Many, many innocents have suffered and died, at the hands of witch hunters; A Sad Fact. of all superstitious faiths! It remains as one of the religious Principles, The US Of A was founded upon, that the Pilgrims brought with them from Europe! Why? Because Queen Elizabeth 1st, daughter of Ann Boleyn, and the reason Ann was brave enough to thwart the whims of Henry. Ann Was beheaded for only one reason; she would not give Horny a divorce, Why? If Ann had allowed Henry VIII, to divorce her, Elizabeth, in the eyes of the church, would have become a bastard, and lost any claim to the throne of England. Ann knew this, and thus refused the divorce; she could have saved her neck. As Queen of England, Elizabeth I, made a royal proclamation that; The Roman Catholic Religious practice of witch hunting; was banned.
