Re: “Inside the AFA worship circle

Cute article, but I am a bit worried that non-Pagans will get an oversimplified and over-sexed view of us after reading it. (Did you seriously have to bring up sex magic? Out of all the meaningful rites and beliefs practiced by Wiccans, you thought THAT was the best way to represent us?) A lot of Christians who don't know about us tend to assume that we're all about orgies and the like--and your article did nothing to demonstrate our general view toward sex.

Yes, we believe sex is sacred, as the act which brings new life. But we also believe sex should only be performed consensually, respectfully, and responsibly. Non-symbolic sex magic is only performed by a small number of Wiccans, either out of discomfort with the general idea, lack of privacy, or lack of a consenting partner.

On a slightly different note, Wiccans worship a Goddess AND a God as equal, complementary deities. Mentioning the Horned One and leaving out his Lady is like describing the Christian Trinity and leaving out Jesus. Just sayin'.
