A worshipper of the gods of my paternal ancestors, the Aesir and the Vanir.
I AM NOT:
Make offerings to my deities, seek their aid and guidance, and do my best to honor my ancestors and my descendants by doing good things in this life.
I DO NOT:
Perform a "Black Mass", sacrifice animals, give a stiff-arm salute, or dress up like somebody out of Lord Of The Rings.
Respectful of others' belief systems, even if I dislike what some of their adherents do to/say about folks like me.
I AM NOT:
A follower of a deluded, megalomaniacal, and honorless (not to mention dead) Austrian housepainter.
That the Aesir and Vanir dwell yet in the Nine Worlds.
That my faith is my faith, and I have no right to force it on anyone who doesn't share it.
In the virtues of Courage, Truth, Honor, Fidelity, Discipline, Hospitality, Industriousness, Self-reliance, and Perseverance.
In doing what is right, rather than what is "right now".
That what we do in this life affects those who come after us, and that I am charged with living a life that my descendants would be proud of talking about.
That all are worthy of respect, even when they refuse to give respect to me.
Defend my kin and others, just as Thor defends the whole of Midgard.
Live a life of honor and worth, so that those who come after me will not be ashamed.
Speak the truth, even though it may currently be out of fashion.
WHAT I AM:
Is Asatruar--and I'm damn proud of it.
