However, even just here at TC I've run across too many people pushing for unity through homogenization and arguing the same way Bonewits does on the subject to feel comfortable not laying some of the blame at the feet of individuals who do seem to want "Pagan" to mean "Wiccan".

I agree with you on this point. There are a whole lot of regular Pagans who would really like Paganism to be a single religion with a very (Neo-)Wiccan flavor. As much as I would like to put most of the blame on various "big name" authors, I think quite a lot of it belongs on regular Pagans who really do not bother to look at things they aren't interested in seeing.

As for Isaac Bonewits, I've always liked him. He's one of the few "Big Name Pagans" who I'd go a bit out of my way to talk with as he is just a very neat person to talk to. I disagree with much of what he has said about Paganism over the years, but I really like him as a person.
