Stop claiming that you treat people badly under the auspices of the gods! | Wandering Woman Wondering

Contemporary polytheistic ethics can be hard because we work with a variety of deities who have different ethical expectations and prescriptions among them. However, hard divine ethical expectations do not give one license to have no ethical convictions, or to stretch ethical principles beyond recognition in the name of a deity. Let’s look to our deities’ home cultures for guidance on what behaviors a particular deity may have frowned upon, or celebrated and let’s look at the ethical expectations of our own cultural context as well! Human beings have basic codes of courtesy, decency, and right-ness, many of which actually transcend religious lines. We are all personally responsible for figuring out what those are and honoring them. The harmony of our relationships and the integrity of our own souls kinda depends on it.
