In a previous article, (Mark Terka) says:

	We have debated it on Magicknet, and later PODSnet Wicca echo on
and off for about 6 years now...and it seems to me the consesus is: Does
it matter? She has said that the best way to understand her is the listen
to her music...which is definitly Pagan/Wiccan Friendly. She creates
wonderful music, and that is all we should really expect of her.

	Ms. McKennitt is a wonderful musician, and the stuff that she has
written on her various albums, as well as the music for the films from the
Canadian National Film Board's GODDESS TRILOGY are definitely Wiccan
related. I remember attending one of here concerts here in Ottawa, and
dropping into trance during the! 

Blessed Be,
