This is from the local Public Radio magazine;

The origin of the word Paganistan, is not what the article claims. It comes much later and was coined by a fellow named Steven Posch. He's a local Pagan HP and story teller.

I'd bet the Minnesota pagan movement is more rooted in Norse mythology than West Coast circles, which are more Wiccan and pantheist. That was my experience in Chicago.

No, not at all. There are very few Norse Pagans here. Most of Wiccan although there are a lot of unique traditions. Most people have Wicca as a base even if they have a Shamanistic or even Cannanite style.

We had once group that was listed in the telephone yellow pages under Churches: other. We're a very out-of-the-broom closet community.

We are also a very cooperative community. Chicago is pretty much one big witch war. That doesn't happen so much here. When you live in a climate like we have here, you learn to get along.
