I presume you're talking about Gospel of Bastet Selections. It's a dark
text. Dark obscure, not dark evil.
> Quietly accepting suffering and doing nothing about it?
No! Where are you getting this idea? If you suffer, it is Bastet,
you her MICE!" Find a way to work around your afflictions and eat them
as you do your prey. If you are afflicted by wounds, it is the talons
Bastet. She strokes you into strength. A Teonaht version of "whatever
doesn't kill makes you stronger."
That sounds like

Hmmm. Are you talking about the original Relay post? It's about
not being a peeping tom. For the sayings of another deity, there
is Grorel, goddess of war and strategy--in wartime. Bastet is about
making it in the peacetime world.

Not for the Teonim. The enemies are the jackels and the wolves.
"The gods have retractible claws."
