I still am not happy with how the SPLC refers to things but this could have been worse:

At this point, federal court documents say Doyle and Chaney III “and others known and unknown to the FBI ascribe to a white supremacy extremist version of the Asatru faith.” It is a form of Odinism — a neo-Pagan religion that reveres various Norse gods, including Thor.

I have many friends who honor Odin but would counsel people to watch for the use of the term Odinist and ask the person a few questions to determine their interests. I certainly would not trust a stated Wotanist on the face of things.

This is the first time I have seen the Aryan Brotherhood mentioned directly.

    At least the SPLC qualifies by using the term “version” now… if only they’d add “minority” to it, too…
