Wiccans, RFID, Wal-Mart
Wal-Mart goes Wicca
By Judi McLeod
Tuesday, October 18, 2005

The five and dime department store of the past is where your mother treated you to balloons and lollipops. Now you can buy books at the five and dime that teach you how to cast a spell on mother.

Wal-Mart, the company that put Dead Peasant Life Insurance on the map, is going Wicca.

Dead Peasant Life Insurance is the loathsome practice of taking life insurance on people without their knowledge and callously cashing in on the policy at the time of their death. Wal-Mart was defendant in five putative class-action lawsuits because of its Dead Peasant Life Insurance policies on unwitting employees. Three of the lawsuits were pending in Texas as recently as last April.

It's not as much fun for Mom to take her brood to the department store anymore. Along with the Barbie dolls and Tonka Toys, 100 items for Wicca can be found at Wal-Mart.

The Everything Wicca and Witchcraft Book: Unlock the Secrets of Ancient Rituals, Spells, Blessings and Sacred Objects has been slashed from $14.95 to $9.84.

"Always low prices Always is the Wal-Mart mantra.

The Witch Book: The Encyclopedia of Witchcraft, Wicca and Neo-Paganism can be had for $49.50.

There's Wicca for Beginners and The Witch Next Door: Separating Fact from Fiction about Witchcraft, Wicca, Goddess Worship and Neo-Paganism.

(And you thought your next-door neighbour was only a tad eccentric.)

There are people who have had encounters with wiccans, wizards, covens, cults and the magic, and their experiences are captured in a book of the same title.

If you're not getting what you're looking for out of Bible classes at the church you attend, there's The Wicca Bible: The Definitive Guide to Magic and the Craft.

The Wal-Mart of all things Wicca only includes one anti-Wicca book, Protecting Your Teen from Today's Witchcraft: A Parent's Guide to Confronting Wicca and the Occult.

If you're a newcomer to the world of Wicca, there's the inevitable Wicca & Witchcraft for Dummies.

Wal-Mart's competitor in the United States, Target, is starting its own RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) testing in Texas and has barred Salvation Army bell ringers at Christmas time.

Oh, for the days when the closest thing to witches that could be found down at the local department store was the witch's costume you bought for Halloween.
