'Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn, and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
THE DEVIL & KING JAMES
Witches are getting government grants these days and the Archbishop of Canterbury is a Druid. Millions of Harry Potter readers are getting basic instruction in how to summon Luciferian demons and make pacts with them for knowledge, ie casting spells. Some children are getting "Hogwarts Headaches" as described to the New England Journal of Medicine.
Those who fought against the practitioners of Black Magic in the past would be amazed to see it embraced as a harmless hobby in our time. Four hundred years ago in England and Scotland there was a law against the occult.
The following excerpt from the book Witches and Sorcerers by Arkon Daraul explains how it came about:
"There can hardly have been a monarch in history so brave and determined an enemy of magic as King James VI of Scotland and I of England. He has, in fact, become something of a laughing-stock through his writings on the subject. It has been said more than once that his superstitious turn of mind was eventually responsible for much of the reaction against a belief in traditional witchcraft."
"Yet James did not write at second-hand. He was moved to fight the witches only after plots projected by occult means against his life and loves had been uncovered. His Three Books on Demonology were based upon personal examinations of confessed witches..."
"There can be no doubt that there was a secret society practising magic as one weapon against the King. Among the members was Francis Stewart, Earl of Bothwell, who could succeed to the throne of Scotland if James VI were to die without children."
"Then there was the Devil's Secretary. John Fian, known as Doctor Fian, was schoolmaster at a place near Edinburgh. When arrested (but only after torture) he confessed that he had practised magic and also that he was the secretary and registrar to the group of witches using a local church for their meetings at dead of night..."
"Many people of undoubted importance were connected with this magic, plotting against the King. One -- Lady Jean Lyon, a daughter of the Earl of Glamis who had been killed, according to a confession, by a magical waxen image. She was a friend of one of the prime movers in the witch-cult of the time, Barbara Napier, wife of an important citizen of Edinburgh..."
"This kind of thing could not be allowed to continue. In the first year of his reign James induced the Parliament in London to enact the statute which, it was hoped, would help to uproot the 'monstrous evils of the enchanters': It said:"
"'If any person, shall use, practise, or exercise
any invocation or conjuration of any evil and wicked spirit,
or shall consult, covenant with, entertain, employ, feed or reward
any evil and wicked spirit, to or for any intent and purpose;
or take up any dead man, woman or child out of their grave,
or the skin, bone, or any part of any dead person,
to be used in any manner of witchcraft, sorcery or enchantment,
or shall use any witchcraft, sorcery or enchantment,
whereby any person shall be killed, destroyed, wasted, consumed, pined or lamed
in his or her body, or any part thereof;
that then every such offender, their aiders, abettors and counsellors
shall suffer the pains of death.'"
