When some of us call people on their laxity it isn't ALWAYS just to be RUDE.
Five mnutes and a quick trip through "search" could have answered this quite nicely without the THREE HUNDREDTH ASKING of the same old question....
Except for the fact that the "search" option on this site does not work
!!! Seriously...every time I've tried using that thing, I click on it and...nothing happens. Click on it again. Nope. Nothing. It's broken...defunct...kaput...FUBAR. I don't know why we even still have it there, really.
But...on the subject of Wicca vs. Witch:
I am just a Witch. When I first left Christianity and began researching witchcraft, I started with Wicca first. But, the more I read, and the more I researched it, the more I realized that I didn't much like the religion
aspect of Wicca. Too rigid, too many rules. So, I looked around some more. Found a book called "Nocturnal Witchcraft" by Konstantinos. Read it. And then, it all made sense. I could follow a witchcraft path without being bound by the rules and regulations of Wicca. And so it now is. I threw the Wiccan Rede out the window years ago. I now follow my own personal Code of Ethics. They may not work for you, but they work for me. They are:1. Harm None?unless provoked.
?I can usually get along with most anybody, and it takes a lot to get me angry. I will give ample warning if I am getting ticked off, however, if these go ignored, I will strike hard, fast, and with much vengeance. I am also not against casting evil spells or curses if I feel it?s justified. I believe in revenge, and I am very methodical in the way I carry it out. I treat people the way they treat me. If you?re nice to me, I?ll be the same to you. If you?re a complete jerk, expect the same from me in abundance.2. Speak little, listen much.
?I usually tend to be quite quiet, unless I have something to say. Most of the time I quietly sit and observe people, learning their personality traits. I can read people like a book.3. Honesty and Loyalty are valued above all else.
?I am loyal to those who are loyal to me. I also hate liars. Those that choose to befriend me, find that I am a very powerful ally. Choose to be my enemy, however, and I will make your life a living hell.4. Always speak the truth?tell it like it is, no matter how painful it may be. Don?t lie.5. Show respect only to those who truly deserve it.6. Kill not for the sake of killing.
? I won?t kill another living creature without a good reason to. For example: when I kill a deer, it?s to provide me with food for the year. The exception to this rule is vermin, such as mice and rats. I hate those little bastards.7. You do me a solid, I do YOU a solid.
?In other words?if you do me a favor, I?ll do you a favor. And vice versa.8. If someone gives you something (like a gift), give them something in return.9. Help those that truly need help, but look after your own well-being first.10. Don?t charge money for services that don?t cost you anything (such as Tarot readings or performing weddings).
