How does Rihanna’s new video relate to Pagan values? What would you do if it was you?
Polytheistic Wiccan initiated into the Ravenwood tradition, she has many opinions. Some of them are actually useful.
The Justice Vs. Vengeance debate…
Interestingly enough at a discussion group I was involved in at my Unitarian Universalist Church one of the questions was “Is vengeance always wrong?”
After a few people around the circle talked, we went to the dictionaries an found the general definition of…
” …infliction of injury, harm, humiliation, or the like, on a person by another who has been harmed by that person…”
When the conversation came to me, I felt I had to say YES vengeance is always wrong… because in every story and anecdote about it I have ever heard there is also the element of wanting/desiring/taking satisfaction in/enjoying the vengeance… I believe that in taking that enjoyment in harming another you are dishonoring yourself.
