Subject: RE: Pagan/Folk/Earth Music Reasearch Project
I think the pagan/Christian (and others) capitalisation thing is partly to do with the true parallel being between pagan and monotheistic, for example, being generic rather than specific. Hinduism, though "pagan" is a specific form (or group of forms) of religious belief and practice, which is not yet true of modern paganism. I don't really think the difference is entirely due to the values and bias of those who use lower case.
