Recently Mike Nichols and I wrote articles taking opposite sides of the same argument, the semantics of Witchcraft and Wicca.
So far, I’ve seen this debated on Jason’s blog, but that’s it.
I just wanted to state for the record, Mike’s article came first, I read it before it was published so he could get my reactions (since I’m very vocal on the “Wicca and Witchcraft are not the same” argument) and I wrote my article in response.
At no time did he and I get into any kind of debate or argument. He and I are friends (at least on my side) and if there was any competition, it was friendly. I’m happy his article is getting the response it is, and I’m gratified to see that others are understanding where I am coming from as well.
I never meant this to be divisive in the Communities, it was simply meant as a rebuttal.
Interestingly enough, he and I have talked several times about this set of articles. Gotta work on getting more famous since no one knows I wrote the article I did.
Anyhow, just for your information.
