New Religion

  "You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you" Augustine of Hippo 
"He has also set eternity in the human heart..." (Solomon - Ecclesiates 3:11) 
 "...when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself." (Jesus - John 13:32)
"When a man stops believing in God he doesn’t then believe in nothing, he will believe anything." G.K. Chesterton. 
Vancouver wiccan cop and founder of the Order of Scathach believes in philosphy of personal responsibility
From Here...
Knightly values such as chivalry and the warrior code seemed to Kerr Cuhulain to be as good a place as any to start a new ­“religion.” Cuhulain, who says he is a direct descendant of William the Conqueror, founded the Order of Scathach (pronounced Sky-Ah) in 2007.
The Order of Scathach is named after a female warrior who had an Irish pupil named Cuhulain
Members of the pagan order wear minimalist black robes and paint their faces.
Their symbol is a full moon with a branch of three leaves symbolizing three levels of initiation.

The order’s rules emphasize ­personal responsibility and begin with “I will” as opposed to “Thou shalt not.”
Members of the order see divinity in everything, says Cuhulain.
“The divine is not separate. It permeates you, me and everything. ... I don’t worship, because it implies the divine is out there on a pedestal and I’m bowing down,” he says.
He advises troubled people to make up a “god” to help them... “We tell people to identify a problem you have in life and create a god to fix it. It ­really liberates a lot of people.” (emphasis mine, JK)
I rest my case.

Take Care
