PaganNewsBeagle Faithful Friday Sept 26

Happy Friday, Beagle-fans! Today we have a bouquet of religious stories starting out with one about not being religious. 7 varieties of unreligion; Hindu Goddess festival begins; teaching children values depends on politics and religion; selfies of Sikhs; Pagans on death and burial.

This story from Salon posits that there are seven kinds of unreligion (including pantheism, which is awfully close to many Pagan beliefs to my way of thinking, and maybe shouldn't be considered "unreligion" at all.)

The Hindu festival of Navrati began yesterday and celebrates the Mother Goddess for nine days.

The Pew Center published its recent research on how ideology and religion affect the values people believe it is important to teach to children. (The highest commonality was emphasis on the value of responsibility.)

What do Sikhs look like? This project by the HuffPo asks Sikhs to send selfies. (Although Sikhism is the fifth largest world religion, Sikhs -- especially male Sikhs -- are often mistaken for Muslims because of their distinctive look.)

The Wild Hunt asked Pagans for their thoughts on death and burial, and this story by Heather Greene shares the widely varying stores of those that responded.
