Nazi Propaganda rag the Daily Mail has published a highly offensive article about Druidry being classed as a religion by the UK Charity Commission. I was going to lay into its author about her grasp of theological concepts, but I perceived the tone of the article to be of such moronic stupidity that I am not going to bother.
Instead – I note that a load of Druids have started a petition to demand an apology from the Daily Mail. I have signed it, and I cheerfully invite all my readers to do likewise. Please click here.
Druids: Melanie Philips has had a great idea!
All those pagans have been bashing Melanie Philips of the Daily Mail for writing a bigoted ill-researched piece of drivel about Druidry last week, but the fact is that she actually came with a good idea amongst her nonsensical ramblings.
I refer to her suggestion of having “Stones of Praise” as a Television programme.
Just imagine – in all seriousness – what such a programme would involve. It would be half an hour of a load of pagans having a good old sing-song, intercut with short interviews of individual pagans showing what they get up to in their daily lives, the kind of work they get up to, etc. We could have featured guest musicians in each programme, such as Julian Cope, Ian Read, Damh The Bard, etc.
I think this would actually be quite fun! Quick – call the BBC! 🙂
