How easy it is to divide a community – A lesson taught somewhere about the Salem Witch Trials, and their teacher told them they were going to play a game …
How easy it is to divide a community
“I’m going to come around and whisper to each of you whether you’re a witch or a regular person. Your goal is to build the largest group possible that does NOT have a witch in it. At the end, any group found to include a witch gets a failing grade.”
The teens dove into grilling each other. One fairly large group formed, but most of the students broke into small, exclusive groups, turning away anyone they thought gave off even a hint of guilt.
“Okay,” the teacher said. “You’ve got your groups. Time to find out which ones fail. All witches, please raise your hands.”
No one raised a hand.
The kids were confused and told the teacher he’d messed up the game. “Did I? Was anyone in Salem an actual witch? Or did everyone just believe what they’d been told?”
And that is how you teach kids how easy it is to divide a community.
Shunning, scapegoating and dividing destroys far more than they protect. There’s plenty of it going around.
Do not allow the ruling elite to divide and destroy us. We must remain united against those who would do so …

Remember we must love one another, not shame or hurt them! What would Jesus do? WWJD!
If you love, God, you will love your enemies as well.
