The part that gets my goat is when Wiccans gripe that the "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" thing was put in there to oppress Wiccans. I want to shake them and shout "Wicca didn't even eist when that was written! AAAAARGH!"
If my sources are accurate, that bit was put in by King James's translators at his request, and the intention was that it would be used to oppress witches. However
, back then, "witch" did not mean "practitioner of the religion known as Wicca;" instead, "witch" meant "harmless old lady that we want to oppress for some reason, and we need an excuse"... need I mention that another thing that bugs me about many Wiccans is their insistence that they be called "witches," and their attitude that any insulting portrayal of witches in the media is clearly a deliberate personal attack towards them
I think Odinism is currently the big thing among Scandinavian "black metal" bands. Worshipping Satan is just so passé.
I am none too fond of black metal bands or white supremacist groups to begin with, and any black metal band or white supremacist group that claims to have the Norse gods on their side has truly earned my everlasting hatred. In all my studies of Norse mythology, I've never seen anything
that even remotely
justifies either black metal or white supremacy. Bastards.
Asatru biker gangs are a different story.
