So…there is not a witch hunt???

I rarely post to this blog. I would love to post more, but I don’t always have time. Just on a whim, I decided to check my stats…and lately I have been getting hits in regards to my post Witch Trials in 2007? in which I reposted a story I found on Livejournal concerning one Rhonda Gruber. So I googled the name to see what other people were finding and why the interest. Did something new happen? Is she free to practice her paganism??? It turns out that while Rhonda and her family may be practicing Pagans, that is not the sole reason the law is going after them and that her paganism isn’t really even much of factor. I found this site that has some pretty convincing evidence that kinda blows holes in Rhonda’s “it’s a witch hunt” story. And this site really breaks down all the events.

Now me being the naive person I am, thought that Rhonda’s plea for help and support was legit. I mean, when asking for help, why would someone leave out important details of the whole situation only to focus on the part of the story that makes them look like a victim? [*rolls eyes*].

Well, poo poo on me. So trusted someone and they (so far) are turning out to be bogus. I apologize to any and all practicing Pagans I may have offended and hurt.

That being said, what has is happening to Rhonda and her family isn’t something to be taken lightly. They¬† lost their home, they lost their jobs…people in their community are making it difficult for them (probably because of the paganism).¬† What started out as legit charges has kinda snowballed into something much murkier.
