MUSCAT — The Royal Oman Police (ROP) has warned members of the public against resorting to sorcerers to resolve any problems they might be facing. The ROP pointed out that sorcerers are swindlers and that sorcery is considered a crime punishable by law. The ROP is cautioning all citizens and residents against sorcery which, the ROP said, is alien to the Omani society.

Members of the public are reminded that the main objective of sorcerers is to increase their wealth by making people believe that they can invoke supernatural power. When arrested, sorcerers are usually found in possession of a number of books, frankincense, herbs, candles and solutions used in the illicit operations.

A warning against sorcerers. The references to the ROP in the article are amusing, because it is the Royal Omani Police.

Whew! Who knows what would have happened if not for that warning? I was just about to consult a sorcerer, but now I know better, the Great Cat be thanked!

I suppose they want a ban on magic wands with more than 10 charges, universal background checks on crystal balls, and registration of all flying carpets. Then they’ll have magic lamp buybacks.....

Fortunately Oman is not as extreme with their Islam as other Muslim states. They are different sect from your Wahabis in Saudi Arabia.

Sorcerers at least keep their heads for a few minutes

That’s just great. Now what is my source for voodoo dolls? My enemies must suffer and feel pain. Who will intone the secret incantations?

Interesting thought, use a sorcerer. Maybe one could take the place of a lawyer.

Or, smite-ing prayers, you know, those old testament ones.

In Boston, my husband and I got a baby sitter and were on a date and we walked past a palm reader and he dared me to go in for a ‘reading.” We were in Havard, an area swarming with college kids. We were careful to give her no corrective clues and let her go on her own. She assumed I was a college student and my husband was a dad. That was hillarous.

The sorcerer, even if an absolute fraud, should not be compared to a lawyer. That is sinking sorcery too low.
