For those of you unfamiliar with witchcraft outside an episode of Charmed you may be a little bewildered about what is in the following article. The story is new to me as well, however the kind of story it is, is not.........

Here's a picture of a toy Gran Torino. I couldn't find one of a Mexican witch.


JR's Proverbs: Mexican witchcraft has a long a storied history. Growing up in southern Texas I have heard my share. Witchcraft is most prevalent in the towns and desert that line the US-Mexico border. But it reaches down into the interior of Mexico and into South America.

Most of the most violent witchcraft is practiced by drug running gangs. But there are other cults that have their own doctrines and systems of beliefs.

Other less violent traditions are supported by local toleration of superstition. Including the Catholic church. Though it is mostly because most Mexican witchcraft normally takes the "harmless" form of putting lemons behind doors or onions under beds for good luck. A don't ask don't tell policy if there ever was one. If anyone has ever watched spanish language channels you may have seen ads for magic medallions etched with all kinds of occult symbolism that promise love, wealth and good health. Eyerolls everyone.

As for the article. I hear something like this every couple of years. And I have for much of my life. Now I won't knock anyone for knocking on wood or owning a rabbit's foot. But I draw the line at people putting freshly plucked chicken hearts, and believe me the ingredients get wierder, into jars to curse someone because they never learned to handle their anger in a positive constructive way and now want spooky spirits to hex their enemies.

So I guess it's just a waiting game for the next Mexican black magic death story. dry.gif

That is creepy, especially that these people really perform these acts. Anyone ever see The Serpent and the Rainbow??
