All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
I love love love this show. There is plenty wrong with it from a Witch perspective. However it is well written, extremely captivating and completely fearless.
I don't know about you, but I don't even pretend to have "powers" like these characters do. And I am pretty darn sure I don't know anyone else who has them either, whether they pretend to or not.
Personally I don't behave the way these witches do, but it is fun to watch. Wouldn't we all like to be Bitches and just not care about the consequences once in awhile?
They do go way beyond Bitchery and cross the line of morality with barely a backward glance. I couldn't cross that line even if I wanted to or if I thought I could get away with it, but it is fantasy.
My biggest problem with this show is that religious fundamentalists will latch on to any thing they can to tag Witches as evil. Unfortunately there are a lot of people out there who cannot distinguish between fantasy and reality.

Aside the powers thing, what else?
Personally, unless you're in league with the Devil you're not practicing American Witchcraft, lol
These are American Witch lineages to Salem and the Afro-Caribbean practices handed down by Tituba. I like the "Born not Made" aspect of it the most. They were born this way ;)
Papa Lega needs Souls of the Innocent. Don't hate the player, hate the game. He's just a messenger for the Loa, an intercessor between the Divine and Mankind.
It's fictional so I don't even look at it from a 'how does it show witchcraft' perspective. I love this show.
I think it's funny it's called the SUPREME. Supremacy, having acted out the 7 Wonders. How divine :)
wait a second...what happened with papa legba? I dont remember that part..isnt the season over?
Season is not over yet. The season finale is this Wed. :-) Bright Blessings!
No they took a break for a few hellish weeks during the holidays and they started up again on Jan 8th I believe.
I really like the history behind the coven and the history of the witches. Especially how they hint that witches stole stuff from Africa long ago.
How has it been ruined? I didn't spoil the plotline, not to mention the show has already aired up to 1/10/14.
I love Queenie too. She's a trip.
