Pagan Media Links: Oregon Vortex Edition

Jason Pitzl-Waters —  June 7, 2012 — 6 Comments

I’m out of town today, attending a doctor’s appointment in Ashland, Oregon, so I don’t have the time to do my usual exploration and analysis of news of interest to the Pagan community. Instead, I’d like to offer some links from across the Pagan media world that have drawn my attention. So enjoy, I’m hoping to hit the Oregon vortex on my way home!

That’s all I have for now, have a great day, I’ll be back tomorrow.

    Thanks, Jason.  Hope your doctor’s appointment is mild.

    I liked the exploring of the history of Paganism interview.

    Then it said that Neo-Paganism was derived from Wicca. Which made me twitch. I’d agree that Wicca is a branch of Neo-Paganism, but not that it is the progenitor of it.

    After all, modern Druidry isn’t Wicca derived, let alone Heathenry.

    Also nice to see a Pagan saying that money is not evil, for a change.

      Even by Tully’s very low standards, this one is a real whopper:

      “Authenticity is a
      contentious topic in Paganism. I think with Neo-Paganism − derived as it
      is from Wicca which dates to the 1950s and which itself is derived from
      late 19th and early 20th century folklore, anthropology, and attempted
      histories of the Witch Trials ….

         It disturbed me, considering that the interview makes it sound as though she is an authority on the history of (Neo) Paganism.

    The boingboing post is interesting but it has me thinking about how neo nazis are trying to sully the reputation of pagan groups when they use Icelandic, viking traditions and take the name of the  Golden dawn to advance their discriminatory agenda.
