BISAC Says Wicca is a Religion

pentagram or pentacle

The Book Industry Study Group has finally moved Wicca into the Religion category! Before it was in the category Body, Mind & Spirituality/Witchcraft.

So what’s the big deal? It’s a major step in recognizing Wicca as a genuine religion! The BISC makes the BISAC listing which is the standard for book publishers. It’s like the Library of Congress or Dewey Decimal Systems except it only identifies categories instead of individual books.

This is another big step for Freedom of Religion in America. After Wiccan Patrick Stewart was killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2005, the Veteran’s Administration refused to let a pentagram put on his gravesite. Legal action was filed. Finally on April 23, 2007 the VA allowed pentacles.

Why should you care if you aren’t Wiccan or Pagan? Freedom of Religion doesn’t work if it’s only for a few people. Even if the government was Christian, would it be Roman Catholic or Protestant or Greek Orthodox? And if it was Protestant, would it be Baptist or Assembly of God or Seventh Day Adventist?

This is a big step forward for America and the First Amendent!

    This is wonderful news! It is so hard for some people to see there is more than one path to the top of the mountain. I will certainly share this with the members of my coven. Blessed Be!

  2. Pet Girl says:

    That is so cool! A religion’s a religion the government shouldn’t discriminate.

  3. Christian Andy says:

    Saying Wicca is a religion is completely different from saying it’s the true religion. It isn’t. There’s only one true religion, and that’s Christianity. All others are deceptions of Satan.

    “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should have everlasting life.”

    John 3:16

  4. MJLover says:

    Is this religion real?
    Now don’t you bicker,
    For your library now
    lists religion as Wicca!

  5. Pet Girl says:

    @Christian Andy,

    Wicca is as true a religion as any other. Except Discordianism.

  6. Chaos is Not Just for Breakfast Anymore says:

    Rules are for tools and fools. The government should stay out of religion. Give it back to the people.

  7. Vernon Avaritt says:

    I’m glad that this happened. It is time for America to come out of the Middle Ages.
