Actually Mia, there are plenty of witches trained formally or not who have no problem at all with curses. In fact most of the early neo-Pagan movement and virtually all of the Ceremonial Magic Lodges from which modern witchcraft and Wicca (no they are not the same) draw from had no such prohibitions. Ethics yes, but their ethics included the proper use of offensive force. This is reflected everywhere in our roots, such as in the adage, "To be able to heal, a witch must know how to curse". MANY Witches and other Pagans have no use for the Three Fold Law either. It has no basis or validation. Cause and effect yes, three fold, no. Also be careful when you call folks ignorant. Your reference to "Voodoo" as well as assumed "universal" witchcraft values are far from knowledegable or accurate. I am a lineaged Witch and Ceremonial Magician of established Lodges. While I disagree with much of Mulkrin's teachings and philosophies, it would be a significant mistake to assume that Mulkrin is not very well read and knowlegedable. You may not agree with him, yet that does not make his techniques less valid or effective. Mulkrin's ethics may be less than they could be, yet that doesn't mean his magick is.
