    I've always avoided Heathen groups for these reasons. It is a problem that really isn't addressed and when it is addressed is usually beat back by deniers, apologists, or the "Yeah, but not everyone is..." excuse.

    I absolutely relate with the Heathen adoration and veneration of ancestor's, and the ritual practice rooted in that.

    The UK Heathen group I belong to, bans all discussion of politics on its Facebook page.

    I'm aware that members have political beliefs across the spectrum. I've seen some of their posts on their own timelines and certainly I would disagree with some of their views, but there's nothing racist or grotesque (at least that I've seen!).

    When I first started investigating Heathenry/Asatru I joined lots of groups on FB and unfollowed any that had overt political views, or allowed others to post them without comment or criticism.

    Religious politics has a very poor reputation, regardless of the politicians beliefs. Overtly religious politicians have invariably been revealed to be colossal hypocrites and should be avoided.

    Sadly the change in philosophy when it came to what was acceptable to share came to be very recently.
    Groups online are fine, the major loss is the offline activity the group provided.

    Still, it's only one group of many.

    Depends where you live. Sometimes its the only game in town. It doesn't help if its one of many in a global sense if there's nothing else local.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett
