For those who don't know, I run a facebook page for Pagan Spirituality, Education and Lifestyle... Sept. 21 & 22 are "Pagan Awareness" days. Days when Pagans nationwide will work to counter some of the misconceptions and misunderstandings about Paganism and better educate the world as a whole.
On the coat tales of these days of educating others about out beliefs, I felt it is important to also focus on educating ourselves about the faiths of others. Because of this, I will be using October as "CoExist month" where I will be posting links, facts, videos and so on in an effort to educate my readers (and myself) on other faiths.
I'm asking for your help in doing this. There are MILLIONS of websites, YouTube videos, articles, quotes and whatever else out there about all the many different faiths in the world - Unfortunately I'm NOT an expert and don't know which of these are factual and which are propaganda (which I do NOT want to post!) So I'm asking that each of you take a few moments, let me know what faith you represent, and possibly provide me with websites, youtube channels, or anything else you can to help me better fulfill my goal.
Thank you in advance to everyone who is willing to help me out!

Ok, you tell me - do you want to include a folkish heathenry link or not? I can give you one that is more "acceptable" and doesn't go all fundy, but where the links on the site take you once you leave it is a crapshoot.
In the meantime: The Troth (that's the non-folkish US org)

i dunno if you want to use Deism or not, but...
http://moderndeism.com/html/great_quotes.html (lots of great quotes but they arent all from Deists, some are just Deistic in idea)
http://deistalliance.org/deismtv/?tubepress_page=1 (a video entitled "what is Deism?")
deism.com is no good. they are very agressive & are convinced they are right...to the point that all others are wrong which goes against Deism so dont use it haha.

I would be more than happy to share some resources with you but the character limit in answers makes it very difficult to do so without having to post a hundred times so please feel free to send my a PM if you would like more resource recommendations.
