  •  I had a professor (4+ / 0-)

    who had simpler definitions:

    Pagan:  Believing in other gods.
    Heathen:  Outside the (our) church.

    Those can be useful concepts, but I really like the linguistic approach Ojibwa used here.  Gives it some nice depth.

    And there's always "PAGAN:  People Against Goodness And Niceness" from the movie.  :D

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
