Not necessarily. Witchcraft overall is very tolerant of other religious views and does not engage itself in criticizing the beliefs of other people providing their beliefs do not violate the basic tenant of "Harm None." Witches do object to religions that attempt to suppress religious beliefs of others. We also have a strong disdain for those who use religion as an excuse to commit mass genocide. The "Burning Times" are a clear historical example of one religious group attempting to exert its philosophies and beliefs upon others using extreme measures. Perhaps an over simplified way of describing our view is this: Imagine a beautiful meadow in the forest, and there are many paths leading to this meadow. It really does not matter which path you take to get there, the important thing is that you get there without harming anyone or anything along the way, including yourself.
