Panel Spotlight: When Politics and Faith Mix

Posted on

Taller_Buddha_of_Bamiyan_before_and_after_destructionIn 313 the Roman Emperor Constantine made it legal for Christians to practice their faith openly (gave them property, some tax breaks, other support). Within two generations, they were making laws against practicing non-Christian religion. Traditionally Muslims allowed people of many faiths to practice, but taxed them differently according to which faith they followed, but the DAESH are destroying ancient temples because they represent the power of non Islamic faith. Some people still argue that the USA was created as a Christian nation, and our laws should be based upon Biblical laws. Historically, when one leaders with strong religious convictions have power- from Ahkenaten to Bloody Mary, it does not go well for those who follow other faiths. How much do people need to worry about this in the modern world? Pagan parents who come to a custody battle before a judge who thinks pagans are evil might argue it’s a problem. How big are the risks and what can we do to minimize them?

Speaker Spotlight: Stone Riley

Posted on Updated on

stone rileyStone Riley is a modern renaissance man. He’s an artist, a philosopher, a story teller, an activist, a diviner,… he uses a paint brush or his voice or a computer whichever seems to be needed at the moment- or in combination.

Well known in New England pagan circles, he works for ecology, for fairness, for beauty, for everyone together and the planet we live on, and for the individuals in the planet.

He has created two wildly different sets of tarot cards, many pieces of art, has told stories to help us understand life, and at Changing Times- Changing Worlds he’ll be talking about Creating A Meaningful Life with Tarot. Because once you embrace getting old, you can embrace the idea that your life is your greatest creation.

M Cassius Julianus on the New Normal October 7th

Posted on Updated on

cyril_julianThe Julian Society is a modern pagan group started by Marcus Cassius Julianus to honour the Emperor Julian the Blessed’s vision of a world where all faiths were accepted. (He is known as the last pagan Emperor of Rome.) In a world where the DAESH can openly tear down and destroy the artworks of ancient civilizations because they represent alternative religions- even though they are long dead; and even in the USA people can attempt to make the law be based on their personal religious beliefs, we need the vision and philosophy of Julian more than ever.
Please join Tchipakkan and Marcus (aka Will Bradford) as they discuss religious diversity and tolerance in both the ancient and modern worlds.CIV-Marcus_Cassius_Iulianus
To get a preview of the discussion, here’s an essay M Cassius posted on the Julian Society yahoo group after the destruction of the Temple of Bel:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/JulianSociety/conversations/messages/6379

“The Julian Society is a religious order dedicated to the restoration of Paganism as a respected major world sprituality. Our efforts are inspired by the works of the Emperor Julian, the last Pagan emperor of Rome, who reigned as Caesar of the Western Empire from 355-360 BC, and then as Augustus of the full Roman Empire from 360-363 AD.
During his lifetime the Emperor Julian worked to restore paganism to it’s traditional status. He rebuilt temples to the Gods, reformed the pagan priesthoods, restored traditional rites and created new ones, and championed pagan spirituality in writing, debate and through philosophy.”
