Most religious politicking in the US takes place among the Right wing. But sometimes the Left gets tangled up in religiosity and metaphysics, too. Here’s a recent example:

Code Pink Protesters Try Witchcraft at Anti-Marine Rallies

Code Pink is now resorting to witchcraft to beef up the number of its supporters protesting a controversial Marine Corps Recruiting Center in Berkeley, Calif.The women’s anti-war group has told ralliers to come equipped with spells and pointy hats Friday for “witches, crones and sirens” day, the last of the group’s weeklong homage to Mother’s Day.

“Women are coming to cast spells and do rituals and to impart wisdom to figure out how we’re going to end war,” Zanne Sam Joi of Bay Area Code Pink told

So here we have war protesters — diametrically opposed to the Religious Right™ which usually makes religious appeals in its activism — trying witchcraft in order to end the war. On top of the irrationality and immaturity which underlies protesting a war which the majority of Americans already oppose, after having found they aren’t getting anywhere and becoming desperate over it, these people react by piling on more irrationality and metaphysics.

Folks, this country is plummeting into an abyss of irrationality.
