Kemetic Interfaith Network- Checking Back

Gratuitous Shrine Pic

Back in July, I did an initial look at the Kemetic Interfaith Network forum. How’s it been doing? Surprisingly well!

At the moment, there are 154 registered users on it, and 2,728 posts. The Kemetic world is a small one, so if you’re active on some of the other forums, you’ll recognize many of the same people.

I’m thrilled to see a larger number of Kemetic Orthodox members participating. On the other forums, only a handful of them seem to make an appearance and give their perspective on things. KIN isn’t dominated by the House of Netjer- sadly, many members see no reason to talk to anyone “outside.” So KIN seems to be getting the crème de la crème.

One of the most interesting things on KIN is seeing the Rev. Tamara Siuda, the head of Kemetic Orthodoxy, posting as “Tamara.” On a discussion of “Deities and Popularity?” Tamara gave the most detailed description of the Rite of Parent Divination I had ever seen! The usual description being “it uses cowrie shells.”

Nekhtet to KIN, and thanks to Bezenwepy for being the admin, and Banu and Shuri as moderators!

    NKTT! Also, thank you to Bezen, Banu and Shuri…running and moderating a forum are not easy tasks.I think Tamara participating as a regular member is excellent. It helps non-KO people see she is a real and fairly normal human, not a deranged cult leader or a cloistered queen bee.

    It's great on KIN. Not only are the discussions calm and informative, it has shown T. Siuda in a much more positive light. I think a lot of negativity surrounding HoN is because of the actions of a minority of their members. They guard their 'secrets' jealously, start flame wars and end up giving the rest of he faith a bad name

    Agreed! A lot of trouble is started by a tiny number of people. It gives the impression that Kemetics fight about everything, don't listen because they're too busy shouting, and have egos a mile wide. We all lose when that happens.Here's to things continuing to build and move in better directions!

    Another thoughtful, timely post! I am so grateful for the KIN forum, and enjoy my interactions on there. I also appreciate Tamara's willingness and openess to share – aside from being the HoN leader she is a scholar with much knowledge to impart.
