Default Wicca is the fastest growing religion in the U.S.

While many Christians today are closely monitoring the growth and activity of Islam, especially after 9/11, another religious movement has been steadily growing �under the radar and could become among the largest religions in the United States in less than five years.

Wicca is the fastest-growing religion in America, set to be the third largest religion by 2012, claims Marla Alupoaicei, who co-wrote the recently released book Generation Hex with fellow Christian author Dillon Burroughs.

The numbers of adherents are doubling every 30 months, she says.

Furthermore, every major city in the United States has networks of Wiccans, adds Burroughs.

Certain parts of the country, such as the Pacific Northwest, the mountain states (New Mexico and Colorado) and areas near Salem, Mass., are the strongest in the U.S.,he says. However, I live in Tennessee and have found pockets of Wiccans in Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia to interview. I didn't have to travel far or even outside of the so-called Bible belt to find Wiccans.

I guess the caring and sharing crowd with their MV's that are easier to understand just are not getting the job done as the old saying goes. So much for a purpose driven life.

Deuteronomy 18:10
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

IN The WORD OF GOD, the witch at the end of the above verse includes so called "white witches" (A Good witch according to wiccans)
We read that Rebellion is as the Sin of Witchcraft, so dress it up as good or not the Word Of God refutes it entirely

1 Samuel 15:23
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

No it's not and you can feel free to get a new wicker chair without the fear of being called a cultist.

I'm glad I was not defiling my home with devilish furniture. See, the sweet ol' southern lady that sold it to me called it a "wicka' chare".

NOTE TO ALL: My previous posts including this one is purely in jest. I just got tempted too much to play it for a while. Oops, now I have to start all over on my path to sinless perfection.
