Christian Nutjob Alert-Witchcraft Crisis

The following is from here. My commentary is in green.

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. WND never suprises me with their idiocy Titled "WITCHCRAFT IN AMERICA," Whistleblower explores Wicca in particular, and the New Age movement in general, in this dramatic, entertaining, but powerfully eye-opening and mind-boggling investigation. What's mind-boggling is that this is being investigated by something called "whistleblower" (blowing hot air is more likely) What is witchcraft? Is it the same as Wicca? Is it a form of Satan worship, as critics allege? They can never give up on the Satan worship idea Or can witches be good? no, no one can be good without Jesus, we all know that! Can they really cast spells that somehow call forth the spirits beyond the world of nature to help them accomplish their will – whether good or evil? Yes, all those invisible magic beings are at their command! Is magic real? As real as angels, demons and resurrected god-men, which means not very real at all Why do witches often perform their ceremonies naked? Sex maniacs? And most of all, why do so many people today aspire to be witches? So they can read funny blog posts like this one maybe? Wicca is an official, legal religion in the U.S., How horrible that anyone has the same first amendment rights as the Jesus freaks! and a fast-growing one at that. Judges have ruled that witches must be allowed to lead prayers at local government meetings, and that Wiccan convicts must be provided with requested "sacred objects" so they can perform spells in their cells. Witches in the armed services have even formed covens and routinely "worship" on U.S. military bases. How dare anyone worship anything but Biblegod!
