Why is it that in US history, Jews have come here, built temples, openly lived as Jews, handled prejudice, but so many neopagans don't seem to be able to, thus huddle in broom closets?
Are the Gods of such neopagans weaker than the Jewish God? Are the magical abilities of those neopagans as powerful as tissue paper?
Zoning laws getting you down? Whoop di do. That's douche baggery. Persevere until you win. Others have.
