Uncle Thor's Magazine Online 


Online Journal of Practical Heathenism and Paganism

Summer 2010 Issue

Twelve Years Later...

We are back after a long hiatus. The time is right for Uncle Thorrís Magazine to make a return. Our outspoken journal of Modern Heathenism has become necessary again. Of course, we are inspired to return because of new situations that need attention. Nonetheless, we are back.

            As we did in the past, we answer to no one. We call them as we see them. This is NOT a place for weenies, wimps, whiners, soft-skinned crybabies or mumble-mouthed fence-sitters. Uncle Thorís Magazine (Online) is a place for folks who take a stand, can handle the good and the bad, and believe that life is for living. Our articles are aimed at Heathens, Wiccans and other Pagans. These are the folks we consider our people. We make no apologies for our beliefs, and feel no need to justify them to anyone.  

            If you like your Heathenism and Paganism to have all the impact of a 155mm howitzer, here it is. If you like to think, decide and discuss things intelligently, you are in the right place. And if you take things with a grain of salt, have a bit of doubt and have your skeptical moments, welcome aboard. Uncle Thorís Magazine (Online) is for folks who question things rather than accept everything that is shoveled their way.

            Be warned, this is not your usual Heathen / Pagan rag. This is Practical Heathenism, and the focus is on issues in the real world. You can read theology in my books (please ,buy lots of them!) The magazine is a place to read about things that matter today, when you walk out that door each morning to live in the world.

            Welcome aboard! This train is about the leave the station, so be ready for the ride!
