In Victoria, punishment of witches to be replaced with punning of witches
Witches get spell from law
Melbourne Herald Sun, 15 April 03
Witches will be in stitches over the lifting of legal hitches on their craft.
Currently, witchcraft, sorcery, enchantment and fortune telling carry a fine of $500. But Attorney-General Rob Hulls said that after a review of the Vagrancy Act, the State Government would repeal the dated law.
"We govern for all Victorians -- and that includes witches, magicians and sorcerers. That's why I can predict, without having to look into my crystal ball, that these offences are going to be repealed and disappear."
He said other offences under the Vagrancy Act, including begging and loitering, would also be reviewed and updated.
Without looking into my crystal ball I too will make a prediction: Governments will continue to be increasingly antagonistic to Christianity and to Judeo-Christian values while becoming increasing tolerant and open to anything and everything else.
