I feel like posting anything unrelated to the Election would get overlooked, so I’m here to simply say, that if you live in the United States, VOTE! I don’t really care who you vote for, as long as you remain true to yourself. Would I like you to vote for Hillary Clinton? You bet, but how you vote is your business, I’ll be happy just as long as you do it. Voting is one of the great legacies of ancient… Read more

Christianity is the dominant religion in the United States and in much of the Western World. Whether or not you want to grow up with Jesus is immaterial, he’s such a part of the landscape that he’s almost impossible to ignore. In the United States Jesus seems to endorse Presidential candidates (Vote Romney for traditional family values!, No wait Jesus loves Obama because he’s more charitable!), and he’s a constant presence in movies, music, and television. All kinds of people… Read more

I usually don’t have to write letters to Halloween, but this year I feel like he’s been missing in action. Where are you buddy? Between Hurricane Sandy and the election we need you more than ever! Read more

Have you ever seen a ghost? I have, and not only have I see a ghost with my own eyes, I felt a ghost! While I’m skeptical about a great many things, after my real life ghost story, the spirits are something I completely believe in. Read more

As a Pagan voter there is no bigger issue to me in this year’s Presidential Election than the appointment of Supreme Court Justices. What would an even more rightward leaning Supreme Court mean, and not just for Pagans, but for anyone practicing a minority faith? The chilling consequences are what makes this the number one issue in this year’s election. Read more

I don’t think the gods, any gods, care at all about politics. I don’t care if that god lives near the star Kolob, once resided in the Holy of Holies, or was worshipped on the Acropolis in the Parthenon of Ancient Athens. I just can’t see gods, divine beings with memories that span millennia, getting all worked up over things that would feel like seconds to them. Read more

Every Samhain I’m confronted with several rituals that call for “honoring the ancestors,” (or sometimes “honoring our ancestors”). While I understand the reasoning behind it, it bothers me from both a theological and a personal perspective. This doesn’t mean I ignore the “death” aspect of Samhain, just the opposite, I’ve always embraced it utterly, but the people I choose to honor and remember that night aren’t spirits I think of us my “ancestors.” On Samhain I like to honor and… Read more

Like many of you, I’m suffering from “election fatigue.” I know that elections are important and I don’t take democracy lightly, but I’m tired of being hit over the head with it on a daily basis. Social media has become a barrage of insults, Willy Wonka pictures, and endless political articles, almost always from websites with a known bias (either left or right), and today I reached my breaking point. I was accused of hate this evening for pointing out… Read more
