A woman and her husband kill a man. She gives an interview to the press and says she’s killed more than twenty two people, and she was the leader of a Satanic cult since age thirteen.
I was reading the comments section and due her her claims of Satanism, many people thought she was lying. Also there were implications that those kinds of groups don’t exist.
Ritual killing has existed for a long time and is a well documented phenomenon, so is ritual abuse. While Satanic panic may have served its purpose, did it go too far and erase people’s memories that occult practices are, and have been, a widely practiced religion since forever ago?
Most don’t call theirs Satanism, it’s well hidden under the guise of Temple of Set, for example. I personally have met hundreds and hundreds of occult practitioners and have been to hosted parties in art warehouses, cage dancers and snakes and rituals being performed. I have never seen anything devious, but I’ve heard of sexual rituals and blood rituals etc. These are well educated people. High society. It’s disturbing because most have alternate facebook profiles with their occult names and they don’t have pictures of themselves, but many pics are now showing up with blood dribbling down the lips (uses of sexual imagery and blood) – so call me a liar. Ha. Why do people think the occult is a spook story?
I am not trying to draw a correlation between murder and other occult practices. Most occultists are not murderers. I am merely wondering why people resist the fact that it still goes on, and probably does so in places you’d least expect. Not just kids in basements. Attorneys, secretaries, advertising geeks etc.
