• In Response to: The Mists of Avalon is pornography! (Ken Moody)

In response to the comments about pornography and Mists of Avalon being viewed as such I would like to say that it is an incorrect response. The Mists of Avalon portrays a society which maintained a particular belief, one of which is that the human body is not shameful, but is sacred. The beliefs expressed within the book, and the movie (although the movie does not fully portray to provide full explanations) is that the body is a vessel to be utilized by a power greater than us. It is not meant to be pornographic or immoral, but to show the humanity we all have. For too many years the human body is thought to be a vessel to hide (particularly in Western society. We need to get past this aspect and realize that the story is historical and as such has a great deal of merit. The religious aspect of the movie portrays a society that held belief in the duality of the higher spirit and a firm belief that the human mind is capable of much more than we believe today. We as humans utilize a very small portion of our capacity - it is available to all of us if we tap it. I believe what I find to be most stressful is the fact that so many people of other faith than Wiccan can so easily find fault. As a Wiccan I have my beliefs and do not force it on others, nor do I condemn others. It is not for any one of us to question the beliefs of others or condemn them; but rather, to accept the differences with respect, bearing in mind that if a person believes in a higher spirit that is what matters. If an individual finds certain aspects of the religion offensive; do not watch the program. I find much more references that could potentially be considered immoral or pornographic in the Bible than I ever have in material that is truly Wiccan.
