Asatru faith
    #4723645 - 09/28/05 03:26 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Does anyone here follow the ways of the old Norse beliefs?
Do you practice runic magic, if so how/when/why/where?

Our blood line (fathers side at confirmed least) has been traced back all the way to the boecernians, so for the last year I have been really reading into my "heritage" ... the more and more I read into this "mythology" (that word bugs me) the more I see parallels with ALOT of other 'newer' religions...I also see STRONG parallels with Astrology...and not to mention the strong connection between Tarot and Rune Casting...and the more I get into it the more "revelations" I have about life (existence) in general...I could go on and on, but I want to wait for at least a couple replies.....

I've looked into Norse a little and think it's really interesting...

I'd like to hear more....about your revelations.

Be VERY careful with Asatru.

Asatru is a religion based on European ancestry. This is all fine and well but it is heavily infiltrated by the extreme rightwing/white supremacist movements.

Many Asatru groups are Whites Only. And then not just Nordic whites, but it is conveniently extended to include non-nordic white people, but nobody nowadays commonly regarded as non-white. That should get you thinking.

Great good can come of Asatru, but many of it's followers have nowhere near the respect for non-white people than they really ought to have and if you visit a website or join a group it remains to be seen whether you are joining up with authentic Asatru or a bunch of Theofascists.

Asatru: be very careful. Many groups are really just recruiting race war warriors and teach white pride (as in: supremacy) rather than a harmonious coexistance and they dilute the faith to cater to high-testosterone extremists.

Ask any straight-line Asatru believer and he will say that in the nordic countries (such as Scandinavia and Germany) infiltration by Neonazis is one of the greatest threats and challenges Asatru faces.

I met one guy who did.

He also started a prominant white power group with his sister and spent a year in jail for distributing child porn.

Don't get too hung up on heritage.

You seem to be thinking along the lines that the non racist Asatrus are the "real" ones, while the others aren't.

This is injecting your own morals into the religion, those that follow your moral beliefs are right, and those that don't are wrong.

While I think that racism is despicable, it could very well be an integral part of this religion, and the non racists may be the ones corrupting it.

Just something to think about.

well first off every source I gather information from always has a disclaimer regarding text and/or images...they are not "white pride" sites... I am not a race warrior, lol... THOUGH i do have pride that doesn't mean I hate a certain sect of people.

Wiccan_Seeker you said: "Many Asatru groups are Whites Only. And then not just Nordic whites, but it is conveniently extended to include non-nordic white people, but nobody nowadays commonly regarded as non-white. That should get you thinking."

Uh...well if is based on European ancestry I would 'figure' that it would be mostly consist of Caucasian people of course, lol...the statement above is racist in itself: 'white people' could be such a large array of different races, how could you just categorize them as 'white people'???...that should get you thinking lol...

you also said:
"infiltration by Neonazis is one of the greatest threats and challenges Asatru faces"

I totally agree with you man. It really makes me angry that all these neo-Nazi's adopt symbols such as the Celtic cross, valknot, and even whats known as the modern swastika...which by the way I will probably get a sun disk tattoo which has a swastika in the middle...i know people will go ape shit and explode on me, but hey its time to TAKE BACK our symbols for what they REALLY mean...fuck fascism.

And I am VERY in to heritage, I love history...therefore I study it. Which this would include Nazi Germany, because I am half German. So I know a thing or two about the insanity of fascism. I also was a member of the North West Historical Association for a couple years and taught the public about German combat/tactics/weapons/uniforms etc...along with British, Canadian, and American units. But hey, I am probably a bad person for teaching history too huh.

and Phluck I agree with your last statement.
