Not necessarily. I'd call myself a "pagan" though I haven't assimilated any
set of beliefs, just had experiences. It can be so, however, and especially
with "New-age" stuff, that real or hypothesised non-monotheistic beliefs,
such as druidism, are mined in order to provide a belief system. I have
absolutely no interest in meeting other 'pagans'. As someone said earlier,
one's religion is a personal matter between oneself and 'God'. And that's
the bottom line. I thought the long snippet of fundamentalist Islam was just
a big hoot (in both senses of the word...) Rather than take these people
seriously, have a big laugh at them. They really don't understand laughter.
