A Facebook friend of mine has been posting some spectacular photos of sacred sites in the UK where she lives, and I notice that many of them have pre-Christian roots. Yes, they were sacred before they were Christian. What is more, the people in charge of those sites appear to recognize and respect that!
In much of the rest of the world, where the original peoples are strong end populous enough, the pre-Christian historic sites and burial grounds are treated with respect. It is in North America and Australia where aboriginal sacred sites are ignored or outright disrespected.
Given what I have learned, I don’t want the consequences. We need to learn to recognize and respect sacred sites, as if they were our own because they are!
