The fall of the witch hunter

I read a few Wiccan blogs, just like a read few Christian and Islamic blogs. There are a few voices out there who are authentic and if I give them a chance, influence the way I think about the faithful. The Wild Hunt is a one of these blogs.

Since launching “The Wild Hunt” in 2004, Jason Pitzl-Waters has become one of the leading voices for analysis and insight into how modern Pagan faiths are represented within the mainstream media. In addition, “The Wild Hunt” has also conducted in-depth interviews with prominent figures within modern Paganism, academia, and religion journalism. Jason wants to raise the level of discourse and journalism on important issues within the modern Pagan and Heathen communities, while advocating a broader commitment to encouraging religious multiplicity and solidarity (where appropriate) with surviving indigenous and non-monotheistic faith groups.

The wild hunt posted an article about a witch hating youth pastor named Andrew L. Thomas. He’s on trial for allegedly raping a 16-year-old boy.

For while Thomas was allegedly abusing young boys, he was also leading an anti-Pagan crusade in order to drive Witch School out of Rossville, Illinois.

Drop in and give it a read.
