Pagans Are back And The North Is Magic|
Suddenly paganism is back in fashion. But what do these ancient, nature worshipping belief systems have to offer people in modern society? Well maybe it's the nudity and sex. Or maybe there is a bit more to it all.

What A Pagan Believes
So many people misunderstand what it means to be pagan, some deliberately because they are determined to decry every faith, religion or belief system except their own, some because their only information on pagan beliefs come from films like The Wicker Man and some because they like the idea of being slightly sinister and edgy. They are all wrong of course. So what does a pagan believe.

The Tale Of The Easter Bunny
Greenteeth is a rather irreligious organisation, we believe that gods, like laws are created by humans and only nature can reveal the truth. Having said that, there are many ways to the truth and we would not deny that Christianity, Islam, Judaeism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism and all the other religions, one stripped of dogma to offer something to people whose personalities incline them towards ritual...
Not long ago a news item appeared about the removal of the Easter Bunny from schools and public buildings as it may offend non - Christians. There were the usual blustering about political correctness gone mad and some preachers ranted about how the authorities are biased against Christianity and are trying to meddle with the most sacred Christian festival.

CUTTING CHRISTIANITY DOWN TO SIZE.
The REAL Tale of the Easter Bunny
Many Chistian writers have, in response to the resurgence of paganism, claimed that though the origins of Christmas, Whitsun, Halloween, Mardi Gras and Harvest Festival can be linbked to pagan festivities at the same time of year, Easter is truly and uniquely Christian. They are wrong of course, the festival of Oestara, Goddess of the Rising Corn is probably the most pagan of the whole lot. Here Ian Thorpe explains the symbolism of the Easter symbols, eggs, bunnies, crucifixes and the rest.

Talents for Motivation
(Parable of the Talents retold)
The Parable of The Talents in the New Testament is usually interpreted as an exhortation to work hard abd be thrifty. But most of The Bible's parables have their counterpart in the pagan traditions of Africa, Asia, Europe and India and when read in conjunction with those traditional morality tales, The Talents takes on a rather different aspect.
