  • Faitheist: A Lesson for Pagans in Storytelling

    Faitheist: A Lesson for Pagans in Storytelling

    Faitheist serves as an example to Pagans, polytheists, Witches, Druids and Heathens (I think it’s time we get our own LGBTQAI abbreve, no?) of the impact and power that storytelling can have on furthering our ideals. Browse the bookshelf at a local metaphysical bookstore, and you will find book after book which explains the hows […]

    I’m Not Catholic, But I Am Concerned

    The first thing that sprung to mind when I learned that Pope Benedict was resigning from his station of service was a series of quips and puns.   WWBD? He’d quit. Two living popes in Rome?
