Can Christianity and Wicca be successfully combined?
Question by prairiecrow: Can Christianity and Wicca be successfully combined?
I’ve seen people asking questions about combining Christianity and Wicca, which frankly has me scratching my head. Wicca celebrates the Goddess and Her Beloved Consort and the frankly sexual nature of Their love for one another. Wicca is a religion in which every trained member is considered one of the clergy, and which has no clergy/laity distinction per se. And we lack any concept equivalent to original sin, which renders the sacrifice of Jesus meaningless in a Wiccan context.
Well… that’s my opinion. So my questions are:
1) What’s your opinion on the issue of combining Christianity and Wicca? and
2) Why do you think that people would seek to create something like “Christian Wicca” in the first place? Is it a case of people saying “Wicca” when in fact they mean “witchcraft” (a completely different thing)? Or is it something else?
Many thanks to everybody who takes the time to respond.
