Gods&Radicals is now open to the public! While not ‘active’ yet, there’s plenty of stuff to see there. I recommend particularly perusing the list of fantastic writers therein!
Also, Many Gods West has announced an initial selection of presenters. Also, a fantastic list.
Sannion’s got a great (I mean very, very great) series regarding honoring the land and the ancestors of that land. This piece is quite good, and this other piece is quite very good. Few have done much work to compile the theoretical framework of an anti-colonialist localized worship, and he’s on it.
And speaking of anti-colonialism and anti-racism. did you read this piece by Brennos? I’m surprised it didn’t get much attention–it’s a great piece, and also points to some questions about the (de-)politicisation of religion, particularly Paganism.
Those questions are beginning to be asked again, and I suspect much of the underlying conflict between (mostly white middle-class) establishment folks and (much more diverse) ‘radicals’ in Paganism comes from these questions finally being asked. Those who are asking those questions get horrible flak, sure. But there’s enough of us now, in all traditions, who are refusing to remain silent.
That’s fucking awesome. And it will probably be messy.
Hold on to your wands, yeah?
