Catholics and exorcists are responding to the news that a curse on the newest U.S. Supreme Court Justice is planned for Saturday Oct. 20 at Catland Books, a “metaphysical boutique and occult bookshop” in Brooklyn, New York. He will be the main focus, at the “Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh” but others will also be targeted. For three hours, starting at 7 p.m., “all rapists and the patriarchy which emboldens, rewards and protects them” will be cursed.
This is not the first cursing event for Catland Books. Last year, the bookstore hosted three hexes on President Donald Trump.

His training in Rome was the subject of the 2010 book The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist that was made into a movie in 2011. Continue reading
