I don't get people telling me it's the sign of the devil. But when people do say some thing about my wearing a pentagram amulet they tend to ask me, "What does that mean?" To which I give them the rundown on the implications of a pentagram through multiple aspects such as different religious perspectives, scientific implications, and the building structures. From there it goes to "What does it mean to you." To which I reply that it means whatever I feel it means. Which I don't have any specific set meaning to it it means whatever I feel it means at any given time.

Very few actually say that to me. Most I just catch staring at my pentacle and they either continue speaking to me or begin avoiding me! I've been asked if I worship the devil when I tell them I'm pagan, and I just correct them and say, "No, I honor Nature, I don't believe in 'the Devil' at all." If they persist, I explain that my beliefs are primarily of the old Cherokee faith, and then they usually back off after that. Although no one has ever asked why I wear a pentacle since it is not apart of Cherokee belief. Haha! Well I did say "primarily" not "entirely". =P
