It does seem that modern heathens are more exclusive theologically than our ancestors would have been. I don't know whether that's a good or bad thing, personally I just do what I think is right.

If Christianity was introduced freely into Europe rather than being forced, I could see Jesus being adopted into the family of the Æsir or Vanir. Either that or his traits being taken on by an already existing god. If they had heard of the Buddha, he would probably have been worshipped alongside Freyr or Thor as well. Maybe.

For myself, I worship the Ases and Vans exclusively. I don't include foreign gods, but don't look down on others who do.

According to Churchill, Ivar the Boneless lived as a Pagan and died as a Christian.
