Great article explaining some of the defining aspects of paganism:
“We can’t move furniture with our minds, we can’t change into wolves, we can’t change our eye color,” Harvilak enumerated with a roll of her eyes. “Hollywood is our biggest enemy.”
A broad belief system
Ask 10 different pagans for the tenants of their religion, and you’re likely to get 10 different answers.
In the broadest sense of the term, a pagan is anyone who worships in a religion other than Christianity, Judaism or Islam. This includes a variety of spiritual paths such as Wicca, Druidism, Neo-paganism and Norse religions. Most pagan faiths are based on beliefs, deities and symbols taken from ancient religions and most emphasize harmony with the Earth and its seasonal cycles.
