If you force your cat or dog to eat a vegan diet you are a despicable human being.

Get a fucking rabbit.

Is Hellenic polytheism compatible with other polytheist ideas? Specifically Celtic polytheism?

tomeeklystay said: You have to worship the Hellenics before all others, but otherwise it’s totes okay.

Nooooo, this is not truuuuueeee.

What exactly do you mean, feministfaun?

(tomeeklystay here) Really? I know almost nothing about the religion, but got into a roaring argument with soloontherocks about the compatibility of Christianity and HP, and they seemed completely confident that the two wouldn’t mix because both demanded to be worshipped highest. 

This is going to be a terrible example, please forgive me.

But doesn’t God ask for all your love and devotion?

Wouldn’t this be like a poly relationship where you go ‘sorry, I love and respect (first person) more than (second person) yet still want the best of both worlds?’

Again, terrible example but I can’t think of anything better to relate it to.

There is NO rule that says the Hellenic gods need to be worshipped above all other deities.

None.

Nada.

Eusebia (Piety) - The power which leads to the honouring of the Theoi. It also means to have correct perception for granting honour to the Theoi as well as acting with Justice towards them and having secure knowledge of the honour due to the Theoi.

Do people like seeing my amulets (whether finished bronzes or clay works-in-progress) here on tumblr? This is my latest batch of designs.

From the left: Squatting deity body holding ankh (I make the heads separately), traditional amuletic form of Nit’s bow emblem, tiny sistrum which will actually be functional, menat/counter-poise, and Mafdet’s symbol.

The answer is yes. Yes is the answer. <3<3<3

Tiny working sistrum! Yes.
