Pagans for Religious Recognition

This group is for those of us that are willing to stand up and have our voices be heard! It is time that our government realize that we deserve to be counted among those that are free from religious persecutions and social stigmas that accompany it.

Greetings to all new members please post a comment below telling us a little about yourself and if there is anything we can do to help, or list any ideas you may have. Any and all will be considered. We are all here for the same reason....


I am on a mission. It is time that our voice is heard. The fire hasn't just been lit inside of me, the inferno is raging. I have to do this. I don't think I have ever felt so passionately about anything. There are so many things to say, I look at all of us and think about some of the discussions that we have had in the past about problems members have had with their children's school system, problems in the work place, problems in the military, even in the post office. I want to see a day in my lifetime when I can talk freely about my religion to any one, and know that it is okay! I want to know that I can ask off from work so that I can observe one of my holidays. I want to see our government finally admit that there are other people in this country who love their Gods, Goddesses, and want to celebrate and talk about that celebration. There is only one way to do this... shout and keep shouting. Whether it is in writing, or in spoken word. I am calling out to all of those who came before, who suffered the fires, who hung from the gallows, and drown in the waters of religious intolerance. Lend me your spirit to keep me strong! I promise you I will NOT stop! They will NOT quiet me. We will have our say! I can only hope that my efforts are rewarded with a dawning of a new day when I will rest easy knowing that my daughter can practice what she wants safely and without fear!

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

I have come to a road block... I have everything organized and legal. The letter writing campaign around here not going so well. I guess that is what I get for living in a town where there are 9 churches in the city limits and only 5 red lights. At least the innocent kids that will have to die for us to get a traffic light in front of the high school will go to "Heaven".... Sorry, I am just feeling very disgruntled.

Please read the essay by Ryan Smith in Witchvox this week. It's called 'We must hide no longer'

Strength in respecting each others diversity and a unity without hierarchy. Interlocking independent groups aware of what we are all doing. There truly is a growing trend of harassment wherever the right wing brainwashed extreme can take out the pitchfork to discriminate for a job as someone said or have unconstitutional questioning by police as someone else pointed out.
Economy needs to get some footing and i I really think next summer there is going to be a creative burst of energy as all these small businesses we are starting will begin to grow and culture is going to explode. Twitter in Iran was a glimpse of the power that people can utilize today and it appears that christians are looking for a clash with paganism. Something is going on in those pulpits of intolerance because they are seeing demons everywhere and many people are looking askance at that and are ready to abandon patriarchal religion. Im doing alot research for a personal project and there seems to be alot of solitaries- it seems-that are -for real- getting harassed, the nature of solitary makes us vulnerable. There is a civil rights commision that we may utilize and someone mentioned the Lady Liberty League.
One idea I had was anywhere that might have two drinking fountains you could put up two signs. "Christians only" and "pagans" on another just to exhibit how it is similar to race discrimination.
We need to ally with positive forces such as encouraging any bans on clear cut logging. We're about life and respect and nature and alot of the economy is about paper products. Clear cutting persists, habitats destroyed and paper and wood recycling never gets off the ground. Woodlot management would be about a million homeowners selling wood from their land sustainably instead of ten monster companies filling our needs. I'm saying pagans need to be doing more than looking for religous rights, pagans are going to be one of the engines that abandons the greed oriented system and leads the way in the future.
There is a tremendous focus on greed, and I feel there is alot of momentum for reform and all efforts such as yours Aebh Thistle will be rewarded with advancements. Pagans need to stand with Lady Liberty to achieve full freedom. Till one witch anywhere in this country is unable to constitutionally express their freedom then we have not yet achieved our goal.

Just to let you know I have been very busy with all of this 501c3 status stuff. To become recognized in the legal aspect of things is a difficult thing and time consuming thing to do. We are so close now. I am actually getting excited.

I'm an eclectic gay pagan and proud too!

Greetings to all new members of this group. just to kinda let you guys know where I have been. I have been really busy getting a pagan group organized and there are more of them locally than I would ever have imagined. We are working on our articles so we can get a 501c3 status as a charitable organization that way we can approach our local govs, and state govs, as a organized unit. I have a lawyer that is really helpful and is being extremely accommadating. Everything is coming together so well. We are trying so everyone keep your head up and speak up. Hugs--Aebh

Trust me, you are not alone. I too have seen the pain of others, and I to wish to stop it, to make sure that others no longer have to feel alone. There are more of us than people like to think. Why is it that our country offers religious freedom with one hand, and strikes US down with the other? We will see freedom in our lifetimes, on that I will stake my life.

Well Circle Sanctuary is the bomb and the forefront of religious rights with it's Lady Liberty League. Have a problem with kids at school and pagan religion, I would call Selena Fox. It is amazing what those guys can do.
