Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting: Latest cost of empowering hate

At 9:54 AM on October 27, the joyous occasion of a baby-naming ceremony at the Tree of Life Synagogue in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh was shattered when a lone gunman entered with the intent of committing a hate crime. This murderer chose to target the Jewish congregation during their worship services for brutal slayings to further his own racist agenda.

The horror of the murders at the Tree of Life Synagogue has shaken the nation, leaving many of us to wonder how we may help. Two of the victims of this shooting, brothers Cecil and David Rosenthal, were personal acquaintances of members of the Pittsburgh-area Hearth of Yggdrasil.

The Troth’s stance on inclusive Heathenry is enshrined within our Bylaws, the mandatory oaths of our Officers, our status as a signatory to Declaration 127, and our work within Heathens Against Hate. We hold as sacred within our halls that hatred or bigotry based on race, gender, orientation, ability or faith is abhorrent in the sight of the gods and in the eyes of our ancestors. 

The Big Lie

Pedophilia is being used to generate and more callously, to sanctify the promotion of hatred against LGBTQ people here in North America by a right wing that actually knows they are lying, because they know it will work.

On Current Issue of Family Separation and Child Incarceration:

While The Troth recognizes the complexity of the immigration issue, the organization condemns the separation of families and the incarceration of children. We call upon Congress and the White House to end this inhumane policy, to stop using these children to score political points, and to work together to develop sensible immigration laws.

Sagas of Imagination

The Troth is pleased to announce the publication of our largest and most ambitious translation project yet: _Sagas of Imagination_. This book presents no fewer than eleven sagas and six shorter texts, carefully translated and annotated by Ben Waggoner, some of them never before translated into English. These sagas chart the development of literary fantasy in medieval Iceland.

Swastika and Runes; Heritage or Hate

 

There has been a lot of noise lately about the use of runes in the Norwegian Olympic team sweater.  The objection is that two runes are displayed on the sweater, Tiwaz and Elhaz, the runes for Tyr/victory and elk/protection, had been used by the Nazi’s for certain specific groups and programs (leadership school for Tiwaz, and birth/death announcements for Elhaz).
