Real Haunted House

Witches Den or Circle

New Orleans, Louisiana

At this old fountain, witchcraft was practiced very regularly. Many dogs and cats were murdered during sacrifices; their howls and meows are still heard today. Also heard are the screams of cries of the murdered and of the virgins that were brutally raped.

Okay, look i just keep reading the same thing over an over again about how whiches are good an this that an everything else, now before you move down an leave a comment all pissy read all of this first. They do have both good whiches an bad whiches. Not all whiches are good they may start out that way but once one realizes how powerful they are or the control they have over things they just want more an one heart break or someone that does something bad can snap a light on in someones head an them knowing they have power an control might take it in a term to make someone pay or something bad to happen. That is a which who has lost control an has lost the reason of her doing as she started out for the greater good. The real whiches will always have control an never use their power for a bad purpose they seek power an control but in a good way to help people an the whole picture where warts an all those images of bad whiches came from in history it was knowen that a which who practiced the evil ways if she messed up on a smell or so a part of her would be disformed i forgot where i read that but its goes along with all the other things that one should know. Anyway everyone just needs to chill out an stop fighting over something that can not be sought out all the way. We need to get back to the real topic which is. Is that place really haunted or did some kid make up hearing that cause they heard stories about it or People just want something to track tourist here or has any of yall went there to find out the truth so that they can share with the rest of us if its something worth seeing or not.

Hey Sweetiepie-
1- the question was answered more than once
2-spell check should become your friend;the word is spelled w-i-t-c-h, NOT which. To end your confusion,…which witch is which? Only 1 H.
and I won’t even bother with “more an one” because whatever you were attempting to babble about is lost on those of us with a brain. Go play in Harry Potterville.

Wild Wiccan- read all the way back, we have talked about where the place is, and that area will always have strange people there who are runaways, the weirdos are either practicing voodoo which is as old as christianity, or santa ria, the latter I will give you as weird. and pettypetty- your name says it all, the bible as we know it, is an interpretation by mortal man which means there is a good chance that they had no frikken clue.

First, God gave us free will; therefore, if a person chooses to be a witch, Wiccan, or Christian, it is their right of choice. Second, the current Old Testament is translated from the Jewâ??s Tanakh. The Tanakh contains the Torah, which is the same as the first five books of the Bible, The Prophets, and the Writings. These three sections make up what we call the Old Testament of Christianity. Third, the first church was comprised of Jews and Gentiles (non-Jews). Fourth, many things are misunderstood, because someone has studied the Bible and translated it, and has given their interpretation of what transpired. For example, the witch of En Dor, whom king Saul went to see, held a séance for the king. The goal of this séance was to bring the Prophet Samuel’s spirit back from Paradise. This she accomplished, but in doing so, she realized king Saul was making the request and feared for her life. The witch or medium of En Dor feared for her life; because Saul had run the mediums and spiritists out of Israel a 2 Samuel 28:3-25. Furthermore, as with all religions, the Christian walk is one of faith. I choose to believe that the Jesus is the Word made flesh and that he dwelt among man. I choose to believe that every word in the Bible is true. However, the interpretation of the Hebrew word Chasaph was translated to mean witch, but in Hebrew it means poisoner. There is often a lot lost in translations; that is why we are told, as Christians, to “Be diligent to present yourself approved of God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing (understanding) the word of truthâ? 2 Timothy 2:15 NKJV. In other words, buy a concordance and study the translated words of the Bible in order to understand its true meaning. Much is lost in translations.
As far as voodoo being as old as Christianity, you are wrong it is older. Christianity began with Christ; voodoo was already being practiced before this time.
On another note, Carina, for you personally, if you ever truly experience the presence of God, you will know without any doubt that God is real and what you thought you knew is nothing. I know that there are many false teachers of Christianity and they use religion as a disguise to receive money from people that are truly seeking God; however, this is present in all religions, not just Christianity. I do believe in the power of prayer. Again, prayer is an act of faith. Please understand that the original scriptures are written in Greek, Hebrew, and Chaldean, which is Father Abrahamâ??s original language. Nevertheless, I understand your point of view about the fact that the men that interpreted the Bible may have gotten it wrong. However, God made provision for that possibility in 2 Timothy 2:15. My question to you is this, why would there be provision in the Bible for the possibility of misinterpretation, if the being that was actually giving the words of biblical scriptures to man was not the Holy Spirit himself? Those of us in Christianity are taught, at some point in during the walk, that the Holy Spirit inspired the Bible. This means that the original biblical texts were not just pulled out of thin air, but the men that wrote the scriptures were guided by the Holy Spirit to do so. Could it be that God being omniscient knew that the true meaning of the words would be lost in translation? Once again, you need to realize that the original biblical texts were not written in English, but Greek, Hebrew, and Chaldean. Keep asking the questions and eventually you will find what you seek.

Great post Doug. Thanks for the insight. You didn’t judge, you just posted the biblical truth.

You can believe what you want, but I have seen what man will do- in the name of their God,There isn’t anything christian in it. I have also seen these same ‘wonderful'(said as sarcastic as possible) purveyors of the word will bend what is written to suit their own mindless desires. These are likely to be same that can’t accept change and fear anything different and will use the bible as a weapon to rid the universe of its presence instead of living as a christian would. Think about it- how many times has religion been used as a tool of hate?

I’ve seen what “people” will do in the name of their “god”. Whether it be God the Father or god the almighty dollar. People will use any excuse to do what they want and get what they want. I don’t need to use God as an excuse or to blame Him for whatever I may do. I choose to do the things I do. I must say I agree with you, Carina. Religion has been and will continue to be used as a tool of/for hate. However, “true” religion is one of love and forgiveness. Sadly we don’t see enough of either of these anymore.

Hi my name is Jade But my witch name is Rosemary, me and 3 other people I no are serious about wanting to become a good witch we’ve tried everything but we haven’t become wiccas yet, we’ve tried a spell that was the only one that came true I want to know how I can become a GOOD witch, oh and I think i’m being haunted or followed by a witch or witches. It all started wen I was young first came Halloween and I dressed up as a witch, then I woke up one nite and saw two withes with a coldren NOT A DREAM! and so I ran into my mums bed and they ran after me but wen I jumped in I looked back and they were gone and ever since I hav been sleeping in my mums bed because it’s like a barrier nothing can get me! And now EVERY HALLOWEEN I my sister and I see BLACK CATS! one time 1 was following us and we looked back and it was gone! and not too long ago my sister and my dads partners daughter wanted me to sleep out in the loungeroom with them so I did and all of a sudden I woke up a saw a witch glaring at me about 5 or 6 metres away from me then I heard a meow and I looked back and I saw a glimpse of a cat. I didn’t sleep that whole night and was sweating like mad but i didnt want to move. that morning I told the girls and my dad but none of them believed me, it’s so frustrating to not have anyone believe you. Aam I crazy or not?

Poor animals. However, I do have one question: is this fountain visited a lot? If it was, you’d think somebody would stop the witches.

All of you all are whacked in the head. This place is very real. It’s where the witches, God, and I go to make cat/dog soup. You only hear them barking and meowing until the water starts boiling and then that usually shuts them up. As far as the virgins being raped, somebody is mistaken. They probably heard “oh” “oh” and thought it was “no” “no”. But I assure you the sex is consentual.

Fear of witches and the Wiccan religion is deeply rooted in cultural stereotypes. The fear comes from misunderstandings of what deities witches worship, and the nature of spells witches cast.

Witches do not worship the devil since they do not believe that a devil exists. Witches do occasionally cast spells, but most true Wiccans who follow the Creed of “do what ye will, yet harm ye none,” will not cast any spells that cause harm or interfere with another person’s free will.

Sacrifice is another thing that is often thought of as part of the religion. However witches and most other pagans do not practice it. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve been asked if I sacrifice small animals or babies.I don’t know of a single witch or pagan who practices any type of sacrifice.

Don’t be ignorant, research before you judge!

My husband & I visited New Orleans back in February. We happened to be there during Mardi Gras; it was AWESOME. We were there for 3 nights, stayed at the Hotel le Cirque. Lovely place, New Orleans, the hotel. We NEVER heard of this “fountain” and we asked about any & all haunted or scary places in N.O. Things get made up to spark interest and cause “drama” which is clearly what it has done here.

There’s so many other haunted houses around here. LaLaurie Mansion should be at the top. Or that old Catholic school on the north shore. St. Phillips Infant Asylm (currently a hotel).
