GUEST,firehair28 BS: More pagan stuff (118* d) RE: BS: More pagan stuff 01 May 00


T-bird, you are of course welcome to your views; didn't mean to spark off anyone's tinder.

I, too have arguments with "hard-core" pagans/Wiccans whose minds are so made up they don't wish to be distracted by facts. They come in every stripe, from feminist to high muckety-muck ceremonial, and their arguments are usually limited and boring.

But modern paganism and neopaganism is a relatively new phenomenon - it is still being reinvented every decade, and (at least in my experience) most pagans are encouraged to research their beliefs individually, and decide for themselves what tenets to keep and what to throw away. That is a freedom rarely granted by any religion, and though I am disappointed in those individuals who choose badly, I find I can still support their choices as a whole.

My issue is with those folk who say all paganism is false, based on the flaws they perceive in individual pagans. We are still feeling our way, trying to find common ground. That some folk stop trying should not condemn the rest of us.
