Wiccan Family Contacts Police After Seeing Halloween Display

The mother and daughter duo went to the police after seeing a Halloween display of witches being burnt at the stake.

Local pagans offended by witch-burning display in Canandaigua

I can't stress this enough. Wiccans get upset about this sort of thing because they have accepted ahistorical beliefs concerning an unbroken line of "Wicca" extending down through history into modern times. The people burnt or hanged as witches in the middle ages were not Pagans. They were Christians. Seeing a Halloween display of a witch being burnt at the stake or hanged should be no more offensive to Wiccans as seeing a display featuring bloody Jason Vorhees or Freddy Krueger.
