Christian Newspaper Comments on Wicca Case

It’s not often that this newspaper becomes part of a story.

As should typically be the case, we report the news, rather than make it ourselves.

Recently, however, Florida Baptist Witness became part of a developing story before the Florida Supreme Court in a case that, if wrongly decided, could have far-reaching consequences for this newspaper and our readers, and possibly for all churches in the Sunshine State.

On March 17, the Florida Supreme Court granted a motion from the Witness and The Florida Catholic to file an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief in the case Wiccan Religious Cooperative of Florida, Inc. v. Jim Zingale, et. al. The brief was officially filed March 1.

In a case that has only recently received attention, the Wiccans brought a lawsuit against the state after one of its representatives was erroneously charged sales tax for the purchase of the Satanic Bible and the Witch’s Bible Compleat, religious publications that are not subject to sales tax under Florida Statute 212.06(9). Rather than seeking a refund, the Wiccans filed suit, claiming the statute is unconstitutional because it violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Full Story
