PaganNewsBeagle Watery Wednesday Community News August 20

Today's Watery Wednesday emphasizes community news from all over our wonderful movement of Pagans, Heathens, Witches, Wiccans, and polytheists. Lots of things moving and shaking today!

On the Norse Mythology blog, we hear from Master Sergeant (MSgt) Matt Walters, who led the campaign to convince the US Air Force to include Ásatrú and Heathenry as options in its religious preference list.

PaganNewsBeagle Fiery Tuesday August 19

There's lots to be fired up about today! In an environment awash with activist news, today we are concentrating on some of the stories we've come across that *aren't* being covered by Big Media: an African witch who saved Tutsis during the Rwandan genocide, Pagan civil rights activists speak out, Indigenous People's Day, and a trip with the Icelandic Pirate Party. Enjoy your day!

This story of a courageous African healer who used her Craft (and a good deal of guile) to save others from the rampaging mobs during the Rwandan genocide is an inspiration.

The woman who started the campaign to remove the 10 Commandments monument at City Hall in Bloomfield, New Mexico speaks about her faith, life, and the place of religion in the public square.

PaganNewsBeagle Airy Monday 18

In today's dispatch we include "airy" topics both literal and metaphorical: two stories of NASA space science, and three accounts of Pagan topics in academic circles.

This story is a personal favorite: a team of amateurs and retired scientists have "recaptured" a NASA satellite in the first-ever case of "citizen" astrophysics.

PaganNewBeagle Faithful Friday August 15

Happy Friday! Today, the Pagan News Beagle concentrates on news of (mostly Pagan) religion in the modern world. Lots of questions today: why worship fierce goddesses (from a Hindu perspective), why should Pagans care about Mormon feminism, why are there so few nurturing goddesses in devotional polytheism? Plus a 20th century occultist, Buddhist thoughts on depression and a song dedicated to Hecate.

An amazing 20th century occultist Marjorie Cameron (and upcoming an art show in her honor) is the subject of this fascinating story on the HuffingtonPost.

PaganNewsBeagle Fiery Tuesday August 12

It's Fiery Tuesday and we've got lots of news of activism on behalf of our many communities and our wider world. Pagan perspectives on progressive events with a Christian focus, 10 commandment monument in violation of constitution, sexual abuse in Paganism and religious persecution in Iraq.

Star Bustamonte gives a Pagan perspective on the "Moral Monday" protest campaigns in North Carolina. (Spoiler alert: she likes the progressive causes of the campaign, but not the way the campaign itself is framed in a solely Christian context."
