If Dennis Wheatley is anything to go by, in Wicca you get the nubile young women before you die!

Ummmm... Wicca is rather feminist, Islam is decidedly not?
Islam mandates belief in Allah, while Wicca is mostly polytheistic but is somewhat vague about the whole God question overall?
Islam was created in the Middle East in the 7th Century based loosely on Christianity and ancient Arab mythology, while Wicca was created in the UK in the mid-20th based on ancient pagan practices?
Just a few thoughts. Not that they're significant or anything.

A little less vagueness on my part would have been nice, no?

um... Wiccans don't kill people for disagreeing with Wicca? Islam is anti-feminist and Wicca is generally pro-feminist. Yeah, very similar.

Wow! I did not see that one coming.

I know nothing about wiccans, but what I know is that the practice of 4 wives came out because back in the 7th century, it was the only concievable way to support the widows of fallen soldiers (even then, the Middle East was a violent place). Today, only decidedly hardline Muslims still marry more than one; I guess they found monogamy is easier to live with. :)

He continues with this bit:
Christianity + Paganism = Roman Catholicism
Christianity + Democracy = Gnosticism
Christianity + Judaism = Phariseeism

Wicca is Druidism + New Age and has zero to do with Islam. You might as well say that Shinto = Scientology or Asatru = Rastafarianism.
Islamic heaven is full of sixty cubit tall women. I'm not positive if giantesses in heaven are mentioned by any Wiccan writer.

"Judging by the fact that Islam allows unlimited divorce, 4 wives + unlimited maidservants, and the putting to death of anyone who offends Islam, and that the Islamic heaven is full of nubile young women, I can't see there is much difference between wicca and Islam."
Newt Gingrich. Multiple divorcee.
You fail, Old Man.

Where the bloody fuck are you getting your information from? Wiccans have never flown planes into buildings, they've never put to death anyone who offends them or decides Wicca is not for them, and I don't see how you can even connect that "72 virgins" thing with it. The only parts you got right are that practitioners don't have a problem with divorce, and some support polyamory.

Then you know absolutely nothing about Wicca.
