LOL it's ironic that you brought that up.

Someone said something similar that the actual charge should be "quackery", not "sorcery". Since it's definitely not "sorcery" in this case.

Re: Woman in her 60ies Executed for Sorcery

Another point there is a lot of fraud about a lot of things going on in the world right now. And people just willingly allow themselves to be ripped off. If it sounds/looks too good too be true, it probably is.

The execution is disgusting enough, but for the government to actually find someone guilty of ''witchcraft'' is beyond civilized behaviour.

I partially agree with you but unless you are an aboriginal Australian your statement is just hypocritical.

I am not aboriginal, and I fail to see how I am hypocritical... Australia was conquered by the British in more primitive times where there were no laws or regard for basic human rights. I am the type of person who lives in the "right here right now", so I fail to see how the past has anything to do with right now. Australia is an advanced country and we certainly don't want people coming here and leeching off the government. Immigrants who arrive here legally and are eager to work are more than welcome. If expressing discontent at some of the trash that want to live here, don't want to work, turn to crime and then critisize this country is a crime, then I am guilty
