I read much on this topic, but never a clear answer. If the answer is NO, & a lodge still permits it to happen what are the consequences for that lodge? Seems to be a hot topic in some areas & yet isn't CLEARLY mandated by GLoT.
Would the individual's obligation to the fraternity be binding IF sworn to that specific diety?? IF so, the answer would and should be yes.
Wicca does not have a central figure. The obligation, at least in my interpretation of it, requires a belief in some kind of supreme being. Wiccans do not typically follow a hierarchy of deities or have one single higher power.
Isn't that the purpose of having the GAOT? To be the generic representative of that higher power, whatever/whoever it may be?
What book would a Wiccan take the oath on? Wicca is very decentralized, and doesn't have such things to my knowledge.

Touchy subject for sure. If we allow a Wiccan, then what's to stop a Satanist from petitioning as well? Honestly, religion shouldn't matter. If you're a decent person and serve the Lodge, I'll support you within that environment.
If anything, Satanism has a closer cosmology to Christianity than Wicca does, and both of them are closer to Christianity than Buddhism is in fundamental cosmology. What SPECIFIC doctrines of Wicca do you claim make it a "gateway" to admitting Satanists to Freemasonry? Could you elucidate, with sources?
