meetup.com. if it hasn't been mentioned is a really good fist place to look for like-minded people looking for fellowship.
funny, i keep glancing down and seeing people fighting about christianity, and then i wonder, where did that even come up? LOL why do people jump at any chance to argue or devalue another person's beliefs or personal choices?? *shakes head*
The roman pagans have only a few traces to the modern neo-pagan movement, whose core beliefs are centered around Celtic beliefs, the theme being somewhat malleable, some pagans do iconify roman/greek deities, but mostly those neo-pagans derive their beliefs from hermetic witchcraft (mostly in italy) essentially a peaceful religion with nature themes, similar to native american tribal magick, the modern witches are far better educated on religion than the average parish minister, as theology lends practicioners most of their credibility.
I think lili777 left, no hubs, and this is a six week old thread, there were two replies and they were not all that kind. Lili joined a bit before my time and probably got scared away. i hope Lynne's e-mail will bring lili back, but it is probably a lost cause.
There are countless pagan groups across the Western world, of diverse types and interests. If a person was genuinely interested in learning more all they'd have to do was a Google search, or place an advert in a relevant magazine (which can be bought from any mainstream vendor.)
Whether your interests are in Druidry, Wicca or one of the many other forms of witchcraft, Rosicrucianism, Theosophy, gnostic philosophy, etc., it's all there waiting. All a person need do is seek it out.
Not new to this subject I might add, use some discretion, often the blatant ranters that intrude into any religious site, be it even to just look around, might feel unwelcome, and if they get beligerant. often action is taken to boot because the servers are often independantly owned (be nice)
