Wow...I just don't know what to say about this.

One god, twelve gods, is it

One god, twelve gods, is it really that hard to believe?  Seems to me like people are clamoring for some sort of spirituality, no matter how many gods are claimed to be involved.  I've personally met droves of neo-pagans, so this sort of stuff is pretty old hat to me.  I can see how it would come as a shock to some though, I do concede.

The darkness of godlessness lets wisdom shine.

Sometimes I wonder if they

Sometimes I wonder if they just do it to draw attention to the fact that whether it's one god or 12, it's all quite silly.

I have to say good for them.

I have to say good for them. Normally I'm against any organized theism, but in this case it can only weaken a stronger theist organization. So power to them! Laughing out loud
