News: Witches Past and Present in Stories Fair and Foul

Halloween and Samhain might be over, today being November 5 when we in England celebrate the traditional burning of terrorists in effigy on Bonfire Night, but here's a look back to some witchy news stories from the past week:

"Witches are one way to 'safely' present strong female characters." Read the feature, based on the book Pure Lust: Elemental Feminist Philosophyby theologian and radical feminist Mary Daly, at the Los Angeles Times.

"Space witch, broomstick, wizard shine in the skies for Halloween." See photos on the Fox News website.

"Witches of Belvoir 'may have been framed'." BBC news looks at a historic witch persecution.

"When witch trial was real." Another look at a historic witch trail, via Hebden Bridge Times.

"Hastings white witch’s warning over Halloween cons." Kevin Carlyon, the self-appointed "high priest of British white witches" makes some ludicrous statements at The Argus. Have a laugh here.

More ludicrous statements in "Curse of Tutankhamun may have been work of Satanist killer" - a feature on The Telegraph website where a historian blames Aleister Crowley for six London deaths.
