With the advent of Facebook and social networking, we have the good fortune of reaching many people in a short amount of time. Recently I have joined an event on Face Book named “Coming out of the Broom Closet”
In just two days there are over 200 people-pagan, wiccans, heathens, witches, and druids that have posted to this event with concerns and support.
It is always reassuring when the pagan community at large comes together to support each other.
Here is their main page information.
“With all of the book religions crumbling around us, pagans are feeling stronger by the day. There are no real valid estimates as to how many Wiccans, Druids, Heathens, etc. there are on this planet so I think it’s finally high time we get some real numbers. There is strength in numbers and there is safety in numbers. I propose that we come out of the proverbial broom closet and make ourselves known…. Now I also know that for many of you, this may mean the end of your job, your relationship, even saying goodbye to family HOWEVER we’re looking for a major release of stress. It’s time to make ourselves known and to come together as a community. Prove we are not Satanist and Baby Killers or Molesters. The more of us that do this, the better our future becomes. WE are tired of being abused, being shunned, it’s time to stand up for our rights with perfect love to all of our haters. I truly believe that the many faces of paganism adds up to being the third or fourth largest religious movement on the planet. Please help and prove me right. It’s time we move on. It’s time we stop living in fear. Join us on this day. We are police, lawyers, doctors, firemen and women. We fight for our country! We are active Democrats AND even Republicans. We are scientists…. WE ARE PEOPLE! We have rights and it’s time we invoke them. Carpe Diem!”
