So i just joined this page. And the first thing i see is a cringy leftwinger trying to claim that my peoples ancient religion is a universal religion. Okey.
Asatro was created by Germanic peoples. It was almost exclusively practised only by Germanic peoples. Wotan/Woden/Odin. All the same and all various names from different Germanic peoples. Asatro does not belong to anyone except Germanic peoples, why? Because its a tribal religion. Just like paganism practised by Native Americans belong to them and only them so does Asatro only belong to Germanic peoples.
Now i know many of you leftwingers blend your political views with religious ones. You almost allways do this. But understand this. Asatro is tribal not universal. If you cannot accept that well too bad i don´t care, scream racist or bloody murder for all i care. But do NOT try to turn tribal war God Odin into a universal one like Jesus just to fit with your multicultural world view.

Rather racist of you Johnny whatever your name is...
Go home to mama...
Allah and El are the same. Try Canaanite and Mesopotamian readings, and come back, and play again.
Good call , Spooky...
Oh absolutely. Same old same old.
The religion is all yours, but the gods—they belong to themselves and go where they want. Only a fool would try to put Wōdan in a box.
Now *that* would be a best seller in marketing !
I am not saying it is politically , or traditionally
correct by any means , and I am not advocating it...
But could you see it...Get Your Woden In A Box !
( Eye patch , tilted fedora , walking staff , runes , two ravens and two wolves included ! )
O , that is wrong...so very , very wrong...
( please , advertising agencies do *not* do this )
