PaganNewsBeagle Fiery Tuesday September 2

Fiery Tuesday is here and the PaganNewsBeagle is back. Labor Day Blues (most Americans are too overworked to take time off); town of Greece is pretty clear which God they want civic prayers to address; the legend of Horatio Alger, the plight of the Yazidis, and Pagan consent culture.

Did you take Labor Day (U.S. holiday) off? If so, congratulations. This story at the HuffPo points out a troubling trend: an increasing number of us are too overworked, stressed-out, and downright scared of losing their job to take vacation time.

Only One God Welcome: Slate's editorial points out that the recently permitted (by the Supreme Court) civic prayers of Greece, New York are only interested in addressing a certain well-known God.

In this very well-written (and lengthy) article on the history of America's ideal of meritocracy the myth of "bootstrapping yourself to wealth" is examined and found to be, at best, a wee bit outdated.

Terence Ward at the Wild Hunt describes the plight of the (pre-Christian? Pagan?) Yazidi minority in ISAL-dominated Iraq.

Shauna Aura Knight's recent post "The Frosts and Consent Culture" takes a long, hard look at how modern Pagan culture deals (and avoids dealing with) ethical controversy in its ranks.
