Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

On Pagan Rights

This is a page from the third version of Technopagan Yearnings. There are some formatting differences. Originally published at www.neowayland.com/C65989237/E20100729122351


You don't have any.

You also don't have any rights because you happen to be black, lesbian or left-handed.

People have rights. Those rights are worth defending.

Individuals have rights. Groups have power plays.

The instant a right ceases to apply to everyone is the instant it becomes privilege.

No one "deserves" privileges.

Every responsible human deserves rights.

If someone is denying rights because you or someone you know is Pagan, they aren't denying your Pagan rights because you don't haven any. They are denying your human rights.

I'll fight for human rights.
