Thank you for supporting same-sex marriage and inclusiveness

This petition had 701 supporters


Dear Icelandic Pagan Association,

We stand with you in your efforts to be allowed to conduct same-sex marriages, and to be inclusive of LGBTQIA people.

We stand with you as you extend a welcome to people of any nationality and ethnicity.

We believe that the Heathen and Pagan virtue of hospitality is best expressed by including everyone who is interested in Heathenry, regardless of colour or sexual orientation.

We are horrified to learn that you received hate mail from right-wing so-called Pagans because of your tolerance and inclusiveness.

There is no room for racism or homophobia or transphobia in Heathenry, Druidry, Wicca, witchcraft, Paganism, polytheism, and kindred traditions. The vast majority of Heathens, Druids, Wiccans, witches, polytheists, and kindred traditions are against racism and homophobia.

Why is this important?

The Icelandic Pagan Association has received hate mail for its inclusive and progressive stance. http://icelandmag.visir.is/article/icelandic-pagan-association-receives-hate-mail-reactionary-pagans-abroad

If you are opposed to racism and homophobia and transphobia in Heathenry and Paganism and polytheism and kindred religions, please sign to show your solidarity with Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, the high priest of The Ásatrúarfélag, and the congregation of practitioners of the ancient heathen religion of Scandinavia and the settlers of Iceland.

We the undersigned applaud the liberal beliefs and attitudes of The Ásatrúarfélag / Icelandic Pagan Association.
