I also was among the many who queried him about his life as sheriff, his reputation as a voodoo witch doctor
Quote:

....his pitched witchcraft battles with such interesting characters as Dr. Buzzard and Dr. Eagle, was virtually perfect well into his eighth decade.
Quote:

The top drawer was filled to overflowing with letters from all parts of the United States and many foreign countries, seeking his help in removing a "curse" which the letter writers felt had been placed upon them.And what I do for them can't be done with medicine or psychiatry. A person who believes that he has been cursed, or that a 'root' has been placed on him, will sicken and die just as though he were stricken with cancer or some other malady."
In my hometown there are people who still believe. As a child I remember our Sheriff McTeer was known for helping rid one of a curse, or root. There have been books written of Ed McTeer but nothing brings about the reality of all this as seeing someone actually digging up their own yard searching for a "root" and being unable to find it, calling on Sheriff McTeer.

>you can laugh all you want when someone calls themself a witch. They are out there. THOUSANDS of them!

There are thousands of weirdos of every type (google "furries" for evidence of such) that doesn't make it any less ridiculous. A witch is a child's Halloween costume, not anything around which an adult should base any part of their life.

If that is how you feel, then you have likely never met a group of Pagans in their spiritual environment. Therefore you are no authority on the subject whereas I am. You can think what you want with your half-baked opinions.

LN said it good Burn Witch Burn. I say one thing My son is Pagan, I am not, I told him his belief is his, as along he don't start dressing gothic or getting piercing everywhere. I have went to Pagan stores with him and have found things like herb books that were interesting. I'm not a witch I'm a B**ch can't you tell.:laugh: :laugh:

I have also never hung out with furries or Trekkies. Doesn't mean I can't think they're ridiculous.
