  • Is the religion known as “Wicca” evil or Satanic?

    Question by 323 guy: Is the religion known as “Wicca” evil or Satanic?
    I do not mean to offend any Wiccans. Its just that I want to know more about it. From the outside, it appears to be beautiful and peaceful. Some people talk bad about it, but it could be that they misunderstand it. Tell me more.

    No, i think they’re more about getting in touch with nature.
    -it’s witchcraft (true)
    -it’s satanic (false)
    -it’s evil (false)
    -it’s pagan (true.. although some wiccans are monotheistic)

    Question by ELLOELLO: do you think my teacher is racist by saying the religion paganism is not real?
    my class is studying all seven religions and i went up to her and asked her “what about paganism” and she said “oh forget about that one,its not real”.does any one get offended by that?

    Answer by GodBlessAtheism
    no

    offensive it might be.
    but its not racist.

    pagans are not a race

    maybe she meant that its not a real religion, rather than its not real (true).
    she obviously knows that at least 6 of the 7 of the other religions are not real, and has no problem teaching them.

  • Christians and Pagans Agree, Wicca Emerging as America’s Third Religion

    (PRWEB) April 21, 2005

    Earth Day celebrations are seen as a way to recognize the need to save and protect Mother Earth. For some that image is not simply a slogan or phrase but the center of their worship and religious life. Known as Wiccans, aka Witches and Pagans, Nature worshippers are becoming more numerous and their concepts are emerging to challenge traditional rules of society based on biblical law. They are emerging to become a major force in spiritual communities, having increasing number of adherents, and expecting the same rights and privileges as Christians and other faith practices of the United States.

    Steve Wohlberg, in his book the Hour of the Witch, was the first to state the conclusion that we are now in a turning point and that Wicca would emerge as the third largest faith in America and would directly challenge Christian ideals of church and state. This is collaborated by leading Pagan leader and researcher, Phyliss Currott stating the Wiccan community is doubling in size every 18 months. That is a predicted future community of twenty million or more members in the United States by 2012. By both Christian and Pagan standards that would be a significant shift in American society.

    Wolhberg continues “Witchcraft is growing so fast on high school and college campuses that Wiccan visionaires are rushing to establish their own schools.” This is meant as a warning to Christian parents. Chas Cliftion, editor of Pomegranate: The International Journal Of Pagan Studies has a collaborating statement: “We (Pagans) are like a third world country that can’t put up enough elementary schools fast enough.”. Pagans and Christians agree that Wicca is becoming a major religious educational force in America.

    In desperate need of training and trained teachers, many turn to WitchSchool.com on the internet. This is not a small informational site but a full fledged school with over 130,000 students, a staff of over 300, and every online tool of any major university. According to the President Davron Michaels, “The school is a important part of the emerging healthy community that can provide the needed training for services and duties required of our members. Right now that mission includes helping the over one new hundred students a day that join us to get their quality understanding of the basics of Wicca. We are providing education at every level for thousands of Witches world wide. It is a sacred trust that we are faced with everyday.’

    So is it possible that this Earth Day, that we are seeing the seeds to a future community, deeply spiritual and dedicated to simply loving Mother Earth. Can America’s Third Religion be Wicca?

    It is something to ponder.

  • Is Zoroastrianism a Dharmic Religion?

    Question by Gio: Is Zoroastrianism a Dharmic Religion?
    It is, after all, very closely related to Hinduism as well as having its own concept of “Dharma”, which is called Dharma too!
    Just so everyone knows, Vedic (Pre-Hindu) Religion and Zoroastrianism share the common root religion of Proto-Indo-Iranian (not Mesopotamian, though Zoroastrianism could have been influenced by that). What I’m asking is whether this makes Zoroastrianism classifiable as a Dharmic Religion or not.

    Best answer:

    Answer by Geezah
    Eh, I suppose you could say so. It depends on how much you want to stretch the definition of “Dharmic religion”.
