what is it with conservative news sources making the things they oppose sound insanley attractive and cool.
why yes, i do wish to join in the the psychedelic rave nature cult to save the earth
@solarbear w h a aaaaat
@solarbear the "confessing sins" and "purified teen saints" stuff is uhh. not pagan
@solarbear I know you know this, and I know the federalist knows this, and I know it's pointless to accuse disingenuous people of being disingenuous, but sometimes I just gotta type this shit out
@aeonofdiscord i can imagine a case for "purified teen saints" (cf. vestal virgins, etc. maybe?, some possible interpretations of the rite of moloch) but i can't think of any pre-christian precedent for the confessional referred to here that would be recognizable as such
@solarbear no clue what "confessing sins in pagan animism" could even mean
@solarbear when i was a kid, i read in a conservative Catholic newspaper that homosexually was so rampant in rural Kansas that teens were only allowed in school bathrooms one at a time.
I desperately wished i lived in rural Kansas. Instead of 80km south of San Francisco. 🙄
@solarbear yeah I mean sure if changing our religious hegemony is likely to result in behaviours that save the planet then I guess that's cool
cw for my timeline; conservative news sources, drugs, climate things
@solarbear aight but why use greta thunberg as a thumbnail for this
i don't even think she's pagan nor has interest in drugs
also why can't pagans be interested in a greater cause is my other question here? and.. "climate worship"? because people actually want to preserve the climate so we can live??
their wording on this makes me question what kind of reality they think they're living in, holy shit
@solarbear Whoever wrote this should get a job cheering leftists up, that's beautiful.
Sign me the f up
@solarbear holy shit, the full article is fucking wild and ends with a claim that we've failed Emperor Constantine and the "barbarians" are at the gates again.
@solarbear remember, kids, twerking brought down the Roman empire!
@solarbear is this Midsommar
