Practical Polytheism: A Review of Devotio Antinoo

There are few people in the world that I admire more than P. Sufenas Virius Lupus.

I Really Want Some Chick-Fil-A Right Now (Or A Political Pagan Lent)

Not only because it is Sunday, but because I haven’t had Chick-Fil-A in a long time. Over a year. Maybe two. I don’t eat Chick-Fil-A because they throw millions of dollars at organizations trying to prevent my friends from having basic civil rights.

The Jonathan Merritt I Knew: Why He’s Not Quite Anti-Gay & Why I Feel Sorry For Him

I am not a warm and fuzzy person by nature, but my heart is hurting for Jonathan Merritt. I haven’t seen the guy in 20 years but every so often I look him up and see what he’s writing about. He is an excellent writer, even though we parted ways politically and theologically long ago. [Read More…]

I Am A Cis-Woman

I was born with all the biological markers of the female sex. I was not born with all of the classic traits of the female gender. I was born different.

How Gays Are Saving Marriage

I’ve tried to write this post several times, and simply haven’t felt I could rise to the subject matter, because it’s quite personal, not merely for me, but for many of my dear friends. Before I took my blog off in a new direction, I told my roommates I would write this, and they gave [Read More…]

Pagan Soup: Gay Founding Fathers, Ivo Dominguez Jr. and Paganish Movies

The Founder of the US Army was Gay? Cara Schulz brought this fantastic bit of trivia to my attention: Von Steuben was an able field commander and was Chief of Staff to Washington. His efforts during, and after the war, were of such value that Congress gave him a yearly pension of $2500 a year, [Read More…]
