To "Pagan" or not to "Pagan": That is the Question.

An interesting blog entry:

Kna’ani: Impressions of Tess Dawson, a Canaanite Polytheist.

I wonder if the various polytheist / reconstructionist religions should perhaps build on overall identity, instead of identifying ourselves as Pagans.

I especially notice this issue on The Cauldron. Their Reformed Kemeticism SIG is a great resource, but you can tell on the board that Wiccans rule the roost on the general site. It can be amusing, especially on the subject of “Magick” It’s often assumed that everyone works within the “Rule of Three“, or other Wiccan traditions, and the recon folks will laugh and say “Nope! My Gods don’t work that way!”

It looks like our fellow Polytheists deal with a lot of the same issues, and we should definitely keep track of each other.

What do you think? Do you find a stronger connection to other recon traditions than you do to general “Paganism?” Could we hold “Polytheist Pride Day?”
