Yep, you read that correctly. We're not making this up.
The bizarre movement has cherry-picked a bit of theatrical stagecraft from Swift's Eras tour and are ranting about it on social media.
They seem to think the 33-year-old pop star is actually trying to promote naughty stuff through her actions on stage
One person took to Twitter to slam Swift and her witchy ways.
They wrote: "Never liked Taylor Swift, but now I definitely have a reason to. [I] just saw a video of her witchcraft/ritual performance on someone's Insta story. Nope! Get that evil out of here," before adding: “Believers should not listen to this."
But before it gets better, it gets worse. There was one more bizarre rant that is doing the rounds.
In a now-viral clip on TikTok, one Christian woman takes Swift's stage performance a little too seriously.
"This is Taylor Swift's song 'Willow' where she is a witch during rituals," the woman said.
"The first video you saw was taken by a fan the other night at the concert and he says, 'yes, summon the demons b***h!' The worst part is that [Swift] commented twice [on the video]. [Swift] said: 'This is the new 'one, two, three, let’s go b***h'," the woman explained.
"So what she’s saying is 'summon the demons' is the new crowd chant that they all say when she does his witchcraft ritual.
The person added: "Then she commented laughing emojis."
Riiiight. Anyway, it somehow gets even more bonkers.
The rant continues with a bit on how people 'keep saying stop shoving in Christianity down our throats' when huge artists are 'shoving witchcraft and rituals, crystals, astrology and all that down our throats'.
She then went way off the deep end, giving her explanation as to why people seem to hate Christianity so much.
"It’s because the demons get angry every time you mention God. Every time you mention Jesus they start foaming at the mouth. They start screaming and they start manifesting demons,” she said.
The woman then added: The demons don’t want to hear about Jesus. That’s the only name they’re afraid of. That’s the only name they have to answer to.That’s the only name that sends them to hell."
Goodness gracious, talk about taking it too far.
Admittedly, however, Swift has previously said her song ‘Willow’ 'sounds like casting a spell to make someone fall in love with you'.
She then riffed off that notion, putting out several several witch remixes of 'Willow'.
Also, in her song 'Mad Woman' from 2020's Folklore, Swift sings: "Women like hunting witches too. Doing your dirtiest work for you."
She also referenced witch hunts on her 2017 album Reputation.
"They’re burning all the witches, even if you aren’t one," she sings in the song 'I Did Something Bad'.
What these Conservative Christians seem to have missed is the more modern meaning of 'witch'.
It has also become synonymous with the Cottagecore aesthetic, which you'll find all over Etsy and Pinterest.
It's also the 'era' from which Swift's twin 2020 albums Evermore and Folklore draws inspiration from.
So, yeah, perhaps someone needs to show these religious folk another one of her songs, entitled ‘You Need To Calm Down’.
