I gotta love it, especially with Palin the Inquisitor trying to take over:
Wicca experts encourage Christians to engage America's 'fastest-growing' religion
Monday, September 22, 2008

While many Christians today are closely monitoring the growth and activity of Islam, especially after 9/11, another religious movement has been steadily growing “under the radar” and could become among the largest religions in the United States in less than five years.

“Wicca is the fastest-growing religion in America, set to be the third largest religion by 2012,” claims Marla Alupoaicei, who co-wrote the recently released book “Generation Hex” with fellow Christian author Dillon Burroughs.

Well, it's 2013. Anyone got the figures as to where Wicca is in the 'World Religion Leader Board'?

Most of the stuff I see on the web is still from 2008, but it looks like it is still hanging low in the top 20, between 1 and 3 million open members.
(but it does note that members of certain religions, including Wicca, don't readily admit membership due to fears of intolerance/prejudice.)
