A Catholic exorcist said he plans to hold a mass for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh next weekend after a group of witches announced their plans to gather in Brooklyn to publicly hex him.
“Conjuring up personified evil does not fall under free speech,” Father Gary Thomas, who serves as an exorcist for the Diocese of San Jose, Calif., told The National Catholic Register.
A wider group of Catholics and exorcists also plan to pray and fast for “the protection” of Kavanaugh, who is Catholic.
A manager at a Catholic apostolate told the Register he was “inspired” to pray for the newly-appointed justice to grant him “spiritual protection” and also hopes God will shed “mercy” on those involved in the coordinated effort to hex Kavanaugh.
The report arrives just days after a group of self-identified witches captured national headlines for announcing their plans to publicly hex the justice.
The event, which is being held at occult bookstore Catland Books, will target “all rapists,” according to the event’s Eventbrite page.
“We will be embracing witchcraft’s true roots as the magik of the poor, the downtrodden and disenfranchised and [its] history as often the only weapon, the only means of exacting justice available to those of us who have been wronged by men just like him,” the event read.
“[Kavanaugh] will be the focal point, but by no means the only target, so bring your rage and all of the axes you’ve got to grind. There will also be a second ritual afterward — ‘The Rites of the Scorned One’ which seeks to validate, affirm, uphold and support those of us who have been wronged and who refuse to be silent any longer.”
Organizer Dakota Bracciale told Time magazine that the effort to hex Kavanaugh is an “act of resistance,” coming weeks after the judge was accused of sexual assault. (Click to Source)
