    1. Honestly. I don’t get it. Lol. If it’s ok to be anything else from Christian Catholic whatever why can’t she just be a witch. Either way someone is going to give you money cause they believe in you. She definitely has lots of followers Halloween Night. She could start a church lol. Would it be legal then?

  1. “Pretending to Practice Witchcraf” so, If she ‘was’ an actual witch…she wouldn’t have been charged….??? Nice work Deputy Dog…..#pfft!

  2. You Canadians have some weird stuff going on. So how do they know she was “pretending” to be a witch? Maybe she really is a witch. And if you say none of her spells work well neither does praying to a god so does that mean they are going to start arresting preachers for pretending to know there is a god when they couldn’t possibly be sure?

    1. Such ignorance!! Keep your opinion close to you. I believe in a Creator bigger than any being on this earth. Prayer and love have helped me. Not a dollar bill!!
