belief in witchcraft in backwards places

Ya know how in backwards countries you sometimes hear apocryphal news of panics where people are persecuted for practicing witchcraft that makes penises fall off, or makes people sick, or something like that? Backwards primitive places like Oklahoma.

From an entry Elf made today that's got some other good links.

According to wikipedia, the case was dismissed by a court with the judge ordering court costs to be paid by Ms Blackbear's family. Eventually the court costs were forgiven in return for forgoing an appeal. Unbelievable -- apparently charges of witchcraft are reasonable in Ok.


The last imprisonment for witchcraft in Great Britain was during WWII.

Are you kidding? Have an excuse to break free from the public school system? I would've loved to have been kicked out of school for witchcraft. :-P
