One of the major precepts of the Craft is that all entities deserve to operate as they please and indulge in what makes them happy and comfortable, as long as it doesn't harm anyone else. Therefore, it is not necessary that your " truth " conform to anyone else's. Conversely, you cannot expect the world to conform to your truths either. A person is made up of what he or she believes in.
We think that what those beliefs entail was summed up perfectly by the Council of American Witches in their Spring Witchmeet of 1974, held in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their statement entitled " Principles of Wiccan Belief, " was adopted in an effort to inform and educate both the general public and fledgling Witches like us. Unfortunately the Council of American Witches disbanded in that same year, but this does not mean the efforts they made are inconsequential, quite the contrary!
Other groups and organizations continue to function or have formed since then and carry on the ideas they put forth. The Council of American Witches finds it necessary to define modern Witchcraft in terms of the American experience and needs.
We are not bound by traditions from other times and other cultures and owe no allegiance to any person or power greater than the Divinity manifest through our own being.
