This post has been a long time coming. Mostly born out of frustration with the many individuals who feel a need to slam back against the idea of pagan clergy. And as someone whom is about to be ordained (in just 3 weeks y’all!), I have an opinion on the subject. Naturally.
The first thing I want to mention is the pre-conceived notions of pagan clergy that are brought about our pre-pagan roots and experiences with the Christian Church. Not having that background I can only suspect how it feels to have had a bad experience with any Christian Church. Don’t get me wrong, I have had my fair share of the ickies but not on the level that many of you have had. The glory I found in my pagan path was that it’s NOT like Christianity. And that any pre-conceived notions about anything should be left at the door. Pagan clergy is NOT like the Priest in the pulpit at the local Catholic church. Granted there are similarities but overall they are very different. Let it go. Drop it. Get to know some pagan clergy (more than one individual for the Gods’ sakes!) before you decide how you feel about the idea of pagan clergy.
