How many people practice this religion?
« on: August 23, 2011, 03:01:26 AM »
How many people actually practice this religion? Are there a lot? I have never met anyone who does, so I am just curious.

 I personally don't,  however I've met quite a few people who do, a lot more than I thought! Seems there is a lot more practicing wicca than there used to be.

I personally do practice Paganism as does my family. One reason many people do not speak up more quickly is because of a type of fear. For hundreds of years Pagans were persecuted. In my area I have dealt with people throwing dead cats at my front door and have lost a few jobs because my employer found out that I was Pagan. I know there are many people within the United States that follow the Pagan path, and in the UK many of the holidays are nationally recognized.

I use to practice years ago.  I was a part of a coven that had over a hundred members.  There is more of us out there then you think.  Sadly enough most of wiccans tend to hide.  I say "Say it proud, Say it loud!" blessed be.

It's sad to hear of such prejudice :-(

I have never met a person practicing this religion too.
I think if a person is not doing anything wrong to someone or to the society, it was not right to treat him unequally.

The prejudices are hard to deal with, but I've gotten very use to them. I live in a very Christian area. I would just like to say that I do not blame the Christian religion simply the people who insult and/or try to hurt. It took me a long time to realize the difference between a religion and the people within it. My only fear at this point is for my daughter. We are raising her in our faith and I can only hope that she will face an easier road than her father and myself.

I am a practising pagan and know many other people who are too. I appreciate the power of nature and it speaks to me in a way that other religions never have.
