Well yes, Witches were considered out of the ordinary due to their alchemist skills (Brewing potions) and since the potions (Which would translate into medication for this time period) had the effect of accelerated healing and pain numbing that no-one was used to, it was considered witchcraft. Simply because they done something the common person didn't understand, and people were para as fuck, they were rejected.

Similar to punks etc now-a-days. They dress differently and listen to a different type of music, so certain parts of society frown upon them and label them as a bad influence.

well, i think that that's a different phenomenon. punk, metal, pop, etc. all of the music and styles that go with them are disliked due to taste. witches were disliked due to religion. witches were burned, punks are shunned.

Witches must vary in different cultures then. Scottish witches weren't known for religion (I think the statistics were only about 10% being devil worshippers), but because of their supposed acts of witchcraft that consisted of alchemy or just being out of the ordinary.

As for the punks I don't really know where I was going with that, I just remembered a post on this with a punk playing with a kid, the description was something to do with them not being bad influences. pic related (I think this was it)

people love to stereotype. the "witches" acts of "magic" were often helpful, like medicine, but "witches" were also the first European group to make explosives. there was reason to be afraid. on the same note, punk culture certainly has some upstanding members of society who happen to have an odd taste in music, company and clothing, but many punks are actually just violent thugs who want an excuse to be violent. so, people pick out the loudest group, just like how everyone thinks of the westboro baptist church or the evangelists when thinking of Christians, or the Taliban when thinking of Islam. all of these groups have a large number of good people, with a few people who are truly scum.
