Ya know, lots of people get all up in arms when someone disrespects them, their god(s) or their beliefs and yet they do it to others. Why? Why is it ok to ridicule or be disrespectful of other’s gods? Why is it ok to tell someone their god will smite them and the other god too and that they worship demons and falsehood (ignoring the obvious bullshit in saying a demon is helping someone a better person. like really there’s no logic to that). Why is it ok to tell a serious questioner looking for info on worshiping Anpu that they should mummify a live person or find a dead body? What makes it acceptable to a person to post a question, pretending to be Anpu asking “why doesn’t anybody worship me anymore?” and what the fuck makes it reasonable and funny to post things like “because you’re boring/suck/don’t exist” as an answer? Why? What makes it logical to say that worshiping Him is ridiculous, nonsensical and pointless because He is “a death deity” as if nothing else about Him exists outside of that role and therefore He is not someone you should ask for help? Why is He so irrelevant exactly if He’s also a deity of rebirth and fertility? Why is it really so shocking that someone might want to worship Him? Why can’t He be the “right god to ask for guidance”? How can you say with such certainty that most “kids” worship Him because He looks cool? Like really… Now I know why I don’t use google and instead rely on asking questions on The Cauldron.
Anpu, I don’t care what those pricks say, even though it really upsets me that anyone would say such awful things. You’re totally awesome and I love you. But please, I really need your help to get to know you, because apparently I’m not gonna have an easy time doing it through earthly resources, since even scholarly works focus on your duties as a chthonic deity to the exclusion of everything else. You’re relevant to my life, help me out?
