I have been trying to figure out whether or not I am a Pagan.
I looked in several dictionaries and now I'm really confused.
One says a pagan is one who has more then one God, another says that all religions that predate all existing religions are pagan. Christians say everything except Christianity is pagan. I'm beginning to wonder just what the word actually means, if anything.
Christians use the word with distane, others seem to rejoice in using the word to describe themselves. Now if paganism is a "current religion" then those who practice it really are not pagans then are they?
I think Christians often confuse pagans and wicca's and actually anyone else. Indeed probably the JW's even call other Christians pagan because they celibrate Christmas, a pagan holiday...LOL
So maybe to Islams, Christians are the pagans.....Hmmmm
To a humanist, Christians are now the pagans, believing in that old time Religion instead of evolution or science which is much newer.
Anybody out there think they know what a pagan is?
