    Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs! I hate how other people treat paganism is if it's some cult. Well guess what? Judaism, Christianity, AND Islam were once regarded as cults! Some people just need to stop being hypocritical and start being more accepting of other beliefs...

    k so I've watched a couple movies on television recently (for "Halloween") and one of them at least portrayed two different "types of witches". One was at least "nature based" and "good" but gah it was upsetting, even to a newbie. Now there...

    I think one of the worst ones is "The Wicker Man" (the original especially!!) No doubt there are films that are even more negative about Pagans but I certainly never want to see them or even know about them. They depress and enrage me -_-

    As A Convinced Roman Catholic ...

    (please don't call me "devout" because I don't deserve it) ... I had in good conscience to join y'all!My only caveat would be that never portraying pagans as evil would be foolish, just as much as never making a black, a woman, a gay person, etc., the villain would be.Of course I...

    Yes. It Is Bloody Annoying.

    I am a witch. I was a witch in my past life. I am also a good person. A lot of prejudice people need to realize that wicca/paganism is one of the most beautiful spiritualities one can find, we look for magic in the world, there is magic in the earth everday and all around us...

    All Of You Are Forbidden.....

    All of you are forbidden from writing, especially writing any movie scripts which portray witches and worlocks as good and beneficial. Are none of you paying attention? Telling the truth is against the rules! Why if you start doing this, next you will have used car salesmen...

    The Thin Shadow Line

    I do feel a bit put down sometimes, but also still appreciate the entertainment provided. I am a huge fan of many shows and movies that portray Pagans and Witches as both dark and light. I don't always agree with a writer's opinions, but I view most with the understanding that it...

    The Craft

    The Craft is probably one of the most accurate movies portraying Witches and Magic. Even the one who went crazy. She asked for power. She received it, and it drove her mad. Power corrupts. Yes. There are some people who use magic for ill. But true Witches know that you are to use...
