Like many things nowadays Ashe people want to be noticed but not have to do anything for it . It's much easier to claim one is al for nature then it is to have to do anything that takes effort .


Of course there is always fear that others will target you , guess that depends more in this country on where you live then anything else . I have not heard of anyone claiming to be a Witch being attacked or even hassled , have you ?.
Actually, what I'm referring to is the feeling that there may be an underlying fear in the Pagan community, even by people who claim to be Wiccan. Have you encountered peopele who claim to be Wiccan, but are adamant that they are not witches?

Ashe here. You may also know me as Ragnell.  Like many, I've been MIA for some months.  I've missed TCC, and had to come back.  For those who don't know me I'm a retired Montessori teacher and I practice Wicca, though I enjoy learning about other pagan paths, too.  Love to talk shop so I'm hoping this site will rock'n'roll again.  New members feel free to jump in and have your say...

The frost giant thing sounds like a good Supernatural plot, doesn't it?  I can imagine the opening scene with a kid holding a $ilver Ravenwolf book.  Bwaaaaaahaha...

It does!  Ha!  I almost expect to see Crowley telling them to help the Winchesters :P

I just can't get over her telling people "Frost Giants are your friends!"  *shudders*

I've been noticing  a trnd in the community.  An increasing number of people are claiming to be "Wiccan, but not a witch".  Now the nuts and bolts of Wiccan theology aside, this makes me ponder.  Why is this happening?  Is there an underlying fear of, or prejudice against, witchcraft in our community that we won't admit to? 


I'd love some input from others about why this might be happening.

Because she tells teens to lie to their parents.

Because she talks down to the reader.

Because she pulls things out of her butt and claims it as fact, including all the "real witches" nonsense.

Because she's both very anti-Christian and yet tries to use Abrahamic practice to justify her claims about how ancient witchcraft as.

Because she thinks it a good idea for emotional teens to call on entities KNOWN to hate humans (frost giants).

Because there are much better books out there with far more in-depth information to spend your money on.

Not to mention she fibbed about her lineage back to Gerald Gardner and claimed Wiccan bona fides.  Which is guaranteed to p*ss a bunch of people off.  She is Black Forest Clan, which is an American witchcraft tradition, but it isn't Wiccan.

Slaver Ravingwoot, does appear to know her stuff, but her writing is misleading and given over to accommodate the fluffies. Where her books are concerned is more to the likening of a media whore bent on writing and publishing simply to put "something" out there and to rake in a few bucks. She writes to those who would read her stuff and not to those who would desire to learn.


Her writing can be said by some to be quite bigoted, as she preaches tolerance of other religions; but then she goes on to bash Christianity (and perhaps a few others) in another paragraph. Much of what she actually writes as I said is misleading or downright wrong or incorrect and this can be dangerous to someone learning. She also seems to give the opinion that the Craft and Wicca are the same thing and as we here all know, this is simply not the case. Not to mention her high-horse which is frequently climbed on to state that Witches don't do this and Witches don't do that.
