SAN DIEGO (ChurchMilitant.com) - Witches publicly cursing the president are becoming a common topic in mainstream media with little public outcry.
This time, witches gathered on Saturday in San Diego's Balboa Park to cast a spell on President Donald Trump. Their goal is to see him impeached. They marched in various costumes, including the stereotypical witch costume complete with brooms and witches' hats, chanting, "Trump is a fool, Trump is a clown, we are here to shut him down."
One participant held up a sign that read, "I hex D.T. to protect America."
The event was organized by Ground Zero Players and required participants to attend a rehearsal or "witch curtain call."
The event was reminiscent of the earlier gathering of witches on February 24, who attempted to cast a spell on President Trump. That event is set to be perpetually repeated at "midnight on every waning crescent moon until he is removed from office."
Another example of public occult practice is the 40 Days to Keep Abortion Legal campaign, started by self-proclaimed feminists attempting to counteract the pro-life 40 Days for Life. According to the website, "For 40 days, I am inviting pagans of all paths to engage in whatever spellwork, ritual or spiritual work they choose with a focus on keeping abortion and reproductive health care safe and legal for all."
There seems to be little alarm by the general public over these incidents. In an age when every superhero, musician or TV star seems to claim preternatural powers, the demonic is given free reign to act without restraint or public outcry.
The occult is so saturating the media industry, from videogames to movies, that it seems almost commonplace. Books like the Harry Potter series either glamorize the topic of the occult or make it seem harmless. Catholics, however, are quite aware that the actual driving force behind the occult is the demonic.
