I really enjoy reading Grimms Fairy Tales. I do have to say that they have lessons in them that people from a variety of religions can learn from, even though there are religions out there with Pagan Roots.

I posted an in-depth reply to this article through the full-article link. Some inaccuracies in the full article, unfortunately.

It reads like it was translated from another language (not so well) or written by someone who is still learning Engligh. Sentences start and end abruptly as if there was some further thought or supportive fact that got left out.

This Pagan Examiner site that often gets posted on Topix tends to have a lot of summarized articles with little or no citation to support the assertations made, do not appear to be edited before posted, and also often have very little expansion on the ideas or 'facts' that are presented in them. It doesn't mean everything on it is all bad- it just tends to be a poorly editorialized site with little fact-checking and no requirement of citations, links, etc.

Thank you for adding your perspective there.

Really ticked me off about the "book" they released, first only to I devices and now Kindle, And you can't get a free copy without having to have a credit card on file with them...

I know, I hate that. I don't own any "I" devices, nor do I own a Kindle, to each his own, and I am not judging anyone, but I prefer the old fashioned way of reading books that contain covers with paper in them...

I do both. I still love and have tons of actual books. But I don't get carsick reading my Kindle while a passanger on trips as long as I take a break about every hour. With a book I go from well to green in about five minutes. Go figure.
