PaganNewsBeagle Watery Wednesday Community News October 1

Howdy, Beagle fans! In today's Watery Wednesday we have both (literal) water news and news from our many diverse Pagan+ communities. In the "water" category: a record fall run of Chinook salmon and sea turtle hatchlings run to the sea; and in community news we have a Pagan artist's exhibition in Minneapolis, an active discussion of Pagan elderhood; and no "three-fold law" in Gardnerian Wicca?

There's a record run of Chinook salmon in the Pacific Northwest this fall and fisheries managers are happy -- but puzzled.

PaganNewsBeagle Faithful Friday Sept 26

Happy Friday, Beagle-fans! Today we have a bouquet of religious stories starting out with one about not being religious. 7 varieties of unreligion; Hindu Goddess festival begins; teaching children values depends on politics and religion; selfies of Sikhs; Pagans on death and burial.

This story from Salon posits that there are seven kinds of unreligion (including pantheism, which is awfully close to many Pagan beliefs to my way of thinking, and maybe shouldn't be considered "unreligion" at all.)

PaganNewsBeagle Earthy Thursday Sept 25

For our Earthy Thursday feed today, we have five stories (and one lovely photo) about Gaia, our lovely planet and Earth goddess. A double rainbow; a deadly garden; rooftop gardening; butterfly conservation; climate change evolution; and small farm families.

Had to share this great double rainbow photo from a sacred place of polytheist interest.

PaganNewsBeagle Watery Wednesday Community News Sept 24

In our Watery Wednesday post today, we cover community news for Pagans & their allies including: a discrimination claim filed by a (Pagan) Auburn University professor for wrongful termination due to religion; the Air Force no longer requires "so help me God" in enlistment oaths; a UK paper profiles a local Witch; a great article on Canadian Pagans; and the Wild Hunt Pagan news site launches its 2014 Fall fundraising campaign.

Dr. Katharyn Privett-Duren was an award-winning English professor at Auburn University -- until she was terminated suddenly and inexplicably. Now she's filed a complaint with the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission because she believes she was fired for being Pagan. The Wild Hunt has the story.
