    im not gonna get into a religious debate, but wiccan is a fairly popular religion that should be recognized. And you saying Wiccans are nuts is just being ignorant. Its probably saner than all the popular religions.

    I was bored and did a little more research on the subject. And I found a quote out there by George W. Bush that says Witchcraft[Wicca] is not a religion, and does not deserve any recognition. He was just asking for trouble with that comment.

    Not if it's not considered a religion to begin with.
