Sandra Miesel is an Interesting Writer

Here’s a piece she did on Witch Persecution. I find the parallels curiously apropos for our time. A small group of people is convicted of doing the Unthinkable in the midst of the Christian community. The community reacts with the dawning and dreadul awareness that They Could be Everywhere and We Never Realized it. Communal freak out. We had precisely this reaction after 9/11 and now we’re having it again with the homosexual abuse scandals in the priesthood. I hope it doesn’t lead to some of the unhappy consequences Miesel documents.
