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, in the earth without reference to any transcendental spiritual force. In my mind there is…
Instructive examples on why interfaith work is a good idea
I deeply believe the problems in our country are more of the heart than of the head. Here are some youtubes courtesy of John Morehead of the Evangelical Chapter of the Foundation for Religious Diplomacy on Facebook. They speak more eloquently than anything I can write that interfaith work is a good idea for anyone…
The controversy over Pink Slime – and what it means.
The controversy over pink slime is helping educate Americans to the fact that corporations are as beneficial to agriculture as they are to politics. Tom Laskawy put it pithily: “What pink slime represents is an open admission by the food industry that it is hard-pressed to produce meat that won’t make you sick.” But the…
How the “war on religion’ backfired into a war on women
Here is a really good article by Tina DuPuy on how the Republicans got themselves into such a mess with America’s more intelligent women. Left undiscussed is how the extreme pathological masculinity of both their deity and their leaders made that slip so very easy.
Bees, pesticides, and environmental ethics

One of the few authoritarian right wingers with solid academic credentials, Harvey Mansfield, wrote a book, Manliness…
Exposing the War on Women
I hope every American gets to see this ad, maybe several times. From a Pagan perspective what is happening is really important because it is an attempt to dismiss the importance of the feminine in all its forms except the submissive and obedient housewife. No group has done more to transform Americans’ sense of the…
“Unparalleled” ancient Pagan sanctuary found in Norway
Very cool. The article say a lot and gives links.
Ostara, the Spring Equinox, is always beautiful here in Sonoma County, California. This year was threatening to be different because we have had a disturbingly dry winter. The grass was green, but very short. We were having to water parts of our garden, something largely unheard of for this time of year. As we began…
