Why do wiccans believe they must be against the christian religion and at the same time claim christians stole scriptures from one of the many wiccan books? How does star trek connect to the wiccan religion?

Wiccans don't go against the Christian Religion. If you've met someone who has, they probably study their own type of Wicca, but most Wiccan Religions believe in peace. They do not go against any religion whatsoever. We respect all religions although we do not always believe in them as others do. Wicca has nothing against or specifically for Christianity.

Star Trek has nothing to do with Wiccan Religion.

I like Sara's answer but as a side note I would like to add that i think you have it backwards in a sense. Christian hate/fear Wiccans because they are taught that magic can only be done by god (miracles) and people who sell their souls to the devil. Which is not true. I have never claimed that Christians stole scripture but I do claim that there are some things either shared or stolen from Wiccans. Such as Halloween is very close to the Wiccans holiday all hallows eve. And Christians stole the pentagram and gave it to the devil to try to discourage Wiccan practices. But we do not hate Christians but it would be nice if some were a little more open minded aometimes.

Where did the star trek question come from?

I'm just learning about the Wiccan religion,but i don't understand why Christians and Wiccans are so against each other? Muslims and Jews get along and Christians get along with Wiccans? i have friends who are all sorts of religions and we all get along just fine. we should all be able to live in peace together no matter what religion we are.

Oh and where did the Star Trek Question come from??

I agree with Ed. many people mistake wiccans for satanists which we are not. we are just spiritually connected and practice magic. we believe in peace and personal growth, and have nothing against anyone. please email me to talk about wicca anyone. i really want to discuss with someone. Broken_fairy_forever@yahoo.com is where you can reach me and where did star trek come from?

There are, in actuallity sn unfoutunate number of Wiccans who dislike/hate christians for what they done to us (witch burnings etc.) but I think that for a faith that is based, heavily, on peace that such a view should be kept to one's self.

Wiccans don't believe as such, but I think some may become bitter towards Christian antagonism and as a result try to fight fire with fire. Most however (like myself) take a more pacifist and/or understanding approach to that dilemma, seeing their antagonisms as acts of ignorance and nothing more. Where did Star Trek come from?

I am a Christian and totally accepting of other's religions.
I live in a dorm and a new girl moved near me. on her door she put a sign up with a person holding a cross and a line through it. No one else has anything on their door about Wicca or any other religion. How do you defend that?

Wiccans do rock and all but why do Christians go against us, we never did anything to them. Its bull. Just because you are a witch doesn't mean your evil or sold your soul to the devil althuogh, that is what my mother thinks.

Christians didnt 'steal' wiccan traditions.

They werent even wiccan at the time. If you would care to rmemeber, wicca wasnt around back then. It was the mentality of if you cant beat them join them, so the church took pagan holidays and quietly changed them to christian holidays.

I think that Wiccan's really don't hate Christians just that Christians don't like us. I mean from where i live where there is 106 Church's in this city area alone there is some tension. They have tried to ban the new age section in our book stores. But yea there's no real big hate against them just that some people do feel threatened.

I would like to say, you all need a life. Indeed, please, stop spreading your infectious disease of stupidity and grow up, for your sacks and for ours. Wicca is self centered practices. If you really had "powers", due to the natural nature of human beings, the earth would most likely be gone or ruled by one person who has great "power". Stop trying to make yourselves special because all you do is look like an ignorant child playing "magic" tricks. You have a basis on air, meaning: nothing. No books, basically false history, and a group and egotistical individuals.

- Justice shall be served by the mighty hand of the Lord, and all evil do'erswill repent and bow down or, too, will perish.

Christians don't "hate or fear" wiccans, at least we're not supposed to. In general there are two ways "miracles" can happen. It's either psychosomatic (you think its going to happen, so it happens), or from some "power". The psychosomatic part happens everywhere, even in Christianity I suppose. People often become better through healing simply because we think we are going to become better... Its crazy how the human body works. But we believe that "real" "miracles" (I say "miracles" because I don't consider it a miracle if an evil force does it) are either from God or the devil, we don't necessarily believe that you have to sell your soul for them to happen, but if it happens its from either of those sources, knowingly or unknowingly. The devil is deceptive, I believe he could cause good things to happen if only to push people further away from God.

Wiccans do not in any way go against the Christian religion.  Wiccans practice a religion that coincides with reverence for nature, a 'harm none' concept, and an idea that everything is cyclical.  What you do comes back to you and the life of god and goddess are circular.  Wicca draws from Paganism (contrary to popular belief, Wicca came into existence in the 1950's).  Paganism was practiced before Christianity, and some concepts from the Pagan religion were molded to fit in the Christian religion in order to spur conversions.  I suggest some more research.  There are lots of sites out there where you can learn more. Just google Wicca for beginners and you should get a lot of valuable info. Just don't believe everything you read.

Since Wicca is only about 50 years old its a bit rich that you claim any ideas to be original to your so called religion.

I believe that the reason that Christians and Wiccans are against each other, is due to their individual attitudes and values. I have a friend who is Wiccan .I myself am not religious. I hold nothing against Christians,as i have some lovely friends who follow the path of christianity. However, my Wiccan friend and i have also met many Christians, who, while being nice, are incredibly patronizing, and claim that while they are sure we are not evil, they must still attempt to convert us, as we are following the wrong path, and need to be saved. I have never tried to convince anyone that there beliefs are wrong, so i find it offensive and patronizing when people try, not just to convert me, but to convince me that my views are false, and my path is wrong. I am a great believer in freedom of choice, and the freedom to practice what you want (as long as it harms none of course). My Wiccan friend also finds it irritating when people try to preach to them about why Wicca is wrong, and, all of their (the converter's) scanty knowledge of Wicca is false. She often finds they state things which are NOT the beliefs or truths of Wicca.
If i do turn to religion in the future, i feel it will be a decision i make myself, as i do not respond to attempts to convert me. I think this key issue, of everyone having the freedom to practice what they want, (with harm to none), is the reason why Wiccans and Christians believe they must be against each other. This was not ment to offend anyone, Christian or Wiccan, i am simply trying to answer the question, and express my view.

(p.s; I don't get the star trek thing either)

To tell the truth, the most Wiccans I have met are teenagers that want to rebel or go against the system.  It just seems to me that all the Wiccan religon does is provide an outlet for rebelion, not worship.  Or maybee the Wiccans I have met are just full of it.  All I know is I have not met one with a serious belief.

Firstly, where the heck did the star trek thing come from? Random.  Secondly, Witches and Wiccans don't hate Christians, although as a Witch I sometimes get really angry when Christians claim that we worship the devil and demons and whatever, which we don't even believe in.  I agree with Ed that it would be nice if Christians would be a little more open minded and try to accept us.

There are a few crazies out there who smear the Wiccan faith, yet have the nerve to call themseleves "Wiccan" even when they disobey it's laws. Example, Geroge W. Bush and Episcolplainism of Christianity. GWB makes a bad example of Episcolpals.
What made you think about Star Trek and Wicca connected?

ok the star trek question comes from here:

The First of The Five Points of Wiccan Belief is called The Wiccan Rede. The Wiccan Rede states "An it harm none, do as you Will," although occasionally it reads "and ye harm none, do as ye will." The Wiccan Rede DOES NOT mean that one must tiptoe through life afraid to accidentally cause harm. The use of "an" is very deliberate, and in modern English is closer to "as long as." An expanded reading of the Rede, using both its implicit and inferred meaning, could read: "An it harm none, do as you Will, An it harm SOME, do as you ought." This "ought" is defined by the remainder of the ethics of Wicca and the life experiences of the individual. Put in modern words and form, the Rede says "If an action will cause no harm, do it freely, but if it has the capacity to cause harm, use your religious and other experiences to decide the best course of action that causes the least amount of harm to yourself and others." It should be here noted that most also believe in the Star Trek maxim "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few. Just to clarify it is a metaphore that people associate to a saying said in the show. Wicca and startrek are in no way related, the show just incorporate some of the wiccan beliefs inadvertantly.

In reference to Ed's answer, Christians do not hate or fear people of other faiths. Jesus said to love others as he loves us. And we do not believe that only God can perform 'magic'.The bible states that the devil has power,he was a former creation of God and uses it to bring believers to him. What God has created he also has the power to destroy but wanted to give us free will to choose the path we wanted to go down. Light or Darkness.Oh and Ed...people cant sell their souls to the devil because as Gods creation we belong to him.Where we end up depends on who we choose to follow.

Umm...What the hell...Christians didn't give the pentagram to Satanists. They used to use it to represent the five wounds of Jesus. Eventually Satanists adopted it themselves.
