You are never asked to sell your soul (or even lend it) in any form of Wicca, Neo-paganism or Witchcraft of which I am aware. Heck, you don't even
have to believe in God/dess to be a Witch! Wicca is a religion, but Witchcraft is what it says -- a craft. I know a number of atheistic Witches.
As to free will, well, if a person is in a magical rite or Circle against their will, then it's almost a guarantee that this will cause problems in a
working. If you have a number of individuals working in concert and one (or more) going against the flow, then the energy flow becomes corrupted
and/or difficult to manage. A good analogy is a symphony -- it's beautiful and moving when all the musicians are in the flow, but one person
playing off-key because hir heart isn't in it can quickly turn the whole thing into a dissonant mess. If you really don't want to be in a Circle,
ritual or working, you can bet that no one else involved will want you there, either.
