Asatru Clergy: Jordsvin's Perspective

This article is a comment to an article published by Garman Lord of Theod in the issue of Marklander Magazine that came out in late September 2001 (#55 = Vol VII, No. 7).  Its editor can be reached here. I encourage folks to subscribe to Marklander!

Asatru, Proto-Religions, and Garman Lord's New Comments

In reference to the Yule 2001 Marklander: Our exchange of letters continues.  Garman tried to clarify things and only managed to stir things up even more.  These are PROBABLY my last comments on the subject.  This article was not published to avoid stirring things up further.  Lavrans eventually ended ties with Garman.

My Take on the "Folkish" Matter

I've gotten a lot of comments on the above article!  I have finally concluded, long after writing this article, that I am roughly classifiable as "Soft Folkish."  That means that I consider ethnic origin a perfectly good reason to choose one Pagan/Heathen religion over another, but do not see it as the only factor.

Other Articles By Jordsvin:

Christianity as an Issue in the Lesbigay/Transgendered Community

And now for something a tad different: a Gay Heathen Godhi = Priest (yours truly) looks at getting along with Gay Christians.

Christianity Not an Unmixed Blessing

I wrote this article in December 1999 in response to an article in the University of Kentucky's student newspaper.  The original article was basically a well-meaning column from a Christian who deplores hatred but who still sees Jesus as the "only way into heaven."  My response is essentially this (gay) Heathen's view of the Christian faith.  I went out of my way to be nice!

Breeding Fancy Guppies

           (Not surprisingly, this Freysgodhi dos a bit of "Urban Farming"!)
