I celebrate America's diversity and I appreciate our individual freedoms, but our respect for religious diversity is robbing us of some traditions.

While I am against Government / schools preaching religion, too much political correctness is passive aggressive violence. As a Wiccan Priest I believe that all my religion needs, is a halfway fair chance to prove our worth and the other religions will fall away or start competing with to make a better world.

Yes I think my religion is best just give us time and we will prove it.

I think best should be defined in the terms of Wiccans are not going an a holy war against people who happen to be a different religion. As long as we Wiccans can continue to practice that simple idea. Then, yes, best could describe our wonderful gentile religion.

Mischelle has proven to us that there is a war against xmas that is designed to topple the fragile Theocracy that we all spire to return to as the founding fathers wanted and designed from god. Yes. The DOMINION, once established entirely in the 2016 elections, the last of their type where complainers disbelievers and devilized farts are allowed to vote, will last for a thousand years. Our first order of business will be to deport all those who disbelieve and wont go along with all that is right and that is what we point out. Yes. The deporties will includer all funny speakers, naysayers, science freaks, bad actors and free food foreigners and old farts who wnt work but want everything anyway. NO MORE socialist security, devils medicare, obanacare, foodstamps and libraries filled with scientists lies about stuff we know is not rue. The schools that teach stuff nobody understands and who kick you out when you dont get it will be closed and the property used to house the malcontents on their way to the deportation shute. There will be a $15,000 charge for this which will make it the biggest new industry we have and will save the economy and provide side arms for young and old. Once we recognise that carbon dioxide is the natural plant food and that the internal combustion engine uses the oil mentioned in the bible to produce the holy gas and that all other energy sources are thus those of the antichrist, why then we will know what to do. Follow Michelle Bachmann. Teaparty 4ever. Give us our bible, our cigarettes and our guns and our freedom to do what needs to be done as we see it right now. Yes. Stop bothering the jobcreators as they are gods chosen. Yes. Amen

I don't think Wicca is going to emerge as some kind of leader as the result of the spiritual movement. A religion centered around initiation into the mysteries and priest/ess hood of service into witchcraft is just a little too intense for many. And that is the way it was intended, for those called that to be able to find it, instead of dying out.

I do, however, see many of the themes from Wicca appealing, as they already do, to a larger base of those searching for a better and more spiritual connection to the earth, nature, and the universe at large. There are lots of people who don't identify with any religious group, not even as generally as Neo-Pagan, Yoga or Buddhism or whatever who do practice meditation, feel there is a feminine aspect to the concept of god, like to acknowledge and celebrate the turn of the seasons and even the moon phases. I also see lots of people who do these things, feel a somewhat spiritual connection to earth, and so on doing some or all of these things under other labels or none. Even Unitarians do some of these things, although they still consider themselves Christians as their basic religion. It's really already happened in a large degree and will continue that way.

I like I've said am by no means Christian but....I don't think they should take the word "Easter" out of that Holiday, nor do I think they should take the word "Christ" out of Christmas. When we as Pagans and Wiccans speak of our Holidays, such as the recent Ostara, people don't expect us to change their names because it offends them, because it's really not the name, it's the people. Easter, Christmas, and Halloween are all Christian holidays, derived from Pagans of course, but since they've changed the names, and the meanings behind the holidays, they've made them they're own. Ostara, Yule, and Samhain are what we as Pagans celebrate, and we've made them our own. Holidays for other religions can all be respected without having to change their name or whatever on someone else's expense. It's simple, if it's not your religion, and not a Holiday you wish to celebrate, then shut up about it and leave it alone, because it has nothing to do with you
