Grimoire Of Eclectic Magick
In 1996, “The Craft” was released in theatersand a new standard for movies aboutwitchcraft was established. This was in partdue to the technical advice of Pat Devin, anElder and the first officer of the SouthernCalifornia local council of C.O.G. (Covenantof the Goddess) established in California in1975, an incorporated, religious, non-profitorganization.
[ In 1996, there were approximately 250,000 Wiccans in the United States. ]
While much of the technically correctinformation in the movie was a fresh relief formany of us, Hollywood also had filled themovie with the normal amount of specialeffects. You know, the kind that have nothingwhatsoever to do with “real magick.” In thepast few years, large numbers of people afterseeing “The Craft” turned towards Wiccawith the impression that the movie was a realreflection of what they could learn. Thismisconception was further in-forced by anumber of new Televison shows and moreHollywood movies. Never had a little bit oftruth created so much confusion.~ Parker Torrence What is Wicca?"Basically, Wicca is an evolving religion whichoriginated from paganism, the oldest religion inthe world. … It's an earth-oriented religionwhich has a consciousness towards ecology, notdomination of the earth. We are part ofeverything that is going on around us. Humanshave a responsibility for their actions and howthey treat the earth, plants, animals, birds, fishand even rocks.”~Pat Devin
