    1) The Proctors, the Nurses, and the Coreys are the only families I can think of off the top of my head who didn't like Parris.

    2) John Proctor doesn't like Parris, so he stopped attending. The fact that he committed adultery with Abigail says he wasn't too keen on all the Bible's points in the first place.

    3) The Putnams had lost seven children before Ruth was born, and they can't think of any other reason why they would have lost so many.

    4) Elizabeth has a very good reputation in Salem, and has a reputation for truthfulness (see third act).

    5) Ironically, he can't remember "Thou shalt not commit adultery," which was the one he broke.
