Yes it is. We had a group of pagans who tried to meet, weekly, in a local park a few years ago. They were ran off every single time. I listened to all my co workers rant about devil worship until I was sick to death. I am not a pagan, but like all my co workers, grew up in an area where Paganism is a part of everyday life. You can not find one local farmer who does not plant crops based on pagan signs. That's just the tip of it. We clung hard and long to our scotch-Irish heritage and ways. Locals speak a form of "ulster-scot". We still sing songs, tell stories, and use methods that have not been done in Ireland/Scotland/England in well over 200 years. I had to set them straight. Know your roots people!

Sorry. Just had to agree.
