|There is enough evidence that we can say that
the ancient Celts did practice and perform some form of human sacrifice. There is a great
deal of evidence that these sacrifices were both voluntary and involuntary in nature and
that the sacrificed were intermediaries that took the petitions of their people directly
before the Gods of their clan. In another mythology one person's life is sacrificed so
that a noble member of hierarchy would be healed of his terminal illness, thus showing a
belief that one sacrificed would give way for another to be saved. The Romans recorded
that Druids sacrificed humans, specifically condemned criminals often by placing them in
human shaped wicker baskets to be burned alive. Archeological records reveal a number of
sacrificial deaths, such as "Triple-deaths". In Triple deaths the victim was
drowned, stoned, and impaled on a spear simultaneously; another form was to be blugeoned,
garroted and drowned.
There is the theory that reports of sacrifice was predominantely early christian propaganda to defile the humanity of Druids and Witches. Julius Caesar had good reason to speak against the Druids since he was trying to conquer them at the time. Christian government had good reason to revile Witches since they were trying to get rid of the competition.
Witches and Druids today perform no such sacrifices as was referred to by Caesar and not only do we not believe in sacrifice, we do not advocate the killing of any living being unless in self defense or for sustenance of life. It is generally accepted in modern pagan culture that the greatest pagan principle is to harm none. Most groups include themselves as part of the 'none'. In most common consensus blood sacrifices were discontinued long before the tenet of 'harm none' was ever enacted. There are no authenticated evidences of Druid sacrifice beyond the first century CE. There is no authenticated evidence of Witches ever sacrificing a human being. The tenet of 'harm none' is accepted as dating from the late 19th century. Today, our sacrifices are herbs, incense, flowers, oils, etc....
