Tolerance Pagan
Tolerance for and among Pagans


Many Pagans remain "in the Closet" for fear of the intolerance of others. We also find that intolerance can be an issue among varying Pagan groups who feel that they are "right". This intolerance must stop!


Many Pagans are forced to hide their religious and spiritual beliefs for fear of the intolerance of others. Many are afraid of others' reactions to themselves and their families. Intolerance oftens finds a home within many Pagan groups, also. Often, we are preconditioned by previous experiences to be intolerant of other's beliefs and to assume that only we have the right answers. No one should ever be afraid to express such pure and meaningful emotions! A person's spirit should be free to grow and evolve without fear. Intolerance must be overcome.

To those who wound,
With words and spite,
May they find,
The path that is right.
To those that judge,
To those that bring us down,
May they find,
Thepath I have found.
To those who accept,
To those with open minds,
I pray, great mother,
They stay just as kind.

In my heart I ask the Mother Goddess and Father God to allow me every day to love all those around me as they have loved me. I ask for the ability to tollerate all of those that would persecute me for my beliefs.(i am in the south) May we all someday be able to love one another the way we were created to.

I pray for the Palastinians suffering such horrible abuse by the Zionest's in the world today.

I pray that Nanna and Innana, as well as Marduk will visit Palastine and protect these warm long suffering peoples, and protect them from the sword, and the wisdom be given for the appropriate actions to bring permenent Peace and Justice to this people..

In the Love of Inanna..

Mother Goddess and Father God,

I pray for tolerance and wisdom among us, so that we may be accepted as part of the World's spirituality. May each and every person that hears about our Pagan path be filled with comprehension and compassion. May our own hearts and minds always respect others' paths too. May every one of us freely enjoy the beauty and mystery of his/her own religion!

Merry meet and merry part,
in the Light of the Goddess and God!
Serene Spirit

Great Lord and Lady,

Please encourage all those around me to accept what everyone believes, please help me in protecting me from those who cannot be encouraged, please let the separation of church and state still hold, and please let all practice what religion they wish and never have any regrets about it!

Merry meet and merry part, blessed be!

Goddess, my Mother,
Help me to see, understand, and respect the paths of others, while growing more powerful and knowledgeable in my own. Help me to find the courage to someday tell my family about my chosen religion, and I pray they will understand.

This is why I do what I do. Gods, goddesses, ancestors, and spirits, may this someday become commonplace, unremarkable, and tolerated among all. So mote it be.

May the Lord and Lady encircle all who are frightened and live in fear of any kind with their warm light and love. Blessed Be.

How you forgive persecution from persons you trusted? How do you forgive hatred spewed from the mouthes of persons who claim to be accepting of all views? How do you forgive persons who use the same accusations of abuse (when you are opposed to abuse) that a fundamentalist would use, in order to silence you? How do you forgive "friends" ignoring your e-mails at a the hardest time in your life and when you need them the most? All of those things have been done by Pagans as well as Fundamentlists to me. And you talk of Tolerance?
May The Gods Bless Those Who Truly Walk The Path Not Simply Use It For Their Own Gains.
