It's odd, but whenever I post anything related to the subject of Christianity at my own blog, the number of hits and comments--from Pagans--goes way up. Maybe I'm not the only person to have noticed this, because over the last few days, numerous members of the Pagan/Heathen blogosphere have posted entries on the topic of Christo-Paganism and related topics. Some bloggers are concerned, some are puzzled, and some are embracing at least some Christian concepts, if not Christianity, per se.
Generally speaking, a Blog Carnival or a Synchro-blog event, like the Brighid in Cyberspace Poetry Reading described below, is planned in advance. This one, however, seems to be just happening. Recent related posts include:
- Grace at Christine's This Shaking Keeps Me Steady
- What's my Problem with Sharing Craft with Christianity? by Pitch over at Here's the Pitch
- Paganism and the Threat of Assimilation by Pagan author Gus diZerega on his blog
- A Path by any Other Name: The Christo-Pagan Problem at Soul Bites Blog
- What is a Christian? at Quaker Pagan Reflections
- Is Christ Special? at Meadowsweet and Myrrh
- And last (but very much not least) a news round up over on The Wild Hunt Blog that asks the question, Can You Be a Christo-Pagan in Prison?
Why so much interest? Explanations or speculations on the phenomenon are welcome.
