    I was Christian for over 20 yrs; and have been Wiccan now for over 20 years. And I have Christian friends... so I feel I have perspective on this. To Christians, it is *not* illogical to say Christianity is the 1 true faith, and their God is the 1 true God. This is the absolute cornerstone of Christianity-- the foundation of their faith is that there is 1 God and only 1 way to worship him. Obviously, Wiccans being Pagans, are-- according to Christian beliefs-- sinning. That *is* the logical conclusion in Christianity. As far as who gets hate online-- everyone does, not just Wiccans. People come online (particularly to debate forums) to argue. That's kind of the point. Wiccans are not picked on anymore than any other faith. Christians get rude things said to them online as well, just look at the many YA questions absolutely mocking them.
