I hate it when idiotic attitudes by certain people throw a bad light on a good thing.
Most recently, it has been revealed that a certain organization dedicated to the teachings of Qabalah will not allow homosexuals to gain higher levels of adeptness in the Mysteries. Thus, Qabalah as a whole is being linked to homophobic behavior.
Which is simply ridiculous.
Qabalah is a map of the way the Universe works. It does not discriminate based on race, gender, or sexual orientation. It is incapable of doing so.
The Holy made us all. That includes gays. Why is this such a hard thing to understand? Seems perfectly simple to me!
It also makes me want to see blood and gore and veins in my teeth* when I hear Qabalah referred to as a "cult."
Anybody can learn about Qabalah. You don't have to join a sect or temple. The teachings are there for the person who would prefer to study on their own, just as they are there for those who prefer to learn and worship in a group.
Qabalah is not even a religion. You can be whatever religion you choose and still gain from the teachings of Qabalah.
Now that we've cleared that up...
It isn't very spiritual of me to want to slap Madonna, is it?
Therefore, I guess I won't!

Great post - thanks for asking me to check it out. I am not certain whether it is Kabbalah or certain teachers within Kabbalah who perpetuate that attitude... my feeling it is the latter, because as you already know, I'm gay and I am studying Kabbalah, and I have not encountered that kind of negative attitude.

In fact, my experience has been quite the contrary... I'll write more about the later.

Missed you too!!

Welcome back to one of my favorite people!
Nowhere in my reading or studies have I found anything to indicate that the mystical doctrines would discriminate against any person. So I think we're on the right track!

Most definitely!
