If it isn’t deity-centric, it isn’t Pagan.

From Galina Krasskova:

My polytheism, as I believe devotional polytheism by its very nature should be, is very, very Deity centric. I honor and serve the Gods because it is the right and proper thing to do as an intelligent, responsible adult. While my practice is in part about building community, that community is one centered in devotion to the Holy Powers. That is the only community in which I am interested. I would go so far as to say Paganism that isn’t Deity centric isn’t Pagan. It might be fun. It might be a intellectually entertaining. It might be a nice, accepting social gathering. It’s not, however anything approaching polytheistic spirituality.

Amen sister!  Community-centered “Paganism” is not Paganism.  Self-centered “Paganism” is not Paganism.  Earth-centered “Paganism” is not Paganism.  It’s simple.  No gods, no Paganism.

“If evil though knowest, then proclaim it to all as evil, and make no friendship with foes.” — Havamal
