“Burn them at the stake!” is what folks used to say. Ye-e-a-ah, that was how people felt about witches, soothsayers, fortune tellers and the like. It wasn’t a highly respected way to make a living way back when. Granted, there were those who were innocent of such accusations, who had nothing to do with divination, black magic, and such, yet because of being misunderstood, they were persecuted for their beliefs and were treated with the same attitude–meeting the same fate. Nonetheless, the attitude towards anyone who was believed to be a witch deserved their day “at the stake.”
Recently, a local newspaper took the liberty to accept and advertise the services of witches, people who are giving classes training anyone who wants to take part in casting spells! Many folks in the community thought it was a joke, at first. Times sure have changed. Attitudes as well. If you don’t have what it takes to get along in this world — cast a spell! But if that’s what you need to do… ? Think about it.
And think some more. We ask you, “What’s wrong with this picture?”
