Is Hexing/Cursing Minors Ever Okay?

Postby Bluepillar » Fri Nov 20, 2020 7:55 pm

Some of us here aren't completely oblivious to the fact that something called the left hand path, and similar things, exist, so I've come to ask a question.

is hexing minors ever okay? I'm not sure how to feel about it, tbh. Minors are obviously capable of unforgiving crimes so in those circumstances it's understandable, but what about outside of those? and even then isn't it questionable?

disclaimer: It doesn't matter whether you think it's real or not, so keep the insults t9 others' religions out kindly. please. i do not want moderators having to come to this thread :(

Well I don't believe in magic, but since you asked nicely I'll approach this topic as if I did.

What does 'Hexing' do, in this case? I'd imagine the morality of it would be similar to doing something mundane with a similar effect.

Generally one should not harm minors, and offer them more openness to rehabilitation than others would normally get seeing as everyone's a dumbass at least one point or another in their early lives.

a hex is a curse, and can actually be quite draining or expensive or costly to do, depending on religion, path, and.method. sometimes it involves sacrifice of living animals, or harm to self. other times it's just a nife letter you write to your God asking for a favor. and other.times it's focusing on thoughts of harm to another person (think homicidal meditation)

sometimes the goal is to teach through positive or negative reinforcement (a spell of learning), other times it's to kill... and sometiems when people hex, they do more than casting and leaving it, and actively seek to destroy the other person in some way.

Well of course it's wrong. Will it stop someone from hexing a kid though? Probably not.

In the Philippines I can go to my local witch doctor and tell them to curse a rich couple, all for 20 bucks or some weird fetch quest for a Kapre's tooth. The only thing that stands in your way really is if you believe in Christ or Allah.

I don’t think it’s okay to place magical curses on children.

This isn’t something I’d want. Children shouldn’t be hexed. Children should be happy and be in a safe learning environment. Children should be healthy. Children shouldn’t be cursed.

I'm not sure. Will it perhaps teach future generations of children a valuable moral lesson?

We have threads on Christianity, Judaism, Islam ... This is basically about an aspect of black magic (the left-hand path), which is sort of, kind of a religion or a philosophy or ... something.

If I ever learned that there's such magic, I would have wasted no time in giving everyone a strawberry ice-cream.

Just a normal one, no curses, no drawbacks. Just wholesome magic, come on.

This is NSG. People call other religions fake all the time.

That being said, I don't believe in this, but if I did then anything that harms anyone else, especially a child, is disgusting and never acceptable for any reason whatsoever.

I don't really believe in the common idea and practice of magic.

That being said, probably not ok to will grievous harm on a minor, no.

For the topic, let's just assume magic does happen. You know how I feel about cursing or hexing even towards an adult, so... A kid is a no-no, like why in the world would I ever do that?

Maybe less of a curse, and just gonna use my magic to make their chairs uneven and wobble, but that would be as far as I would go!

the only people i say have a fake and or harmful religion tend to be Mormons, Catholics, and Scientologists, and even then most Mormons and Catholics I've mer seem pretty chill. It's more so the upper echelons i have a problem with. buf, uh, abuse of authority is a discussion for elsewhere.

What Im.getting at is that people might want to learn to stay on topic, and can pent their global fedora endeavor on 4chan with the rest of the joyless people. idc really you believe in it or not, but unlike some in this thread I will actually engage in the conversations prompted or leave/ignore them instead of taking up space that could be useful for other things - like said conversation

but they might not,and that's okay.

And I see. Yeah. I find people that have violent thoughts about harming children to be sketchy at best tbh... like in any situation, whether or not you think magic is fake, putting so much time, effott, and thought into something so malicious is a bit much when it comes to children.

edit: oop. forgot to say, sometimes other ovcultists are definitely dangerous, and i dont mean cause they'll hex you. see the Order of Nine Angels. they tried to start a war by getting Jihadists toattack a group ofUS soldiers overseas. there's a lot more to them, but underestimating occultists as people that do things better left in the 16th century is itself dangerous because it forgets organizations like the Thule, and their influence on O9A and the Priesthood of Phinneas, both of which /sound/ fake but also definitely murder people. people that think occultists cant be dangerous live in a preciously naive world where demonologist neo-nazis dont exist.

witchcraft definitelt happens, and some of it js linked to human murder (see targeting of albinos in some places in the world), and others are literally harmless tree huggers. whether or notir does anything can be debated. this conversation is more so about intent and justification, not whetber witches are real - which they very much are (and they never stopped being real).
