    Who here celebrates Burn's night?

    Apparently it's quite pagan.

    Not surprised you'd slip in a little pagan food mate, perhaps you should save your Christmas pudding for Burns night and go the whole Wicca hog. So to speak.

    the article is tosh, unadulterated, Burns did not worship nature as it alleges, he was born into an era of extreme superstition and these superstitions are often reflected in his poems. He was able to utilize nature to make very profound observations in a way that no poet since has been able to emulate in my opinion. The writer has a seriously deluded view of Scotland and need her bum felt to bring her back to reality, we haven't eaten goats head soup since 1678.

    What is with you and this 'bum-feeling' nonsense?

    I'll tell you what it is. It's creepy.

    Its a Glaswegian saying for someone that is delusional, they need their bum felt to bring them back to reality the implication being that the sensation of having ones posterior felt is potent enough to do the trick. In your case it may need several attempts though.

    Well it does look like him being born into a superstitious culture did affect his writing and he does have quite a following in the pagan community. The bible says we are to abstain even the appearance of evil; do you think you defending a poet who was influenced by pagan culture and has a core pagan following is something your leadership would be advocating?

    Robert Burns has been quoted in the very pages of the watchtower magazine therefore i think the brothers would laugh at your assertions of paganism.
