    I haven’t really looked into their teachings, but I’m really put off by their use of terms like clergy and Reverend. I also always deeply disliked the use of the word sabbat for the festivals. I don’t think Pagan polytheists should borrow terms like that from the Abrahamic tradition.

    Each to their own, however, I must admit that I balk at that slightly, too. I don’t see the need adopt (appropriate?) terminology and titles from other traditions when we have a wealth of terminology and titles from our own traditions and deriving from the Celtic languages and cultures that birthed what we’re trying to rekindle.
