Now here is what I mean by this. You have one group of people saying Wicca just refers to Traditional Wicca, i.e. Gards, and Alexandrians. Then you have the group that says no your Wiccan if you can only trace your lineage back to the New Forest area of England. Then you have the popular view that if you follow the Wiccan Rede `An it Harm none... Do What Thou Will your Wiccan. Then you have the people saying no if you are not this then your a Witch, or your Neo-Pagan, and you have others still that say you follow the craft. Then you have the writers of Pagan books telling you something else entirely. Hell I am confused now and I thought I had been a Wiccan for over 20 years. Or am I a Neo-Pagan, or maybe just a Witch.
I guess the point I am trying to make is in the end is the label really all that important? Do we really need to get worked up over who has the "right" to call ones self Wiccan, or Witch? Shouldn't we be celebrating what we have in common instead? Honoring what is highest and best in each of us as individuals and has a group no matter what we label ourself or what someone else labels us. I am here to tell you that I will continue to proudly call myself a Wiccan, no matter what someone else may think I am. If someone doesn't like that they can just kiss the fattest part of my ass, and I probably didn't need to count that person among my friends. Be proud my readers of who you are and strong in your convictions.
