Christians constitute a minority of the world's population. The Beatles were correct when they claimed to be more popular than Jesus Christ. The steadily declining number of Christians is paralleled by increasing interest in pagan practices denounced by Christians, including Wicca and Native American. A few years ago the average age of Catholic priest was in the neighborhood of 55 years old, because of the low level of recruits in younger people.
Christianity grew to its largest number of adherents after a Christian army burned the library at Alexandria and brought on the Dark Ages when knowledge that was not ordained by the Church was scarce in Europe. The Christian army has lost its punch with the information explosion that has placed much data in the public arena.
In recent years Hebraic and Christian scholars alike have conceded that the shared literature of their traditions were replications of earlier traditions and belief systems. These admissions have been mandated by the preponderance of evidence offered in the information explosion.
Viva la revolucion! May the dwindling spiral of Christian belief live a long and healthy life.

Christianity tarred all Paganism with the same brush, based on its experiences in the Roman Arena labelling it all Satanic.
So, when you say "different cultures perceive GOD in different ways" unfortunately there is a strong tradition in Christianity that prevents certain Christians from perceiving anything non- Christian as anything other than Satanism. This has allowed Christians to persecute other religions.
In the case of the effigy burning at Bohemian Grove, the practitioners should be aware of the interpretation that orthodox Christians will place on it.
Have you any thoughts on solving this belief problem?

_________________________________________________Being a Native American I understand the value of burning effigy or totems as a better word for this, It is done when several things take place !. some things are burnt when a prayer is done to GOD.<<< and also when something personal has been handled by someone you did not wish to handle this object but this DOES NOT qualify this as a satanic ritual by no means please study native American history on this issue it has been a long disbelief that these things were of the devil but i assure you they are of GOD and not the likewise, different cultures praise GOD in different ways and therefor you might be jumping the gun on this issue.. Thank You Nighthawk
