The other day an individual, I don’t remember their user name and even if I did I don't think I would post it here, left two comments on two separate YouTube videos on my channel. At first I considered deleting them and blocking them from my channel, but after reading them and contemplating what they actually meant I decided that I wanted to share the comments and my thoughts about them with you, but before I share the comments and my thoughts, I want to present some definitions for some of the words that were used within the comments; definitions that I gleamed from the comments themselves and from my own thoughts about the comments were suggesting with these particular word choices.
There are many individuals that are skeptical of Wicca and feel that there is something sinister behind it. They imagine that Wicca is just a façade for something else, something to be afraid of.

During all the studying I continuously was reminded that Satan was 'the great tempter' and Hell was where I was bound to go if I committed mortal sins.
