Arrivals, members, it makes no difference. If they are attending a ritual in our Coven, they are already members. This is not a specator sport, everyone participates, and there is no audience.<quoted text>
Well, I have explained myself since you focused on the word "member" but you will keep on and on and on. You knew what I meant Bitner. Let me try it "this way" ... how about new "arrivals." THERE ... does THAT suit your royal witchiness?
What you are doing is trying to get around the fact that we don't proselytize, and so you're trying to find a sneaky way of expressing that. I do understans.
Wiccans don't proselytize. We don't seek out converts. We do not tell people that they should become Wiccan because Wicca is the best religion. We do not say "you should come to our Coven" as, say some Christians, will say to everyone they meet "You should come to my church". People seek Wicca. That means they have already decided to leave whatever religion they were in previously.
And no, books of information geared toward those already Wiccan, or any who might be interested, is not proselytizing.
