Clifton has an excerpt from C. S. Lewis that is quite apropos.

Christians think that God Himself has taught us how to speak of Him. …a child who has been taught to pray to a Mother in Heaven would have a religious life radically different from that of a Christian child….

It is fascinating that it is written, in the 1960s, in a theoretical tone.

The “Hail, Mary” (Ave Maria) combines Luke 1:28 and 42 with an ancient Christian prayer; hearing it ripped and rewritten as a prayer to “the goddess” creeped me out.

    Sounds like Wicca to me. Scary stuff!

    Ewww. It looks like they’re going to a lot of effort to play at religion: That’s what comes to mind, anyway.

    It seems ironic that the goddess rosary seems to insult the Theotokos, as if she never existed. If I was running the thing, I’d be emphasizing her big time.

    Not that I’m plannin’ on it any time soon.

    Wow, I think that next time someone confronts me claiming that Orthodox and Roman Catholics worship Mary, I will point them in this direction, and see what they think afterwards.
