Delving into the meaning of Brigid

posted by Gus diZerega

In 2010 I wrote in this blog “Imbolc is one of the less intensely celebrated Sabbats, I think because it has fewer real world connections in our lives.  In most places the coming Spring Equinox, Ostara, is well suited to […]

posted by Gus diZerega

UPDATE  below Science Daily reports on a new theory by Erik D. Andrulis that if true demonstrates the earth is alive.  The peer reviewed journal Life has just published Theory of the Origin, Evolution, and Nature of Life, which argues […]

A Pagan in the Buckle: thoughts on my time at a Pentecostal service

posted by Gus diZerega

I have been slow in writing this post because I have wanted to do my experience justice.  In late November I crossed the country, stopping off in Lawrence Kansas for Thanksgiving with family before returning to California.  Starting from the […]

What’s with all the fuss about SOPA and PIPA?

posted by Gus diZerega

A friend of mine well versed in these matters and appreciative of problems on both sides has recommended this analysis as the best she has come across for understanding the issues at stake and why we should care.

Nihilism in America

posted by Gus diZerega

Paul Krugman has a fascinating column in today’s NYT demonstrating that Mitt Romney’s stump speech is 100% lies.  Not one true statement of substance in it.  Not one. This means that Romney believes in absolutely nothing he is willing to […]

The worship of evil is strong in Kansas

posted by Gus diZerega

Check it out- a servant of Sauron has reached high power in the benighted state I once called home. This loathesome servant of evil not only gets votes he is Speaker of the House.

Christian fascism comes to power in Hungary

posted by Gus diZerega

When I wrote Pagans and Christians I said that religions based on reveled texts that make monopolistic spiritual claims to superiority were like dormant volcanoes. However peaceful and good neighborly they appeared, they harbored deep within a danger of erupting […]

Secret Circles Hidden Prayers

posted by Gus diZerega

Secret Circles Hidden Prayers is a new video about Pagan families which, surprise! are very much like other families, only hesitant to be know for who they are.  I once lost a job over my religion.  It was bad, and […]

Food fraud

posted by Gus diZerega

Those corporate produced foods with blueberries that we buy may not have any blueberries at all.  Here is an expose on how many of the major corporations selling “blueberries” in their food in fact have no blueberries at all, or […]

Monotheism and Monism

posted by Gus diZerega

Over at Patheos I have just posted a column on whether it is possible to coherently think of a monotheistic God as an individual.  Not surprisingly given that I am a polytheist, I argue it is not.

Just in! Ron Paul and Christian Dominionists

posted by Gus diZerega

This is a very disturbing article, and explains the oddness of some of Paul’s “libertarian” positions.  He supports states’ rights to do all manner of nasty stuff, including making drugs illegal.  He only supports freedom from the National government.  If […]

Thoughts on Ron Paul

posted by Gus diZerega

Ron Paul is an interesting presidential candidate, a frustrating mix of the very good with the very bad, arriving in the form of a man who actually seems to believe something and is willing to tell prospective voters things that […]

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, ...

The controversy over Pink Slime - and what it means.

How the "war on religion' backfired into a war on women
