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. First off, I hope all my readers, friends, and supporters out on the East Coast, and in the path of Hurricane Irene, are safe and have taken proper precautions. Though the storm is less intense than first expected, there’s still plenty of damage a storm of that size can do. COG First Officer Peter Dybing offers a prayer for safety, as does ADF Archdruid Kirk Thomas.
A big congratulations to Mrs. B from Confessions of a Pagan Soccer Mom for winning first place in the “faith” category at the Circle of Moms website. In addition, Angela from The Pagan Mom Blog, Lily from Witch Mom, Joni from Tales of a Kitchen Witch, Krista from Hearth-n-Home, and Witchy Mama placed in the top 10. Even more Pagan mom-blogs made it into the top 25. The reason for this impressive showing? A mobilization caused by some unfortunate Christian moms deciding to attack (and “pray for”) the Pagan moms for having the temerity to even place themselves in the “faith” category (though several Christian mom-bloggers did apologize for the behavior of their coreligionists).
