WGN's "Salem" Disclaimer of Accuracy for Salem's accused in 1692 and Religious Freedom

128 Signatures Goal: 1,000


WGN Channel's "Salem" is premiering on April 20, 2014

Let's ask WGN to remind viewers that the show "Salem"is FICTION and NOT historically accurate, with a disclaimer before each episode.

To WGN:

We ask that you please remind "Salem's" viewers that the brave colonists that lost their lives during the Salem Witch Trials in 1692 were NOT GUILTY. The accused colonists were Christians and did not practice "Witchcraft" or "Devil worship".

Witchcraft, Paganism, and/or Wicca is an authentic religion that does NOT recognize the "DEVIL" and is NOT being portrayed with any accuracy.

    I'm sorry but it's a TV show. I don't know how American viewers see something but generally those in Britain tend to realise that it's entertainment and not historical fact. This is the da Vinci code all over again. I'm sorry but this goes to show the general lack of intelligence of American viewers if you have to create this petition rather than any fault on the TV network

    The Salem witch trials resulted in real people being barbarically killed for no crime whatsoever. That's a horror story to be learned from, not celebrated.

    My ancestor was Ann Prudeater, an accused "witch" who lost her life to the madness in Salem. I don't want people to think that she was a Satanist or real witch. She was a real person with a real life and deserves to have a respectful death.
