New Yorkers Against Religion-Based Bigotry:
Committee for Dialogue Amongst the Bugaboos of the Religious Right Wing
Dialogue Between Pagan Witches and Satanists
Our first Dialogue Between Pagan Witches and Satanists will be held on Thursday, May 14, 2009, at 7:30 PM. Please see details and RSVP here on the Meetup site.
Modern Pagans and Satanists both are very misunderstood by the general public and hated by the religious right wing.
Pagans often talk about Satanism, out of a perceived need to distinguish themselves from Satanists. But most Pagans don’t know much about Satanism (of which there are many different kinds) and often misrepresent it. As a result, there has been much hostility between Pagans and Satanists.
If you're a Pagan: Learn about the real differences – and similarities – which will surprise many Pagans. (For some preliminary information, see What is Satanism? and Diane Vera's Theistic Satanism site, especially the section To Wiccans and other Pagans and occultists.)
If you're a Satanist: It is very important for Satanists, of all kinds, to reach out to and be better understood by the Pagan community, because (1) there are many closet Satanists in the Pagan community and (2) we need alliances against our common enemy, the Christian religious right wing.
Please attend our informal dinner meeting on Thursday, May 14, 2009, at 7:30 PM. Please see details and RSVP here on the Meetup site.
