I know exactly what you are talking about. I joined Rovers in Canada.. and
they said that I had to believe in 'something'... not necessarily what the
majority believed in .. but it had to be somethig like a 'higher power' ..
now.. if you consider native beliefs with the idea of the Great Mother..
and all creatures being in communion with eachother.. is the great mother
really a 'higher power' If you can feel one with her? That was my problem.

My boyfriend's dating a witch.. what's your excuse?
Don't mess with the best 'till you've f*cked with the rest.
(NOT to be taken literally... =)
