I'll look at the Cone of Power thing again, see if I can re-phrase it better. I got my limited understanding of it from Starhawk, if that tells you anything :)

As far as the polytheistic groups, I think they might be very, very rare. I've met occasionally really polytheistic individuals, but *lots* of people who state polytheism are actually henotheistic. There isn't much of a difference, really.

Now, if I use Cunningham's definition (a bit altered, of course), then we'd have to say that if a person were polytheistic, they couldn't be Wiccan. I don't know if I can make *that* call. I'd feel really weird about it. But that's what new age movements are all about: any definition or criteria is going to necessarily lack the ability to encompas everything.

*grins* I don't "get" Wicca, either, but I do my best to learn about something before I make a statement (or if I make a statement, test it out on as broad a spectrum as possible).

I hate to see Wiccan bashing on the lists (fortunately, it's rare, and I'm pretty sure that everyone who does it only does it *once*).

Someone asked, "If we have so many Wiccans and ex-Wiccans in ADF, why the hell aren't they writing this article?" I certainly don't think I'm best qualified to do this, but so far as I know, I'm the only one willing.
