Why I hate Neopaganism:
#1 I hate magic. Most Neopagans seem to believe in some form of instrumental or practical magic (i.e., spells). I have complained extensively about this elsewhere. Not only do I not believe in the mechanics of "raising energy" or the premise that intention is power, but I find the notion of controlling nature as a religious practice to be discordant with what I understand as the Neopagan ideal of atunement with nature.
