Common Misconceptions about Paganism
- Pagans are Devil Worshippers
- FACT: Pagans do not believe in the Devil. The devil is largely a Christian concept and since Pagans are not Christians, the devil holds no place in Paganism..
- Pagans are not religious
- FACT: Pagan religions are just that, religions. They involve worshipping Deities, codes of ethics, celebration of holidays, and a belief in an afterlife. Many Pagans are very spiritual people.
- Pagans make animal sacrifices
- FACT: Pagans do not make animal sacrifices, in fact many Pagans are vegetarians. Because Paganism is based upon a love and respect for nature, even the thought of animal sacrifices is repulsive to us.
