    I hope they aren't trying to standardize it. I expect that was either a typo or a misunderstanding. We typically avoid orthodoxy. There are a lot of traits we pagans mostly have in common, but some serious philosophical debates have raged for some time regarding setting firm boundaries for what is/is not Pagan and the result is almost invariably that we don't need or want standardization. That said, Pagan festivals and Pagan outreach are good things and we do share enough in common to put a coherent and firm face forward while still allowing for theological flexibility.

    It is always risky to try to speak for all Pagans, or all Wiccans, for that matter. We are such an independent lot. As they say ask five Wiccans a question and you get at least seven answers. As long as what I do do not interfere with your right to do it your way and in reverse, we are pretty much live and let live, at least the most of us.

      Hey, my name is shantel Collins. I am the one interviewed for the paper. ( my name was spelled wrong). I am in no way trying to speak for all pagans. We are all individuals. I can't be held responsible for the way the reporter interpreted things. I can only speak for what I am quoted on. My temple is trying to dispel stereotypes and give Wicca a good name. We are not trying to say all wiccans are the same or speak for everyone. Our temple didint mean for it to come across that way. We didnt see a copy of the report before it went out, so the reporters comments are hers alone. I only take credit for the lines in quotations. We are trying to provide as many religious services as possible and help people. But we are not trying to standardize it in one way for everyone. We can only speak for ourselves and our temple, while trying to help our community
