It appears that self-identifying witches are turning to pagan spells and rituals on the Internet in order to process grief, anger, and trauma over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after he was accused of sexual assault in an alleged incident more than 35 years ago, Vox reported.
Given that Kavanaugh — who denied Ford’s allegations — was confirmed to the high court, the outlet said such rituals have become a form of self-care.
Facebook group the Magic Resistance noted to Vox that it performed a “Bind Kavanaugh” spell Saturday before the Senate voted to confirm the judge.
Michael M. Hughes — the founder of Magic Resistance and author of “Magic for the Resistance: Rituals and Spells for Change” — told the outlet he sees Kavanaugh as the “epitome of every entitled … guy who never faced the consequences of his actions.”
