Top 10 Worst Stereotypes About Wicca

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

1 All Witches Like to Cause Harm
2 All Witchcraft is Evil
3 All Witches Worship the Devil
4 All Witches are Green, Warty and Ugly
5 All Witches are Evil

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

6 The Book of Shadows is Evil

Its not its just a sketchbook with all the Wiccan things written in it. Its not like the Christian Bible with far-fetched stories.

7 The Pentacle is Evil and Satanic

I just realized that the pentacle symbol was how I draw stars. Heh heh. - PhoenixAura81

8 Wicca Has Caused Wars

Where the heck did this particular stereotype come from?!?! - 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.

9 All Witches are Female
10 All Witches Ride on Their Brooms

The Contenders

11 They can cast spells like Harry Potter, Sabrina Spellman, Mildred Hubble.

None of these characters are even Wiccan. - clusium
