Britain Recognizes Druidry As Religion

Post by Librarian » Tue Oct 05, 2010 7:35 am

As that well-known Pagan festival of Samhain approaches, Druids have something else to celebrate.

Druidry, an ancient Celtic belief that worships deities who take their forms in nature, has been given the official status of a ‘religion' in Britain. It is a form of neo-paganism, along with Wicca, Voodoo and Shamanism. Surprisingly enough the belief system is already provided with tax-exempt religious group status in the US.

Definitely Fantastic news! You can't get much better news than that!

Was surpassed me to find that druidry hadn't been made legal there yet when Wicca has been for ages. I've know several British Druids and they never mentioned that fact, course I never asked about those kind of legalities over there either, lol
