Papua, New Guinea witches

I think we need a bit more information first. If it was one of the nose twitching witches, then that's a bit harsh. But, if they had flying monkeys, well you don't want to go messing with those.

Who are we to go tell them how to run their society? The only objection I would have if someone decided to house some people next door to me and they started to burn witches. But thats racism to say anything against multiculturalism. So why are you then objecting to Papuans multicultural habits? You racist?
