The Goddess is Inclusive

“Women's spirituality is Goddess-centered. That is a revolutionary idea because all the reigning religions are male-God-centered. And the values taught in those religions are jealousy, possessiveness, exclusivity, obedience, guilt, punishment, fear. They are mostly fear-based religions. When you find a male God you find fear. They're sort of synonymous. In turning it around and saying all children come from the Goddess, then we're all equal, there's no reason for fear, there's no punishment, there's no judgment, there's no possessiveness or exclusivity. It's inclusive in that all come from the Goddess, and it's female values, which is the children are all equal.” ~Z. Budapest
