Since the introduction of the internet for public use, the Wiccan population has skyrocketed due to websites such as spellsofmagic.com, Witchvox.com and Wiccantogether.com. This is especially shown in the comparison of the 2001 US ARIS Study and the 2008 US ARIS Study. In 2001, the number of Wiccan individuals In the united states totaled to estimate 134,000 and by 2008 it nearly doubled to 342,000. The same went for Neo-Pagan individuals who doubled from 140,000 in 2001 to 340,000 in 2008. This trend could continue to increase at an exponential rate and in 2015 the US is expected to have over 500,000 wiccan/pagan individuals.
With numbers like this, maybe someday we could all accept pagans for peaceful, loving, down to earth individuals instead of demonic, spiteful, satanic, devil worshiping people who need to be executed like the infamous Salem witch trials. We pagans don’t deserve to be discriminated against due to our religion so please don’t discriminate against us just as we never have discriminated against Christians. Thank you and blessed be.
