It makes me want to cry to know that these sorts of people are still out there. There's so much I want to say about this, I don't know what to say.

Ironic...that Druidry is indigenous to the British Isles...persecuted into near extinction by Roman Catholicism and other Christian denominations.

Christianity is/was the (bloody, murdering, village torching) conqueror's religion in most of Europe, as Islam is in many other parts of the world.

Celtic, I read the article and signed the petition…

I just wonder what make Christians think their religion is so much better than others. Can’t people just respect each other’s choices? It is not that difficult, is it?

I'm forwarding this on behalf of Druids in the UK.

We apologize for interrupting you with this message, but if the Druid communities worldwide are to continue being taken serious, this is an important matter in where we require a little bit of your help - by adding your signature to an online petition.

An article appeared in The Daily Mail Online UK, written by Melanie Phillips with the title "Druids as an official religion? Stones of Praise here we come". This article is entirely filled with Christian-based bashing, mocking and insulting of modern Druidism - and in turn all Druids, meaning all of us.

A short example from this article goes as follows: "Elevating them to the same status as Christianity is but the latest example of how the bedrock creed of this country is being undermined. More than that, it is an attack upon the very concept of religion itself." Another example goes: "There is nothing remotely enlightened about paganism. It was historically tied up with both communism and fascism, precisely because it is a negation of reason and the bedrock values behind Western progress."

The entire hate-spreading article can be read here:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/articl
e-1317490/Druids-official-religion-Sto
nes-Praise-come.html

When you read this article, written in the name of a News Media that is supposed to deliver neutral news, you will understand why it is important for the Druid community to give a strong response to this. Whether you agree with Druidism to be a religion or not, this "news article" is an insult on all Druids worldwide, and any Pagan in general!

In order to have our voices heard, we should add our signature to the ongoing petition that will be delivered to The Daily Mail UK in a week from now. Signing this petition takes only one minute of your time, and you can do it here:

http://www.petitiononline.com/druid1/pet
ition.html

You don't need to register, don't need to confirm any emailed links, just click to sign the petition, fill out the small form and submit it -- that's all!

But for this petition to be heard, we need thousands of names on it. Will you help us?

Thank you and blessings,

Phoenix
