Wicca Will Be The 3rd Largest Religion In The U.S. By 2012

"Wicca is the fastest-growing religion in America, set to be the third largest religion by 2012," says Marla Alupoaicei, the co-author of the controversial book "Generation Hex".

Alupoaicei also claims that "The numbers of adherents are doubling every 30 months".

There are now over 700,000 websites for Wiccans, and there are communities of Wiccans in every major city in the United States.

This comes at a time when there is a mass exodus from many of the churches of the western world.

Women, in particular, seem to be leaving many traditional churches at a blinding pace. An English church census recently found that more than 50,000 women a year are leaving the Anglican church.

And many of these women (and men) are deserting traditional Christianity for Wicca and other forms of pagan religion.

Even young people seem to be really taking to Wicca. The Pagan Federation in the United Kingdom reportedly receives hundreds of enquiries from teenagers every single day.

Harry Potter and other media such as "Charmed", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" and "The Craft" have helped make Wicca and witchcraft increasingly popular in recent years.

In particular, the Harry Potter series is having a tremendous influence on how young people view spirituality.

The Harry Potter series of books and movies is the single biggest phenomenon among the kids of this current generation. The film posted below shows that Harry Potter is not just a fun fantasy diversion for our children, but also that Harry Potter portrays witchcraft and the Occult with stunning accuracy, and that these books and films are aggressively recruiting young children into the world of darkness:


    WE KNOW THE TRUTH..... GET WITH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Is there something wrong, with people wanting more 'charmed' lives? Wanting to be able to take more control of themselves/get in touch with themselves in another way.
    Also, wicca is not a path of darkness. Where -did- you get that from? The bible? Sorry. That just doesn't cut it.
    Harry Potter doesn't 'recruit' anyone. Neither does Buffy or any of the other shows.
    A true wiccan is a wiccan from birth. We don't convert. We just find our truth about who we are.
    We're not interested in elves, magic, occult, mysteries, fairies and so on because we watch these shows or read those books. We read those books and watch those shows, because we're interested in those things.
    A wiccan and a satanist are not the same. They're even far away from eachother. You should read some actual books written -by- wiccans before opening your mouth.
    Compairing satanism and wicca is insulting both sides.
    Satanism and Harry Potter having a connection? Get a grip! LOL! Satanistic lightening-bulb? Could it be that Marilyn Manson got that from something else than satanism? Also, Harry's scar. What do you want it to be instead? A flower? OH. And everytime there's a thunderstorm it's a satanist blinking? Dude. You need to get a grip and probably some education too. O.o
    No. Highschool aint enough.

  3. How silly. We Pagans don't believe in your mythical Satan. We see him as a Christian cop out to avoid taking responsibility for your own actions. In order be a Satanist, one must have a Christian belief system. We Pagans do not have that system.
    I was raised Pagan, I'm 47. Actually, Satan and Hell were not originally Christian concepts. Read, research what you espouse.
    Gehenna was actually a garbage dump outside of the city.
    One should read, I realize that for centuries the Church used this faith as a method of controlling the masses, and that is still a factor today.
    One big thing to remember, we respect your faith, but invariably, Chritians do not respect other people's beliefs.

  4. good..../

    cure of black magic

  5. If you think Christians don't take responsibility for their actions, than you haven't read the bible in its entirety.

    "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil." 2 Cor. 5:10

    "But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." 1 Timothy 5:8

    "And Jesus answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27

    "The Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.” Genesis 4:6-7

    The bible calls Christians to be highly responsible in their lives because they will give account for how they conducted their lives at the judgement seat of Christ. You, my friend, are merely stating your opinion, none of it based on any evidence or fact, but because of your disdain for Christianity. If you believe Satan exists and there is sin in the world, you truly come to an understanding on why the world is such a messed up place. You say oh it's humans that cause all the problems, well what causes humans to cause all the problems? The Bible is the only book that addresses this issue in its entirety and provides a unique solution that no other book or religion provides. That is the saving Grace of Jesus Christ through His death on the cross to pay for all the sins of mankind, because Only God can forgive sins and man had to pay the penalty, and Christ was both God and Man. And through His Grace we are able to control our inward attitudes, which affect our outward actions, because Jesus knew that it was the Heart that was ultimately wicked and needed cleansing and it's the heart that provokes the actions we take in life.

  6. Satan and Hell are origionally Christian concepts which came from the Hebrews and the old testament. The New Testament is merely a fulfillment of the Old Testament. Jesus fulfills over 100 of the prophesies in the Old Testament. The Hebrew language is actually the oldest known language in the World and even predates Sanskrit and the Farsi language of Persia (Iran). What's interesting is that the Hebrew language is the complete opposite of Greek, where Greek is based on abstract, Hebrew revolves around relationship. The God of the Bible is a God of relationship. Sin entering the world as a result of the fall of man in Genesis severed the relationship we once had with God. But God through Jesus Christ has restored that relationship for those who accept Him as their Savior. The Hebrews were God's chosen people. It makes sense that because God is a God of relationship that his chosen people's language, culture, and lifestyle would be based around that very concept.

  7. btw. We christians don't believe in your mythical gods

  8. Wow, being a Christian is scary. If I thought some supreme evil was out to get me, I would be scared too.

    Fortunately, I've been Wiccan since 1988. I live in a safe universe, where every challenge happens for my spiritual growth and best and highest good. There is no ultimate evil. There is a Father and Mother that loves me dearly and provides for me and protects me. I am not a victim of your Satan. I am very sorry that you continue to be.

    Liberate yourself from Sin. Free yourself from fear. Christianity is the great deception and the creator of evil. This article is a perfect example of the fear mongering. Jesus is love. Don't buy into the fear.

  9. Wow Bella,a fool is as a fool does.Good luck with that philosophy when it comes crashing down around your mommy and Daddy and you are left to fend for yourself.

  10. btw, we pagans dont believe in your mythical satan. or your mythical hell and heaven.

  11. I am so pleased to see the amount of young people that can think for themselves if the author of this article is correct in saying "The Pagan Federation in the United Kingdom reportedly receives hundreds of enquiries from teenagers every single day". It is very simple to follow the path most tread upon but to make a path of your own is much more difficult but much more rewarding. Why don't people stop worrying about the state of other's souls and look within. I seem to find one's own spiritual journey leaves little time for intolerance of others.

  12. For the Christians who bash Wicca, and Vice Versa- put your bruised Ego's away. Neither of you have touched the face of God or The Goddess; who are you to say what is or not right?

    Christians was it not God that said "I am that I am" and that "I am your LORD God DONOT presume me." why for do you sit in Judgement of this world or of its inhabitants- Who Gave you the Authority to Judge? Certainly not Christ.. for he only gave you the Authority to preach in his name (that is bring people to God in his name). No where in the new testament does it give you the Authority to cast Judgement on this world NOT one verse. That Authority alone rests with God. Step back and put your gavel down, you take a position that is not yours. In doing so you assume yourself to be righteous and show that you are not. ( and Ye shall know the Tree by the fruit it bears)

    Wiccan's here's truth Ours is a New Age religion that seeks to recreate the Old ways. There are literally thousands of "Old ways" so which one is right? None. We do not practice as did our ancestors. In fact we have scant Resources to draw from that outline any sort of Mysticism or ritual as it was truly practiced. The Christian God is no more Hateful nor is he any more beneficial that Our Goddess. they both are Mystery to Us. It is that Mystery that sustains our faith and our belief.

    To both: You presume to know of something to which you have scantest of Ideas. God?Goddess is a intensly personal experience, but it entitles you to Nothing. So the Kingdom of Heaven or the summer lands is lain at your feet of what benefit is it now? You cast your eyes away from what is to gaze longingly to what maybe. Your forget the Gift THAT is before you- LIFE and the World that created for you. You forsake it for the hope a better life in the next and in doing so you cast That gift to the side and slap God and Goddess in the face like two year old Tyrants ungrateful for the gifts you have been given already in hopes of Rewards of yet to come, and in doing so make your self unworthy of either.

  13. Most Christians do use Satan as a cop out. So many are Christian in word only. Their actions fail to support their belief system. That is all ignoring the fact that what is in the bible was decided by committee and the fact that the world is far older than the scrolls that your book is based upon. I have met 2 Christian people in my 25 years who are a testament to their faith and I have a great deal of respect for those individuals.

  14. it doesn't surprise me with these Christians as usual all i see in your bible and i have read many times that it with speaks itself. You Christians just twisted some shit from the pagan religion, and most of them are realizing what kind of conflicts are there are in Christianity. You throw some versus out there and think holding a cross in someone face is gonna save them. Wow, your so called Christians that follow there versus are the first to kill unborn lives and get abortions, doesn't surprise me one bit. You're losing your followers and it's all Satan, My opinion is stop believing some fairy tale bullshit Satan and blaming all on evil. You create your own evil and it's also called a free will. You even turn your own people away when they are dead sick and you won't even help then the pagans help because they give a damn about everyone and everything. So before you throw your damn versus out again about some fake ass man in the sky think about your actions before pointing fingers at people just because they believe different. This Country was also build under the motto one nation under God , and the under god means if you research it , practices your beliefs it's a free country. This is why your Christians are not liked by most and rejected. I got nothing against god i just like his fan club.

  15. This doesn't surprise me with these die hard Christians. They throw damn versus out there and believe in some guy with horns with fire coming out of his ass and some invisible man in the sky. Ok my question is why are pointing fingers at the people you stole the religion from put it some pretty versus with numbers and think oh my religion is the truth and blah blah blah crap! I fed up with you people. You guys just bitch wine and complain because we dont follow a damn book and oh we are going HELL!!! HISSSS!!!! oh come on give me a break. You Christians should follow your own damn guide lines anyways. What ever happen oh we accept anyone in need . NO YOU GUYS ARE THE ONES WHO TURN THERE OWN PEOPLE DOWN ON THERE DEATH BED! one little thing gets your guys thong in a damn bunch everyone is oh so evil. I read your damn bible so many times and guess what your so called word of truth is BULLSHIT! Nothing but lies. Oh god will stone ya if you don't obey, then you want to tell me it's free will! You guys are just people who are being fed a line of crap. Guess what, you think i might be going to hell but I am already there and i am seeing every single of you giving hell and being that Satan you guys hate so much and you terrorizing other for there free will and belief in there gods and there beliefs. and here if you don't believe it there is the true definition for it.
    Definition of TERRORISM

    : the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion

    there you go Christians suck it up and deal that people will be who they are and if you really want to attack me on here i really don't give two flying farts about it. Call somebody who gives a damn.

  16. Wow the way you are talking....We are all right! I believe there is a Male Aspect and a Female Aspect of "GOD" (you know a ying and yang, right versus wrong, light and dark, female and male) So I believe we are all right! I do find it funny however when people say things like this ("The Hebrews were God's chosen people. It makes sense that because God is a God of relationship that his chosen people's language, culture, and lifestyle would be based around that very concept.") I mean how do you know that the Hebrews are the chosen and their language, culture, and lifestyle is God's choice? How many of you feel that is ego and pride talking not GOD! Keep on keepen on my wiccan and pagan friends! We have survived many years of torment from all their religious wars! WE ARE STILL HERE!!! Have tollarance and understanding my Sisters, they do not have the freedoms we do, so we musten expect them to understand what we understand. Sending Blessings and Understanding and Love to All! <3

  17. Honestly, I side with the Wiccans on this. I don't believe in some wonderous person who live -s in heaven and is judging me on all the things I do. But I could be wrong. And even if there is, I think he'll love a kind person who doesn't judge you base on your religion (a wiccan) more than he'll love a person who believes that gays should go to hell and does judge a person by their religion.
    Just finished "Bleb's" response. Bravo! Bravo! I couldn't have said it better myself.

  18. I seriously agree with the whole Satan is a Christian cop out. Its as true as the grass is green. I strongly don't believe in all powerful man who judges me on all the things I do in life. But I could be wrong. And even if there is a God, I think he would love a kind person who loves everyone just as they are (pagans and non-religious people) than he would a person who claims on should be oiled for being what they are.
