An urban legend says that after the witch hunt debacle was done, a girl in the group who was one of the accusers in the witch trials was on a road and seeing a group coming her way, fell down writhing and screaming the Devil was attacking her. The group looked at her and more or less said in old English; "Give it up already." The girl picked herself up off the floor, wiped the dust off her dress, and calmly walked away. Her gig was up and she knew it.
The difference between those group of girls in Salem who started the witch hysteria and anti-gay Christians is the group of girls saw the writing on the wall and gave up their little act. Anti-gay Christians are getting the hint that more and more Christians aren't buying their 'anti-gay with the Bible' hysteria, so unlike the Salem girls who stopped their nonsense in their own town, anti-gay Christians took their anti-gay hysteria to other countries who would have them, because unlike the Salem Girls, they just can't give up their little act.
