Nice job of setting up a scenario that is unmaliable.

I find it interesting that the definition of the word Chrsyalis refers to the Mucus Threaded Membrane Sack that is succreated by a caterpillar that the caterpillar metamorphosises within thereby going through a Physiological Transformation into what we have termed a Butterfly or Moth and being that these insects are considered representations of transformation and transition.

This indicates to me that you are either a person going through a Physiological Transition and Transformation or that you have gone through a Physiological Transition and Transformation.

Greetings everyone! My name is Chrysalis and I am a member of the Tribe of Gaea.  (We just posted our group to Paganspace.)  I work in the human services field as a Social Worker, and as such, I often feel I have to be very careful about what I say and do--(outing myself could cause some serious issues at work, particularly since I work for the government.)  It would be wonderful to finally see a day where we can be who we are and get out of the broom closet, so to speak.  I'm definitely interested in learning more about the issues and ways to advocate for Pagans in the workplace and the world in general.

8.Pagans being profiled by police officers while wearing a peace tied Athamae at a outdoor ritual until the ritual begins and then the athamae is removed and used for its purpose in circle and then re-sheathed and re-peace tied and yet the police are still watching the whole time and then they approach while the pagans are in transit to their car and they arrest them for carrying a concealed weapon which was not concealed at all.

 

9.Practicing witchcraft in some countries is still a offense

that has a sentence of either death by stoning,burning,

beheading or firing squad.

 

10.Witchcraft practioners are constantly depicted in negative fashion

and never shown in any other lights other than this but such misrepresentation has never been corrected by the A.C.L.U. or a Circut Court.

5. Pagans being told by their landlords that if they are practicing witchcraft while living in the landlord's property that they will be evicted.

 

6. Pagans being told what kind of clothing they can wear at a public high school or college or university that does not have a dress code policy.

 

7.Up until recently pagans were not allowed to have their religious symbol on the head stones of their family members whom were pagan and in the military which is another right that people who enter into the military do not lose upon entrance.

Where does one even begin?

 

1.Pagans being told that there is a height requirement on bon-fires that take place out doors and the bonfire is inside a large cast iron cauldron.

 

2.Pagans being told that they can not wear their pentacles out at work when everybody else is allowed to wear their crucifixes out at work.

 

3.Pagans being told that they cannot practice their faith and hold a rite on a military base even though that is not one of the rights you lose while in the military.

 

4. Pagans being told that if they practice their beliefs in their households while in a custody battle with their soon to be ex that they can potentially lose custody of their kids.

 

These are just some examples i have heard about or heard of.

I have written some articles that most of you might be interested in reading; especially if you live in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Hi, I was accused of burning a pentagram into my carpet for which i was evicted. this has been a while ago. It was an accidental fire. I am still getting over that one. It just so happened that when my lamp caught fire in burned in the shape of a perfect circle. I am still unsure who started this rumor but I have a sneaking suspicion...
