A Wiccan for President?

Wiccan politics by Puck Goodfellow

Great post at DailyKos about being born Wiccan:

...Even though Wiccans are usually WASPs (White Anglo Saxon Pagans) we are a small enough minority to face Religious Discrimination. For the most part it's little things like the constant question of ",So you cast spells?"

That's just kid stuff. I usually get "So, you worship Satan!, but I'm hard-core.

...My Religious Beliefs are actually what made me heavily anti-George W. Bush during the 2000 election...

Heh, welcome to the club.

...What would happen if I, a Wiccan, ran for office? This latest kerfuffle definitely has reinforced my feeling of being shut out of the political process.

I have a feeling my religion would be at the bottom of the list of factors precluding my run for high office. Well, probably even low office. :)

Check out the excellent comments following the post. Nice to know there are so many supportive Kossaks.

I can only imagine a Wiccan in the presidential office. It's amazing to think what they could accomplish but also the openmindedness that would lead to their election. Thanks for adding me to your blogroll!
