PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

15. "RE: Total of 19 executed, including..."
More rats meant more plague carrying fleas which meant more plague.

I've always been very opposed to the theory that fleas caused the plagues!

The gist was that persecution of witches (and others) had little to do with religion, that was simply the weapon. It was all about maintaining and increasing control.

Yup, I agree completely. I believe it started with the Catholic church as a way to have control over the poor pagan peasants, but grew way beyond that into a political nightmare. The burning times were a big black spot in our history. Starhawk wrote of it in her book Spiral Dance in an appendix called "The Burning Times". If you get a chance, read it, it's wonderful.


--has read Spiral Dance so many times she's had to replace the book
