I'm sorry but I must rant. Being part of the Wiccan religion things can be tough sometimes especially from Christians. Now I am not talking about all Christians don't get me wrong there are plenty that actually understand. Being called a Satanist and being asked 10 million times you don't worship the devil do you?, has gotten quite old, again I won't bash the Satanist religion either I am just sick of the two being confused with each other.
Needless to say some of you need to be well informed of the difference and I am here to do that for you, as to not spam I have provided links to Wikipedia that explains all in great detail for the most part
So if you have a closed mind,now you are informed and perhaps a little less afraid of us Pagans, hopefully.
If any of you have any questions i'll be more than happy to answer curiosity never hurt anyone, just PM me.
That is just society! I grew up in a southern babtist town and my mother was Jewish! Talk about getting made fun of! Luckily dad was baptist so I had something to stand on! People are cruel when they don't understand! I feel that is your choice and not mine to judge ou upon!

Its true but its those kind of people that need to be informed. I feel sorry for anyone like that but your right it is society that makes them that way.
I never thought of Wicca as a religion, but more as a sort of society like lootyloot said. Thanks for posting that info mcgrom. I now know more about Wiccan traditions.
To each his own.
Hey, whatever works for you. I'm agnostic, so I don't care anyway.
I was raised Christian and still am, but throughout my life I have been open minded enough to understand there are differences. It's bad enough when a Satanist tries to explain what their religion is all about, but try being a Christian and explaining that, lol.
I admit I don't know anything, really, about Wicca, but my impression is that it's about nature and earth and rituals, not about God or gods.
Satanism is not about worshiping Satan, but rather a worship of yourself and your human instincts (giving into pleasure, etc.).
I think it's just ignorant people not willing to stand above their ignorance.
