This event is on the private property owned by the Maetreum of Cybele,
Magna Mater which is the worldwide home of the Cybeline Revival and the
Convent home of the Priestesses of Cybele. It is considered
sacred ground dedicated to the Great Mother Goddess.. This is not
a secular event but a religious one with religious ceremonies at the
beginning and end and as such this event is protected under New York
Hate Crimes Act - Ch. 107, 2000 - NY DCJS and numerous Federal laws as
well. The Maetreum of Cybele
considers proselytizing to be a form of spiritual rape and the single
most disrespectful act towards another's beliefs possible.
The Maetreum of Cybele has a policy of zero tolerance for proselytizing
and considers it a hate crime.and will not hesitate to press all
possible criminal and civil charges against anyone attending this event
on our sacred property to proselytize or disrupt this event in any
fashion. If you come to do this, you will not get your
confrontation, just a criminal record and hopefully jail time.
The Palenville Pagan Pride Committee
policy is also one of zero tolerance for any disrespect of any Pagan
tradition by any group or individual, Pagan or Christian or other.
This event is open to all religious traditions but that is not an
invitation to proselytize.or promote any religious tradition that fails
to respect the rights of others to hold their own beliefs. If you think you have the "one true path", you are not welcome to bring or express that at our events.
Both the Maetreum of Cybele and the Palenville Pagan Pride Committee
regret that this has to be spelled out but the climate of religious
based hatred that has taken over the United States at this time forces
us to make our positions, which we believe should be self evident in a
country that proclaims freedom of religious expression the law of the
land, clear for legal reasons.
