Boy murdered for being a witch Witch Hunts in the Modern day

Post by Skye on Fri Jan 06, 2012 1:44 pm

I thought these days were long gone. Stories such as this reveal some people lack understanding, so sad. Spiritualism has a lot of work to do. I'm not sure if we will ever see the end of this kind of behaviour.

I know Skye thanks for posting that it is so sad but then under Spiritualist in parts of Africa we see the scariest things.

With the UK being a multi-cultured society, I do wonder if it has something to do with foreign people's culture or traditions. Thank goodness Britain saw the error of her ways. I hope other countries do so in the near future.

Indeed this seems to be the type of organisation fostering issues like this.

We also have a recent book reviewing the epidemic of "witch" killings in Europe in the 15th, 16th and 17th Century

There's those who'd do the same and worse to us if they thought they could get away with it. We're all of us only ever a law change away from the martyr Helen Duncan's era.
