You know if you paid any real attention to this group you would see we have more important things to do then send anyone to you for "fun".

We love pointing out your hypocrisy of "Tolerant Wiccans and Pagans" yet you ban anyone who may be a friend or just watching this community.

You are nothing but spoiled little children who do not seem to understand the stupidity in which you have embroiled yourselves. One has to wonder what a community that is open to all pagans and wiccans truly is like if they ban certain pagans and wiccans for being friends with certain people or expressing opinions about certain things.

If you truly wanted to learn you would not be banning people.

I pity you for you will gain no knowledge but false knowledge, which will only get you hurt.

sad.

Exactly how is "neo-wicca" degrading? The eclectic and solitary versions of Wicca *are* newer than the traditional forms, yes? So, tell me, how can it be degrading to be called "New Wicca"?

I don't find it degrading in as much as I feel it's sometimes inaccurately applied.

For example, I am studying Seax-Wica, a tradition that is about half the age of the Gardnerian trad, was created by former Gardnerian Raymond Buckland and, I believe, is one of the first to allow solitary practitioners. Seax-Wica is not Neo-Wicca. It is a valid tradition. Yet by your definition any solitary Seax-Wican should be considered Neo-Wiccan, which would be incorrect.

I seem to recall hearing of other trads that are now allowing solitaries into their ranks.

Now, as I said I am studying this tradition. I haven't as of yet dedicated to it. So, for the time being I am a Neo-Wiccan, even if I do feel the term to be rather silly (Wicca is, after all only 50 years old).

See what I mean: Seax-Wica is not Neo-Wicca. It is a valid tradition.

The statement implies that Neo-Wicca is not valid. The term to me feels like it is just used to group "non-real" wiccans together because the "real" wiccans aren't secure enough in their faith to allow the new ones to call themselves Wiccan as well.

Shesh, I'm glad that I'm not the only one on here that thinks it's a silly term.
