The Burning Times Continue

While I fully claim my "Witchiness" there are still many who are falsely accused and being murdered for being Witches. Yesterday began 30 days of Advocacy against Witch-hunts (yes I'm a day late starting), you can find more info at http://www.paganrightsalliance.org/30_days.html. No matter what your religious views or beliefs are this is something we all need to get behind and stop.
As I say, I am one who claims the title as Witch. I do this for many reasons, one of those is to help dispel misconceptions about what a witch is. Sadly, many of those being accused and burned are labeled "witch" because they are ill, old, disabled, or outspoken. Please research, educate yourself and others, send the letter (as I did),light a candle and lets work to help those in unbelievable need!!
