History


Some pagans I have met seem to want to whitewash paganism as “we never do anything wrong”. The reality is that pagans are people too and like all people, will commit crimes.

Historically we fed Christians to the lions for entertainment and persecuted them because of their commitment to monotheism. Some pagans like to pretend that never happened.

I suspect this attitude helps abusers in the Pagan community to get away with their actions, as it’s less likely they will be believed than in other communities.
Please keep your eyes open as we are not saints.
