Nor does a Wiccan “worship a tree” (that’s actually what I hear most frequently claimed of Druids, another misconception). When you say “the tree IS GOD” you imply that the tree contains the entirety of the Deity, which it does not. Nor is it because the “wood is worthy of such attention”. It is not an unknown thing in Catholicism to beleive that Jesus or a saint may actually and truly for a time inhabit a statue or relic related to them (statues that heal, that cry, etc).
I am not sure about the fine point you are cutting with you second thought, however you have admitted that wicca is a 20th century creation so I will let that go.
If you want to be more specific about what you don’t understand I will be glad to elaborate.
It is a big deal in that I would never imagine of insulting my brother in such a way at the same time I cannot hang a pagan symbol blessed by a devil worshiper in my house.
Based on what you have posted you do not in fact know that it has been blessed by anyone, let alone a devil worshipper (which, if your brother is in fact Wiccan, is not likely to be him).
I don’t care if his pentgram has 5 10 or 1000 points. It is still a demonic symbol that everyone would recognize at first glance (or as you might say confuse) as a devil worshippers symbol.
The pentacle or pentagram has a long history of use in a variety of religions including Christianity, where it represented the five wounds of Christ. A symbol is only an image, and is only given meaning by its context not inherently good or evil in and of itself.
Nor will I tolarate the chalace and blade symbology. This is plainly abortion.
Nope, got nothing to do with abortion. It is actually a fertility symbol of the union between male and female, masculine and feminine. altreligion.about.com/library/glossary/symbols/bldefswiccasymbols.htm might be helpful.
I cannot have this symbol or something that may have been blessed by a witch in my home without making sure all of those influences are removed and all that remaines is the honest gift of one brother to another.
You do not describe the wreath as being decorated with pentagrams, heptagrams, chalices, blades or anything at all and you do not seem to know if it has indeed been blessed by anyone so I am not sure of the concern here.
I’m sorry I rambleing so lets end here.
