When Mayor Jim Schmitt of Green Bay, Wisconsin, decided to display a traditional Nativity for the December 25th federal holiday, Christmas, which recognizes the birth of Jesus, he knew the atheists and agnostics would opposed the display. And they did, even after Schmitt allowed other religious displays to be erected along side the Nativity, including a Witch/Wicca Pentacle. Christmas has passed and the Nativity has been taken down, but the attacks continue. Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of Freedom From Religion Foundation will continue with a lawsuit against the city to stop it from ever acknowledging that December 25th recognized the birth of Jesus.
Green Bay Removes Nativity Scene, But Not Lawsuit
According to Richard G. Howe in his article published in the Christian Research Journal
MODERN WITCHCRAFT: IT MAY NOT BE WHAT YOU THINK,
The term witchcraft is certainly the most familiar within and without the practice, but it is also the term that carries with it the most unwanted baggage. It often has sinister or evil connotations, and for those reasons many within the craft prefer the term Wicca (for the practice) and Wiccan (for the practitioner).
