To any person who takes issue with me or the opinions I have expressed here, I encourage them to weigh the importance of such concerns against the importance of taking collective action as Pagans in face of the climate crisis. [Read more...]

Global Eco-Paganism: Czech Republic

ICM2014-czech-republic1

It is not about us taking care of the Planet which is somehow ours like a garden property outside our house. We are the very Planet. And we need to save ourselves and stop ignoring the facts. The waste, the toxic substances, the pollution, the greenhouse gases: they won’t go away because we pretend they don’t exist. Of all the bad things, ignorance is the worst, I believe. It is ignorance that we need to get rid of. Now. Before it’s too late for us. [Read more...]

Why I am joining the First Unitarian Church

First_Unitarian_Church,_Hobart_Indiana_P7220039

Tomorrow I will become a member of the Unitarian church. This may be shocking to some people who follow my blog, since just over a year ago, I wrote a post here entitled, “The Baby is the Bathwater: Why I haven’t joined the Unitarian church”. In spite of this, tomorrow, on May 31, 2015, I will, without reservation, become a member of First Unitarian Church of Hobart. Here’s why … [Read more...]

EGO-Paganism and the Tyranny of Structurelessness

The-World-Revolves-Around-Me

Ego-Paganism is not focused on connection or relationship, but on individual freedom and self-expression. Ego-centered Pagans may be tangentially concerned with ecology or polytheism or occultism, but in practice, they are concerned only with expression of their unique individuality and defending their freedom to do so against all authoritarian threats, real or imagined.

“Pagans Beating the Pope to the Punch”: 5,000 Pagans take a stand for the Earth

world-protest

Five thousand people have already signed “A Pagan Community Statement on the Environment” from 67 countries so far!  That just in the 5 weeks since the statement was published  at ecopagan.com on the Spring Equinox.  That’s half-way to to the goal of 10,000 signatures by Summer Solstice (or Winter Solstice if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere — and plenty of the signatories are).

“Pagans and the Pope Join their Voices to Save the Planet”

pope

When Catholics talk about “paganism”, it never seems to me that they are really talking about us, but rather some bogeyman of their own imagining. And perhaps my own image of Catholicism is no more accurate than the Catholic image of Paganism — merely another convenient, but inaccurate “othering”. It can be difficult to see this sometimes, immersed as we are in our distinct paths. But when we suddenly find those paths intersecting, as they are at this moment, perhaps we can reconsider whether we — and all other life on Earth — would be better served by emphasizing our similarities, rather than our differences.
