Listed below are the names of some of the people whom I have come in
contact with during my research who are the most outspoken on the subject
of Witchcraft, the occult, and the New Age Movement.
In the case of authors, I have listed the names of some of their best
known books, so that,if you wish, you can read them. You should. They range
from folks who think we're outright demon worshipers to those who know full
well the difference between Wicca and neo-Paganism and Satanism.
This list is by NO means complete. If you know of others that should
be added to this list, please send me their names. If ANY of the names on
this list are appearing in your town, it would probably be in your best
interest to go and hear what they have to say. Likewise, if they are
appearing on a T.V., or radio show in your area, watch and listen. Tape the
show if possible. I would be interested in tapes, or transcripts of
anything these people have to say.
Not all of these people are "enemies". Many of them are simply
concerned with the problems that teens and others are having in the world
these days. All of them can give us invaluable information and insights
into how a substantial segment of the population is thinking and reacting
these days to us and others like us, and some who they may THINK are like
us. Write to some of these folks and request their literature. Don't be
paranoid, just be informed!
