Let the Unitarians keep it. Irreverent. If it's supposed to be entertaining, it's not. Irreligious. I like wolves, whales and loons, but don't want them in the pew with me. I don't think St. Francis would either.

A good book to read about accepting the goddess, new age, and witchcraft is: Ungodly Rage: The Hidden Face of Catholic Feminism
