  1. love your site. Am intrigued by so much that i have just read in various posts. I have a question/ request. I am trying to get as much information as I can on first century worship practices of the feminine goddess. (The Great Mother. Cybel, Aphrodite) I am interested in further exploring the idea that these form the backdrop to Pauls arguments in Romans 1 which have been wrongly linked to gay s-x. Some of my delvings into this can be seen here. and the posts around it.

    Have you come across other researchers who might help me in this? Point me in some new directions? I would appreciate any help you can give.

    My email is
