Top 10 Worst Stereotypes About WiccaDarkMatter1997 Wicca is a modern pagan religion founded in mid-20th century England. It is often stereotyped as being satanic which is absolutely false. Let me explain why it isn't with this list.
The Top Ten
They're not. Witches are nature worshippers who love peace and celebrate their individuality. - DarkMatter1997
All these are stereotypes about witches in general. Not specifically Wicca (while all Wiccans maybe witches; not all witches are Wiccan. Witchcraft has been around for thousands of years, while Wicca has only been around for less than a century). - clusium
Its old fairytales.
Yeah, witches aren’t always evil. The media just portrays them as such. - AliciaMae
They don't. Witches take responsibility for their own actions and don't blame any outside force. - DarkMatter1997
The pentacle has nothing to do with the Christian concept of Satan. In fact, some Christians view it as a Christian symbol and even wear it to protect themselves from Satan. - DarkMatter1997
I just realized that the pentacle symbol was how I draw stars. Heh heh. - PhoenixAura81
They don't. They don't even believe in him (the horned god they worship is actually the Greek faun god Pan, who is a god of nature. He was also around long before Christianity rose to fruition). - DarkMatter1997
It's not. A witch's book of shadows is where the witch keeps her spells, charms, ingredients and thoughts. It's more like a field journal (I mean I guess if the witch was practicing black magic it could be evil, but the book itself isn't evil, the magic practiced by the witch would be). - DarkMatter1997
Its not its just a sketchbook with all the Wiccan things written in it. Its not like the Christian Bible with far-fetched stories.
It's not. It's nothing more than just a tool you use (kinda like how you use a car or hammer). How you use it is what matters the most. - DarkMatter1997
They look like normal everyday people. - DarkMatter1997
Nope, there are male witches just like how there's female witches (male witches refuse to be labeled as warlocks as warlock actually means "oath breaker" which is very insulting to Wiccans and pagans. - DarkMatter1997
Where the heck did this particular stereotype come from?!?! - clusium
No war has ever been or ever will be fought in the name of Wicca. - DarkMatter1997
That's because Wicca has only existed for less than a century. No war has ever been fought in the name of Scientology either. - clusium
Clusium - So if Wicca was older it would've caused a war. Every religion will start a war. Lets hope the parody religions start wars lets think Pastafarians. There is ones who seriously believe a God who is a monster made of spaghetti and meatballs is real.
They don't (it's not even possible to fly up into the sky by riding on a broom). - DarkMatter1997
None of these characters are even Wiccan. - clusium
