people keep calling me a satanist because I'm Wiccan. We Wiccans don't worship the devil. We don't even bleave in the devil, so if we Wiccan don't bleave in the devil how are we satanist, and many people ask me why am I wearing the pentagram on my neck and told me it's the devils sign. That's not true the pintagram has been in many religion and many arts for ages and even all be for satanist came along. we Wiccan worship other god's and goddesses. we bleave that the pentagram will protect us. Just like the christian's think the cross will protect you.

I think everyone on this site is aware that wiccans aren't satanists. Christians believe that all who practice magic are devil worshipers and to this day a lot of them will believe that without even bothering to learn more about different beliefs such as Wicca. You shouldn't pay attention to those things. Also - people fear what they do not understand. I've been stopped on the street by random strangers telling me how wrong it is to wear an upside down cross, because it is a sign of the devil but it's actually The Cross of St. Peter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_of_St._Peter The idea that it's a devil sign is relatively new. Believe what you will and don't let narrow minded people bring you down. :)

lol i know what you mean. i have two friends who have matching pentacle tattoos on their shoulder [one with a sun the other with a moon] i was at a party a few years ago in the summer with the girl who has the moon pentacle. she was wearing a top that showed the tattoo, a drunk guy saw it and yelled 'yea, hail satan' to which we both turned to him and called him an idiot. [my friend did a far better job telling him off though] when he heard we were Wiccan he said there wasn't a difference. my friend pointed out we don't believe in satan, and he replied with 'well satan doesn't believe in you'. [still love that line]
you need to be calm and explain the difference. [though sometimes it's fun to snap at idiots] hopefully one day people will know the difference, we're making progress, slow as it may seem.
Honestly, not all people, and definitely not all Christians, are as small minded as you believe. I have only had one person at my work ever actually worry over my immortal soul, and his solution was to give me a bible I keep and use to this day. I have even had the pleasure of talking with my boss about the energy in crystals and how they can effect you.
My grandfather, a very Christian man, doesn't care what I believe in, as long as I believe in something. He respects that I do not believe as he does, and would rather see religions all as extensions for each other.
Just remember that not everyone is over the top foolish, and not everyone is out to get you. Worrying about what other people think of you isn't helpful to you at all. Worry about what you think of you. Are you a devil worshipper? No? Good for you. Don't even bother to react to things that are said in real ignorance.

The pentagram upside down or with a goats head is the saintanist sign and i have known a few saintanists and they are really nice people. I dabble from more than one religion wicca and christianity being just 2 of them. People do not want to know something that scares them and this is unfortunatly a fact but stay strong and trust yourself.
