SORT BY Relevancy
As event season gets ready to kick off for the Pagan community there are any number of minor controversies that might crop up. In the passed there have been issues regarding gender in sacred space, certain notable presenters and their pasts, and other issues - both minor and major. This year seems to be no exception to that. With Covenant of the Goddess facing member resignations and turmoil over their public statement regarding racial issues and a first time out festival in direct conflict with a well established festival - in both timing and geographic location - there seems to be now shortage of controversies to address this year.
RevKess and KaliSara will talk about some of those current issues and how they may play out in the near future. From Peter Dybing's strong stand on racial inclusivity in practice and language in regards to CoG to the Gathering of Pagan Souls festival being in direct conflict with Heartland Spirit Festival at the end of May. Along the way they may also address some of the past issues that have come in the Pagan world and how they were addressed and handled by those who could make a difference. They will also talk about other upcoming events in the Pagan world, including ConVocation and PantheaCon.

2 Kings 2:11-12 (KJV) And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.
Zechariah 6:1-3 (KJV)
And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass. In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second chariot black horses; And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses.
Psalm 68:17 (KJV) The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.
Star of Bethlehem: The star that hovered over the stable where the infant Jesus lay. Some UFO researchers think that the "star" was actually a spaceship, raising the question of whether the Holy Bible contains references to UFOs and alien visitors. An even greater controversy are those researchers who make reference to the Christian Apocrypha, that claim Jesus was brought to Earth in the Star of Bethlehem, which is described in the ancient texts as being winged, with various colored rays shooting out from behind it.

Hot new artist that is dominating the east coast region, EmKay. He has been blazing microphones in the tri-city area since the turn of the 21st century. EmKay has received several awards and recognition for his single "Control" from the 2013 Mixtape: Moving On. EmKay's message is one of living life to the fullest, despite what people have to say about you. He has had to face controversy similar to that of Eminem throughout his career in hip hop simply because of the complexion of his skin. However he always finds a way to outsmart his opposition by coming harder with solid music that even the most negative critic cant deny.
One word to describe EmKay's sound is Snappy. He delivers bars that confront all the negativity sent his way with a style that is far beyond your traditional "angry white rapper" stigma, but on a more conscious level of empowerment through musical expression.
Latest project R.E.A.L (Revealing Everything About Life)
