Many witches, including myself, feel no particular affinity for these religions but respect their followers and the right of each person to practice a religion that suits their own beliefs. Pagans in general believe there is no one fundamental “right” way to believe and one person’s truth is as valid as another’s.
You do find the odd holier than thou witch/pagan who gets a bit hoity toity because "our festivals were here first and the Christians nicked them..." but in general there is little bigotry in the craft. Most witches are too busy getting on with their own lives to bother persecuting other religions for getting on with theirs.
I personally detest bigotry of any kind and as I have close friends in both the Christian and Muslim communities, I find criticism of these religions pretty offensive. There is a lot of wisdom, not only in just these two world religions but also in Sikhism, Hinduism, Buddism and just about any other religion you could care to mention. The fundamental message in most religions is similar at grass roots level anyway - Worship your God(s), be kind to others and live your life in a moral way. And when it comes down to it, that makes good sense really doesn't it?
