Ashe, I think the variety of pagan views is the beautiful antidote to the ugliness of organized religion.

I also don't think all paths lead to the same place.  I feel there are different types of "energies."  I'm still a seeker, and this is an exploration on my part.  I wonder if when a Christian prays to Jesus for personal safety, for example, is this prayer the beginning of a protection spell?  When a Muslim extremist prays to Allah for death and destruction (9/11), is this dark magic?  I really don't want to bring politics into this.  I'm trying to view this from a theological point of view.  I've been thinking about this for a long time. Another example is people following a leader.  I think this is similar to organized religion. Think Hitler in terms of dark magic, and Ghandi in terms of positive energy.

Marigold, I was just thinking very similar questions, and thoughts!

Lady of Shalott, there is some channeling going on here  :)  I was just thinking that religious tenets and actual followers of these tenets with their various degrees of human deficincies are two quite different things indeed.
