And now, for a more serious question.

I've been reading What Witches Do, and it seems that Alexandrian Wicca has a very definite view on the Divine; most notably in the Charge of the Goddess and Charge of the God, they go with soft polytheism.

I have read elsewhere (on the PW forum, heh) that Wiccans are Wiccans because they experience the same things (there's a word for it and I just cannot find it via Google, forums, ect), not necessarily because they believe the same things. It seems that Alexandrian Wicca does have a few basic beliefs they all share.

This question is somewhat "who is right?" but also "what about those people who want to worship other/more gods/goddesses within Wicca?"

I am not wiccan but this reminded me of religious debate in general. How many times have we known of one religion to say it's the right religion versus some other religion? Or strip religion down to it's roots and say the beliefs that compose it. People seem to have a tendency to want to say one religion, or someone's beliefs, are better than another's. However, what if it isn't so much "who is right" rather realizing they all lead, in essence, to the same place, the same experience, however you wish to look at it. Perhaps which god(s)/goddess(es) a Wiccan choses to include in their faith is just a reflection of that. If that makes any sense? lol than again maybe I misinterpreted a bit. Either way
