Apologies to the Witchdoctor

Sadly the twins are acting up and I cant spend as much time on this as it deserves but I owe Witchdoctor Joe an apology. His post to Witchvox on Kangaroo magic was focused on Wicca alone and not magic as a whole. As such, my response in my Laws of magick post of last week was not really a proper reaction. I stand by the things I said in the post, they just dont have much relevence to Joe's article.

I fuck up occasionally, and when I do, its proper to apologize publicaly.

Now, all that said, I think that a little BS is OK and has done Wicca well to get it started off. After all, would it have really taken off if Gardner did not embelish some of its origins? That aside though, that was then and this is now, and Joe is quite right to warn against false mystique and guide people towards personalization of their relationship to the gods.

Well done.

Thanks Jason, your a gentlemen and a scholar. I enjoyed your post and your points outside the relm of Wicca.

Dude, don't get me started on Gardner! Or his personality cult.
