Rfv-sense, Wicca. I've always always always seen the Maiden, Mother and Crone, never the Lady. Also, none of them is "predominant". Some people might identify more with one or another, but none of them is more important. — [Ric Laurent] — 13:35, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

I should add mother too then, and let's reword Lady in that case. Also since you clearly imply that you believe in the term Lady's existance and even the laziest google search would show that, this seems to be an invalid nomination for verification.Lucifer 08:44, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
Also within the theology of Wicca of course I believe the Lady is to be equal to the Horned God her male counterpart as the religion espouses equality, but in retrospect and from a neutral point of view, the Lady is far more prominent and she is the embodiment of Mother/Maiden/Crone, that is what I meant by predominant, how do you think we should reword this?Lucifer 08:50, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
Uh, how about before you reword it you should add citations that indicate that someone out there calls what most Wiccans call Mother Lady. I don't clearly imply anything. In fact I frankly don't believe that you can find such cites. Furthermore, the Horned Hunter is entirely irrelevant to this discussion. — [Ric Laurent] — 11:44, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
You did and it's ludicrous to contradict just for the sake of contradiction. Why don't you add them if you think they need verification. There are tons of books on Wicca so they do exist. If you think it is, reread my previous comments or ask a friend to explain it to you if you are having trouble. Good day.Lucifer 08:36, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
I've read numerous books on Wicca and none of them have referred to "The Mother" as "The Lady". If by December fifth this doesn't have quotations clearly demonstrating that use, with the Lady being compared or contrasted to the Maiden and the Crone, I'm going to delete it. — [Ric Laurent] — 12:57, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
Instead not disrupting the verification process by not impacting other edit'seditor's ability to chime in or "Lady"-forbid following policy you just keep soapboxing your self-perceived superiority and general worthlessness, which is sad. =( In any case this term has been cited dude.Lucifer 03:08, 5 December 2011 (UTC)
