Skeptic Tank!

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 you can read them if you wish. 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 people 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 to us and others like us, and to some they may THINK are like us. Write to some of these folks and request their literature. Don't be paranoid, be informed! Blessed Be. Rowan Moonstone, P.O. Box 21058 OKC, OK 73120. 1.
