The Hocus Pocus rosé is yet another example of the mass marketing of witchcraft and the celebration of an unhealthy fixation on magic. Some sources have stated the rise in popularity of Wicca and witchcraft can be directly contributed to the media. Products glorifying witchcraft and the dark arts should not be mass marketed.
The Bible clearly addressed the occult in multiple verses, including:
“Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.” Deuteronomy 18:10-11
“Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 19:31
While witchcraft is a bit ambiguous, origins of the practices and beliefs have ties to Satan worship, Pagan rituals and the worship of various gods and goddesses.
The concept behind magic is manipulation and coercion of powers. The promotion of manipulation and coercion would be concerning to most anyone and, by extension, we should all be concerned about the promotion of witchcraft and magic.
