I do quite enjoy reading his posts as he clearly fancies himself as some sort of intellectual but falls so far short it's hilarious.

Rob Taylor's one dumb son of a bitch. To him we're not only "pedophiles" but COMMUNISTS too! ROFL! What an idiot! I guess he opposes free universal health care because they'd put him back on Lithium.

You two groups certainly are experiencing a deal of antagonism towards each other eh?

Well what did AZU expect after declaring war on me? For years, they attacked and harassed people and never once had to deal with someone fighting back. Well since the police won't do anything about it, this is all I can do legally, to expose AZU and to show them up for the liars they are.

Hm, well that's all well and good but I don't think this should be turned into a religious issue. I believe both christianity and the various paganisms (I'm sure they have more specific terms on an individual basis for their beliefs) both have many things to offer of benefit, as well as many black marks in their history I'd rather not see adopted.

In regards to hand fasting, I don't really see the problem with it, either. Really, I don't mind religions so long as people maintain their sanity (there's always some in every group who don't) and really, being against child abuse is not a bad thing. The problem is when people are against non-abusive things which they label as such.

The difficulty is discerning where they legitimately believe this (in which case peaceful discourse is the solution in an attempt to convince and share ideas) or when people are intentionally lying. I assume the former as a practise since it's possible for me to be mistaken about my suspicions of the latter and it's the gentlemanly thing to do.

I'm not as totally in the dark about paganism as your critique might suggest, Ty. Before I discovered this, I never understood why AZU was showing up primarily on Christian blogs and blasting the faith, or that time she called the Pope a victim basher and pedo enabler. Until I discovered this, that is.

I am sad because I think paganism is interesting but Dodi banned me from her forum, so basically when she says stuff like 'all are welcome' it's a lie.
