– Elspeth Reoch was accused of being a witch on the grounds that she collected yarrow, in Orkney in 1616. She was killed for the crime – Alison Pearson was burned at the stake as a witch because she knew herbal remedies. She was burned
Reframe your conception of witchcraft for modern times with WitchFest, at a Croydon, South London convention center.
A pastor from a London church concluded that Climbié was possessed by demons, and so did nothing to protect the child from violent attacks that included burnings and beatings with a hammer.
Mike Huckabee, President, Witch Killer? Mike Huckabee, Republican presidential candidate in 2008, is sure acting like he’s going to be making a run for president in 2012. He’s written a book. He’s heading to Iowa. When asked whether he’ll be running for president in the

Sarah Palin has denied the reality of global warming, doesn’t believe in education, would return reproductive health to the state it was in 100 years ago, and associates with people who go hunting for witches.
Sarah Palin can’t have it both ways. She can’t claim to be a pit bull in lipstick, but then turn into a quivering jellyfish the minute someone says “boo”.
