At one time, witchcraft was considered a Halloween hoot…

Yet it is taken increasingly seriously among people we are expected to listen to:

Writing for, Pam Grossman explains, “Today, more women than ever are choosing the way of the witch, whether literally or symbolically. They’re floating down catwalks and sidewalks in gauzy black clothing and adorning themselves with Pinterest-worthy pentagrams and crystals. They’re filling up movie theaters to watch witchy films and gathering in back rooms and backyards to do rituals, consult tarot cards and set life-altering intentions. They’re marching in the streets with HEX THE PATRIARCHY placards and casting spells each month to try to constrain the commander-in-chief. Year after year, articles keep proclaiming, ‘It’s the Season of the Witch!’ as journalists try to wrap their heads around the mushrooming witch ‘trend.'”

Wait till you catch one of them also fronting the idea that we should all trust science. You can at least enjoy a sense of the ridiculous.

Which side will atheists choose in the war on science? They need to re-evaluate their alliance with progressivism, which is doing science no favours.

    How’s that working out for them? 😎

    (I’m sure it makes them feel like they’re accomplishing something,…)

    I think you mean “Belief in CHRISTIANITY and its version of God are declining”. I hadn’t heard of any falloff in Mohammedism. Ghosts are manifestations of immortal souls in the physical world. When this happens to a Christian, this is a “miracle”.
    Classical witchcraft invoked the same gods they used down at the temple. And of course any local “witch doctor” HAD to be praying to Satan because he didn’t agree to be baptized into YOUR religion.
    Organized religion exists for the purpose of generating MONEY for professional clerics. Kinda like a fortuneteller saying that she has contacted your dead Aunt Sara, and Aunt Sara says to give the fortuneteller an extra 50 bucks.
    There has been a GREAT collapse of membership in the Catholic church, due apparently to the fact that Leftists took over the clergy back in the ’70s. And since then The Church really doesn’t STAND for ANYTHING. It just owns a lot of property and complains about the falloff in cash donations. You can be a Communist, that’s cool. You can be a homosexual (For a man to lie down with another man is an abomination before God…), that’s cool, too. You can support abortion (Who was the last Catholic expelled for supporting abortion? Anybody?) Exactly what moral principles determine whether you’re going to Hell or not? I think it comes down to “didn’t donate enough money”. (Hell doesn’t exist, of course…)
