Way back in my first post, I said there was a battle being waged inside me between religion and atheism, hence the name Kemetic vs. Atheist. I now have a confession to make.
The battle is over. The Kemetic won.
So I feel like the title of this blog really isn’t accurate anymore. But at the moment I don’t have a better idea of what to name it.
What is changing? Absolutely nothing. I still like separation of church and state. I still want to criticize churches when they do something worth criticizing. And I will still occasionally want to talk about my faith.
Why did the Kemetic win? Because I realized that for me to turn my back on Kemeticism at this point, I would have to turn my back on Aset (Isis), who helped me in my hour of need. That would be like turning my back on my husband, or my parents, or my best friend. Could I do it? Of course not. Could I do it in the future? I guess…but I hope not.
So what was the worst night of my life like, that Aset helped me once (actually more than once – She helped me after that too) and thereby won my undying devotion? We may get into that at some point. I may write a blog post in the future about what my OCD was doing to me that night (when I have confidence that there would be a point to that kind of soul-baring). In the meantime, you’ll just have to take my word for it: She deserves everything I can give Her.
But I want you all to continue to feel welcome here, because like I said, in practical terms, nothing is changing for this blog, except perhaps the name, if inspiration hits at some point.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Thoughts? Please leave them below. Thanks!
