Movie Crew At LaSalle Academy

The Haddad’s trucks are showing up around town; today it was LaSalle Academy. The crew filming “Hocus Pocus 2” took over the school with classes still in session. According to WPRI:

A sign outside of the catholic high school said, “by entering you hereby irrevocably consent to and authorize Fairy Dust Productions, Inc., its successors and assigns, to photograph you and/or make sound recordings of you and to use same worldwide, for any purpose whatsoever in perpetuity.”

(I don’t know how that’s going to go down; today’s kids are so shy.)

The Catholic Church has not always rolled out the red carpet for witches. The 15th-century compendium on demonology, Malleus Maleficarum, recommended much harsher treatment.

The Malleus suggests torture to effectively obtain confessions and the death penalty as the only certain remedy against the evils of witchcraft. At the time of its publication, heretics were frequently punished to be burned alive at the stake and the Malleus encouraged the same treatment of witches. The book had a strong influence on culture for several centuries.

All I know is that since those witches showed up, the Red Sox have been going down in flames.

    Malleus Malificarum was used by the anti-Catholic Puritans in New England and elsewhere. It was not the only Catholic book favored by Puritans. They also loved (St.) Robert Bellarmine’s treatise on Regicide in which he gives the conditions in which it is permitted, even virtuous, to execute a monarch. And off with the head of Charles I. Early examples of ecumenism.
