Do you think there really is such a thing as good witches? I watch "Charmed" and "Harry Potter" movies,as well as read the books.It appears that they are all fictional witches fighting evil.I am christian but I think this is kinda' fun pretend.And I feel that it is no harm to the kids as long as they understand that it is pretend. What do you think? Are they not harmful stories as long as they are understood as fictional?

Wicca is a modern religion of "witches". Some Pagans also practice witchcraft and/or magic. Wiccans believe in the rule of three, that what you put out comes back to you threefold, so a Wiccan would not use magic to bring harm knowing that it would come back on them. Back to your question, yes there are good witches.

I am a christian and believe that Jesus Christ is our savior.I do not believe that wiccans ans pagans don't. I believe that no humans really have powers.It is in the stories,like"Charmed" and "Harry Potter".

Hmmmm,so many that buy into the stereotypical hollywood type,Charmed and harry potter is all hollywood hype for money making purpses,they wouldnt know real if it bit them.there is more that goes on in this world than you know and witches are very real.both good and bad.And please don't waste time posting bible scriptures at people,Christianity has PROVEN pagan roots.Anyways witchcraft as its so crudly put is very real and does exist.just because someone does not belive it does not mean its not there.Remember, not all that is real is seen by the human eye.for example animals often know when a disaster like an earthquake is going to happen, yet it can't be proven how.does that KNOWN fact not exist?

I think they're ok for kids as long as they know it's not real. I love these types of shows. I wish they were real.

i don't believe in witches, good or bad, i don't think some children are old enough to comprehend the diffrerence in fiction when they go see things like this,

Hello dfolliin! The kids who are watching those movies or shows must be guided. Although I don't think it's actually bad, it still needs parental guidance because not all the episode of the shows are good. I mean, good witches or wizards are fictional, I don't think they exists. So they must know the real meaning of life and they must know that it's not true.

I am a Christian too and I love make believe witches. My website has an old lady gramma witch as a logo. i love Halloween witches, they are so much fun. I will not have anything to do with witchcraft, I do believe there is some truth to that, and I don't want any part in it.

hello dfollin of course there are good witches. Samantha on the television show Bewitched, is one good example of a friendly witch. also the movie hocus pocus with Bette Midler in it is another good example of good witches. lol but as far as believing in a real life witch or anything like that, no i do not. and also the television show Sabrina, she was a good witch. lol take care and have a beautiful afternoon.

Wow! "Hocus Pocus" we have that VHS tape and my husband used to watch it all the time with our daughter. They were not really good witches.I am talking about on tv,in movies and books.I know there are no real good witches. My point is that I know people that will not let their children,even thou they are older watch,watch any of those show's,movies or read those books.They say that the characters are bad because they are witches.They don't like the author's or screenwriters and the actors/actresses.Even thou they have liked them in other tv shows or films.Now all of the sudden they are awful.

I am a pagan dfollin. Which means I am a good witch. Being a which is not to curse against anyone or make magic, it´s all about respect nature and try to be part of it like we naturaly are and forget that most of the time because of our daily stressfull lives. Remember that! Harry Porter and so on are really fictional. Nothing to do with paganism and witches.

Greetings. First of all witches are as real as trees are. Ever heard of Wicca? it is actually a religion. a pagan religion. I am pagan. Being a witch is not something to "pretend" to be. either your one or your not. thats it thats all its no GAME. You do not pretend to be one. I am not wiccan but Im a natural witch. A natural witch is one born with gifts inherited by family members. Movies such as harry potter ect and such are just that.. MOVIES... real witches DO NOT fly... Most have a code of ethic such as harm no one. and also things like love spells are usualy against a witches creed because it messes with someones free will which is not right to do. One should never mess with a persons free will.

white magic is suppose to be good witches, black magic are suppose to be from bad witches. the black magic is suppose to be more evil and use to do bad things to people. where white magic i have no idea, i guess to do good things for people. but like the pitbull is all about the owner of th dog. and how it was train. but i guess it someone who's in witch craft it depends who it is.

well from what i've been told there is black and white magic. there is different between witches. the bad witches mess with black magic, and good witches mess with white magic. but it all what you want to belive or not. it's like saying all gang member kills and steal. or all teenagers are a pain.

To put it bluntly magic itself is just that, magic,its what its used for is what makes it black or white.it is the intent and the heart behind how it is used is what determines good or evil.

Well being a christian you should know it clearly that anyone who uses magic in this world are no good. So, we can be sure that there aren't such thing as good witches. There are many witches in the place where I live and they hit you with their broom to cure your disease. I cried a lot which they did that to me while I was a child. But I recently am learning Christianity and o I know that there things are never good. Its better to let the children watch these type of programs after they are 12 means when they are able to understand that these things are fake otherwise they might imitate these things so be careful.

There are good witches out there. Whether they have magic powers or not, I'm not sure but they are good people.

Yeah. I think that witches in stories are meant to teach the difference between good and evil. they are good and bad witches.
