I think you worry far too much about this subject. Nobody mentioned

anything
about the pentagram being specifically for devil worship although it has
been used as a symbol for it as well as paganism. It is a tool and it can

be
used for bad or good. You need to have a sense of humor here though.



That's crap. The pentagram is not a tool...it is a symbol. It's history,
the reason it came into being has nothing to do with "bad". I don't
see you joke about burning crosses to scare off JW.
You didn't specifically link the pentagram with devil worship but
you sure as heck implied it. You listed all kinds of satanistic
excuses the last one being "didn't you see the pentagram". That
links them...particularly for the uninformed..of which I now count you
as a member. For the record, devil worshippers do not use a
pentagram as a symbol. They some times use and inverted pentagram..
with the point at the bottom just like they sometimes use an inverted
cross. This is to promote the "anti" attitude of the symbol.

Nobody mentioned slavery or the whole race issue but you seem to want to
take things out of context and turn it into something about you. Are you
offended by my having a black cat? The whole post was humorous and that was
all it was. It seems to me you want to take something that isn't there and
make a whole issue out of it. You need to learn to relax here and maybe
laugh a little. As for discimination, I have faced it but I also know when
some things were meant as a joke. The original posting that I made was meant
for humor. It seems most here got that but you insist it was nothing more
than a ruthless attempt to pick on Pagans (which were never even picked on
nor brought up until you mentioned them). Nobody was picking on the Pagans
here so you need to learn to lighten up. There is also a not anti-Pagan
campaign here either but you seem to want fight something that isn't there.
Personally, I got nothing against them.

Of course here is something that may shock and upset you. I have a black cat
and I consider all black cats as being a symbol of good luck. BTW, I have
known those who practice both Paganism and Wicca and am well versed on what
the pentagram symbolizes but satanists also seem to use it as a symbol. One
thing I know for sure is that most of those practictioners have a sense of
humor and have laughed at some of the jokes. Why? Because they are human and
are quite confident in themselves and their practice. They also try to
spread postive and not negative. And when faced with negative they try to
turn it into positive. You can try to turn this into a flame war if you want
to but no ill will was meant here. It was humor. Nothing more and nothing
less. What does W.A.R.D. supposed mean anyway?

BTW, for those who have non-black cats I am also a member of your society as
well as I also have a diluted Tabby. If Agua girl or anyone else wants to be
mad about that then there is nothing I can do here. I am simply a cat lover
and servent to two cats.

Yeah, and a lot of African Americans don't have a sense of
humor about that whole slavery thing. You are more a part of
the problem then you seem willing to acknowledge. You
talk about "scaring away" JW by mentioning goats blood
and pentagrams. You don't think that is implying that pentagrams
and sacrificing and devil worship are some how linked.
Maybe my "sense" of humor wouldn't be tested if closed minded
and big mouthed individuals didn't go around spreading the same
kind of crap that you are "joking" about.
Obviously you haven't been the victim of real discrimination...
born of ignorance. If you had..you wouldn't have found it any
funnier than I did. Get informed. You can start with W.A.R.D.

In a way it was. I have tried to point this out to Agua Girl but she seems
to want to insist that I have this strong hatred (which I do not) for
Pagans.

I *think* that those were jokes meant to mock the ignorance Cat Protector
believes the Jehovah's Witnesses exhibit. I don't think that Cat

Protector
really believes those things -- CP just thinks that Jehovah's Witnesses
believe those things, and CP is making fun of the Jehovah's Witnesses. I
don't like the JW for their frightening "rules" concerning sexual abuse

and
the reporting of the same. Scary.

I am not a fan of Jehovah's Witnesses since they make it a point to
come to your house to quote the bible when you clearly did not ask
them to. Here are a some excuses or questions one can use to get rid
of them.

1. It is time for my cat worshipping meeting.

2. I am getting ready to go out to and witness the sacrifice of a
goat so I can't talk right now.

3. This household is ruled by three cats and I must bow to them.

4. I am meeting with my other religious brothers so I don't have
time right now. It is also my turn to bring the goat's blood.

5. Thanks for coming but Jehovah owes me money from a previous
gambling debt. Are you here to pay up?

6. The dark lord says I'll have a hard time in hell if I keep him
waiting.

7. I am hosting my first orgy. Do you have any grapes?

8. Got any virgins in your group?

9. You interrupted my porno viewing and thanks to you JW's I am now
sexually frustrated.

10. Didn't you see the pentagram hanging in my window?

Are you going to be mad at me if I say I have a black cat and I see it as

a
symbol of good luck?


Of course not.

You seem to be hell bent on proving that a simple
symbol such as a pentagram can't be used for either positive or negative.


Anything can be used as a symbol for positive or negative. Promoting the
idea that the pentagram is some how bad and signifies something negative
(as you did since you suggested using it alot with comments about goat
bload and sacrifices to scare off JW) is ignorant and dangerous. The only
time the pentagram is really used as a symbol by "devil worshippers" or for
something bad is when it is inverted. This is done to signify the opposite
of what it stands for. It's the anti symbol. This is a fact. Wrap your
mind
around it. Research it. Check out the differences. You can use any
symbol for anything you want but that doesn't make it stand for that.
Pentagrams...normal point up 5 pointed stars surrounded by a circle mean
only one thing historical..and world wide. That is the symbol of earth,
air,
fire, water and spirit..and the circle of life. That's it. Saying...even
as a joke...
that having such a symbol should some how scare off JW is ignorant and
promotes the idea that the symbol should be feared.

Symbols can be tools as well...


No...a symbol is just a symbol. A tool is something different. Check
the meaning in websters. Unless you happen to have a metal pentagram
that you attached the end of a stick and now use as a shovel. Then I
suppose
it's now a tool.....

You seem to have no sense of humor here. I
think you need to re-read my post because I didn't say that the pentagram
was mainly a satanic symbol.


You promoted it. Maybe you should re-read your post. Better yet,
buy a pentagram and wear it around your neck for a week or two and
watch the reactions. When you lose your job, when your landlord
decides not to renew your lease, when your neighbors egg your house...
then tell me how funny you find your comments. No..none of those things
have happened to me but they are actual cases of religious discriminations
all
because someone was ignorant about what that symbol means...and your "humor"
perpetuates that kind of ignorance. You can get all defensive and blame my
lack of "humor" or you can get educated..your choice. BTW, I have a very
good sense of humor...you just aren't funny.
