Ethics: The Earth Religion Anti-Abuse Resolution (1988)
We, the undersigned, as adherents of Pagan and Neo-Pagan Earth Religions, including Wicca or Neo-Pagan
Witchcraft, practice a variety of positive, life affirming faiths that are dedicated to healing, both of ourselves and
of the Earth. As such, we do not advocate or condone any acts that victimize others, including those proscribed
by law. As one of our most widely accepted precepts is the Wicca Rede's injunction to "harm none," we absolutely
condemn the practices of child abuse, sexual abuse and any other form of abuse that does harm to the bodies,
minds or spirits of the victims of such abuses. We recognize and revere the divinity of Nature in our Mother the
Earth, and we conduct our rites of worship in a manner that is ethical, compassionate and constitutionally protected.
We neither acknowledge or worship the Christian devil, "Satan," who is not in our Pagan pantheons. We will not
tolerate slander or libel against our churches, clergy or congregations and we are prepared to defend our civil rights
with such legal action as we deem necessary and appropriate.
