Sockness and religion

I had listed Sockness as Hindu because he claimed to be a Hindu god, and attributed Chris' goddess powers to a Hindu god's blessing. That he does not belong to any recognisable Hindu sect, but has his own set of arcane rituals, is no more a problem than that Chris even in his Baptist days would employ curse-ye-ha-me-has. As a corroboratory evidence, Sockness is also in the far right, and it is known that some of those will convert to the original Aryan religion. 'Neo-pagan' would suggest either nature-lovers or ancient Celt/German LARPing, not necessarily Sockness' occultic practises. ChanOfTartary (talk) 00:41, 24 August 2019 (UTC)

"Pagan" refers to any non-mainstream religions so regardless of any political affiliations, so as long as Sockness doesn't adhere to any of the mainstream stuff, he is still a pagan. Also, claiming to be a messiah or god of a religion doesn't mean you have to follow that religion. Jim Jones, the founder of the Peoples Temple claimed to be the Buddha, yet we don't consider him a Buddhist, but as a Christian cult leader. -Larry the Larryhog (talk) 16:39, 24 August 2019 (UTC)
