What are some examples of things that are “Pagan” to you?

Best answer:

Answer by I Am Goddess
I think of it as any rustic and/or folk religion.

According to Wikipedia, paganism is a blanket term given to describe religions and spiritual practices of pre-Christian Europe, and by extension a term for polytheistic traditions or folk religion worldwide seen from a Western or Christian viewpoint.

  1. From the Latin “paganus” it meant rustic religious practices in the European territories of the Roman empire.

  2. To me pagan is;

    a person who does not acknowledge your god.

    a person who follows a polytheistic or pre-Christian religion (not a Christian or Muslim or Jew).

    And a person who is a hedonist: someone motivated by desires for sensual pleasures.

  3. Pagan simply means spirituality that is outside the realm of “the church”.
    Spiritual beliefs in a “power” or god(s)/godess(es) that are undogmatic and practiced outside of historic organized religion. Pagan is worship or belief that is rustic or informal and has no specific “doctrine”.
