Report: Witches Now Outnumber Presbyterians In The United States

While President Donald Trump repeatedly denounces the “witch hunt” in Washington, it may becoming more and more easy to find them.  According to a report from the Christian Post,  the number of witches and wiccans has increased dramatically since the 1990s.  Indeed, the figures is taken from studies from a Trinity College and the Pew Research Cente that found that there are at least 1.5 million witches in the United States,.  That would put them 100,000 over the 1.4 million mainline Presbyterians in the country.

The Pew Research Center reported in 2014 that 0.4% of the population — 1 to 1.5 million Americans — “identify as Wicca or Pagan.”

Most of these Americans view themselves as pre-Christian in their faith with a close connection to the Earth and natural forces.

In other words, Trump is right . . . at least about the witches.  Indeed, the Los Angeles Times ran a commentary on May 23, 2017, in which witch Diana Wagman announced that she and “thousands of witches, believers . . .  over the world” had cast a binding spell on President Donald Trump “under the waning crescent moon” in April last year.  It is not clear if Robert Mueller is currently waning or waxing . . . or subpoenaing.

    The People of the CIA … Lawrence K. “Red” White: The Father of Integrated Support
    The men and women of the Central Intelligence Agency would not be able to meet their mission without the help of integrated support. In the early days, each branch of the CIA had its own support team. Today’s one large team—the Directorate of Support—provides everything from security to medical care to logistics. CIA careerist Lawrence White was a champion of the integrated support effort in its early days and became known as the Father of Integrated Support.

    Humble Beginnings
    White was born in Tennessee on June 10, 1912. His father was a Presbyterian minister who made a modest living. From a young age, White was a hard worker and often took odd jobs to earn money.

    In 1929, White graduated from Troy High School. He knew that he wanted to go to college, but his family could not afford it. With the United States Military Academy at West Point in mind, White approached Congressman Jerry Cooper to help him gain admission. But persuasive and deserving, White reported to West Point on July 1, 1929.

    Serving the Country at War
    After graduating in 1933, White was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army…

    I could give a dissertation on how Presbyterians doctrine related to the cultural development of America particularly in commerce and finance but who cares huh? I have bored too many people with this story before, nobody cares too much, witches are more sexy, usury is a lost concept, boring by comparison, etc. let America gorge itself on its own decadence now, it doesn’t remember its past and in a strange way thus does it honor its own self as a supremely ahistorical and ungrounded idea for a “nation”

    1. “I could give a dissertation on how Presbyterians doctrine related to the cultural development of America”

      Please don’t.

      1. it gets into differences between calvinism and lutheranism, anglosaxon culture versus continental, stuff like that. most folks find that very boring stuff, i realize, even if I dont

        1. it does however relate to my project here of calling on Americans to think not only as individuals but also groups; not to be blinded by liberal ideologies but to recognize that religious cultural differences have an impact on social trends; and that in the zealous spirit of Presbyterian fanatics like Jonathan Edwards, or before him, Regicides like Cromwell, we have some antecedents that were made of very stern stuff, capable of strong action, and we can channel their spirits to do the things that must be done to survive and thrive.

          Trust me if early America was made up of witches wasting time on spookery instead of hard headed determined Scotsmen then our ancestors would never have conquered this continent. I suppose the witches of today would be ok with that, probably think that’s the patriarchy and racism and all that crud. Dreck! We are where we are not just because our ancestors had technology or science or moral slogans, but because they had will and clear minded intention to do what was necessary under the circumstances

          I would point out also that Donald J Trump is a Presbyterian

  2. if you had a good idea of how Scots ancestry Presbyterians were important to the United States, this would be a sad statement.

    but, Presbyterians themselves deserve the first point of blame for their decline due to their long decades of lassitude and ambiguity and betrayal of the interests of their own people…. another American institution that betrayed its own folk and lost significance long ago
