RED & BLUE Pagans

I gotta say that. much as I want to go at politics from a secular foundation, these days the religious affiliations and/or spiritual inclinations of candidates and office holders do interest me, concern me. Some affiliations tend to be less tolerant--even intolerant--of other affiliations. It seems to me that a candidate coming from a spiritual warfare church might well, if she or he came to power, repress Pagan religious freedoms. Or that one coming from a liberal church might promote them.

FWIW, I try not to divide Pagans into red vs. blue or whatever, trusting that our common stake in religious expression overarches these kinds of memberships. Maybe it's just me, but I won't put party loyalty in front of my Paganism.
