as someone who is both in the SCA and a Pagan -- I've seen more than a
few "SCAdia-Pagans" that just absolutely make my teeth hurt.
Oddly enough, this topic has also come up on one of the Wiccan mailing
lists that I'm on -- with the general agreement that the SCA is fine, and
Neo-Paganism is fine -- the problem occurs when someone tries to blend
the two areas together. And it's mostly from the crowd that's absolutely
convinced that Wicca goes "in an unbroken line back to the Stone-Age," or
the Anglo-Normans, or what have you.

I don't have a Muslim persona, but no one will know who it is, they'll just
hear it ringing out. I hope to create "magic moments" for people by doing
that, especially the Muslim personae who just might follow the summons and
kneel to face Mecca in prayer.
