  • I've never heard of it being illegal but it wouldn't surprise me in the least in some parts of the country or world. People fear what they don't understand so lashing out at a belief system so close to the forbidden Biblical "witchcraft" would make sense, to some anyway. IMO, completely idiotic frame of mind.

  • wow...ive never heard that it was illegal. i dont see how it could be. everyone in america is allowed to worship whoever/whatever they want so long as it doesnt break any laws.

  • LOL... she is probably associating animal sacrifice w Wicca or Witchcraft in general... Wiccians don't sacrifice animals... That's the only thing I can think of???

  • It wouldn't surprise me if it was illegal in some states. People are always afraid of what they aren't familiar with. On a side note, it is illegal for atheists to hold a public office in quite a few states.

  • It cannot be made illegal in the United States. See the First Amendment.

  • In the Nevada state constitution there are still laws from way back when that prohibit the practice of witchcraft. I don't know about other states, but I have made myself familiar with the laws regarding my religion in my state.

    Although the state has a law against it, it is overruled by the federal laws and the US constitution. As soon as Wicca became a religion recognized by the US government/military the first amendment protected it...
