Shez :
#> Witchcraft is not a religion, its an art and craft, and like any other
#> craft it can be taught, learned practised and refined. Its no more

#> religious than a being a stonemason, a woodcarver, or a brewer..

a wonderful notion of witchery. (Ayin):
# can't say agree that witchcraft is not a religion.  i've got quite a
# few Wiccan friends and they are quite devoted to thier beliefs as a
# religion.  i've been allowed to participate in a few of thier
# ceremonies and though i have no belief in God as a deity, i found the
# Wiccan rites to be quite lovely.  

ceremonies, belief in a deity or deities, rites. sounds like religion.
I hear some governments recognize it as a religion. does that count too?

# what i especially love about my Wiccan friends is [their] love and 
# concern for the Earth.

that's my favourite part. Gaians are right protective. the best that
can be mustered by many religious is 'stewardship'.

# i really appreciate people who appreciate our beautiful planet as a
# sublime gift from The Supreme Whatever.

birthed? gifted? created? designed? intended? 
different categories of witch would probably answer differently.

	Christian witches: God (Jehovah-Jesus God) made it
	Wiccans: the Lord and Lady Fucked it Into Being
	Vaisnavites: Visnu made it and returns to it
	Naturist Nuwagers: It just grew that way!!
	Satanists: it is our duty to protect and cherish it!
