Pagans invented democracy and philosophy! That speaks for itself. What did Christianity ever invent that was so great???

As a Heathen my Gods ARE the wind and the snow and the rain and the Unconquerable Sun that shines on them all. I love Russian Rodnovery, myself I am a Germanic Heathen. Paganism will long outlast Christianity and other monotheistic book religions simply because the Gods of Nature are always there, and sooner or later the books will fade. And people will forget them.This incident is sad and ignorant. I hope Russia wakes up and abandons the folly of their foreign faith just as they abandoned the folly of Marx,and follow the faith that is in their blood.

And, as for your “argument” for destroying idols, I guess you wouldn’t mind if I blew up a cathedral?

Most of the wars in ancient times that involved the Pagans were because the Christians were trying to force their beliefs on them and basically forcing them into war. I am a very proud Pagan woman and I don’t curse, kill, or destroy anyone’s life. I think you may need to get your facts even remotely straight before bashing Paganism. Looking at your past comments, I think you are a very confused individual. For one, Christianity is “professing Christianity and it’s teachings”, that is all. That is what these violent individuals were doing, trying to spread their religion to the Pagans, and also to ANY other religion that doesn’t see things exactly how they do. Maybe one day you won’t be completely closed minded to the truth.

i know that we as pagans are more peaceful to nature and other people because we do not wish to destroy another but to let us be brothers and sisters with any one no matter what their faith is … i have been called a devil worshiper by many because i am pagan but i always just shrugged it off and asked them why do you call me that and many people would reply because we were told any other religion is evil or they did not understand what it is … then after that i would explain to them a bit about what my belief really were and they excepted it some of them even explained to others what i explained to them …

please feel free to email me at maggotmonkey99@gmail.com if fellow pagans around the world would like to keep in contact

Here, these Pagans were simply doing what felt right to them, building structures for their worship, and someone had to go and say, “Nope. They’re wrong. I’m right. I’m going to go destroy things to assert my point.”

The most negativity I’ve seen from Pagan to Christian is some bashing, some ranting. I can’t think of a time when I’ve heard of a Pagan destroying something that belonged to a Christian on purpose, just to assert their point. I could very well have just missed it, but to me it always seems that it’s the Christians bullying the Pagans.

You guys think it is because of Jesus some of us do not like you, no it’s because you’re dishonest.

To me martyrdom is akin to the idea of munchausen’s by proxy, it’s really milking a condition on yourself for attention or to feel weak… I just don’t why anybody would preach that other’s should model themselves after this attitude . It’s like you ask for it and set up your children, countries, and people to get murdered… and not because we see you as chosen any God when it happens, but because you do things to bring it on yourself… It’s silly because Christian sects have killed millions more people throughout history than any other religion on earth, including groups that were irreligious and militantly against religion.

It’s your own fault if it happens. Nobody really wants to persecute you, it’s a waste of time. GROW UP!

I almost got arrested hundreds of times for looking dark to Christians at my school, I couldn’t even think that I was being persecuted for this… I just don’t understand this drama you guys bring on.

You know a religions false if:

1. They kill people for knowing the world is round (wonder what other victims of the inquisitions were right about, hmmm… makes you think…)

2. Endorse slavery (Christianity and Islam have a long history of slavery)

3. Practice Human sacrifice (yes witch burnings count as Human sacrifice, get over it)

4. Give yourself a false sense of entitlement to steal other peoples resources as with the Bull of Borgia stealing Native American gold.

5. Create artificial man made divisions like Royalty and Commoner ( getting away from these fake divisions are a huge reason why people immigrate here to the US).

She said that suffering was a gift from God. She spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty, which is the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction. And she was a friend to the worst of the rich, taking misappropriated money from the atrocious Duvalier family in Haiti (whose rule she praised in return) and from Charles Keating of the Lincoln Savings and Loan. Where did that money, and all the other donations, go? The primitive hospice in Calcutta was as run down when she died as it always had been.
As for “jesus”. Well theres no proof of him out side of the bible, and if you ask me, he does not exist, so you argument does not hold water to be turned into “whine”!!!

Christ was teaching something completely and radically different than the Hebrew synagogues (churches) of his day. That is why now, 2000 years later, teachings of the old ways are having such a revival.

These ancient teachings are radically and completely different from those that have been stuffed down our throats since the advent of proselytizing, or witnessing and sharing, the path of Christ.

People are sick of being told this ‘one way’ is the only way to paradise, and they are looking to the old ways to get their souls where they should be.

But there is only one god, so I guess you base your life on a complete contradiction. And if according to what you believe if “God” had given his only begotten Son, that how come it states that you are all your “God’s” children?? I am Celtic Pagan and damn proud of it.

Your faith has thrown off the balance, and stolen most of your holidays and practices straight from the Pagan followings. Pretty ironic that you have a holiday called “Easter” or Ēostre, and you just happen to always practice it when the Spring Equinox.

Or how you practice such holidays as Christmas, another ironic thing being that Yule was practiced long before that, from Dec. 21-Jan1st hum reminds me of a song the 12 days of Christmas.

Or the fact that in the name of your oh so “loving god” people like the Romans killed every Pagan man, woman, and child that they came across in the name of this loving god.

And just to add was it not your messiah that said he is without sin may throw the first stone?? I find it hard to believe with all the commandments of your faith that you have not once sinned.

I do not walk around trying to convert people, I do not destroy your “Holy” idols, I do not try to brainwash you, or come to your door and invade your home trying to sell what I believe in. So what right do you have to do so to others, what right do you feel you have to destroy another’s belief, heritage or culture??

It was a snake that guided me into the waters of a river and I emerged a young man.

Is there any tradition in Early Ukrainian history of an underground pagan movement that followed Veles and burned icons?

I’m just trying to figure out what this all means. Genetically my ancestors came from the Ukraine region, although I’m an american.

I apologize for interrupting, but I know little of Ukrainian pagan history and just have a feeling in my gut that this vision wasn’t just allegorical.

If Zoroastrian numbers drop to the current numbers of pagans, will we demote Zoroastrianism to cult? Even though they can see haloes on angels and read about the Christian trinity, and know that their old ideas inspired the new ones?

You should not be proud of your religion for its numbers. If you judge by originality and age, fanaticism about Christianity seems pretty puzzling as well. Besides, there’s a difference between being very vocal about a belief and being a fanatic about a belief.

Still, the fact that almost all of our ancestors were polytheists means that we are inheritors to genuine ancient belief system, and if you know of old gods, the new trinity seems like a recent rip-off of many older ones. If you judge a religion by age and originality, fanaticism about Christianity seems pretty puzzling as well.

We must also learn to accept our pasts, look at the Greeks for instance, they are christians but still celebrate some pagan festivals such as lighting the olympic torch.
We should let the world know that our culture wasnt a result of christianization, we had an amazing culture even before christ was born according to some historians and its about time we show it.

Mother, Father, Child….that is much more balanced and reflects the image we are created in. (Ancient Egyptians believed this)
By the way, the image of the Madonna & baby Jesus, are a re-styled version of the Goddess Isis & her son, Horus.

If God really loved his only “begotten Son”, he would not want a human sacrifice to take place! What kind of sadistic parent would? Besides, we are all responsible for our own karma. No one can do it for us! It’s simple, really. As long as you harm none, do what you will!!! That’s true free will…with no dire consequences from a jealous ego-maniac who punishes you for making the wrong decisions.

Here’s a theory I read: Jesus was the biological son of Gabriel (a high priest at the Temple) & Mary. Mary was a Virgo, not a virgin. When her pregnancy was confirmed, a marriage was arranged…she rejected the first selection…and then agreed to marry Joseph. Jesus was born & when he was 7, he went to the Temple mystery school. He later married Mary Magdalene. By the way, the bible says that Jesus had brothers & sisters, so there’s no way Mary was a virgin her whole life. Plus, I’m sure Joseph had sex with his wife!

It’s a shame that the bible has been edited and mistranslated so much. All “heretical” gospels were banned. The Christians also burned down the library in Alexandria.

Knowledge is power & knowledge can be empowering!

Paganism should have a right to exist, and than God it does so, even within the confines of Christianity.

Christ Himself would have loved the Pagans, that’s why He opened up His teachings for ancient Greeks and Persians.

Sorry , I have to laugh here. In Russia most of those who present themselves as Chrisitans go to Church couple of times a year at best. I’ve never met a person who visits Church every week in my life (I’m not talking about crazy sectarians, like Jehovah’s Witnesses). Though old people are more religious.
I’d say typical Russian is 50% atheist, 30% christian and 20% Pagan. I like it that way. I hope my children won’t be religious too.

It wasn’t until years after he was dead that Paul started signing up other people so they could take their money!

That just one of the reasons Jewish people laugh at Christians behind their back.

The same goes for Muslims (must be born Arab) and Hindus (must be born Hindu). By their own holy books you must be born to it. Everyone else is just being scammed.

that is so sad. being pagan myself this kind of thing tends to bother me.

when you stop to realize that all violent acts are born of fear (fear the “other” people might be right, or might “win) then you realize that committing such intolerant acts signifies a lack of faith in your OWN religion. In doing so you also make your faith look bad.

human nature i suppose. the irony is that as long as any god exists, there will be warfare, hatred, prejudice and killing. Good Game.
