Rolling Stone just put out an article about the storming of the Capital on Wednesday. They flat out said that Heathenry was code for white supremacy. They are damning an entire religion without knowing what the hell they’re talking about. This is the worst sort of journalism (if one can even call it that). Note, they don’t bother calling out Christianity, despite the numerous crosses in clear view at the riot.
This is what we are now facing.
Speak out. Wear your sacred symbols proudly (mjolnir, valknot, etc.). Do not let ignorant, prejudicial bullshit drive you into a religious closet. Don’t let anyone or anything make you ashamed of your traditions, your Gods, your ancestor practice. These are good and holy things. Our religion is NOT a religion of white supremacy. It’s a religion of family, community, piety, reverence. It’s a religion that anyone can practice if they have reverence for our Gods.
EDIT as of Jan. 10: Rolling Stone issued a piss poor correction of the problematic text. It’s not great, but it’s something.
