What is a Wiccan?
Contributed by: Kael
There are as many definitions of Wicca as there are practitioners of Wicca (also known as "the Craft", Witchcraft, or the Old Religion). One of the joys of this path is that there is no "one, true way" to be a Wiccan and all Wiccans are encouraged to follow their hearts.
Since there are so many misconceptions about Wicca, I’d like to begin by dispelling some of the more common myths about Wicca.
- Not all witches are Wiccans, but all Wiccans are witches. Simply put, witchcraft is the art of practicing magic and Wiccans routinely practice witchcraft.
- Wicca is a relatively new religion that is officially recognized by most state governments, the federal government, and the United States Armed Forces. Although the Wiccan religion is new, it’s roots go back long before the birth of Christianity.
- Wiccan have only one law, commonly known as the Wiccan Rede. It states in part, “An it harm none do what ye will.” What it means in layman’s terms is this: Do whatever you want to do, as long as it doesn’t harm anyone.
- Many Wiccans also believe that there is a spiritual law in effect that holds that everything you do comes back to you three-fold. It is known as The Rule of Three. Others simply call it “karma”.
- Wiccans do not practice Satanism or devil-worshiping. Satanism is a purely Christian construct. In an effort to convert pagans to Christianity, early Christian leaders taught that worshiping any other God but theirs, was a sin. Since the male Deity that is most commonly associated with witchcraft is a horned god, worshiping him became synonymous with sinning.
Furthermore, millions of pagans were murdered if they refused to convert to Christianity, so if you were pagan and you wanted to survive, you converted. To keep your children alive, you taught them that the Horned God was an evil entity whose only purpose was to steal, kill and destroy. Hence, the birth of the Christian devil.
The fact is that the Horned God, was seen as the personification of the life force energy in animals and the wild and was associated with the wilderness, virility and the hunt. In traditional and mainstream Wicca, the Horned God is viewed as the masculine side of divinity, being both equal and opposite to the Goddess.
