Isms, schisms...well, that's the way it is in the world of the Occult nowadays - and has been since the advent of the male-dominated Religions. Following on Amy's discussion, and agreeing in essence with the sentiment that truth comes out of listening to other's opinions and then , having all of the relevant facts at one's disposal, making up one's own mind about which "current" one resonates with personally, can only be for the greater good.
Over the years I have made no secret or bones about the differences between Satanism and pagan spirituality, and having been expelled from Pagan Space because of it - the mods there are incredibly biased and do not hesitate to interfere where they deem it necessary - I made a little video all about these differences and , although most of my videos have been banned in many countries, I had the idea that perhaps centuries of ignorance and bias against genuine nature-based pagan spirituality due to deliberate mis-identification with Satanism could be resolved.
Satanism is not pagan spirituality, as Satanism arose from Christianity. The Biblical Devil - well, the New Testament Devil, has never and will never be worshiped by genuine pagans. Pagan spirituality is much older than Satanism; and pre-patriarchal peoples had no concept of an all-powerful Devil who would evidently delight in making our lifetimes full of misery and then, have the power to torture us long after we have departed from this current lifetime. Pagans do not live in fear, nor teach fear - which to me was always the big comparative difference between male-dominated religions and Goddess oriented spirituality, where all life, especially the lives of animals, is sacred.
I posted this here as I enjoy the opportunity to discuss spiritual matters among my peers - so please feel free to join in, even if you are perhaps one of those compromised individuals who can't help but be incredibly nasty on a personal level whenever a contrary opinion is put out there.
At least I know that on this site, I won't be expelled by moderators who can't handle opposing opinions.
