The United Pagan Front

From today's Guardian:

Pagans may be more visible now, but where's the evidence that "Everyone's a pagan now" apart from "there are said to be more than a quarter of a million"? I'll believe in the resergence of this religion when I hear of the first schism.
John Davies

Obviously he's never heard of Bitchcraft and Bicca.

Bitchcraft & Bicca? So the pagans are a fractious lot with all the personality politics of the Medicis?

Pretty much. They haven't really established much dogma so there's a lot of jockeying for position. There are loose umbrella organisations such as the Pagan Federation, the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids and the Children of Artemis but these hide a multitude of covens, circles, groves and solitary practitioners.

At least atheists can agree on one thing.

We did hear of an ugly putsch among the Maryland Fairies -- does that count?
