Von Mudra;4894365Depends on the faith. Wicca often uses the word witch, and I do to an extent, for instance, my girlfriend is actually ordained as the family witch, replacing her grandmother on her dad's side, however she is not wiccan, instead being a more collective form of pagan as I am, though she is still tied in some ways to tribal beliefs (she's 1/2 native south american)
I was actually thinking of a much less literal and much more jovial use of the word, but you have reminded me that many of these new age religions have started bringing it back into popular use too, so good point regardless.

Wicca isn't really new age per say...It was popularised in 1954 by Gerald Gardner. So to me it must have be unpopular till Mr. Gardner make it popular, So Gods know how old "wicca" tis
like a good example of new age is Jewitch yeah you heard me... Jewitchery http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judeo-Paganism

Uwsar-Hat-Anupuw;4895158Wicca isn't really new age per say...more like form 60's or below not sure...
New Age religions more-or-less kick-started in the 60s, so I'd classify it under that. They can argue if they like, but it just makes my life easier to pigeonhole stuff, damn it. And no, that's not a euphemism for anything.
How about scientology! Hows THAT for a "religion"?
I didn't make it!
Serio;4893286Is Year 2009 AD/CE is similiar to Year 1009 AD/CE, now? We're reverting back to the archaic fears of witches, demons, and mad gods seeking to eradicate all living? Just because four of my teeths are slightly sharper than the others doesn't mean I'm a bloodsucking vampire!
I blame twilight
