* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Also, my friend and I were talking about this today and perhaps this is a bit of a sore subject but we've noted that Neo-Wiccans on youtube, Wiccan Together etc consciously separate themselves from Traditional Wicca because they see it as too rigid and as homophobic. Neo-Wicca seems to have attracted quite a large gay following and I've noted gay Neo-Wiccans griping about traditionalist texts coming over as homophobic. I suppose a lot of this could be misunderstanding since there's such a big focus on the duality and balance of the god and goddess.. I know that The Witches' Bible, which is super coven-orientated and was written by Alexandrian wiccans, definitely states that homosexuality is a no go.

 My HPriestess recieved her 3rd* from Stewart Farrar, has her name mentioned in A Witches Bible, and is actually the longest serving AlexandrianHPriestess in Ireland since Janet took up Progresive Witchcraft and no longer calls herself Wiccan. We currently have a homosexual elder, and many more bisexual members, so I assure there aren't any problems.

Wicca is big on polarity, another thing that I believe defines 'Wicca,' so whether it's passing the chalice around, or sitting around the circle for the feast, it's strictly done in a male-female order, so as long as someone can assume the correct role for the ritual, it's all grand.

Also a fair point, although (and I could be wrong), the Celts only celebrated the four fire festivals (Imbolg, Beltane, Lughnasadh, Samhain), not the solstices and equinoxes.


I didn't know that, but I've always thought of them as different anyway (hence me mentioning "solar events" as well as "British folk holidays" ;)). I also feel more drawn to the solar events anyway, rather than the folk festivals (must be my inner scientists :p).
