There’s an article going around the net written by the preposterous World Net Daily about Witchcraft in America and it’s sudden popularity. I suppose they’re wondering why people are leaving the church in droves and must continue to fervently condemn anyone with different beliefs.
Worldnutdaily: The Witches are Coming!
“Real ones. And they’re going to turn you into a newt (hopefully not of the Gingrich variety). Yes, this is the latest Worldnutdaily “exclusive” published in their “elite” Whistleblower magazine. They’re calling it a “dramatic, entertaining, but powerfully eye-opening and mind-boggling investigation.” Or a big steaming pile of bullshit; take your pick.
When the day’s news is about “witches,” many Americans reflexively conjure up images of ugly, wicked hags from stories like “Snow White” and “The Wizard of Oz” – or more recently, the smiling “good witches” of Harry Potter books and films. But none of these fictional fantasies has anything to do with the real thing. The real thing – that is, the stunning phenomenon of more and more American housewives, students, professors, and even soldiers self-identifying as “witches” – is the topic of the January edition of WND’s elite monthly Whistleblower magazine.”
