A new Disney cartoon is teaching kids that being a witch is a good thing. It’s called The Owl House and recently premiered on the Disney Channel.
The show tries to portray witchcraft as a positive tool to fight evil. And some people say there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to a children’s show like this, arguing that it’s just make-believe.
But one former witch and lesbian told CBN’s “The Prayer Link” that parents need to be very careful about what their children watch.
“I actually watched a movie that was very popular when I was in high school and it was called The Craft,” said Jenny Weaver. “And the movie was about four high school witches that had all of this power, that had all of this control.”
Weaver, who grew up in a dysfunctional home, battled depression. She saw the power in the movie as a way out.
“I remember hearing these voices, ‘Just kill yourself. Just go away. It would be better off if you would just die.’ And so, I started to cut my wrists severely. I remember having 56 cuts all up and down my arms. My arms were shredded. And it was a way in my mind that I was able to escape,” explained Weaver.
