Contrary to the popular belief that is said about Wiccans they do not worship Satan on any form because Satan is has historical beginnings with early Christianity. Early Christians viewed the Horned God as evil due to the horns upon it. The Horned God in Wiccan culture is benevolent being that is responsible for bringing life to the forest and the animals that live within it. Author Davy states that the (2004), “the Horned God is an Under-god, a mediator between an unknowable supreme deity and the people he is also the Goddess masculine opposite in the gender polarity”. Wiccans do not share the fear of this god that Christians do because he is not a god of evil yet one of salvation who is the lover of the Goddess and together the two are responsible for the changing of the seasons. The Horned Gods origin is unknown but there are numerous connections with gods such as ancient European pagan deities such as Cerronus, Pan, and Freyr (Adler,1979).
