Just one problem with your rant:


QUOTED  she's a Satanist, the people who give Wiccans like us a bad name


Satanists don't give Wiccans a bad name. Wiccans give Wiccans a bad name. Dear, people who are think any type of witch or Neo-pagan are evil don't care what type we are. We are evil because we are not like them. Those who don't hold this view judge people or groups based on their own actions.

Besides, Satanists aren't evil, either. Just a different point of view, that's all.

What I meant by that was, some Christians who see a Pentagram, upright or upside down, always accuse of the owner to be Satanist. At least most of the ones at my old school couldn't see the difference between the two. Even though it's a free country, my school system is so stupid that kids would get ISS if they had either symbol in their possession.

Little off kilter here, but, anyone know what the difference between a pentagram and a pentacle is?

I was under the impression that a pentagram was for Satanists while the pentacle was Wiccan..... It could be that they are the same thing and the one name is just a variation in dialect.

The signs and names are much older than these new sillinesses.
I was always under the impression that a pentagram was the fivepointed star, and a pentacle was a pentagram with a circle around it. The two terms seem to be used interchangebly though. At least now. Don't know about earlier. I'll have to look up on the OED later.

You have this site, which seems to be full of shit, so I wouldn't use it for anything but a laugh.

This one, though lacking in sources, seems to be slightly better.

Actually, the first one is rather accurate. The sources listed can be traced to somewhat scholarly research (we are talking religion, legend, mythology, and folklore here). Answers.com is just a search engine.

QUOTED  What I meant by that was, some Christians who see a Pentagram, upright or upside down, always accuse of the owner to be Satanist. At least most of the ones at my old school couldn't see the difference between the two. Even though it's a free country, my school system is so stupid that kids would get ISS if they had either symbol in their possession.


That's exactly my point. Those Christians you are referring to are the same people I am referring to with this:

QUOTED  Dear, people who are think any type of witch or Neo-pagan are evil don't care what type we are.


To these people, Wiccans ARE Satanist, due to the Gospel of John chapter 3, verse 16. So are Muslims, Buddhist, Atheist, Taoist, et al. Anything not Christian, and sometimes even their version of Christian, is Satanist. Some Pentecostals think Catholics are Idolaters, and thus Satanist. So, for those people, it doesn't matter what you do, or if you are wearing a Pentagram as a Christian symbol (it has been in the past), or not. You aren't like them, thus you are evil.

Anyone who bothers to differentiate does not say Wiccans are like Satanist. But, there are plenty of Wiccans who are IDIOTS and deserving of insult. It's these that give Wicca a bad name.

Part of the problem is the mentality of Satanist = Bad. Most real modern Satanist are not evil, just very self-centered.

For once I am actually going to have to agree with you on this.

Thus why I can't stand most Satanists. And by "most" I mean "all but one"... and for some reason I've met an alarming amount. It's basically the same as why I dislike so many Christians - nothing wrong with the dogma per se, but the believers are such bloody douchenozzles about it.

Rage is people who ruin good ideas for everyone else.

The dogma that says no matter how nice you are, if you don't believe in their particular brand of invisible sky pixies you aren't worth as much as those that do?
Or the dogma that says it's ok to be a dick?
