Ever remember, ye are the Hidden Children of the Gods. So never do anything to disgrace them. Never boast, Never threaten, Never say you would wish ill to anyone. If you or any not in the Circle speak of the Craft, say, “Speak not to me of such. It frightens me. ‘Tis evil luck to speak of it.” …
“‘Tis foolish men talk of witches flying through the air; to do so they must be light as thistledown,” and “Men say that witches all be bleared-eyed old crones, so what pleasure can there be in witch meetings such as folk talk on?” Say, “Many wise men now say there be no such creatures.” Ever make it a jest, and in some future time, perhaps the persecution will die, and we may worship safely again. Let us all pray for that happy day.
Wicca is as old as the earth herself. And like everything ancient misunderstood. Wicca teaches us to respect the bonds of women, men and the earth. It is a counter-narrative to patriarchal religions.
