The Coven is committed to public paganism and many of our members are very active in the St. Louis community.
That is not to say, however, that all individual members are public or choose to share their beliefs with everyone around them. We still live in a world where people fear that which they do not understand. It can make life difficult. There are simply too many people who hold deep hatred for anyone who is different.
Because, however, of our public image and our outreach, some of the walls are falling. Education is the best defense against intolerance. We believe that we are entitled to all of the rights, freedoms, and protections that is granted to all other religions in this country, and we claim those rights, freedoms, and protections as our own.
