  • D.C. Area Witches Unite for Gun Control, Hurl Curses at the NRA

    Gun control advocates can now boast of a new group of allies joining their dubious coalition: witches. It kind of makes sense. We all know that gun control is based mainly on magical thinking. Its advocates, after all, ask us to believe we’re just a few more “commonsense safety measures” away from a world in which evil people who are otherwise determined to kill others refrain from doing so for fear they might violate a gun control law somewhere along the way. A related premise is that gun control advocates hold the keys to ending violent behavior once and for...

    Laying out this year’s edition on Monday, Professor Giuseppe Ferrari, who heads the “Group for Socio-Religious Research and Information” which sponsors the annual gathering, went over the history of the course and also what’s new in the 2018 edition. One novelty, Ferrari said, is that for the first time, the course will feature a section on witchcraft in Africa. “We will deal with the theme of the kidnapping and murder of children for ritual sacrifice, linked to witchcraft, in order to obtain favors for clients,” he said, calling it a “cruel and inhuman practice.”
  • ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ is horribly frightening: 1968 review(released 50 years ago, this summer)

    Right to its bitter end, there is no escaping “Rosemary’s Baby.” On film Ira Levin’s best selling novel is as horribly frightening as it was on paper. Few people could put Levin’s book down. By the same token, viewers of the movie at the Criterion and Loew’s Tower East Theatres will find themselves compelled to see it through. It is that tantalizing a shocker. The subject matter is peculiarly repugnant. It is witchcraft, not as practiced in Salem or the like, but as taken seriously in our very own city. The setting is an apartment house modeled after those venerable...
  • New York Times Links Darwin, Dawkins, and Witchcraft Chic

    Times reporter Michelle Goldberg notes the “well-documented resurgence of occultism among millennials.” In investigating this, she visited a “fashionable occult boutique” in Brooklyn, attending a presentation on witchcraft by an individual called Dakota Bracciale: Bracciale, who uses the gender-neutral pronouns they and them, grew up in an evangelical household — somewhere “between ‘Jesus Camp’ and snake handlers” — and said that the new atheism of Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens had a profound effect on their generation. But atheism wasn’t enough, said Bracciale: “It left this huge vacuum, and that vacuum had to be filled with something.” This is a...

    Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope. Dear Lord, please!) Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Answer yes either way and that might make you an alt-leftie. Marketwatch just ran an interesting piece headlined, “Why millennials are ditching religion for witchcraft and astrology.” It didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t know. Young people are embracing the occult faster than you can spell it. This shouldn’t be surprising. They’ve been getting bombarded with witches, spells, demons, vampires and more for decades -- from Harry Potter to Twilight. It only makes sense that they...
  • Many Millennials Are Rejecting Christianity and Turning to Witchcraft and Astrology

    The media has talked quite a bit about the decline of Christianity in America, and not without cause. Between 2007 and 2014, the number of Americans who identified as Christian dropped from 78.4 percent to 70.6 percent. The drop is mainly because mainline Protestant denominations are shedding members at an unsustainable rate, but conservative denominations may be facing new "competitors" for the hearts and souls of millennials. Only 56 percent of millennials identify as Christians (as opposed to 70 percent of Gen X-ers and 78 percent of Baby Boomers). Many of the millennials who are rejecting Christianity are turning...

    When Coco Layne, a Brooklyn-based producer, meets someone new these days, the first question that comes up in conversation isn’t “Where do you live?” or “What do you do?” but “What’s your sign?” Interest in spirituality has been booming in recent years while interest in religion plummets, especially among millennials. The majority of Americans now believe it is not necessary to believe in God to have good morals, a study from Pew Research Center released Wednesday found. The percentage of people between the ages of 18 and 29 who “never doubt existence of God” fell from 81% in 2007 to...

    Hollywood witch Vicky Adams says she has been inundated with people wanting to learn the spell and buy ingredients. Vicky, who runs a renowned occult store in tinseltown, says the spell aims to stop the US President from reaping “harm and destruction” across the globe. She says her shop has been inundated with people desperate to learn the spell and buy the ingredients - which include an orange candle to signify the President’s trademark fake tanned skin. To do the spell, Vicky advises people to get some Tarot cards, an orange candle, an unflattering photo of Trump, some sage and...

    “How much different is it from praying to God that your candidate wins?” asked one attendee. BUSHWICK, BROOKLYN – President Donald Trump has elicited all kinds of protests around the country. On Friday night, a gathering of dissenters in Bushwick created one of the most imaginative – a hexing ceremony. About a dozen people gathered at occult bookstore Catland on Flushing Avenue, near Central Avenue, to put a malevolent spell on the president. The ceremony was simple enough. Catland honcho Dakota Bracciale set up an altar with a skull, some other bones and mason jars filled with crumbled wads of...

    Lana Del Rey has confirmed that she attempted to place a hex on US President Donald Trump. The singer sparked speculation that she was attempting to use witchcraft to get rid of Trump earlier this year, when she asked her Twitter followers to gather mysterious ‘ingredients’. Now, she has confirmed it in a new interview with NME when quizzed about her love of the occult. “Yeah, I did it. Why not? Look, I do a lot of s**t”, she replied. “I’m in line with Yoko [Ono]and John [Lennon] and the belief that there’s a power to the vibration of a...

    Long-time national security expert Lt. Col. Robert “Bob” Maginnis (ret.), a senior fellow with the Family Research Council (FRC), said there is “a lot of witchcraft” and “hedonism” in Washington, D.C., and added that when he thinks of Sodom and Gomorrah he often thinks of the nation’s capital “in the same thought.” Maginnis, who has testified numerous times before Congress and appeared on countless news outlets, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and the Fox News Channel, also said Dupont Circle, infamous for being the “center of homosexuality in Washington,” is home to countless activities that are “pretty souring.” […] Maginnis,...

    Lately, Chavez declared himself a member of a charismatic congregation, thus allegedly belonging to his country's fastest-growing branch of Christianity. But then he angered the country's National Catholic Bishops Conference by communing at a Mass organized by a priest of pro-Communist leanings. Should you have any doubt that Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez is in serious decline, consider this: His bust is being removed from the altars of his country's popular religion, a renowned anthropologist told United Press International on Monday. Less than four years ago, the syncretistic Maria Lionza cult celebrated Chavez as the reincarnation of Simon Bolivar, (1783-1830),...

    MANY YOUNG ADULTS ARE TURNING TO WITCHCRAFT AS A WAY TO REBEL AGAINST THEIR CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN UPBRINGINGS Young adults in America are far less likely to identify themselves as “Christians” than previous generations of Americans, but that does not mean that they have given up on searching for spiritual meaning in their lives. According to Wikipedia, one very popular form of witchcraft known as Wicca has been growing at a rate of more than 100 percent annually in recent years, and this has been happening at a time when Christianity has been in decline in the United States. Of course...

    Christian leader and evangelist Lou Engle called for a three-day fast from March 8 to March 11 to pray for President Donald Trump, stop witchcraft and overturn the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in 1973. Writing in Charisma Magazine on March 6, Engle explained how his plan is based on the "corporate prayer and fasting" of Queen Esther that spared a nation "annihilation" in the Bible. Engle said the need for this prayer and fasting was partly because of the Women's March: Hundreds of thousands of women watched the March, heard the vitriol and could not identify with...

    Witches in the U.S. are offering a solution to those who say Donald Trump is not their president: cast a spell on him. It’s a planned monthly event that began Friday, Feb. 23 at the stroke of midnight Eastern Time. Witches from around the country are casting a mass spell to drive Trump from office. The plan is to continue every night of a waning crescent moon until he is no longer president. Organizers set up a Facebook page, called “A Spell to Bind Donald Trump and All Those Who Abet Him.” The spell is publicized on the Internet...

    Witches are uniting in an effort to cast a spell on President Donald Trump and his administration that would effectively block the “harm” that could be done through his presidency — and it would appear that pop singer Lana Del Rey might be participating in the ritual as well. The Verge reported Friday that the ever mysterious “Video Games” singer, Lana Del Rey, posted to Twitter on Thursday a tweet that suggests that, even if she doesn’t plan to participate herself, she seems to at least condone a midnight ritual being held by witches around the world at midnight (Eastern...

    Those who don't like Donald Trump and the current Republican administration are mobilizing in all sorts of ways. They're speaking up in town halls and calling their representatives. They're organizing protests and demonstrations. And, for the magically-inclined, they're casting spells. Starting at midnight on Friday, witches around the country are calling for a mass spell to be cast on Donald Trump every night of a waning crescent moon until he's driven from office. The spell was publicized by Michael M. Hughes, who told ELLE.com that it was tweaked from multiple spells he saw going around private witchcraft groups. He published...

    With President Donald Trump and the first Lady bringing God and the Lord’s Prayer back into the mainstream, Satanists and self-proclaimed witches are up in arms. Witches around the globe are launching a campaign to cast a ‘binding spell’ on President Trump beginning February 24. The spell is to begin February 24th (Midnight, Friday evening) and to be repeated on every “waning crescent moon,” so roughly once a month. Beyond February 24th, the following dates are given: “March 26th; April 24th; May 23rd; June 21st (especially important as it is the summer solstice); July 21st; August 19th; etc.” Let us...
  • ISIS’ Egypt branch executes 100-year-old cleric

    Saturday, 19 November 2016 Text size A A A Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis – ISIS-affiliated extremist group in Egypt – has released images purporting to show the execution of a 100-year-old man. The group, who rebranded as ISIS-Sinai when they pledged allegiance to the extremist group holding swathes of Iraq and Syria, killed Sheikh Sulaiman Abu Haraz after kidnapping him earlier. Abu Haraz, considered one of the symbolic Sufi clerics and elders of the Sinai Peninsula, was taken by the group from in front of his house in Arish city under gun point. ISIS-Sinai accused the elderly sheikh of “practicing witchcraft”.
