The Meeting

The next meeting in the second series of our Motivational Dialogues will be held on Sunday the 28th of November at 5pm CET on Zoom (see below for different time zones). You can watch recordings of previous meetings here.

Morgana Sythove, a leading figure in the International Pagan Federation and the Pagan community in the Netherlands, as well as a member of the Dutch Chapter of the IARF, will speak on “Religious discrimination and the misappropriation of symbols”:

At the recent Parliament of the World’s Religions / PWR virtual 2021 PF Scotland, in collaboration with PFI and PF, presented a panel about ‘Anti-Pagan Discrimination the Untold Story’.

A survey had, and still is being held, to research into ‘anti-pagan discrimination’. One of the major problems is that of long history of ‘bad publicity’ and the use of the word, ‘paganism’. In this presentation Morgana will be highlighting the problems ‘people of the earth’ suffer as having, apparently, ‘no faith’.

As well as being ridiculed there is also the misappropriation and abuse of symbols such as the Swastika, 5-pointed star, runes.. and many more. It’s time for a closer look at these issues.

The format of the series is simple – a speaker talks for 10 to 20 minutes, and a conversation follows. These are open meetings and everyone is welcome to participate, ask questions and speak their mind.

Can a purpose for religion be deduced?

Religion largely aims to instill the Golden Rule, emphasizing compassion across different traditions, as highlighted on Karen Armstrong’s This ethos, promoting altruism, drives human survival and outlines initiatives like the Unitarian Universalist Association’s commitment to transforming the world through liberating love, addressing global ills such as hate, greed, and social inequalities.
