I'm a Pagan
so you can take these comments with that in mind.
"Paganism" as described by the media (especially Daily Fail) does not really exist. Pagan means 'of the Pagaini (rural folk in Latin)' and is a category created during the transition of the Roman empire under Constantine to a Christian one. Christianity was an urabn religion, the rural folk kept the old beliefs - hence Pagans. The Saxon Word Heathan means the same thing.
Pagansim is mostly used as a category. It would be like calling all Jews, Muslims, Christians, and Toaists "Churchists" because they all have a formal church (or equivalent) lead organisation.
Pagan as used by the media here refers to Druids (who have religious leaders), and Heathans (or Odinists, people who follow the Saxon / Norse religion) who do not have a church or religious leadership, and Celts (whose beleifs are little known because they were destroyed by Romans and Saxons and Christians) and the few reamining Olympians (who no longer have much of a formal church system).
There is no 'Pagan' text I am aware of that validates child abuse. Reference to Pagan leaders of old also means talking about morality in 900AD - not a time when Christianity can claim any high ground.
Alester Crowley was a self-appointed religious leader, but that doesn't give him the right to speak for any religion but his own; he is no Pagan leader.
As for the OP - "Pagan Rituals" means neo-Druidism. Lumping every pagan into this category is false, just like calling all Christians Catholics. Heathans have no specific rituals - and members are not compelled to do anything for thier Gods (who, they view, largely ignore humanity).
Most Druids work hard to keep alive a few traditions that Christianity did not adopt for itself (as it did with Imbolc and Yule = Cristmans [Jesus was NOT born in December], Samhain = Hallowe'en, Easter [Eostre=Heathan goddess of fertility, hence Easter Eggs]); such as summer and winter solstices.
No doubt, a tiny few use anything they can as a cover for their own vile behaviour - a recent debates with musilim groomers, Rasputin's orgies, the Mansun family, and so on. None of which has anything at all to do with their religion.
