Monotheist ideas still plague Heathenism. It’s time for them to go.
In this column for the Heathen/Northern Traditions issue I was initially planning to write about Loki, perhaps the single most controversial deity in any Northern tradition. Loki is a God so associated with chaos (and hence, evil) that some denominations of Heathenry won’t even speak His name. But upon reflection, I concluded that the fact that some question whether or not a being clearly counted amongst the Gods by our ancestors is holy presupposes such a fundamental hole in the foundations of the Northern Tradition that I felt led to discuss a more fundamental point: eradicating monotheist dualism from our traditions, once and for all.
