DU Pagans/Wiccans/witches, can I have a word? Updated at 12:22 AM
I've noticed several threads here rebutting Christine O'Donnell's latest lunacy. Reading through them, I notice that several of you go out of your way to explain that you aren't Satanists. Fair enough, you're not. I am though and I know there's a couple of others here as well.
Now, I'm sure it was unintentional but in your understandable urge to both explain that you aren't Satanists and explain that you don't eat babies, sacrifice animal, etc, you seem to be implying (again, accidently, I'm sure) that Satanists do do this stuff and/or that being a Satanist is something terrible. Needless to say, apart from a few teenaged posers, we don't do any of this shit either and being a Satanist isn't something to be ashamed of.
Again, I'm sure you didn't mean to give that impression but please, for those of us who actually are Satanists, could you be a little more careful with your phrasing or at least include something like "Satanists don't do this stuff either"? It would be appreciated.
