I may be new to what I would like to call "my new religion", but from what I've observed, it doesn't seem to be much different.
From what I've viewed, many Pagans (no matter what specifically you delve in) seem to take offence to anyone who is new to the religion itself. When the religion is only starting out as well. It was brought around in 50's or so and the creator of it was an old man.
Why do many Pagans take it so seriously? Not saying it shouldn't be but why can't it be said that someone who is new to this new religion would like to practice it or learn more about it?
It's not any more difficult to learn about than any other religions.
It's supposed to be about the understanding of the Universe and using those powers and such, and finding your inner enlightenment. So why not let it be so? Why not encourage it?
