2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "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.

An unfortunate journey

This story brought tears of anger to my eyes. It's a request of the people directly involved that it is shared with as many as it is possible:

Nobody should ever being parted from their child because their ex has their 'different' religion brought into court.

Unfortunately it happens far to often

Worse yet is when a judge, against BOTH parents wishes, orders the divorcing pair to NOT teach their joint-custody child their religion - they were both Wiccan and the Judge told them to not expose the 9 year old to "non-mainstream religions"

It was eventually overturned, but judges in this country forget the Constitution far too often

So sad. I'm in the broom closet but I shared it on Facebook. This is Why I don't tell my ex about my religion. I'm scared of exactly this. I would fight tooth and nail though. Bet your ass I would.
