PaganNewsBeagle Watery Wednesday Community News Sept 24

In our Watery Wednesday post today, we cover community news for Pagans & their allies including: a discrimination claim filed by a (Pagan) Auburn University professor for wrongful termination due to religion; the Air Force no longer requires "so help me God" in enlistment oaths; a UK paper profiles a local Witch; a great article on Canadian Pagans; and the Wild Hunt Pagan news site launches its 2014 Fall fundraising campaign.

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.
