Looked at this group and it didnt appear racist outright till I started picking up on the small stuff here https://www.asatru.org
A little bit of wiki and Google and, yup, seems to be founded and ran by notable racists, despite the “we are not racist” bit on their page. That was a little bit disappointing since I was looking for information on the religion as practiced today by regular people. I know that neonazi and the third reich have appropriated symbolism associated with it but they can’t be the majority(I hope).
I cruised on over to https://www.thetroth.org(I can’t find the hyperlink button) and it seems like a decent place to dig into things. Norse religion is genuine interest of mine and on its face seems like a decent, if very small, religion. Of course I wanted to stop in here for the opinion and advise of the Sdmb on the best way or resource for persuing this interest without getting cought up with a bunch of extremists.
Again, I’m looking for opinions and resources for obtaining information on asatru, vanatru, odinism etc. while avoiding the hate groups, not debate the racism or relgion itself.
ETA: maybe this would be a better fit for Great Debates.
