What is the difference between wicca and pagan?
TripleGoddess gave this response on 3/20/2000:
Pagan is a term that used to mean "country dweller". There is a school of thought that also terms Pagan as anyone that does not believe in God (in this sense I mean Jesus). But in our times and minds, Pagan is a general term used for those who follow the traditions of Wicca, Shamanism, and other polytheistic, majickal religions. Wicca is a comtemporary Pagan religion with it's spiritual roots in nature. We have Deities (hence the polytheistic nature of Wicca) that represent both the Goddess and the God. You will find that most Wiccans will call themselves Pagan and visa versa, but you will also find that alot of Wiccans will simply refer to themselves as simply a Witch.
