Witches of the world are uniting against the President of the United States, and it might just spark off a war of spells vs. prayers.
A document has been circulating around the internet recently, detailing a "A Spell to Bind Donald Trump and All Those Who Abet Him (version 2.0)." Presumably, version 1.0 was unsuccessful, but witches are nothing if not resilient.
While the instructions don't give a clear idea of what the spell is supposed to do or what 'binding' Trump will accomplish, it is very inclusive.
"This binding spell is open source, and may be modified to fit your preferred spiritual practice or magical system," the description reads.
The spell is scheduled to be cast on Friday, Feb. 24 at midnight, and is counting on "the mass energy of participants" nationwide to be effective.
In addition to some incantations, the spell involves "an unflattering picture of trump (small)," a "tiny stub of an orange candle," and an "ashtray or dish of sand."

If that sounds like your thing, it's gonna be a good time.
However, the witches will have some competition.
ChristianNationalism.com, which represents a cross section of ideologies, got wind of the plot, and they've issued a call for a sort of counter-spell of their own: mass prayer.

While their prayer plan doesn't include even a single candle, the site beseeches "all Christian soldiers to answer this call to action by reading from Psalm 23" at the same time as the opposing group casts their spells.
This celestial event pairs well with a viewing of The Craft, a glass of mulled wine and a grain of salt.
