Witches and Teachers

Two things in the news are the burning of suspected witches and also the imminent release of matric results.
If I was a person of influence in the Methodist Church I would say to the people:

As a Methodist Christian you may not participate in denouncing people as witches or in victimising them or their family.
As a Methodist Christian teacher you need to prioritise the development of the next generation. You may not participate in any activities that jeopardise the education of those under your charge. If necessary we will create a Methodist Teachers Association which will deal with collective grievances in a constructive way that does not hurt the children.

That's what I would say.
