Wow! They've done it again!
A Christian writes as an expert on a religion to which she does not belong. Parts of our history are examined,(questionably)and others ignored. "Gardner knew Crowley" - yes, and Gardner showed Crowley his work before it was published. The two then disagreed on many points. Which came first?
"only one rule" - What about the Law "My law is love unto all beings"? and the Rule of threefold returns? and... oh, what's the point - people will believe this rubbish because this woman says it's true!
I suppose their having an actual Wiccan or even a different type of Pagan to comment never even occured to them. There again, independent thought isn't exactly encouraged, is it?

You weren't really expecting the truth about Wicca from a christian, were you?

Sad,sad,sad. The more these sick screwheads continue to try to keep the Burning Times burning the more anyone with any education can see through their little act.
When will they ever learn? Haven't they heard that being a bigot isn't cool anymore? I think they make these so called "discoveries" about people outside of their own "normal" world is to draw attention away from the fact that something really wrong is going on in their own house of worship. In one case, the child sex cases that are brought against the church. Maybe they should look into that? Of course if you have something as warped as forcing a child into sex games going on in your church, maybe that's why they believe everyone else is as messed up as they are.
