Well where to start. First, this movie and book were absolutely beautiful. The voracious battle between the ideals of christianity and their desire to commit genocide against another people was demonstrated very well. To those of you who obviously thought this movie was porn: I find that most often times people like you will focus on any little thing to gripe about just so you can take the focus from the attrocities your "religion" has committed. Get over yourselves. Mankind has a long history of doing things "In the name of God",and most of those were foul deeds indeed.
To those of you who have tried to explain what pagans are, well let me make it easy for you. The term pagan is one created by Christians to label all those who were not christian. We "pagans" have also been called by other names such as "heathen", "barbarian", "savage", "Witches", and devil worshipers. these are just to name a few. The point is during the time frame this movie was set in, christianity was on the rise and their way of ensuring they rose. War. or perhaps more appropriately, Genocide of a people who did not believe as they did.
As I said before this movie was beautiful. Its music, inspiring. It was a delightful experience in entertainment that, when my chidren are old enough to understand it, I will share with them. A timeless modern classic, to be commended in all its efforts towards enlightening the masses.
In closing I would just like to say May the Goddess forever keep you in her grace, and may you never find yourself in Gods crosshairs. Merry Met and Blessed be you and yours.
