Pagan Cultural Diversity ……because I am a Goddess too.

I recently read a post in The Wild Hunt about the AFA (Asatru Folk Assembly) members that were “outed” by a reporter at the National Policy Institute National Conference. While there is plenty of information currently on the internet giving details about this particular incident, I don't think there is anyone speaking directly about how these types of occurrences translate to those of us minorities reading the comments of others inside of our community.

Death; the Great Divide
