It took more than three centuries, but the last Salem witch who wasn’t has been officially pardoned today (www.usnews.com)

lawmakers on Thursday formally exonerated Elizabeth Johnson Jr., clearing her name 329 years after she was convicted of witchcraft in 1693 and sentenced to death at the height of the Salem Witch Trials.

I don’t know what the point of all this is. Our lawmakers are really wasting time on something that is 300 years old. I don’t care if she was a witch or not, spend time on the here and now not on something 3 centuries ago.

I’ve always wondered if they actually were witches. I’m not sure why we all assume they weren’t….oh wait I do….because the narrative in charge told us so!

Exactly! Like how do they know this woman was innocent?

Right. It’s the mainstream narrative so I automatically disbelieve it. There’s a very good chance these people were actually witches.

I’m sure some were witches and some weren’t. Either way it doesn’t mean they weren’t “innocent”, or that they deserved such horrendous imprisonments and death.
