Lesson 2 Essay: The Crone

The Crone

In modern pop-culture, the Crone is seen as both Wicked Witch and Fairy Godmother. I believe that this is a concept not very far from the truth. The Crone, as the aspect of the Goddess, is the elder wise woman with knowledge of all magic.

In First Degree Lesson 2, Reverend Don Lewis describes the Crone as “the Great Sorceress” and “the Hallowe’en Witch.” For many, the Crone is the ideal…

U.S. Court decisions:

Some court decisions which have recognized Wicca are:

An important ruling of a state Supreme Court was in Georgia: Roberts v. Ravenwood Church of Wicca, (249 Ga. 348) in 1982. It was similar to Dettmer v Landon, below.

The District Court of Virginia declared in 1985 (Dettmer v Landon, 617 F Suup 592 [E. Dst. Va.]) that Wicca is "clearly a religion for First Amendment purposes....Members of the Church sincerely adhere to a fairly complex set…

First Degree: Reading Chapter Two

First Degree: Reading the Introduction

I think the two sentences that struck me the most, in the Introductory chapter, of the First Degree Text is: "The Correllian Tradition...stresses..the synchronicity of all spiritual paths." and also, "We believe that Deity is in all things, therefore, all paths can lead to Deity."
