Thanksgiving in Kansas

posted by Gus diZerega

Spending Thanksgiving in Lawrence, Kansas, was not a good way to get much writing done for this blog.  Between seeing my family, from brothers and sisters-in-law to their kids and their kids’ kids, plus other wives, cousins and their succeeding […]

A Word to the Wise . . .

posted by Gus diZerega

From someone whose only wisdom in this case was to listen to a friend. About a year ago my friend Michael convinced me to get an external hard drive for back up.  Without that back up, when my hard drive […]

Polytheism and Monism

posted by Gus diZerega

One of the nicest things about Pagans is that in general we do not get into hot arguments about theology.  What unites our smaller communities are common practices, not common beliefs.  We are little worried if others are not Wiccans […]

Back in Business

posted by Gus diZerega

Yesterday a poor crashed hard drive was removed from this computer, and a new super duper one installed in its place.  The good folks at MacAdvantage said I had replaced an economy car with a Hummer.  Most of the rest […]

Open Thread

I found a way in to post – courtesy of the error I made on my last blog post.  I’ll correct it  when I leave Maine.  But again, that post that should have been there is here.  Enjoy   It’s […]

I spent all of yesterday crossing the country from California to Maine.   I’m taking advantage of a free ticket I got from being “bumped” on a flight months ago in order to be at my godson’s birthday party up mid-coast […]

Are the Gods in Us?

posted by Gus diZerega

Some interesting comments about my “Drawing Down the Moon” piece in “12 Things…” have prompted me to offer a longer discussion, based mostly on my personal experience. 

Anti-Choice, Anti-Life

posted by Gus diZerega

The anti-choice folks have struck again, holding over 60% of the country hostage to their irrational beliefs as a price for health care reform.  No health care reform unless abortion is made even more difficult than it already is.  If […]

Twelve Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Pagans

posted by Gus diZerega

Pagans are among the newest and oldest of religions. The earliest Pagans were among the hunting and gathering peoples at the dawn of history, while today’s NeoPagans arose within the modern world and work within cutting edge businesses and sciences. […]

A Possible Solution to many Abortion Issues

posted by Gus diZerega

Many Americans believe abortion is murder.  Bad as I believe their reasoning is, and I believe it’s bad, it’s a fact.  Given that fact, it is difficult to ask them to contribute their tax money for murder – though most […]

We Are An Aristocracy Now

posted by Gus diZerega

The people who destroyed our economy, like CITI and Goldman Sachs, are now getting privileged access to HiNi vaccinations.  Hospitals go without, but not these jokers.  Huffington Post has more on this abomination.  While I think they were wrong, very […]

Civilization and Barbarism

posted by Gus diZerega

On a pretty important issue the United States is on the side of the Vandals, Mongols, and Thugs.  Italy is on the side of civilization and the rule of law.

Energy Shielding

posted by Gus diZerega

Wicca 101 class went very well the day after I returned from the Southwest – despite my having forgotten to make copies of  Tables of Correspondence, which was to be a big part of the intended lesson.  Since we had […]

Are White Men a Political Problem?

posted by Gus diZerega

Matt Ygelsias over at Think Progress has posted an interesting, if confusingly colored, map showing what percentage of white men voted for Obama on a state by state basis.  He titles his headline “White Men Aren’t Very Progressive.”    His following […]

Earth Day and the Sacredness of the Earth
I think Earth Day is a particularly important moment for contemplation and commitment by us Pagans.  Often American Christian critics accuse us of “pantheism,” and in a important respect they are right.  We do find the sacred, most of us, ...
