What comes around goes around





 

What comes around goes around



I did a report on the history of witches as my final project for my religious studies, and I learned some very interesting things.

If you go back before the big Christian witch hunts you'll see a lot of reports of people getting burned for accusing others of being witches. The explanation was because the church believed that only through God could you perform "magic" so even if someone tried to cast spells and what not it would be ineffective. Therefore the belief that others could perform magic was seen as just as pagan as people attempting it.

So if you accused someone of being a witch there was no grantee the "witch" would get killed, but you sure as hell would just for thinking witches existed.

As we all know the church eventually gave in to the people's demand for "justice" and the big witch hunts started.

It was only the Proddies who hunted witches.

this is kinda funny because i think when Christians came to Iceland and i think norway they actually had to convince them that women were Witches as it was mostly believed that men were Witches, i don't really know if this is true but it would be fun to see a comic about it
oh wait i just went back and realized it was your comic that mentioned it. lol stupid me

I see. Well, I tend to blend thease things in my mind, unfortunatly. I am certenly no expert in christian history.

@Bloodblender Well Gnosticism had died out long before the council of Nicea, so it can't be that which he is referring to.

I dont think he mentioned the time, just that it was about the idea of the trinity being favoured by the poison users, and the idea of one god favoured by the victims. He mentioned names of belief systems too, but I dont remember those. Gnosticism may have been involved, but I am not sure.

@Bloodblender It's just that I've never heard of it. What field is he talking about? If it's after 800 I find it easier to believe.
