Druidry, Paganism, Heathenry

Pretend wiki didn't exist...

If you self-identify* as one, two or three of the above: what do you consider distinguishes these terms and in what manners, if at all, do they overlap? What makes you one and not another? Stuff like that.

* or respectfully interested.

I don't identify as Pagan (though I do identify as pagan ;)), but I used to.

Paganism is an umbrella term for Neo-Pagan religions such as Druidry, Wicca, Asatru, Heathenry, Shamanism, etc. Similar to how Protestants, Methodists, Baptists, Pentecostals, etc. identify as Christian.

Typically, Druids and Heathens identify as Pagan.

I think there's more variance in Druids than many realize.

In my time with OBOD, there were a lot of Pagan Druids. There were also a notable amount of Christian and atheist Druids, and a few Buddhist leaning Druids.

I remember talking with an OBOD member about curiousity on what a Muslim Druid would look like, and I've talked with @The Hammer about how Druidry and Hinduism might look together.

Its really more versatile than many acknowledge.

I was speaking in general terms. There are, of course, exceptions, as there is in practically every religion.
