And why is this news anyone is interested in?? Unless you're into the history of withcraft or she was a descendant, I don't see any reason to post this story. Not news.

what a waste of someones time to even investigate this, and waht a waste of media attention to put in the news. some one has to much time on their hands or the hood rats are behaving themselves today.

Ahh, the church has a long and glorious history. I would be concerned, too, if I saw someone spitting pins.

...the time that is, that I wasted looking over this article.
I agree with all other comments about this being a waste of time being published. HOWEVER, this is a good time killer of about 2mins. if you need a break from the ordinary daily grind!

LMAO! Makes you wonder if they compared her in weight to a duck before executing her.

Today she would be accused of using witchcraft to hide weapons of mass destruction.

What really scares me is that this story bothered some of you that much! I mean, seriously! Is it news? Well, technically anything can be news. I'd rather hear this than about all the shootings and wars and devastation that there is normally. That, to me, is more annoying.

I would think when somebody thinks a story is a waste of time, he/she wouldn't waste even more time writing a post on the forum about it.

I'm just sayin'...

I found this to be one of the more interesting articles on Wood. History not learned is doomed to repeat itself, and this is currently happening in many places in Africa as of late due to the big influx of fundementalist evangelical missionaries and mass rallies. (such a Benny Hinn and others) However it is probably happening among other superstitious groups as well (I'm just not aware of it).

Yeah, just ask Alysa Milano!

I was hoping the article was referring to Hillary Clinton.
