Pagan Pride

By Diogenes (bio - articles ) | Sep 18, 2007

Possibly you missed the celebration of Pagan Pride Day, held last Sunday in North Andover, Massachusetts-- which, in case you were wondering, is less than 20 miles from Salem, the town that will begin going berserk in just a few weeks, as Halloween approaches.

Fortunately the Boston Globe had a reporter at the event. (Somehow you knew that the Globe editorial staff would be informed about pagan celebrations, didn't you?) So you can get a sense of the celebration, even from afar. All great fun, you know, and really nothing for other people to worry about. One entrepreneur, selling wooden wands, explained:

Pagans use wands, he said, "the way a Catholic would use rosary beads."

Not exactly, pal. Not exactly.

    And just what do they have to be proud about?

    Pagan pride, gay pride. What's next? Happy to see there isn't a deficit of self-esteem among those whose lifestyles are in contradiction to revealed truth.
