American Heathenry Strikes Again >_<
So about ten minutes ago I just found out about this: Icelandic Asatrufelagid receiving hate mail. YOu know who they’re receiving hate mail from? American Heathens. Yes, you read that correctly. American Heathens are sending hate mail to the Icelandic Asatru association, the one that’s building a Heathen temple, because they’re not anti-gay.
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?
and by ‘you people,’ i mean the American Heathens who can’t get their heads out of their collective asses long enough to *think*. I know American Heathenry is massively fucked up but this really takes the cake. Apparently, our community can’t comprehend the fact that fundamentalist Christian “morality” has no place in Heathenry. When I talk about how ashamed I am of American Heathenry, it’s shit like this to which I am referring (this and the hostility toward devotion, the lack of reverence for the Gods, and the ongoing attempts to cull anything approaching Mystery out of the religion).
As a result, the Icelandic organization is seriously considering whether or not to limit access to the temple for foreign Heathens and frankly, I don’t blame them. This is why we can’t have nice things, folks. American Heathenry: a morass of shit and in good old american exceptionalist fashion, we’re trying to export it. Doesn’t it just make you proud? *sarcasm*.
