    Witches perfer to be called Wiccan (http://www.religioustolerance.org/witchcra.htm) You might as well ask "What would you do if your friend or you knew someone that was <insert Religion X> and what would you do about it or feel about it?" Does it really make that much of a difference what the religious beliefs of your friend is???

    I am Wiccan heck my entire family is wiccan but its not what some people call "Satan worship" we are kind of like the native americans we beleave in mother earth instead of a god we pray to a Goddess. Most of our beleves reside from the Christian beleafs so don't bash our religion because it dosen't co inside with yours.

    I dont see what the big deal is, I mean religion is nothing. Im a budhist and noone at my school cares, well mayby because I live in Japan......Well still it wouldnt bother if anyof my friends were some different religion. Except satanism. Thats kinda weird...

    Funny you ask, it's happened to me.

    First, are they a witch or a Wiccan? There is a difference and both exist. I've had friends who were both (not at the same time). If you're not comfortable with them having different beliefs just don't discuss them.

    If you want to know what Wiccans believe, just ask Lord Katsuhito.

    If they're witches and you want to know what they believe, don't ask me. All my friends who became involved with Covens really messed up their lives and some of them eventually did move into some "heavy shit". So I'm not unbiased on the subject. All the same there isn't much you can do except be there to listen if they need someone to talk to. *shrugs*

    There once was a point in my life when I was the only monotheist in a group of friends who were a mix of Wiccan, animist, and a mish-mash of paganisms. I didn't feel threatened by them and they didn't feel threatened by me. I was secure in my faith and so were they.

    Hell, I was the only monotheist present when two of my Wiccan friends got married. And that was a novel experience.

    As to how I felt, well it was a non-issue. The only time the differences in religion came up was when they would start teasing me that I was so poor I could only afford one god (it's Mel Brooks joke, gang).
