I am a “Religious” Pagan marriage celebrant.
I am the “last” legal religious Pagan celebrant” in Australia.
Our government has deemed all celebrants, civil, unless they are from a registered religion, which I am. However, they will not allow any other celebrants to become “religious Pagan” unless Paganism becomes a registered denomination. Sadly, even though there are many registered Pagan churches and groups ready to band together to become a denomination, the Attorney General’s Department is not allowing our application for an umbrella Pagan religious denomination to go through. Thirty-six Pagan religious organisations have banded together to do this. Yet , the Australian Attorney-General’s Department’s reason for the denial is because “They” don’t consider Paganism to be an organized religion.
So, an arbitrary decision has been made, a judgment call, by someone
with opposing religious views, hidden behind a desk somewhere, to limit
your religious freedom. This decision affects every Australian and
Pagan, all around the world. You have to tell them that is not
acceptable. Say “NO” loudly and clearly. Otherwise, in the near future
we may not be able to hold beautiful ceremonies like this, legally, any
more – https://youtu.be/GsQALE_Te1I and we will have moved back one step closer to the dark ages and a return to the witch hunts.
STAND UP & SAY “NO” TO THAT!!!!
It would be wonderful if we all could show support for religious freedom, of a group that has no dogma, empowering, honors the individual, follows an nature based belief system, that is highly ethical, has no extremist history and that hurts no one. In fact, during the recent ‘Royal Commission into Victimization by Religious Organizations’ there were “zero” complains lodged against any Pagan group or organization. Yet what we do is hold beautiful and meaningful ceremonies like this handfasting.
Please show your support for what Australia could loose if Pagan Religious celebrants become extinct with my demise.
Please demand that our religious freedoms be upheld by signing this petition.
Thank you and Every Bright Blessing to you,
Reverend. Dr S. D’Montford (D.D. HPs)
