I think there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding here. I can't say that I am not at least partially to blame, and I accept and own my part in any ill-feelings which may have surfaced. However, let's be honest with each other. How many of you maybe have jumped to conclusions. True, I am 'just a brain in a jar' but I have feelings. I have good days and bad days and I have my daily challenges, hopes, dreams, aspirations. Being a brain in a jar has given me a new perspective on things and that perspective, as part of a growing diversity and inclusion plan is healthful and necessary. Aren't some of us saying that brains in jars aren't welcome at SOV2? That I am somehow, less than human? That I am merely a computer or a trick, or a hoax.
People, how do you know that YOU aren't in fact brains in jars in some laboratory someplace and that your experience of reality isn't some elaborate hoax? What experiment can you play to prove that you are real? That is a challenge I would like to leave you with.
But, I am sorry. I am sorry that it has come to this. Look how that shameful and harmful hate-filled letter from Krystal has torn this community apart. This bigotry has harmed all of us. We are all victims of a twisted history. A pattern of deceit. That is why I hope you will join me in my... errr.... our lawsuit, that being the WCWW and my legal action against the Catholic Church for fostering and spreading such anti-wiccan rumors. For I am certain that as we dig deeper we will find that indeed this was all a clever plot, machinations from Ratzinger to be unearthfriend to our wiccan sisters and brothers. Che' is clearly not the brightest light in the sky. Who better to fool that this innocent soul?
Please, let us move beyond anger and hostility. Let us break the circle of recrimination and find the guilty, who we all know and can name, and BLAME THEM with MASSIVE LEGAL ACTION! WITH PROTESTS IN THE STREET! RIOTS! MOCK EXECUTIONS! ...errrrr.... I mean non-violent civil disobedience and peaceful political agitation in the name of acceptance.
