    Peter, the subject under this current heading began with a discussion of
    removing the divine element from priestly magic. I want to make it clear
    that we have abandon talk of gods when we do so. Rather than just arguing
    the semantics of a statement that only has any meaning within the context of
    an argument, perhaps you would like to offer an actual argument about how
    divine magic works, so your statements can be put in some kind of context.

    That assertion is really hard to find. The Sidhe are stated in several
    places to worship no gods, but nowhere I can find says they don`t believe
    in them at all.
