Q
What do you think of people saying on tumblr that they had sex and spiritual babies with gods? Or saying that gods can be abusive towards you?

I think it’s disrespectful to the gods but don’t bother myself with it because they can believe as they please.


Q
Why do you make orphism sound like christianity? Christianity is evil (not all of it, but most of it)

Well for one I didn’t write that essay and two I don’t think Christianity is evil inherently. Some modern Christians do not live by Christian principles that Jesus had to offer, it’s a matter of corruption.  Also I really don’t think our community ought to be saying such intolerant things when we are searching for tolerance and acceptance.


Here is an essay about Orphism for my interested followers.

I’m not the best at describing things so I hope this helps to answer any question you have, it is beautifully written and far more eloquent than anything I could possibly say.

Q
Why is Dionysos more important to the Orphics? I mean, why him of all the Gods?

Because he is Zues’ heir.


Q
What are the core beliefs of Orphic Hellenism?

Everything is composed of matter, the gods are pure good, all gods deserve worship, and the progression of the soul into a deity. Sorry it took me so long to reply.


You can approach any god at any time for anything provided your not doing it in a ritual format; they will listen.
