All About The Love: Congrats to the Wigglian Way!

I don't listen to enough Pagan podcasts. I'd be a better person if I did.Tonight I ran across Tim Titus' post on the Juggler for the 100th episode of The Wigglian Way. I can't like Tim's post enough, and you should go read it right now: From the very beginning, The Wigglian Way has been “all about the love.”  In a minority faith, it is so easy to use the platform of a popular podcast to rail against the oppressions of the majority faith.  In a community plagued by witch wars, it can be so … [Read more...]

Organized Pagans: Proving Jon Stewart Wrong

Llewellyn has 58k Facebook fans, The Witch's Voice 27k and Witch School has 9,800 fans, yet the campaign to get Jason Pitzl-Waters on The Daily Show to speak about David Barton's attempts to deny our religious rights and the other challenges minority religions face has garnered a far fewer number of fans than you might expect.What makes me sad about this is it proves Jon Stewart right. "Dude, Pagans don't have an agenda. They're Pagans. Organizational skills, eh, not their strong suit." -- Jon … [Read more...]
