they're usually 14 year old girls with powerfully bad eyeshadow and clothes from hot topic

but you're they're harmless

more on point would be pagans in jail that want special crap so they can do their pretend ceremonys for their pretend religion

i'd be like "no get a real religion" and end the matter

but the cry baby ACLU would probably get involved

A real religion? There's an oxymoron.

Christianity was a "stupid fringe cult" at one time or another.

So you want religious freedom only for some religions? Who will decide which ones?

Either have freedom for all religions or (more to my liking) no freedom for any religion.

i'll decide

seriously though there actually is leeway for persecution of minor cults within an otherwise "free" or democratic society. it's all about the social opinion of the cult in question. the police can and do alot that they aren't actually allowed to do but have been given a "silent mandate" from an acepting majority.

the Waco cult, the MOVE crisis closer to me at home, etc.

if no one cares you can do whatever you want.

you do REALISE the extent to what you are saying... all religions (as it was pointed out) were "stupid fringe cuts" at one time or another. As Pope Benedict implied that he renounces Christians who take some parts of the Bible literally and others not, so therefore, in theory, they are new "fringe cut" religioins. So you would persecute non-extremist Muslims because they do not take their "new versions" of the Qu'uran (forgive my bad spelling) for every word?

No one cares what you do so long as it's legal. That's the difference between the Waco cult and other religions.

They should bloody put you in a camp.

Since this thread isn't spurring anything close to intellectual, I've put it down in the basement.

And i totally support locking people like you in a padded room. Why dont you do some research before you post just some stereotypical view of an religion?

most practicioners of the Wiccan religion are over the age of 18. As most groups require that or parental consent. So as to the fact of it only being 14 year old girls, your wrong. Not to mention the fact that most practitioners of the Wiccan religion do not shop at hot topic. i don't know that many older adults who do...

And what actual number of prison inmates are Wiccan or other fringe religions? and if they do want a candle or other religious artifact, what is the actual cost to the American people? Should we just force your religion down their throat? Maybe your religion is the problem since so many non-fringe religious people are the ones in prison.
