Many of those suffering, or living with, however you come to see it, turn to the Pagan community because of our acceptance of all for who they are. It is true, Pagans are an accepting bunch of folk with little expectations except for bettering yourself and accepting responsibility for your own actions. Even though, most Pagans are this accepting, and the Path of the Goddess is filled with enlightenment, there is also that last statement many tend to forget, "accepting responsibility for your own actions".
