    Pagan News & Pagans in the News

    Pagan author, Kenny Klein arrested for child porn:

    “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

    Somehow seems appropriate given all three of his books are about fairy tales and exploiting virgins and such.

    Shocker!

    Pagans are like all other folk.

    Some are shit, some aren't.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    I never heard of him, as I don't really get out much in the pagan community. There are only two pagan events in Louisville and I haven't yet been to any of them. I just shake my head that a man would get off watching kiddy porn. Can't he find some adult porn or have sex with his girlfriend more often, if he has one. Though, after this one, I doubt that he'll have any. Also, he's going to get sexually assaulted in prison. Prisoners don't like men that like kiddy porn.

    Margot Adler--NPR correspondent, Wiccan priestess, Pagan activist, and (probably one of the biggest reasons I'm Pagan) author of Drawing Down the Moon (it was the first book I read on the subject, when I checked it out of the library in 1991), died yesterday in her home in NYC, after a 3 year struggle with cancer, at the age of 68.

    Re: Pagan News & Pagans in the News

    I just found out this morning about her passing, this is very sad news.
    She also had a huge impact on my path with her book "Drawing Down the Moon" when Corbin loaned me his copy many years ago. Margot Adler was a very special person indeed.
    Gargoyles watch over me...I can hear them snicker in the dark.


    Pull the operating handle (which protrudes from the right side of the receiver) smartly to the rear and release it.

    Now that's sad news. Drawing Down the Moon was the first pagan book I ever got my hands on. Found it a a library, just like you. Rest in peace, Margot.
