Blanket statements - no matter how well intentioned they may be - are never a good idea. When you encounter a group of other Pagans, it’s important to remember that they’re probably not all going to be the same flavor of Pagan as you. Not all Pagans are Wiccans, and therefore not everyone follows, for example, the Wiccan Rede. Understand that for every person who identifies as Pagan, there is a different set of beliefs, practices, and world experience.
One well-known Pagan author has repeatedly come under fire for statements such as “Real Pagans don’t do this,” or “A true Pagan would never do that.” Pagan paths are as varied as the people who follow them, and it’s not up to any of us to decide that one person’s brand of Paganism is less valid than anyone else’s.
Not all Pagans adhere to the law of threefold return, the Wiccan Rede, the concept of “harm none,” or any of the other numerous mandates that are found in the many Pagan traditions.
