As I run the Mormon Portal, Star Foster runs the Pagan Portal here at Patheos. Yes, we have a Pagan Portal, as well as Catholic, Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, Evangelical, etc. (Go to the main page and click on Religion Portals to explore a bit.)

Krister Stendahl called it Holy Envy. Not everyone is so secure within their own faith that they are willing the recognize the good elsewhere. Check it out.
