What does the term "Harm None" mean in reference to Pagans? It came up in a Rel. Debate question, and I am completely uneducated.
Harm none is a small portion of the Wiccan Rede which provides the "key moral system" for Wiccan Religions. Depending on the belief system the "Harm None" rule can be taken as a "magickal rule" or as a simple rule to live by. While I am Pagan, and not Wiccan, I tend to follw this rule as well. Obviously it's impossible to live a life where you never harm anything - unless you live in a cave that is, but it's a general idea meant to remind everyone that love and kindness will serve us better than hate and harm ever will! In many ways it's similar to the "Golden Rule" you find within Christian religions...

As I've always stated, I'm a Heathen. If you want to be specific it's Universalist Reconstructionist Germanic Heathen. It's similar to Asatru, but not as restricted, as Asatru, like Theodism, are specific to very narrow territories, while Germanic Heathenry is applicable to all the areas in between England (Theodism) and Asatru (the Scandanavian beliefs exported to Iceland where they flourished as their European counterparts were slaughtered).
