According to The Daily Caller there is an increase in self-identified practitioners of witchcraft across the US. It has outnumbered the Presbyterian Christians in the country and all this (according to The DC) is because of Millennials´ New Age spirituality.
¨ The declining congregation of the U.S. Presbyterian Church has, as of 2017, fallen below the rapidly growing number of people in the U.S. who practice some form of New Age spirituality, which includes neo-Paganism, Wicca, Native American religions and Eastern mysticism, according to data from the Pew Research Center and the PCUSA.¨ – Joshua Gill, religion reporter.
The largely acceptance of these practices and their aesthetics is so popular that even Urban Outfitters and Sephora have made witch starter kits, and other witchcraft tools. Even Walmart has taken a part in this.
¨The millennial approach to spirituality seems to be about choosing and consuming different ‘religious products’ — meditation, or prayer, or yoga, or a belief in heaven — rather than belonging to an organized congregation,” according to UVA Today.
