Secondly, this day “honors” the systematized murder of the Priests and Priestesses of pre-Christian Ireland by the followers of Patrick and Christianity. I would rather honor the people who fought to preserve the knowledge that these people had. There are even stories of the existence of a preparation of mistletoe that would combat cancer.
Christianity, is not my enemy, but I do mourn the loss of the scientific knowledge that was held by the Druids of Ireland — much like the destruction of the Library of Alexandria. How much farther would we be if this knowledge had NOT been destroyed?
