Since many Neopagan beliefs do not require exclusivity, some Neopagans practice other faiths in parallel. Since eclectic Neopagans take a rather un-dogmatic religious stance, and sometimes see no one as having authority to deem a source "apocryphal", Neopaganism has been notably prone to fakelore, especially in recent years, as information and misinformation alike have been spread on the Internet and in print media ref.: http://thebarefootkitchen.com.s12128.gridserver.com/books/celtic-sacrifice-pre-christian-ritual-and-religion.
