    Why millennials are ditching religion for witchcraft and astrology

    "So many millennials read their horoscopes every day and believe them,” Layne, who is involved in a number of nonreligious spiritual practices, said.

    Interest in spirituality has been booming in recent years while interest in religion plummets, especially among millennials. The majority of Americans now believe it is not necessary to believe in God to have good morals, a study from Pew Research Center found. The percentage of people between the ages of 18 and 29 who “never doubt existence of God” fell from 81% in 2007 to 67% in 2012.

    Meanwhile, more than half of young adults in the U.S. believe astrology is a science.

    The psychic services industry — which includes astrology, aura reading, mediumship, tarot-card reading and palmistry, among other metaphysical services — grew 2% between 2011 and 2016.

    she has seen a major uptick in interest in the occult in the past five years, especially among New Yorkers in their 20s. The store offers workshops like “Witchcraft 101,” “Astrology 101,” and a “Spirit Seance.

    For a generation that grew up in a world of big industry, environmental destruction, large and oppressive governments, and toxic social structures, all of which seem too big to change, this can be incredibly attractive.

    Millennials are much more open-minded.

    But Layne, whose interest in Eastern medicine is rooted in her Taiwanese heritage, said white women are often able to profit from ancient practices that are not theirs to sell.

    “It is really important to give credit to who is doing the work,” Layne said. “There is a whole culture of white women who capitalize off of spirituality, but it all comes from people of color."

    “It is really important to give credit to who is doing the work,” Layne said. “There is a whole culture of white women who capitalize off of spirituality, but it all comes from people of color."
    Probably talking about voodoo which made great in roads into colored community from the Haitian boat people.

    Whites were introduced to heavy indoctrination into Witchcraft and Wicca in the 70's and 80's. There was a long run of Hollywood movies portraying the joys of white witchcraft and witch TV series similar to the Bewitched series of the 60's that came down the road. Hollywood worked slowly normalizing their wicked concepts to cause our kinfolk to sin.

    As Pastor Pete Peters use to give as an example- "inject a little poison over time and in the end you kill the patient."

    I purchased a book on the study of TV media concepts several years ago and it quoted sources on how in the late 40's through the 50's, TV standards were heavily conservative except for a handful of individual shows. The name of Jesus could be even invoked in a positive way in a many TV shows.

    A court ruling around 1960 change all that. This ruling made it possible for Jewish producers and our seven sons of hell kin to opened the floodgate of poison giving them more freedom in show wicked TV content such as the occult practices. This was and still is the Trojan Horse into every house in America. Now we also have the Android cell phone to deal with.

    Secondly the use of bookstores to influence our people. You may have found a half dozen or so books on the occult in mainline book store in the 70's- early 80's but then it all changed, whole book cases containing hundreds of books of witchcraft and other occult practices are placed conveniently next to to Christian book section. A old friend of mine has overheard a couple times heard several witches discuss spell casting and which are the best spells to cast while he was checking out the Christian section in our local bookstore.

    The article further states:

    Melissa Jayne, owner of Brooklyn-based “metaphysical boutique”.
    These type stores grew out of the old head (weed) shops of the late 80- 90s adding occult material to the incense, pipes and tie dyed clothing. Teenagers at the local Christian high school in my city for example had such a store near there school. They hanged out there after school being exposed to such material. Slew foot is crafty and he knows just how to drawn people in.

    And lets us not forget the "Mighty Morphin Rangers" and "Harry Potter" which have preached to our youth and young adults that wizards, witches and spells are good for our kindred society.

    To sum up- Pete Peters, Jack Mohr, Earl Jones and many other CI leaders warned us about this tide of wickedness in the early 90's. Since then I have known of example of children of CI families that meddled in such occult practices that have picked up familiar spirits and almost had their lives destroyed.

    This is spiritual warfare.
