I am new to the D.C. area and found your June 23 issue in the lobby of my building while on my way to lunch.

We can't make City Paper without you


Your contribution is appreciated.

I enjoyed many of your approaches to issues affecting D.C. but was disappointed in the illustration accompanying the article “Satan’s School for Kids.” The picture has a Satanlike figure pointing to a chalk drawing of a pentagram. This is not a symbol of Satanism but a symbol of the pagan religion Wicca. Wiccans do not believe in the existence of Satan, and the encircled five-pointed star represents our belief in the five natural elements.

Those Satanists who believe and advertise the pentagram as a symbol of their religion do not truly believe in their religion but are only “followers” for commercial reasons. I would appreciate it if you corrected this mistake, because Wiccans are misunderstood as it is.
