Woohoo! Pagan Pride Day. Sign me up. Why don't they have Pagan Pride Day in LA? I would so go (wait... They had one). Not that I'm a Wiccan or anything even remotely similar. Being around Wiccan's is like hanging out with the people who run Renaissance Fair. The have all kinds of unusual things to see and do, and most of the people are interesting characters I would have fun just taking pictures.
Jacksonville has all the fun.
Statistics are hard to come by, but many pagans - adherents of modern or ancient forms of nature-based spirituality - are becoming more organized.
Jacksonville resident, college student, mom and pagan Elizabeth Ziemba said the trend derives from a need for the strength that comes in numbers.
"It's so ... we can have equality in society and have our religion recognized legally," Ziemba said.
One step in that direction is being taken today, when pagans of all varieties convene for Pagan Pride Day 2007 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Jacksonville.
The answer to this question made me laugh. How did you become a pagan?
I was raised Southern Baptist and I went to a Catholic high school. So in my teens, I saw hypocrisy between those two faiths. ... I really started searching for something that felt more comfortable.
So... what? You just kind of made something up?
