Hey guys, first of all please keep me in your thoughts or light a candle or send good vibes or something. I just got some scary news, but I'm not sure about everything yet so I'll update when I know more. Right now it's nothing to be super worried about, but it could easily turn to something bad.
With that out of the way...
I am sick of other Pagans and Witches having a "holier than thou," "I'm right, you're wrong," "It's my way or no way," kind of attitude. Yes, I am a total "Potterhead" an I LOVE fantasy! That, however, does NOT make me less of a Pagan or a Witch! Tastes in literature, movies, or any other form of entertainment do not necessarily influence someone's spirituality or anything else. Not being able to distinguish between fantasy/fiction and reality is when you have a problem. I was already on the Pagan path when I first read the Harry Potter books. I knew what was real and what wasn't. Harry Potter is entertainment, it isn't real. Does that mean that I should NEVER read or watch something that I enjoy simply because it doesn't paint a realistic picture of Witchcraft?
I think it's sad that so many of us take more criticism from other Pagans and Witches than from any other group of people.By all means stick to your beliefs and do what makes YOU happy, but leave everyone else alone and let them do the same!
