Apparently polytheists are not permitted to be angry at attacks on their traditions. If we object when our traditions are attacked, we are “too emotional,” “over-reacting,” and “need to cool off.” This is condescending, demeaning, and most importantly of all a power play. It’s a way of shutting down the conversation and attempting to render us mute. Think about that and think about why.
