An interesting experiment is going on.
Paganism has been included in an official school religious education syllabus for the first time. Cornwall Council has told its schools that pagan beliefs, which include witchcraft, druidism and the worship of ancient gods such as Thor, should be taught alongside Christianity, Islam and Judaism.
Paganism is cool. I confess I have lots of fun reading about Norse mythology, the lost Slavic pantheon, or some strange Uralic tribes who still keep their ancient faith. The actual documentaries done about their religious practices are in reality quite lame though. Just a bunch of peasants putting on some wooden idols in the forest and cooking a horrid looking stew. But I wouldn't want these people Christianized.
Well it seems that some Cornish officials are set on reviving paganism in their land. I understand their motives, but I'm afraid that Brits don't know what they're doing. Playing with religion must sound fun for atheists, but there's a ton of reasons not to do it. Especially when you have millions of foreigners in your country who take their religion very seriously.
From Ed West:
Islam has made London a more conservative place than it was 50 years ago
He goes on to say how British institutions are introducing alcohol free areas, cutting down in feminism, fag liberation and other cherished British values. I used to hate it when Pat Buchanan defended Muslims as allies because they are social conservatives. Well I don't want them anywhere close. But I'm not sure that making London a more conservative place is a bad thing.
The last time an eclectic society with loose morals had a sizable group of socially conservative sectarians on its midst... well we all know that story.
If any European nation is to fall to Islam, as the doomsayers repeat, have no doubt that Britain will be first. The French like wine and sex too much to succumb to Arab stoicism. But Arab homoerotic customs are something the Brits can easily adapt to.
