Sinnerstar is absolutely right. Scrying mirrors are not bad, and anyone who tells you that they are is uneducated and wrong. Scrying is a form of divination, and there are certain well known patriarchal religions in the world today that want people to believe that anyone using a form of divination is a devil worshipper. They’re very wrong. A scrying mirror is a tool, simple as that.
