    This is actually not a real religion because its members are made up of caring people. The philosophy of Wicca is love, compassion, respect, tolerance and freedom. "Do what you will, harm no one."

    As you can see from this description, Wicca could never be considered a religion because it just doesn't include massive amounts of hatred, intolerance, arrogance, violence, coercion and power-hungry leaderships full of greed and deception!

    Wicca is a modern, polytheistic religion with ritual generally centered upon a patron god and goddess. It stresses polarity and balance, as well as responsibility for one's own actions. Wiccans see the physical and spiritual worlds as being intimately connected. Wicca is an esoteric religion, with the real truths of it being learned through experience, rather than through instruction. The various practices of Wicca are to help people find those experiences and lessons. Wicca has no prophet and no holy books.

    Hello,

    It is classed as a neopagan religion and was started in 1954 by a British civil servant, Gerald Gardner. Details:

  • Its a non organized religion with rituals that take the place or prayer other religions have. They worship several gods and godesses. The gods and godesses are ones taken from roman gods among other gods also integrated into the religion. They try and connect with nature and the paranormal. There are a lot of misconceptions on the religion because of stupid tweens and teens doing it wrong because they think its cool and dark (its not dark).

    It is like any other religion-- we believe in a Higher Power and have morals/values we attempt to live up to.
