I have been away from the board for a while, but I noticed a lot of "witch" threads and thought it would be interesting to see how many Cauldronites consider themselves "witches" (Of whatever kind they may be).

I do not.  I neither practice Wicca nor have any kind of family tradition of witchcraft, I don't feel the word applies.  I have friends who are witches, and I've dabbled in Wicca, but it's ultimately not what I believe/practice.

I usually refer to myself as a neopagan, as academic as it sounds.

Hello All,

    I have been away from the board for a while, but I noticed a lot of "witch" threads and thought it would be interesting to see how many Cauldronites consider themselves "witches" (Of whatever kind they may be).

No, I'm not a witch.

My religious beliefs are firmly Pagan (pre-christian Northern European) but since I associate the term "witch" with my wiccan friends, and I am not of the same faith, I don't consider myself a witch.

I'm not saying all witches are wiccan, just that not all Pagans are witches.

My "witchy" friends seem to recognize this difference right away. I've never been reffered to as a witch, even though they know I'm fairly devoutly Pagan.
