Australian Media on Paganism

Pagan group complains about witches attack

8th March, 2000 - ABC Website

The Australian Pagan Alliance has written to the Catholic Bishop of Wagga Wagga, Bishop William Brennan, complaining about an attack on witches.

The alliance's letter expresses concern over the tone of recent comments made by Bishop Brennan and his misconceptions about modern witchcraft.

The letter says it is highly likely there are witches in Wagga, but that modern withcraft and paganism have nothing to do with Satanism as the bishop spoke of it.

The alliance says that while Bishop Brennan has a right to disagree with witchraft, his comments are discriminatory to other religious communities who should be treated with fairness and respect.
