Paganism Remains Alive and Well

It's that time of year again. Every time we reach the summer solstice, winter solstice, spring equinox, or autumn equinox the pagans come out of the woodwork to celebrate a little louder.

Since today is June 21, which is the longest day of the year and the first day of summer, that means pagans have made their annual pilgrimage to Stonehenge in England. Stonehenge is an ancient site of ritual worship by druids, who were simply British pagans.

Some of today's English seem to revel in the idea of reviving paganism as something England can be proud of, as a sort of cultural heritage. This is just further evidence that many people today don't think it matters what you believe, as long as you believe in something spiritual.
