Rethinking How Paganism Engages Culture

The Little Gods: Spirits of Place in Modern Paganism (Paganism 101)
In a previous post, we talked about gods, goddesses, and the many ways they can be worshiped in a modern pagan practice.

Cults? In my life? It’s more likely than you think.
In my last post, I talked about how the Law of Attraction and Christian prosperity gospel both use the same thought control techniques as cults. I’ve received several public and private replies to that post: some expressing contempt for “sheeple” who can be lead astray by cults, and others who say my post made…
The Law of Attraction, Prosperity Gospel, and Other Ways of Controlling How People Think
In the words of Rhonda Byrne, who brought the Law of Attraction to popular consciousness with her book The Secret:“Life doesn’t just happen to you; you receive everything in your life based on what you’ve given.” Or, to put it even more bluntly: “You attract to you what you think about most.” At…
