Rights and Freedoms
It is amazing how the word "witch" brings into ignorant people's minds fears and paranoias about having hexes placed on their car heaters and such. For the love of God, MAINTAIN YOUR STUPID VEHICLE SO THAT IT DOESN'T BREAK DOWN AND STOP BLAMING OTHERS FOR YOUR OWN IGNORANCE!! The word "witch" has many meanings. Mostly it means "wise one". It also has connotations of bending like a willow in the wind, meaning to "go with the flow". Pagans and witches are simply nature observing folks who mind their own business and do most of their "worship" in the outdoors instead of in a church or temple. My mother used to tell me that she got more Godliness out of weeding her garden on a beautiful Sunday morning than she ever did sitting in a stale church. I had to agree. The church picnic is something that became popular as a social event that would incorporate such philosophies without actually saying, "Better to worship in the Garden than in the House of the Lord". It is amazing how absolutely everything Pagan has been adopted by the church in one form or another and then claimed as their own idea! Talk about hypocrisy! Mostly it was adopted to make the church more appealing to those who were Pagan, in hopes of converting them/us. But it really didn't work. What they got was a lot of fearful folks who quiver and shake in their ignorant boots at the mere mention of the word "witch". It is not very wise of them, now is it?
