What is the fastest growing religion in the United States?  If you said Christianity, you would be way off.  In fact, the most recent numbers show that Christianity is in a serious state of decline in America.  If you said Islam, you are much closer to a correct answer.  Islam is the fastest growing major religion in the United States.  But there is a faith that is growing even faster than Islam.  It is called Wicca, and it is currently growing at an astounding pace.  Wicca emerged as a faith in the middle of the 20th century, but the origins of many Wiccan practices actually go back for thousands of years, and some researchers believe that certain aspects of Wicca can actually be traced all the way back to ancient Babylon.  According to Wikipedia, Wicca “is a modern pagan, witchcraft religion”.  It has been estimated that the number of Americans that are Wiccans is doubling every 30 months, and at this point there are more than 200,000 registered witches and approximately 8 million unregistered practitioners of Wicca.  And it is important to remember that Wicca is just one form of witchcraft.  There are many other “darker” forms of witchcraft that are also experiencing tremendous growth.

This is a trend that didn’t just start a few years ago.  In fact, according to Wikipedia, Wicca experienced an average annual growth rate of 143 percent in the United States between 1990 and 2001…

The American Religious Identification Survey gives Wicca an average annual growth of 143% for the period 1990 to 2001 (from 8,000 to 134,000 – U.S. data / similar for Canada & Australia).  According to The Statesman Anne Elizabeth Wynn claims “The two most recent American Religious Identification Surveys declare Wicca, one form of paganism, as the fastest growing spiritual identification in America“.

A press release from Witch School also claims that Wicca is the fastest growing religion in America, and that organization projects that Wicca will soon become the third largest religion in the United States after only Christianity and Islam…

Wicca is America’s Fastest Growing religion, and it is anticipated by some Christian religious experts that it will become the third largest religion in the United States early in the 21st century, behind only Christianity and Islam.

Witch School claims that it has trained more than 200,000 students by itself so far.  And of course Witch School is just one of thousands of prominent occult websites on the Internet.

A Christian Post article from a few years ago claimed that the number of Wiccans in America is doubling every 30 months…

“Wicca is the fastest-growing religion in America, set to be the third largest religion by 2012,” claims Marla Alupoaicei, who co-wrote the recently released book “Generation Hex” with fellow Christian author Dillon Burroughs.

“The numbers of adherents are doubling every 30 months,” she says.

Furthermore, every major city in the United States has networks of Wiccans, adds Burroughs.

“Certain parts of the country, such as the Pacific Northwest, the mountain states (New Mexico and Colorado) and areas near Salem, Mass., are the strongest in the U.S.,” he says. “However, I live in Tennessee and have found pockets of Wiccans in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia to interview. I didn’t have to travel far or even outside of the so-called Bible belt to find Wiccans.”

Are you starting to get the picture?

There is a huge fascination with the occult in the United States right now.  We can see this on television, in our movies and in popular novels.

But this is not just happening in America.  According to the Guardian, there is also an explosion of interest in witchcraft going on in the UK…

When Ryan Murphy, the creator of American Horror Story, announced that the third season of the American TV series would focus on witches, he was riding the crest of a wave. Not since the 1990s – the era of Buffy’s geek goddess, Willow Rosenberg, and a scowling Fairuza Balk in The Craft – have witches been so much in demand.

In the young-adult section of bookshops, shelves that recently groaned under the weight of tales of tormented vampires and lovelorn werewolves, are now stuffed with stories of witchcraft and magic, from Ruth Warburton’s much-praised Winter Trilogy to Jessica Spotswood’s Cahill Witch Chronicles. Lower down the age range, last month the most recent in Jill Murphy‘s long-running Worst Witch series was published, while among the predictions for this Christmas’s bestselling toys are the Bratz spinoff, House of Witchez. For adults, next year will mark the climax of Deborah Harkness’s All Souls Trilogy, centring on the relationship between a vampire and a feisty American witch.

And right now is one of the most important times of the year for Wiccans.  According to Raiders News Network, the Wiccan year begins just after Halloween…

According to the Celtic Almanac, the Wiccan year begins following Halloween. The seasonal scenario that follows is reminiscent of the earth goddess and dying-god cults of ancient civilizations.

* Yule is on December 20 and celebrates the goddess giving birth to the Sun god.

* The next season is Imbolc and marks the recovery of the goddess after giving birth to the god.

* The Spring Equinox (Ostara) marks the first day of Spring. The goddess awakes as the days grow longer and the light overtakes the darkness. The goddess fills the earth with fertility.

* Beltane celebrates the transformation of the boy god into manhood. He is filled with lust for the goddess and lies with her in the grass. The earth becomes pregnant with her vitality. Crops begin to grow. Flowers bloom.

* Litha (midsummer) arrives as the powers of nature escalate. The Earth Mother is filled with fertility. Wiccans practice numerous kinds of magic during this season.

* The next season is Lughnasadh, the time of the first harvest. The Wiccan god begins to lose his strength as the Sun rises higher each day. The nights grow longer. The god begins to die.

* Mabon is the completion of the harvest. The Wiccan god suffers death, draws back into darkness, and waits to be reborn at Yule.

Wiccans were celebrating this holiday (Samhain) long before anyone else started celebrating it.  This year Americans will spend about 6 billion dollars on Halloween celebrations, but most of them have absolutely no idea that many “Halloween traditions” can be traced directly back to ancient Wiccan practices.  The following is from a recent Business Insider article

Black cats, spiders, and bats are all Halloween symbols because of their spooky history and ties to Wiccans. All three were thought to be the familiars of witches in the middle ages, and are often associated with bad luck.

Bats are even further connected to Halloween by the ancient Samhain ritual of building a bonfire, which drove away insects and attracted bats.

As a Christian, I do not celebrate Halloween.  I do not want anything to do with witchcraft, black magic, white magic, vampires, werewolves, wizards, warlocks, zombies, evil spirits, ancient pagan religions or anything else along those lines.

But more Americans than ever are embracing the darkness, and each year this comes to a fever pitch on Halloween night.  For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “The Dark Side Of Halloween: The Kind Of Stuff That Real Life Nightmares Are Made Of“.

    Everything about Wicca is designed specifically to scare conservative Christians.
    Wicca is completely and utterly out of line with pre-Christian paganism, rather, their “religion” follow Harry Potter, Disney films and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    Wicca more of a trolling technique than a religion.

    “Wiccans” are insane, attention whoring, self-injuring 16 year old girls that are very easy to **** off.
    Wicca has only one rule: An it harm none, do what ye will, they are really hippies trying to be goths.
    Wiccan is expanding fast because it recruites the stupid, the ugly, the vegans, the dykes and other trashy lumpenprols.

    • SafetyViking

      I fully support teenage girls dancing around naked. I’ll bring the shiny rocks…

      • Hammerstrike

        Considering how many of them look, your eyes would prolly be bleeding from you clawing at them in despaire.

        • Zombiewitch

          And you people believe in a talking snake! Try to think beyond your distorted biblical mindset

      • serafina

        Legitimate Wiccan covens will not permit underage members. Nor do they permit sexual leering at ANY member of any age. You would be swiftly shown the door.

    • jaxon64

      I agree..the vast, vast majority of these “wiccans” are just playing dress up. They are in the same ranks as those people who claim to be vampires by getting their eye-teeth sharpened ( or implants), wearing capes and eye liner…simply ridiculous…

      • Hammerstrike

        Have you heard/read of furries and otherkins?

        • serafina

          As a response, those are not a part of Wicca.

    • serafina

      What is your source when you speak of Wicca? Everything you’ve said is completely at odds with the Wiccan religion and every Wiccan I know. The only factual statement is that witchcraft is not a religion. This is true, witchcraft is a practice. Wicca, however, IS a religion that includes the practice of witchcraft. Your posts sounds very sour grapes indeed. I’d be interested in knowing which coven bounced you.

  • Tim

    “As a Christian, I do not celebrate Halloween.”

    I’m with you. What disturbs me, though, is that many professing Christians do participate in Halloween. Last week I took a day trip up to the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina to see the Fall foliage. During my trip I saw a number of churches that were advertising Halloween programs on their signs. There’s just a lack of discernment among so many professing Christians today.

    • Hammerstrike

      Christians should also know that “wiccans”, far from being witches or wizards, are mererly parodies of themselves.

    • ceci

      I give out chick tracks on halloween. It is a great way to turn the devils night on its head and spread the good news.

      • stingray

        thats good

    • MelArk

      I’m guessing we can thank the success of the Harry Potter series for much of the renewed interest in turning “non-Muggle”…the storyline in her books is entertaining…but that’s where a line should be drawn. It’s a work of fiction. As an adult, I can appreciate this. But when kids see they’re able to emulate the fantastical world they read about and see in the movies, and the adults around them give them the green light to do so, there’s another new generation of kids turning away from Christianity.

      Now, I imagine my above comment will insight the usual “what’s so great about being a Christian” lines from the haters out there, but unless you are a true Christian, it’s hard to understand the ramifications of the exponential growth of a competing religion (or what I would consider a false religion), such as Wicca. I see it as a threat to a society my ancestors built on this continent since they started arriving here over three hundred years ago…just one of many threats plaguing our nation today.

      I understand and respect the concept of ‘freedom of religion’ but I am not happy to see other religions polluting my religion. Again, I know there’s going to be some people that don’t like to hear the kind of language I just used in the last sentence I wrote; however, I have every right to say it and mean it. And to keep my porch lights off tomorrow night.

      • Hammerstrike

        LOL, “wicca” a threat? Great majority of “wiccans” comes to realize they arte being silly, only ones over 30 are males who believes they are unicornes or some fat females on welfare who believes her cats are her “children”.

        If anything is dangerous, it would be taking “wicca” seriously.

        • Jsusnme

          I won’t get into personal experience here. But may I suggest this book, “He Came to Set the Captives Free,” by Rebbeca Brown, MD The only thing I found to be incorrect is their comment that evil spirits can read your mind. Yah says no, only He, GOD reads your mind and heart. However, we’re all pretty readable on the surface. All they have to know is what to look for.

          • Hammerstrike

            Well, I heard from a reportage that one sign of demonic possession according to an inquisition text was mind-reading and seeing through things and it was funny how they tried to “explain” away how middle-age people could come up with such ideas.

            Some more reading on the subject of exorcism, basically the priest have to be fine with their past, if they don´t the subject will come up during the exorcism session.

            So yeah they can, relying on the bible to be the 100% correct word of the Almight is trusting in the honesty, knowledge and goodwill of its numerous, human authors.

          • Tom Tom

            God can created spinning planets in perfect mathematical precision but he can’t create a book by influencing the very people he created? Ha, right.

          • serafina

            So. Which Wiccan group gave you the boot?

        • Native American Cynic

          Because believing in the flying, sexist guy in the sky seems so intelligent. You sure you’re not a hypocrite?

          • Hammerstrike

            Oh, I stated I was a christian?

            I am not mocking a religion in this case, wicca does not deserve such a label, wicca is just a sad joke.

          • serafina

            You are clearly ignorant of the Wiccan religion, or you would never make such a statement. Though I have problems myself with pop Wicca, the Wiccan religion as it was envisioned in the New Forest region in the mid twentieth century was a rich and complex religious system. And yes, I’m well aware Gerald Gardner was a mason and a womanizer. Old news.

          • Tom Tom

            how is God sexist when he’s not a man or a woman?

        • Mithrandir Greyholm

          Everything you said about Harry Potter books being fiction can and does apply to the bible!

          • Tom Tom

            not at all.

      • Mithrandir Greyholm

        Young people are turning away from Christianity because their parents who practice it are nuts!

        • Tom Tom

          any more than Hindus, Mithrandir? children always do things their parents won’t want them to do.

      • serafina

        How is any other religion “polluting” yours? And what gives you the right to proclaim any other religion false? Or that Wicca is in any way a threat to society? Your post bespeaks abject ignorance about the Wiccan religion. A religion which btw supports YOUR right to practice Christianity if you choose.

        Before you malign other religions you should go to the trouble of doing real research.

    • “What disturbs me, though, is that many professing Christians do participate in Halloween.”

      What disturbs me is how many professing Christians participate in Caesar-worship and promote Christo-Fascism as a way to turn non-believers towards Christ through the force of law. Maybe this is what has turned so many away from the idea of being Christian…

      • Tim

        Caesar-worship? Christo-Fascism? Can you please explain what those are?

        • When liberal progressive Christians call upon politicians to steal more from others so as to give politicians the chance to buy votes by appearing to be charitable with other people’s money, then those Christians are engaging in Christo-Fascism.

          When conservative Christians call upon politicians to pass laws that regulate the non-criminal behavior of others, leading to a de facto state of slavery for those others, then they are engaging in Christo-Fascism.

          When they call upon the government to solve the world’s problems and swear a socialist loyalty oath to a Fascist government and one of its venerated icons during their worship services, then they are engaging in Caesar worship…

          • Tim

            I’m a Christian who believes in separation of church and state. I do not vote in any elections–federal, state, local. For the most part, I am opposed to government handouts. There are some members of society who genuinely need help, and we therefore should always have a safety net. I don’t believe the government can solve the world’s problems, and I therefore don’t exalt any political figures. The world’s problems are the result of what lies in the heart of depraved human beings. So, sorry pal, you simply can’t lump all Christians into one of those silly categories.

          • “So, sorry pal, you simply can’t lump all Christians into one of those silly categories.”

            Sorry, pal, I didn’t, so you defame me when you say I did. You’re not supposed to “bear false witness…”

          • Tim

            Grow up, dude.

          • Obviously you are part of the problem and not of the solution.

            No, what he is doing is projecting all of the left´s own intentions on christians.

          • Hammerstrike

            Thanks but since you have already spewed leftist propaganda, won´t you utter some right-wing propaganda too, to keep an equilibrium on things?

          • Jsusnme

            Then you are a Christian who lives in America, but thinks and acts like a Russian, where separation of church and state is actually in their constitution, and where they don’t want their citizens to be political or religious.

          • Hammerstrike

            “and where they don’t want their citizens to be political or religious.”

            And how well have that worked?

          • serafina

            Separating Church and State is at the heart of America. Our founding fathers could EASILY have made this a Christian nation and went out of their way to avoid it because they saw first hand what had happened in Europe and wanted to avoid it. Americans have the right to be political and/or religious if they so choose. THAT is what separates our way of thinking from the Soviets.

          • Jsusnme

            This is what Ayn Rand hated with what she saw with huge population of Christian sects thinking it was a good thing for govt to help those in need. She didn’t hate Christians from what I gather, but this particular communal belief that was ever growing. She saw the train wreck coming; like the one she from which she escaped by coming to America.

          • If you leave it to Caesar to maintain a “safety net,” there will be those he will allow to use it as a “hammock,” while for others it will be used as a “dragnet” where we’ll all end up hanging out to dry…

          • Hammerstrike

            Rather, it was something she took advantage of before coming to the United States.

          • serafina

            Can you explain?

          • Mithrandir Greyholm

            She hated Christians and all forms of religion!

          • serafina

            She was an atheist and she saw religion as an institution that enslaved people’s minds. To say she “hated” Christians is untrue. She saw them as being in philosophical and logical error. In truth I have seen more hatred directed at Rand than she EVER exhibited toward anyone else.

          • Tom Tom

            she was a practicing satanist.

          • serafina

            OMFG. Rand was no Satanist. She had no use for any religious concepts at all. She was, however, the most maligned philosopher in history.

    • Rinny

      God is the love of my life. I do not go one day without him. I am a Christian and I am sick and tired of people using Halloween as an evil day. I was BORN on Halloween. How do you think this makes me feel ? Does anyone care ? No they do not. Halloween is what society makes it to be. It can be good and it can be evil. I hate being born on this day it feels like a curse hanging over my head. I make Halloween in to a good thing. Seeing the children smile with excitement at my door. I also see it as a way to fight off the evil forces in this world. I am sick of all the negativity ! I have never had a bad birthday or a bad Halloween. My birthday has always been full of fun and joy !

    At least its not Satanism. Although if you are not a practising satanist, but follow its tenets through indoctrination by mass media etc, then is there a difference?

    • Hammerstrike

      Of course there is a difference.

      At least the true satanists makes a decision and think they have a master, the indoctrined masses makes no decisions of their own, lamestream medias and society does that for them, thought that doesn´t prevent them from believing they are free.
      If there was such thing as souls they either wouldn´t have any or have souls akin to trash cans, empty except for garbage and mold.

    • prestodo

      I hate to break it to you, but wicca and witchcraft are veiled forms of satanism.

        That is a Christian perspective. Wiccans, not being Christians, don’t have Satan is their theology or belief structure. He’s all yours.

    Anyone bothering to do any research whatsoever would know that the so-called xtian ‘holidays’ of easter and xmas are also derived from ‘pagan’ holidays, just as most of the xtian religion itself is stolen from Egyptian myth…

    Q: What ancient deity was born on December 25th to a virgin, traveled with 12 disciples, was crucified, dead for three days, then resurrected?

    Was it Horus, Attis, Mithra, Krishna, Dionysus, or Jesus?

    A: ALL OF THEM! This is the same regurgitated myth that’s been around for thousands of years.

    Get over it.

    • Rastus

      Yaushua was not born on Dec. 25th. The early Roman church selected this day for reasons you can research yourself. Christ The Savior was born several months earlier.

      What I can’t “get over” is that you and people like you (agnostics, atheists,…) spend a lot of time, money, frustration etc. trying to convince the public that you are injured (Those physically sick from the display of the “ground zero cross”) and offended by others expressing belief in something you insist does not exist. Get over it.

      Your misuse of the verse from Matthew, where Jesus states this is taken completely out of context. In the same book, in Matthew 18:15-17, Jesus says to confront people about their sins and, article-appropriate, even points out paganism, in verse 17, as something to be despised. I hope that you and other misusers of the Lord’s words, will take the time to educate yourselves. This proves that you are either an atheist or not a well-trained Christian. Please do yourself a favor and educate yourself in order to edify others before they misquote the One True God.

      • Princess Lolly!

        So let’s just review your reply. You know nothing about me, my beliefs, or even if I am who this handle says I am. For all you know, I could be your next door neighbor using a fake online identity. For all you know, I’m your minister/preacher/rabbi/imam/priest, just waiting to see how the congregates react.

        Proof is a thing that derives from facts. Evidence.

        This is the interwebs…worse, a comment thread. At BEST, all anyone here can come close to doing is establishing credibility. At worst, it is just trolling around.

        Somehow, you automagically have converted a 4-word statement into an dossier on my education, religion, knowledge and expertise in my religion, your religion, or any religion on earth. My brain would have to be gumby to wrap itself around the method of justification that you must have used to fabricate such conclusions and then purport them as “proof”.

        I can only feel compassion for someone who thinks as you have written. Where you could have outstretched a hand in dialogue, or turned thoughts introspective, instead the choice was made to posture, degrade and affect some sort of superiority and pass even further judgement.

        For all you know, I could be the person on the verge of faith, looking for that one sign. I could be a teen, just trying to understand and find answers.

        You don’t know anything about me. And where you could have been engaging, you weren’t. Where you could have opened dialogue, you didn’t.

        I only find myself asking, “If you could choose between bashing others, and their beliefs, or finding a way to showcase the wonderful things about your own….why would anyone ever choose the former?”

        You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

        The vile are ever prone to detect the faults of others, though they be as small as mustard seeds, and persistently shut their eyes against their own, though they be as large as Vilva fruit.

        The gentleman calls attention to the good points in others; he does not call attention to their defects. The small man does just the reverse of this.

        If we find fault with others
        We ourselves are also in the wrong.
        By getting rid of this habit of fault-finding
        We cut off a source of defilement.

        Correct your bodies first, each one of you!
        Correct your minds first, each one!

    Excellent article Michael! This is definitely the course America is on. We have rejected the living God and replaced Him with idol worship in music, TV, careers, wealth, fame, pride, greed and lust of the flesh and eyes. Evil is advancing quickly in our land. However, evil will not prevail against the Lord God Almighty!

    People or Christians, should I say, have a diminished concept or understanding of God mainly because churches are not teaching and preaching His Sovereignty and Majesty.

      Not to be rude, but this nation was never a Christian nation. The founding fathers’ very first right was a freedom to and from religion.

        Not a clue, Lance. All of them went to church. The very first amendment says no religious rights will be prohibited:

        Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Wicca is yet another re-packaged, watered-down pop culture version of the occult practices the elite are heavily into. It’s there for conditioning people into thinking occult practices are ok, fun, and harmless And guess what? They’re not going to reveal their ancient occult knowledge in an $8 book you get at Barnes and Noble. Btw, .Gerald Gardner was a mason.

    I think this is the part where Flounder Church chimes in, carries on about how only his church has the answer, insists that Baptists are all going to hell, advocates a return to Prohibition (which worked so well in the 1920s), claims that true Christians can’t be members of the Libertarian Party (they must join the GOP, Grand Old Plutocracy), and says that we need to go back to burning women at the stake a la 16th century Europe.

    Halloween is not the only holiday with pagan roots. Christmas and easter are both pagan as well. They are completely unbiblical. Easter celebrates the pagan gods of fertility . Why do you think they use eggs and rabbits. And christmas is all about the rebirth of mithra. They have nothing to do with Gods word. Jesus(yeshua) wasnt born in december . December 25th is all about sun worship. Know where your traditions stem from. You will be suprised what you find. Even the term christ is unscriptural. The term jesus christ translates to fish oil. His name is yeshua and he is the messiah.

  • Tatiana Covington

    There isn’t any devil. Halloween is in cold fact, just another day. Kids dress up in cheap costumes to hit you up for candy. Even they know that none of that stuff is real.

    The same goes for Wicca. There aren’t any pagan gods. It all results from two things:

    1. The Earth’s revolution around the Sun. It’s called the year.
    2. The inclination of the Earth’s axis of rotation to the plane of its orbit.

    Read any decent astronomy book and all the childish fears will instantly vanish.

    I knew all this when I was 6. It’s all just orbital mechanics. Why don’t you know this?

  • Scott

    Witches, sorcerers, wizards, enchanters, astrologers, horoscopes, mediums~fortune tellers are all entertaining devil spirits. Seeking out and entertaining such spirits has consequences! We should seek out the one true God! not satan’s fallen angels! Some good reading from the Word of God about such practices Michael:

    Leviticus 19:31 (King James Version)
    31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
    Deuteronomy 18: 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch

    11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

    12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

    A lot of people today do not worship God. They worship material things like money. You want to know who that group is? It can be shown by their actions rather than their words.

    What I don’t want to do is take Halloween away from children. To me it is Costume and Candy day. Let the children have fun. Just don’t emphasis the garbage around the holiday.

    A lot of Christian Churches take advantage of the fun and have a party for the kids under adult supervision. To me that is more Christian than condemnation. There is a history behind the holiday.
    This Halloween we took a grandchild to a church celebration. They had free hot dogs and popcorn! They put up one of those inflatable things for the kids to play in. (They were lined up to play.) They had a scavenger hunt in the gym. All for the kids to have fun and dress up in costumes.
    Everything was free. They even set up a camera and scene for children to be photographed in their cute costumes.
    Outside the weather took a real turn for the worst. It had rained all day. Now it got rain and wind.
    It broke up around 9. Around 11, there was a tornado north of the town. As far as I know, most of the trick or treating was cancelled and rescheduled because of the weather. But the kids that went to church had a real good time on what is not supposed to be a serious holiday. The holiday is all about fun for children. The churches took a real part in keeping it just that, fun, with no serious overtones. I do not condemn churches for doing that. I think that is the way Christians are supposed to act.

The very sad thing is that many of these “pagans” were brought up in evangelical Churches, but were treated unkindly or abused by so called Christians. The phenomenon is a backlash agaisnt legalism in Christianity. We should pray for these lost children of darkness and lead them lovingly back to faith in Christ Jesus.

        Worshiping the creator and then stomping on his creation is a bit like telling someone you love them and then smearing a painting they labored over for hours on end when they present it to you.

        The Old Testament’s God lamented man’s treatment of the earth, asked us nicely to let the land rest after seven years, and in Revelation it says ‘those that destroy the earth will be destroyed.’ Speaks to the ecological devastation and materialism of the first world, I think.

  • appaloosarules

    As a “Christian” you do not celebrate Halloween? Ok. How about Easter? Do you paint eggs? Give candy? Does the Easter bunny visit your house? Those all have Pagan roots- see Beltane festival. Eggs and rabbits had nothing to do with Jesus rising from the dead but are signs of fertility. Celebrate Christmas? Put up a tree? Also Pagan. Name me one birthday party-celebration you have been to where the guests give each other gifts? If you have read the Academic research Jesus was NOT born December 25th but that date was chosen in order to work with Pagan Holidays and helped get them into the fold. Ever wonder why there are Yew trees at almost every church yard in England? That’s where the Pagans worshipped and the Christians built the churches there to get them in. The gold halo’s around behind the saints? The sun God of the pagans.. After THOUSANDS of years things get blended by cultures, adapted and changed and claimed as their own. And of course you know that Jesus’ “deity” was taken by vote when the bible was being complied. YOU DO know all your biblical history as a CHRISTIAN right?

    For being an anti-Pagan article, the author does a fairly good job of outlining the major holidays. I was enjoying the article right up till the end where it became bigoted, and full of fear. Folks I hate to break it to you, but modern Witches and Pagans are no more sinister than Christians. We celebrate holidays at concurrent time frames as Christians, and enjoy the togetherness of our communities at these times.

    Furthermore, it is the divisiveness attached to such labels that keeps liberty minded people from effectively unifying. You’d be surprised how many constitutionalist Pagans there are out there. What we need is to remember the Bill of Rights, amendment 1, is there to protect freedom of religion and the right to worship as one chooses (among several other vital protections). That is an open and inclusive idea folks.

    It is no less distasteful to be anti-(insert hated religion), as to be racist or sexist, yet somehow it is better tolerated. Remember folks we all face the same sorts of challenges, and we are all being oppressed by the powers that be. We need to look past these labels and the emotional attachments we place on them and recognize our common challenges and work together to solve the problems of our age.

    I wouldn’t call it darkness, just… other-ness. I had Wiccan (Celtic Revival Pagan) and Asatru (Nordic Revival Pagan) friends In High School and early in my working career, and I wouldn’t worry about them too much. Most of them are just people seeking something to believe in, in a jaded and messed up world. A religion that promises you the ability to, even subtly, be able to provide a bump in the right direction at a time when everything seems to be falling down? That’s magic. (Yes, I know that was a terrible pun.)
    Religion serves a useful purpose in Western societies. Jung (the psychologist) once made a study of tribal societies that still existed (at the time) throughout the world, and what he found was that magical thinking was pretty much a universal trait. We’re all a bunch of superstitious apes, pretty much. The early civilizations that rose were the ones that figured out how to circumvent that, with religious doctrines that focused the magical thinking into narrow avenues, leaving more of our addled grey matter as a playground for logic and reason.

    If one religion stumbles and loses its credibility, given religion’s useful place in society, another one emerges to take its place. The last time that happened in the West on a major scale was the end of Paganism and the rise of Christianity. While the 20th Century saw both the rise and fall of something we can only call Statism, both in the Fascist and Communist styles that attempted to ban religion and replace it with The State as the universal benefactor, that was (hopefully) a flash in the pan that will soon only be a footnote in the pages of history.
    I don’t think Christianity is finished in the US, even in spite of scum like the Westboro cretins and their ilk who misuse religion to cloak messages of hate, the institutional abuse scandals that rocked the Catholic Church, or the many mixed and garbled signals of Protestantism. It’s a faith with a powerful message, but one that requires people that can live in order for it to reach its full potential. Unfortunately, there was only one perfect person in history, and if Christianity doesn’t get its act together soon, pretty soon most people won’t believe that anymore.
    Let’s just hope that whatever’s waiting in the wings is tolerant and reasonable, or we could be in for another Dark Ages.

    As a former Catholic turned Pagan, I can’t say I see the numbers that this article claims. The information they used was poorly obtained, and the author didn’t even go into why paganism and witchcraft are becoming popular. I was sadly disappointed to say the least.

    What the author could have also mentioned was the fact that most Christian holidays are old Pagan holidays. Do you think Samhain is too Witchy? Well, don’t celebrate Easter (Ostra) because those little cute bunnies symbolize fertility, the eggs as well. It was purposfully devised as a way for pagan practices to be swept under the rug. Christmas? Tisk Tisk! Don’t you dare if you are a Christian. Chopping down a tree was the way to bring the traditions of Yule to everyone. And Ho Ho Ho is that Saint Nicholas? No, the original was Krampas. Even the Easter Lilies are Pagan! And non-Christian holidays are plagued too! Valentines day, long claimed by Christians as being the feast day of St. Valentiois was actually based off a Roman holiday which the people liked so much, not even the Pope could stop its celebration.

    With a name like the Truth I find you sorely lacking in it.

    • Fax Trivia

      Christianity is made up with a combination of teachings of a man called ”Jesus” and Sol Invictus, the God of Sun. Rome was trying to create a single religion for Roman Empire so they created the Sol Invictus, when teachings became popular, they mixed the two religions and created one that you know as Christianity today, which is also why Jesus image contains solar symbols like Zodiac (12 apostles are 12 signs while Jesus being the Sun/Sol Invictus), halo that had been used as a symbol of sun and sun-based-holidays that ”borrow” heavily from pagan religions (have you ever noticed Easter contains fertility symbols? Christmas being almost same with Saturnalia and very close to winter solstice?). Christianity is 90% pagan and 10% jewish.

    As an ex Christian, I do celebrate Samhain. However, I am sorry you feel it is a dark religion. I am not Wiccan or Druid. I am a Witch. It is not dark, but a light, elegant, beautiful, kind belief system that sees the divine manifested in ALL things equally. It changed my life to
    dancing with joy daily and I have been doing it for a long time now. I moved from being depressed, suicidal, with my health suffering as Christian, to researching history and science in desperation, to freeing myself. So please, if you don’t like it, fine, but don’t lie about it.

    Well to be very frank I’m glad I left Christianity. Any religion that says “Hey if you get raped you have to marry your rapist after he pays your father some money.” So great, that’s like pimping out your own kid! Oh and let’s not forget the Flood right? Children were drowned in the flood, children that had no concept of right or wrong. Does that sound merciful to anyone here? Oh right probably the author of this article. Lastly the least friendliest people I’ve been around my entire life have been Christian. Ironically the nicest and most helpful have 98% of the time been Atheists, Wiccans, and about seven Satanists(LeVayen). Hell one of my friend’s is a Pagan and when he expressed interest in being more than just friends, when I politely told him I didn’t have those feelings for him he respected that and we’re still friends. The so called “Good Christian boy” that I turned down had the nerve to say he had a “right” to be with me. Yeah…..a possessive egotistical jerk(who I’m pretty would have likely tried to rape me if we weren’t in public when I declined his “offer”), boy oh boy does that sound attractive? Maybe to some people but not to me! And I find it so hypocritical of you here poking fun at people for making their religious choices but the second someone criticized a Christian it means they’re “Anti-Christian”. Hey you can’t have it both ways.

    Of course you do, and all christians also celebrate it, as well as Yule (christmass), Ostara (Easter) — even the word “Easter” cames from the same roots as “Ostara”, it’s the pagan spring celebration. It does not matter what christian-denomination a person is, every single christian root is catholic from the middle ages, and catholic church addapted every pagan celebration to their myths.

  • Chalet Taylor

    The writer here misrepresented Samhain completely. It is a Pagan Holiday, celebrated by Wiccans, Witches, Pagans, etc. What is funny to me is that Christianity has adopted the Pagan aspect of Christmas and Easter. No Christian has been able to tell me what a Christmas Tree, or Easter Eggs and Bunnies symbolize to them; it goes back to Pagan holidays that are legitimately celebrated, and revolve around those symbolic representations of the earth. Jesus didn’t even die or resurrect within those time frames. So, hearing Christians bash on Pagan Witches really cracks me up.your religion is no better, and no more right than mine is. It is right for you,there is no need to persecute or belittle others beliefs. In case you really wanted to know what is celebrated during Samhain, go here:

    I myself am agnostic. And i don’t claim to know everything. But i do known that Christianity and it’s holidays that are celebrated, can all be traced back to pagen celebrations that the church assimilated or stole depending upon viewpoint. Now I’m sure this will piss off most Christians. But the truth is that almost the entirety of your religion is bits and pieces stolen from much older cultures and beliefs, then bastardized to become part of your faith. Which hey nice job you kept their beliefs just close enough to the original to assimilate these “lesser” and “heathen” cultures to your own. Job well done. ?

  • Kalliope Emeranne

    I am a proud pagan and no, I do not worship the devil, which by the way, was created by Christians. We pagans do not believe in the devil or anything associated with such as that. I do not sacrifice anything. I honor mother earth and all that she gives to us. I do not condemn anyone for the way they worship or their religion and I don’t go out and push my religion on anyone. My first rule to my religion is to harm none. I feel everyone had a right to worship whatever they want to as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone. And if everyone would do their research on my religion before opening their mouths, they would see the truth that we are not bad people and they wouldn’t sound so ignorant when they talk. Please educate yourself before speak. We are trying to save the earth and the animals not cause harm to anyone. I only wish everyone could say that. Kalliope Emeranne ?

  • jgrey

    i am a Christian. Been saved and baptized with the holy Ghost and with fire. but im just a babe in need of milk, spiritually speaking. I ran from God, and dambled in drugs, ended up in the middle of a coven, i wasnt aware of the danger i was in trying to fit in to something i didnt even realize existed. They were aware i wasnt like them, and stole my dreams with dream catchers, and i saw visions and was made aware of the evil creatures that lurked around me. They wanted my soul but were unable to take it, due to the fact that i belong to God and was bought with a price. I saw and heard things youd only see in nightmares and horror movies. God allowed me to witness such evil to get me to wake up and come back to him. i stopped posioning my body and temple, seeking help from faith based programs. They worshipped other gods, and goddesses that i cannot stand. i ran away from all of that, but the images and visions and tramtic experiences still are in the back of my mind. i recieved knowledge of how they operate and the meanings of colors and symbols, of there mordern day traditions out of no where. My spiritual gifts and disernment has become very powerful, i realize i had them as a child, and was terrorfied by them. seeing and hearing things no one eles could see. hated being in totall darkness at night. I strongly believe God created me to do something big, we are in the latter days, so i must do all i can to be delivered and completely be transformed into the man God created me to be in the upcoming darkness that is spreading ever so rapidly in this world. I hate evil and the things that arent of God. God has been silent since i left that cursed barron land. I stumbled upon knowledge of the what goes on behind the scenes of society, and i know things that could probaly get me killed if i choose to speak out. But God is fighting my battles for me and giving me protection from above for the time being.

    Ephesians 6:12KJV

    12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    Hi, so i am a Christian. I only follow Christ. I recently found out that my marriage of almost 20 years was ended my a witch. She did a spell on my ex. I also found out that some of my dearest friends practice cards and are preforming spells and incantations to get things they want. I also just found out that my youngest daughters father considers himself a warlock. I Have always kept my family, especially my children in prayer. I am alarmed, and these people think they can serve the Lord as well. I’m mortified!!!! They consider themselves, “white witches” i continue to pray for them as i have already spoke with them and discussed that they can not serve 2 Gods . But honestly, i want to shake them and ask them……,”what the hell is wrong with you people’. But i keep that to myself. I come yup them in love and prayer. I recently had a night mare, in it. It wasn’t just my exs new wife, but him as well who practices and dabbles in the occult. He is a Christian , baptist, preacher. He and his wife were in a circle saying some language, and there were pictures if my children in the middle. I immediately payed the blood of the lamb over my children and the full armor of God. (Ephesians). Another thing is they say they believe in God. Help me, I’m in shock. Especially about the church my ex is the pastor over. I am praying, as i know that if i were to present this to his church boasts, i will look like the “jealous wife”. But in actuality i am in fear of the sheep’s souls. My daughter, whom resides with her father had called me afraid and asked me to pray with her. I also told her to come home, she always had a save Christian home with me. Her, my son, whom stays to make sure she is safe. And my grandson. Please Peau for my family. This is a Christians worst nightmare.

    You know, freedom of religion includes all religions. I try not to judge and certainly don’t kill creatures in sacrifice. You are responsible for your OWN actions, to say otherwise is a cop out. My beliefs, are based on nature. Peace, love, tolerance, that’s what should be remembered. I don’t believe in satan or hell, so how could I worship it? Um, what part of that is evil?

  • royalwitch

    IF you are true Christians you should tolerate me as a witch. There is nothing wrong with celebrating Halloween/ Samhain. The time of witches is upon us all, and you would do well to accept this as a great and wonderful religious awakening. Witch’s are pathologically secretive so there are many more than you think. If witches become more organized I hope you will be accepting, the alternative many be unpleasant for you all for we have plagues as powerful as God’s were If you attempt to subjugate us as some once were by the Egyptians.

  • Zombiewitch

    As someone who follows the Wiccan faith, I find this to be a horrible distortion of Wicca. Wicca is not evil, nobody preforms animal or human sacrifice and we see the Earth as sacred. You cast judgement on what you don’t understand as well as refusing to learn about as your bible stated, “Judge not less he be judged Matthew 7:1”. Maybe you should read your own bible because your Jesus was supposed to love everyone. If your hell does exist, you certainly would go there

    You are thinking of a hypothesis, a theory is an idea with evidence backing it such as evolution

    Read their personal letters and the Federalist Papers. You will see that they were NOT Christians!

    • Tom Tom

      Most of them were. A few like TJ were not, but don’t compare the uneducated people we have today with them. Clearly they believed in the free practice of religion which you would probably be glad to prohibit.

  • Mithrandir Greyholm

    Nice posing as a pro witchcraft article to get attention and then show your true colors!

    Three words: FREEDOM OF RELIGION. Not just yours, asshole.

    Bats and spiders have NOTHING to do with Wicca. Nor does Hallowe’en, which is a strictly modern, secular holiday. Even the title of this article is misleading, as witchcraft is a practice and not a religion. Disapprove of Wicca as you will, but please research and cite your sources. As a Wiccan of thirty years I can tell you that you do everyone, Wiccans and Christians alike, a grave disservice by publishing this inaccurate hogwash. I would never attempt to misrepresent Christianity, please show my religion the same respect.

    Well, I was never one to like being told what to do (ie. Christianity, Islam, etc.), and I’ve always loved candles and black cats, so I’ll raise my cup of Earl Grey and call myself a witch! LOL Christianity evolved into a practice designed to control women anyway, so why would any SANE woman fall for that rot?!

    I hate to break it to you Christians but Halloween is a Christian holiday, not a Pagan one. We celebrate Samhain, pronounced son-in-law. It is the Witches’ new year, the last harvest, and a day to honor our ancestors. The veil between world’s is at it’s thinnest then and on Beltane, but only the ancestors come through on Samhain. The scary stuff, the costumes,and even the jack-o’-lanterns were used by early Christians who didn’t understand and we’re afraid. There are actually several mistakes in your article which shows you didn’t do proper research and instead just repeated what you heard from non-Pagans. We will gladly teach you the truth about us if you just ask. Evil or Dark Witches are rare. Most of us believe in spreading love and light if we’re given the chance.

      Hallowe’en is not a Christian or a pagan holiday. It is entirely secular. Christians have All Saints’ Eve, and we Wiccans/Neopagans have Samhain. Neither one of them is Hallowe’en.

    As a former member, of Wicca, I’m not surprised, about the info contained within this article. I spent years in Wicca. I wrote ceremonies. I was friends, with one of the most powerful witches, in the world. I helped formulate a game plan, to infiltrate the Christian churches, so that they could be basically neutralized, in regard to Wicca.

    I found Christ, in 2001 and have tried, with little success, to reverse that game plan and get churches to understand the growth, of Wicca.

    Spiritual Warfare has become a joke, particularly amongst the predominantly Caucasian churches. Predominantly African churches seem more attuned to the problem.

    Something needs to be done and….. soon!

    • serafina

      I have been Wiccan for twenty five years, and that is a bold face lie. Wiccans have NO interest in Christianity. None. We have no interest in infiltrating any religion, including Christianity. You are both a troll and a person who bears false witness. Go crawl back under your rock.

    The Elites of the New World Order are Lucifer worshippers. It is called The Illuminati. John Todd, a former Illuminati member, has several tapes/videos online explaining what they are all about, how they operate through lies, drugs, witches, spells, etc. It’s a must that citizens of America and around the world wake up to their plans to rule the World. Events we see politically, economically, socially will begin to tie together for those who gain insight from this perspective to what is going on in the world today.

    Fax, Hammerstrike is not a Christian. You go down that path to your own destruction.

  • Tom Tom

    Yep. He is coming.

    Repent, the end is near.
