Yes I’ve read about this of course and while it could be true in instances I’ve recently been reading about how some were actually witches from Luciferian/satanic families. Knowing what is going on in the present I’m beginning to put more weight on the second theory.You may enjoy this book. It's only 48 pages but gives a history of the real reason for the witch hunts. Women healers were paid with chickens or goats, occasionally money. Anyway, they had real property. When the allopathic (modern medicine) started women were seen as competition for the available funds and were demonized. In some places, entire towns had all but one of their women killed as witches with the surviving one left to warn any imported replacement women to not practice the healing arts.
Also psychological help has always been dark and light. The characture of evil drs in white coats doesn’t come from nowhere. In fact the mad professor character is even more believable now. I always wonder how Christian psychiatrists come to grips with HOW a lot of their knowledge was come by. Its getting much worse today. They don’t recognize the ability, and possibility, of outside manipulation either. Use in gun control and other controls (taking children away). Forgot to mention demon posession- which even Christians who believe this don't consider modern (?) silent weapons.
