Unleash the Hounds! (Link Roundup)

Jason Pitzl-Waters —  March 31, 2011 — 10 Comments

There are lots of articles and essays of interest to modern Pagans out there, sometimes more than I can write about in-depth in any given week. So The Wild Hunt must unleash the hounds in order to round them all up.

That’s it for now! Feel free to discuss any of these links in the comments, some of these I may expand into longer posts as needed.

    There are no such things as witches, and if there were, we'd execute them.

    If I claimed to be goblin, I wouldn't blame my employer for firing me.

    The comments at the WaPo article pretty much prove the point.

      Jason's column must be getting successful; it's attracting trolls.

      What I'd like to say is- someone who is a follower of seid or galdr (it irks me that there are hardly any REAL pagans on this newcast, just a bunch of Wiccans) has a right to call themselves a shaman, what have you, et cetera, but only if they know what they are doing, and they are following a strict traditionalist guideline. An association with "magic" or shamanism in a religion should be one of great age. Shamanism is OLD. Witchcraft is very very new, what makes it right? I have great respect for those who can say why their practice is important, why their gods and goddesses are important, and why their traditions are justified and hallow.

    Glad I'm not the only one that doesn't think that Camelot series is worth the electricity it takes to watch it. Seriously, WHY do they always get Arthur wrong? Not even going to bother watching it.

    Camelot is not about fact, it is about legend. It is impossible to get Arthur right because we don't know enough about him. But in the realm of legend, it is equally impossble to get it wrong.

      In the same way that there is a right way to capture the nature and spirit of characters from books to the big screen. There is a right way to capture a hero from legend to the screen. Making him a scrawny slip of a man-boy is not capturing King Arthur right. In my opinion. I'm not clamoring for it to be taken off the air, as through my life I've had to endure a lot of interpretations I didn't like at all. I just get annoyed and am pleased to see I'm not the only one.

    It's sad that no-one sees from my point of view. Seriously, I'm just trying to say that if she were any pagan religion other than Wicca it wouldn't have happened, Wicca is not favourable by the Christians et cetera because it is a real religion.

    If all those folks in Ray's sweat lodge were exposed to organophosphates at levels sufficient to kill some of them, then I'd say that all the rest do not have great prospects for good health and long life. But I guess Ray is willing to take the heat for being the guy that burned organophosphate-drenched wood to heat his sweat lodge if it gets him off the manslaughter charge.

    Pagans getting/being pregnant on Reality TV–Genius!!!

    Yes, I sold my soul to the Devil the first day I tottered in to my public school kindergarten class. It only got more abysally infernal after that. The day I graduated my public high school, the Devil Ixself shook my hand and named me a Hell-Wight. Bwaaahhhh Haaa Haa.

      Why do I hear this word "civil liability" over and over again in my head?

      I think Ray is done for. If he doesn't land in jail(like he should) he's going to get sued into oblivion.

    As far as giving up Catholism for Lent I think it's a great idea. Though I'm not sure many Catholics can surriveive a whole 40 days without guilt. Imagin the poor man as a Pagan in a happy well lit kitchen, calming inscence burning, and a batch of oatmeal cookies in the oven and no guility feelings for been warm, happy, or appreciative.
