It's a policy statement. How complicated is this? Witch burners have been shunned, ostracized, lampooned, marginalized, discriminated against, deplatformed. Protect your witch burners and they'll protect you.
Jeremy Renner's quasi documentary "Hansel and Gretel" is all the evidence we need.
Note to self: Don't enter residential premises constructed from high sugar content building materials.
Unless YHVH builds a house they labour in vain. I think George Washington thoroughly knew this concept. I think he was hoping his posterity would include a few good witch burners..... Join the dots team.
Recall from your nursery rhyme and fairy tale days....
What is the ONE tangible, concrete, objectively identifiable behavior that all witches have in common (even Baba Yaga, a well known witch in a nation whose origins are in the Scythians)?
There's a reason Witches were ALWAYS burned at the stake.
There are other indicators (e.g. "casting spells")... but the one thing that every culture notes about witches is killing and eating children.
