Rise Of The Witch

Once consigned to the realms of bigotry, superstition, fable and myth, witches have been making a comeback and now outnumber Presbyterians in the US.

According to the Pew Research Center, 1.5 million Americans identified with pagan and Wiccan witch cults. By contrast, mainline Presbyterianism (PCUSA) trailed behind the occultists at 1.4 million members. 

America's rapidly growing witch cult was galvanized into action by the election of Donald Trump in 2016 and lost no time in setting up the Magic Resistance. The Magic Resistance organizes regular rituals to curse Trump and his supporters, and "bind" the President. 

But the spells go further than "binding." One, used against Justice Kavanaugh, reads, "The king is dead, hear us scream, tear off his head, burn his bones, salt the earth, rage is our song, rage is our mother." And sample rituals pray to demons.

Hear me, oh spirits
Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air
Heavenly hosts
Demons of the infernal realms
And spirits of the ancestors

Well sure, it's all a fun-and-games, raise the Pentagon stunt like the Temple of Satan itself. But pause for a moment and ask yourself why America's rapidly growing witch cult almost uniformly sides with the Democrats. 

The same Party, you may recall, who wrote off Podesta's part in Marina Abramovic's hellish Spirit Cooking (performance art?) as a big so what.

Reflect on that and the fact of these people invoking demons and casting spells. Such is the company of the DNC, to say nothing of Molloch's child sacrifice industry star, Planned Parenthood. Christians might want to think twice about siding with that.

In the meanwhile, it's all a larf until the, ahem, higher power you've invoked comes alive and you wake up with a demon gnawing on your elbow. Or you're in a wicker cage and it's on fire.

The number of Presbyterians, Episcopalians and clergy in the CofE who identify as witches is currently unknown. As we await stats, the battle lines between good and evil become more sharply drawn.

I appreciate that last line in particular, Parson.
Scary times, but necessary, too.

You didn't mention the Burning Man Pageant in Nevada, where witches meet the unwary. Hillary needs to go there and preside to make it even more meaningful. Naked people worshiping Gia, lesbian liturgical dancing, and a burning wicker man there in the wilds of the Black Rock Desert...all they're missing is Archbishop Welby to give a sermon on the genderless god, right after he has a shot of 'spirit essence'.

I remember when I was a teenager and my brother's first wife and I got a ouija board for fun. The fun lasted about 15 minutes and we looked at each other and decided it was a very bad idea to "play" with a ouija board. Nothing has come along in almost 60 years to change my mind. You don't mess with the evils. Never!

There's a bunch of pagans in Spokane - which is also home to Gonzaga Uni which has just blocked Ben Shapiro from speaking there. My post tomorrow will not be kind to the former Catholic Jesuits over there who subvert young minds.

Things like this give one pause for thought. For those that don't believe in God, beware of what you do believe in.

Fredd said...

Not to worry, Reverend. This witch thing is just a passing fad, and once the liberals elect their chosen socialist to inhabit the Oval Office, local covens will be shuttered left and right. You'll see.

LSP said...

Linda, we're in a fight against evil. Victory's assured but in the meanwhile, tough sledding.

LSP said...

LL, we need to go to Burning Man, on QUAD COPTERS.

LSP said...

Adrienne, I don't know why demons would work through a 19thC parlor trick but apparently they do. The witches might be in for a nasty surprise.

Then there's the Jesuits. How many of them are in the magic resistance?

LSP said...

Excellent point, drjim. You're channeling Chesterton!

LSP said...

I hope you're right Fredd, but thèn we'll have to contend with infernal power in the White House. Will it be a witch? Maybe Hillary's too old and sick for 2020.
