Thank you for defending me. However, I did not take any offense at Juniper giving me a link to a decent Asatru forum. I went and checked it out - lots of good resources for study.

Though I will admit such a link was uncharacteristic for such a thread. But it's all good.

Heathens who follow only one pantheon sometimes do take offense at someone like me who follows more gods than just the Norse ones. I can understand why they do, but I feel many of them are overreacting. After all I've never experienced any of the gods I follow or have honored to tell me "don't follow x god" or "x pantheon". In my view, the gods of different pantheons get along, because they have evolved past the need for such petty disagreements.

That doesn't mean they like/love each other. Some pantheons can't stand each other. I heard of someone who had statues of a hindu god and a greek goddess. And he/she said one day they had the distinct inpression that the greek goddess said she didn't like the hindu god, and that she felt it was not proper to have the hindu god on the same altar.

But that was quite a strange story. I might have to google it sometime and see if I can find a link. :)

One more thing, Absent. In my view Juniper was being nice by sending me a link. Juniper and I don't usually get along real well, so I was glad to see him/her being nice. :)

And Juniper - no offense meant by "him/her". I just don't know if you're male or female based on your profile. :)

 
No problem...and I'm female.

I don't take anything I say to you or you to me that seriously...This is going to sound weird as f**k, but after I called you out about the Odin oath thing and the flip-flopping the thought entered my mind afterwards that maybe someone is paying more attention to you than you think. Because, literally, I randomly stumbled across your post and that other forum. Out of the whole wide internet, there's Outlaw393, going on about Odin still and feeling neglected. Weird. Or maybe I'm weird, heh.

So the idea to link you to AL pops in my mind? *Shrug* Ok, I'll link you to AL. Who knows. ;)

But to have integrity, as you ask- Yes,  I would chuckle a bit if she got called out on something. (It's actually sort of like an initiation process...EVERYONE new to heathenry experiences a culture shock. Those who get past it, stick with it.)  


 
Ok this is where my  confusion kicks in. I wonder why you  would want to give  a link to  a board where someone  might get called out on for  asking  questions or  not knowing everything other  members  know, and admit that you would  chuckle at the person you are providing the link to. If  Heathenry is such  a  culture  shock then it would make more sense for those who  know more about it to  help others  who  do not  know  about it rather than call them out and laugh at them. By the way this is   just  something to ponder   it's not  a  question and really  does not need  an  answer.
Armed with  common sense and worldly ways.......

I'm glad...what a strange...coincidence? I honestly don't believe in coincidences. They happen for a reason. I'm thinking it's probably the Old Man. So he does have my back. Nice to know. :)

LOL you totally just made me laugh! But yeah it's always a good thing to hear that from someone who's more experienced with the Norse gods than I am. Let me know if you notice anything else strange. :)

You're kidding me with this, right?

So...if I see someone interested in heathenry and I give them link- it becomes my ultimate responsibilty to hold their hand and teach them about the board culture- despite the fact they're perfectly capable of reading a board and observing the board culture on their own? That somehow, if they chose to act like an idiot, its my fault- even though they should have some reasoning abilities to make their own choices?

And its wrong of me to laugh when they make the same newbie mistakes we all make- that I even made. Even though they *are* an adult and chose the way they behave and the words they post? Should I warn *everyone* that there are forums on the internet that have different opinions and that those opinions might hurt their feelings?

And *why* am I supposed to care so much and have all this responsibility by posting a link?

I got my own problems, my own kids, and my own deal going on. Go be confused by someone else's humanity. Because im not going out of my way to protect someone from normal human interaction. Outlaw can behave anyway she wants- I didn't raise her.

She may say something stupid and I may laugh.Holy mother of god.
