definitions of pagan and neo-pagan are going to differ (the Catholics have
one definition of pagan, and the Wiccans have another, etc.). The Ontario
Consultants on Religious Tolerance have a couple of good discussions of the
topic at http://www.religioustolerance.org/paganism.htm and
http://www.religioustolerance.org/neo_paga.htm , and also make a distinction
between pagan and heathen. Personally, I see Heiðni under their third
definition of Pagan, myself. </thread>
