Wicca In The Military: Friend Or Foe?

- Wicca in the Military: Friend or Foe. Does the word “Wicca” offend you. If you are like most people in the United States, then it does. Why does such a small word invoke such feelings of fear, hatred, and loathing. Ignorance is the reason. Many people do not know what Wicca is nor do they know about the people who follow it. Since there is such a negative connotation of Wicca in everyday society, would it be safe to say that Wiccans in the military are judged just as harshly. Is a Wiccan not as worthy of religious provisions as say, a Christian....   [tags: Religion Religious Wicca]
