F.A.Q. about Wicca!
Is Wicca a cult?
Answer: No, a cult has a rigid code you have to live by and is usually run by a charismatic leader who dictates the rules of behavior. A cult insists on obedience or you are ostracized.
WICCA, on the other hand allows each person direct access to the divinity as it has no "leader". Blessings come to those who do good deeds.
Do witches perform animal sacrifices?
NO, witches revere nature and all creatures in nature as an aspect of the divine.
Do Wiccans indoctrinate people to follow Wicca?
No, Wiccans are not allowed to preach or try to convert people. If you find Wicca and decide it is a path you want to look into a Wiccan will help you.
Do Wiccans believe in hell?
NO, they believe in a place called the Summerland where everyone and all animals go after death. It is a place of peace and rest where you are reunited with loved ones. Wiccans do not have an evil deity. Evil is a human quality we strive to avoid.
