No, I didn't mean "aside from",
I mean, "because of"; in reference
to pecking at Jesus' eyes & "Mary
inviolate be torn upon wheels".
I assume this relates to the
"Virgin Mary", and hardly Christian
in ethnos and semiotics, at least
that I'm aware of. Christians love
Also, I've never seen suggested in
Christian doctrine to take "strange
drugs", or "be drunk", or "lust", and
no where is a "Queen" of Heaven
Theoretically speaking, Aleister Crowley
could have been the Beast of Revelations,
but I doubt very much the Pope would
What obvious connections do you see?

ah... you know, stupid & stuff?... well I'm sorry...
I see I might not have understood your meaning.
Would you please tell me what makes you think
Crowley wished he was gifted in "Therion Thelema"?
How do you know he wasn't? ... and how do you
know he wished he was gifted? I don't understand
why you see it as gifted - seems to me it's learned.
Love is the Law, Love under Will.
