And people wonder why NY has a bullseye on it?

You know, I am continually flabbergasted by New York. As I keep telling my oath-sister, I think by now (and the numerous bomb threats, and actual bombs, and terrorist attacks she has witnessed and been involved with) that you should just give up on NYC as a lost cause.

Icing to this apple fruit cake, is the NY "heathen" community. Excuse me, what freaking HEATHEN community? With the exception of my oath-sister and a handful of other heathens, the heathen community are wiccans, with no concept of heathenry. Hell I know for a fact at one of those troth moots, some dick was hitting/groping/lying on the women and relations with specific women, and it was tolerated. The hosts in charge didn't throw the idiot out ass first onto the pavement. Didn't try to shove a molotov cocktail, down his throat, so hard the rag was coming out of his ass, which would soon be lit on fire. These people don't even understand the core concept of FRITH, and PROPER action.

But what really irks my ire, into a nice conflagaration of 9-11 bonfire proportions, is that there is to be a "rune" workshop this weekend by Freya Aswynn. My oath-sister, who had already signed up gets contacted and essentially told, you're not wanted, don't come.

Why? Well, supposedly the attendance will dry up if she shows, because she has no problem telling wiccan and other new age dabblers to stop destroying our traditions without any cosideration.

Now, I'm over here thinking, what sort of flaming idiots are handling this workshop? That they would snub the only real heathen in their midst, and an Aeweweard in the Ealdriht?

Did I mention my oath-sister is an Odin's woman, and if there is one thing I know, is that Odin doesn't take kindly to His being snubbed. This is why when one honors Odin, they are to honor Loki as well. All I can say is there's very much a nice Odin painted bullseye on these idiots now.

I'd recommend an evacuation of NYC, and soon. The winds are picking up, and I think Odin is ready for a wild hunt.


My goodness...I couldn't immagine someone being allowed to grope women in public at a heathen gathering around here. I think another thing that may be different with the Heathen as opposed to the Pagan community is kid friendliness, so you're going to have a more conservative gathering as opposed to a hippie free for all.

Hopefully, there can be a better heathen community developing, though I have heard of a few kindreds in the NYC area one of which did the 'new yorkers havamal' variation on the havamal which was really funny. Anyway, good luck to you and your oath sister in handling stuff. :-)
Well even the Troth moot in question isn't really a hippie free for all, it was just no one was willing to do anything about it, or say anything, because it was socially uncomfortable.

Heathens are very much, in your face, you know where you stand with folks usually. ^_^
Not to mention, in no way is the troth community in NYC Heathen. They're, regardless of what they might call themselves WICCAN. You'd be hard pressed to find one that A) adheres to heathen ethics or B) doesn't also belong to a coven. Heathens in the NY Troth: me and Dan O'Halloran. That's IT. And the wiccans, of course, are intimidated by heathen ethics. they're willing to strip mine our sacred traditions but when it comes to actually stepping into the culture and adopting heathen values..well, they can't do that. They don't have the fucking spine.

TD..thank you for your support above. I really appreciate that.
Just you and Danny, huh?

Ah, hey, Conn. :)
I should have amended that to say "Normanii folks" because sometimes you and Lou Thegn also show up. It was nice seeing you at the last one.
