I chose this because it describes Wicca in a summary. I see Wicca as a form of feminism because of religious freedom, based on ones own interpretation. I think about how women used religion to as a way to deal with sexism in their everyday lives without organized religions.
Pagan This is how I believe it should be for all humanity. Not hatred, not bloodshed, not the constant threat of war. No matter the religion or other differences we all bleed the same, 99.9% of us have the capacity to love, we all have hurts and joys. It is the greed of man or a religion that claims to be the ONLY one true religion that is mostly is the cause of the worst problems we all face. Is that what any of our "Gods" really want for mankind to survive? For our world to survive?
There you have it. Never fully understood why humans had to be so cruel to those that are different then themselves. It doesn't matter who or what they are, all that matters is what they do with the gifts they have.
What is Wicca P4 A coven or an individual need not be affiliated with CoG in order to validly practice the religion. But CoG is the largest single public Wiccan organization, and it is cross-Traditional (i.e. non-denominational).
What is Witchcraft P3 There were times in history when many women were burnt to the stake for practicing witchcraft. All this was largely due to superstition. Witchcraft is actually a ‘craft’ and not a religion. The religion that the witches follow is called Wicca. Since the basic principles and beliefs of witchcraft are also followed in Wicca, therefore, witchcraft is generally identified with religion.
Sometimes I think I'm Pagan but I don't know how you know. But I do think this is beautiful. I think I'm just a human being who believes in the natural order of life and doesn't mind other people believing what they want as long as they don't judge or hurt others. Why can't "human" be a religion????
