A group of witches and their sympathizers who were putting a hex on new U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at a Bushwick occult shop drew a group of Christian protesters on Saturday.

The hex was hosted by Catland at 987 Flushing Ave., which sells spiritual literature, healing crystals, tarot cards, incense and similar items.

Outside the storefront, the ritual was guarded by a row of people clad in black bandanas and red pins, the unofficial uniform of the ultra-left antifa group.

The protesters weren’t necessarily demonstrating in favor of Kavanaugh, but were against the use of witchcraft. “Hatred isn’t going to change people,” one protester said. “God changes people.”

Inside, Catland’s co-owner Dakota Bracciale set up three effigies, one each for Donald Trump, Kavanaugh and Mitch McConnell, the Daily Beast reported.

Those who attended the ceremony were also encouraged to speak out against people who had personally abused them in the past. Bracciale and her supporters, in their ceremony, quoted from Psalm 109, which has some of the most severe curses found in the Bible.

All in all, Daily Beast described the scene inside the bookstore as being akin to the fiery emotion of a revivalist meeting, but “with 200 percent more f-bombs.”
