Struggle for Acceptance: Media Visibility and Minority Religion

Struggle for Acceptance: Media Visibility and Minority Religion

Our very own Ann Neumann, editor of The Revealer, was interviewed by Stephanie Whiteside for her piece, "Struggle for Acceptance: Media Visibility and Minority Religion."

Green = Death

From Resisting the Green Dragon: Dominion, Not Death, a new book (with a 4 disc DVD companion; look for a review by Jack Downey at The Revealer this week) that professes to expose the culture of death that is the foundation of the green movement:
The strange compulsion to societal suicide is a dogma in the...

Pagan Elitism

From Star Foster's recent post at Patheos:
To be an intellectual Pagan is to some degree an elistist thing. The communities that do offer support and sometimes resources are often semi-closed and even secretive. To study Paganism requires not merely dedication and time, but money, proper geography and heart. To enter into a Pagan tradition...

All-Odin, All The Time

“Moral relativism,” it seems, plagues even Pagans. Mike, an Odinist incarcerated in Michigan Department of Corrections, writes to new Witch magazine to ask why it covers other religions…

Something About Mary

The Revealer stopped by the website of Pan Gaia, a sort of thinking Pagan’s magazine, hoping to link to a fascinating piece we found in its pages on the newsstand. It’s an account of Paganism in the military, by a man who’s an officer and a Pagan — and a fighter jet pilot to boot, with a...

Paganism

MAGAZINES AND COLLECTIVES Witchvox is a sort of ecumenical forum for witches, heathen, and other pagans. PanGaia is a quarterly magazine that’s equal parts theology and trend reports on developments within Paganism. Why Wiccans Suck is, predictably, produced by a contrarian Wiccan who styles himself a sort of H.L. Mencken of a movement he can’t quite abandon. Wicca...
