Persecution of Wiccans

By August 3, 2003

Follow me on:

Religious intolerance has reared its ugly head once again as a Wiccan in Burnet, Texas. They already had to move once because of community pressure and threats - and now it looks like it is going to happen again.

KXAN reports:

The group says they relocated to Burnet in April after pressure to leave from community groups in Kingsland. They say they're receiving threats in one case to burn down their business.

It's a shame when this happens - intolerant Christians in a small community can't stand to have a minority religious faith like Wicca operating openly near their homes, so they work to make sure that the group has to leave. If that means making threats, then so be it.

This is atrocious! Why can’t people just let everyone live their own lives! I am noticing a recurring trend in which Christians do not let anyone practice any religion but theirs! It is disgusting!
