Asatru & Racism

I keep up on what's being said about Asatru on the Web, and recently stumbled across a religious Judeo-Christian forum, where they recently posted a thread about Asatru & Odinists, but specifically talking about how the religion was nothing but perpetuated by a bunch of Jew-hating racists.

I took the time to register for the site, and carefully write up a long post, explaining that mainstream Asatru does not equate such messages of hate. I had to break it up across multiple posts, to post. And now I'm awaiting moderator approval for the post. I hope the moderator will authorize the posts, because I think it's an important distinction that needs to be made. I have no problem with them disliking the racists, but they need to understand that mainstream Asatru has nothing to do with the hate-mongerers out there. When I see misunderstandings like this I always take the time to educate. Because I have no desire to ever be lumped summed in with the racists, thank you very much. And I'm sure I'm not the only one out there who has no desire to be linked to Neo-Nazi thugs that don't even truly honor or respect the Aesir.

So here's hoping the moderator will allow those posts to in fact be posted.
