Are we talking about pagans, as in (from the christian view) anyone who
didnt follow their religion or another one of the book (such as jews or
muslims)... or are we talking about the horde of insta-pagans who are using
religion to 'rebel' against society.. dont have any actual beliefs which are
close to most 'pagan' religions.. and so just call themselves pagan without
actually knowing anything.
If I were a roman, I would have a "pagan" religion. I would probably
worship a few roman gods. My persona is a Byzantine Arab. I could be
Christian, Muslim, or any host of 'hold over' "pagan" religions.
How do you define a practicing 'pagan', when it really isnt a religion in of
itself. Its a catchall phrase, depending on your orientation.
But, in the end, why does any of this matter at all? Religion, both mundane
and within the society, should be something that is private or at least not
announced to the world. It doesnt matter what faith you follow, or if you
follow any. Research your persona, find out what was done and what is
'common' for what you are playing, and be done with it. Trust me.. no one
is really going to care what religion you follow. We cant burn you for
being 'pagan', the 'church' wont support you for being christian, and there
will be no wars to convert the infadels.
New people have so much more to worry about as opposed to what religion they
follow.. lets get back to that, K?
