Question: Religious persecutions. . . in your opinion. . . is it faith specific or equal percecution? All I am saying is I believe that no religion is strictly mainstream and varies due to country of origin and where you are today. There is news about present day witch hunts that has inspired this question. Throughout the ages witch hunts have raged, every so many years they begin up again and so the circle goes. I see that as this is an issue, Wiccan/Pagan/what have you are not the only religion undergoing persecution. Yes, they are the target in recent news, but do Christians not undergo persecution in countries where they are not the mainstream? What about those of Hindu, Bahi (sp? sorry), and Buddhist faiths? Do they not face persecution? In some countries do you not think that you would be persecuted due to your religion. . .

"readings, oujia board, tarot cards" Really? I thought "atheists" didn't believe in that crap... Answer by samurai_chica
Actually, this one does. I read tarot and do past life readings. The unconditional love that we all expect from our parents just isn't there sometimes. And that's sad, but it doesn't end our lives. We can still work and raise a family, etc. And I don't think I would complain about persecution, even when the christians here are telling me I'm headed for hell or that what I do as a witch is evil. If my government was persecuting me, that would be different. Our government leaders considers atheists to be non-human, non-citizens. Atheists still have to fight for the right to be themselves, but they don't have to DIE for it. But some people do. That's perspective.
