Oh, were you feeling lonely, June? Or is it just that your anger is boiling over, and you feel the need to pick a fight?My guess is, Wicca will be the religion of the future. It morphs into most anything one could "desire."
There is power in numbers and Wiccans are busy lobbying the government at this moment in "time."
Beware Christians ... as your young folks come home and inform you that they are now Christian-"witches."
Wiccans might not admit that as do Christians, they proselytize, but maybe "spreading the word" would be an acceptable phrase.

Wiccan Priest For B.C. Prison Inmates Cancelled For Now
"People have ancient views of Wiccan or paganism, people have a very negative image and it's taken a long time to get people to understand we're not devil worshipers, we're not bad people — we're just simple tree-huggers."
The tender included a generic job description and listed the pay as ranging from $25,000 to $50,000. The chaplain would be required to deliver Wiccan spiritual services, pastoral counselling and crisis intervention.
The applicant also would plan and lead Wiccan services "with ritual, teaching and meditation" to reduce stress and anger generated by incidents within the institution, or to commemorate the faith's holy days. It would be the applicant's role to create a "sanctuary atmosphere" within the prison chapel.
Meredith Kimber, a 35-year-old Wiccan priestess from Nanaimo, B.C., explained those tasks could translate into anything from common-sense counselling that simply comes from a like-minded person to full-fledged rituals conducted in the Wiccan tradition.
Applying to act as Wiccan clergy to those in jail who are already Wiccan cannot be seen as proselyting even by the most skewed of imaginations.
