    Post Why Wicca Is Not Celtic

    ....there is a body of people who believe that Wicca is the descendant of the religious ways of the Gaelic or other Celtic peoples (or 'Celts' as a general nomenclature). This simply is not the case.

    The following is a brief comparison of the Wiccan religion and Celtic religion. The purpose of this exercise is to dispel the notion that Wicca is Celtic, or derived from Celtic religion............

    ..........The pagan methodology and understandings of Gaelic spirituality survived the coming of Christianity and have continued to this day within the ways of people who are by and large nominally Christian

    Wicca hasn't impressed me very much. I tried to get in contact with their representatives near me for a task during my studies, the only chance of seeing them to talk about their "religion" was their monthly meeting at a pub. : Wicca all seems very new age,fantasy and hippie influenced.

    Do any of you take these religions seriously? Even tho I have tried, I always feel silly attempting to believe in these superstitions and practices. I took Ninjitsu for some time, and even tho it's a great martial art I couldn't embrace the mysticism involved. Sure, I love fantasy and lore, but that's where it ends.

    No, wicca and christianity is basicly the same shit but a diffrent thing. Maybee wicca is slightly preferable.It's another thing with our gods of old though...

    But hey, if more cute Nordish girls are involved it can't be so bad?

    Of course I do enjoy indigenous European legends and lore much more than the Semitic and Asian ones, it feels more natural. Which is why I have to laugh when these white Christians call European customs "pagan", and yet accept Semitic mysticism as native and real. As one Nordic-American caller to a radio show said, we are a conquered people, and that's part of the problem.

    "meeting" was probably giving them credit.It's more like a few people having wicca as an excuse for drinking beer in vast amounts.

    *edit* what are you getting at anyways?

    As a good Odinist/Heathen I rather look askance at wiccans and such, call 'em 'fluff bunnies' lol
    I don't respect theirs as a tradition or religion with any historical roots, it is rather a true "neo-pagan, new-age" mixed-bag hodge-podge of a religion. I work with an interesting case, calls herself a "christian witch", believes in some trappings of wicca or "the craft" as she calls it, but doesn't call herself wiccan. :icon1: I've nothing against witches, seidkronas, vitkis or what have you, but wicca is rather humorous to me :icon12: I and my kindred defintely do not have dealings with them in our fellowship, only those Tru to the Aesir and Vanir.
    "Yet Thomas Jefferson’s interest in the Saxon heritage went far beyond matters of philology. He held that the forward movement of British settlement in North America was a continuation of the original migration of Hengist and Horsa. It was all part of the vigorous expansion of a superior group of people. Jefferson even went so far as to suggest that the form of government being adopted in the emerging United States represented a restoration of the sublime Anglo-Saxon principles..."
