>>>Hummm, let me ask you a question, please; Do you discriminateagainst Witches and Native Americans...in Gnostic studies? Smile. I
can't understand this strange curiosity, perhaps you feel I am not up
to your higher intellectual standards due to my heritage... Smile Do
you have this same curiosity concerning Judo-Chrtistians, Muslims,
Buddhists... Smile? I feel such an interogation amounts to exacting
a Chatechism... of sorts...<<<
It seems to me *smile* that we are witnessing *smile* a bit of a
martyr complex *smile*. No, we do not look down on Native Americans
here. I am part Dine (Navajo) and live in a border town of the
Reservation. And yes, I DO have this curiousity concerning Judeo-
Christians etc. In fact, a common question ot ALL new members (though
I believe you joined once before) is exactly what has made them
interested in the subject. I found your lineage made this question so
much more interesting considering the contrast between your past and
Gnostic belief. I thought perhaps you had a story that would help us
get to know you and your interest a little. It has nothing to do with
your Native blood, per se, simply meant to ask how your interest came
about. Now, can we we despence with the condescending smiles and
sarcasm about intellects and assumptions of being some kind of
outcast and just converse? You will find that one thing we DON'T like
here, is drama.
>>>In my Post 9245 (New Member) "After reading your "Description". Idecided that there was much to be learned here..." So I have come
here to learn...<<<
Cool, we all learn a lot here.
>>My interests in 'Gnosis' first popped up a few years ago whilereading "Holy Blood Holy Grail" Coming across the Cathars and the
Albirgensian Crusade... the last offical Roman Catholic Crusade, that
lasted some 40 years and devastated the Lanquedoc... wiping out
practically the whole population of the Cathars and their practice
While the Cathars are not technically "Gnostic", they are certainly
closely related in some ways and we do talk about them here
sometimes. Don't worry, we will help keep the focus of the club, and
it is not meant to put you down if we sometimes say "this is off
topic". On the other hand, I am sure you have new thoughts to add on
the subjects that are on topic.
