I like to think of myself as a reasonable person, I’m not a far left liberal and try to give others the benefit of the doubt. However the election of a narcissist by an ignorant knuckledragging populace has made me draw the proverbial line in the sand.
Sure he was elected, but that doesn’t make it right. The American people have made bad choices in the past and upheld abhorrent things.

Pagans cannot be complacent now. The evangelical far right have waited for decades for a candidate they could manipulate to do their bidding. For now it’s the denigration of Muslim Americans. However, where will the talk of a Christian nation or restoring christian values ultimately lead? We as pagans will not be immune to their wrath. Left unchecked, this foul, disgusting brand of Christianity now rampant and feeling smug and proud across the United States could threaten us all. For now it is manifesting as Islamophobia, but rest assured they will eventually get around to our communities too.
