TSA Wiccan Fired

Things that make you go hmmm. Whistle-blowing witch grounded by TSA This whole story seems a little muddled.  The only clear message I got from this story is that working at TSA is stressful.

I think the most interesting thing about this article is Selena Fox's comment that as Wicca becomes more visible, the general populous is both more tolerant and more hateful.   Not to blame the victim or anything, but the flip side of her comment is that as Wicca becomes more visible, the Wiccan community becomes both more mainstream and more obnoxious (in a let's "freak the mundanes" kind of way).

The other aspect that strikes me is how readily the non-Wiccans in this story believed that their car heaters had been hexed by magic.  Like the TSA Wiccan said in response, "If spells were that easy, I'd have won the lottery by now."
