    I was doing some research on Christmas and found this!  I might have a sick sense of humour.. but found this utterly funny!

    This will generate some response... Take a look! 

    http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Pagan

    I particularly found this funny...

    'Followers of Paganism are often called Druids, Wiccans, Witches, Evil Satan Worshipers and Smelly Hippies (Must Die). The amount of different pagan branches and subdivisions are as abundant as christian churches, with typical pagans viewing themselves as members of a dis... ur.. I mean, unorganized faith. They may refer to themselves as Pagans, Heretics or just plain Communists, but it should be noted that the Nazis, Catholics and Atheists were also Pagans.'

    This article is really a must view! hehehe

    I dont know if I find this funny at all - right now I am rather shocked - as this certainly is NOT a definition of Paganism...

    And whomever wrote obviously does not know their history, as Christianity and such were actually taken from the Pagans...and many traditional celebrations that we continue today originated with the Pagans...

    The humor I can find in it - it the person's shear stupidity...

    Eeeeeesh!

    Well that's what unclycopedia is. It's a parody of wikipedia, and contains lots of stuff they call "humour".

    Some of the people on there have an agenda, seeing as they don't like wikipedia's efforts in moderating the pages and blocking access because of vandalism and such.

    LOL, Lyrics its open alright and for the most part if you took the article to heart the belief that harm none is not present at all in that article. It is articles like that, that cause things of this nature to be misconstrued and people not understanding what it truly means.

    I can see the underlying humor in a sense but then I also see where Believers, Non-believers etc get all mixed up because of things that are taken to the extreme with both sides.

    I await the next installment of your articles as I am on a path of learning.

    later thanks again - what does it mean when multiple questions are asked in one's thread and they won't respond to any? Could mean you think I'm out of line and can't be bothered to waste your time responding, could be you know i'm right and am embarrassed or could be you went to get something to eat and are unaware how pissed I am.  Regardless, may your humor continue to entertain many as I see it has here and content be continually stimulating.  Have a great Day

      While I think Shaz was trying to post a funny, it backfired on her. Why did it backfire? It backfired because the title suggests confrontation and then the original post on the topic went on to further suggest confrontation. I don't think that was her intent here, but that is the end result.

      Quite possibly this is what happens with a lot of threads that get started this way. I'm really not sure but the end result is always the same. There is never an honest conversation on any good topic. And, yes I am interested in this topic so I consider it good.

      This could have turned into a really awesome discussion on why when Paganism did come before Christianity does it still hold the connatations of Satanism when there have been many to come along who speak the true essense of Pagans and Wicca.

        shazwellynposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        No, this was supposed to be humorous.  I live in an area where we are all hippies.  I go to a lot of festivals - it is very 'nature child' here in Glastonbury.  But found the pagan definition funny.  So did many of the pagans that live near me! 

        I guess not all witches have a sense of humour.

        Love, peace and harmony x

                Its ok.  She doesn't know me.  I forgive.  Anyway, she is bi polar, so sometimes emotions can get the better.  She must have had a bad day and it is probably better to take it out on an a.n.other on the internet than someone in reality. 

                She might not realise, but we have a lot in common.  One day she might come round.  What will be will be smile x

        I actually explained why this happened. It has nothing to do with US humor vs UK humor and Lyrics is in Canada not US.

        I do get the humor that you found in it but for someone who is a Pagan or practitioner of Wicca these types of articles can do a lot of harm even when they are only meant to be funny or satire. The fact that you started the thread with an open invitation to Atheist and Christians made for a combative format from the start. It's all in the wording I'm afraid.

          It might be best to let this subject drop.  The first law is... first do no harm.
