    You know that you are linking to what seems to be a Wiccan page? A look at the festivals the celebrate reveals to me a combination of Germanic and Celtic festivals. A reference to "Magick"? A book advertised about Sabbats? Whilst the idea of a page dealing with Heathen parenting is per se a good one, and whilst I am sure that your intentions were entirely well-meaning - that link has as much to do with Germanic Heathenry as a bicycle has to do with a pair of glasses. Sorry if that sounds harsh.

    Thread closed.

    Thread re-opened on the popular request that it'd be more beneficial to discuss why or why not this site might be beneficial.

    This is not a site I will use regularly but seems like it might devlop some good articles on parenting. It is not described as heathen so I did not feel overly disapointed. Most religioous non christian/jewish parenting resources are limited.

    Thanks for opening it again.

    The reason why I posted this was because it has some useful links and sources for parents who are pagans. Ignore the rest of the site which is quite Wiccan based. I should've posted this in the Motherhood and Family subforum.

    In my view, Nordic heathen parents should instill in their children great respect for kin, clan and folk, for Nature as the great life-giving force that we humans have almost destroyed, for values like honesty, trustworthiness, hospitality; and a fighting spirit when it concerns any of the above being abused.
    All of these are principles of Asatru and the best thing would be if parents themselves behaved accordingly, thus setting their children real-life examples. Talking about religion and gods should come at a much later stage, not before puberty.
    There should be nothing like the christian indoctrination, that starts right after birth.

    Family Activity for March:
    Support Injured Pagan Veteran Joshua Hoffman

    Joshua and his mother Silverlily are members of the Mecosta, Michigan Pagan community and need your support. No matter how you feel about the war, we need to support our Pagan soldiers.

    On January 6, 2007 Joshua was hit by a sniper bullet to his neck. He has had numerous medical complications and is paralyzed from this attack. He has no use of his legs and his family is praying for use of his arms to return. He is currently very depressed and has a long road to rehabilitation ahead of him. Please add him to your healing lists and send him your cards and letters of support.
    This may be a stupid question but Im going to ask it anyway.
    Exactly who do Pagans/Heathens pray to anyway?

    Oh! BTW Im about 99.99% someone named Joshua Hoffman is Jewish, so that would seem to rule him out as a Pagan.

    Being pagan is not necessarily synonymous with being heathen or folkish. I have known some very German folks with the last name Hoffman and also some very German folks with names like Joshua, Daniel and Benjamin so I do not see how that name rules out him being pagan. I do not recall anyone by the name of Joshua Hoffman.

    I am of the opinion that all wounded vets should be given support from as broad a community as possible. So even if he is ethnically Jewish but wiccan, gardenian etc I am inclined to think good thoughts about him. Runework might be appropriate but I am not knowledgeable about the particulars of this kind of thing. A lot of wiccans do healing prayers or ceremonies for people.

    In any case I think that supporting vets is important as they are our warrior path. I think that the tribal nature of heathenism/Asatru/Odinism supports the ideal of honoring your warriors and those that defend you.Firemen, police and such go in this catagory as well in my family. Although neither my husband or I have been in the military we both have strong family histories of supporting our soldiers/airmen. My father several uncles, both grandfathers and two great grand fathers were war vets and I know that I had at least one ancestor in the civil war and one family line goes back to the Hessians who were here as mercenaries during the revolution.

    Of Course you could be right Ladybright, he could be just a Germanic Guy with a last name of Hoffman and his parents decided to name him Joshua.
    But judging by the area of the country and name, I would bet dollars to donuts he is from a Reform Jewish family.

    Which would also explain the reason if my theory is true, why he is now a Pagan.

    Umm...either way, mind if I wonder whether or not some veteran soldier is Jewish or not has anything to do with Pagan/Heathen parenting? :
