What are your honest views of Paganism/Witches?

I personally find them all a little ridiculous but each to their own I guess - perhaps it's because I'm uneducated about them but it's a little too wishy washy for me.

How about y'all?

  • I prefer pagans and wiccans to hard core Christians, honestly. I'm not a fan of organized religion at all though, it's just not for me.

  • I think they are a little cooky, but not in a BAD way. More of an exentric entertaining sort of way, which is how I think of my goth friends and hippie friends. :)

  • I am learning about them on CM and do not know anyone personally who practices the beliefs, but do find their beliefs/practices interesting

  • I think those of us who choose to be Pagan or Wiccan have a hard row to hoe at times. Most people *don't* understand what we believe, or they assume based on TV/Movies/rumors what we believe. Sometimes, our beliefs run afoul of what's popular where we live,and we face persecution or prejudice over it.

    We get thought of as wierd, or kooky or quirky, or if people are kind, "misguided". When they're unkind, we get fired from our jobs, spat on, and our cars/houses vandalized. (Yes, I HAVE, in fact, had that happen.)

    But you can't judge one Pagan or Wiccan by the behavior of one Pagan any more than you can judge all Christians by the behavior of one Christian. Or one Muslim. Or one Jew.

    And I think the whole world would be a nice more civilized place if people attempted that, instead of tarring everyone in a group with the same brush.

  • I feel they are the more honest of people you will meet online or in person.

    I feel many (not all) Christians are too "wishy washy".

    I am atheist.

  • I think this question is wishy washy.

    They are powerful. They know what they are doing. They are not "wishy washy" at all.

  • I've never known a pagan or wiccan, but have learned a lot about a few different paths, I think it's all quite fascinating. If I didn't feel so connected to my own religion I might would be pagan.

  • I think they're following their path, just as we are following ours - they've got what makes sense to them, just like I have what makes sense to me. :)
