The Zen Pagan: #Ferguson: Righteous Anger and Wrathful Deities

Fudo_Myoo2

As a power hierarchy becomes more and more unjust, of course more brutal and repressive means will be necessary to preserve it. “No justice, no peace” is not a threat, it’s a moral law of the Universe: injustice can survive only under a rule of force, which generates its own opposition. Or as the Discordian Law of Eristic Escalation says, “Imposition of Order = Escalation of Chaos.” The occasional appearance of this sort of police state is a logical consequence of the fundamentally Neolithic structure of our civilization and our mainstream religion, of a culture that believes that “property” is real but that “mysticism”, the direct and immediate aesthetic religious experience, isn’t.

Wyrd Words: GENOCIDE – Whose Tool is it?

ISIS

There is an entire population of people that are being systematically EXTERMINATED, and these various conservative media outlets have proven that they only care so long as this genocide can be used to further their agendas. These outlets are able to present two apparently contradictory stories to the same audience and use both to support their actual goals, because the average American consumer has simply decided that they no longer care about facts.

Heathen Woman: Hidden Agendas in Heathenry

shield

The heart of a warrior does not lie in inciting conflict, but rather in determining when action is necessary to restore honor and stability. That is the difference between working for a cause in logical way versus responding to one based on pure emotion. We need to beware hidden agendas when our communities are swept up emotionally in a cause. [Read more...]

Birthing Hereditary Witchcraft: Gentle Bigotry & Freedom FROM Religion

cosmosmeme

We all must combat our own unspoken, gentle racism. When you speak, make sure your motive is to bring awareness and growth, not to hurt or shame. When the motivation behind what you say is clear, then you can move forward. The energy of your soul will be aligned with the energy coming from your mouth, and the effects will be magnified beyond your imagination. [Read more...]

Wyrd Words: 3 “Religious Freedom” Laws That Are Literally The EXACT OPPOSITE of Religious Freedom

Vikid featured

The United States has seen a recent rash of “Religious Freedom” bills, with the most noteworthy one being the recent (SB 1062) out of Arizona. Thus, I have set out on a mission to prove that it’s not just THIS state that’s doing some truly ridiculous things. Indeed, legislators all over the country have been up to some fairly embarrassing shenanigans. [Read more...]

Pray Naked For Freedom

Male Naturist, Ross Back Sands, Northumberland, UK - by Surefire, CC license 3.0

Stupid is happening out there. Arizona just passed a law that would legalize the kind of Jim Crow discrimination which was the subject of many a famous protest a few decades ago, “on religious grounds.” The intent is to allow businesses to refuse to serve gay people and not be sued for it, but the scope is far more wide-reaching than that. If those laws pass, I suggest that people gather from far and near on the next full moon at the state capital, cast circle, and take off their clothes. [Read more...]

Wyrd Words: Conservative Pagans

pentacleelephant_zps70570d3c

Two weeks ago, I wrote a comedic story about a rather bizarre indecent that happened to me at work. “Tea Party Paganism” got a lot more attention than I had expected, and I got a LOT of feedback. The real point of the article was supposed to be an amusing story about being outed at work, but not all of our readers saw it that way. The thing I kept hearing was “I’m a conservative Pagan, and my views count too!” [Read more...]
