Title: What Century are we in??? School in Oklahoma Accuses Girl of "Witchcraft"
Mood: amazed
I mean, really... WTF???

Grabbed this one off Pharyngula: Oklahoma school administrators accuse a student of witchcraft. (the ACLU is involved too)

Just the thought that anyone in 21st century America would even think witchcraft is real is scary. But its one thing to think your bible tells you to fear witches, and entirely another to violate a teenager's rights because you think she is casting hexes.

And make no mistake about it, this trouble is being brewed up because hysterical theists. They already believe in unprovable invisible things, so its easy for them to just add a few more ridiculous claims to the mix.

"It's hard for me to believe that in the year 2000 I am walking into court to defend my daughter against charges of witchcraft brought by her own school," said Timothy Blackbear. "But if that's what it takes to clear her record and get her life back to normal, that's what we'll do."
