Well, I have had none. For which I am thankful. I have 'gone into my
closet' though, if what I think you mean is going about it for myself.

I certainly hold no respect for priests. Never have. Early in my life my
parents (dues paying but non-appearing Methodists) took me to Sunday
School, and told me to give it a try. I cannot remember what exactly
struck me as wrong, but 'wrongness' is what I sensed, and I said so to my
mother, and she said, then you won't go again....

I wonder what the child given to the shaman is offered....
