SEARLES AND DEBORAH'S BELIEFS
This list is by no means all inclusive ... it is just a general overview and quick scan of what we, as the leaders of this community, are and are not about. This list is compatible with many, but not all, pagans' beliefs. One of the good things about paganism is that we are not all cookie cutter critters. Different beliefs are fine as long as the people holding them respect the beliefs of the other members of the community. We welcome you to share your Ways with us.
We believe in a Creative Deity.
We believe in the Sanctity of Nature.
We believe in the Equality and Balanced Working between
Men and Women.
We DO NOT -- believe in (let alone worship) a "devil" or "hell." Ours is not a religion based on fear or punishment or a desire for power over others. (contrary to the Religious Reich's propaganda that we've heard and read)
We DO NOT -- "molest children," "torture animals," "drink blood," "eat people," or "worship evil" in any form. (again, contrary to the Religious Reich's propaganda that we've heard and read)
We DO NOT -- proselytize our beliefs, nor do we seek to make converts to our Ways. We believe that no single spiritual path is superior to another, providing it is right for the person following it, AND it is not forced on anyone else.
