Thread Name: BS: More pagan stuff
Subject: RE: BS: More pagan stuff
This is a fascinating thread. I wish I had more time and less work to do so I could read and comment on it all. I just had this one bit to offer. In the early early days of christianity, christians were considered pagans by the dominant culture of there time, the Romans. SO the idea of defining Pagan as anybody who subscribes to pre- Christian ideology is bothersome to me. That may be how the dominant culture of OUR time defines it, but if you ask me (as member of that culture, albeit a somewhat fringe member) we are forgetting our roots.
