So there’s a screen image of a list of supposedly openly pagan celebrities going around. I rather doubt many of the names on the list so have tried to research them.
Alyson Hannigan — As far as I can tell it’s just a rumor tied to her being Willow on Buffy.
Avril Lavigne — She apparently declared herself openly as a wiccan in an interview a few years ago but I was unable to find it. It’s also been cited that she’s a Roman Catholic. (Could she possible be a Christopagan??). So, she’s either Wiccan or Catholic.
Fairuza Balk — She’s the only one on the list that’s a “maybe” that I believe to be pagan. She was openly pagan after The Craft, and owned at least for awhile an occult shop.
Fred Durst — He was apparently raised a Wiccan, but I was unable to find this cited anywhere reliable.
George Lucas — He’s also a pretty likely maybe. But most listed him solely for “the Force”.
George Takei — Can’t figure out why he’s listed. I found absolutely no reference to him being pagan.
Tamora Pierce — Yeah, she’s seems to only be listed because most of her books use made up pagan religions.
Vanessa Carlton — again, nothing reliable. She apparently uses pagan imagery in her music, though I’ve never heard it in any of the songs I’ve listened to of hers and that’s a lot.
Virgina Woolf — She’s likely a neo-pagan, which is what she apparently claims to be. I couldn’t find any reference to this at all tho.
Yoko Ono— As far as I can tell she was only listed because she was into tarot and psychics.
The entire list can be seen at www.angelfire.com/ia/Geoff/famous.html but the site seems to have been inactive since about 2006. I was going to contact the author to hear his references for my own personal knowledge, but he has absolutely no contact information on the site, not even an email address, instructing visitors to sign his guestbook in order to contact him. The guestbook has been disabled.
Do you know anything that could solve this debate?
If you do, please include the source or information to find it. Thank you.
