...you could accuse them of being a witch, and have them burned.

https://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/no-one-tortured-witches-like-the-swiss/32908

"According to Utz-Tremp, 30,000 to 60,000 people were burnt at the stake for witchcraft in Europe between the 15th and 18th centuries, including 6,000 in Switzerland, of whom 300 were executed in Fribourg."

Taking a cue from the mormons, though, the Swiss in the past few years have stared doing innocence declarations for the dead. They're officially "rehabilitating" folks they (mistakenly) burned at the stake for being witches centuries ago. So they can get out of spirit prison and get into the CK?

Why haven't they issued a blanket Declaration of Innocence? Are they concerned that some actually were witches?

And back in an older day still, if the guy holding your horse is a little awkward, you can cut his hands off (scene from Ammianus, 4th Century AD).

Darn.

I thought we were in the presence of greatness.

PS: You are still a witch.

Note: The first witch hung in the colonies - in Connecticut - was sentenced by a magistrate from whom the longest second counselor in the FP was descended: Daniel H. Wells (related to the actions of MMM as commander of the legion).

I bet many of them are already posthumously Mormonized.

Back in the old Joe days, if you had a neighbor you did like but she didn't want to "marry" you in secret and not tell her husband, he would just publically accuse you of being a whore.

I do 2 or 3 burn piles on my property every year. Everytime I light one up I think to myself, "there's never a witch or a heretic around when you need one. Perfect waste of a good burn pile."

But I suppose if there were witches around, I'd have to install a ducking stool out back in the creek to keep up.

on a string of Christmas lights went out the whole string didn't work. So if you put a little bit of paper under a bulb it could drive your neighbor crazy trying to find the bad bulb.

Oh, I was bad...
