Sir Bedevere: There are ways of telling whether she is a witch.
-—Are there? Oh well, tell us.
Sir Bedevere: Tell me. What do you do with witches?
—Burn them.
Sir Bedevere: And what do you burn, apart from witches?
—More witches.
—Wood.
Sir Bedevere: Good. Now, why do witches burn?
—...because they’re made of... wood?
Sir Bedevere: Good. So how do you tell whether she is made of wood?
—Build a bridge out of her.
Sir Bedevere: But can you not also build bridges out of stone?
—Oh yeah.
Sir Bedevere: Does wood sink in water?
—No, no, it floats!... It floats! Throw her into the pond!
Sir Bedevere: No, no. What else floats in water?
—Bread.
—Apples.
—Very small rocks.
—Cider.
—Gravy.
—Cherries.
—Mud.
—Churches.
—Lead! Lead!
—A Duck.
Sir Bedevere: ...Exactly. So, logically...
—If she weighed the same as a duck... she’s made of wood.
Sir Bedevere: And therefore...
...A witch!

I wonder if she’d accept a Catholic into her coven, and offer her living room to a group of Christians holding a prayer service?

from the article:"You don't have to be pagan to come and join us - it's just a fun open night with evening gowns and fancy dress and a fantastic Abba tribute group playing.

I think I found the real reason they were denied.

Yes Sandra, the truth is out.

We've tried to keep it secret for 2,000 years but in the end, it was just too much to hide and somebody had to blow the lid off it.

Now the whole world knows.

The Catholic Church disapproves of witchcraft.

Wow!!

Who knew?

HAHAHA.



HEADLINE: Church declares that people who listen to Abba tribute bands have no taste and should stay off of our premises. Have a nice day.

This may be just a first, rather extreme, "test case". the Equality laws make it difficult for Churches who let their halls out to the public to specify that groups hiring must be "compatible with the ethos and teachings of the Catholic Church," as Fr Joyce insisted. It is possible (at the moment) to restrict lettings only to Church or related groups rather than making a Church hall available for let to the general public. That constraint in itself shows how equality laws restricting the Church's activity by interdicting a perfectly reasonable source of income that would normally contribute to the common good for ordinary local groups.

Here they're saying it's RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION: Sandra Davis, the "high priestess" of Crystal Cauldron group in Stockport, Greater Manchester, said she was shocked to be told that the pagan group was not considered to be compatible with the church's "ethos".... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/religion/5560105/Witches-coven-claims-religious-persecution-after-church-hall-ban.html
