Wiccans protest beer label

Wait a minute. From what I know Wicca, by that name, isn't associated with the history of religious persecution of so called witches. Wicca is fairly new on the scene and witches never existed. It's true there have been a number of "pagan" practices found in recorded history but no evidence that the extraordinary powers or demonic associations that resulted in people being burned, drowned or crushed to death ever really happened. I don't see where members of Wicca have any right to become upset over the bottle's image anymore than anyone else. Heck, didn't they just get recognition as a legitimate religion in the UK? They should enjoy the beer and keep the bottles as candle holders maybe.
