I am a witch.
I don't believe in the "threefold law".
(I think it's a ritual contrivance of Gardner's and meaningless out of context.)
I don't follow the "rede".
I don't use magic circles. Or "compasses".
I don't call upon gods to help me in my spells.
(Unless I consider it directly related to a deity. It's happened once.)
I don't spell "magic" with a "k".
(Unless I'm discussing Thelema.)
I don't believe in Karma.
(Not even the actual Dharmic sort.)
I do use blood in my spells, if I think the spell calls for it.
If a spell or magical act calls for blood, I bleed; I don't use menstrual blood.
(Unless menstrual blood would be the most appropriate kind.)
I think curses are more ethical than binding spells.
And I'll curse if I need to.
I don't do spells much.
(There's usually an easier way to get what you want.)
I'd rather take herbs in pill form than tea form.
(Easier that way.)
I don't go running naked in the woods.
(Sounds nice, but there are thorns and spiders and so on.)
I am not a vegetarian; I enjoy eating meat.
I don't want children.
I think it's fine to use drugs in your witchcraft. That's your business.
(The most I use is alcohol, but I'd be open to flying ointment.)
I don't think witchcraft is inherently theistic, or religious.
I don't use an athame, a wand, a pentacle or any tools of that nature.
I am a religious witch, but the gods I worship may not be the same as those you worship.
I don't worship a Triple Goddess.
And I do not think all gods are the same.
I don't respect and love all creatures of the earth.
(I hate cockroaches. Don't try to pretend you like them.)
I don't assume your witchcraft is anything like mine.
Kindly extend me the same courtesy.
