Follow-up thoughts on

Responses to my post here and on my blog have me wondering:

• Do we have a tendency to assume that if someone in our community advocates sincerity, it's because they lack competence?

• Are we willing to settle for mere competence because we've grown distrustful of sincerity as part of the spiritual community experience?

• What has made us so cynical and jaded about our fellow Pagans? Does social media itself play a role in this dynamic?

Ideas, anyone?
