Ancestry part 2

Although witches can be stubborn, single minded and never wrong, we still do like to learn. ( at least I do) So after bringing the topic out with my fellow wiccans I received some feedback that really got me thinking. In Ancestry in the Wiccan faith I explored the practice of ancestry worship, based on the […]

Beware of the Florist!

But you do like flowers, right? If you like flowers, you have to be a florist, how could you not be a florist if you like flowers, all florists like flowers! This does sound a bit stupid, right? That is because it is a really silly way of reasoning. You wouldn’t expect someone to make […]

Ancestry in the Wiccan faith

Wicca, as a young religion, doesn’t propose itself as an ancient faith, but as you speak to wiccans, one will notice that the gods and goddesses they choose to work with do  have a historical place. We do have certain rituals in our book of shadows that use secret names, as part of our tradition, but […]

My Lack of Respect

  What seems to bother people is my lack of respect (well, that is what they tell me) and having a long hard think about it, I have to say they are absolutely right about the stinginess in which I hand out this much prized commodity But to be more precise, I am very selective when it comes […]

Cats, wasps and bullshit

It’s something that happens with most people; when you care to vent an opinion, people think they got you sussed out for everything you stand for. It seems that it is trending to become polarized; to be part of one side or the other, lest you should not belong. It seems to be very important […]

Blind justice

When your god is a scumbag

I figured I post something with a nice catchy title, does it have your attention? Chances are that when knowing the author of said blog is a pagan, what follows the title just must be a good old rant against Abrahamic belief systems. Sorry to disappoint you from hereon, this is going to be waaaaay […]

People who are looking to piss off Odin

Just today, a friend at Pagan Federation Ireland, shared a communication of the most unsavoury kind. They were approached by  a  girl claiming to come to Ireland to get married and wanted to know if Pagan Federation Ireland could hook them up with a member of the pagan clergy that married heterosexual couples only and […]

It’s OK, you don’t have to believe

Last week I met Larry. Larry was sitting at the bar next to me and as it happens, sometimes people strike up a conversation. It can start of with the weather, the music that is playing at the bar, or just the latest headline in the papers. I can’t remember which subject started our conversation, […]
