(CNSNews.com) -- Witches plan to place a public hex on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh through an occult ritual on Oct. 20 in New York City, an event sponsored by Catland Books, which describes itself as "Brooklyn's premiere occult bookshop & spiritual community space." The planned ritual has been advertised on Facebook.
"Please join us for a public hex on Brett Kavanaugh, upon all rapists and the patriarchy at large which emboldens, rewards and protects them," reads the description for the event, "Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh."
"We are embracing witchcraft's true roots as the magik of the poor, the downtrodden and disenfranchised and it's history as often the only weapon, the only means of exacting justice available to those of us who have been wronged by men just like him," reads the description.
"He will be the focal point, but by no means the only target, so bring your rage and all of the axes you've got to grind," states Catland.
"There will also be a second ritual afterward -- "The Rites of the Scorned One" -- which seeks to validate, affirm, uphold and support those of us who have been wronged and who refuse to be silent any longer," reads the description.
It further states that 50% of the event proceeds will go to charity: 25% to the Ali Forney Center and 25% to Planned Parenthood.
The Ali Forney Center is a homeless shelter and help center for LGBTQ youth. Planned Parenthood is America's largest abortion provider. It received $543.7 million in taxpayer funding for the year ending June 30, 2017, reads its latest annual report.
Tickets cost $10.00.
As this story was posted, the Facebook page for the ritual hex said that 931 people would be attending and that 10,000 were "interested" in attending.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, to hex, as a verb, means to "cast a spell on; bewitch." As a noun, hex means "a magic spell; a curse."
Some of the other events occuring at Catland Books this month include "Demonology," "Magic Spells with the Tarot," "Witchcraft 101," and an "All Hallows Seance."
In its "About," section online, Catland says that it aims "to serve the local community of Occultists, Yogis, Pagans, Mystics, Thelemites, Witches, Chaotes, and anyone interested in the enhancement of their spiritual self."
