    ok guys..i'm sure some of you think i'm a b**** at this point in time because until now i've mostly used this forum when i really needed to vent or rant for one reason or another. i am, however, taking it seriously now and i thought this would be an interesting discussion if we don't start slinging names and other things. i was just wondering what the general consensus(sp?) on paganism was among the people of this forum and would love to hear your opinions, positive or negative regardless, just so i can have some new input.
    thanks all,

    they love nature, i love them.
    lol. I wouldn't go as far as worshiping nature but to each their own. (that sounded weird. is that how the saying goes?)
    actually i DISLIKE the worshiping of nature... but oh well. can't have it all I guess. :P

    Most of the pagans I've met have been way above average as far as being cool people with good sensibilities. But then I'm a nature-loving lefty sort of guy anyway.

    I studied the folklore and magical systems of Druidry for quite a number of years. I wish that there would have been some kind of concrete magical event which could have impressed me one way or the other but sadly there was nothing but fairytales to study and styles of poetry to learn. The imagery and ideas behind paganism/occultism is thrilling and to a young mind and there is much material to use in song lyrics and such but like any religion, it's all smoke and mirrors.

    yeah some people don't see it that way. im not technically a pagan..i am however in the classification neopagan which is quite different but still related because of the familiar origins. im really glad to find so many openminded people when it comes to this but i welcome comments from everyone. i haven't come completely "out of the broom closet" yet because so many people where i live are prejudiced and i want to test my closest friends and family(the ones that know) before i decide whether or not i will. it's just such a difficult thing in my small christian town. all the misconceptions drive me insane.*sighs* i don't really feel like typing anymore...i'll add more tomorrow.

    I want to remind everybody that every word that is typed here are opinions. So there should be no hurt feelings. These topics have a way of getting ugly. I want to let everyone of you know that as soon as it starts to get heated this topic will be locked.

    lol thanks ozzy but i don't particularly care what horrible things people think or say about my religion because like it or not they won't sway me. i'm open to everybody's opinions. if they do believe that nonsense so popular about us being satan worshippers or whatever i automatically accept them as merely ignorant.
