Re: My initial thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials

thanks for agreeing. if i'm being honest, i find it hard to express my opinions on these trials. they get people so fired up.

Re: My initial thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials

Witches were just poor ugly old women who made **** like beer, and dumb honky religious zealots ****ed they **** up because they hate women and were mentally deficient aka religious.

Re: My initial thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials

You’re only saying that cos ur ancestors survived sad5.gif

Re: My initial thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials

I had an ancestor who was convicted of witchcraft in Fairfield, CT back in the 1600s. Her name was Mercy Disborough.

They gave her the old tie-her-to-a-chair-then-throw-her-in-the-water-and-see-if-she-drowns treatment, but records say she "bobbed like a cork" even when they tried to force her under. She was eventually acquitted, and was even played by Winston Churchill's daughter in a made-for-TV movie back in the 50s.

I honour her legacy by being a real-life pagan. May as well give those townspeople the bang for their buck all these centuries later.

Hark! Harold the angel sings.

Re: My initial thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials

The treatment back then was horrible! I will look her up and send blessing to the winds in her honor. love10.gif

Re: My initial thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials

My ancestor was the one who tied her to the chair. Dr. Friar Wescott Branch III.

Re: My initial thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials

LOL @ “bobbed like a cork” - pleaaaase 😭 these pruney gross colonial men are embarrassing. I’m surprised she was acquitted. This seems like one of those guilty until impossibly proven innocent type shams.

I honour her legacy by being a real-life pagan. May as well give those townspeople the bang for their buck all these centuries later.


We love a happy ending 🥂

…you may as well get some high kicks in, right?

Re: My initial thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials

I had an ancestor who testified against a neighbor, an accused witch in 17th century Nova Scotia.

I support false testimony.

Re: My initial thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials

Fuck yeah. You should falsely accuse a neighbour of making animal sacrifices to Satan in his memory.

Damn, it’s in your blood Corwin?!

Remind me to never call you as a witness 🥲

Re: My initial thoughts on the Salem Witch Trials

Okay, maybe it wasn’t about witches and didn’t technically take place in Salem

*air quotes*

It was the Australian bitch trials.

I am parodying this thread: https://www.filmboards.com/board/t/My-initial-thoughts-on-the-Kyle-Rittenhouse-trial-3402081/

Jan made the point that it’s tragically late to have “initial thoughts” on that event laugh.gif
