    Question Calling Pagan People!

    Hi. With all the religious talks going on at present, I was wondering how many members we have here who live under the pagan umbrella?? Have we other pagans, wiccans, druids here? I know we have Pinky and myself but I don't ever recall anyone else being one.

    If you are, do you welcome questions from other members about your faith or do you prefer to keep it private? Myself, I am willing to answer any questions and willing to clear up misconceptions for the most part. Anyone else?

    I cannot claim to be a believer of your religion, but parts of it speak to me, I don't know if that counts? (as do parts of several religions, without taking the whole - i think this may be the case with many people).

    Maybe your poll needs another category - that of supporter.

    I didn't vote as I'm confused as to why "pagan" is different from wicca or druid or "other". What is your definition for the purpose of the poll?

    Hermeticists are considered pagan in that it is unorthodox, not one of the three main religions, and is considered polytheistic. Pagan is a very broad term. One definition is "worshipping false gods", which I doubt anyone who calls themselves pagan would agree with.

    Thank you for that info. I am not that versed with Hermeticism and did not know it was considered a form of paganism. I'll happily look into that. Do you have any site in plain English that you recommend?

    I put the choices as I did because one can be, say, pagan but not wiccan. I fall into that spot as I don't subscribe to the Goddess aspect and am pantheistic rather than polytheistic. I don't use the wiccan threefold law either for example. Or they can be druid but not necessarily pagan. or pagan but not "new age." I didn't want to confuse anyone and I'm not sure how to edit the poll or even if I can? But I do want to get a feel for who we have here even if the poll itself doesn't work we could scrap it and just discuss.
