Wicca is a newer religion based on a mix of Saxon/Celtic folk traditions and Ceremonial magic. It was officially called Wicca by Gerald Gardener in the 50's. In the United States, Wicca was finally recognized as a religion in various states and by the Army in response to it's soldiers wanting to practice their faith without persecution.

Wicca was never recognized as an official religion in the U.S.A. The government is prohibited from recognizing any religion by the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.
