Re: Witch Hunts, etc.

    When I was growing up, we were raised with the Catholic church and "the
Way".  We were admonished to keep a close mouth about "the Way", especially
around those of the Church as many of "ar'ane" had been tried and burned for
the same things that we now did.
    This was in the 1950's and 1960's, not in some ancient, bygone time.  I
agree with you, Jeff, that we have not changed much in all this time and
continue to find means to segregate "Us" from "Them" so we can kill "Them".
And, if we think that such as these Witch trials can never come again, we
fool ourselves.  The trials have always come again, just with many different
names or causes.
Blessed Be,
