Wiccans run around fires naked - Although some Wiccans do perform rituals in the nude (which is called "skyclad") the majority of Wiccans do not. There is nothing sexual about this type of worship. Some people feel that clothing dampens their power.

Wicca is lawless - Although there are no specific commandments to restrict behavior, most Wiccans do follow the Wiccan Rede from which all ethical behavior evolves: "And that you harm none, do as you will." Any studied witch knows that any deed, good or bad, will come back you you. Karma!

Wiccans are Satanists - Wiccans do not have any all evil being in their reglious structure, never mind the CHRISTIAN Devil! There is no all evil deiety in any of our regigious structure. We have no "Hell" to speak of, so why would we need a devil?

Wiccans use spells to harm or control others - Wiccans believe in the threefold law, any deed comes back to you x3. Good or bad...Plus the whole "harm none" thing.

Wicca is Goddess Worship. It's just for women - Quite the contrary. Men and Women hold equal power in Wicca, none is of more importance than the other. Wiccan's also have no qualms with Homosexuals, transexuals, race, colour or background.

Wicca is a cult - It is a nationally recognized religion and you can be prosecuted for discriminating against someone for being Wiccan or a Witch

Wiccans sacrifice animals - As said in the "Charge of the Goddess", "I do not demand sacrifice, for behold, i am the mother of all creatures."

Witches fly on Broomsticks - As much as how cool that would be, i would prefer a more modern method of transportaion and leave my "broom flying" with my flying pigs.

Witches and Wiccans are the same thing - The easiest way to explain it is this: All Catholics are Christians right, but not all Christians are Catholics (eg, protestant). In the same regard, all Wiccans are Witches, but not all Witches are Wiccan

Witches and Pagans are the same thing - Its the same idea as Witches and Wiccans, there are a lot of different types of people,  but mostly, pagans are not directly involved in Witchcraft as a whole, but may use parts of it.....ask a pagan.

Witches have group sex - Again, mostly not true. The "Great Rite" is usualy in the form of putting your atheme (ritual knife) within the chalise (ritucal cup) ie the penis in the vagina. Some covens do perform this rite psyically ie have sex. This is usualy between the High Priestess and Priest, is fully consentual and is done in private.
