Witches Betwixt - Episode 9 - Witchcraft & Politics

September 12, 2018

Witches Betwixt

Oh boy, we're getting political in this episode. Where do politics fit into the witch/pagan/queer community? Let's discuss. 

 Show Notes:

 About the "Voltaire" quote:

 The exact quote is "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

 It's often misattributed to Voltaire, but it was actually written in a book called "The Friends of Voltaire." It's not a direct quote from Voltaire but rather the author's interpretation of Voltaire's thinking.

 Also, cool fact, the book was written by S. G. Tallentyre, which was the pseudonym of Evelyn Beatrice Hall.

 Knowledge is power!

 We found a link to the U.S. Military's list of religions that they recognize through this Patheos.com article:

 Witchcraft specifically is not listed as a religion according to this document.
