1.0 out of 5 stars Disgusted 13 April 2011
As a long term buyer and user of Amazon, I am disappointed and saddened that you have chosen to sell this pamphlet. By doing so you are promoting and condoning what is again persecution of Pagans/Wiccans/Witches - call us what you will, it amounts to the same thing. How dare Catholics think they can convert us to their ways when I dont think any good Witch would want to be part of a paedophilic society. I wonder what would happen if the pamphlet was called "Mecca: Understanding the Dangers" and how to convert Muslims to Catholicism.

1.0 out of 5 stars A balanced view 5 Feb 2011
I am a Wych, and I am proud to be called one.

It does not surprise me that The Catholic Church has once again brought something out that will try to 'blacken' the Wych-Craft Path. (Saying this Elizabeth Dodd has a right to her own opinion.)

Our faith/belief system is fast becoming the largest in the UK.

We don't have expensive churches with priceless treasures, worth so much money, if they were sold they would help end world starvation.

We have our Mother Earth as our Temple and very few indoor temples which are simple and beautiful.

We don't demand worship of any Deity, we honor and revere, we don't demand you follow and put faith in our every word, but give you the information for you to make your own choices.

We teach you to accept responsibility for your own actions and reality and to protect and honor the world we live in. We only teach you this if you come to us and request it. We never seek to convert.

We live this life every day of the year and not just on one day of the week.

I personally teach and have respect for all faiths, just wish we had the same respect in return.

Why can we not accept what each individual believes and get on with our own lives, perhaps it would be a far better world.

Publications of this nature can only insight fear, hatred and unrest, which we already have in abundance.

Come and approach us, ask questions, we will answer you honestly and genuinely. More understanding I feel would produce less fear and more tolerance.

We are all normal people, living our lives to the best we can in an intolerant, materialistic world. I have friends from many faiths and we accept each others paths.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just another freelance opportunist! 4 Feb 2011
How much longer will rubbish like this continues to be published? Indeed Ms Dodd was in contact with Pagans but her interaction was fleeting and she seems to have learnt nothing at all in the process. Just another freelance opportunist!

1.0 out of 5 stars Religious intolerance 5 Feb 2011
It concerns me greatly that in this day of tolerance of other beliefs etc, the Catholic Church are the most intolerant. I thought the UK was looking at making incitement to religious hatred illegal.

Save your money. The only "Dangers" are from the people who write publications like this, and particularly the priests of that religion and the acts a lot of them do on children that get covered up (and ignored by their Pope). Learn about what it REALLY is and learn to be as accepting of others as they are to you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Profiting from intolerance? 1 Jun 2011
By Hugh
It's sad to see a whole book dedicated to intolerance. I have many Catholic friends, and embrace their spiritual choices. Likewise I have friends who are Wiccans, and I also embrace their right to have a choice, and not to be judged for their beliefs.

I wonder what the reception would have been had the book been "Jews & Judaism - Understanding the Dangers" - I would have expected it to be taken off amazon immediately. (no slur intended to my Jewish friends of course).

Don't get me wrong, I do respect the authors right to publish this book, I just disagree with intolerance of this kind that has taken us so long as a society to get past - and we're still at it.

Thankfully I can exercise my right to review this book, and give it a low rating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Catholic Church gets it all wrong AGAIN 4 Feb 2011
By Frank
First i will say that i have not read this book, but I do know what it contains. I would also like to state that I am not Wiccan, but have grown up around them and have many freinds that are. I was actually raised Catholic, went to Catholic school and the whole 9 yards. What I, and everyone really should find offensive is this need for us all to convert each other to what we believe. Faith and spirituality are personal journeys that other people have no right confirming or condeming. Wicca is not a faith of dark arts, most are kind people who seek peace in thier life. As in many religions, including christianity, there are people who take Wicca to a dark place. This by no means makes the practice of a Pagan religion evil. If you want a history lesson, the Catholic church was built on the foundation of the previous Pagan faith of the Romans. Have you ever wondered why you have a christmas tree, or easter eggs, or why the dates we celbrate christian holidays are when they are? Well its because the Romans were experts at assimilation, they used the Greek Gods and made them their own, then when christianity became popular they assimilated everything into the pagan system, making it easy for the Pagans to switch to the mandated christian faith. Keeping special dates and parts of ritiual the same. I guess what I am getting at is that this booklet, produced by the Catholic Church, is an insult to many people. Who are we to judge what others believe? Who are we to try and convert others to our way of thinking? Everyone has the right to have faith in what makes them happy and makes this life easier and ultamately easier when we die. The Catholic Church should get its house in order before it goes after other religions.
