The following are some of the leading theories that blend perfectly with Wiccan belief.

Authenticity and the modern neopagan

The irony of arguments amongst reconstructionist pagans that come down to whether someone’s authentic or not has been driven home to me lately. I’m not talking about the perfectly valid attempts to get people to stop claiming a tradition they’ve only practiced for ten weeks is the way the ancestors did it when we have . . . → Read More: Authenticity and the modern neopagan

The Pagan Baby Name Dilemma

by Patti Wigington

For starters, Oak and Willow aren’t too bad. I think nature names are borderline… they’re unusual enough that people say, “Wow, what an unusual name!” but not so weird that no one knows what it means or thinks you’re a freak for giving it to your child.

While Rodriquez . . . → Read More: Challenging the Order?

Outsiders are prone to thinking magi foolish for clinging to a belief in four elements when there’s this thing called the “periodic table” that lists well over a hundred. Insiders are prone to trying to make the Classical Elements “fit” modern science by . . . → Read More: The Elements and Spirit as an Emergent Quality

Don’t Do Voodoo This Christmas

By Sinead Fagan

Shopping in Dunnes Stores recently, I was very impressed by the gorgeous range of items they have in stock for the season; cuddly snowmen, oversized stockings, golden wreaths, and, of course, let’s not forget that old festive favourite: voodoo dolls.

Yes, there on the shelf, as part of the novelty gift range . . . → Read More: Don’t Do Voodoo This Christmas

Anti-terror law requires God be acknowledged

Under state law, God is Kentucky’s first line of defense against terrorism.

The 2006 law organizing the state Office of Homeland Security lists its initial duty as “stressing the dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth.”

Specifically, Homeland Security is ordered to publicize God’s benevolent protection in its reports, . . . → Read More: Anti-terror law requires God be acknowledged
