A reply to the articule  Witchcraft Murders-why is it happening?

The London couple should be only tried for murder and associated charges. Unless of course, they can show that evil spirits actually exist and secondly these spirits actually resided in the boy who's life they illegally took.  As most rational people will understand that there has never been any proof of the existence of spirits, their reasons for torturing this boy to death, are and should be considered irrelevant and dismissed accordingly.  All that would be left for the court to do is, present a case in which they show that these two people actually did the torture that lead to the death of the boy, and requested an appropriate jail sentence, such as life without parole.

A little known bit of information about witches flying around on broomsticks at night. Yes, in the middle ages or "The Dark Age", single women or women who's husbands had been drafted to go and fight in one or other pointless wars of the time, missed them. Or rather they missed the services that these husbands provided. And so, after a hard day house keeping, at night using a hand broom, or rather the handle of a broom, they would ride to heights usually achieved with their husbands. Certain folk, usually of a religious pervertion, would be on the look out for this type of activity, usually though peeking in windows at night, and being arosed to these types of behaviours, they would denounce the women for causing such feelings and emotions in their own minds and bodies. This was one of the reasons that lead to the persecution of women by the millions during this Age of Darkness. Perverted males, who could not come to terms with their own sexuality, and put the blame for it on others, using tools they created for this purpose, namely religious writings.

London's Project Violet is a police inititive together with local groups, to monitor and inform the public about Female Genital Mutilation, using the FGM act of 2003 which makes it illegal for anyone to participate with any sort of arrangement to perform FGM on another person, either within the United Kingdom or outside it.  Any found to be involved in aiding, abetting, counselling, procuring or actually carrying out FGM can face a jail sentence of up to 14 years.

The solution to removing the hatred that witchcraft brings, is to show and educate those who believe in it, that it is totally false. Once you have debunked the claim, then you can start to work on the real reason why the accuser has a problem with the person accused of witchcraft, and always you will find a petty human emotion behind this charge. It stands to reason, that if witchcraft is impossible, there must be another reason why the charges where brought against the accused.  Find that out and then you might be able to provide a real solution. 

As with western society, the new witches are cute and friendly, but if tempered with education and reason, it is possible to reduce dramatically any chances of harm. Make sure, constantly that people understand that witchcraft is a silly irrational passtime, with no real effects on the physical world. This is not to say that one should just redicule it, which is a good tool, but also one must show why witchcraft can not work as claimed.  Again it falls to education to solve this, the more you understand about the real world, the less chance you are to grasp at magical solutions to your problems.  
Claims about witchcraft being a growing movements are extremely doubtful, because of the meme, that "The Internet is where religions come to die". Our knowledge of the world grows daily and the failures of religions are repeated time and again, and these failure are noticed more and more by the citizens of the world, though the internet. We see the claims failing, and see why they fail, so we do not want to be associated with such failures and leave. All because of the E word, education will set everyone free. As to the fastest growing group, that would be those who are atheist, or hold no religious beliefs.
