it depends on the area really. same with countries, certain ones believe old legends more than others. my country is alright with witches [generally] but the smaller towns are grey area's, it depends how stuck in old beliefs the area is. my town doesn't go around with torches hunting down witches, but whenever they find out about things involving witches [occult books, covens, occult shops] that's when they break out the torches and demand it ends. back in 2002 the high school was forced to remove all books on wicca [teaching aids for the world religions class] from the school library because a bunch of parents basically went 'think of the children'. unless new ones were recently purchased, the religion section now consists of 2 books on 'witchcraft'; one about the salem witch trials, and a paragraph in a book about cults.
i've gone into the city, and other towns, for gatherings or supplies and they don't care. my town does just because the majority of people don't know the real facts and go by the media and their own religious views. that's life really. there's a time and place to come out of the broom closet and show people we don't fly broomsticks withering your crops and cursing your livestock. i live my life with my religious views personal, if someone was to ask me i'd tell them. the reaction i get from people is usually the same thing 'really? i would of never guessed'.
