SPRAGUE, Conn. (AP) - Plans to invite a witch to explain his craft at a Connecticut town's library on Halloween are causing toil and trouble.
Rev. Rapid Cabot Freeman, who hosts a public access TV show on
witchcraft, says officials in Sprague are trying to block his
appearance because of his religious beliefs.
Freeman says he planned to appear at the Sprague Public Library
to explain witchcraft and perform a ritual honoring the dead. The
admission price would benefit a group that supports the library.
The appearance is now in doubt because library trustees raised
concerns with a town official, who now questions whether Freeman
made the proper reservations and deposits for the room.
Freeman says witchcraft focuses on positive energy, and
Halloween is a perfect time to teach people more about it.
