Priorities, Part 2

A real quick update to my earlier post on the priorities of the folks over at Gods & Radicals. I thought it might be instructive to take a look at the posts over there during the last month (Jun 11 - Jul 11) and see just how many dealt with topics relating to magic, paganism, Heathenry, etc. I did my counts just based on the tags they apply to their own posts; nothing subjective on my part.

The results are as unsurprising as one might expect. Out of thirty posts over the last thirty days, a grand total of eight were tagged with something relevant to religion; paganism, polytheism, magic, etc.

That's just a smidgen over a quarter. Only 27% of their posts in the last month, by their own tagging system, had to do with Gods. Even if you take out their Weekly Updates, which are a sort of grab-bag that don't have any specific tags relating to the content within, their rate only goes up to 32%. Still pretty pathetic for a site that puts the word "Gods" at the beginning of their name.

Perhaps they should rebrand themselves as "Radicals (and Occasionally Gods)."

  1. No, they aren't even the "Occasionally Gods." Just Radicals. Because the Gods mean nothing to them unless they are verifying what's in their echo chambers.
