CP asks: “I have an acquaintance who is a member of something known as ‘The Temple of Gaia,’ in Seattle. She has been quite closed-mouthed about this organization; yet, on weekends, she attends services there while her husband attends Christian services.

Do you have a perspective on this?”
AM asks: “How do I help a family member who has been involved with people who claim to be wizards and witches? He also claims that God wants him to be a “two spirit” (in other words homosexual).

I have already written him a letter regarding all this at the prompting of the Holy Spirit and now he does not even want to talk with me.”
