A question for the community

edit- I'm taking some advice and have changed all comments to screened status. Should you choose to reply to this entry rather than using my email address, only you and I should be able to see your comments, so we should have confidentiality. I admit to not being very familiar with this feature, however, so your best bet is to write me privately- the address is given below. I have not deleted any comments- just screened them so that only I can see it- so if you've already replied, I still have your comments.^_^ Many thanks to all who have responded, and those who are about to do so!

I have a request to make of the community- it may seem like an odd thing, but it's something which has become important to me right now.

I want to know your impressions and opinions of the House of Netjer, a.k.a. HoN, KO, or the Kemetic Orthodox Faith.

Right now, I'm trying to gather a sense for the general community's response to this expression of Kemetic religion, and that temple's relative position within the wider community. To that end, I want to know what you, specifically, think of them. I want to know if you think well of them, or if you don't, and- as much as you're comfortable in telling me- why. I want to know if you've ever had any experience with them, or what you think of their approach to the religion, their internal structure, their membership, their website, and/or their effect on the rest of the community. I want to know if you have no opinion of them either way, and I want to know if you've never heard of them before. If you've never heard of them before, and this inquiry prompts you to go check them out, I'd like to hear your first impressions.

You don't have to answer all of these questions if you don't have time, or don't want to do so- just tell me whatever you think is most important. And you're free to change your mind later on, of course- I just want to know what you think right now. I will not try to convince you of my own views, either- that's not what I'm after.

I want to hear from people of any, all, and no temple affiliations. I'd like to know whether you consider yourself Kemetic, and if you identify strongly with any particular group(s) within the community. But no matter what, I want to hear from you.

In short, I want to know everything and anything you're willing to tell me about HoN and its relationship with the rest of the community- and just in case anyone has any concerns: I will swear on my life's blood, on the foundations of ma'at, and on the air which the ntjrw give me to breathe that I will never reveal any details of what any particular person has said to me regarding this interview. Nor will I ever reveal any trends of thought which I find within any Kemetic groups or organizations. I assure you that I am taking this quite seriously.

I would be very grateful for your assistance in this matter, and you may send your comments to me privately at my yahoo mailing account. The address will be webenbanu@yahoo.com . If you'd feel better about posting your responses here, then please do so- but it would probably be better to do this privately through email.

Thanks so much for your help, and I hope to hear from you soon! This request will be crossposted in a few places- and feel free to forward it on to anyone you know who might want to add their voice.
