Maybe witches always knew something we didn’t.
They were certainly ahead of the all black everything trend.
And, tbh, at the core of the criticism of the Salem witch trials was the idea that religious rebellion should be free from government persecution.
Right-wing pastor and ardent Donald Trump supporter Lance Wallnau posted a video on his Facebook page last night in which he declared that the Women’s March on Washington and the protests surrounding Trump’s inauguration were a spiritual manifestation of witchcraft and “the spirit of Jezebel.”Echoing Rick Joyner, Wallnau said that the march and protests were “the unmasking of the nature of the progressive spirit” and “its desire to control and intimidate and manipulate.”
It’s nice to see the nut jobs come into full view. The
right-winger alt-right neo-nazi crazies have been emboldened to come out and express their particular delusions. I say, YES! Bring them into the light so all can see them for what they are.
As we face down the inauguration of president-elect Donald Trump — whose administration has promised to assault civil and reproductive rights in America so intensely that Human Rights Watch has listed his rhetoric as a threat to “basic rights protections” — now is an important time to reflect on the strength of the many women, men, and non-binary champions in our society who have managed to navigate (indeed, even overcome) assaults on their sexuality, self-governance, and cultural practices with aplomb. In short: there is a tremendous amount we can learn right now from our country’s communities of witches.
