The battle between Traditionalists and the forces of darkness has been raging since The Fall. Those who oppose tradition believe that the forces of hedonism and selfishness can uproot the foundations of civilization. In Western pagan and Christian civilization, homosexual behavior has always been looked upon as being a degenerate behavior. While the sickness and perversion of homosexuality have been allowed to flourish alongside the other sins of a dying culture in times of great moral failing, Western men both in the pagan and Christian eras have understood that homosexuality is an unnatural perversion that is a symptom of the moral rot of a society.
Ancient Viking pagan traditions would actually bind homosexuals in rope and rocks and throw them into the bog when they were caught in the act of homosexuality. Men who did not get married or were suspected of being homosexuals were referred to as fuðflogi and were socially excluded. Men were called upon to have children and to create strong traditional family bonds, which being a homosexual did not allow. Viking communities had slurs against homosexuality and it was viewed in many regions as being an antisocial disorder.
