Last night I received a message via Facebook from a person I have known since middle school. We've had some pretty public disagreements in the past, and frankly I saw this coming: she un-friended me because in her words "I can not be friends with someone who is an enemy of God."
My first thought was that I had gotten an upgrade.
"If you could be either God’s worst enemy or nothing, which would you choose?" ― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club
My second thought was: "Enemy of God? I like the sound of that. I wonder what how you say that in Latin because it would make a great magical motto."
Of course its utterly ridiculous and this is just backlash on me for starting to promote my website again and an obvious reference to my Enemies of Humanity section. But you don't have to take my word for it, you can always go and ask Her yourself (God, I mean, not my ex-friend); I'm sure She'll tell you that I am a dutiful and loving son but that I don't call as often as I should (things that I imagine my biological mother would say as well if you asked her). Now, if you want to ask Him, I'm not so sure you'll get an answer. He's a lot harder to talk to, despite what many people of particular religious persuasions will tell you. Of course, most of those people who tell you that they talk to Him on a regular basis are lying to you. But if you did manage to get through to Him and He was in the mood to answer, He'd probably tell you the same thing that She would, He'd just do it a lot louder... its just the way He is.
I am not an enemy of God (though I still may translate that into Latin and use it as a magical motto); I have spoken to many Gods, I venerate many Gods and I have felt the love of both God and Goddess. In a time of need, She cloaked me in Her wings and gave me comfort. In a time of questioning, He revealed Himself to me as is His wont to do: in a flood of light, and it took me quite some time to understand the experience.
Anyway, I am perfectly comfortable in the knowledge that I am not an enemy of God. I might well be considered an enemy of the Catholic Church and other groups, but that's mostly on them.
