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

Well to start with I am so glad to see so many pagans standing up for themselves here. Because I truly believe that is this guys problem here. I myself grew up in a christian home (and no, I will not capitalize the 'c' in christian). I never seen my parents hug or kiss, let alone think of what they might be doing behind closed doors. Because I almost believe that the only time they had sex was so my mother could become pregnant. Sex was sin. It was porn, dirty, nasty, sins. Nudity was a sin. I have rarely seen my father without a shirt, much less in his underwear.

Sex can be the most beautiful thing in the world, even animalistic sex, when the right purpose is behind it and both (or all) partys agree. Such as love, magick, or fertility. It's only wrong when it's used for control or power, such as rape. Rapists do not get off on the sex itself but the power that they hold over that person they are raping.

I have four children. My oldest is my only girl. She is 14, and she knows alot about sex. Not from porn magazines or tv, but from being raised in a family where sex is not a dirty secret. We do not hide behind our bedroom door to show our love for each other. Of course we don't go around having sex in front on them, but if they run into our bedroom to tell on each other, they know what is going on. I can hear it now...don't you lock your bedroom door? No I don't. No matter what I am doing my children know that they can come to me at ANY time. Why? Because sex is not something to be ashamed of. It is beautiful and natural. Wether it is making love or just plain screwing, it is a need we as humans have. And I will not raise my children to believe it is something that should be kept secret.

Maybe if more people would follow that route, maybe there wouldn't be as much porn addiction, rape, and other sexual disfunctions. It has been proven time and time again that sexual disfunctions start as a child. I spent many years trying to overcome feeling like sex was dirty because that is the way I was made to feel as a child. And I'll be damned if I let my own children grow up that way.

As far as porn goes, porn is what you make of it. I will give you two examples...My husband and I have a few magazines around our home, and a couple of movies. My kids don't even have an interest in them because to them it's just naked bodies. It's normal and natural, not some dirty thing to be hidden away. And just to add this in, the movies and magazines we have are not hardcore. Kinks like that, they can find out about when they are older.

Example 2...Judy and Bob live next door. Bob has a few magazines and movies too. But they keep thier sex life private. Every now and then Bob will grab Judy's butt or breast. Judy gives him a dirty look and tells him to quit before the kids see. Well guess the kids WANT to see. They sneak into the bedroom and get dad's magazines out of where they are hidden, and the problem starts. All because of what they were taught, handed down through generations of christian brainwashing.

The world has seen an uprising of pagans in the last 30 years. More and more are coming home to the ways that the christians stole from us many years ago. Be it Wicca, Witchcraft, Druidism, Celtic, or whatever. Maybe our world would not be in such an inviromental nightmare if more people would hear the cry of the Goddess.

> Recently my wife Diane and I were discussing the problem of pornography.
> We both vividly could remember our first encounter with porn. The issue of
> porn was raised tonight again because of the blatantly unholy depictions
> of incest and anti-Christian imagery in the TNT film, The Mists of Avalon.
> We both feel that this film sends a disgusting and unacceptable message to
> children and adults.

> As a boy about of 8 or 9 years old I had a neighbor friend who had a
> father who subscribed to Playboy. Both of this kid’s parents worked during
> the day and so we had a free run of their home, including his fathers
> magazines. This was in the early sixties and what you saw in Playboy back
> then you can easily see on network TV today. But the impact of those
> images was profound on me as a young boy.

> Diane too remembers her first encounter with pornographic images. It took
> place at a home where she was a babysitter. She too remembers the profound
> impact it had on her young, curious mind.

> Well, over 30 years later folks all over the country are connecting to the
> Internet and watching cable films like The Mists of Avalon. It is well
> documented that the core of most addiction problems start during a

> frightening - wife abuse, child abuse, incest, infectious diseases,
> divorce, etc.

> I read a story written by a minister who became addicted to pornography.
> It started very innocently. He had purchased a new home and while they
> were moving in he discovered a hardcore pornographic magazine left behind
> by the previous owner. Out of curiosity he looked through it. He was never
> the same.

> He ultimately fell headfirst into pornography, then started visiting adult
> establishments, then got involved with prostitutes, all of which led to
> him becoming suicidal. Finally after a total breakdown and loss of his
> ministry, and near loss of his wife, he got into counseling and turned his
> life around. But it all started with one magazine.

> The pastor I mentioned above now is involved in ministry to those who have

> caught up in pornography.

> 1. Repent - admit you have a problem - ask God for forgiveness.
> Change your environment - eliminate the avenues that allow you access to
> pornography
3. Discover God’s love - no matter how bad you have messed
> up God still loves you and wants to see you turn it around.
4. Develop
> Godly relationships - folks that will hold you accountable
5. Begin to
> think long term. Don’t dwell on past failures. Develop a plan for your
> life from now on.
6. Discover servanthood. Most sin is rooted in
> selfishness. Learn to serve others.
7. Expect total deliverance - With
> God all things are possible!
8. Take up the fight. Pour your energies
> into fighting pornography instead of falling to pornography.

> King David wrote in Psalm 40:

> "I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.
> He lifted me out to of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; and set my
> feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand, He put a new song in my
> mouth, and a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put
> their trust in the Lord!"

> Diane and I urge you to resist The Mists of Avalon. We very well could be

> pornographic images. Can we stop all of the garbage accessible to people
> in today’s world - no. But we can help people protect themselves from the
