It amazes some times what various Wicca books still assume.
So I’m on day 2 of the year and the day. They want my reaction to certain words dubbed Upsetting Words.
The words are: Wicca, Witchcraft, Earth Religion, Power, Occult, Magic, Ritual, Spell and Pagan.
My reaction: So? I’ve been a pagan all my life. These aren’t new. There’s a small percentage of the population that has a coniption when some of these words are mentioned but most people just give them a pass as normal.
Wicca has been around for at least 50 years. Most modern pagan movements have been around at least 40 if not longer. Why don’t we include children in training and what we do? Why are children excluded from group work, books etc.
The availablity on this material is ifantestemly small.
But back to the point…shouldn’t we have a population that has grown up pagan?
First of all, there is. But generally we are dismised as liers or over shadowed by the dick-size envy crowd who talks about ancient family practices that sound just like wicca.
But are they raising their children as pagans? Why the hell not? Sigh.
Any way the words….my reaction: And?
They are words. I use them in the connotaion that they are every day things for me. That’s all.
