I don’t think there is any reason to feel sorry for the witch trials. You didn’t do anything wrong. It was a different time with different values and perspectives. They really felt like they were a community under attack. I deal with these issues in my book – Justice at Salem – available at http://www.justiceatsalem.com . I hope you will take a look at it.
No, I did not do anything wrong, but the movement to which I belong did.
And as some members of my movement, Christianity, are still mistreading witches today, I am sorry for that, and I’ll do what I can.
