On October 31, 2000, ABCNEWS.com published an article entitled "Right to Practice Witchcraft: Louisiana Town Trying to Silence Witches", in which they reported that "Houma residents fear Wiccans are bringing dangerous, anti-Christian spirits into the community and are resurrecting an old parish ban on fortunetelling. The witches believe that through rituals, their gods and goddesses will help direct their futures." The ACLU has become involved to ensure free speech rights are protected.
