Odious? Not odious, but as I have said often enough, merely silly. It
is interesting, however, and can be amusing.

This is really very interesting to me. I have served six years on the
Council of the Land Management Society, and have been active in both
Organic and Biodynamic farming for over fifteen years now.
Here in Australia we have Landcare and numbers of other agencies which
are funded through the National Heritage Trust. It is through this work
with farmers here too that it became quite apparent that they were only
nominally Christian, and had like farmers all across Australia retained beliefs and traditions which are decidedly pagan. I have posted here
before comment that we have had fundies coming out from town erecting
witch effigies at our field days.
For Ray's benefit, not only in Margaret River, since I have worked all
over Australia on these projects.
Maybe we can begin finally to respect one another's points of view here
finally Sharon. That would be a great relief to me, that's a fact.
