NEW YORK, NEW YORK, January 2001: Wicca, also known as the Goddess movement, Goddess spirituality, or the Craft, appears to be the fastest-growing religion in America, according to this article in The Atlantic. It is estimated that there are now more than 200,000 adherents of Wicca and related "neopagan" faiths in the United States. Wiccans often call themselves Witches, using a capital W to distinguish themselves from the word's negative associations of Satan worship and malicious magic, or just plain pagans. They tend to be white, middle-class, and highly educated. About a third of them are men. Wiccan services have been held on at least fifteen U.S. military bases and ships.
