Stand up for something even if it Means standing up alone.


I consider myself a wiccan, but i can't tell anybody. Why? Because I'm scared people will treat me differently because of my faith. I beleive in every god or goddess, demons, angels, ghosts, faeries, everything; but i still consider myself a wiccan. In California, if a wiccan got assaulted, the assaulty would NOT go to jail, if a christian got assaulted, the assaulty WOULD go to jail. Why?
Because "wiccans dont deserve justice." It's called the blood libel. Well I'm 13, I'm scared to state my opinions well as it is, I'm scared to be free in case I get hurt. Is it normal to be a young woman scared to live life her way? Because of what happened 200 hundred years ago and falsy accussed"witches" of crimes. Im scared to live life. Do I deserve this?

Of course you don't deserve that! You are facing an age old thing: religious persecution, and it's a sad concept indeed. I hope you're never ashamed of your beliefs; you are who you are.

Yeah for wiccans!  My friends a wiccan and i'm an athiest but i thought a lot of pagan religions looked cool.  If you're passionate about what you believe just move to a more excepting place when you grow up!
