You are like the guy that comes into the bar with a pile of dog crap in his hands and tells everybody, “look what I almost stepped in!”

For that you bumped this thread?

Never mind, I'm glad you bumped it because this is a good thread to become perpetual and unending.

So thanks, despite being totally full of shit. :)

It was an accidental bump where I saw an unread thread that looked vaguely interesting and didn't notice the date.

You're welcome.

The woman I accidentally converted to Wicca posted this the other day:

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Sure, why not? Edited to note this seems to have become one of my story-rants about my life, but if anyone's still interested:

Accidental Wiccan (I'll call her AW), otherwise known as my second declared girlfriend (out of three. #3 became my wife). This was back in the late 90s when I was involved with Wicca myself. I also frequented an online game, and got to speaking to AW. When she found out I was a practicing pagan, she became quite concerned, as she herself was a devoted Christian at the time. She was quite sincerely afraid for my soul. So I took the opportunity to clear up some misconceptions, assured her I had no interest in devil-worship nor indeed any fear of hell, since I didn't believe it existed. I also laid out the basics of Wicca: the "do what you will, harm none" rule, the threefold rule. Even sent her something to review that I pulled down from the web.

Basically AW could still be worried I wasn't going to make the cut, from passing up the Jesus train, but she seemed at least relieved that I wasn't pursuing evil. I figure at that point she didn't worry any more than she might about other non-Christians. AW drifted away from the game for a while, so we didn't have much contact. I'll say about... four years later, like 1999 or something, she became active in the game again and we resumed our frequent chats. It turns out that the discussion we had and the article I sent her changed her whole life. She had sought out more material after reading what I sent her, and ultimately she converted from Christianity to Wicca, taking her entire family (of five kids) with her! It was around then we started an online relationship that became more real once we began traveling to see each other. I even took her to New York City as my +1 from some award I got through work. That was an amazing time.

We had plans for her to transplant herself and her kids to a place near me so that we could go about a relationship in the more usual manner, but plans got derailed when she popped a 2nd DUI in her home city (Memphis), and had to serve a mandatory thirty days. During that time the kids went to her mom's house near Richmond, and by the time it was all cleared up her kids were doing so well with school and friends that she didn't want to move them again. We tried the long distance thing for a while but it really couldn't last with no actual plan to live near or with each other. That was probably my fault--I felt stuck in my house mortgage, but I was anything but upside-down and I suppose I really could have moved out there if I'd been more decisive about it.

A bit of trivia about her, that I never bothered to verify, was that she claimed to have co-written Amy Grant's "That's What Love Is For" with a songwriter-partner while living in Nashville years before we met. Apparently without consulting her, he sold the rights for a pittance that she never saw any of. Maybe it's true, maybe it isn't.
