How are Orc Warlocks treated?

Moon Guard
In Garrosh's Horde, we have seen massive numbers of Warlocks, at least from an Alliance perspective. Most notably is Gar'tul (Or whatever his name is.), who apparently leads the Horde fleet in the southern Jade Forest.

This has provoked a question: How are Orc Warlocks treated in Garrosh's Horde? I personally thought Garrosh hated Warlocks, but it seems that he LOVES them now, what with all Warlocks running around, when they're supposed to be all hidden and shunned.
I can't imagine they're widely respected in cities, but now I think they'd at the very least be tolerated, especially by the younger generation of orcs. I'd imagine the older generation that had been through demonic corruption would openly shun them, though.
Warlocks are fully accepted by the orcish military, and in several cases, such as the general in Jade Forest and Orux Thrice-Damned, even command troops.
Heck, a Forsaken Warlock was the commander of the detachment of Forsaken troops that joined up with the orcs in Jade Forest. Warlocks are everywhere in command positions these days apparently.

I blame Wilfred Fizzlebang back in the Trial of the Crusader raid. If it wasn't for him and his mishap with the Eredar Lord of the Trifling Gnomes, Varian and Garrosh wouldn't realize their awesome potential power and try to stick them everywhere they could in their militaries (even moreso with Garrosh).
We are the Horde.
It is to my understanding that Garrosh sees all Warlocks as powerful assets to be used against their enemies.

Which is exactly what he was against in Ashenvale, but heeeey.

All kind of politicians seem to be flip flopping these days. Virtual or otherwise.
I wouldn't really say Garrosh is a politician.
No, not all kinds. The ones that do generally fall into the category of warmongers and/or beings of questionable intelligence.

No, not really. That's a common misconception regarding the Draaka quest chain. Garrosh was admittedly leery of warlocks (at the time) but what really blew his stack was that he was deus-ex'd into magically knowing that one of his officers was being manipulated by a free-willed demon.

If Garrosh really just hated fel corruption so much that he'd be willing to put bounties on the heads of anyone who involved themselves with the stuff, he wouldn't have had Orux Thrice-Cursed leading a Horde army in the exact same zone.

Meditate on this.

Better to have the bad guy inside your tent then outside throwing rocks.
