Well, a lot has happened this weekend which has me questioning whether a “Pagan community” actually exists. Can we claim that we are a community? Does this community only exist online, or are there real-world communities as well? I read a number of opinions recently that seem to be saying we can’t call ourselves a community, or that Pagans as a general whole are not a community at all. These opinions seem to imply that the subsets of Paganism may have some kind of community–such as a Wiccan community, an Asatru community, a Druidic community, etc.–but that a general, umbrella-term Pagan community does not in fact exist.
What do you think? Is there a Pagan community? Is it only online or does it have a mirror in the real world as well?
