The Battle of Silly Superstitions

I find this battle between “witches” seeking to “bind” Trump from doing bad things with their “spells” and the furious reaction from the Christian right to be endlessly amusing. The Worldnetdaily reacts with joy that a ritual got rained out at Trump Tower the other day.

Witches, Satanists and occultists boasted of meeting Sunday at midnight under the crescent moon in front of Trump Tower, a second time, to partake in a “mass ritual” of casting a “binding spell” on President Donald Trump.

But nature took its course with a rainstorm that, well, you might say “dampened their spirits.”

In short, they were rained out…

The idea was that they would gather at the crescent moon in front of Trump Tower with an unflattering photo of the president, a tarot card, an orange candle, a small nail and an ashtray to call on the powers of dark magic to banish Trump and his agenda from office.

And they’re right, some of what these “witches” were doing was just spectacularly dumb:

Oh yeah, that’ll do it. Carve his name in a carrot and he’ll be unable to perform his evil works! My eyes couldn’t roll any further if they were thrown by Roger Clemens. But that’s just a prelude to the wingnuts being equally stupid:

But WND previously reported, when such events were discussed, Christian leaders said these kinds of spiritual threats should be taken seriously, condemned and countered.

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries said the left’s open embrace of demonic imagery is revealing.

“It shows that the level of hatred against Donald Trump is generated by Satan himself,” she said. “Donald Trump is not a perfect man. But he is trying to stop the runaway freight train of evil that has existed for eight years emanating out of Washington and the Democratic Party.

“The left is mesmerized by issues that tear down and that grieve the heart of God. Donald Trump doesn’t have the power to neutralize these people and their agenda, but he is trying to make significant inroads to stop the tremendous slide to the dark side in America. He has some solid Bible-believing Christians at his side. Together they can make a huge difference and repair some of the damage done by evildoers.”…

Pastors such as Carl Gallups, author of “When the Lion Roars,” urge Christians to join the effort.

“America’s born again believers should cover President Trump in prayer,” Gallups said. “It’s obvious that the demonic realm is stirred by his presence. It’s also obvious that the antichrist agenda of the globalist community is going berserk over a Trump presidency. These are simply signs to those of us who know God’s word that President Trump is being used by the Lord in these prophetic times. Pray for him. Pray for our nation. And, then, get on with the work of the Kingdom.”

Here’s what I hear:

“I’m gonna throw salt over my shoulder for good luck.”

“Well then I’m gonna sacrifice a chicken to cancel out that good luck.”

There is no “witchcraft,” there are just ridiculous people muttering empty words to the sky. And they’re being countered by Christians praying, which is also muttering empty words to the sky.
