What’s a Pagan?

April 9th, 2008

An actual conversation between me and the weekend girls. They’re the only reason I agreed to work the weekends at all… Besides Master saying I could, of course. lol

“I could have been an ass and said that since I don’t celebrate Easter, per se, I refuse to cook Easter dinner. I could have called it “religious oppression” and demanded they get a Christian cook in here for Easter dinner. Namely, Jolyssa”

“Wait. You’re not Christian?”

“No.”

“How can you not be Christian?”

“Are you serious? Is she serious?”

Silence.

“I don’t believe in your god therefore I am not Christian.”

“What are you?”

“I’m Pagan.”

“What’s a pagan?”

“Are you serious? She’s serious, isn’t she?”

“Uh-huh.”

“How can someone as smart as you be so stupid?”

“What’s a pagan?”

“Pagans believe in more than one deity. We don’t believe someone died on a cross for our sins. Most of us would be afraid of the repercussions. We believe that what we do in our life comes back to us.”

More after the jump…

“Karma?”

“You know what karma is but you don’t know what Paganism is? Nevermind. We celebrate the earth and its gifts. We celebrate each other. There are so many different types of Paganism.”

“So you’re atheist.”

“Uhm. No. Atheists don’t believe in God. Er…”

“Exactly.”

“I mean they don’t believe in any god. They don’t believe that there is anything up there or in the mountains or any where watching us, spiritual or otherwise. Atheists don’t believe in any of the various deities people choose to believe in. I believe in many. Just not yours. Therefore I cannot, by definition of the word, be atheist.”

“Whatever. You’re atheist.”

“She’s really serious!”

“You’re going to Hell.”

“No I’m not.”

“Yes you are. You’re an atheist.”

“I’m not… Would you tell her I’m not an atheist?”

“Don’t look at me, dude.”

“You don’t believe in God, right?”

“Right.”

“And atheists don’t believe in God, right?”

“You’re twisting the definition.”

“You’re going to Hell.”

“Okay. Well, I hope there’s lots of people like you in Hell.”

“Thank you. Why?”

“Cause if I’m already in Hell that means I can’t get in any more trouble.”
