Some Pagan Humor

I discovered this fantastic website all about the wicca religion...it's called Bewitchingways.com --it gives great info on just about anything one would want to know about the Wicca religion, and I have to confess it's been awhile since I've read any of my Wicca/Pagan books--there are links galore here..click here...click there. But then I came upon one section called Pagan Humor and was cracking up---many of them are take offs of The Charge of The Goddess and I thought I'd share with you this one called Charge of The Credit Card Goddess-- Here's the link to the site itself: http://www.bewitchingways.com/wicca/wicca.htm Charge of the Credit Card Goddess Listen to the words of the Great Mall Mother, who of old was called Bargain Basement Shopper, Flea Market Browser, and The Half-Off Sale Spotter: "Whenever you have need of anything, or simply have an irresistible urge to spend money, once a month, or more often if your credit limit permits, and better it be when your charge card isn't overextended, you shall assemble in a huge place called The Mall, to adore the Spirit of Spending, AKA The Great Mall Mother. You shall be free to charge as much as you want, and as a sign that you be free, you shall have Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Sears, and J.C.Penney cards at your fingertips. Charge pagan CD's, charge herbs, candles, and Tarot cards, charge chocolate, charge anything that shall bring you ecstasy of the spirit and make your life more joyous on earth. For my law is CHARGE EVERYTHING! The charge card is the secret that opens the doors of all the shops in the mall. The Cauldron of Credit is the Holy Grail of unlimited spending and high finance charges. It gives knowledge of eternal debt in exchange for the freedom to buy what you want even when you can't afford it. It brings reunion with all your friends and neighbors who've also come unto the mall to use their plastic. Nor do I demand aught of sacrifice, except that you shall deposit your entire paycheck in the bank to cover your credit card bills, for behold, I am the bringer of all material things, and my account number, expiration date, and credit limit are poured out to all who apply and are found to qualify. Try to read The Charge of the Chocolate Goddess too..that's really hysterical

LOL, pyewacket. This is a funny one. I don't think I should follow what it said here. I refused to fall into their trap "grin." It would be a pure bliss to use our credit card like there's no tomorrow, eh. I think my nerves will shoot up to the sky when I received my billing statement.

I hope you enjoy it. The redneck pagan is really good :) All the others are as well but that really stuck out.

Oh now that is hilarious! I think that would make an excellent commercial for the credit card companies. LOL

Oh my I am laughing so hard I am disturbing the males trying to watch tv. So I had to stop reading for awhile. I saved the site to favorites so I can look at it later. Thank you for that site, not only is the humor page funny but the other links might be helpful to me as I try to find my way. My boyfriend will probably like it too.

I've been to this site many times. It's in my favorites list. It is a really good site. I really like this site. Though I think they could update a little more often.

That is funny! I'm going to check it out - not because I'm pagan, but I have an online friend who is trying to properly worship the Goddess Bast. If I see anything there for her I'll send it to her.

Hi pyewacket,What a joy it was to discover your site and with my energy-based thinking I know it was not a conincidence...you know that whole like attracts like scenario. Thanks for the referral to the Wiccan site...there is a lot there and I have bookmarked it for future reference and I will check out the Chocolate Goddess site as well. I am delighted that someone referred me to mylot and encouraged me to get involved. It is great fun to directed to to many like-minded others and ask them to become on-line freinds. I am sure you and many others who have chosen to walk this path have periodically experienced the feeling of being a round peg in a square hole. Over the years I have been blessed to discover a tight circle of friends who are living their best lives...on their own terms but it is always a refreshing reminder that there are so many more out there...and that is comforting. I also appreciated your observation that wiccans, pagans and others energy-based thinkers prefer silver rather than gold. Growing up all my relatives loved the 'bling' of gold. I often wondered where I developed my preference for silver and pewter...and now I know. It will take me awhile to read through more of your discussions and respond to them...but I intend to. It is also great to read responses from others in your group and discover other kindred spirits along the path.

I love Bewitching Ways. It's a great site, with a lot of information, and humor to boot. I could spend hours there if I really had the time and didn't get bored so easily lately. I have that site bookmarked and use it whenever I need to look up something..or whenever I just need a good laugh.
