    Why would a black man join the Troth? What is even more perplexing why would the Troth let a black man join?

    I get cautious when a organization makes me pay money to join.
    What does not kill me, makes me stronger- Friedrich Nietzsche Twilight of the Idols 1888

    It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong- Voltaire

    Government can easily exist without laws, but law cannot exist without government- Bertrand Russell

    Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born- Ronald Reagan

    America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up- Oscar Wilde

    ROFL!!!!!! I've been to those gatherings (we all have to start somewhere) and to hear them called racist and homophobic is one of the funniest things I've ever heard! To be fair to the troth most of the people there are not Troth members (not that that says anything good about either -but a few of those people don't look as bad as those pics, though some look worse!) and the mentioned John Post is a double talking liar and thief who had them fooled (if he is racist or racialist or universalist or not depends on which side of his mouth he is talking out of). I finally stopped going (I went for awhile even after I started to change because I'm a social creature that craves community and there are a few people there who stick to the fringes more and are at least pleasant people to be around -and my change was gradual) when many "pillars" of that community refused to even listen when I tried to tell them he was a pariah, those backstabbing, drama hungry, gossip hounds wouldn't even hear me and kept welcoming him. That's what I get for being honest, sticking to my principles, and not being a fawning sycophanteyes: I really miss doing religious community things but I'd rather wait for a real community not that loser version, one where I don't have to silently tolerate so very much I don't like and keep my mouth shut about so much of what I think because it wouldn't be tolerated at all. There were individuals I could carefully talk to (while looking around to make sure the wrong people were not there) about certain things but though I like being circumspect and thinking before I speak, and have no desire to bray my beliefs out at the top of my lungs, skulking around is not my idea of a great place for me to be. And besides all the fundamental idealogical differences I just didn't want to play the popularity game; who can do the most seidthe, who can talk to the gods the most, who can get "ridden" (when a god 'possesses' them -borrowed from voodoo) the most dramatically, who can pander to Diana Paxton the most, who can justify their abnormal behavior best, who can wear the most dramatic outfits(and usually painful to look at, but I guess fat people like to dress up too :runaway ) (I used to enjoy that one except I'd like to think I looked good but that becomes empty when the ugly fat chick (or fag) is getting as much attention if not more because they are more explicitly playing it up and have more gross friends. and when they got all excited when I got a little too heavy :runaway - I was still much smaller than most of them but it was too much for me.) etc. And when I didn't want to play all their psychodrama games and stopped playing up my sexuality they didn't seem to have much use for me. A woman run (mostly), feminist (though they would protest that), 'progressive' democrat (mostly) community that values and panders to the ugly, pathetic, and liars with silver tongues? Yeah, not really the place for me
    The racial thing wasn't as much of an issue because for all their anti-racist panic and reassurances they are mostly white (I'd say at least 98% -many events without non-Caucasoid representatives at all) and alot of them understand, on some level at least, that it is a blood thing and I think that makes alot of them uneasy because somewhere they know that the anti blather is wrong but they are too steeped in their leftist propaganda and stumbling over themselves to deny any belief that might be held by a "racist" (not that I don't understand wanting to distance oneself from some of the more angry and childish "racists" out there). Taking a stand on the race issue would mean expeling a couple of people who are good, intelligent, and solid (though I wouldn't have them in my family or kindred -I actually discussed that with one of them and she -1/4 german 3/4 hispanic- had no problem with that at all). They won't reject anyone because they are "different" because they all self-identify as "different" and fear being excluded themselves.

    Whew, enough of that rant for now:-) I think I'll go and try to do something constructive now

    Let me quote a few things by Unis in that link posted...I seriously wish I had never read it...

    My girlfriend.. again 100% Russian Jewish
    As for Homophobia... at the last Troth-sponsored event I attended, a marriage was performed between two women, [...] Nearby was another gay couple I've seen at every Troth-sponsored event I've been to here, cuddling with one another during the ceremony. No racism, no nazism, no rabid homophobia was present that I could see.
    I am one of the few Black Asatruars that I know of in the California region.
    I'm certainly bereft of speech. How they can do this in the name of our Gods is beyond my conception - especially when it comes to the fags cuddling up and marrying. Hel, our ancestors condemned it, and doing as much as wearing effeminate clothing as a man/emasculate clothing as a woman was a ground for divorce! :runaway
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Sifsvina--You're describing a cult; wise move to bail out. I see a lot in your post that says they demand subservience and abandoning principles in favor of personality...and when have these been qualities of our way? Your authority in this matter is well appreciated.

    Sig--I'm trusting your judgment and steering clear of reading this junk.

    My sum up: Joining such a 'club' is like joining an open bowling league; the only criteria are paying your own way and wearing the right shoes. What's perverse is that this club isn't a bowling league, it's pretending to be a lifestyle, a faith and stealing the language of my lifestyle, my faith.

    Liars only survive on the energies of those willing to ditch their own principles in favor of the lies; I prefer to let these illegitimates starve. We have survived a thousand years of genocide and the betrayal of usurpers because we do hang to our principles. And so we continue to do so. These buffoons will die out, let's hope sooner rather than later.

    You hit the nail on the head there Sigurd!

    ¨The Trough¨ is definately what they are, they shouldnt even be considered in relation to Folkish Heathens, they fit in the category of UniPagan Wiccans!

    I've dealt with members of the Troth more than I'd like to. It just so happens that in Oklahoma most of the Heathens down here in Oklahoma City are AFA, while most of the "Heathens" up in Tulsa are Troth, and most of them are complete morons. If you've ever met a "Heathen" who says "Our ancestors adopted whoever was worthy regardless of the color of their skin." or "Race is Christian idea used to justify slavery." or "Thor, Odin, Loki, and Freyr were all cross-dressers, so we should be too." then that blasphemous, ignorant piece of shit is probably a loyal member of the Troth. That's not to say that every member of the Troth is this worthless. There was, for a few years, an attempt by Folkish Asatruar to take over the Troth from within (because the Troth lets in anybody), but that didn't work out. Oh well. Atleast now, we can have a good idea of who, claiming to be "Asatru", is an actual Asatruar. If that person is in the Troth, then the answer in most likely "no".

    On a lighter note, I do have one freind in the Troth, whom I consider to be an actual Heathen. I have to introduce him like "This is my friend. He's in the Troth. He's not gay or anything." :haha

    When I was young and dumb I thought the Troth was a good Heathen organization. Now that I saw that picture with a black guy shooting arrows with them makes me think twice.
