This is the "Daily Question" posted to the World Of Witches Museum FaceBook page today... I know what MY thoughts are and I'll share them in a bit, but I wanted to see what all of you thought! ALL are welcome! I was a little shocked to see all the different opinions among even the Pagans & Wiccans on their page... I figured here we could get even broader opinions!
What in your mind the difference between a Witch, Pagan, Wiccan, and other types of magickal worker?

I don't know much about witches, pagans, and wiccans, but here is what I think it is. I am probably way off so correct me if I am wrong.
Witch- someone who does spells but don't necessarily believe in a higher power.
Pagan- Someone who does not believe in a higher power.
Wiccan- Someone who does spells and believes in a higher power.

Pagan- an umbrella term for anyone who practices a non Abrahamic religion, mostly used for nature/Earth based religions, my be polytheistic
Wiccan- A practitioner of an organized nature based religion which may or may not include spellcraft, abides by the Wiccan Rede and the rule of threes, Karma etc
Witch- A practitioner of spellcraft who may or may not belong to a group/organization and may or may not fall under paganism in general.
Then, as they say... Wiccans are Pagans, but not all Pagans are Wiccan.... not all Witches are Wiccan... etc, etc, etc...

What in your mind the difference between a Witch--a practitioner of magick. Like being a Nurse or a Musician, something that describes something you DO, not something you believe.
Pagan/ Wiccan-- Two things that are very much the same. Pagans and wiccans have gods and goddesses, as well as sabbats and rituals. Pagans seldom perform magick. Wiccans are sometimes witchcraft practitioners but not all are.
And other types of magickal worker? No opinion here. Spells and incantations are the same to practitioners as prayers are to christians. The only thing that changes is whether you use a deity or not and which one you use.
