While we in the West have sadly grown used to faith not particularly mattering to people, even those who grew up in it, sometimes there are welcome changes from that apathetic stance toward religion. Somewhat shockingly, the most recent example of faith making a huge, high-profile difference in someone’s life comes from former witch and tattoo artist Kat Von D (Katherine von Drachenberg).
Von D converted to Christianity and posted a video of herself getting baptized this fall. But she didn’t just change her nominal faith and move on. She seems to really believe it and reorganized her life around the bedrock of her newfound faith, even waking up to what the far-left is like as a result.
Such is what Von D explained to BlazeTV shot Allie Beth Stucky, “Relatable,” saying that she woke up to what her current life was and what the left is really like during the 2020 unrest, particularly the George Floyd “mostly peaceful protests.
She told Stucky, “When the lockdowns happened … [my husband Rafael Reyes] just said, ‘Hey, baby, I think we got it wrong. You know, I think we got a lot of things wrong.’” Continuing, she said, “You have to understand at the time … BLM was going hard. I was in the middle of it. Like, I lived three doors down from the mayor of L.A., so we had Antifa, like, on our front yard, you know, after they threatened to do the Molotov cocktails and stuff like that. … So we were just, like, seeing things in real time, and they were much worse in real life than I think what people even put on TV.”
Watching black-clad thugs hurl firebombs has a way of changing people, and such was just what happened with Von D: “I started just kind of, like, re-evaluating, kind of going down the list of what I’m doing with my life. And it got to the part of my spirituality, and that’s where I started really rethinking a lot of things,” she said.
So, when reevaluating, she starting looking at how her friends who were involved in the occult were doing and how those who are members of the Christian faith. Predictably, those who take up their cross and follow Christ are doing better than the witches and warlocks.
She said, “My husband and I, we look at a Rolodex of friends that we have, and the ones that are dictating their life through that, and they’re leading their life through that, and they’re making their decisions through tarot or, you know, some of the witchcraft stuff … they’re all so miserable.”
She continued, “They’re the most broke people. Usually, most of them are single; they don’t have stability — and I’m talking about both financial and the love around them, right? There’s always this drama and dread and doom and gloom. I was one of them, you know. … I would look around at my Christian friends, and I’m like, they’re not perfect by any means, but I want what you have, you know? Like, I love the light that you have.”
So, she changed, and now she’s happy: “I feel like I’m the best wife and the best mother I can be now because of the changes that I’ve had. I mean … it’s like a deprogramming has taken place. Things that I used to find attractive are disgusting to me, you know? And it’s like, I wish I could put into words like how amazing those changes are.”
