Ask A Pagan: Multiple Deities

Could you work with both Zeus and Thor?

Thank you for your question. Short answer: many Pagans would say, “Yes.”

Many Pagans are polytheistic. Some polytheistic Pagans work with or worship deities from a single Pagan tradition, but most Pagans do not follow a specific tradition. Instead, most Pagans are what we call eclectic Pagans or Pagan solitaires, who either blend different Pagan traditions or create their own.

Some polytheistic Pagans might primarily work with one deity, their patron deity, and work with other deities to a lesser extent. A patron deity is not required, so feel free to work equally with more than one deity.

However, some Pagans believe that certain deities don’t want an individual working with both of them, but they would let you know if they did not.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Blessed Be.

Gay pride flags should not be banned in classrooms

I agree that in general, classrooms shouldn't be a place to push a particular political ideology or campaign. However, simply being gay in school isn't a political campaign. It's a recognition that a teacher's classroom is a safe place for gay kids. If that's political to you, even if the teacher never once mentions a political candidate, you've probably got a problem with the existence of the gay kids.
