11. What one issue within the pagan community annoys or angers me? Why?

I’ve touched on this previously; One group of Pagans that believe their way is the only way!

Some are almost as bad as fundamentalist Xians! and that’s B A D! 😦

If you didn’t read it or don’t remember, I’ve taken friends or ppl that want to see other groups of Pagans and how they interact to the Indianapolis Pagan Pride Day. When they went to ask questions of a group that they were really interested in, they got yelled at and berated by this particular Group! I have nothing against the Norse Pagans- but this group needs to learn manners! And after I looked around to find someone in charge of the event to no avail, I decided enough was enough! I have Pagan/Wiccan Pride, however, I haven’t been back to the event since that incident!

I have personally worked with covens of various Pagans/Wiccans; Dianic, Alexandrian, Gardnerian, Traditional, Eco Witches and a few eclectic solitaries!  I only had a problem with the Alexandrian and Gardnerian covens who were very strict about skyclad meetings and had a priest that wanted to initiate even a guest to the meeting through sex! UH, NO!  Yes, both groups were highly involved in sex acts with their members and I’m not interested in either tradition if that’s how they act. I visited two other groups to see if it’s all groups, it’s not but, one of each tradition and their strict ritual policies truly had me turning around and walking back out the door!

To practice Skyclad for the uninitiated is to practice in the nude. I don’t mind in my own house, but in a public venue, uh Hell NO! Witchcraft is not titillating behavior or entertainment for the unwashed masses! This is spiritual contact with your Diety!

I’d have to say that what annoys me is the same thing that bothers me about the Xians; being told that my path is wrong, the stereotypes of being naked and engaging in ritual sex! I’m of the if it works for you, awesome! To each their own! I don’t disrespect you and your faith, don’t disrespect Me and Mine!
Just because I don’t like Xian stuff doesn’t mean, I dislike the individuals. Actions speak louder than words! Don’t be a CINO! (Christian in Name Only!)

Before I go off on a rant! I’m going to stop here! Blessed Be!
