Subject: RE: The Pagan Alternative. What's the music?
Before I get slammed - I mean, gently corrected - by those more knowledgable than I, here is the disclaimer that should have been with my last post:

Although I found the Golden Bough to be informative regarding non-Christian beliefs and practices, the man who wrote it was most likely a Christian himself, as well as a historian, and there could very well be a tilt to the landscape he paints that is not noticed until you view it from outside the room, so to speak. One source is never enough. They say that history is written by the winners, which is why it's always good to "triangulate" your information before you incorporate it.
