Wiccan sex offender Robin Fletcher free to live without supervision

 

A man who whipped and prostituted two teenage girls has been freed to live in the community without supervision for the first time in almost 20 years.

The court previously heard that Fletcher still believes that his crimes related to his “Wiccan” religious beliefs, but says he now recognises such behaviour is illegal.

I believe he should have known from the beginning this was not Wiccan or Pagan behavior as the Rule of Three would have had him dealt with.

The Game Developers Who Are Also Witches | Kotaku Australia

Horrorshow is one of a growing number of young people who practice witchcraft or identify themselves as a witch. As both VICE and The Guardian outline, witches have especially seen a resurgence among women, trans and queer-identifying people recently. Some of them dress up, some cast spells and do tarot, others create webcomics and video games.

Some see witches as icons of feminist power, or women who challenge the rules and boundaries of society. Cultural historian Rictor Norton writes that witches have always been associated with heresy, and were thought to practise unorthodox activities, such as homosexuality, which “was often an important feature of the witches’ real or alleged initiation rituals”.

Accordingly, game maker Solomon Fletcher finds that “even though the term ‘witch’ is usually tied to womanhood, it’s always felt genderless to [them]”. Witches naturally invite genderqueer discourse, and that’s part of the appeal of adopting the philosophy in 2017.

Essex: Beth Underdown’s new book on Manningtree’s Witchfinder General, Matthew Hopkins – What’s on – Ipswich Star

Glamorous business, this writing life? Not always. Beth Underdown is two sleeps away from the publication of her first novel – she’s been counting – but this is not the time to sit back with a glass of something sparkling.

It’s the evil and self-styled Witchfinder General, Matthew Hopkins, who’s bringing her 200 miles south-east. The man who thrived during the instability of the Civil War years, and is believed to be responsible for the deaths of 300 or so innocent women in less than three years, conducted most of his witch-hunts in Suffolk, Essex, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire.
