Most modern religions incorporate some tenets of ancient paganism. Respect for animals and the natural world… Okay, in this regard the pagans were way ahead. Standards of cleanliness, deportment, minding one’s own business… Now, they could teach us a thing or two they are as well. Of course, some pagans committed horrific acts of savagery in the name of their beliefs. Name me one Jewish or Christian sect with that magnet and its past… Oops! I should say, show me one without it. (In the case of Islam, one has only to look back as far as this morning.) The Point: we need to start attending our own garden.
