Thread Name: BS: Witches! Good and Bad?
Subject: RE: BS: Witches! Good and Bad?
I'm not...BTW GUEST, I have Webster's at home here now and the number one definition is 1. a person, especially a woman who professes or is supposed to practice magic, especially black magic;sorceress.

According to Webster, what you describe Hesp is actually called a "witch-doctor." So I'm guessing that most of our self-professed witches are actually "witch-doctors."

Wicca is not in Webster's but I'm guessing that those who say they are WICCA practicing witches are practicing their religion. No comment on that. (no information)

Now, Kendall's definition is surely akin to number four in Webster's: a bewitching or charming woman!

No one has mentioned the definition of water dousing as a witchly activity.

(hg, in search of the truth!) LOL
