I have a King Incubus, and a Gregori Watcher arriving later today. And I grew up a Southern Baptist.
E. says he he has absolutely no beef with the Church. To put his take on it simply, the Church laid down the foundations for science, and from there, modern life. That includes the internet, without which, the two of us might never have met. (Talk about taking the long view, my goodness!)
And some of the most incredible works of art and charity, have come from those acting in service to the Church. Mother Theresa, Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, even today, there's still a lot of Christian art and charity to be found. You could even throw Trans-Siberian Orchestra in here, just for kicks. The world would be a sadder place without them, right?
Going to stop paraphrasing and just give E. the floor unedited.
And sad and sexy just don't go together, ya know? Despair, anger, all those "negative" emotions...not to be crass, but is that something YOU'D want to sleep with? We like it when you're in a good mood. And the Church has done a lot of, objectively, good work in raising the human condition over the centuries. With missteps, sure; but always with the right goal.
Why would sex spirits, of any shade, oppose what is, right now, one of the deepest foundations of human happiness? Wouldn't opposing that, lead to human misery? And wouldn't that misery make you, as a species, less sexy? We'd be biting the hand that feeds us, if we did that, now wouldn't we?
Also, energetically, there is a HUGE difference, between two companion souls, who are uniting their bodies to express the ultimate form of love; and a random pair of savages just animalistically rutting out of biological instinct. So, yeah, we want to see you grow, spiritually, as a species, and we want you to be happy. And anything that advances that, is just fine by us. If people find their spiritual growth and happiness by way of the Christian Church, that's great. If they find it some other way, well, whatever works.
Another point is, you have to be able to perceive us, first. And you won't do that, if you deny the possibility of the unseen. And right now, the biggest advocate of the unseen, very broadly speaking, is the Church.
So, since the Church has contributed so much to your spiritual evolution; and since it has been such a fundamental part of the development of your modern society; and since both of those developments make you more likely to perceive us, and, frankly, make you more attractive on our end; why would we try to oppose that?
