What one thing would most pagans probably want the world to know
The answer included here comes from Margot Adler's excellent book
Drawing Down the Moon: Witches, Druids, Goddess-Worshippers and Other
Pagans in America Today (the revised edition). If after reading this
FAQ, you want to learn even more about modern paganism, we highly
recommend this book. It is available in most bookstores and in many
"We are not evil. We don't harm or seduce people. We are not
dangerous. We are ordinary people like you. We have families, jobs,
hopes, and dreams. We are not a cult. This religion is not a joke.
We are not what you think we are from looking at T.V. We are real.
We laugh, we cry. We are serious. We have a sense of humor. You
don't have to be afraid of us. We don't want to convert you. And
please don't try to convert us. Just give us the same right we give
you -- to live in peace. We are much more similar to you than you
