I'm sure you're convinced that no self described Wiccan would ever try to lay a curse on someone. It comes back threefold? So what? Other religions have suicide bombers. Why not wicca?

Hell, if...

In a better timeline, this would be a false flag lawsuit brought by a skeptic for the express purpose of establishing an anti-psychic legal precedent. Or not.
