What is Witchcraft/Wicca
"Witchcraft" is a religion which dates back more than
30,000 years. The origins go back to a time before
Christianity, Judism, Buddhism ect. Known as
the "Old Religion" or "Old ways", Witchcraft
(Also called Paganism), is a teaching which comes from
nature and it's movements, from animals, astrology
(Sun, Moon, stars...), to the integrity, truth, and
respect. As well as, holding sacred the life of the
earth, being we are all a part of, and all life's
deversity. From the Celtic, Druids, the Wiccans and
more, it is all Pagan Religion either part of whole.
What Wicca is not
We do not worship Satan or consort with Demons.
Satan is a Chrisitan creation and they can keep him.
We do not need a paranoid creation of supreme evil and
and eternal damnation to scare us into doing the right
thing and helping others. We choose to do the right thing
and love our brothers and sisters because it IS the right
thing and it feels good to do it.
The Wiccan Law
Bide the Wiccan Law ye must
in perfect love and perfect trust.
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill:
An' ye harm none, do what ye will.
What ye send forth come back to thee,
So ever mine the law of three.
Fallow this with mond and heart,
Merry meet, and Merry part
