The American Academy of Religion has nothing directly to do with Brigit. What it has to do with is promoting understanding and tolerance between religions, and as such, has everything to do with her. Both the Goddess Brigit and Saint Brighid have reconciliation and caring in their toolkits, and both the religions of the Goddess and Christianity are capable of, and in need of, extending tolerance and understanding.
"Consort with them in kindness, for if ye hate them it may happen that ye hate a thing wherein Allah hath placed much good." (An-Nisa': 19)
