I am writing to determine if the Pagan Federatiin of Ireland truly supports all Pagan paths, as stated on your website.
Image recently received the attached screenshot of a query by an Odinist. (Attached below)
Could you please advise us as to if this is indeed the attitude of your organization towards what are known as traditional folkish Heathens?

Pagan Federation Ireland operates a zero tolerance approach to racism and homophobia, both of which were abundantly clear in the initial communication.
Your values, as stated here on your website - https://odinia.org/what-are-values/
- are incompatible with ours.
If your religious beliefs or practices incorporate either racism or homophobia, then you will not find a home here.
As you seem to wish to make some sort of political issue of this, might we suggest the following:
Screenshots are so very amateur, and prone to being disbelieved.
For a proven donation of €10 to any Irish Pagan organisation, not necessarily ourselves, or to the Native Woodland Trust - http://www.nativewoodlandtrust.ie/en/
we will send you a signed copy of the statement on headed notepaper.
Laminated if you wish.
We will also send you permission to distribute the letter, in its complete form only, as widely as you wish.
The €10 will cover two copies of the letter,
one of which we will have framed and put on the office wall, lest we ever forget.
Yours most sincerely
Pagan Federation Ireland
