Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

A long hard look

If it works for you and challenges you to be a better person, more power to you. It is not my place to question that, it's between you and the Divine.

Threats

If you had faith, you wouldn't need threats.

Next step

The next step depends on the focus of your faith and your choices. It's not enough to be just pagan.

Defined

My faith isn't defined by my politics.

Choice

Faith is a personal choice. So are politics. One does not define the other.

Syncretism happens even if it offends

Faith and religion don't stay in the nice neat boxes and cabinets we make for them. Syncretism happens, even if it offends the True Believer™.

Concede the war

The question is not which religion or belief set is mainstream, authentic, or even legitimate. Define your faith in those terms and you concede the war.

Celebrate

Celebrate your beliefs and cherish your faith. All I ask is the same. Just don't demand that my beliefs and actions are bound by yours. Live and let live.

What you believe isn't important to me. Your freedom to choose what to believe, that is vital. That is what I will defend

Dreams seem small

If our dreams seem small, it's up to us to make them greater. We need to make our own, not reach for the dreams of another. We can make it our Journey, or we can live the Story of another. A simple choice but the price is high. Just your faith and trust.

❝No American judge should have the power to decide matters of faith…❞ 

No American judge should have the power to decide matters of faith, anymore than they have the power to decide the color of your bedsheets. Faith is solely a matter between you and the Divine. In the words of the late Peter McWilliams, Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do.

Must be chosen

Faith cannot be given. Faith cannot be taken. To mean anything at all, faith must be chosen freely.
