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.

Political pagans

Political pagans.

It’s one of the things that annoys me most for the last decade or so.

Politics is about controlling other people. We
know that politics mixed with religion brings out the worst in Christians, Jews, and Muslims. American pagans see that all the time.

Sometimes if you pay attention, you can see that politics corrupts pretty much any religion, faith, or path you’d care to name.

Politics is one of my guilty passions because I’m so good at it. I’m far better than any amateur has a right to be. And yes, I enjoy it immensely. I get off on it when it goes my way.

Which is why I am so careful when and where I use politics.

To quote
Doctor Who, “Good men don’t need rules. Today is not the day to find out why I have so many.”

When I created my
political blog, I deliberately made a destinction between political and pagan subjects. What does scrying under a dark moon have to do with who gets elected? What does planting a tree have to do with gay marriage rights? What does casting a circle have to do with what someone can say in a blog?

Politics is about controlling people. That’s why
things like this infuriate me. Suddenly we’re dictating the language that people may use, at what time, and under what circumstance.

Well, fuck it. KYFHO now and forever.

I’m more polite there as you can see by my post. But I’m still angry.
Religion can not be allowed the coercive power of the state and the state can not be allowed the moral justification of faith.

Yeah, I said it. So sue me.
