Inter-religious conflict in families:

We occasionally receive Emails from people experiencing inter-religious conflict within their family. Most often this is a youth or young adult who feels drawn to Wicca and is perhaps practicing rituals as a solitary practitioner or with others in a coven. Sometimes the situation involves a youth or young adult raised in the Christian faith who has started tp date a Wiccan. The conflict most frequently arises between the young person and her/his devout Christian parent(s).

Although this section deals with conflicts in which Christians reject Wiccans, most of it is applicable to any inter-religious clash, or to intra-religious disputes between different denominations or traditions within a single religion.
