One is that Abigail presents herself as an innocent child who has been victimized by witches in the community, when in reality she is the one doing the victimizing.

What is also ironic is that despite religion pervading the every day lives of Salem, religion fails to provide an emotional outlet for the individuals and the community such as rage, vengeance and overcoming difficulties that may arise such as Abigail lust for John Proctor. Rather religion seems as though its a deception to hold authority against the general public. Like Judge Danforth where he constantly reiterates his social status and position within society, "do you know who I am?"
