    There is no need for a "sacred language" in Heathenry. I think people are being a little confused about why "sacred languages" are used in some religions. It's not just because it's cool to have a...

    No. She speaks like an atheist who is anti-Christian and enjoys the old mythology and culture, which is great but not exactly heathen.

    This is true. Catholicism would not be what it is today without the various European pre-Christian beliefs that have been syncretized and absorbed into it.

    lol. I didn't mean that its origin was German, just that it is a word in the German language. It's a German word, and an English word. Just like Nacional is a Spanish word.

    Nazi is simply short for National Socialist.

    National is a German word, just the same as the English. However, it is not pronounced the same. National sounds like "Nah-tsee-oh-nahl" in German.
