I recently read your article on Wiccans and I must say I was disgusted to say the least. Do you actually believe that if someone is overweight, pale, wears black underwear or nailpolish or lipstick, have piercings, or wear leather or lace they are Wiccan? I must say this is Christianity at its worst. First off let me say im a Christian and this truely made me almost ashamed to be one and that takes a lot for me. You basically just said all teens are Wiccan. You also have accused Catholic priests of being associated with the devil. By even believing Wiccans are real you yourself have gone against the bible. Such pastors as yourself who have gone mad with power disgust me. I'm spreading the word about your evil site as we speak to every1 I can. Im going to do everything I can to put an end to this site. This disgraces Christians everywhere to say the least. Now every1 who reads this will think all Christians have this view of Wiccans. You make it seem as if only teens are Wiccan when in fact some adults are too. I truely hope someone can redirect your misguided views and bring you back down to earth. Amy Vermillion

To Whom it may concern, I'm not sure what you were thinking when you wrote, let alone published, this "sermon". Saying that the life of a Christian is easy is an outright lie. Being a Christian, a follower of Christ, requires us to be as much like Christ as possible. Christ's life was anything but easy. Lets put aside being crucified for a moment, I guess that would be a walk in the park for you. He was dogged at every turn by the religious leaders of His day who feared Him and wanted to kill Him. Lets talk about Paul. Paul was imprisoned, beaten, shipwrecked. He also never stopped in one place too long because he knew that God's work never stopped to rest. That is not a life that I envy or find easy. Christians have been martyred time and time again and they have looked their murderers in the face with love in their eyes. That is NOT easy.
I'd like to quickly address your belief that unbelievers are not welcome in church. The idea is insane. Jesus accepted everyone where they were at. He hated the SIN, not the sinner. I would allow an unwashed illegal alien to sit in front of me at Sunday service. I don't believe that smell is a requirment for admission into God's house. I might not like it, because I am a selfish human. I know that I am covered by God's grace, but I also know that I'm no where near perfect.
You are NOT doing God's will by spreading the lie that you live on a media so widely read as the Internet. I know that the beliefs you profess are wrong, but I will not judge you. My God will take care of that task, as it is His and only His.
I want to plead with you to remove this site from the Internet. I know that I cannot change your mind about anything. I'm praying that God will touch your hearts and do His work in you. God worked through Peter and 3000 people were saved in one day. I'm not Peter, but God is God and He will do His will in this situation. In any case, I pray that God will be with you and know that I am praying for you.
God Bless you, Justin - Justin Cross
P.S. You said in this sermon that we do not need to have courage or motivation. Did Jesus lack these attributes?
You need to learn your facts. One of my best friends is Wiccan and she would NEVER kill me or anything else that is living. I happen to be fat or overwieght, but I am not a Wiccan. I wear black a lot because it hides my curves. One of my best friends is pale and she is not a Wiccan she just doesn't tan very easily. If they put on make-up, they may be trying to hide blemishes or their oily face. So, you need to get your facts straight and quit being so prejudice and start getting along with other religions because God wants you to. He happens to love everyone. He forgives sinners. The Bible tells me so. I read it everyday and understand it well. I am certain you are doing this for attention and you certianly shouldn't be a pastor. Pastors should know this. Catholics are not Wiccan, they just worship God in a different way,---my best friend Ashley. I believe that as long as you believe in God it shouldn't matter how you worship him. Ashley's family is half-Catholic and half-Christian. She knows that no one is Wiccan in the Catholic religion. Now, I know that I can not just expect you to totally change, but you should not post things like you did. Very wrong, God doesn't like that. You must not judge others. It's like, don't judge a book by it's cover. "Love thy Brother." quote from the Bible itself. I don't know what copy of the Bible that you got, but it is not the right one. God wants us to do good and not evil. But, I would like to hear what you have to say. So email me.
Oh! I have my name in the Lambs Book of Life and I have been saved and
"a rabid young Wiccan girl wearing a black cape burst into the Landover Baptist 11 a.m. Sunday morning church service and flung the bloody carcass of a headless black cat across 297 pews."
This girl is not obeying wiccan law that says 'An it harm none, do as thou willt'. Either this girl is NOT a wiccan, or she calls herself a Wiccan, but does not follow its most basic of laws.
"Wicca, is just a fancy word that insecure unsaved teenagers who hate their parents use to describe their little club"
insecure unsaved teens? judge and be judged my friend. No matter how many anti-witch quotes you may through at me (which are all out of context) you can NEVER deny Matthew 7:1-2
"Wiccans kidnap Christian children and drink their blood to seal their commitment to Satan"
You may have again forgotten the Wiccan Rede "An it harm none, do as thou willt" Wiccans must be peacful (if they follow wiccan rules). Drinking blood is VASTLY beyond what they are allowed to do.
"My guess is that the little Devil worshipper who slipped into our Sunday Morning service last week, did so because she got some inside information about what we were going to release on our website this month."
That is right, she probably is a devil worshipper, not a wiccan (who deny the existence of any devil)
"Please keep in mind, that if you see anyone that fits ANY of the descriptions you are about to read, anywhere on your local church property, call the police IMMEDIATELY!"
Not if you are in America you wont. Religous discrmination is not allowed here.
"and to commit bizarre hate crimes against the true body of Christ (Baptists), their sworn enemy." You information is SO incredibly false. Wiccans have NO enemy. If someone who calls themselves a wiccan does a hate crime, just remind them, hate is OUTLAWED in their religion.
"Wiccans are given to the piercing of skin as a sign of submission to their master, Satan" What kind of fairytale is this?? If you would have spent a solitary moment researching Wicca, you would know that they have NOTHING to do with Satan. Do you know what the Bible says about falsness and gossip?
"Wiccans are under a contract with Satan to wear black. It is one of the first things they learn when they are indoctrinated into their cult. You can spot them mostly in leather, lace, black fingernail polish, eye makeup, and lipstick."
The above describes a GOTH, NOT a wiccan. Their religon is about loving the enviroment and being one with nature. It has nothing to do dress.
"It is a well-known fact that Wiccans only bathe once a month, as such" I wonder if a wicca would pass as many judgements and assume as many things as you are right now? Must i point again a Matthew 7:1-2?
"Most Wiccans congregate in groups that prey on loners. They are generally a quiet lot because they are constantly thinking about new ways to kidnap True Christian. children and drain their bodies of blood." More propaganda.
"Wiccans are also known to tear out pages from the Bible (especially pages that have red writing on them). They use them to roll marijuana cigarettes into something they refer to as "a joint." This is the most objectional thing that i have found in your entire article. This is the reason why: If you would have ever read ANYTHING about Wicca, you would easily know that it is STRICTLY against wiccan law to breathe any air that is cluttered with smoke or unclean. It is even more against Wiccan law to num and of the sences or be intoxicated. EVEN WORSE FOR YOU: In your OWN article (which is linked to YOUR page), you say: "Drugs and alcohol are not cool, she tells her parents. And she has a much more positive attitude". What?? Now you say that Wiccans dont get intoxicated (and are finally right)??? It must be upsetting to contradict oneself.
" In Exodus, Chapter 22, Verse 18, God INSISTS: "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live." " Correct, and at that time witches were people who poisned other, called up the dead, and drank others blood. Unfortunately you typed a whole story on wicca without knowing a thing about it, so you wouldnt know that it is against wiccan law to harm anyome EVER.
Do not get too upset. I read your sermon, and it was fantastic. No inconsistencies whatsoever. Whoever wrote the wiccan article should apologize for spreading falsness instead of truth. Also, they passed more judgement than i have ever seen before my own eyes (saying we should kidnappe a wicca!!) Why must you judge, it is for god, not you!! i suggest you find out some more information on wicca before you go witchhunting because your page is full of inconsistences and propoganda (ie saying that wiccans are druggies when it is against wiccan law to smoke or drink. this includes EVEN caffenine). Love your enemies. This has nothing to do with kidnapping, stalking, etc. May the LOVE of Jesus Christ, the ONE judge be with you.
Thank you for your time.
Your friend in Christ
In my humble experience, people who read obscene, paranoid, and conspiritorial 'messages' into relatively benign things have something to hide, or need to get a life.
Rolling about in poop, indeed.
Rev. Dr. Mark S Glover
I take it you are confusing interpretation with founding history. Which is sad, maybe this will help
Christ's followers were willing to let them selves be martyred. Mohammed's followers simply killed, stole from, rapes and enslaved non Muslims.
No amount of intellectual acrobatics performed by Muslim apologists can justify the intolerant and ruthlessness of Muhammad’s religion.
Islam is peace? Tablighi this kind of myth is terribly sad... Mohammed basically made up Islam. He was a pedophile thug who had his followers murder, rape and steal from none Arabs.
Mecca? Mohammed tried to get Jerusalem as his holy place but when the Jews rejected him as a prophet he returned to Mecca and had his murderous followers march around and kiss a rock that pagan Meccans had been worshipping long before Mohammed was born.
Islam was born in violence, expanded only by violence and will die in violence. To call it peaceful not even close to its roots and Mohammed’s intentions. Those who intrepid it as such are ether ignoring is founding bloody history or simply lying to themselves.
Muhammad encouraged his handful of followers to attack the caravans, kill the men, rape the women and bring the booty (20% for himself) to please Allah, while assuring them that if they are killed their rewards will be “young boys” for sex, rivers of wine, and many hurries in the other world. This is backed by Quran and Ahadith.
Muhammad’s preference for young girls (Ayesha was 9 years old when he consummated his “marriage” with her) rather at an advanced age and how he is unabashed to make Allah reveal Quranic verses to justify his lust for women and his sexual appetite.
Winwoods Reade said; “A sincerely religious man is often an exceedingly bad man” This fact applies to no one more than to Muslims. Here is the proof: “When you meet the unbelievers, strike off their heads; then when you have made wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives.” (Quran47.4).
And as for Christians and Jews who rejected him he has this to say: "Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given and believe not in God, or the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle have forbidden..."( Quran. 9:29)
Through Islam, many civilized nations lost their identity, their dignity and humanity to bow in front of a savage god of a bunch of uncultured Arabs and follow the wimps of a fanatic and schizophrenic bloodthirsty madman of Arabia. Islam is the enemy of science, of freethinking, of reason and of human rights. It acts as a powerful break on the advancement of civilization.
As a Pagan, who is also a journalist, editor and publisher, I am deeply offended by the misinformation contained in these paragraphs. To profess yourself as Christians, and yet blatantly lie this way is a true shame.
If this is meant as a joke, it is in very, very poor taste. If it is meant to be taken as fact, I challenge you to meet before the media and prove your accusations.
Your description of Wiccans is inaccurate, and the recommendation that the police be called is ludicrous. Many police departments are already aware of the legitimacy of the Wiccan faith, and will not play into the hysteria of overzealous individuals who this being Wiccan is a crime in itself.
Your organization - I can hardly call it a "church" - is opening itself to legal action for slander, and not just from Wiccans, but from members of the Jewish and Catholic faiths.
My advice would be to remove this article from your website, at once.
Quill Mastercraft -
I am very unhappy with a article I have just read coming out of http://www.landoverbaptist.org/news0702/wiccans.html. I will not write this email in a judgemental way, but I will write this email in a Wiccan point of way, for I am Wiccan, have been for Nine years. The scouts that you have out in supposebly "Wiccan Communities" are in the wrong ones. What is Wicca? Wicca is under the constitution as a LEGAL religion. It has nothing to do with "Satan, Devil" for that is in the Christian Religion. Wicca comes from the old religion from way back when before Christ was ever born. There is no blood sacrifices, no kidnapping of children, no satan worshipping, that's all been blown out of porportion by people who are into the Black Arts. Now you wonder what is the difference between the Black Arts and Wicca? Well my friends let me tell you.
Wicca, what is it....it is a nature based religion. A peaceful religion. There is one thing that all Wiccans belive in and that is our creed, "An ye harm none, do what ye will" We worship the Goddess and the God. Not your God, but in a way it could be your God for God and Goddess are in every living thing on this planet. The Black Arts are giving Wiccans the bad reputation. They are the ones that are doing what you are accusing of. But they are not WICCANS.
As for the "black clothes and multiple peircings" that's everybody. There are many people in every relgion with peircings, and yes even in CHRISTIANITY there are people with multiple pericings.
In reading this article and the following one http://www.landoverbaptist.org/sermons/witches.html I have come to the conclusion that there is no changing your minds. There is no way to reason with people like you. I have said my peice, I have said what needed to be said, that Wicca is not evil, nor is Christianity, nor is the rest of the religions in the world.
You have abused and mistreated many Wiccans and the Wiccans from all over the world deserve an apology. Whether or not we get it is a different story, but you know in your hearts and souls what you have done, you may think that it is right, but it is not.
A very concerned Wiccan - Star Child
I live in England, and we have a baptist church here, and our attitude is to respect other peoples beliefs, not to condem them.
Oh yes, and I am a practicing witch. I am not ashamed of this, in fact, I am proud of my beliefs. I am overweight, yes, but I do not dress in black, or wear black cloths. Your list of physical charicteristics is completly wrong, and in no way bares any relation to the thousands of practicing witches who live quiet, law abiding lives and would not dream of ahrming another human being. I do not hex others, or indulage in blood sacrifices, I believe in love and compassion for all. Even for you, because it is through love that we find ourselves. We respect ourselves, and those around us, from our neibours and friends to the earth benieth our feet.
I have only compassion for you, and for your lives that seem to be filled with hate and malice towards those who you can nor understand.
John J Shaughnessy - aka (Debra Velky)
I was browsing your site when I found the banner that said "Un$aved NOT welcome". Doesnt this totally negate the Baptist philosophy? I went to a Baptist school for nearly 4 years (I am a Methodist and a devout Christian) and they tried to witness to people not of the Christian faith. I think that you have the wrong idea about unsaved people. I think you should change your state of mind and be more open-minded and allow them to browse your site. For all you know, they could be considering converting. Just a suggestion.
- Concerned Follower - Wes Coleman
Having just read your article on wicca, I have become saddend and horrified that there are still uneducated, misinformed people today.
I am a slim, petite 20 year old wiccan girl, with a healthy tan, a preferance for colourful, cheerful clothing, and am VEGETARIAN ( means I DONT eat meat or drink blood from any animals, Including humans, old and young alike). I take great pride in my appearance, and shower everyday, so I dont smell! I consider myself to be healthy, of sane mind, and intelligent. I have woked HARD and HONESTLY throughout my schooling, and have NEVER cheated to obtain good grades. I am a student of veterinary nursing,owing to my deep love and respect for all of Mother Natures creatures, human beings included.
I have chosen Wicca as my religion, mainly because it is a very welcoming, unbiased faith. It opens its doors to everyone, old or young, white or black, gay or straight, male or female. It teaches its followers to be tolerant, to have a deep love and respect for nature and all of its creation, and to live at peace with the world. It DOES NOT teach or encourage its followers to murder, hurt or maime any living creature. Infact, one of its teachings is the Wiccan Rede, which states "An' it do no harm, do what thou will". This basically means that any practising Wiccan is bound by this oath, and would not commit any act that would harm a fellow being in any way. As for Satan, who is Satan?! Satan is an entity created by christians, to encourage people away from Wicca, and similar beliefs. Satan was originally based on the Celtic horned god, Cernunnos, god! of the hunt. We do not believe in Satan! Satanists, i believe, however do. But that is a TOTALLY different, unrelated set of believes to Wicca. You seem to have the two mixed up.
You are correct in saying that Wiccans use a knife (or Athame, as it is correctly called), but this is purely for magical purposes ONLY, and not for sacrifices, blood shedding, or harm. As i have mentioned before, we do not commit or condone such heinous acts
Some Wiccans do join covens, but this is so that we can be with like-minded people, and also for support ( in much the same way as christians attend church). These covens are headed by a High Priestess, or Priest, not a warlock, blood guard, or litch king. Covens strongly uphold the Wiccan Rede.
I feel that singling out people who are overweight, pale, have piercings or tattoos, are bright and clever, wear 'unconventional' clothing and silver jewellary, or have a quiet disspossition, is an extrembly iresponsible and dangerous thing to do! Just because a person is/has any of the above, does not mean that they are Wiccan. They could very well be a Christian! A good friend of mine is Baptist. She attends church on a weekly basis, and comes from a long line of Baptist family. Yet, if someone was to go on your description of what a Wiccan looks like, she would be mistaken for a Wiccan. She is extrembly pale (she was born that way), has several piercings, and a couple of tattoos!
To encourage people, especially children, to shun, hunt down, and even attack someone of differing beliefs is absolutely dreadful ( I have noted that you have attacked the Jewish, Mormon, and Catholic religions in the same article). What kind of example are you trying to set? Catholics are the founders of the christian faith, and worship the same God and Jesus that you do. Why are you calling them Wiccan? I have been led to believe that christians are taught tolerance, and love for all mankind. Why is yours missing?
To me, this article holds views that were similar to Aldolf Hitler, the Nazi leader. He too believed that many beliefs, including Judasim, were evil. Look at what that helped to cause! A second world war, pain, suffering and death of thousands of innocents, and mass destuction. Doesnt seem very christian, or wiccan, does it?!
I understand and respect that people are entitled to their own opinions and beliefs, as long as they dont harm or interfere with another being. My life moto is 'live, and let live'. It is something that I have always believed in, even before becomming Wiccan. I wish more than anything, that everyone, especially people like you, could also follow it.
Thank you for hearing me out.

Ps I understand that this email is open to alterations, and modifications. Thats fine, but what would you be trying to prove if you were to alter it, or twist my words?
PPs No I will Definately NOT be cursing or hexing any body. I live by The Wiccan Rede, and causing harm and distress is not in my nature.
I am sending you this email cause i have a question. What is your beliefs? I try not to judge people in their beliefs, but someone sent me an article that was on your website about tampons. I personally dont use them, (sorry to get a little too personal), but i know people that do, and i personally dont think they arent going to hell. It is their personal choice what to use. I also believe that they are not satan's fingers, it is just cotton.
I do belief in god. I do love him and respect him, and try to pray on a regular basis to him. If i miss a day or two that means i am not going to hell. God knows that i love him and i know that he loves me. but i do wonder sometimes why he makes certain things happen to good people. For instance, why did god allow someone like me to be raped? i have been wondering that for many years, and i am 24.
In closing, i sent the article about the "T" to my cousin in England who is a priest, who has been in the company of such like the Queen and the late Princess of Diana, and he was appalled. He thought it was the most sick article that he ever has read.
Thank you for taking the time to read my email,
thank you, for paying attention and considering our request on welcoming us to your church.

Now beings you're probably going to write back with something about how you're worried about how the devil has a grip on me, or how you wish I wasn't deceived, which I am NOT, I will wrap this up. My parents are both Christian and they respect my religion, as they see it is harmless and nothing but purity. Maybe you could learn the same
Learn what you're dealing with before you say anythign against it
as far as judging others goes here is my biblical backup : Matthew 7:1-5 " Do not judge, or you to will be judged. for in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in you're brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
How can you say to your brother , let me take the speck out of your eye, when all the time there is a plank in your own eye ? You HIPOCRITE, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brothers eye.
I also saw on your website where it said "unsaved are not welcome as Jesus commanded "
that is just not true! my biblical backup is: Matthew 18:12-14 and Luke 15:4-7
as Christians aren't we supposed to love and try to be like Christ? Jesus did not isolate himself from the sinners he hung out with beggars,whores,thieves,murderers,and satan worshipers. how can anyone see the hope of eternal life in Jesus Christ if we isolate them and don't show them gods love ,forgiveness and acceptance?
your brother in Christ,
p.s. if there is anyone that is reading this that feel's the same as i do please e-mail me my e-mail address is :
firstname.lastname@example.org god bless!
"human hippo, Rosie O'Donnell" I thought God loved all the little and BIG children? What kind of message are you sending to children by calling Ms. O'Donnell a hippo. What does God say about name calling? Your warped message, if it had any validity at all, is lost in your juvenile name calling antics. You scare me more than any homosexual, pot smoking, van driving, movie going American Citizen ever could. Hang in there Mr. Paranoid Pastor. We are coming to get you.
PS. Don't allot of Churches utilize vans to transport their parishioners.....(an enclosed vehicle suggesting deviant activity occurring within)
A Brother In Christ -
Also in the second paragraph you wright:
"From what we can gather, like Jewish people, Wiccans kidnap Christian children and drink their blood to seal their commitment to Satan."
So what you're saying here is that Jesus drank blood to seal his commitment to Satan because Jesus was Jewish. Anyway this is wrong as the Wiccan Rede clearly states "An it harm none, do as ye will" and drinking blood would definitely harm someone.
Now lets look at the description of a Wiccan (or Witch)
"Wiccans are generally overweight and of pale complexion" Many people are overweight not just Wiccans and there are many overweight Christians to. As for the pale complexion I personally am quite tanned so that is incorrect.So basically from your description no Christian would ever catch a true Wiccan.,
"Look for multiple piercing" I have one set of studs in my ears. Lots of teenagers have multiple piercing as this is the fashion at the moment.
"Wiccans are under a contract with Satan to wear black" Personally I do ware black a lot but a lot of my friends who are Wiccan don't, one likes really bright pinks,reds and yellows.
"Wiccans only bathe once a month" I bathe every day I can't stand being dirty so that is wrong and quite disgusting!
"Wiccans wear lots of silver jewelry that is never clean" I do ware silver jewelry but not a lot (one bracelet and one necklaces) like I said I like things to be clean so my jewelry is not dirty.
I am very insulted that you think that my good grades are not through studying! I do a lot of studying for my exams and I don't ask the God or Goddess for help.
"Most Wiccans congregate in groups that prey on loners" An it harm none... remember the Rede?!?You really should read you on what your righting about before you brain wash most of the Christian community.
"Wiccans like to purchase knives and swords" We do use an athame, double edged (blunt) knife, to cast a circle (sacred place where no evil can enter) Early Christians did this before the churches. This came from Paganism, of which Wicca is a form of.
"Wiccans are also known to tear out pages from the Bible" Why would we do that? We don't believe that Wicca is the only path to the slumber lands (heaven) and that all religions are correct for the people who follow them.
"like the Mormon Church, the higher ups (Wiccans refer to them as "Elite Warlocks, Blood Guards, and Litch Kings")" Not that I'm aware of.

(not an unsave didiot)
Sincerely in Christ,
The thing that bothers me the most is your slogan, "Unsaved not welcome." The purpose of a Church is to help people get saved and become stronger Christians. By saying that unsaved are not welcome, is totally depleting the purpose of a church. The Bible says to go out and preach his word, even to the unsaved.
Secondly, giving out cell phones to people who become saved is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Becoming saved is a gift in itself, and I totally disagree with the fact that they get a cell phone as a reward for becoming saved. Jesus gave his life for us on the cross, and to become saved, we shouldn't need a bribe.
It sounds to me like your church is very controlling. Your church sounds very money oriented. You shouldn't have to pay to attend Church. I do not think Churches should have golf courses and amusement parks either.
Q: Would you allow an illegal alien who hasn't bathed in weeks to sit in front of you during services?
A: No! Unsaved are NOT welcome!
How can you be sure this man is not saved? Foreign countries have Christian churches also. This man could be saved, just like I am.
I took one of your little quizzes, I got one answer wrong, and your pop up windows are insulting me calling me "an unsaved idiot." How dare you call someone who misses an answer an unsaved idiot. That is so offending and this will make people never want to become members of your Church. I can tell you this, I am saved and I know I will be in Heaven when the time is right. Would you like to take my quiz? If you got one answer wrong I WOULD NEVER CALL YOU AN IDIOT, I would simply correct you.
Please email me back, containing all your thoughts, I would love to have some discussions with you.
My name is Lisa and I just have one question. The transcript posted on your website on the "Black Jesus" question, do people in your congregation really talk that way about the black race? If you do then that is fine but I just want to know is it some kind of hoax or something. I am going to print it out and use it for my research. The tone and the language of some of the responses were a bit racist. Calling the Disciples a rap group because someone thought they might have been black?
I am not judging you I just want to know are these your beliefs. As I stated, I would like to use this in my research and I just want to make sure it is not a joke.

This is in response to your article about the "rabid Wiccan." Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Angela, and I am an ordained minister residing in the state of Washington. I was raised in a strict Pentecostal family, and watched my oldest brother graduate from seminary school and go on to be a Pastor for the First United Pentecostal Church. There are a few things that I would like to address about the information contained in your article. Your information is straight out of the Dark Ages. Where did you get this information? From the Malleus Maleficarum? (For your information, the Malleus Maleficarum was a book written by 2 Dominican monks, Kramer and Sprenger, published in 1486, starting the reign of terror known as the Burning Times.) Unfortunately, then, as it is now, the information contained therein was fantastical and outlandish, much like the information contained in your article.
I shall take this time to correct the misinformation, so that there can be a better understanding of a perviously unorthodox "religion." That which is written in red are my words, information gleaned from 10 years of research about this "religion."
"...a rabid young Wiccan girl wearing a black cape burst into the Landover Baptist 11 a.m. Sunday morning church service and flung the bloody carcass of a headless black cat across 297 pews." Wiccans, as a whole, believe in the sanctity of life and would never harm another living thing for fear of retribution from their Higher Power. They also believe in Karma, the return of that which is put into the world, and would seriously consider the consequences before committing any act that may harm another living being. "...detained the Devil's harlot for questioning..." Wiccans don't believe in Satan, the Devil, Lucifer, or Hell. Wiccans also do not believe in the existence of evil as Christians know it, because they believe that there are positive and negative forces in the world: i.e. life\death, sow\reap, create\destroy. Evil is not part of their equation. So, how could she be the "Devil's harlot" if she is truly a Wiccan? "...Pastor Deacon Fred explained, “Wicca, is just a fancy word that insecure unsaved teenagers who hate their parents use to describe their little club.”..." Wicca is an actual religion recognized by the U. S. Armed Forces. It is an earth-based, Goddess-centered, woman-oriented way of life that predates Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. It began more than 35,000 years ago in what is now Europe, Asia, and Russia. "...thousands of Christian moles placed in covens, chat rooms, and schools all across America. “They feed us some pretty gruesome stuff about Wiccans,”said Pastor Deacon Fred. "From what we can gather, like Jewish people, Wiccans kidnap Christian children and drink their blood to seal their commitment to Satan."..." Neither Jewish people, Wiccans, nor any other religion inside and outside of Christianity drink the blood of Christian children. As stated above, Wiccans do not believe in Satan or anything pertaining to the Devil. This way of thinking is reminiscent of the Burning Times/Inquisition as well as the Nazi regime. "...undergo extensive training in order to spot the latest breed of unsaved trash, the Wiccan, or, as the True Christian® founding fathers of America called them, Witches." The Founding Fathers of America, contrary to popular belief, were not Christian. Nor were most of the Presidents of the United States. "The Bible is not my book, nor Christianity my religion." - Abraham Lincoln. "The Christian system of religion is an outrage on common sense." - Thomas Paine. Thomas Jefferson wasn't Christian, neither was John Hancock or Benjamin Franklin. Just thought I would let you know. The "witches" that they hung, burned, and/or tortured were not actually witches. It was an easy way to get rid of neighbors, rivals, old women with no man to protect them, the dregs of early colonial society. Sad, but true. "These sorts of people do not visit churches because they are looking for salvation. They are there to harass True Christians®, cast spells, throw hexes, and to commit bizarre hate crimes against the true body of Christ (Baptists), their sworn enemy. We also believe that True Wiccans are receiving orders directly from the Vatican, which makes the situation even more dangerous." Wiccans believe not only in a Father God, but in a Mother Goddess, because, according to their belief system, a man cannot create alone. They also believe that there is no one true and right religion for everyone, that each individual person is free to follow their own path to the Light of God. The Wiccan religion is not based on dogma or a set of beliefs, nor on scriptures or a sacred book revealed by a great man. Wicca takes its teachings from nature, and reads inspiration in the movements of the sun, the moon, and the stars, the flights of birds, the slow growth of trees, and the cycles of the seasons. They do not "throw hexes" because of their belief in Karmic retribution, for the same reason that they do not "commit bizarre hate crimes" against anyone. No one is their sworn enemy, and they do not "take their orders from the Vatican." "Wiccans are generally overweight and of pale complexion. If they are not pale, they use powder or makeup (even the boys!) to generate the illusion of paleness or death." Unfortunately, that also describes a teen fad called Gothic. Besides, most of America is overweight. Most Wiccans dress in earth colors, and refuse to wear make-up. "Wiccans are given to the piercing of skin as a sign of submission to their master, Satan. Look for multiple piercing and piercing in peculiar places like the nose, cheeks, eyebrows, lips, fingertips, chin, forehead, tongue, and on the shocking devil’s tip of the ear! Some Wiccans pierce their genitals as well. If you happen to peek over into the stall next to you and see a urination stream spraying in three directions (to mock the Trinity), it is likely the person is a Wiccan who just had the tip of his penis carefully pierced by his coven leader. (NOTE: Most coven leaders are either Catholic priests or tattoo parlor owners)" Most of America, teens and adults alike, are pierced and tattooed. It, like the Gothic dress and manner, is a fad. Most teens and adults who have multiple piercings do it for the shock value, not because they are claiming any particular religion or faith. Most coven leaders are NOT Catholic priests nor are they tattoo parlor owners. That is asinine to belief such a thing. Most coven leaders are Wiccans themselves, with the same beliefs as the members of their covens. The reason some men have their genitalia pierced is because they believe it enhances the sexual experience. Same with many women. I know many Christians who have their genitalia pierced for that exact reason. "Wiccans are under a contract with Satan to wear black. It is one of the first things they learn when they are indoctrinated into their cult. You can spot them mostly in leather, lace, black fingernail polish, eye makeup, and lipstick. Some Wiccans even wear black underwear! But since you are a Christian, you won’t have to see that unless you capture one." I cannot stress this enough: Wiccans do not believe in Satan, nor do they worship such a figure. Wicca is not a cult. David Koresh was a cult, Jim Jones was a cult, Charles Manson is a cult. Wicca is not. The leather, lace, black fingernail polish, eye makeup, and lipstick are all signs of the Gothic fashion, not of Wicca. "It is a well-known fact that Wiccans only bathe once a month, as such; they have a distinctively unpleasant odor they try to hide by wearing perfumes like patchouli or wolf’s bane." Wiccans bathe no less than twice a week. Those who have unpleasant body odor are people with poor hygeine. People who believe that they should only use natural products on their body wear pathcouli, as do Middle Eastern people and those of Mexican origin. "Wiccans wear lots of silver jewelry that is never clean. If you see someone wearing rings, amulets, broaches, or necklaces caked with green mold, most likely that person is a Wiccan." I know of several Christians who don't clean their silver jewelry. It is a known fact that silver tarnishes very easily and very quickly. "Wiccans usually bring home better grades at school than most of their peers. This is not because they are more intelligent, but rather because they cheat by casting spells and hexes on their teachers. Their master (Satan) is also highly adept at moving their pudgy little fingers in the right direction on a test paper. It is also important to note here that if a Wiccan is sober enough to vote, it will always be for a Democrat. The word "democrat" is closely associated with the word, "demon." Most True Christians® commonly refer to Democrats as "Demoncrats" and already keep a firearm handy during election time, so this information might be redundant for some." Wiccans study like Christians do. They do not cast spells or hexes on their teachers, for fear of Karmic retribution. Wiccans have no master, for they do not believe in Satan. Few Wiccans imbibe, and even fewer become intoxicated. Why would a Christian need a firearm during election time? I believe it states in the Bible: "Thou shalt not kill." "Most Wiccans congregate in groups that prey on loners. They are generally a quiet lot because they are constantly thinking about new ways to kidnap True Christian® children and drain their bodies of blood." Wiccans do not prey on loners. They are quiet because, as one Wiccan told me: "We are afraid of being persecuted again, like what happened during the Burning Times." They would rather not be bothered by anyone. "Wiccans like to purchase knives and swords from master Wiccan craftsmen who camp out at Renaissance Festivals (Renaissance Festivals are run by the Catholic Church - LBC Creation Science Vatican Study, 1983, pg 114-127). It's a preference of blade over gun because a good part of their satanic ritual includes a precise cutting of Christian flesh into bite-size Jesus steaks that are oftentimes smoked and cured into what Wiccans jokingly call, "Jesus Jerky." These fat little demons get a real hellish kick out of sitting around their school lunch table, nibbling on Christian flesh while classmates look on unaware." Wiccans do like to purchase knives and swords, mostly because their religion makes use of them during rituals. The blades in question are ceremonial, meaning they are not sharpened and are meant only for display. To sharpen such a piece would ruin the integrity of the blade and the appearance of the piece. Most Medieval fairs are held for those who wish to re-enact the Middle Ages. "Wiccans are also known to tear out pages from the Bible (especially pages that have red writing on them). They use them to roll marijuana cigarettes into something they refer to as "a joint."" Wiccans do not tear pages out of Bibles, because they respect such an important piece of the Christian religion. They would not want a Christian to rib the pages out of their books, so they don't desecrate the Bible. Addicts on the other hand, ones who are addicted to drugs, WILL tear out the pages of a Bible and use it to roll a joint. I was once an addict myself, but, for the grace of God, my addiction was removed from me.
Now, as far as Exodus is concerned, that took place in the Old Testament, when God was wrathful and One to be feared. However, His Commandments, His Laws, are NOT to be broken, regardless of the situation.

First let me congratulate you on showing your true colors. Not only are you and your church an abomination unto God, but you have proven why people like you should not be allowed to own a website, let alone a quote 'church.' I don't know who your God is but the Lord Almighty, God of heaven and Earth, Jesus Christ....you are NOT speaking of or for!!!! Who do you think you people are to desecrate the bible as you do? What you speak of is taken WAY out of context to what the Bible says. You people are sick and I doubt very much you are saved. Christians DO NOT act in the manner that you seem too. And Christians DO NOT treat others as you do!! Get a grip Sir, and may God save your soul before it is too late. HOW ABOUT 'LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THEMSELVES'
