May Day! May Day!

In an hour, we at "The Gods Are Bored" will be embarking for the May Day Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm. Please join us there as members of the Mountain Tribe -- or just to say howdy. Even if 20,000 people come every day (I think that's an accurate prediction), I will be easy to find. I'm the crazy one.

The Fairie Festival is usually picketed by Pentecostal Christians who issue dire warnings of hell to everyone who enters the fairie grounds.

To them -- and to you -- I would reply, "Going to a fairie festival doesn't make you a Pagan anymore than going to France makes you French.

"Having said that ... Vive la France!"

Blessings to all on Beltane. Light a fire for the bored gods. Dance for spring, for all the blooming, growing, flowering things that soak up the sunshine and give us oxygen in return! Blessed be the Ancient Ones!

Hi,

My name is Rev Robert Wright, Editor for Christian.com, a social network made specifically for Christians, by Christians.

Christian.com has many great features like Christian TV, prayer requests, finding a church, receiving church updates and advice. We have emailed you to collaborate with you and your blog to help spread the good word of Christianity. I look forward to your response regarding this matter. Thanks!

Thank you Reverand Wright for your interest and apparent lack of any common sense whatsoever. Your "comment" was very entertaining. We Godless Pagans (as I am sure you have branded us) would LOVE to have you as our honored guests at our Beltaine celebrations, unless of course honoring nature and life outside your salvation-oriented focus prevents such a thing, in which case we suggest you retire to the safety of your cathedrals or metal-roofed warehouses and quiver before your God, whom you think condemns those of us who honor "his" most beautiful creation, this Earth we love and honor so much for having hosted us.

And have a nice day.

Is that the same as "going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than going to a garage makes you a mechanic"..? Just curious...

Oh, and a big welcome to Reverend Wright...let me know when everything is arranged, I think things may get interesting. The only question I have is, did he actually READ anything before extending his invitation..? Perhaps, despite my interpretation (NOT interruption, as the new president of the place where I am employed seems to deem the appropriate term in this situation ...long story) of his invitation, he is sincere & truly wishes to extend the invitation along the lines of Christ's teachings of tolerance, acceptance & love for all of his fellow creatures... either way, I will be waiting with bated (from "abate - stop) breath...

Dear Rev. Robert Wright:

If you can drive a car as well as you can find like-minded blogs, I marvel that you are still alive.
