Efforts against Witch Hunt Pages on Facebook

This information was shared on the Heathens United Against Racism page (which is a great source of information) on Facebook.

The Lady Liberty League (LLL) of Circle Sanctuary has written an open letter to Facebook regarding some of the most hateful and violent content I have seen in a long time. There are many hate-filled pages going in all sorts of directions, which is a sad reality of the post-modern era. 

In the cases addressed by the LLL letter, the exhortation is for violence against those who practice "witchcraft." Since virtually everything Heathen would be defined as "witchcraft" by certain segments of society, this is one of those issues that all Heathens should stand together (along with Pagans, Wiccans, and others who would be targeted by the hate groups) to confront.

Heathens Against Hate supports LLL call for Facebook to uphold its own rules. Facebook, as a wondrous meeting place of ideas, should not be allowed to be used as a tool for those who would engage in violence or murder.
