        keen. I think Aidan Kelly mentioned this in his analysis of the
        sourcing of Gardner (grimoires, Crowley text, unattributed?).

        many neuvoreligious imperatives emerge on the fly. not all take
        the time or have the chutzpah to fabricate a Fraulein Sprengel,
        rip off an African-American sex magician, side-swipe a Christian
        mass turning it into a Black Mass, or grandfather in the whole
        of the Great White Brotherhood without any physical connection.

        since much was wiped out by Christians and then slammed as
        'pagan', it is not only expectable but understandable that
        modern "Neopagans" would simultaneously forget about the
        actualities of their worship and deities, then take on the
        mantle of 'Bumpkin' to wave in the face of Christian rivals.

        the "divide" between "CMs" and "Neopagans" is fatuous and
        based on the most ridiculous of discernments.
