Well, GUEST, I do admire Starhawk's dedication and courage, and her pagan ways don't scare me at all. I believe it was her group "Reclaiming" that started the annual "Take Back the Night" demonstrations to raise awareness of violence against women. As a woman, I appreciate her efforts. "Take Back the Night" is an annual event even in my small Canadian hometown now.
I guess everyone has to make a living, and Starhawk is a gifted writer. That is when she's not in jail for her activism or preoccupied dodging the 'bombs' thrown at her.
It's not very encouraging to see divisions even in the peace movement. It would be a mistake not to work together on this one.
