My Pagan friends would die laughing.

At what? The whole neo-Pagan movement is almost entirely kitsch of this order.

Mostly at the attempt at co-opting the goddess image (the pendant) into Christianity, and with an idea like 'the femininity of Christ' (lolwut?), at that.

I think they "co-opt" more than just the image.

Quote
Hail Goddess full of grace.

Blessed are you
  and blessed are all the fruits
  of your womb.

For you are the MOTHER of us all.
   Hear us now
  and in all our needs.

O blessed be, O blessed be.  Amen

(adapted from Carol Christ)

From their Goddess Rosary page. They really go all out with the goddess stuff.

Don't know whether to ROFL or ralph.

Seeing that this thread has devolved into a game of Bash the Anglicans and has long since stopped being an actual discussion of Anglo-Orthodoxy, I am locking this thread until I can decide whether and how to split it.

On second thought, I'm just going to keep this thread locked.
