When one defines oneself as Pagan, it means she or he follows an earth or nature religion,
one that sees the divine manifest in all creation. The cycles of nature are our holy days, the
earth is our temple, its plants and creatures our partners and teachers. We worship a deity
that is both male and female, a mother Goddess and father God, who together created all
that is, was, or will be. We respect life, cherish the free will of sentient beings, and accept
the sacredness of all creation.
We are not evil. We don't harm or seduce people. We are not dangerous. We are ordinary people like you. We have families, jobs, hopes, and dreams. We are not a cult. This religion is not a joke. We are not what you think we are from looking at T.V. We are real. We laugh, we cry. We are serious. We have a sense of humor. You don't have to be afraid of us. We don't want to convert you. And please don't try to convert us. Just give us the same right we give you -- to live in peace. We are much more similar than you think.
