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.
