The Zen Pagan: Religion, Identity, Practice, Doctrine, Is, and Ought

Memorial_Stadium_crop

Crouch suggests that if we applied critical thinking to religion the same way we apply it to consumer choices, supernaturalism would quickly fall. But I think he is mistaken in believing that critical thinking plays much of a role in our consumer choices! If it did, surely all the money and energy put into the black magic of advertising would be a waste. [Read more...]

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.

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...]
