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

So damn tasty. If only their profits went to feeding starving children or helping the homeless instead of hate!

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. While I can pay $30 and sign a document that grants me [Read More...]

13 Reasons I’m Glad Bristol Palin Is At Patheos

Photo: Gage Skidmore

You may be aware that Bristol Palin is writing for Patheos. You likely have an opinion regarding it. I’ve gotten a few of your opinions, some rather strongly worded. I’ve had a range of opinions myself on the subject, but once the idea soaked in, I was fine with it. Here’s why: 13. She’s A [Read More...]

Hijacking Paganism in the Media

Imagine people began to refer to all people who wear religious jewelry as Catholic. The wearing of a Star of David could be characterized as the “Catholic Agenda,” and shops selling pentacles provided as proof of Catholicism on the rise. It’s a complete misuse of the word Catholic. It’s confusing. It’s inappropriate. It makes it [Read More...]

Gingrich Equates Gay Marriage to Paganism Like It’s A Bad Thing…

Credit: Gage Skidmore

Newt is awesome. He is so arrogantly oblivious to his own hypocrisy that sometimes I suspect his whole campaign is run by Stephen Colbert. He is a gift to political comedians everywhere, and for once he said something sensible about marriage (amidst his usual sea of hypocritical crazy). The effort to create alternatives to marriage [Read More...]

A New Look at the Pagan Umbrella

umbrella

Who is Pagan exactly? It’s a question we’ve struggled with for decades. Often this questioned is answered by how people identify themselves. But Cara Schulz has taken a different approach. She looked around and tried to find which essential common factors existed in the Pagans she knew. And she came up with an intriguing theory. [Read More...]

Let Them Eat Cake: An Observation on Occupy Wall Street

I feel like utter crud, so this won’t be long or comprehensive. My apologies. Recently I told a blogger it was his job and his responsibility to research the religions he writes about, in other words, it’s his job to do his job. Not his reader’s job, not his critic’s job, HIS job. So a [Read More...]

The Devil Is A Useful Creature

Some days I envy the Christians their Devil. He’s such a useful creature. All the evil deeds mankind does can be left on his doorstep. Everything we don’t like can be blamed upon him. He’s a one-size-fits-all scapegoat and I kinda wish I had one. If I had a Devil I’d blame him for my [Read More...]

Norway, Spiritual Warfare, Apotheosis and Being Smurfy

Lots going on today, so I’m going to weigh in briefly on each item of interest. Labeling Anders Breivik “Christian” Christians are up in arms over the labeling of Norway killer Breivik as a “Christian terrorist” and I admit I find the phenomenon fascinating. Pagans are continually upset when some whack job who has some [Read More...]

Life, Liberty and the Institution of Marriage?

Yesterday I was reading Timothy Dalrymple’s post on the gay marriage debate. Tim’s a good fella but we don’t agree on a whole lot. So it’s not surprising when either of us disagree with something the other wrote. Yet something in his post made me do a double-take: But here’s the thing: no one ever [Read More...]
