Never trust anyone over 30, eh? That shows what happens when you think you're gonna be young forever!

Seriously, most hippies I have seen and had contact with have no use for most traditional religions like Catholicism. I live nearby Woodstock, NY, which in many ways is like trekking back in time to the 1960's whenever I drive thru or stop and look around it. Many of the hippies there are into Wicca, Druidism, neo paganism and other assorted offshoots, and especially, Buddhism. There's even a Buddhist temple in Woodstock. I feel like bringing holy water by the gallon whenever I happen to find myself there.

Many of the hippies there smoke dope like it's going to disappear tomorrow. Marijuana is to Woodstock what cigars are to Cuba.

We changed our motto to "never trust anyone under 30."   :laughing:

Seriously, any hippie who embraces Catholicism becomes a former hippie in that he would have to give up drugs and free love (although I think they can still embrace pacifism, and a TRUE sense of being a "free spirit"). But most aging hippies are simply pagans, like you said.

You live near Woodstock? Hmm.. Pour some holy water for me.
'Catholic' schools are a hoax these days. If I have to think back to the vile indoctrination I have had to witness there...
I believe homeschooling is the way to go in these times.



I pulled my son & daughter (6th & 7th grade) out of catechism when I found out they were to be shown "Jesus Christ Superstar"......rubbish
