Re: “Speaking of religion: Pagans stir a fuss in Beebe

You are not in as much disagreement as you think.
Since the word Pagan was invented by the Roman Christians to insult those who would not bow to the new man-god, it did in fact cover ALL people who were not worshiping the god of Abraham in one form or another.
That includes, but is not limited to Hindu and Sioux.
You are correct that the Pagans did not call themselves such, but are defined as such in the language following the invention of Christianity.
I therefore maintain my definition.

Thank you for your support of Seekers Temple

Re: “Speaking of religion: Pagans stir a fuss in Beebe

A Pagan or Neo-Pagan is defined as someone who self-identifies as a Pagan or Neo-Pagan, or whose spiritual or religious practice or belief fits into one or more of the following categories:
- Honoring, revering, or worshipping a Deity or Deities found in pre-Christian, classical, aboriginal, or tribal mythology; and/or
- Practicing religion or spirituality based upon shamanism, shamanic, witchcraft, wizardry, sorcery or magickal practices; and/or
- Creating a new religion based on Pagan or Neo-Pagan religions and/or futuristic views of society, community, and/or ecology; and/or
- Focusing religious or spiritual attention primarily on the Divine Feminine; and/or
- Having the belief in multiple gods.
Fall into any of these categories, and you become Pagan.
The main difference in Pagan and Neo-Pagan is the influence of Monotheism. Before the idea of Monotheism, everyone was a Pagan. It is with the idea that one god was better than all the rest or indeed that only one god existed that religion began to fall to the depth we find it today.

Re: “Speaking of religion: Pagans stir a fuss in Beebe

Rebeccal,
It has been our intent to work this out without becoming a public issue. The mayor not only refuses to work it out, but he sent the church to do his dirty work. He has now even ordered our alderman not to talk to us as to insure we have no voice at all.
Michael Vande,
Your accusation that Seekers Temple is running some kind of money making scam is insulting and just plain wrong. We came to Beebe by invitation, mostly of young college students. We worked on this house for nine months. We are Arkansans and we like this town.
Not sitting down and shutting up doesn't make us thieves.

Re: “Beebe mayor has God's back

As High Priest of Seekers Temple, who is being obstructed and harassed by this Mayor and by the Lighthouse Pentecostal Church, we find it inhaling that this behavior is supported by so many and indeed at all.
Why should we not be allowed to worship our gods as the Christians do theirs?
We only wish to worship in peace and do feel it is the right of the Christians to bully us out of their town.
The Pagans of this country should have the same right of Freedom of Religion.
