What is Paganism?

It’s a humiliating term used to define the religions which are apart from the official Rome religion. It comes from the Latin word “paganus” and means “rude, villager”. Today, people who believe in Polytheism, use that term to define themselves, and posses it proudly. In Christianity, it is used to define every people who do not accept the church’s dogmas, and also Muslims and Jews. Today, the word “pagan” means the earth-based polytheist religions, and it’s divided to multiple sections (Asatru, Huna, Shamanic practices, Santeria and practices other than monotheist religions etc.).  For example, Wicca is a pagan religion, however not every pagan is a wiccan. Similarly, witchcraft is not counted as a pagan practice if the practitioner hasn’t got a pantheist or polytheist belief.
