Bryan McManus replied to Sydney B's discussion Christian to Pagan to Atheist - do you see...? in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"Of course broad-brush black-and-white statements like that are silly and reactionary. There is no one person, thing, organization or cult "to blame for all the worlds problems."   My opinion on religion is No Thanks and my political…"

Bryan McManus replied to New Atheist's discussion An atheist's history of paganism? in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"http://www.geraldgardner.com/   Gerald Gardner is considered by many to be the father of modern paganism, more specifically that of wicca. As a former pagan, I found that many in the pagan community pulled bits and pieces from many if not all…"

Bryan McManus replied to suzanne Buzz's discussion Selling all your pagan/wicca items experiences. in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"As liberating as becoming atheist can be, I myself haven't sold or distanced myself from any of my pagan paraphernalia. Perhaps because I was at odds to completely accept the mythology on faith, I don't actually have much of it. My…"

Bryan McManus replied to Sarah Walton's discussion A Former Neo-Pagan Reflects on the Autumnal Equinox in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"Hi Sarah, Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this subject. It's a good topic and I'll bite. In retrospect, I thought a lot of the same things of myself regarding my own involvement with paganism. I tried real hard to believe in all of…"

Bryan McManus replied to Loki's discussion How did the Neo-Pagan communtiy react when you proclaimed your athiesim? in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"I wasn't into dripping with silver jewelry and doing a Stevie Nicks imitation because I've always been fairly "butch". But yet... I know what you mean. Funny you say that because one of the things we used to laugh about were the…"

Bryan McManus replied to Loki's discussion How did the Neo-Pagan communtiy react when you proclaimed your athiesim? in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"OOps. I realized I didn't answer the thread's ultimate question. I haven't mentioned it to any of them but I think they see the change. We don't talk much anyhow."

Bryan McManus replied to Loki's discussion How did the Neo-Pagan communtiy react when you proclaimed your athiesim? in the group Ex-Wiccans and Pagans.
"Yes! It is. What turned me off to it was my noticing that people are capable of treating each other very poorly and with great disrespect regardless of their belief system. For many people I have met, being Pagan was like joining a different kind of…"

Bryan McManus replied to Dre Smith's discussion Create a Quote (Pro-Atheism, Anti-Theism, or Maxim)
"I used to believe in reincarnation and many who believe in it would say that all the extinct species also have spirit and have been "promoted" to a higher plane. Just goes to show that even pagans can generate more complex plot twists to…"
