  • "Would you be offended if I as a witch said I preformed a spell on your behalf?"

    Good question. Personally, I wouldn't be offended and I would try to explain very respectfully that because of my religious beliefs I cannot accept or condone those spells, but that I appreciate the good thoughts and intentions.
    I certainly wouldn't give her the finger or mock her good thoughts by saying they do nothing for me or anything of the sort...

  • I don't get it either, if they don't believe then it should not matter either way...like I have always said, it is meant with good intentions .....
