My latest “Queer I Stand” column at Patheos.com just went up today; I had hoped it would go up before the end of December, but alas, it didn’t. (The people who run the site take a vacation due to religious holidays in late December. What a weird thing to do!)
As I wrote about the television show The New Normal a few weeks before, and had done so under the rubric of “reincarnation,” now I’ve actually directly dealt with the question of reincarnation, one of the few things found in modern pagan and polytheist religiosity that is, most certainly, a belief more than it is a practice (and often one not based on experience), and thus an oddity of sorts within a religion that tends to be more practical and experiential and which is generally opposed to (or at least skeptical of) creedal religious formulations, no matter how formal or informal they might be. Here’s the link to the column.
I’d be interested in your thoughts on the matter, which you can post in comments there, or here, as you would prefer!
