PMP: Enough is enough!

Show notes for Pagan-Musings Podcast, Sunday 12 January 2014:

RevKess and KaliSara call it as they see it in this edition of Pagan-Musings Podcast. Inspired in part by a blog entry on Radical Wind, your hosts stroll down the lane of radical thinking. The hosts did not set out to bash on Witch Wind or even on Z Budapest, but to call them out on the hypocrisy of their words and how those words hurt more than heal. They also covered some of the intersections of discrimination.

The topic focused heavily on the concepts introduced by Witch Wind’s blog article. “All intercourse is rape.” “Men crave power over women.” And other similar concepts. As well as talking about how Z Budapest has said that all men are secretly gay and are a danger to woman as they forcibly have sex with them to hide their gayness. (Unfortunately the article of Budapest’s that states is no longer online, but you can read segments of it in one of KaliSara’s blog posts from February 2012.)

The thrust of the topic addresses “intersectionality”. Wikipedia’s article on intersectionality begins: Intersectionality (or Intersectionalism) is the study of intersections between different disenfranchised groups or groups of minorities; specifically, the study of the interactions of multiple systems of oppression or discrimination.

KaliSara and RevKess would like to say thank you to their friend Arthur for sharing much of the below listed articles as well as many more.

PWN #46: Murder, Transgender Hate Mongering, Books

The 46th edition of Pagan Weekly News was rather heated and some what disjointed. For the latter we apologize. Zaracon had to sign off early due to stomach ailments and KaliSara was not prepared for filling in on anything other than the Zsuzsanna Budapest story.

We started out with a follow-up to a story we were a little late in covering the first time. Over a year ago, Peter Lucas Moses was arrested and charged with the deaths of his 28 year old “wife” and her 4 year old son. Wife is in quotes, as the man had four wives and was the self proclaimed leader of the Black Hebrews, a religious group claiming to be the direct descendants of the ancient Israeli tribes. Moses has plead guilty to the killings, accepting a plea for two consecutive life sentences (rather than the death penalty) in exchange for his testimony against his sister, mother, and his three other “wives”. Read the full article here.

We then moved onto the upcoming (Tuesday, 12 June 2012) vote in North Dakota regarding an amendment that would allow religious law (Christian religious law) to trump the laws of North Dakota and by extension the United States. A Christian form of Sharia Law that few are crying out against. We are expecting to do a brief follow-up on the result of that vote in next week’s edition. Read an editorial article from Addicting Information on this amendment.

Our main story was about Zsuzsanna Budapest and her apparent continued attack on the transgender population, not just within the Pagan community, but as a portion of the global community. KaliSara chimed in on this discussion, as she has for our previous coverage about Z Budapest and her apparent hatred towards the trans community. (Hear those episodes here and here and most recently here.) KaliSara brought the current “rants” to our attention over the weekend, referring to two posts on Facebook by Budapest. Please read Budapest’s posts from Thursday and Friday, as well as the comments, for more information.

After the rather heated discussion about Budapest, RevKess felt it would be a good idea to insert the introductory episode or segment from That Witchy Place with Peter Beckley. That Witchy Place is a podcast segment provided to the podcast community by Peter and his wife.  The segments will cover topics of green living, Pagan homesteading, and other environmentally minded issues. Some of the segments may stray from that general theme, but all should be worth listening to. If you would like to hear those segments by themselves or are a podcaster who would like to include them in your own shows, please visit That Witchy Place for more information.

We wrapped up the show with a brief run down of the 27 Essential Books on Paganism from Huffington Post’s Religion section of their online newspaper. We are inviting our listeners to submit to us their own lists of essential books on Paganism and spirituality for a future show. You can list them in comments on this blog, at our Facebook page or email them to us at paganmusings@gmail.com.

Music heard during the show:

  1. 1. Emerald Rose – Fire in the Head – Bending Tradition
  2. . SJ Tucker – Cheshire Kitten – Mischief
  3. . SJ Tucker – Firebird’s Child – Solace and Sorrow
  4. . Cernunnos Rising – Greenman (Last Tree Falling) – Wild Soul

Pagan Weekly News #39: Show Notes

The Pagan Weekly News is approaching a full year on the internet air waves. Hard to believe. 13 more episodes and Zaracon and RevKess can celebrate a full year of programming. A full year of bringing the listeners news, views, and interviews from and about the global Pagan community. The 39th edition was no exception to that.

Zaracon and RevKess were joined by fellow PMPC hosts KaliSara and Shauna Aura for a discussion of the latest public out cry by Z. Budapest, this time over the “unauthorized” use of her “We All Come From the Goddess.”

Listen to the show to get more details, or visit the Wild Hunt and read what Jason Pitzl-Waters wrote regarding the story.

They also talked about the untimely passing of Katrina Kessler, Earth Day, the Pope’s war on women in the United States, and the fifth anniversary of the Pentacle being approved for Veterans’ tombstones.
