A spiritual battle for the soul of the newly confirmed U. S . Supreme Court Justice , Brett Kavanaugh , took the centre stage on Saturday as a coven of New York witches placed a curse on Kavanaugh .In reaction , some leaders of America ’ s Catholic Church have countered the curse by “ standing in the gap ” for Kavanaugh , whom the church celebrates as “ pro -life and anti – abortion . ”
Dozens of witchcraft fans and curious minds attended the event at Brooklyn’ s Catland Books , while the event was also streamed online for effective viewership .
The American Senate had voted 50 – 48 on Saturday , October 6 , to confirm President Donald Trump ’ s nominee , Brett Kavanaugh , to the Supreme Court .
Kavanaugh ’ s nomination appeared to be in jeopardy for weeks , after multiple women came forward to publicly accuse him of sexual misconduct in high school and college . Kavanaugh denied the allegations in statements and testimony .
After several tumultuous weeks of uncertainty , Judge Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court, effectively becoming American Supreme Court’ s most embattled justice in decades .
Pro – abortion groups had loudly denounced Kavanaugh as a “ serious threat to women ’ s right” to abortion , fearing he will protect the life of unborn babies in his rulings .
Dakota Bracciale , co -owner of Catland Books and one of the organisers of the cursing event , said they would not share details or specifics of “ the spells , ” but told the BBC that the curse was “ aimed at exposing Brett Kavanaugh for what he truly is , to cause him harm and see him undone . ”
The Catland Books is a metaphysical boutique and occult bookshop in Brooklyn , New York , and they titled the event , “ The Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh ;” while also targeting some other “ enemies . ”
The event held for three hours , starting at 7 p . m . , with the organisers swearing down that “ all rapists and the patriarchy which emboldens , rewards and protects them ” will be cursed.
While the organisers were unable to state , categorically , when the curses would effectively take effect on their object, they expressed confidence that it would be “ as soon as possible ;” adding : “ There’ s not a firm timeline on these things . ”
Tickets to the event quickly sold out , with the organisers saying that half of the proceeds would be donated to charities , including the women ’ s health group , Planned Parenthood .
But Catholics and exorcists are not backing down , as they have responded to the news , “ fire for fire . ”
A Catholic priest and exorcist for the Diocese of San Jose , California , Father Gary Thomas , opted to counter the spell by saying prayers for the justice at Mass.
“ This is a conjuring of evil — not about free speech , ” Father Thomas told the, National Catholic Register .
While the event gathered momentum earlier last week , Father Thomas offered Mass for Kavanaugh on Thursday and also on Saturday , the D- Day.
His training in Rome was the subject of the 2010 book , The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist , that was made into a movie in 2011 .
In the 12 years since becoming an exorcist , Father Thomas said that he had witnessed people in the satanic world becoming bolder.
“ They are more confident that the general public will be more accepting of the demonic , ” he lamented.
By contrast, Father Thomas noted that throughout history , satanic groups have been secretive , but now they are making it public in the name of freedom of religion .
“ This is a conjuring of evil — not about free speech , ” he said . “ Conjuring up personified evil does not fall under free speech . Satanic cults often commit crimes ; they murder and sexually abuse everyone in their cult , ” he warned .
Father Thomas said that those involved in the curse on Kavanaugh clearly believe in the power of personified evil . “ They are going to direct the evil to have a permanently adverse effect on the Supreme Court justice . ”
He , however , gave Kavanaugh hope , noting , “ When curses are directed at people in a state of grace , they have little or no effect . ”
Except for grace , the Catholic priest warns , “ harm could come upon people such as physical illness, psychosis , depression and having demons attach to them when cursed” .
He explained that curses sometimes involve a blood sacrifice , either through an animal or a human being , such as an aborted baby .
“ The decision to do this against a Supreme Court justice is a heinous act and says a lot about the character of these people that should not be underestimated or dismissed , ” Father Thomas warns . “ These are real evil people . ”
A manager at a Catholic apostolate was also inspired to fast and pray the Rosary for three days and to give alms to counter the witches ’ intention .
She asks that “ God will have mercy on those involved , that He will give everyone the grace of faith and repentance , and that He will grant spiritual protection to Brett Kavanaugh . ”
The unnamed church manager said they were giving alms because , “ St . Augustine said that fasting and alms -giving are the wings with which our prayers fly safely and are more easily carried to Heaven , where Christ our Peace has preceded us . ’”
