Because it manifests as a rejection of and deliberately distancing from the divine, because it dilutes the identity of paganism as a religious movement, and because self-describing “atheistic pagans” are generally hostile to those of us who actually adhere to something accurately described as a religion, yourself perhaps chief among that crowd.
Also because it’s oxymoronic and contributes to a horrible trend in paganism as a whole of playing fast and loose with terminology and just ignoring what shit actually means. …
I can’t gladly suffer weeds in the garden, foxes in the henhouse, or wolves among the flock. …
I simply regard it as the duty of any person of actual conviction to defend their principles and stand by them adamantly. I can’t view apathy or indiscriminate tolerance as virtues.
Yes! The mere presence of atheists among us weakens our religion. Atheists have no religion. So allowing them to mix with us dilutes the purity of our piety. On top of that, it’s just stupid. Why can’t these fuckheads read a dictionary?!
