Why this Blog?

In American society today, liberals are assumed to be secular, even anti-religion.  And thanks to certain extreme groups, religious people are assumed to be conservative. A new generation of progressive activists has arisen who see their religious and political values as related, who seek to wrest the monopoly on religion away from the Right. But most faith-based social justice groups are mostly Christian and Jewish in nature, understandably so given the nation's demographics. But where does that leave a Pagan Leftist?
Though Pagan community (or communities rather) tends to be overwhelmingly of a liberal bent, I do find that many Pagans are rather politically ignorant and apathetic. There is at times even a backlash against Pagans who link Paganism with environmentalism & feminism. Conservative Pagans have begun to speak out. Well, hooray for them. Fine be a conservative pagan if you want. But Pagan Bush-supporters?  Any follower of an alternative religion who is complacent in the face of eroding civil liberties is point blank, a fool or a traitor- not just to their religious community, but to the United States as a whole.  Wake up, folks- it's time to make a stand.

The Right to Be Intolerant

    So you’re saying that Bush and his supporters are infringing on your right, through the Patriot Act, to be a terrorist?

    “It was renewed on March 2, 2006 with a vote of 89–11 in the Senate and on March 7 280–138 in the House.”

    89-11 in a nearly 50-50 Senate and yet you say the 89 are all conservatives, fools and traitors? The same example could be made in the House.

    Apparently it is *not* just Bushies “eording” your right to be a terrorist.

    As far as phone tapping, are you trying to say Diane Feinstein is a Bushie? She voted to call off a Senate hearing on the issue for now after she was “fully briefed”, that doesn’t tell you anything?

    Fools and traitors indeed. Blessed be.

    Khepri, conservative pagan.
