Islamic War On Witchcraft in Saudi Arabia

Islamic War On Witchcraft in Saudi Arabia

In a scenario  reminiscent of our own  witch-hunts, foreign domestic workers are being accused of practising  witchcraft when they ask for better pay or conditions. How do you defend yourself against witchcraft charges?  All it takes is someone who is willing to point the finger. And even if someone does practice magic it should never be considered a crime. Don’t travel to Saudi Arabia, folks.

In the comment section below the article you will find an interesting and heated debate between an atheist who does not believe magic exist and a neo-pagan. I admire the the neo-pagan’s passion, but i prefer an atheist to a religious fundamentalist any day.
