Default Horrific Occult crimes (shocking)

It has just came to light from a video posted about what christians are doing to African witches that African people believe Satanic Paganists to be killing children as sacrafices in voodoo and Juju rituals.

It came to light after the video was posted, however after reading the comment box below the video it became evident that the Africans did not seem to share this view, and those crimes against children are Pagan rituals and Satanic gangs wanting to kill children to sell body parts....

I got tired of hearing Satanists and other garden variety occultists acting like that animal sacrifices, human sacrifices, sexual abuse, grave desecration, etc., never actually occur, and that it was all merely "urban legend". That gave me the idea for this list, by no means complete.

Here is a list of crimes that have been well documented listed by year in no particular order. The list starts at 1900, which I made the cut off point, and will go on into the present day. The list includes Wiccans, Voodooists, Santerios, Abqas, Crowleyites, a Theosophist, "Gnostic Alchemists", and of course, lots of Satanists (sorry, but Satanists seem to commit most of the occult crimes. Go figure). Plenty of occult crimes get little media coverage. I've listed a couple here that I personally know of, but that haven't got any airtime air time at all and only got mentioned in the local papers. Plenty of things happen that never get covered, I'm sure. In Miami for instance, finding Santeria items (used in trying to cast spells on judges)at the Dade County Courthouse...like parts of animals (chickens in particular), roots, herbs, candles, stones, etc., are so common place, they are not even considered news worthy anymore. This list is by no means a list of every occult crime committed by occultists since 1900.

OLDER CRIMES ARE ON PAGE 2 and PAGE 3

Do people into the occult ever commit violent crimes, or is it all just "xtian propaganda"?

2011 NOV. Milwaukee, WI Two Satanists were arrested for the ritual stabbing of a man during a "Satanic Sex Ritual" that, according to the victim, "got out of hand". The two women — Rebecca Chandler, 22, and Raven Larrabee, 20 — were arrested on 11-10-2011 and held on $150,000 bond and a $100,000 bond, respectively. According to a search warrant affidavit posted on The Smoking Gun website, the 18-year-old victim, Ruben Vati, met Chandler online and traveled by bus from Phoenix to Milwaukee to meet her. When he arrived, the young man told police, he was bound and stabbed for two days. he suffered over 300 stab wounds in all, but incredibly managed to survive the ordeal. Vati suffered stab wounds when the consensual sex "got out of hand," (now that's an understatement!) the affidavit said. Vati enjoyed the sex at first, but not the hundreds of stabs in his arms, neck, face, back and legs that followed, apparently. Police followed the trail of blood to the apartment after Vati called 911 from a nearby intersection."I think you are here looking for me," Chandler reportedly told the police. He later posted about the incident on Facebook, but only managed one word: "stitches".The affidavit also says police found a book titled "The Necromantic Ritual Workbook" by Leilah Wendell which promises to enable a reader to “share consiousness with the Angel of Death", and an "Intro to Sigilborne Spirits." , among other occult books. They also found a purportedly humorous book titled "A Werewolf's Guide To Life", because, hey, even would be Satanic human sacrificers have a sense of humor, ya know.

2011 SEPT. Pheonix, AZ – On 9-7-11, 33 people in all were indicted for prostitution at a New Age “healing center”. Phoenix Goddess Temple looks like a New Age resort, with hallways painted an earthy copper shade and adorned with statues, fountains, and paintings by Sedona artist Paul LaWrence Curtis . The “temple” claims to offer “touch therapy” which usually involves the “shamans” touching the genitals of the clients or “sacred sex” while New Age music plays over a boom box and stick incense is burned. Some forms of “therapy” involve spanking, and the “temple” even claimed to work with sexual abuse victims. Women at the temple used aliases like Magdalena, Shakti, and Devima. One alleged male prostitute who describes himself as a “shaman”, worked exclusively with overweight women. He called himself, a “spiritual warrior” and saw the police raid as a form of “religious persecution”. Prostitution wasn't the only problem. Licensed psychologists were concerned about the hack psychology techniques the “temple” used, saying they could actually do more harm than good. Licensed sex therapists are certified by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists , but no one at Phoenix Goddess Temple is certified or even has any formal training in Psychology. Diane Genco is founder of the AZ Center for Change in Phoenix and a licensed professional counselor who specializes in treating sexual abuse and trauma. She says a licensed therapist would "lose their license in a heartbeat" for touching a patient's genitals, and before a patient can begin to deal with the physical aspects of trauma, a lot of mental and behavioral things need to be addressed. The goddesses practice techniques that include genital touching for a "religious offering" of money that generally ranges from $204 to $650. Psychologist Genco says part of her practice does involve helping clients "re-learn how to be sexual without trauma being triggered," but "I can't even imagine any kind of therapy that involves touching a victim," she says. "It should never involve directly touching a patient in a sexual way. That is exploitation." Practitioners at the temple did not receive "payments" but accepted "donation only." That could give them some defense, James Hays, assistant city attorney for Phoenix says, "But if it's really a donation, then I should be able to go in there and say, 'I don't feel like giving a donation. Give me the services for free,' and then if there's no services — that's not a donation. It's like a forced gratuity." But Phoenix Goddess Temple is "really just a business modeled as something they're not, so they can get money," Hays says. "It happens all the time." Even though PGT advertisements go in the adult sections of local newspapers, Phoenix Goddess Temple founder Tracy Elise says the temple is not a brothel but rather, a “church”, and the services offered are religious rituals to enrich people's lives. We'll see if a jury buys it. There's a history of “sacred sex temples” throughout the world and about a dozen modern versions in the United States. In the past two years, at least three of them have been raided on suspicion of prostitution. Namastae! ( Phoenix New Times, Associated Press)

2011 AUG Murphy, NC - Wiccan High Priest Waco “White Wolf” Tohausen was convicted of the rape of a 5 year old child and selling of child pornography. He was sentenced to 3 years in prison and must register as a sex offender upon release. On 04/14/2010, Tohausen, then 37 years old, was arrested by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Department in Murphy, NC. The crimes, which were committed back in 2007, where only indicted on December 21, 2009. At the time, Tohausen was associated with a Wiccan Group known as the Temple of the Crystalline Star and the Lustration of the Ancestors (they need a more pretenstious name, huh?). The group removed his "clergy” status and tried to distance themselves from Tohausen when his arrest was made public. Tohausen was said to have been involved in the Neopagan/Wiccan community for many years. Had he been a Roman Catholic priest, you probably would have heard it on the national news of every network for weeks to come. (U.S. Marshall Service, WKRC)
*******************
2011 AUG Three men convicted of murdering three Cub Scouts in what police determined was a "Satanic Crime" were released from prison after serving 18 years. The defendants, known by their supporters as the West Memphis 3, agreed to a legal maneuver that lets them maintain their innocence while acknowledging prosecutors have enough evidence against them.

"I am innocent of these charges but I am entering an Alford guilty plea," Echols (who had a history of mental illness and hospitilizations for it previous to his convivtion) told the judge. Baldwin and Miskelley also reasserted their innocence.The three were credited with time served, and Echols is being freed from Arkansas' death row. They were placed on 10 years' probation and if they re-offend they could be sent back to prison for 21 years, Prosecutor Scott Ellington said. "I believe that it would be practically impossible after 18 years to put on a proper trial in this case," Ellington said. Indeed, no doubt evidence has been lost, contaiminaited, or accidentally destroyed, and witnesses may not remember all the details nearly two decades after the crime. As for persuing the "real" killers, "I believe this case is closed and there are no other individuals involved," Ellington said.

The case drew the attention of celebrities such as a member of the rock band Pearl Jam, The Dixie Chicks, and Johnny Depp who sympathized witht the convicts, and sought to prove them innocent. They and other celebrities helped fund a legal team that worked to win the three a new trial. No less than two "documentaries" slanted to make the trio completely appear innocent aired on HBO.

The May 5, 1993, killings were particularly gruesome. Steve Branch, Christopher Byers and Michael Moore were found nude, and hogtied, and rumors of Satanism roiled the community in the weeks following their deaths. Branch and Moore drowned in about 2 feet of water; Byers bled to death and his genitals were mutilated and partially removed.

Police had few leads until receiving a tip that Echols had been seen mud-covered the night the boys disappeared. The big break came when Misskelley unexpectedly confessed and implicated Baldwin and Echols in the killings.
"Then they tied them up, tied their hands up," Misskelley said in the statement to police, parts of which were tape-recorded. After describing sodomizing and other violence, he went on: "And I saw it and turned around and looked, and then I took off running. I went home, then they called me and asked me, 'How come I didn't stay? I told them, I just couldn't.'"

Prior to his arrest, Echols enjoyed playing the role of the neighborhood boogeyman and usually dressed in black and displayed sharpened fingernails. After his arrest, he was described in the press as a "Satanist". But Echols insisted several times he was actually a Wiccan. Born Michael Wayne Hutchison, he later changed his name to Damien (the name of the anti-Christ in the horor movie The Omen)in his teens after being adopted by the Echols family. Echols briefly joined a local Roman Catholic church, however this was apparently done to in order to steal the eucharist for occultic ceremonies. Many occultists, such as Voodooists and Santerios, have no problem combining Roman Catholicism with the occult.

Prosecutors describe the triple murder as a ritual slaying. Echols seemed to combine Wicca and Satanism in his belief system, which certainly isn't unheard of among teen solitary Wiccans. A notebook of Echols contained the "upright" pentagram of Wicca surrounded by upside down crosses. Probably the most incredible claim made by a witness for the prosecution was that Echols and his girlfriend had planned to have a baby and offer it as a human sacrifice.

Misskelley later recanted, and defense lawyers said the then-17-year-old got several parts of the story incorrect. An autopsy said there was no definite evidence of sexual assault. Miskelley had said the older boys abducted the Scouts in the morning, when they had actually been in school all day.

Misskelley was tried separately, convicted of first- and second-degree murder, and sentenced to life in prison plus 40 years. He refused to testify against the others and his confession was not admitted into evidence. Defense lawyers for Echols and Baldwin alleged juror misconduct, saying they heard about the Misskelley confession anyway. Attorneys also said there wasn't enough physical evidence linking the three to the crime scene. The Arkansas Supreme Court upheld Echols' conviction and death sentence in 1996, saying there was still enough other evidence to sustain it.

Last fall, the Arkansas Supreme Court ordered a new hearing for the three and asked a judge to consider allegations of juror misconduct and whether new DNA science could aid the men or uphold the convictions.

In upholding Echols' conviction in 1996, the state Supreme Court noted that two people testified Echols bragged about the killings, an eyewitness put Echols at the scene, fibers similar to the boys' clothing were found in Echols' home, a knife was found in a pond behind Baldwin's home, Echols' interest in the occult and his telling police that he understood the boys had been mutilated even before officers had released such details.

But then again...OJ Simpson and Casey Anthony were found innocent too.

2011 JAN San Joaquin Valley, CA Satanist Stanton Zaharoff LaVey, 33, and his girlfriend Mishael Nicely (a.k.a, Sharon Hate), 24, were arrested on suspicion of assaulting a 19-year-old they knew on Wednesday 1/19/2011, the Tulare County Sheriff’s Department reported. Authorities said the girl went with the couple to their home, where they smoked marijuana together. The girl told authorities that the couple would not let her leave. She was tackled and bound with tape at her hands and across her mouth, she reported. The couple sexually assaulted her and forced her to watch pornography, she reported. She was allowed to leave at 3 a.m. Thursday, she told authorities. A few days later, the girl decided not to press charges, and LaVey and Nicely were not prosecuted. LaVey is no stranger to the police. In an interview with Bizarre online magazine in 2005, LaVey admitted to being in and out of jail most of his life and even spending his 21st birthday behind bars. The Alien Elite indeed!

2011 JAN Sungai Bakap, Malaysia - A teacher at an Islamic school in Malaysia's northern state of Penang was detained for allegedly molesting a 14-year-old girl during a ritual to rid the young victim of a spell, a Malaysian newspaper reported on 01-11-11. The suspect, who is in his 40s, told the girl she was the victim of a spell cast upon her and urged her to go to his house to undergo a cleansing ritual, the Star newspaper said, citing police. The suspect was accused of fondling the girl while she took a bath Sunday. Police detained the man later that day after the girl and her mother lodged a police report. The man was later released on bail. Islam was born out of Arabian tribal Pagan religions, and in many countries Muslims live in fear of sorcery and "the evil eye". Belief in magic spells and use of talismans is quite common in the Islamic world. (Star Online)
*******************
2011 JAN TUCSON, AZ Jared Loughner, described by friends as "a pot smoking loner who was down on religion" , shot Blue Dog Democrat Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, and a Judge appointed by President Bush, and fatally killed a 9 year old girl. A total of 5 people were killed and 14 people were wounded. High school classmate Grant Wiens, 22, said Loughner seemed to be "floating through life" and "doing his own thing." "Sometimes religion was brought up or drugs. He smoked pot, I don't know how regularly. And he wasn't too keen on religion, from what I could tell," Wiens said. Lynda Sorenson said she took a math class with Loughner last summer at Pima Community College's Northwest campus and told the Arizona Daily Star he was "obviously very disturbed." "He disrupted class frequently with nonsensical outbursts," she said. Loughner left a rambling message on Youtube (under the name Classitup10) about "Conscious Dreaming". Conscious Dreaming is a form of supposedly stimulating mental hallucinations with the imagination, and with practice supposedly being able to cross over into a imaginary world of a dream while still conscious. Apparently it was through these occult practices that Loughner decided the government was trying to use "mind control" on the masses, as well as introduce a "new currency". On the following Monday, it was reported that Loughner had erected a "SATANIC Altar" in his back yard sometime prior to the shootings. A photograh appeared on the Internet, prompting his family to remove the altar to discourage more onlookers. Among the books Loughner listed on Youtube as his favorites included The Communist Manifesto, Mien Kampf, and the Siddartha (a novel about Bhudda). Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, many in the media mis-identified Loughner as a "member of the Tea Party". The chicken or the egg question is, did Loughner's occult practices contribute to his mental illness, or is it just another case of a mentally unstable person being attracted to the occult?

2010 – Salt Lake City, UT Tantra practitioner Janae Thorne-Bird of Heartsong Healing Center in Salt Lake City was jailed on prostitution charges. In 2009, three goddess temples in Seattle — all run by Elise's former student, Rainbow Love — were raided on suspicion of being brothels. Love was charged with three counts of promoting prostitution and attempting to promote prostitution. Love claims authorities violated her civil rights; Thorne-Bird claims freedom of religion — a tricky defense, Hays says. "The intersection between government regulation and religious expression is very complicated," Hays says. "I can't think of a case here where someone claims to offer sexual favors as part of their spiritual expression. It would be an interesting case, but I don't think it would work well for the church. The sex would be ancillary . . . you can do all your religious things without selling sex acts."

2010 DEC Burmingham, AL 20 year old Satanist and self proclaimed "Vampire" Francis Brown was charged with assault for using a fork or spoon to burn the letter "V" into the forehead of a 17-year-old, police said. The victim claims he was tricked by Brown, who invited him to play a game, Detective Mike Hooks reportedly told the Gadsden Times. The teen was tied up, beaten, branded with the "V" and burned with cigarettes, according to Hooks. "Vamp," as he was known, fled after the victim sought treatment and was caught when he showed up for court on unrelated charges, according to Sergeant Wayne Keener of the police department in Gadsden, where the incident allegedly occurred. "We went to the residence where he had lived. It was filled with satanic symbols on the wall. It was some kind of cult," said Keener. Also found was a book on witchcraft stolen from the local library, police said. The police department has condemned the house. (Reuters)

DEC 2010 PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – At least 45 people have been killed across Haiti due to accusations they are using "black magic" to spread cholera, the director of a VOODOO association said on 12-24-10. Most of the killings are occurring in the southern coastal town of Jeremie, where people are being lynched, set on fire and attacked with machetes, said Max Beauvoir, a Voodoo priest. But he said killings also have been reported in Cap Haitien and the Central Plateau. Local police did not return calls seeking comment on Beauvior's numbers on Christmas Eve, though The Associated Press reported in early December that national police spokesman Frantz Lerebours said machete-wielding mobs had killed a dozen people accused of practicing witchcraft to spread cholera. Roughly half of the 9.6 million people who live in Haiti practice Voodoo, which is African Paganism that sometimes incorprates Roman Catholic imagery (Mesopaganism). (Yahoo News)

July 2010 Pheonix, AZ Amber Niklaus , aged 7, was recused by police from a pair of Romanians who claim to be Gypsies as well as "PSYCHICS" who didn't see it coming. Police said the girl had been kept out of school, could not read, and spoke Romanian and English. The pair had forged documents giving the little girl another name to conceal her identity. Police raided "Centro Cosmico Palm" which offers Tarot readings, psychic readings, palm readings, and also "healings". The couple's residence was in back of the building. The couple's names have not been released by the police who are continuing the investigation. Amber was abducted before she was even 1 year old by a juvenile aunt, who is an aquaintance of the psychics. Police identifiied Amber from a footprint on her birth certificiate. (AP)

*******************
April 2010 ALBAQUERQUE, N.M. Wiccan Angela Sanford killed a man as a human sacrifice according to New Mexico aithorities. A detective reviewing Sanford's cell phone said the victim's phone number was actually programmed under the word "sacrifice."

Sanford is accused of killing 52-year-old Joel Leyba last month with a knife, after inviting him to join her in a Wiccan "celebration of spring". She claims Leyba tried to rape her near a popular hiking trail east of Albuquerque, and that she stabbed him in self-defense. But authorities have previously said that Sanford stabbed Leyba at least a dozen times with a ceremonial dagger (an athame), and that her account of the killing just doesn't add up. A Bernalillo County grand jury indicted the 30-year-old Sanford on 4-7-2010.

While Wiccans decry human sacrifice, and such an instance is certanly very rare, it is not unheard of. Gerald Gardner claimed his coven sacrificed 3 elderly members in a pathetic attempt to use "magic" against the Germans during WWII (as though somehow the 50 million people who died weren't enough). And Wiccan traditionhead Roy Bowers, a.k.a., Robert Cochrane comitted suicide by injesting Bella Donna leaves on the Summer Soltice of 1966 as a self-sacrifice. (CBS/AP)

2010 March, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa A Zululand man was jailed for 20 years by the Pietermaritzburg High Court on 3-24-10 for helping to murder a friend's sister for her body parts to be ultmiate used in Voodoo type rituals. Mathenjwa Mangomezulu, 45, father of five, earlier confessed to the murder. He said he and his friend Mcwecwe Mngomezulu killed Mcwecwe's 75-year-old sister Nongoziba by twisting her neck. They then cut out her tongue, oesophagus and eyes. They threw her body over a cliff, where it was found a few days later. Mcwecwe intended selling his sister's body parts to a witchdoctor (or "Shaman" to be politically correct) for R5000. Mathenjwa, who had never been to school, said he was paid R600 for his role in the murder, committed in December last year. Judge Kate Pillay found substantial and compelling circumstances for him so that she did not have to impose the prescribed life in jail sentence, so he'll probably be out in a few years to sell some other victim's body parts. Yes, wouldn't all socieities be better of they embraced Paganism and Shamanism? (IOL News for South Africa)

March 2010 Otawa, Canada Wiccan Johnathan T. Pinney, 25, was arrested on 3-15-10 for misdemeanor complaints of trespass and disorderly conduct. The charges stem from the accusation by a man that Pinney refused to leave his rural property, yelled, threatened to beat up a 14-year-old boy, and "got in the face" of the man, according to court records. Pinney bit an Ottawa police officer Jan. 13, 2006, while a patient in the mental health unit at Ottawa Regional Hospital. His trial was delayed until May 2008, because of concerns about Pinney's mental fitness. In that period he was in custody and was eventually found fit for trial. During the five-day-long trial, Pinney defended himself without an attorney and wore makeup that made him look like Chicago television horror film host Svengoolie. Pinney also wore unusual clothes and said he practiced magic, adhered to the Wicca religion, cast spells and quote "embraced evil". Blessed be! (AP)
*******************

2010 Feb Los Angeles, CA New Age guru James Arthur Ray was arrested for 3 counts of manslaughter for the deaths of his followers during a "sweat lodge" ceremony. Ray is the author of "Harmonic Wealth", "The Science of Success", and "The Seven Laws of True Wealth" and made several appearances on the Today show. Ray was the darling of celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey and was best known for his New Age DVD "The Secret", in which he makes claims that we can get whatever we can imagine and that all our pain and suffering is caused by negative thinking...the same lie promoted by Unity, Science of Mind, Christian Science,Rev. Ike, and others. New Agers are facinated with Native American "shamanism", and often try to re-create these Pagan ceremonies. Ray ran private courses in "self improvement and spirituality" on his remote camp in Sedona, Arizona. Sedona has become a hot spot for New Agers.

During the course of a 10-8-2009 retreat he organized a program called "spiritual warrior" and brought very hot rocks inside a tent where more than fifty people were put to test for enduring the pain and the heat. The attendees had paid up to $10,000 a person to participate in the retreat. They had fasted for 36 hours during a "vision quest" exercise before the next day's sweat lodge. During this vision quest, participants were left alone in the Arizona desert with a sleeping bag, although Ray offered them Peruvian ponchos for an additional $250. One follower said Ray even conducted a game where he "played God". During this Pagan Native American (shamanism) "sweat lodge" ceremony, some followers complained of the heat and asked to leave. Within an hour of entering the sweat lodge, people began vomiting, gasping for air and collapsing. Upon hearing their pleas to be allowed to leave, Ray instead chided them for their weakness while safely outside, and challenged them to face their fears. 2 people died during the ceremony in the heat and darkness, a thrid person was taken to the hospital and died a few days later. A site owner reported she learned after the event that participants went two days without water before entering the lodge.

This is not the first time followers have been injured at one of Ray's shindigs. In another 2005 sweat lodge ceremony, EMS responded to a 911 call because of a participant who had fallen unconcious during the activity. In 2005 a woman shattered her hand during one of Ray's "martial arts" seminars while attempting to shatter a board, instead shattering several bones in her hand. In 2006 during another "spiritual warrior" retreat, a man recieved an arrow in the eyebrow while trying to resist it being pushed against his throat in a demonstration of mind powers. Also in 2009, during a seminar where the attendees dressed as homeless people, one woman fell to her death. Astonishingly, instead of apologizing and trying to help the people he has harmed, Ray was marketing himself in recent weeks at free seminars, trying to drum up more business! Let's see him visualize a pardon. There's really nothing mystical about a sweat lodge...it's just superstition. It's too bad in a civilized country like the USA so mnay people go for the ridiculous and dangerous...and at a premium price. (Yahoo News, Wikipedia)

2010 Jan. Korangi, Karachi, Pakistan A couple was charged by police for the sacrifice of one of their children and the attempted sacrifice of another. Police raided a home in Southern Pakistan thought to be housing terrorists when instead they discovered the couple residing there had killed their infant daughter, named Fazeelat, and buried her under the dirt floor. Police noticed the smell of rtting flesh and saw the lose dirt on the floor, and discovered the baby's body. Police say their other daughter, Maryam, aged 3 was found tied hand and foot in a semi-concious state surrounded by burning candles, with the mother close by. Police also discovered books on black magic in the home. The killer, Nadim and his wife said ill-wishers had put them under a black magic spell, police told the BBC. To ward off the spell, they had contacted a "pir" - or faith healer - in the north-western city of Dera Ismail Khan, and were following his instructions. Nadim had told police that "evil forces" wanted to take Fazeelat away. A doctor who carried out a post mortem at Karachi's Jinnah hospital said she had been dead for about four days. A spokesman for the police said he believed the couple would have killed their other daughter as well. Belief in magic spells and use of talismans is quite common in the Islamic world. (BBC)

2010 January Devon, UK Police believe a bizarre outbreak of horse mane weaving may be the work of a cult of pagans practising "white magic". Nearly 20 animals have been singled out for the unwanted and bizarre treatment over the past three months in Hemyock, Culmstock and Clayhidon, the Culm Valley and Exeter. Officers initially believed the horses were being marked for theft by organised criminals but none of them disappeared. Now they think white witches who practise "knot magick" are using the horses to help them cast spells. The strange practice has broken out in fields in Devon and parts of Dorset and Somerset. Excuse me, but is this the 21st century A.D. or B.C.? (THISISWESTERNMORNINGNEWS.CO.UK 1-13-2010)

2010 Feb Seatle, WA According to court documents, self proclaimed Wiccan Eric Christensen, 40, has told police that when he found out his girlfriend, 35-year-old Sherry Harlan, was talking to another man, he forced her to take a Wiccan blood oath, making her promise she'd end all contact. Christensen says he found a text message from the guy on Harlan's phone shortly thereafter, a transgression that he alleges made her a "'warlock,' literally an "oath breaker". Two days later, investigators found her burned-out car with partial human remains inside. The rest of Harlan's remains were found later, when an accomplice of Christensen's led police to a number of shallow graves around Snohomish County. While practicing the Craft of The Wise, Christensen managed to rack up prior convictions for assault, sexual abuse and domestic violence. He currently faces charges of first-degree murder.

Dec. 2009 BRASILIA, Brazil – The stepfather of a 2-year-old boy along with two others were arrested after the toddler was found with 42 needles in his body (some reports have it around 50). Some needles were as long as two inches. "We think it could have only been by penetration because we found needles in the lung, the left leg and in different parts of the thorax. It couldn't have been by ingestion," the attending physician said.The stepfather has confessed to jabbing them into the toddler as part of a Santeria-like ritual, Brazilian police said on 12-17-09. Roberto Carlos Magalhaes told detectives that a woman who went into a trance would "command him to stick the needles in the boy's body," police inspector Helder Fernandes Santana said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.In Brazil, Santeria is called Macumba, and is very similar to the Santeria practiced in Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Miami. A black magic version, known as Quimbanda or Zarabanda, is also practiced in Brazil. The boy's father, Gessivaldo Alves, told the newspaper A Tarde that he believed his son could have been a victim of a black magic ritual. Alves reportedly said he visited the home where the boy was living and found unspecified items that could be used for black magic. The child, meanwhile, was airlifted to a major hospital in northeastern Brazil because two of the needles are close to his heart, but it was not immediately clear when doctors might be able to remove them.(AP)

2009 August Anadarko, OK - On 8-23-09 Residents of the small town of Anadarko (65 miles from Oklahoma City) were horrified after the grizly discovery of the mutilated body of Rev. Carol Daniels, 61, in what appeared to be a staged in a "crucifix" position. Professor Brent Turvey, criminal profiler and crimonologist working on the case, said "It could have been deliberate. They’re in a church; they put her in this position, perhaps a defiant way of saying, ‘Screw you and your God. Look how your God didn’t help you.’" The killer had stripped Daniel's body nude and took the clothing with him. The killer also took time to spray a chemical over the crime scene to eliminate DNA evidence. Investigators said they are haunted by the methodical nature of the killing of the woman inside the Christ Holy Sanctified Church, once an old grocery store that sits on the edge of a predominantly black neighborhood. Rev. Daniels, who died as a martyr for Christ, was a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond and a mother. Investigators have ruled out the possibility the act was done by a serial killer. Investigators have not ruled out the possibility the act was an occult related crime. The killer or killers still remain at large. Anyone with information should contact the Anadarko Police Department at (405) 247-2411. (NewsOK)

2009 June Bridgeport, CT — Police in Connecticut have confirmed that a skull found in a bloody basement where they believe sacrificial rituals were performed is a human skull. Bridgeport Detective Keith Bryant says the medical examiner's office made the determination. Now there is an anthropological review to try to determine the sex and age of the person and when he or she died. Bryant says a headless body was found in Bridgeport about a decade ago, but it's not clear if there is a connection to the skull found during a drug raid Tuesday. Five people were charged with drug and gun crimes. Police believe Santeria or some kind of voodoo religion was practiced there. They also found Satanic writings and a beheaded chicken with its blood draining into a bowl. (The Connecticut Post)

2009 March Palm Harbor, FL Palm Harbor University baseball coach Jeremy Albrecht was suspended after his team participated in the sacrifice of a snake to improve the team's performance. According to second baseman Zach Sobel."We were on a losing streak and Coach said we were snake-bitten," Sobel said, "So we just kind of went with it." Albrecht, 34, was relieved of his duties while the Sheriff's Office investigates allegations that he was involved in the incident, Pinellas County schools spokeswoman Andrea Zahn said. Sobel, a senior, said the players fed the snake a rat to make it more docile, killed the snake with a shovel and buried it on the pitcher's mound, and that Albrecht was not present. Sobel would not say which players bought the snake or killed it, but no one objected. Unremorseful for the sacrifice, Zobel said "It's unfortunate because our coach could lose his job over this and he shouldn't. We don't deserve this".

2009 March-Nation of Gambia In the Muslim nation of Gambia 1,000 people were rounded up and forced to drink hallucinogens in a "witch-hunting campaign" that is terrorizing the tiny West African nation according to Amnesty International. Authorities began inviting "witch doctors," (Shamans) who combat witches, to come from nearby Guinea soon after the death earlier this year of the president's aunt. Jammeh "reportedly believes that witchcraft was used in her death," the London-based rights group said. Victims are being "forced to drink unknown substances that cause them to hallucinate and behave erratically," the rights group said in a statement. "Many are then forced to confess to being a witch. In some cases, they are also severely beaten, almost to the point of death." Hundreds fled to neighboring Senegal after their villages were attacked, Amnesty said. In 2007, Jammeh declared he had discovered a cure for AIDS and began treating patients inside the presidential palace, using herbs and incantations (in other words, witchcraft). His dictatorial regime has cracked down harshly on critics, especially the press. On March 8, authorities arrested Halifa Sallah, who has written about the "witch doctors" for the main opposition newspaper, Foroyya. Sallah, who was a presidential candidate in 2006, has since been charged with sedition and spying, Amnesty said. (Ruters)

Jan. 2009 Lagos, Nigeria Police in Nigeria are holding a goat on suspicion of attempted armed robbery (really, no kid-ding). Vigilantes took the black and white beast to the police saying it was an armed robber who had used black magic to transform himself into a goat to escape arrest after trying to steal a Mazda 323. "The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car. They pursued them. However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat," Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed told Reuters by telephone. "We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody. We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat," he said (Right, and since the cops over there don't believe in such things, the reason the police are still holding the goat is...?)

JULY 2008 San Antonio TX 29 year old Kethan Beschorner, A 365 pound 6'4'' Satanist was arrested after murdering his girlfriend, Michelle LaGue, 44. Beschorner said demons had been "nagging him to kill somebody", so he chose LaGue because people might connect her death to another man she was going to testify against in the 2005 murders known as the "Taco Land slayings". The sacrifice took place on 7-4-08 after the pair had been drinking and smoking pot, and she refused to have sex with him. They fought briefly before he grabbed a knife and began stabbing her, police said. The body of LaGue was found July 7 inside her apartment in the 1000 block of West Russell. She had been slashed and nearly decapitated. Like manySatanists who get arrested, Beschorner told police that he recently became a believer in Jesus Christ in jail after having worshiped Satan. Well, I'd say the Satanist thing isn't working for him, so he might as well try Christ. Couldn't hurt at this point. (San Antonio News)

2008 DECEMBER, CARY, NC Four teenagers were charged with Eagle Scout Matthew Silliman's death. The teens "foretold his future" using tarot cards, then proceeded to beat him on the head with a hammer, bound him with zip ties, and suffocated him with duct tape, according to search warrants. A defense attorney for one of the self confessed slayers said "She's not a bad person," I'd hate to see his idea of a bad person, in that case. The warrants also said investigators seized "medications commonly used for animals to plan the murder and read the deceased his fortune using tarot cards just prior to his death." The four "friends" of the Eagle Scout -- Drew Shaw, 16, Ryan Hare, 18, and Aadil Khan, 17, of Apex and Allegra Dahlquist, 17, of Cary -- confessed to the crime and each face one count each of murder. Hare and Shaw are also charged with one count of conspiracy to commit murder.Matthew Silliman, 18, was given a memorial service at Peace Presbyterian Church in Cary Monday afternoon, 12-8-08.(The News & Observer of Raleigh)

2008 NOV. San Juan, TX San Juan police are asking the public for help finding two "Brujares" who scammed a man out of approximately $1,000 dollars using the old "cursed money" scam.

One of them told a 79-year-old man that she could tell something was wrong and that she knew he had lot of money. To prove her alleged psychic power, she asked for him for a white t-shirt and an egg. "She blessed him with an egg and smashed the egg inside a shirt where a bone and a hair was produced," said San Juan police spokesman Rolando Garcia. The elderly man allegedly interpreted that as a sign of bad luck and handed over approximately $1,000. The Brujares took the cash, began to wrap it in the shirt and a handkerchief and made one more request. "In the process of blessing the money, they ended up doing a switcharoo," Garcia said "They had him pick a leaf off a tree. That's where he gave the back to the suspects." They took the leaf and gave it to him with a handkerchief and what he thought was his money. The woman said if he kept it under his pillow for two weeks he would obtain good luck and be blessed. But the man's daughter was suspicious and had her father open the handkerchief. That's when they discovered it was full of newspaper clippings instead of his money.

The egg scam happened when the two women drove up to Juan Rodriguez's home on the 100 block of West Alfredo Street in San Juan.Police said the alleged fortune teller is described as a Hispanic female in her late 30's to early 40's, with hazel eyes, thick brows and brown hair.The driver was also Hispanic, in her late 40's to 50's. Both were wearing floral skirts.Police believe they might be traveling in a white truck with partial Texas plates X-X-7.If you have any information, call San Juan Crime Stoppers at (956) 283-TIPS.

2008 SEPTEMBER WESTERN RUSSIA A cult of teenagers Satanists were arrested by authorities for sacrificing and then eating their victim's remains in a "cannibal feast". Ksneia Kuzetsova, Alexander Vornov, Anton Makovkin, and leader Nikolia Ogolobyak were all arrested for the homocides of four russian teenagers. Teachers of the accused told detectives that most had been moody at school and were of lower than average intelligence and were all described as "Goths". The victims were Anya Gorokhova, Varya Kuzmina, Olga Pukhova, and Andrei Sorokin. Each victim was stabbed 666 times before being roasted in a bonfire, according to police. The teen victims had been missing for months, when police discovered the remains in a charred pit in a wooded area. Above the pit was an upside down cross with a rat crucified on it. Victim Sorokin's father later told police "My son said he had Satanists among friends. I wasn't scared. I thought 'Well, let him spend his time sitting around a cemetery--there's not much harm in that, is there?" Leader Ogolobyak later told police he became a Satanist because God didn't make him rich, but "things improved when he prayed to the Devil". So...if you can't be wealthy, settle for cannibalism and murder? [UK Daily Mail]

2008 JULY LEBANON, IN - A coven of Wiccans were warned that being in Oak Hill Cemetary (a central Indiana cemetery about 20 miles northwest of Indianapolis) after posted visiting hours constitutes trespassing. No charges were filed, police said . The would be witches were illegally performing a ceremony to "give thanks for a recent run of good luck". The ceremony involved the use of candles, incense and driving swords into the ground during the full moon. The incident came to police attention after a Wiccan, Katherine Gunther, 36, of Lebanon, pierced her left foot with a sword while performing ...ironically enough...a good luck ritual. You can write your own joke here. Hospitals automatically contact police anytime there is a stabbing, shooting or evidence of assault. Gunther said she was aiming to put the sword in the ground, but hit her foot instead. Gunther immediately pulled the sword out of her foot, and the rest of the coven took her to Witham Memorial Hospital, where she was kept a couple days for treatment. I guess her luck ran out. "It wasn't the first time I performed the ritual, but it was the first time I put a sword through my foot," she said. If Wiccans want to stop being mistaken for Satanists, then they need to stop performing spells in graveyards. Geeze. (AP 7-22-08)

2008 July Deltona, Florida A voodoo doll found in the front yard of a Deltona commissioner with her picture glued on the head and pins in the body has led to extra security for city leaders. The 6-inch doll was found earlier this month in the front yard of Commissioner Zenaida Denizac's home. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Volusia County Sheriff's office has ramped up patrols near the homes of elected officials, hoping the extra patrols will deter any further harassment. "My first thought was somebody wants to destroy me,” Denizac said. “I don't know a lot about these things, but because of all the pins, I assume someone wants me destroyed." Deltona is a few miles from Cassadaga, the last of two spiritualist camps in the U.S. The tiny village of psychics and occult bookstores is a magnet for occult wierdos of all kinds (I even saw Shirley McClaine there once). Anyone with any information should call the Volusia County Sheriff's Department @ (386) 860-7030 (AP)

2008 Kitakyushu, Japan On June 27, police at Kitakyushu City's Kokura Minami branch arrested Maki Sakaguchi, 29, on suspicion of violating the anti-stalking law. Yukan Fuji (on June 28) reported the police acted on complaints that Sakaguchi had stalked her ex-boyfriend, frantically pleading him to return to her, and had also made repeated threatening telephone calls to his new lady friend. The case took an interesting turn when the authorities searched Sakaguchi's residence and turned up a "noroi no wara ningyo," a straw doll used in Japan since ancient times for the purpose of "voodoo-type curses". The doll was tacked to a board bearing the name of Sakaguchi's female rival; a pair of 5-inch nails had been driven into the torso. Not only didn't it work, but she landed in jail! (AP)

2008 May 1st, White Plains, N.Y. — A rather homley 51-year-old man who claimed to practice Voodoohas admitted telling underage girls that if they refused to have sex with him terrible things would happen to them and their families. Hector Aviles of Yonkers pleaded guilty 5-1-08 (appropriately enough, the day after the occult holiday of "May Eve") to second- and third-degree rape, said Janet DiFiore, the Westchester district attorney. Aviles could be sentenced to up to 15 years in prison. DiFiore said that at various times in 2006, Aviles told three girls, ages 16 and 14, that he could help them with such problems as boys and parents if they engaged in a sexual "ritual" with him. He warned that if they backed out, he would make bad things happen to them and their relatives. The district attorney said that when he was arrested, Aviles confessed to police he practiced Voodoo.

Before the man's arrest, members of the RCZ had started mobilising resources to help the man travel back to South Africa after he confessed having failed to kill the pastor.

Prosecutors say she killed her daughter because she believed she was possessed and "would not stay in bed and kept interrupting" a telephone conversation. Relatives of Spann say she was involved in "Voodoo rituals" and had consulted someone described as "being heavily into the occult" shortly before the slayings. Spann's father, Gary Spann, told The Sacramento Bee in 2005 his daughter routinely called the girl a "devil child" and also belonged to a bizzare cult that worshipped the late rapper Tupac Shakur as the reincarnation of the 16th century political philosopher Machiavelli. Yes, really. Subsequent investigation showed the little girl had been subjected to extensive abuse and had been removed from her mother's care three times in California, only to be returned each time.

2007 Denver, CO On 12-9-2007 24-year-old Matthew Murray killed five people, and injured several others in a rampage that spanned 70 miles, from a missionary training center that expelled Murray to Colorado Springs' New Life Church, a symbol of the Pentecostal and charismatic Christianity he so despised. He was killed by a volunteer female security guard as he entered the church. Somehow, a child of a prominent doctor, someone who was home schooled in a comfortable Denver suburb, evolved from would-be Christian missionary to a killer trying to rain Columbine down on the Christian world. After Murray rejected religion, he became fixated on people and groups that explore the dark side of spirituality, obsessing over the Satanic lyrics of Swedish metal bands, and doing other odd things. Murray attended events held by the Denver-based occult group Ad Astra Oasis during the last two years, but was turned down when he sought to become a member of the group. His involvement with them ended in October, supposedly. (AP)

Police arrested suspect Danijel Jakupek who later confessed to the crimes.“The murders were not committed for the sake of the murder, rather they are typical of a cult-inspired ritual. Everything we found in the suspect’s house points to that conclusion,” Chief Inspector Zoran Lukovic said. Upon searching his house , police found an improvised satanist altar in the basement, while certain pieces of furniture were painted over in Satanistcolors, red and black, as well as occult literature. Asked how it was possible that no one noticed the suspect’s strange behavior, Lukovic said that people in Serbia “are usually poorly informed of cults and sects.” He called for the ministries of health and religion to join in the campaign to fight dangerous cults operating in Serbia.

Police said the abuse started when the victim was 6 years old and continued until authorities recently got a tip.Officers said Williamson was involved with the Wiccan religion and may have used its "mystical traditions" as a way to spark the interest of young girls. Officers said they are not immediately aware of any other victims, but it appears that there could be more who have not yet come forward. People with information related to the case should contact the department's Crimes Against Children Unit at 602-534-3200 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.(AP)

2007 Zimbabwe A witchdoctor, or to be PC, "Traditional Pagan healer and shaman" Rotina Mavhunga claimed in April that she had discovered deposits of refined gasoline seeping from rocks near a spiritual shrine in the Chinhoyi district, 60 miles northwest of Harare. The shaman told her followers the fuel could last hundreds of years and was "a gift from ancestral spirits who saw their children suffering because of the shortages of fuel," according to a government spokesperson. Top politicians, Security Minister Didymus Mutasa, Defense Minister Sydney Sekeramayi and Home Affairs Minister Kembo Mohadi, in charge of police, went to the district to investigate the claims — a sign that the government took them seriously. But the scam was busted before it even got off the ground, and police arrested 50 followers of Mavhunga. The tribal healer/shaman herself was last reported still on the run. (ZWNews)

2007 Balitmore, Maryland "Native American psychic" Grace Uwanawich struck a plea deal with a Maryland court, to recieve a reduced sentence of 18 mos. in jail. The deal includes nearly $257,000 in restitution to four former clients. Authorities say Uwanawich, 63, defrauded vulnerable middle-aged women by persuading them to hand over tens of thousands of dollars to crush devastating curses. One woman was a 57-year-old Poolesville Chineese woman who, over the course of a year, gave Uwanawich more than $160,000 in cash and property. The woman was told she and her family had a curse that dated to the building of the Great Wall of China. After wiping out the Poolesville woman's bank accounts, maxing out her credit cards and tricking her into buying a Mercedes Benz she never got to drive, Uwanawich stopped giving the woman appointments."This is beyond fortunetelling for entertainment purposes," Montgomery Assistant State's Attorney Carol Crawford said. She compared Uwanawich to a "leech" who drained her victims' wealth by terrorizing them with the prospect of spells and then becoming their only source of solace. Court records show she was also arrested in Chester County, Pa., and later in Philadelphia during the 1990s in connection with similar scams. (AP)

2007 Riyadh, Saudi Arabia Next time someone whines on an internet blog about "religious persecution" against would-be-witches in the U.S.A., just remember this story: In Oct.Saudi Arabia’s religious police, known as Mutawas, have arrested a domestic worker accused of having put a spell on her employer, the Al-Madina newspaper reported. Witchcraft is a capital offence in Saudi Arabia, where Sharia law is strictly applied.The Mutawas, discovered “talismans and products of charlatanism” in a search of the maid’s quarters in the eastern city of Damman. The arrest of the maid, whose nationality was not revealed (but probably from Indonesia or Sri Lanka), followed a complaint by the wife of the employer who she said had been “bewitched by the maid”. The woman said she suspected her husband had been put under a spell because he fiercely defended the maid from criticism every time she neglected her work. A more logical explanation is the employer and maid were having a tryst, which would explain why he doesn't care if she cleans the house or not, and the "spell" doesn't seem to affet the wife. The paper said the maid, “admitted she took refuge in sorcery so as to make her employers like her”...but of course Arab newspapers aren't well known for their truth telling ability. Everyone reading this, please pray for this girl that her life is spared, and complian to the Saudi embassy. (Al Madina Press)

2007 Lake City, Idaho Wiccans and Satanists learn to overcome their differences and work together! A self proclaimed Satanist and a self proclaimed Wiccan were arrested for the burning of a Seventh-Day Adventist School library. Damage to the library was estimated at $30,000. Rathdrum resident Jason Howry, 20, and Athol resident Jacqueline Smith, 16, were charged Tuesday and booked into the Kootenai County Jail on charges of first-degree arson, police said. Maybe Wicca made her feel all grown up. It should, because Smith was charged as an adult. Smith told detectives she practiced the Wiccan religion and that Howry proclaimed he was a "Satan worshipper." I wonder if they said "So Mote It Be!" or "Hail Satan!" when they got done burning that awful, intolerant library that was persecuting them? (spokesmanreview.com)

2007 Santa Maria, CA In July Wiccan couple Sean and Rachelle Pelino face six felony counts each, including several charges of lewd and lascivious acts with a minor. Police said the couple used the Wiccareligion to lure a 15-year-old girl into sex. Investigators say the suspects were using Wiccan rituals and drugs, including marijuana (use of which is mentioned in the Gardnerian Book of Shadows as part of the 8-fold path), to seduce the teen. Lieutenant Kendall Greene of the Santa Maria Police Department said the encounters "...involved threesomes between husband, wife and victim. Sometimes individual, one on one," sex was involved as well. Blessed Be! (KSBY 6 Action News ksby.com)

2007 Belgrade, Serbia A man was arrested 9-1-07 on suspicion that he killed a 5-year-old boy and his uncle and dismembered them in a Satanic ritual, Serbian police said. The suspect, identified only as "Danijel J.", 27 y.o. , is accused of cutting off the victims heads, arms and legs in Novi Banovci, a village just north of Belgrade, before he dumped their bodies into the Danube River, a police statement said. Zoran Lukovic, a police inspector involved in the investigation, told reporters a search of Danijel’s flat in the village showed he possessed “Satanic literature” including a manual on how to dismember a human body and that he belonged to "an unidentified religious sect". Lukovic, the police inspector, said that police discovered “a room with an altar” at Danijel’s home where he performed Satanic rites.

2007 Papua,New Guinea Officials report Pagan shamanisitc beliefs are causing people to committ murder. Tribesmen resort to old ways and rituals to 'ward off evil spirits',including the murder and torture of those believed to be witches. Suspected witches – mostly women but including some men and even children – have been subjected to horrific torture before being hanged or thrown off cliffs. A growing Aids crisis and the collapse of health services have sapped villagers' faith in Western medicine and prompted a return to ancestral beliefs. Barely educated villagers living in remote mountain valleys are blaming the increasing number of A.I.D.S. deaths not on promiscuity but on black magic. "We're seeing a big rise in witchcraft cases. We hear of a killing almost every week," said Hermann Spingler, a German Lutheran pastor who heads the Melanesian Institute, a cultural study centre in Goroka. "They take the law into their own hands and torture people to make them 'confess'. They drag women on ropes behind vehicles, burn them with hot wire, chop off hands, fingers. People have been buried alive." (telegraph.co.uk)

"After that, the mãe-de-santo (afro-Brazilian priestess) said that he would pay dearly for that and that he wouldn't live more than one year. The priestess also asked Rosa to deliver his heart to her and that's why she dismembered him." Santos was convicted of the crime and recieved 19 years in prison. (brazzilmag.com)

2006 Melbourne, Austrailia First Druids allow the Romans to invade Britain, now this. A 50 year oldDruid High Priestess, whose full name is just “Morgan”, was refused admittance to Cushion Lounge night club. Later she filed charges that the bar had discrimated against her based on her religion (couldn’t see that one coming, could you?). In October, the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) decided the nightclub (which was a hotpsot for 20 somethings to hang out) had actually refused her admittance because she was “too old”, but did agree that had sexually discriminated against her by telling her she “needed a good [BLEEP]”. The woman claimed she had gone to the club to retrieve her 16 year old son, an underage drinker, off to a good start in life already. The 3 security guards were ordered to complete a two-hour course in “equal opportunity”. The judge gave Morgan the chance to seek $2000 from the guards and the bar by nominating someone else to receive it. She previously told the tribunal that as a druid she was unable to accept compensation, according to a news report. Trust me, all the attention she got WAS the compensation!

2006 Wixom City, Mich In May, Druid John Jordan Anderson was arrested for the murder of Wiccan Natsha Miller, 19. Anderson, described by Miller's close friends as "creepy," according to court documents, had dated the 19-year-old known as "Tasha" until they broke up around Thanksgiving 2005. Her nude body was discovered by hikers along the banks of the floating in the Huron river on Powers Beach in the Proud Lake State Recreation Area. Funeral services were held for the young woman just eight days before her 20th birthday. During an 11-hour police questioning, Anderson slipped in and out of an English accent, discussed druid beliefs, and talked of his love of fantasy and science fiction novels. Anderson said he had been driving a friend around at the time of the murder. The friend denied it, saying Anderson only told him that "something bad happened" and he would talk to him about it later. Eventually he confessed to strangling her with a 2-foot-long orange ribbon he often used to tie up his ponytail or wear on his arm, said Detective Scott Tarasiewicz of the Milford Police Department. During his admission, Anderson told police he had recently embarked on a religious comparative study and decided to become a Druid, based on druidism's focus on "the earth's natural elements" (and they also practiced ritual human sacrifice, go figure). Anderson told police Miller was a Wiccan, or white witch, and said that, because of his beliefs and hers, he had to dispose of the body by earth, water or fire after he killed her to return her to the natural elements, Walton said. Trial began in June 2007. Anderson kept a blog on his web site with postings titled "Miss Murder," "Angry Again" and "Blood Poetry," which prosecutors plan to show the jury. Despite Anderson's lengthy confession, a judge ruled the jury won't hear some of the statements he made to police regarding his druid beliefs.(The Oakland Press News)

2005 Odessa, Ukraine In June, Diana Semenuha, 29, A self described practioner of black magic and "vampire" was arrested in the Ukraine after luring street children into her home for their blood. Semenuha believed that drinking blood could fend off a muscle-wasting condition. She kept the children intoxicated on drugs and alcohol and bled them regularly, selling the surplus to other black magic practitioners. Semenuha's arrest exposed an occult network in the city. Many claimed to have been taught by Semenuha and said that she would cut herself and let them drink her blood. When that weakened them, she dumped them back on the streets and lured replacements with the promise of a place to sleep and a hot meal. Police raided Semenuha's apartment in the Black Sea port of Odessa after a tip-off.

The ACLU decided to take the case to court. Since Wicca is a make-it-up-as-you-go-along occult religion, anything can have religious signifcance. Do you think if I delcared that Bill Gates is diriminating against me because my Wiccan beliefs say he should give me $ 1 Billion and he won't, that I'd have a case? (AP)

Officials noted 23 cases from January to August 2004 compared to 18 for the whole year of 2003. Cemetery profanations have been especially frequent in eastern French regions such as Alsace, where the report said Satanist groups had linked up with neo-Nazis. Swastikas and satanic symbols have been found spray-painted on tombstones in Christian, Jewish and Muslim cemeteries in eastern France over the past year. (The Paris News)

2005 Queens, NY 20 y.o. Daniel Romano claims he was beaten up because he was a member of the Church of Satan. Romano, who still lives with his mom, wears makeup, blue hair, goth tyoe clothes and inverted crosses says he was persecuted for his religion by two neighbor boys, with whom he's had run-ins in the past. The Church of Satan however, denies Romano's a member. High priest of the Manhattan-based church said, “I don’t know the guy,” said High Priest Peter Gilmore, the church’s leader. “I can’t vouch if he is a Satanist or not. He might be somebody that’s out for publicity. Anybody who says he’s a Satanist, and is not a member, we don’t support,” Gilmore added. “How can we? There’s a lot of crazy people out there.” What? You mean a 20 y.o. with blue hair and dresses like Edward Scisorhands just wants attention??? (AP)

2005 Springfield, Ohio - In a little publicized case (considering the crime), a Wiccan couple was charged with the ritualistic murder of their 13 month old infant daughter, Jacqueline Mae Cooper. The stepfather, Daniel Duffield, 32, was charged with murder, involuntary manslaughter, child endangering and felonious assault involving puncturing the girl's feet and face. The girl's mother, Vanessa McGlumphy, 25, was charged with involuntary manslaughter and child endangering. Aside from a fatal neck injury, the toddler's body was also riddled with more than 40 puncture wounds, 12 broken ribs and a lacerated liver. Prosecutors believed religious tattoos on the two Wiccans matched puncture wounds on the toddler's feet. McGlumphy, in an attempt to pin all the blame on her hubby, said Duffield was of a "different religion" than she, and a "black pagan". She claimed the sacrifice was done as part of a ritual of Duffield's "religion". Surprisingly, in this intolerant "xtian" nation that hates Wiccans so much, the couple only recieved 15 years for the stepfather, and 10 years for the mother. Hardly worth the life of a baby if you ask me. (AP)

2005 Denmark A Danish Satanist accused of having sex with and pimping his 10-year-old daughter to a slew of men went on trial in Denmark in a case that has shocked the Scandinavian country.The case, Denmark’s highest-profile incest and pedophilia trial, has made headlines since the man’s arrest in August 2005. The accused, 47, a member of a Satanic cult, told police in December he repeatedly had sex with his daughter between February and August 2005, when the girl was aged 10 and 11. Police arrested the man after receiving an anonymous tip. Placing advertisements in papers and on the internet, the man is alleged to have invited men to his house in Toender, in southwestern Denmark, to pay to have sex with his daughter. The man pleaded guilty in court. Fourteen clients have already been convicted in recent months and sentenced to jail terms of up to six years for having sex with the girl. Prosecutors have also charged the man with physically abusing his second daughter in 2003 and 2004 when she was six and seven. The girls’ 43-year-old mother, a schizophrenic, was sentenced in December to a secure psychiatric hospital for an undetermined period for complicity to incest. The man went on trial for the crimes in 2007. If convicted the man faces a maximum 18 years in jail. (theaustralian.news.com.au)

2005 Olympia, WA Wiccan Burt Stockstill, 33, recieved two life sentences for raping children. At the time of the trial the District Attorney's Office said Stockstill claimed he was a witch, made the children eat feces and raped the youngsters as part of his brand of the Wiccan sex ritual known as "the Great Rite". In what prosecutors called a bizarre case, Wiccan Michelle C. Littlefield (who recieved 25 years) allowed her children, now 6 and 9, to be raped and abused by her roommate, Burt Stockstill who had changed his name to "Eion Woodcraft" after becoming a Wiccan. The grandfather of one of the boys called Stockstill a monster who used Wicca, also called "white" witchcraft, as a catalyst to force bizarre acts on the boys. "This ritual is designed to do one thing: break down the inhibitions of all of those involved," the grandfather said. During the trial, both defendants took the stand in their own defense. Stockstill first denied practicingWicca, but then admitted to it on cross-examination. Blessed Be! (AP)

2005 Chicago, IL David Rodriguez, 18, was upset when his girlfriend dumped him. He decided the best way to win her back was with a Satanic ritual...yeah, forget all that candy and flowers junk. Rodriguez and a 15 y.o. Satanist friend kidnapped a 6 y.o. girl and an 8 y.o. boy outside a South Side library and intended to carve a pentacle on the girl's chest as part of a love spell to win back Rodriguez's girlfriend. Since they decided they only needed the 6 y.o. girl for the ritual, they let her brother go and he ran off and told people on the street about the kidnapping. Rodriguez took the girl to his house then headed out to the store to get some candles and incense for the ritual. The police busted in and got the girl out and then they arrested Rodriguez when he came home. Luckily the girl was unharmed. The love lorn magicians were charged with kidnapping. Ya know, I wonder why his girlfriend dumped him in the first place? (AP)

2005 Papua,New Guinea Pagan Raphael Kogun and his family murdered a middle-aged married couple who they were convinced had become possessed by evil spirits. In the highlands witches are known as "sangumas" and superstitous people think witches can assume the form not only of humans, but animals such as dogs, pigs, rats and snakes. A surge in the illegal growing of marijuana in the emerald green valleys has contributed to black magic paranoia, experts sa"We chopped their heads off with an axe and a bush knife," said the 27-year-old farmer from Goroka, in Eastern Highlands province. "I felt sorry for them but they were witches, they deserved to die. If they were still alive they could hurt people with their magic. We buried the bodies but then the police found out and started digging them up." Two of Kogun's brothers were arrested under the Act of Sorcery incorporated into PNG's criminal code, but the case collapsed because witnesses were too afraid to testify. The number of witch killings has been estimated at 200 a year in the neighbouring province of Simbu alone, although definitive figures are impossible to come by. A report by Amnesty International in September found there was a "conspiracy of silence" surrounding the murders. Belief in evil spirits is ubiquitous throughout Papua New Guinea, where ancestor worship and animism are still practiced. (ukcoalition.org)

2005 Cape Town, South Africa A church custodian was murdered in the dead of night and his mutilated corpse, bearing vicious stab wounds to his head and side mimicking those of Jesus Christ on the cross, is left in front of the altar. On the ground, in the victim's blood, is written the word "Satun" (sic). The Halloween slaying of 53-year-old Charles Jacobs, janitor at the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints in the quiet, church-going town of Paarl, east of Cape Town, was the latest in a long string of murders that reflect an obsession with Satanism that goes back deep into South Africa's apartheid past.

2005 Ponchatoula, LA Authorities arrested Daniel Edwards, a former "pastor" turned Satanist accused of leading a church group in "cult-like" rituals involving the sexual abuse of children and animals. Also arrested were eight other members of the cult. Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards said members of a Ponchatoula church carried out the practices for years as part of a devil-worshipping ritual involving cat blood. "This is hard to talk about and harder to believe, but some of the suspects have told us their intention in all of this was devil worshipping," Edwards said. "We know of one dog. That was a pet and the dog is dead now," Edwards said. The sheriff said one of the suspects had sex with that dog, and that blood from a cat was used in the cult's rituals. The dog and cat apparently were pets belonging to members of the church's congregation, he added.Edwards also said that the people involved in the cult reportedly had sex with children and animals from 1999 until the church disbanded in 2003. Edwards said the victims in the case range from toddlers to teenagers. A conviction on sex-abuse charges involving juveniles under age 12 can result in the death penalty. (AP)

2005 Toronto, Canada In June, Police arrested a self-proclaimed "psychic healer" named Alex Orbito, 66. A number of victims came forward to report that he "treated" 600 people in his Best Western Hotel room in Scarborough, Ontario, charging C$135 for two-minute "healing" treatments. He claimed that he could heal any illness by removing "negative energies" and performing psychic surgery. Orbito and an accomplice were arrested and charged with fraud over $5,000 and possession of proceeds of crime. (healthwatcher.net/Quackerywatch)

2004 Egg Harbor Township, NJ A woman found six beheaded birds while walking along the beach on 11-4-04. The six large birds (a goose, pheasant, chicken and other birds) were grouped in twos and all were facing in the same direction. The New Jersey Society for the Prevention and Cruelty to Animals is investigating. SPCA officials said they believe the birds were killed as part of a ritualistic sacrifice. "The location is right where the old Hutton mansion used to be and there had been a lot of reported devil worship and things like that going in there," said Rich Frank. The Hutton mansion was built in the 1920s. Heiress Barbara Hutton, who had been married to actor Cary Grant, allegedly held seances there. The mansion was torn down in 2002, but investigators said this latest animal sacrifice shows the lure of the mansion is still there. To date the case remains unsolved. SPCA investigators are asking anyone with information on the beheadings to call them at 609-927-9059.

2004, Columbia, SC- Wiccan Richard Legette shot and killed Chris Clark at the Lexington Green condominiums in an argument over a woman. Prosecutors at Legette's bond hearing said Legette is a Wiccan and that Wiccans don't believe the government of a Christian nation can dispense justice (apparently stemming from a comment Legette made). Legget's "fiance" said Legette is actually a Neopagan, NOT a Wiccan, (heavens, they wouldn't want to be one of THOSE weirdos!) and that what he was charged with had nothing to do with his beliefs. Apparently Legget's magic couldn't win his girlfriend or his freedom. (AP)

2004 Milan, Itlay A Satanist named Andrea Volpe (age 27) who lead a rock band called "The Beasts of Satan" was arrested along with two other band members for the murder of his girlfriend Elizabeth Ballarin (age 18) . Police discovered Volpe was also responsible for the murder of other band members: in 1998 of Fabio Tollis (age 16). It was also discovered the band members belonged to a Satanic cult called "The Beasts of Satan", the same name as the band. Police began to link Volpe's cult to several unexplained murders and questionable "suicides" that occured over the years in northern Milan. Volpe's girlfriend's murder, Chiara Marino, and had occured on a Friday the 13th during a full moon. Police also suspect the cult in other cases that were particularly baffling: two young men, at least one of them close to the alleged Satanists, both of whom worked in the Legnano cemetery and both of whom killed themselves in the past six months.Angelo Lombardo, 28, a guard at the cemetery, was the first to die. On a Sunday afternoon last December he went into the porter’s lodge at the cemetery, doused himself in petrol and set himself on fire. Visitors to the cemetery found him still in flames and writhing in agony. He was taken to hospital with 80 per cent burns but died four days later. Then, in May this year, his friend Luca Colombo, 21, a florist at the same cemetery, hanged himself from a tree in his parent’s garden. Before his death, Luca confided in friends and relatives that he was frightened. A local woman who claims to have been his girlfriend for five months told Corriere della Sera newspaper, “For the first three months he was happy, funny and very sweet. Then suddenly he changed. He wasn’t himself any more: nervous, bad tempered, always scowling … Just once he said that one day he would explain [the problem], but that moment never arrived.”He is known to have been friendly with some members of the sect, and particularly close to Nicola Sapone, the plumber who is thought to be its leader. As more evidence of the sect’s crimes emerged, people have began coming forward to denounce the police for failing to follow up satanic leads from years ago. Pasqualina Antonini, the mother of Chiara Marino, who died from stab wounds and whose remains were discovered earlier this month, has told reporters she gave police a full account of the Satanists she held responsible soon after her daughter’s disappearance more than six years ago.Volpe later plead guilty to his part in both murders of Tollis and Marino, and recieved 30 years. In 2006, Nicola Sapone, one of the leaders of the Beasts of Satan rock band, was sentenced to life behind bars for the double homicide. (telegraph.co.uk/news)

2004 Hopewell NJ Hopewell Township police think the human skull found in the Delaware River Nov. 22 may have been used in a Palo Mayombe ritual. Capt. George Meyer of the township police said Monday that the investigation has led authorities to believe the skull may have been a ceremonial artifact used in cult rituals by a Palo Mayombe priest. "According to experts we've contacted, the Palo Mayombe religion requires that such a skull be disposed of in a river, and in a way that seems related to the objects found with the skull," the captain said in a Hopewell Valley News article.

2004 Jenner, OH Christian camp counselors Jason Allen, 26, and his fiancee, Lindsay Cutshall, 22, spread sleeping bags on the sand of a secluded cove that locals refer to as Driftwood or Fish Head Beach. The young Ohio couple also placed a Bible near where they slept, and where ultimately they died as martyrs for Christ. The two had taken a vow of chastity until they were married and slept in seperate sleeping bags. That night someone emerged from the darkness and shot each of them once in the head. The devil drawings on a piece of driftwood seemed to indicate a Satanic murder. A local homeless man, Jeff Winkler, claimed he drew the devil picture weeks earlier, but did not kill them. He also said he "hated Christians", but was not a Satanist. The case may have been the work of occultists. At any rate, the case is still unsolved and was featured on America's Most Wanted.

2004 Pretoria, South Africa Satanist and Tatoo artist Robbie "Goggaman" Robbie Classen (38) recieved 60 years for multiple counts of rape, indecent assault and abduction on a girl aged 7 at the time and her 9 and 11 year old brothers. Classen claimed the children accusing him of sexual abuse confused him a look-a-like...extremely unlikely considering the unique tatoos covering his body. Classen's body was a mass of occult tattoos, including one on his penis. The victim's mother told authorities she had known it was there because the children had told her about it before she ever met Classen. Classen sodomised the boys, made the children eat insects, even injected one of the boys with his own blood, and tried to teach the children "astral projection", among other things. The girl claimed she was tied to a cross upside down and raped. Despite Classen's claims to innocence, medical evidence corroborated the children’s claims that they had been raped and sodomised. Classen had a long list of previous convictions for drug-related crimes and had spent time in jail for robbery.(theherald.co.za)

Tina Kish said she was shocked by what her daughters told her about the times they stayed with Fernandez, a family friend and baby sitter who also lives in the Park Ridge Apartment complex on Indianola Avenue. Kish said the girls told her that Fernandez served them alcohol, and got one of them drunk. The girls also said Fernandez taught them things about witchcraft, took them to an abandoned building Fernandez told them is haunted, and allowed one girl to cut herself as part of a blood ritual. Fernandez admitted she studies Satanism as a "religion", but denies she practices witchcraft. Fernandez admits she's a cutter, like many Wiccans and Satanists, it seems. "I had cut myself. I do that kind of out of habit now. And she just kind of copied me," Fernandez said. Fernandez also admitted to getting the kids drunk, "I had been drinking a little bit that night. And they pretty much wanted to try it, like kids always do," Fernandez said. However, she tried to explain away the Satanism part, I can completely understand the charges for distributing alcohol to a minor, and I will fess up to that, but anything else I completely do not understand," Fernandez said. Fernandez said she simply showed the girls the movie "Practical Magic," which is about witches, and the twin's Satanism claims are just "a misunderstanding". Eeeeeeyeah. (AP)

2003 North Carolina - Wiccan Janine Sutphen, 57, a cellist with the Durham North Cartolina Symphony Orchestra, became suspicioua of her husband's spending practices. She, along with Wiccan husband William James Petrick, were part of a polygamist marriage. Sutphen's remains turned up in North Carolina's Falls Lake in May 2003. Her body was wrapped up in sleeping bags and a chain was tied around her legs. The absence of apparent wounds led police to determine the cause of death was asphyxiation. Petrick rejected an initial plea deal to second-degree murder and fraud charges. But just before jury selection began in July in his fraud trial, he pleaded no contest to a single count of obtaining property by false pretenses and admitted to being a habitual felon.Sutphen's remains turned up in North Carolina's Falls Lake in May 2003. Her body was wrapped up in sleeping bags and a chain was tied around her legs. The absence of apparent wounds led police to determine the cause of death was asphyxiation. Following an investigation of the couple's home, Petrick was charged with multiple counts of fraud related to bogus checks, including one for $47,866 alone. Petrick dismissed his defense attorney and decided to represent himself, just like Ted Bundy and other psychotic killers have done in the past. He got life in prison. From this we can conclude 1. His money spells didn't work, which is why he had to steal. 2. His magic couldn't gain him his freedom 3. Criminal types are attracted to the occult. (AP)

2003 Pompano Beach,FL On 11-6-03 cops say Jean-Marie Jean-Francois beat his girlfriend Fritz-Anna to death as part of a well thought out plan. Jean-Francois had abused the woman throughout their relationship. Jean-Francois was a Voodoo practitioner, who had his own handwritten book of spells, and he was more than just a "dabbler". Jean-Francois led a double life; on the one hand, he seemed like a church going man, but police say nothing could mask his obsession with voodoo, seduction and pain. Jean-Marie Jean-Francois is still at large and could be hiding out among Florida's Hatian community, Canada, or Haiti. Anyone with any information should call law enforcement or 1-800-CRIME-TV.

On Halloween when the family received an anonymous “Friday the 13th” videotape depicting two sisters being killed. Fearful that David Lindensmith, 40, would kill them, the girls finally went to police and detailed a horrific story of molestationthat began in 1992 when they were 4 and 6 years old. The girls, now 14 and 16, told police Lindensmith pointed a pistol at them and threatened to kill them if they went to police. Genesee County Sheriff Robert J.Pickell said Lindensmith met the girls in 1992 when he became their mother’s boyfriend for a short time. A search of Lindensmith’s Bergin Avenue home turned up 300 DVDs and four computer hard drives with images of child pornography, Pickell said.

The pair offered psychic readings for as little as $10 but would then tell clients that additional sessions, ranging up to $20,000, were needed to drive away a curse or some negative spiritual force. One client told investigators that he gave Sonia Merino more than $518,000 in checks, a 1999 Volkswagen Beetle, a CD player and a personal computer over a three-year period after first going to her for a tarot card reading in 1996 after a failed romance. He says Sonia told him he needed a series of costlier sessions including a request for $750,000 to pay a group of psychics to conduct all-night meditations on his behalf. One victim was quoted in the affidavit as saying that Sonia Merino threatened to put a curse on her when she refused to pay several thousand dollars for a series of sessions. Another told of being badgered with phone calls every few hours throughout the night. In addition to mail fraud, Sonia and her husband Steve, 44, were charged with tax fraud for allegedly underreporting $750,000 in income from 1995 through 1999. Sonia Merino also sold clients what she described as "holy water" from the Vatican but analysis showed it was Manhattan Beach tap water, authorities said. Nasta Merino was accused of selling at least one person "holy water" from Ste.-Anne-de-Beaupre, a Catholic shrine near Quebec City, Canada, which is frequented by invalids seeking miracle cures. It, too, came from a local tap. (AP)

2002 Bochum, Germany A couple who killed a friend by stabbing him 66 times in a Satanic ritual were jailed in Jan. Daniel Ruda, a 26-year-old former car parts salesman, and his 23-year-old wife Manuela had confessed to the killing in their apartment, surrounded by human skulls, cemetery lights, scalpels and incense. The dead man, a 33-year-old colleague of Daniel Ruda's, was found in the couple's apartment covered in knife wounds and with a scalpel protruding from his stomach. A pentagram, the sign of the Devil, had been carved into his chest. A judge in the western town of Bochum sentenced Daniel to 15 years and Manuela 13 years in a psychiatric ward. Manuela, a former high school student who said she drifted into the "Gothic" scene after the devil contacted her when she was 14, slept in a coffin in their apartment. The court heard how Manuela acquired a taste for vampirism during a visit to London, where she attended "bite parties" at which people voluntarily had blood sucked from their veins. She met Daniel after responding to his advertisement in a heavy metal magazine that read: "Pitch black vampire seeks princess of darkness who hates everything and everyone."They have shown no remorse, saying the devil ordered them to send him a human sacrifice because he wanted a "court jester". Daniel said he had merely been a tool of the devil. "If you run someone over with a car, you don't prosecute the car," he said at one point.(serialkillercalendar.com)2002 Tucson, AZ Jason Paul Doty, the "Aryan Satanist" who murdered Grady Towers in March 2000, was found guilty on January 18, 2002. His sentencing hearing is coming up in a few weeks. He recieved 2 life sentences. His "spiritual war to purify the white race" prompted Doty to shoot a security guard at Tohono Chul Park and brag about the sacrifice to friends. Grady Mitchell Towers, 55, was killed because Doty, 29, needed to slay a white person on March 20, 2000—the Spring Equinox—to achieve magical powers, Deputy County Attorney Teresa Godoy told jurors. Jurors heard excerpts from letters Doty wrote to friends and from an "archive" he kept of his activities. "Violence is the law, death to the dove. Behold the terror in [Towers'] eyes," Godoy read from Doty's writings. He was shot 7 times; once in the upper chest, above the left eye, in the back of the head and all other shots were to the left side of the head—two shots against the head. The Satanist Doty also remains the primary suspect in the unsolved murder of Robin Hay, a mother of two who was brutally slashed to death in March 2000 at the eegee’s restaurant at Ina and Thornydale roads where she worked.

2002 Los Angeles, California The company that operated a telephone psychic line that saturated the airwaves with infomercials was brought to court by the Federal Trade Commisison for fraud. It seemed rather than give people a "free reading" as promised, the company (Psychic Friends Network) was charging folks a hefty $6.00 per minute (as much as Sprint charges for a call to Vietnam). One man sued after his "free" call cost him $300. Lady Cleo (who's real name is Youree Harris), the infomercial's star, had seemed to lose credibility with the public after failing to predict the terrorist attacks on the U.S.A. on 9-11-01. It also turned out the spokeswoman, "Lady Cleo", wasn't a Jamaican born psychic, but a Californian actress with a phony accent. Harris wrote a play called "Women Only" in which she cast herself as a Jamaican woman. This characther became the basis for her psychic Cleo charachter. In 2006 Harris apparently tried to gain some publicity by "coming out" and admitting she was a lesbian. The story only recieved coverage in a few gay newspapers and was largely ignored by the mainstream press. You don't have to be psychic to figure our her acting career is over. (Court TV)

2002 Leesberg, Virginia "Dr. Robert Schwartz, 57, was a founding member of the Virginia Biotechnology Association, and the Executive Director of Research and Development at Virginia's Center for Innovative Technology. In his farmhouse he was stabbed and slashed repeatedly with a sword and an 'X' was carved in the back of his neck . His daughter, who identifies herself as a Wiccan high priestess, and three of her fellow pagans have been charged." [Globe and Mail, 5/4/02] All were part of what they called a coven, and interested in magic, fantasy and self-mutilation. The police have no motive as to why they would have wanted to kill Schwartz, who was a single parent and said to be very close to his children. One of the Wiccan murderers, who has a history of mental illness, says he was given permission to kill Schwartz by "vampires and creatures named Ordog, Sabba and Nicodemus". Schwartz worked at Virginia's Center for Innovative Technology on DNA sequencing and pathogenic microorganisms. Despite wiccans always claiming how scientists endorse Wicca, I guarentee you one at least who wouldn't if he were still alive! (AP)

2002 Prince William County VA Russell John Smith a.k.a "Reverend Sorath." operated his own Satanic internet website called "The Order of Perdition", open to Satanists & "Left Hand Path Pagans." "Satanismallows for indulgence in life and its pleasures rather than abstinence, as Christianity preaches," Smith wrote on his website. Smith’s "indulgences" included talking 12year old girls into sex as part of a Satanic sex ritual. He was charged with rape and forcible sodomy of a child and was eventually sentenced to 48 years in prison. After allegations surfaced that Smith, 37, had repeatedly molested two girls, he resigned his job as a corrections officer and was on the lam, along with his 12 y.o. daughter. Police searched Smith’s home & found a goat skull with a pentagram drawn on it, black robes, black candles, young girls’ underwear. His spells couldn’t keep him out of jail, and he became America’s Most Wanted capture #720. Russell Smith tried to evade serving hard time by attempting to slash his wrists with a piece of tin foil from a juice carton. But a judge saw right though it and sentenced him to 48 years in prison. I guess his magic doesn't work either. The Order of Perdition "excommunicated" Smith, and stated on their website : "We ...DO NOT promote or have anything to do with Child Abuse, Animal Abuse or Animal Sacrifice, Illegal Substances, or ANY Criminal Activities what so ever." But even LaVey didn’t measure up to those standards in real life according to his family! The website is gone at this writing, and the order has apparently been disbanded. Perhaps eventually they’ll get tired of apologizing and realize Satanism is for criminals and ditch it. (America's Most Wanted)

2001 Moscow,Russia On Mar 18, Russian police arrested a self described Satanist who confessed to sacrificing four people in a basement in ritual Satanic slayings. A fire reported in the building led to the discovery. When fire fighters arrived at the scene, they found the decomposed bodies of two women and two men. Three of them had been decapitated and one man's chest was cut open. There were candles around the bodies, which were also decorated with flowers (Agence France Presse, Interfax)2001 London, England In Feb. Thelemite and jobless drifter Henry Bibby (alias Edward Crowley) was sentenced to life imprisonment at the Old Bailey for carrying out a Thelma ritual of child sacrifice on an innocent twelve-year-old victim. He had stabbed the boy, Diego Pineiro-Villar, over thirty times in Covent Garden, London, on 8 May 2000. Police found a bag that Bibby had kept with him. It contained a small number of legal documents about his change of name, and a chilling sketch that police believe was drawn a few weeks before the attack. Entitled Delendus Est Pineiro, which roughly translates as “destroy Pineiro,” the pencil diagram makes references to child sacrifice, black magic and Greek mythology. The symbols relate to quotations from Crowley’s works. There were a number of references to child sacrifice, including one from Aleister Crowley’s Magick in Theory and Practice that read, “For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.”. (BBC News)

With this and other charges, Settlemyer may face life in prison. Prosecutors claim that Settlemyer tried to convince someone he met on-line (who turned out to be an undercover FBI agent) to come to Louisiana to kidnap and rape three girls. Settlemyer had previously been convicted for kidnapping and attempted kidnapping. A California man, Chance Rearden, faces a number of charges related to an alleged attempt by Rearden to persuade Settlemyer to go to California to hunt, kidnap, rape, and kill children. Authorities claim that Rearden is an admitted neo-Nazi, Satanist, and white supremacist.

One of the police investigators quoted by Interfax news agency, said the murders appeared to have been committed by a Satanic cult judging by the way the bodies were mutilated and other evidence at the crime scene. At around 3.30 a.m on Saturday, the fire service received a phone call reporting a blaze in the basement of an apartment building in eastern Moscow, Police Lieutenant-Colonel Fyodor Agapov told Interfax.When fire fighters arrived at the scene, they found the decomposed bodies of two women and two men.

2001 Georgia Statewide Satanist Jay Scott Ballinger, 36, of Yorktown, Indiana, recieved a life sentnce for the torching of some 26 churches including 5 in Georgia, one of which killed a firefighter. It was the largest number of fires charged to one individual during the task force's nearly 3-year-old investigation, said Treasury Undersecretary James Johnson, the task force co-chairman. The task force has opened investigations of 752 church fires, bombings or attempted bombings and has charged 331 individuals in 249 of those attacks. Racial prejudice was not a motivation as Ballinger was "a white man charged with setting fire to predominantly white churches," Acting Assistant Attorney General Bill Lann Lee, task force co-chairman, said at a news conference at the Justice Department. Ballinger traveled with his girlfriend, Angela Wood, 24, of Atlanta, as she worked as a stripper in several states. Wood and another man, Donald A. Puckett, 37, of Lebanon, Ind., have told federal agents they took part with Ballinger in burning an Indiana church where they painted an upside-down cross on the steps as part of a Satanic ritual. Mostly unemployed since he settled back into his parents' rural home in 1990, Ballingerhad two scrapes with the law before the arson case. In 1994, he was cited for giving minors alcohol. That same year, parents complained he was recruiting teen-agers into a cult. At Ballinger's home, Daleville Police Sgt. Mark Brewer confiscated about 50 contracts signed in blood by teen-agers who agreed to give their souls to the devil and do "all types of evil" in exchange for wealth, power and sex. Ballinger was not charged and successfully sued to get the contracts back, Brewer said. Yeah, why that's religious persecution by the "evil xtians" against a harmless peace-loving Satanist!

2001 London, England Londoners were horrified by the sight of the dimembered corpse of a child floating down the River Thames in Sept. The child had been murdered as part of a Voodoo sacrifice. The child, called "Adam" by police, turned out to be a Nigerian national, and lead police to breaking up a major child trafficking ring, possibly saving many other West African children from a life of slavery, prostitution, child pronography...and even worse. Police say Adam had been earmarked for human sacrifice when he was smuggled into the UK. Richard Hoskins, a U.K.based expert on African religion and Voodoo, was called in on the case. He told reporters human sacrifice is a highly unusual aspect of black magic but that Nigerians themselves acknowledge that sacrificial killings often occur. He also added that Animal-blood offerings are deeply rooted in West African voodoo culture. It's regarded as a way to "communicate with the spirit world and gain protection from ancestral deities". To find out why and by whom, murder squad detectives traveled to Nigeria and the city of Benin. With the trafficking gang's ringleader now in jail, detectives remain hopeful that Adam's killers can finally be brought to justice. (BBC News)

2001 Dayton, OH Satanist Darrell W. Ferguson, 23, takes advatange of a 2-day pass to go on a crime and killing spree. While robbing people to fuel his huffing and crack habits, he brutally stabbed 61-year-old Thomas King Sr. in his Dayton home on Dec. 23, 2001, and stomped and kicked him with his steel-toed boots. A day later, he did the same to Arlie and Mae Fugate, aged 68 and 69. He left bloody impressions of his boot on the cheek of Mr. Fugate and on Mr. King's pants. DNA testing of his boots found probable blood matches for all three victims. Ferguson confessed to the crimes with graphic detail after his arrest and personally requested the death penalty in letters to the judge and prosecutor. "What I done is done and if I could bring them back I wouldn't,'' his letter to the judge read. "I have no Remorse for what I did.'' In prison he taunted the families of his victims during his sentencing hearing and posted poems and essays about his crimes and his Satanic beliefs on his personal web site (um, why are murderers allowed to have websites???). Ferguson refused to participate in his own clemency hearing, and volunteered to hasten his execution. He was executed in 2006. (AP)

2001 North Ft. Myers, FL The North Fort Myers woman who police say went on a bloody rampage Sept. leaving her 6-year-old son dead practiced Wiccan witchcraft and went by the name “Palm Frond.” Leslie Wallace, 39, studied the Wicca religion and kept recipes for death spells and ailments for enemies, according to reports made public. In her Book of Shadows she wrote “Society itself is full of bigotry toward witches and witchcraft...As it doesn’t deal with Christianity, it is feared and loathed. My goal is to better learn of the craft and to apply it to being a solitary Wicca.” Apparently this included murdering her kids. Yep, no better way to calm fears of irrational "xtians" like sacrificing your own offspring! According to police, Wallace deviated from the Wiccan rede (or maybe she just didn't think she was harming anyone) in September, when she killed her son James with a shotgun and tried to shoot her other two sons, including one whose life was literally saved by a Bible. [That noise you hear is Silver Ravenwolf grinding her teeth] After gunning down poor little James, Wallace drove to New Wine Ministries in North Fort Myers, where she tried to gun down her son, Kenneth, 16, sending a panic through the church (oh, you xtians are so prejudiced against Wiccans!). The boy’s life was spared when the shotgun blast hit a Bible he held in front of him. Police said she next went to a Pizza Hut in North Fort Myers where she tried to kill Gregory. But that attempt failed, too, when Wallace couldn’t get through the locked doors. The rampage ended in a gun battle with Lee County sheriff’s deputies on the Fort Myers side of the Caloosahatchee Bridge. After firing at deputies, Wallace was shot and critically wounded. Wallace, who was contemplating a divorce in the days before the shooting, is now in the Lee County Jail facing one count of first-degree murder, one count of attempted first-degree murder, four counts of aggravated assault and four counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer. Prosecution says it will seek the death penality. Her sister said in a statement that Leslie Wallace bragged about being bipolar and that the courts "wouldn’t do anything to her.” Blessed Be! At least James will be with Jesus after the Ressurection, where witches can't hurt him. (USA Today)

2001 Llanfairpwll on Anglesey,Wales 17 y.o. paperboy Mathew Hardman is found guilty and recieves a life sentence for murdering his 90 year old neighbor Mabel Leyshon. Hardman denied all the charges and allegations,but DNA found at the murder scene matched that of blood found on a knife at Hardman's home. Hardman was obsessed with vampires and the occult, and had told others he wanted to kill someone "in order to become immortal". In Nov. of '01, he broke into her house, stabbed her 22 times and drank her blood as part of an occult ritual. he also mutilated her body before placing pokers at her feet in the shape of a cross. Her heart had been removed, wrapped in newspaper and placed in a saucepan on a silver platter next to her body. Prosecution said the murder was carefully planned. Two months before Mrs Leyshon's murder, Hardman had accused a 16-year-old German girl of being a vampire. Claiming she was "one of them", he begged the student to bite his neck so that he too could become a vampire. When she refused, he became violent and began insisting, pressing his neck against her mouth. Eventually the girl had to summon help. The prosecution also outlined how Hardman had surfed the internet for vampire websites and had read a magazine which featured an article on how to conduct a black mass (btw, is that how you got here?). Kids, there are no real vampires, and vampires are evil. Evil is not something you want. If you want to be a vampire, please see the LINKS page on this website to find help (BBC News)

2001 Las Vegas, NV Wiccan Brookey Lee West was arrested for slaying her mother, while continuing to collect her mother's Social Security checks. In 1998 West told acquaintances that she sent her elderly mother to live with West's brother in California. Some doubted her story and suspected foul play, but three years came and went before their suspicions were confirmed. In February 2001, authorities found Smith's body sealed in a plastic garbage can inside a Las Vegas storage unit. The can had sprung a leak, and the overpowering stench from the liquefied remains led to the discovery of the secret tomb. Next to the garbage can, investigators found books on Wicca and the occult, including a handwritten Book of Shadows written in Thebes. Police would connect Smith to several murders throughout her life. Author Scott Mitchell later remarked, "She just got overconfident," he said. "She got away with so much for so long, she just became a little too casual."Smith was a "gernerational witch". Her father, Leroy Smith, had also been a practioner of Wicca and also a white supremacist. The crimes are detailed in the book, Witch: The True Story of Las Vegas's Most Notorious Female Killer. The family's occult links showed themselves in the mid-1980s, when West was embroiled in a custody dispute with the father of her 8-year-old daughter. West wanted to give the girl up for adoption, but the father, Ronald Viramontes, refused to sign away his parental rights. In the middle of the dispute, Leroy Smith sent Viramontes a threatening letter that included pentagrams and satanic curses. Four days after the letter arrived, a masked man knocked on Viramontes' door and shot his 86-year-old grandmother in the chest. She survived, and the case remains unsolved. "She had a history, along with her father, of trying to eliminate people when they got in their way," Clark County prosecutor Scott Mitchell said of Brookey Lee West. "Once you showed yourself to be in opposition to anything Brookey Lee West wanted to do, your life was in danger." Blessed Be!

Then he throttled her with a shirt, before carrying the 21-year-old upstairs and raping her. Cullen claimed the incident started over an argument about the T.V. show,Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Cullen was jailed for five years in 1990 for arson and possession of a firearm, and again in 1993 for indecent assault and threats to kill. He had told the woman victim in the indecent assault case about his devil worship, and claimed to have sacrificed dogs in rituals because the species’ name was God spelt backwards.

2001 Madrid, Spain In December, police disrupted a Satanic ritual in progress with the participants performing Satanic rites using dissected eagles, goats and entrails. The Satanists escaped by clambering out through the roof, leaving the officers to examine blood-splattered walls on which was written "Satan will conquer" and in various places the number 6. Police were dispatched after people complained about the noise from a disused slaughterhouse in a suburb of the week prior, leading to the raid. A neighbour said: "They were kicking up a lot of noise and had prepared a fire." Police are worried that they had also used bottles of diseased sliced pig, jars of animal remains and chemicals that were left in cupboards at the abattoir when it closed two years ago. "We are particularly concerned about containers labelled 'porcine disease'," an officer said. Eagles are a protected species in Spain, and use of protected birds by Satanic sects is being investigated by police. (Telegraph News)

Default Saying Hitler was a christian (OCCULT CRIME)

Hitler...a Christian?

A HYMN OF THE HITLER YOUTH:

"NO EVIL PRIEST CAN PREVENT US FROM FEELING

THAT WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF ADOLPH HITLER

AWAY WITH THE INCENSE AND HOLY WATER

THE SWASTIKA BRINGS SALVATION ON EARTH"



There is one myth we need to debunk that's a favorite nowadays of not only occultniks and Neopagans, but all haters of Christianity. One favorite rant I often hear from Wiccans and Neopagans and others is that "Hitler was a Christian!", and thus all Christians should be lumped together with him (which is the kind of reasoning bigots use). I have even heard this lie repeated by Christian ministers who should know better!

A variation of this idea was that Hitler was a Catholic, and the Holocaust was yet another "pogrom" that Hitler carried out by order of the Vatican (!). People who believe this stuff should be careful the squirrels don't bury them. While it is true that Hitler was baptized a Roman Catholic as an infant and even claimed he considered the priesthood as a young man, but this does not mean he held these beliefs all his life. If you count Hitler being a Christian in his youth, then you would have to count most Wiccans, Satanists, Scientologists, etc., as Christians since many of them come from Christian backgrounds as well.

Hitler was born in 1889 in Austria, and was indeed baptized a Roman Catholic as a baby, but as he got older, he abandoned his Christian faith. But so that he could win the German people to his way of thinking, he kept up the pretense of being a Christian when he became "Der Fuhrer".


Despite the belief by many pagans and even many Christians alike, Hitler was NOT a Christian. Hitler despised Jews and anything remotely Jewish and so naturally he despised Christianity. Hitler once said in a speech that "Christianity is the greatest trick the Jews every played on humanity". Does this sound like something a Christian would say??? Even though there are some neo-Nazi groups that claim to be "Christian" it doesn't make them so. You can claim to be a bullfrog and even go so far to paint yourself green, but it doesn't make you a bullfrog. In fact, had such "Nazi-Christian" groups existed in Hitler's Germany they would have surely been liquidated after the war. There was to only be one religion in the new Germany had Hitler won, and that religion would have been a state-run version of the Neopagan religion called Odinism.



There are statements Hitler made that could lead one to the conclusion Hitler was a Christian, but only if you're Naive. For instance, in Mein Kampf, Hitler wrote:

"Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord." (Mein Kampf Pg 33, English Translation)

"The National Government will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation was built up. They regard Christianity as the foundation of our national morality and the family as a basis of national life." (Hitler to the German People: Feb. 1 1933).

So Hitler not only tried to make himself sound like a Christian, and even tried to make anti-Semitism sound like a Christian cause. When reading such statements, people must use common sense (if you don’t possess any, please get some). First of all, Mein Kampf was not meant to be a book of factual statements, but instead meant to be a sort of sales brochure for evil. After all, Hitler never said "I plan to kill all the Jews in the whole world and get Germany in another world war! I will also kill anyone I don’t like, including Freemasons, handicapped people, Trade Unionists, or Jehovah’s Witnesses. I’ll make soap and dog food out of them in concentration camps. After that, I will eliminate Christianity altogether and replace it with a nationalistic Neopagan religion. Whoever defies me will be killed!".

But these are exactly the things he was planning while he was writing Mien Kampf. He couldn't tell people all his crazy schemes or what he really thought or he never would have come to power. Common sense can detect this is true.

Hitler’s Views on Christianity: The Facts

Let's look at a few things before you decide Hitler was a Christian. Here are some quotes which show what Hitler really thought of Christianity from the people that were in his inner circle:

"Christianity is an invention of sick brains...The war will be over one day. I shall then consider that my life's final task will be to solve the religious problem." [Hitler’s Table Talk, p. 142-4]

"Christianity is the biggest lie the Jews ever told humanity"

-- Adolf Hitler, 13 December 1941.

"So it's not opportune to hurl ourselves now into a struggle with the Churches. The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death," -- Adolf Hitler, 14 October 1941.

"When National Socialism has ruled long enough, it will no longer be possible to conceive of a form of life different from ours. In the long run, National Socialism and religion will no longer be able to exist together…The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity. Bolshevism is Christianity's illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew. The deliberate lie in the matter of religion was introduced into the world by Christianity." [Hitler's Table Talk, p. 6-7]

"Christianity is a rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure." [p. 51]

"Christianity, of course, has reached the peak of absurdity in this respect. And that's why one day its structure will collapse. Science has already impregnated humanity. Consequently, the more Christianity clings to its dogmas, the quicker it will decline."[Hitler's Table Talk, pp 58-62]

"Hitler usually concluded this historical speculation by remarking 'You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been much more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness?'" [Speer, Albert, Inside the Third Reich, Bonanza Books, New York, p. 96]

"The reason why the ancient world was so pure, light and serene was that it knew nothing of the two great scourges: the pox and Christianity." [Hitler's Table Talk, p. 75]

"The Jew who fraudulently introduced Christianity into the ancient world----in order to ruin it----re-opened the same breach in modern times, taking as his pretext the social question. Just as Saul became St. Paul, Mardochai has become Karl Marx." [p. 314]

People who want to paint Hitler as a Christian (including some Neo-Nazis) state the above claims come mainly from the" recollections" of his followers and therefore may not be true, and then brainlessly fall back on quotes from Mien Kampf to paint Hitler as a Christian. But as we see, there are too many of these "recollections"(and from people who were closest to him no less) for it to not accurately reflect what Hitler thought about the Christians. Who would better know what Hitler really thought than the people closest around him? This may come as a shock for the more naive readers, but Adolph Hitler was not well known for his truth telling abilities! Mein Kampf is a book of lies. Are we also to believe the other things written in Mein Kampf, including German racial superiority, and an international conspiracy of Jews taking over the world? Hitler, like any dictator, lied to suit the situation as he saw fit.

Germany’s population followed the Christian religion, and Hitler knew that he needed the support of Christians, or else he would not be supported as the undisputed leader of Germany. Hitler merely claimed to be a Christian solely for political purposes. Albert Speer, the architect and weapons procurer for the Third Reich reveals why Hitler did not immediately gas Christians in the death camps. Albert Speer noted in his memoirs, " Around 1937, when Hitler heard the at the instigation of the party and the SS vast numbers of his followers had left the church because it was obstinately opposing his plans, he nevertheless ordered his chief associates Goering and Goebbels, to remain members of the church. He too would remain a member of the Catholic Church, he said, although he had no real attachment to it. And in fact he remained in the church until his suicide." [ Inside The Third Reich by Albert Speer Pg. 146]

Default Hitler was a christian, occult crime part 2

A person claiming they have "no real attachment" to the church is not a Christian! A person who uses church membership to further aims of world domination is not a Christian! Just going to church does not make one a Christian, going into a chicken coop does not make one a chicken! The enemies of the Christian religion try to paint Hitler as a Christian to detract from it. When Christians see such claims, we must fight back through the courts. We cannot allow these lies to continue.

Far from embracing Christianity, the Nazi’s, in fact, instituted a policy known as "Kircenkampf" (literally meaning "against the Church"), which was a campaign against the churches, both Roman Catholic AND protestant. The plan was to gradually eliminate Christianity and replace it with Odinism! The plan was not publicly announced, but the signs of it were obvious, and certainly Hitler’s inner circle knew of Kircenkampf. For some Nazis, Kircenkampf wasn’t going fast enough. Martin Bormann was one such Nazi who would have loved to have eliminated Christianity before the war ended.

"In Bormann’s mind, the Kirchenkampf, the campaign against the churches, was useful for reactivating party ideology which had been lying dormant. He was the driving force behind this campaign, as was made time and time again made plain around our round table. Hitler was hesitant, but only because he would rather postpone this problem to a more favorable time. Here in Berlin, surrounded by male cohorts, he spoke more coarsely and bluntly than he ever did in the midst of his Obersalzberg entourage. ‘Once I have settled my other problems,’ he occasionally declared, ‘I’ll have my reckoning with the church. I’ll have it reeling on the ropes." [Inside the Third Riech by Albert Speer pg 147]

Clearly Hitler and the Nazi high command wanted to eliminate all Christian Churches. It was not really a question of "if" but "when". Neopagans like Bormann wanted it done immediately, but Hitler wanted to wait until he had won World War II, and then with the world conquered. Hitler knew he needed people to fight for him, and he had to pay lip service to the church until his aims were met, and then he could destroy it. Hitler’s hatred for Judaism and all things Jewish was all consuming, so the tyrant, any Christian church was just another form of Judaism.



IF HITLER WAS A CHRISTIAN, WHY DID HE SURROUND HIMSELF WITH PEOPLE INTO ODINISM AND THE OCCULT LIKE RUDOLPH HESS AND HIMMLER? WHY DID HITLER USE PAGAN RUNE SYMBOLS THROUGHOUT THE NAZI EMPIRE RATHER THAN CHRISTAN ONES? TO SEE THE PAGAN AND RUNE SYMBOLS USED BY NAZI GERMANY CLICK HERE.



New Evidence Discovered

In 2001 new documents from the Nuremberg trials were declassified and released to the public by Rutgers Law School that do indeed confirm Hitler was going to eradicate Christianity after the war had he won. The documents including original handwritten notes, appear on the web site of the Rutgers University School of Law in New Jersey in the United States. General William J Donovan, an investigator at the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg after World War II compiled The 148 volumes of material. According to Julie Seltzer Mandel in an interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer, "A lot of people will say, 'I didn't realize that they were trying to convert Christians to a Nazi philosophy...[the Nazis] wanted to eliminate Jews altogether, but they were also looking to eliminate Christianity."

The first installment, entitled "The Nazi Master Plan; The Persecution of Christian Churches", describes how the Nazis planned to replace Christianity with a religion based on racial superiority and the worship of Germanic gods like Thor and Odin. The report, prepared by the O.S.S. ( the forerunner of the CIA) states: "Important leaders of the National Socialist party would have liked... complete extirpation of Christianity and the substitution of a purely racial religion...The best evidence now available as to the existence of an anti-Church plan is to be found in the systematic nature of the persecution itself...Different steps in that persecution, such as the campaign for the suppression of denominational and youth organizations, the campaign against denominational schools, the defamation campaign against the clergy, started on the same day in the whole area of the Reich...and were supported by the entire regimented press, by Nazi Party meetings, by traveling party speakers"

Eradicating Christianity is definitely not the actions of a Christian! In fact, Hitler was not a Christian at all, and I think that point is clear now (except to those who want to cling to conspiracy theories). Hitler's hatred of Jews was all consuming. He saw Christianity as just another "Jewish cult". It is true that he considered Jews a "race" rather than a religion, but his hatred for Christians seemed only slightly less. But unlike something genetic, a person's religion can be changed. So the Nazis would have used great coercion to stop the Christian faith, and would have executed the remainder who refused. Thank God Hitler lost I am not sitting here writing this as an Odinist. Wait a second, why would I be writing this as an Odinist?

I guess I wouldn’t be !

And thank God for brave men like my late father, a PFC in the 3rd Army Rangers, who fought against the Nazi Pagan devils. They knew the Holocaust really happened because they saw it.




ADOLPH HITLER (1889-1945) Hitler’s name doesn’t spring to mind when one thinks of an occultist, but some occultists consider him to have had occult powers, so I'll mention him. Hitler might have been an Odinist (worshiper of false Viking gods like Thor, Odin, and Freya), or possibly just an atheist who dabbled in the occult, but at any rate, he obviously wasn’t a Christian. Some occultists consider him an "ascended master" or even an "avatar" (incarnated god). Hitler wanted to exterminate the Jews and eventually replace Christianity with Germanic paganism, and this much is certain.

Whatever Hitler’s religious beliefs were, we can certainly rule out his being a Christian. In 1996 documents from the Nuremberg Trial were discovered detailing the Nazi’s systematic persecution of Christian Churches and Hilter’s plans to eliminate Christianity altogether after WWII. An American General detailed the accounts given to him by former Nazi leaders of Hitler’s “Kirchenkampf” plans which comprise no less than 150 volumes of Nuremberg Trial documents alone! Even though Hitler may have written and said things at times to make him sound Christian, such as things he said in Mein Kampf, it should be remembered Mien Kampf is political propaganda and not to be taken at face value. Mein Kampf also doesn’t mention Hitler’s plans for the Holocaust, either. Ruteger’s Journal of Religion and Law has made those Nuremberg documents available to read online (need URL).

There have been may spurious accounts about Hitler and the Nazis, the occult being one subject. A book published in 1973 called The Spear of Destiny claimed Hitler was a Satanist obsessed with a legendary spear thought to have pierced the side of Christ. It also claims Hitler was a blood drinking Satanist who traveled to India and joined the cult of Kali. These, and many other bizarre stories are untrue. But there is no doubt that Hitler, Hess and Himmler were all involved in the occult to varying degrees, nonetheless.

There are many claims that Hitler belonged to various occult societies that combined racism and right wing politics with ritual magic. It’s possible some of the groups claimed to be interested in the occult as a smokescreen to hide their political aims. Besides the Thule, one group that Hitler also supposedly belonged to was called the New Order of Templars. The society was created by Georg Liebenfels in 1909, and combined the legends of the Templars with Aryan supremacy. There is at least one verified record of Hitler visiting Liebenfels, and it could certainly be there was a working relationship between the two. Liebenfels wrote to a disciple in a letter in 1932 “Hitler is one of our pupils.” and promised that through Hitler they would “make the whole world tremble”. They did, but the end results were probably not as he and Hitler would have hoped.

A Look magazine issue of 1940 mentions Hitler had his own observatory and practiced astrology, although Hitler said it was merely just for fun. The words “Hitler” and “fun” don’t exactly go together, and realizing some of the people trafficked with, it was probably more than for amusement purposes. Hitler’s superstition became so well known, that even The Three Stooges made a short that same year that mocked Hitler’s belief in astrology (and also mocked Hitler himself, of course! Soitenly!). When British Intelligence discovered Hitler’s interest in star gazing, they hired an astrologer named Pohl to try to figure out what Hitler’s astrologers were telling him. When asked about a British invasion, Pohl told Churchill he personally had known all the astrologers advising Hitler, and that they all had advised him against it. He was apparently right, since no dreaded invasion of Britain ever took place.

The Nazis attitude toward astrologers was ambivalent. On the one hand, they outlawed fortunetellers and astrologers, but quietly employed some of them for official party business. Hitler hired an astrologer and hypnotist named Hume to teach him about mass psychology and hypnosis. It’s believed Hume taught him the strange hand gestures that you often see used by Hitler during speeches in newsreels. Hume opened a seance parlor called “Castle of The Occult”. He had the room bugged with microphones to pick up conversations before the seances to fool people into thinking he had occult powers. He seemed to have predicted the Reischtag fire, perhaps because he played some part in it, or because the Nazis had told him about it, or he picked up plans for it during a bugged conversation. He was murdered 6 weeks later by the Berlin police, no one knows for sure why, but it’s generally thought the Reischtag fire had something to do with it. It may have been because his Jewish parentage finally came to light, or perhaps his microphones had been discovered, or it may have been because the Berlin Chief of Police was indebted to him for a large amount of money. At any rate, Hitler’s astrologer didn’t see it coming!

Default Hitler was a christian, occult crime part 3

The Nazis belief in astrology was so strong they were even willing to risk a U-Boat and it’s crew for a simple dime store farmer’s almanac. In 1942, German spies were sent by U-Boat to North Carolina to buy a copy of The Old Farmer’s Almanac, believing it had the most accurate weather forecasts in the world (even though this has been proven not to be the case in scientic studies) They were promptly captured in the attempt of trying to buy a copy. Uncle Sam banned publication of all such almanacs until the end of WWII to discourage future attempts.

Occultism and quack science seem to go hand in hand, and not surprisingly quack sciences flourished under Hitler. Hoebinger was a mechanic who created a theory of “Fire and Ice” to explain the creation of the universe. His theory was that the moon was made of ice, and that planets were created when huge globes of ice collided with the sun. The current moon is the fourth such ice globe to be the earth’s satellite, and would plunge to earth in 1000 years, creating another deluge. This is supposedly why Hitler said the Third Reich would last 1000 years. Scientists were forced to accept this bizarre and unscientific Fire and Ice theory which Hitler favored as an alternative to what he called “Jewish science”. Hilter liked Hoebinnger so much, that Hoebinnger is the only person known to have told Hilter to shut up while he was talking...and live! Hoebinnger died in 1933, but a group of psudeo-scientists he assembled while alive continued to advise the Nazis. “The Hoebinngers” as they were known wrongly predicted a mild winter for Russia in 1942 which resulted in disaster for Germany when their troops experienced a sub-arctic nightmare. The winter was so cold gun powder wouldn’t ignite. Hoebinnger believed the earth was merely a hollow globe and the Nazis experimented on a crazy scheme to create a radar system based on the idea. It failed to work, since the earth isn’t hollow.

During WWII, the Germans became perplexed as to why the British were so good at finding and destroying their U-Boats and ships. They somehow drew the bizarre conclusion that the British were using psychics with pendulums swinging over maps (used sort of like divining rods) to do this. It didn’t occur to them, thank goodness for the world, that the British had in fact captured a German code machine (called an Enigma machine). The pendulum diviners were employed with Hitler’s approval, but did absolutely nothing to help locate British ships.

Hitler started out at the beginning of WW2 with the world's largest army while America had the 16th largest. His ally Japan, a nation of adherents to the Shinto religion who are goddess worshipers (not unlike Wiccans)decimated America's navy with the attack on Pearl Harbor. Although Mussolini was an atheist who only paid lip service to the Vatican to keep up appearances, the Fascists had occultist supporters like the Baron Julius Cesare and Andrea Evola, who wanted Italy to return to Roman paganism. Spain was yet another powerful ally to Hitler. Germany was way ahead in atomic bomb research at the beginning of the war.

In theory, Hitler should have won WW2 based on his resources, and in fact Germany was winning the war in the beginning.. But instead of course, Germany lost WW2, with Hitler biting on a cyanide capsule while simultaneously pulling the trigger of gun pointed at his head. Germany, Italy, and Japan lay in ruins. Spain had backed out of WWII declaring itself neutral and depriving Hitler of any help it might bring. Hitler’s name is the most reviled in history. So much for Odin! The occult didn’t help the evil Hitler, nor will it help anyone else. As a final act, Hitler committed suicide on April 30th...the Neopagan holiday of Walpurgisnacht. Some people speculate this date was chosen due to some kind of occult belief. Could Hitler have offered himself as a sort of human sacrifice to Germanic Pagan gods as a last desperate attempt to win the war? If so, this last magical act also failed.

Adolph Hitler; a failure and the most despised man to have ever lived.



HEINRICH HIMMLER Occultist chicken farmer who became an infamous mass murderer. Himmler was an early member of the Nazi Party who rose in rank to become the second in command of Hitler’s Reich. He was a devout student of the occult, in particular of Madame Blavatsky’s Theosophy, as well as astrology, spiritualism, and herbalism. Himmler headed the Nazi shock troops known as the SS during the Nazi regime. Himmler was obsessed at finding the occult origins of the “Aryan race”, and created a department called the Annenahbe to investigate and catalog every piece of folklore and superstition on the German speaking people. Himmler had 63 million dollars spent to restore the Welwelsburg Castle...an outrageous sum of money...just because he thought it was built on the site of a pre-Christian Saxon fort. It became the headquarters for the SS, and a Mecca of sorts for a future Germanic Neopagan/occult religion (some occult nuts even make visits there even today). The SS headquarters was a literal temple to German racism, and contained a library of an estimated 10,000 books of the occult, folklore, and anything having to do with Germany.

Himmler claimed he talked to the ghost of Henry the Folwer each night, who would appear at his bed. On the 1000th anniversary of Henry the Folwer’s birth, Himmler had Fowler’s remains re-enterred with much pomp and ceremony. Himmler also claimed to be the reincarnation of Henry the Folwer. It’s a head scratcher to wonder how he thought he was able to talk to his own ghost.

Himmler despised the Jesuits (since they were Christians) but oddly enough patterned the SS after them in some ways. Himmler intended to replace Christianity with Germanic Neopaganism with SS officers to act as sort of like High Priests for this new Neopagan religion. SS officers were even to preside over weddings. Hitler once remarked “After I die Himmler will probably make me into some kind of SS Saint. Can you believe it? Ridiculous! We should have just stayed with the Christians. At least they had a sense of order.” [emphasis mine to show Hitler and the Nazis had abandoned Christianity]

Himmler’s bizarre occult beliefs became the basis for many Nazi policies. SS officers were encouraged to copulate with women in German cemeteries in hopes the ghosts of German soldiers would be reincarnated into the babies from said unions. A German occultist named Karl Maria Wiligut (1866-1946) said he could psychically trace a German’s family tree back 280,000 years by psychic means, and that the Earth once had four moons and three suns. Wiligut claimed his own family line started when the gods of the sea mated with the gods of the air. Himmler immediately made this crackpot an SS Colonel! In 1938 Colonel Wiligut was forced to retire after it came to light he had once been committed to an insane asylum in 1924 after he was diagnosed as a schizophrenic! Surviving records indicate Himmler dispatched SS personnel to investigate such superstitious things as why crows linger at funerals than other birds (no one could find out, since they actually don’t).

When Germany’s fall was apparent, Himmler secretly tried (unsuccessfully) to negotiate a surrender deal with the allies. An aide implored him not to discuss occult subjects with his contact, a Dutch Barron. But Himmler, the original occult geek, lectured the poor man for an hour to the similarities to Germanic runes and Japanese pictographs as evidence that both Germans and Japanese were Aryans.

When Germany fell to the Alies in 1945, Himmler tried to escape wearing a Private’s uniform but his occult powers must have been on the blink or something, because he was captured and recognized almost immediately. He committed suicide during an interrogation by biting down on a suicide capsule he concealed in his mouth. Despite the supposed occult power the Nazis had, it did nothing for them. Germany laid in ruins, and the Nazis became the most despised villains in history.

Himmler’s son later described in the decades after the war the bizarre and Satanic things his father did, including having furniture made from human bones. Even he is perplexed by his father’s ghoulish appetites. He has not followed in his father’s footsteps, and is a Lutheran minister!

Hienrich Himmler; an occult geek and failure. One of the most reviled mass murders of history.

Default Hitler was a christian, occult crime part 4

RUDOLPH HESS Early Nazi party member who became Deputy Fuherer. Hess is best remembered for his bizarre attempt to win Great Britain on the side of the Axis that ended in his imprisonment.
Hess had been a member of the Thule Society, and was said to daily consulted astrologers and fortunetellers for advice. Hess became convinced by a psychic that Britain had to enter World War II on the Axis side for Germany to win. He thought he could convince the British to join the Axis, and flew a plane to Scotland on a mission to win them over...obviously not very likely. Hess failed in his mission and was immediately captured by a pitchfork wielding farmer upon his arrival!

Hitler was furious when news of Hess’s capture reached him. It’s said Hitler read a letter Hess left him, and though the contents aren’t known, Hitler immediately had all astrologers, fortune tellers , and psychics arrested in Germany after that incident, suggesting the letter was about an astrological or psychic prediction that precipitated Hess’ flight. Hess sat out the war in prison, and was later sentenced to life imprisonment during the Nuermberg War Crime Trials. Hess spent the rest of his life in Spandau Prison, and for many years was it’s only resident. He attempted suicide on several occasions, and finally succeeded in 1989 at the age of 90. From his capture in 1938 to his suicide in 1989, Hess spent more of his life imprisoned than he did free. In his suicide note he told his wife he had pretended to be insane, hoping he could gain his release. His plan failed, and it must have been enough to drive someone mad, having to pretend for 50 years to be crazy! The occult didn’t work for Hess, and it won’t work for anyone else.

Rudolph Hess Nazi war criminal, prisoner most of his life, and ultimate failure who committed suicide.

Odinists: The Racist Pagans


Perhaps the most frightening branch of the Neopagan movement is Odinism (also called Asatru or Wotanism). Odinists worship the Germanic/Viking gods of pre-Christian times, like Odin, Thor, Freya, and Tiews. In other words, their religion is Viking mythology. Odinists have little use for Christians either. However they are probably much more vocal in their detest for the Christian faith than are other Neopagans.

Odinism is a reconstructionist Pagan movement. By 1000 A.D., the Kings and leaders of Scandinavia officially rejected Paganism and officially endorsed Christianity as the official religion. Because of the remoteness of some areas, it is believed not to have been abandoned as quickly as in other parts of Europe. It seems to have limped on for a while in very remote parts of Europe, but was basically extinct in Europe by 1200 A.D. Sure, a few superstitions lived on from Paganism, but the Pagan religions were gone. Odinism did not survive into modern times in tact, but bits and pieces of spells remained among superstitious folks. With Nazi Germany’s renewed interest in Paganism, there was a revival in Odinism. A few people (neo-Nazi types) were interested in Odinism after the fall of Germany. In the late 1960's and early 1970's, Odinism began to grow again in Europe and America. Like other Neopagans, Odinists invent rituals and material for spells when needed. In 1972 Iceland recognized Nordic Paganism as a legal religion.

What makes this aspect of the Neopagan movement so disturbing is that it is comprised of almost entirely of white supremacists. Not all Odinists are white supremacists, and there is (or was) at least one group that even go so far as to insist their priests perform gay marriages. It’s hard to say how many Odinists are gay or non-white, but so far I have found...none. There are some members of the Ku Klux Klan that claim Odinism as their faith, but these types usually prefer psudeo-Christian cults like "Christian Identity" (which isn’t really Christian, and an identity no rational person would want.) One of the non-racist Odinist types I made contact with lived in New Zealand, who’s Odinist name was "Nik". Nik feels that there is room for non-racists in Odinism, "Odin is also the God of Knowledge and Wisdom. Racism is illogical, therefore Odin does not approve of racism." But Nik also told me that indeed, the majority of Odinists were white supremacists, and just a handful of Odinists were non racist. In an email Nik told me "These days, I refrain from using the term ‘Odinist’ to refer to myself but I prefer the phrase ‘Odin Devotee’ as Odin is indeed the deity I feel closest too but I do not wish to be associated with those white power types." One wonders why Nik would even bother to be in a movement that is completely dominated by people he finds repulsive.

Odinist Theology

Odinism is polytheistic, and believes in many gods and goddesses. They do not believe in an all supreme being, but believe in a pantheon of gods and goddesses that are little more than glorified human beings. Their gods get drunk, get in fights, rape, pillage, and plunder. Odinist do not see themselves as subservient to their gods, but more like equals. In Asatru it is believed human beings are literally genetically related to them. The Eddas (Norse mythology) tell of a god called Rig, who went to various farmsteads and sired the human race. Odinists think they that are literally related to the gods they worship. From what I have read there are also Odinists who don’t believe the stories of the gods and goddesses were real, but that thhey have can learn from the lessons.

The Judeo-Christian God and His son Jesus are despised by Odinists. Commenting on Jesus, an Odinist I spoke with whom we will call Joseph says, "Jesus was nothing but a Jewish carpenter that got nailed to a two by four. Jesus is a myth and some people are stupid enough to believe it. The only person I can believe that was Christ is Adolf Hitler. I know he was real and he spoke the real truth. Mein Kampf is my Bible."

Hitler was no Christian. HE WAS AN ODINIST (PAGAN)!

Default Satanists and the Salem witch trials

THE SALEM WITCH TRIALS
(NOTE: Wicca isn't Satanism and Wiccans don't believe in Satan. Since I know this, thanks for not emailing me and telling me what I already know.)

The Salem Witch Trials

I have read on some webpages (chances are you have too) about "hundreds of witches being burnt at Salem" or words to that effect. The truth is 28 people died during the trials, and none were burned. True, even 1 was one person too many, but the people of Salem were under the effects of ergotism, and could not be held responsible for what they did.
The 28 people who died during the Salem Witch trials are viewed by Wiccans to be like religious Martyrs. This is especially ironic since not one of them was a Wiccan! We have to remember the people executed in Salem Village were not Wiccans. Wicca was invented in 1950 in England by Gerald Gardner,a follower of Aleister Crowley. No Book of Shadows was found during the Salem Witch trials, and there is no mention of "Wicca" "Cernuous", or "Diana" in any of the historical documents from that era. There is also no description of any rituals taking place that resemble Wicca. None. In other words...no Wiccans were executed during the Salem Witch Trials, period! They couldn't have, since Wicca didn't exist until the 20th century, which we will read about a little later. But nevertheless, searching for books on the subject of Wicca on Amazon.com will turn up hundreds of titles, including at least a dozen or so about the Salem Witch Trials. What does the Salem Witch Trials have to do with Wicca? Nada,zilch, nix, nothing...except in the minds of Wiccans. Meanwhile, the Salem Witch Trials fuels the hate Wiccans have for Christians.

The Salem Witch Trials are used by Wiccans as an example of Christian hate for witches, and offered as proof that someday Christianity will start up a new round of persecution. The trials happened during the winter of 1691-92 A.D. The 9 girls involved in the accusations were Elizabeth Paris, Abigail Paris, Ann Putnam, Elizabeth Hubbard, Mary Warren, Mercy Lewis, Mary Wolcott, Elizabeth Booth and Susan Sheldon.

The now infamous incidents started when a small group of girls at the home of their friends, sisters Elizabeth and Abagail Paris became involved in occult activities of a slave named Tituba. Tituba told the girls stories of African black magic with descriptions of spells, and performed fortune telling for them. She did not initiate them into an ancient goddess or "horned god" worshiping religion. Read that statement again until you get it. The Salem Witch Trials of 1692 resulted in nearly 200 people imprisoned, but only 20 were executed and a further 8 died in prison. No one was burned at the stake in Salem, the condemned were in fact, hanged, and one person was crushed to death. That one person who was crushed to death with stones, placed a curse on the Sheriff of Salem with his dying breath (hardly the act of a Christian, but rather the act of a sorcerer). Curiously, from that time forward, every Sheriff in Salem has died of a heart attack while in office. This and some other evidence shows that there was indeed some occult activity going on in Salem, but not to the extent of the number of people accused. It is unfortunate that anyone was put to death over Witchcraft, just as it is unfortunate Christians were thrown to lions for not believing Nero was a god, or making offerings to Pagan idol statues that also weren’t gods.

In Science magazine on April 2, 1976, scientist Linda Caporael put forth a explanation as to why the people of Salem acted the way they did. According to Caporael rye was a staple in New England at the time of the trials, and it may have been the rye bread consumed by the villagers played a part in the trials. Caporael felt that the girl's affliction could have been caused by "Convulsive Ergotism" a disorder resulting from the ingestion of contaminated rye grain. The weather conditions were ripe for the fungus that causes this disorder at the time of the trials, according to Caporael, and there is evidence from the writings of the time that suggest this was the case. The disorder, which mainly affects young females, has symptoms exactly like those suffered by the young girls. The symptoms include "hallucinations, violent fits, choking, pinching, itching, a crawling sensation in the skin and muscular contractions." Ergotism can also cause delusions and psychotic behavior, which sounds like what the older members of the community experienced. In a nearby village, a dog was even accused of witchcraft. When the dog failed to confess, it too was hanged! This hardly sounds like the action of rational people, it sounds more like the acts of people suffering from psychotic behavior, which would certainly fit with the ergotism explanation. So in other words, it was bad grain, not "persecution of a surviving Stone Age Pagan religion", that lead to the Salem Witch Trials.

Around 200 hundred people were arrested in all, but were later released. A year later the girls who accused so many publicly asked to be forgiven by the community, not even understanding themselves what had happened, or why they did it. There was also no mention from surviving records of mold on the wheat in 1693,which might also explain why the people of Salem Village regained their senses.

If the people of Salem Mass were under the influence of psychotropic molds, then they were hardly in their right minds. If they weren't in their right minds, they can't be held responsible for what they did. Is there really a good reason to hate them for what happened while they were not in their right minds? Is there a point in hating Christians alive today for something that happened over 300 years ago? Is there a point in Wiccans in hating Christians for the Salem Witch trials at all, since none of the people executed were even Wiccans anyway? Does anybody know where I left my car keys? Just thought I'd throw that last one in. I can never find my car keys! The idea of Wiccans trying to adopt these poor folks as fellow travelers is silly. They might as well get mad about Stalin's killing of Khulaks during his reign of terror. They have no more a connection to them as they do the "Witches" of Salem.

What do the Salem Witch trials have to with the religion invented in 1950 known as Wicca? Nothing. But a search of books on Wicca on Amazon.com will turn up at least half a dozen or so.

TOTAL NUMBER OF WICCANS KILLED BY CHRISTIANS TO DATE:
ZERO!




Ergot Poisoning - The Real Cause of the Salem Witch Hysteria
[From PBS "Secrets of the Dead II" — Witches Curse]
Case 1: Interview
Linnda Caporael may have solved one of the biggest mysteries of early American history — the cause of the Salem Witch Trials — but she stumbled onto the case quite by accident. "I actually started this project as a senior in college," recalls Caporael, now a behavioral scientist and full professor at Photo of Linnda Caporael Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York. "I had one of those standard senior problems where you are going for graduation check-out and find you are missing a critical course. Mine was a history course. I enrolled in one, and had to immediately write a paper, which I decided to do on Anne Putnam because I'd seen Arthur Miller's play THE CRUCIBLE. My goal was to demonstrate that women could be as wicked as men. As I began researching, I remember having one of those kind of 'ah-hah!' experiences, where I was reading a book in which the author said he was at a loss to explain the hallucinations of all these people in Salem. It was that word 'hallucinations' that made everything click. Years and years ago, when I was a little kid, I had read about the French case of ergot poisoning, and I made the connection between the two."
"The curious thing is that I went back recently to take a look at that reference and the author doesn't use the word hallucination at all. I must have hallucinated the word as much as anything else! Now I'm not too sure what the click actually was, but something said to me 'maybe it could be ergot poisoning.'"
Her detective work, first published 25 years ago, brought Caporael instant fame, worldwide recognition — even a front-page story in the NEW YORK TIMES. That's quite a heavy load for a student. "When it first came out it was quite sensational," Caporael recalls. "I sort of thought that was my 15 minutes of fame and went on to do my more usual work." But the allure of the trials and Caporael's intriguing explanation — that the "bewitched" accusers of Salem had in fact suffered hallucinations, convulsions, bizarre skin sensations and other unusual symptoms because they'd been poisoned by a crop of fungus-infested rye — is still fascinating 25 years later.
Caporael sees the allure. "It has all the elements of a good mystery story. I'd never worked on a project that was as well defined — we were talking about one event at one particular point in time," she says. "Plus, it was a lot of fun to do!"
Although she has long since moved on to other work, Caporael keeps her nose in the ergotism case file, following research that suggests the role of ergot in other historical events. She doesn't buy into all of them. "Some of these ideas are skating on thin ice," she says, such as the theory that ergot poisoning may have influenced the outcome of the French Revolution. "I do think there is a lot of work that can be done on the historical incidence of ergot, but not all of these cases will end up being ergot poisoning. Many of them could be attributed to the same kind of mass hysteria hypothesis that described Salem at one time."
Ergot poisoning can't even explain all of the events at Salem, Caporael concedes. Some of the behaviors exhibited by the witch accusers probably were the result of mass hysteria — or outright fakery. "At the end of June and the beginning of July, 1692, I think there was more imagination than ergot. But by that point in time three people had already been hung, and the trials had taken a path that people felt they had to stay on," Caporael says. "One of the clearest examples is the young accuser who, in the late summer, said 'wait a minute, I don't think that there are witches after all.' At that point, the other girls began accusing HER of being a witch, and she immediately seemed to understand what was going on and began being a vociferous accuser again."
And yet Caporael believes that the role of ergotism in history might still be under-appreciated. "I just got a fascinating email from a scholar in England who noticed that the fits of Caliban — the character in Shakespeare's THE TEMPEST — matched the description of those of people with ergot poisoning. She wondered would this kind of poisoning been possible in the 16th century when Shakespeare was writing. And the answer, of course, is yes. There were claims of outbreaks in both the U.K. and Europe then," says Caporael. "I think it's a fascinating idea that this would have been picked up in literature. In fact, it should have been if there was some kind of consistent physiological response."
Case 1: Background
The trouble in Salem began during the cold dark Massachusetts winter, January, 1692. Eight young girls began to take ill, beginning with 9-year-old Elizabeth Parris, the daughter of Reverend Samuel Parris, as well as his niece, 11-year-old Abigail Williams. But theirs was a strange sickness: the girls suffered from delirium, violent convulsions, incomprehensible speech, trance-like states, and odd skin sensations. The worried villagers searched desperately for an explanation. Their conclusion: the girls were under a spell, bewitched — and, worse yet, by members of their own pious community.
And then the finger pointing began. The first to be accused were Tituba, Parris's Caribbean-born slave, along with Sarah Good and Sarah Osburn, two elderly women considered of ill repute. All three were arrested on February 29. Ultimately, more than 150 "witches" were taken into custody; by late September 1692, 20 men and women had been put to death, and five more accused had died in jail. None of the executed confessed to witchcraft. Such a confession would have surely spared their lives, but, they believed, condemned their souls.
On October 29, by order of Massachusetts Governor Sir William Phips, the Salem witch trials officially ended. When the dust cleared, the townsfolk and the accusers were at a loss to explain their own actions. In the centuries since, scholars and historians have struggled as well to explain the madness that overtook Salem. Was it sexual repression, dietary deficiency, mass hysteria? Or, could a simple fungus have been to blame?
Case 1: Clues and Evidence
When Linnda Caporael began nosing into the Salem witch trials as a college student in the early 1970s, she had no idea that a common grain fungus might be responsible for the terrible events of 1692. But then the pieces began to fall into place. Caporael, now a behavioral psychologist at New York's Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, soon noticed a link between the strange symptoms reported by Salem's accusers, chiefly eight young women, and the hallucinogenic effects of drugs like LSD. LSD is a derivative of ergot, a fungus that affects rye grain. Ergotism — ergot poisoning — had indeed been implicated in other outbreaks of bizarre behavior, such as the one that afflicted the small French town of Pont-Saint-Esprit in 1951.
Photo of professor discussing ergot. But could ergot actually have been the culprit? Did it have the means and the opportunity to wreak havoc in Salem? Caporael's sleuthing, with the help of science, provided the answers.
Ergot is caused by the fungus Claviceps purpurea, which affects rye, wheat and other cereal grasses. When first infected, the flowering head of a grain will spew out sweet, yellow-colored mucus, called "honey dew," which contains fungal spores that can spread the disease. Eventually, the fungus invades the developing kernels of grain, taking them over with a network of filaments that turn the grains into purplish-black sclerotia. Sclerotia can be mistaken for large, discolored grains of rye. Within them are potent chemicals, ergot alkaloids, including lysergic acid (from which LSD is made) and ergotamine (now used to treat migraine headaches). The alkaloids affect the central nervous system and cause the contraction of smooth muscle — the muscles that make up the walls of veins and arteries, as well as the internal organs.
Toxicologists now know that eating ergot-contaminated food can lead to a convulsive disorder characterized by violent muscle spasms, vomiting, delusions, hallucinations, crawling sensations on the skin, and a host of other symptoms — all of which, Linnda Caporael noted, are present in the records of the Salem witchcraft trials. Ergot thrives in warm, damp, rainy springs and summers. When Caporael examined the diaries of Salem residents, she found that those exact conditions had been present in 1691. Nearly all of the accusers lived in the western section of Salem village, a region of swampy meadows that would have been prime breeding ground for the fungus. At that time, rye was the staple grain of Salem. The rye crop consumed in the winter of 1691-1692 — when the first usual symptoms began to be reported — could easily have been contaminated by large quantities of ergot. The summer of 1692, however, was dry, which could explain the abrupt end of the 'bewitchments.' These and other clues built up into a circumstantial case against ergot that Caporael found impossible to ignore.

PSYCHIC SCAMS

One of the biggest and most lucrative scams nowadays are “Gypsy Scams” “Psychic Scams” or “Fortuneteller Scams” It’s easy to make it appear a person has psychic powers. HERE IS ONE EXAMPLE. CLICK HERE!

THE TELEPHONE PSYCHIC FRIEND SCAM

“Hey mon, call me for ya free readin’!” Your free reading won’t be free, nor will it be a reading. Well, unless you call reading a script that gets read to every single person a "reading". Click here to read the scripted shctick Psychics of Lady Cleo’s Psychic network used.

THE COLD READING

This is the most widely used trick used by Psychics. Here’s how it works.

[From "Encyclopedia of Claims, Frauds, and Hoaxes of the Occult and Supernatural"]

COLD READING Among practitioners of the occult arts, there is a technique known as “cold reading.” When the performer is faced with an audience that is entirely strange to him, he uses this tried-and-true method of guessing names, relationships, events, and situations that might relate to audience members. The technique is differentiated from “hot reading,” which is used when the reader has obtained specific, hard information about a sitter and merely has to reveal it in a convincing manner. U.K. author/historian Ian Wilson looked into the methods of one Doris Stokes, a prominent U.K. clairaudient, and discovered that the people for whom she had produced “evidential” messages were people who had contacted her in advance of the show, had given her information, and had then been invited to attend her meeting. The information she'd received from them was then given back to them and embellished upon. Mrs. Stokes's work serves well as an excellent example of hot reading.

Performing cold reading by throwing out common names and hoping that someone will “link” with one of them, following up by guessing or simply asking the relationship of a name that has been selected out and “accepted” by a sitter, the medium is well on the way to convincing an unwary listener that he or she has contacted the dead.


Here's the way it's done. Suppose that a sitter has accepted the name “Mary.” The medium can now say, “I want to put Mary close to you.” What does this really mean? It's really a question as to whether or not Mary is “close to” the sitter. In the worst-case scenario, where Mary is dead, is buried in another country, was never very fond of the sitter, and was not related to him, we might uncharitably fail to recognize how close that guess was. However, a clever medium can easily rescue this seemingly bad guess by saying, “Ah, but though Mary failed to tell you of her great affection for you while she was here, she has come through tonight to remedy all that.” Though it sounds hard to believe, sitters actually accept such excuses. They are more than willing to accept. And note that the reader did not say that Mary was close to the sitter; what he said was only a comment, though certainly one that begged a response.

The cold reading routine includes a number of excellent methods for extracting information from the sitter without it appearing as if the medium has actually asked for it. Comments like “Why is this person laughing?” or “She's shaking her head as if to say no” will often elicit a response. As with the “Mary” comment earlier, some questions don't appear to be questions at all: “I get this person in spirit” or “Somehow, I feel Jim was related to you or lived near you” are examples. Even more useful are those modifiers that generalize or fuzz up the statement so that it has a greater chance of being successful or of evoking an answer. Phrases like “I think that . . .” or “I feel as if . . .” or “I want to say . . .” and many other try-ons are used for this purpose. Other useful techniques: The reader can say “Yes, of course,” and then repeat to the sitter a fact that has just been given him, as if he knew it all along. Or he can say “Of course! I got that very strongly!” when he is given a fact that he didn't get at all. When he hears something from the sitter that appears to “link” up, he might declare “Now we're putting it all together,” even though the sitter is the one who is making it work.
The main facets of the system are:

1. Readers use such phrases as “I think . . .” (or “I don't think . . .”). This is a way of “trying on” a guess for acceptance.

2. Readers simply ask for direct, factual information from the sitter which they say is a way to “help along” the process. The sitter is usually very willing to help.

3. Readers often say that they cannot differentiate between past, present, and future events and relationships, so that there are many more possibilities for “hits.”

4. Wide ranging of the sitter's imagination is not only expected by the mediums, but is encouraged. Sitters are told to be creative and try to make the reading fit.

5. There is a willing, and eager collusion between the medium and the sitter, even if largely unconscious on the part of the sitter.

Cold reading isn't necessarily learned in a series of lessons. Though classes in “spiritual development” are sometimes offered by mediums and are understood, both by teacher and students, to have been designed to enhance their awareness of the survival-after-death philosophy, the lessons seem also to instruct the learners in how to extract certainties out of ambiguity. For example, trying to guess a word sealed in an envelope, students are encouraged to discover relationships between obscure ramblings and the word itself. A notion about walking down a road, for example, might be said to correctly relate to the concealed word “success” because “everyone seeks a path to success, and a path is a sort of road.” The words used are always general in nature (success, peace, happiness, sadness, longing, searching) rather than more definitive words like cat, hammer, Germany, or coffee.
Most proficiency at cold reading is obtained by observing old masters of the trade and by trial and error...

The methods of probing and backing up, laughing away failures and turning them into forgivable boo-boos, getting around long pauses in which the sitter fails to volunteer needed information, and blaming errors on the “poor spiritual wavelengths” all become clear with a little study. By means of cold reading, a proficient operator can readily convince a sitter that contact with a departed person has been firmly established. That's what it's really all about. The victims of the process are constantly encouraged to think of something that can “link” the very trite but tried-and-true phrases to any deceased (or living) person or past (or present) situation they can come up with or imagine. The vague language and the inevitable modifiers (possibly, maybe, perhaps) often offer many easy connections that can be arrived at.

PSYCHIC SURGERY


Psychic Surgery Every week, increasing numbers of people from all over the world arrive in Manila, capital of the Republic of the Philippines, seeking magical aid from the curanderos, who claim they can heal every sort of malady. Apparently by means of psychic——or divine——powers, these native healers can reach their hands into the bodies of clients, extracting deadly tumors and other substances, along with quantities of blood. In most cases, there is no trace of an incision on the body of the patient.
To any experienced conjuror, the methods by which these seeming miracles are produced are very obvious. But inexperienced observers quite naturally do not see the trickery, and if they are predisposed to believe in magic, they are prepared to accept that something supernatural has taken place.


There are two distinct classes of this performance, which is now known as “psychic surgery.” The most common form is relatively free of direct and immediate physical damage and risk to the person treated. It consists of cheating, secretly introducing the blood and other materials onto the surface of the body by means of sleight of hand. No incision takes place, and any infection which occurs does so through minor abrasions or scratches. The second form of “psychic surgery” is simply a direct invasion of the body by means of small, shallow incisions, often made unobserved, under cover of distraction——in exactly the way that a conjuror would perform.


This Filipino practice has spread worldwide now, and in the states of California and Florida, psychic surgeons regularly visit on tour, untroubled by law enforcement agencies under the protection of the principle of Freedom of Religion. Since actual incisions are seldom made, the risk of infection is small. These practitioners, often assuming the titles “Reverend,” “Brother,” or “Doctor,” typically charge $100 per minute for their services. In other cases, they make no formal charge, but accept sizable “donations” that are carefully suggested by them, in writing, to their victims.


One variety of “operation” performed by these people is actually a medieval procedure that involves actual invasion of the body. Known as “cupping,” it consists of first making a tiny incision with a knife, usually without any sterilization, anesthetic, or antiseptic. Then a bit of cotton wool soaked in alcohol is placed upon a coin near or upon the cut, and the cotton is ignited. A small glass is then quickly inverted over the site. At this point the area is often covered with a cloth, as if performing a conjuring trick and thus concealing from sight the process that now takes place inside the inverted glass.


As the oxygen is consumed by the flame, a partial vacuum is created, drawing the flesh up into the glass. This causes the wound to bleed, and when the partial vacuum is thus equalized, the cloth is removed so that one can see that about one-fifth of the volume of the glass is now filled with blood. This process will, to an uninformed person, appear as if some magical force had brought the blood from the wound.

WHO ARE THE GYPSIES?

When the nomadic Gypsies arrived in Europe in the Middle Ages, Euopreans thought they came from Egypt. Gypsy is short for Egyptian. Many of them settled for a time in Romania, which is why Gyspies are called Romany. I WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR THAT NOT ALL GYPSIES ARE FORTUNE-TELLERS AND CON ARTISTS. In fact, many fortunetellers and occultists claimig to be Gypsies are not. There are 5 Gyspie clans in America; the Addams, the Bimbos, The Stephens, The Smiths, and The Merrinos (Gypsy immigrants adopted Anglicanized names). The Gypsies actually are descendeants from a tribe of Warriors in Northern India. Why exactly they left India and traveled over Europe is a mystery. It may be the tribe became demoted to untouchables. Remnants of that same tribe who stayed behind in India are part of the untouchable caste.

The reputation of Gypsies mythical occult powers goes back centuries. Wiccan Raymond Buckland claims he is of Gypsie ancestry, although this is doubtful. Anton LaVey claimed to have a Gypsy grandmother, proven bogus by his own family. Sybil Leek claimed to have tramped around with the Gypsies, although she isn’t known for her truth telling ability, and Gypsies are seldom known to befriend outsiders.

Another reputation of the Gypsie is that of being a con artist. Unfortunately, there is a basis for fact for this. Peter Mass interviews a Gypsy leader named in his facinating and insightful book King of The Gypsies, which was later made into a movie. The book revealed many of the con games Gypsies use, including occult cons. Since this information comes from a Gypsy, it can hardly be dismissed as “Christian propaganda.”.

AND LEARN HOW SHE WAS "DEAD WRONG"!


This is how psychics take advantage of people and prey on their misery.

So-called "Real Psychics" bust "fake psychics" and tell you they're the real deal. Don't fall for this...those guys are fakes too. It's no different than when a drug dealer reports another drug dealer to the police just to get rid of the competition!




Fortune Tellers

I See Bad Things Happening

A fortune teller in New York utilized a common industry scheme to defraud her "client" out of $200,000 in inheritance money by claiming that the money, given to the victim from a relative, was evil and had to be cleansed. She conned the victim into believing that the source of her personal and professional unhappiness was the "evil" in the inheritance money.

She convinced her client that she could cleanse the money of evil spirits at a cemetery and, thereafter, would return the money so the victim's life would get back on the right path. This late night ritual usually involves a man's white handkerchief and an egg which absorbs the evil spirits.

The victim first met the con outside a restaurant where she was sitting at a table offering tarot card readings for $15. The victim believed the initial reading to be accurate with regard to her life, her children, her husband and her father, and thereafter agreed to regular meetings.

During the meetings, she was befriended and revealed more about her life, including that she had received a substantial inheritance. She was told she needed to "purify" herself so that she could resolve issues concerning her work, love life, and her children. Often this takes the ritualistic form of burning "special" candles which supposedly cost around $100 each.

Over about eight weeks she was directed to make cash withdrawals to purchase items, such as gift certificates and jewelry, that the con would use for all sorts of "ceremonies." Later, she directed the victim to provide monies to her in the form of cash so that she could "clean" the money and "rid it of evil."

After receiving over $160,000 in cash and other personal property and items valued at over $40,000, the fortune teller fell victim to the money's evil and vanished.

Overcome By All The Evil Received

Another woman, who said she gave Evans $76,000 when she was going through a deep emotional crisis stated. "She took advantage of me when I was really having problems and feeling suicidal."

That Love Bug is Possessed

2002 Manahttan, NY Two self-described psychics, Sonia Merino, 50 and her daughter-in-law, Nasta Merino, 23 were arrested and charged with five counts each of mail fraud for allegedly conning clients into paying thousands of dollars in fees to "free them from bad karma". The pair offered psychic readings for as little as $10 but would then tell clients that additional sessions, ranging up to $20,000, were needed to drive away a curse or some negative spiritual force. One client told investigators that he gave Sonia Merino more than $518,000 in checks, a 1999 Volkswagen Beetle, a CD player and a personal computer over a three-year period after first going to her for a tarot card reading in 1996 after a failed romance. He says Sonia told him he needed a series of costlier sessions including a request for $750,000 to pay a group of psychics to conduct all-night meditations on his behalf. One victim was quoted in the affidavit as saying that Sonia Merino threatened to put a curse on her when she refused to pay several thousand dollars for a series of sessions. Another told of being badgered with phone calls every few hours throughout the night. In addition to mail fraud, Sonia and her husband Steve, 44, were charged with tax fraud for allegedly underreporting $750,000 in income from 1995 through 1999. Sonia Merino also sold clients what she described as "holy water" from the Vatican but analysis showed it was Manhattan Beach tap water, authorities said. Nasta Merino was accused of selling at least one person "holy water" from Ste.-Anne-de-Beaupre, a Catholic shrine near Quebec City, Canada, which is frequented by invalids seeking miracle cures. It, too, came from a local tap.



Emily 09/22/02 Ham and Eggs

It was late winter of last year when she approached me. I was walking down the street and saw her from a distance handing out flyers. As I was walking down towards her, I noticed she was looking down on the street not looking at anyone. As I was walking towards her direction she handed me a flyer.

The instant I took it she looked straight at my face and said something, and though I can't remember her exact words, it was something along the lines of "my soul mate is out there but I know him and currently quarreling with him and he doesn't know that I am his soul mate yet; that there this darkest surrounding me and standing in the way of my happiness; that I’m in trouble; need to be read and that she would read me for free."

I was so enthralled by what she had said I went with her to her home right up the block and there she read my palm. She said that someone years before had apparently placed a darkness upon me (yes, a supposed “curse” but in her own elaborate wording).

I was astonished to hear of the tough times she knew I had been going through (psychic scammers use questioning methods in order to draw out information out of a person, so they can appear as though they are psychic), that the cause of this was this curse placed upon me, how it affected my past, present and how it will affect my future even worse.

That if I wanted to be happy she had the gift and power to remove this curse placed on me and be able to do that for a “one time fee” of only $300. So I came back with the money and she told me that she would do some meditation that night at her (supposed) church on focusing on how to help me.

She told me to come back the following day and to bring back a red rose and an envelope. So I came in the following day and she told me from her meditation last night, she saw the soul of a person who placed this darkness upon me.

That this person went to someone to have this done and they used things that were not natural or holy to commit this act. She told me make three wishes and pull the petals from the rose, drop them in the envelope and write my name and birth date on it.She said she would keep the rose and meditate on it that evening and find what she could find out and let me know the following day.

The following day, she said that based upon her mediation she found out that this person hadn’t done this to me once but nine times and that she needed to do further mediation that weekend to find out what needed to be done.

She said that I needed to bring the following week nine bills of $100, an uncooked egg, white cotton underwear, nine leaves (yes, - “the egg trick”) and the envelope. She gave me incense and told me to light and place all those items under my bed that weekend.

I said I would be able to gather the items except that the money would be a problem since I didn’t have that kind of money on me. She said to get whatever largest quantity I could find, so I managed to get $50 bills. I placed all the items under my bed and lit the incense that weekend and contacted her right after as she instructed me to.

The following Monday I came in, and though I can’t remember all the step by step details of what she did, I do recall she blessed me with some holy water (probably tap water), took the money and folded it into a shape like a star, had me recite some gibberish prayer that she was recanting, put the money on my forehead and chest and then put the money in the envelope for me to keep.

Then she did the “egg trick” having my eyes closed and having me reciting again another gibberish prayer (a way to keep you distracted so they can slip whatever disgusting gross thing onto the egg they just crack). When I opened my eyes I found a “tiny wormy snake in the egg” cracked and placed on top of the underwear I was told to bring. Afterwards, she told me based upon her meditation that weekend and only one snake being found in the egg there was still more evil that had not been removed (“that only one evil was removed but there was 2 more evils that had not been removed”)- hence there was more work needed to be done.

At home, she told me to light a white candle halfway with my initials engraved, leave a half filled water jar under my bed and breathe into it 9 times a day, tie nine red ribbons around my fingers and toes and to bring $2,700 the next day (her explanation: $300 - three representing the trinity of the largest denomination X 9 – the many times the curse had been placed upon me) for her to remove the evil from me and transfer it to this money.

She said that afterwards I had the choice to have it destroyed before my eyes and buried in the ground where no human being would walk, or lock it in a specially ordered box for several months to be placed on an alter of her church to be cleansed and be given back to me several months later.

I told her it was going to be difficult since I didn’t have that kind of money on me.

She yelled at me saying if I really wanted to be happy I needed to rid myself of this, that I should try to get as much as I could, and to contact her through the week on the progress of the money. So I contacted her mid-week saying I could only get $900. She told me to light the rest of the candle and contact her on Sunday to set up a day. I contacted her on Sunday and then throughout the week until she said she was available to do it the following week.

So I came to her home the following week and had her destroy the all money including the money in the white envelope by having her rip the money before my eyes, or at least under my throat, while she had me recite another prayer (another method they use - she had ripped some but not all of the bills as she crumpled them and left them to fall to the ground, the impression and sound that they were all being ripped when in fact they weren’t). Then she had me write up and sign a contract stating that I was loaning her the money.

She then told me to come back the following day with the leftover candle wax so she could mediate with it and to pick up a package of crystals, incense and holy water that she had ordered for me to use that weekend. When I came in the next day, she did some sort of ritual cleansing on me and the only thing she gave me consisted of incense and some water mixed with incense to bath in (which I never used and threw away) and that the crystal she specially ordered would arrive in a few weeks and to contact her again that weekend.

But then that weekend, realizing what I had done, I came to my senses and called her requesting she give my money back and she said she would. Later that weekend she called me saying she had only half of the money and to pick it up on Monday and that she would give me the rest later on.

That Monday, I went to her home and picked up the money. She said to check later on this week or next to see if “the church” could give her the rest of the money. So for three weeks, I called and called. Mostly phone tagging her, with her each time giving me excuses that the church wasn’t able to give her any money and she very busy and to call again later, in the hope that I would eventually give up in the end. Realizing I wouldn’t give up, she finally relented saying she had the money for me to pick up. I did so and never spoke to her since.

As you read this you might have thought that common or instinctive sense would have told me to stop my involvement when things started to get shady. Believe me, I contested and was suspicious every time money was asked. But like most people who tell of their account of being a victim of a psychic scam these psychic scammers are very skilled in convincing you that they have the gift and power to help you, and the ability to extract information from you.

Their overall objective is to emotionally control and psychologically take advantage of you by tapping into your vulnerability and fears – which is frightening!!

They try to win your trust and loyalty to get you to confide in them, so they can use that information (whether emotional or financial) against you. They profess to know the cause of your problems and that they have the power to help you, and will do whatever needs to be done (in most cases asking for money) to benefit you in the end. They make sure that they put their hooks into you to convince you to still want to be involved in their scheme by enticing you to come back for more.

In my case, this fraudster had me call her constantly and every weekend to let her know how I was doing. She would occasionally provide me with bits of information regarding the person who “supposedly” cursed me and promised to later find out exactly who it was (which she never did!!). She was very convincing, wanting me to believe, and have faith in what she was saying and the power of what she could do. She seemed empathetic in listening to my concerns and problems. Stating that there was no pressure to this if I didn’t want to do it, allowing me to think it over and that even if afterwards, if I had doubts about it, she would give me the money right back. From the basis of that I assumed she was the genuine thing.

Her name is supposedly "Laura or Arroyo" and she resides at her place of business on West 24th Street in NYC.

She is in her 30’s and says she is of Greek descent with Mediterranean or Hispanic features, but she capable of changing her appearance. Her blond hair apparently seems to have been bleached at the time that I had been approached by her. I later found out she occasionally displays a fold- out advertisement sign of her supposed services or hands out flyers at the end of the corner walk where she resides.Except for the $300 fee she charged and refused to give back, I was able to get all of my $1,600 back. An ordeal, beginning to end, of about a month.

Flat Iron District Victim 03/29/03


Woman jailed in scam as psychic - VICTIM, 19, WAS PRESSED TO PAY TOTAL OF $15,000

A self-proclaimed psychic based in Half Moon Bay was sentenced to two years in state prison Friday for demanding that a 19-year-old woman pay her $15,000 to ward off predictions that the woman's family members would die. Janet Adams, 41, operated as a palm reader and psychic at a booth at the annual Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival and got to know the victim through a friend, said San Mateo County Deputy District Attorney Kathryn Alberti.``This 19-year-old was very innocent, very vulnerable,'' Alberti said.

Over several months, Adams would make predictions that the woman's family members were about to die, and would tell her that she needed to pay or the predictions would come true, Alberti said. The victim had access to a parent's bank account, and also charged payments on her credit cards, Alberti said. The requests for money came almost weekly until the woman became suspicious and reported Adams to police last fall, when she was arrested in San Mateo.

Adams was convicted last year of running the same scam on a San Mateo piano store owner. In that case, she operated under the name Kimberly Johnson, and managed to convince the owner to give her a total of $100,000, Alberti said.

HOW NOT TO BE A VICTIM OF FORTUNETELLER FRAUD

1. Rememeber, all Tarot readers, palm readers, astrologers, psychics, aura readers, fortunetellers, mediums, channelers, etc., are fakes. They don’t have psychic powers. Don’t go them in the first place. Some people have tried seemingly innocent $15 Tarot reading at a booth at a fall festival or county fair and wound up thousands of dollars in debt later.

2. If you’ve been swindled, don’t be afraid to come forward. Often times psychic con artists go scott ftee because the victims are too embarrassed or to scared to admit they were scammed. This is escpecially true of more of educated types who feel they should have been smarter than to fall for a trick. Psychic cons are good at what they do. They know how to manipulate people and often pray on people when they’re at very low points emotionally in their lives, ad thus very vulnerable. Even people with PhD’s have been fooled by Psychic cons. Don’t feel ashamed or angry at yourself, go to the authorities and report it so it doesn’t happen to someone else.

3. If you were a victim and a substantial amount of money was conned from you, report it to the IRS, since Psychics never report this kind of income.

4. Don’t be afraid of being hexed or cursed by the Psychic. Just remember, they are lying to you. Lies are the occultists greatest tool. Read about hexes and curses HERE. If they threaten you with physical violence, call the police.

Default Bible taken literally by Occultists

Most of what is touted as "Bible Contradictions" are really misunderstandings.

YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE BOOK "136 BIBLE CONTRADICITIONS...EXPLAINED" AS A ZIPPED .pdf FILE RIGHT NOW BY CLICKING HERE!





There was a time when I was young I lost my faith in the Bible due to these so-called "errors". eventually, when I returned to christianity and actually took some seminary courses, I was amazed at how much of the Bible I only thought I knew all those years as an occultist.

Many Bible errors can be figured out right off the bat if you remember a few simple rules.



1. Some things in the Bible are not meant to be taken literal.

The Bible is filled from cover to cover with allegories, poetry, symbolism, and figuritive language! A favorite verse of Bible critics is:

2Ki 18:27 And the chief of the cupbearers said to them, Has my master sent me to your master and to you, to speak these words, and not to the men who sit on the wall, to eat their own dung and drink their own urine with you? (MKJV)

One Neopagan recently emailed me with his toung jammed firmly in his cheek as he wrote " Is this some kind of religous ritual?"

You have to realize the Bible is written with poetry and prose, figuritive language and allegory. Sometimes it even uses earthy language to get the point across. In this instance, what God is saying to these people is what extremities and miseries will come upon them if they don’t straighten up. It doesn’t have to neccesarilly mean they will literally eat their own waste (consequently, there's no mention they did). It's like telling someone they're up a certain well known creek without a paddle. No one believes they will literally be in a real river of feces!

Niether was Jesus being literal when he said things like it was better to pluck out one's own eye than view something it shouldn't. Nor did he mean people should literally cut there hands off because of sin. No one in Christs time thought he was being literal, and certainly no Christian today believes it in a literal sense. And yet, I read arguments like this on the webpages of Bible skeptics who somehow don't get it.

2.We don't speak the same kind of English as they did in the King James Bible.

Sometimes a verse can seem to say one thing, but really meant something different when it was written. Words like "prevent" "lead" and "perfect" can have different meannings than what they do now. The Lord's Prayer says "Lead Us Not Into Temptaion..." to which Bible critics will ask why God would ever lead people into temptation? The word "Lead" would better rendered as "steer" in our language. In other words, Jesus was saying "Don't allow us to wander into temptation steer us the right way instead..." There are many, many different Bible versions with updated English. The Third Melinium Bible and the Modern King James Bible are both good. Sometimes simply reading the Bible in more modern English will clear up any misgivings.

3. The New Covenant Fulfiled the Old Covenant

This is why Christians no longer follow the dietary laws of the Old Testament or keep Saturday as the Sabbath. When Jesus came to Earth, the Mosaic Law was fulfilled.

4. There are many Hebrew and Middle Eastern customs and idioms which are not understood by Gentiles/Westerners.

Here's a prime example: Matthew 12:40, about Jesus being in the grave 3 days and 3 nights, although he was only in the grave at best 3 days and 2 nights. I am familiar with the Wednesday/Saturday theory, but I feel Ralph Woodrow has thoroughly debunked it in his book which I highly recommend, Three Days and Three Nights Reconsidered In The Light Of Scriptures.

This is from tektonics.org

<snip>

This is actually an instance in which we need to understand Jewish idiom, which understood "a day and a night" to include even the smallest part of a day and night. A Jewish source from after the time of the New Testament puts it this way: "A day and a night are an Onah ['a portion of time'] and the portion of an Onah is as the whole of it" [J.Talmud, Shabbath 9.3 and b.Talmud, Pesahim 4a] Other examples of this kind of usage can be found throughout the Bible (Gen. 42:16, 1Kings 20:29, Esth. 4:16, Matt. 27:63). Jesus was in the tomb for only a small part of Friday and Sunday, but that counts according to Jewish idiom for the entire "day and night" for each of those days.

The fuller cite from the Talmud reads:

Weigh well that which is disputed in the tract Schabbath, concerning the uncleanness of a woman for three days; where many things are discussed by the Gemarists concerning the computation of this space of three days. Among other things, these words occur; "R. Ismael saith, Sometimes it contains four Onoth, sometimes five, sometimes six. But how much is the space of an Onah? R. Jochanon saith either a day or a night." And so also the Jerusalem Talmud; "R. Akiba fixed a day for an Onah, and a night for an Onah: but the tradition is, that R. Eliezar Ben Azariah said, A day and a night make an Onah, and a part of an Onah is as a whole." And a little after, R. Ismael computeth a part of the Onah for the whole. (p. 210, vol. 2, Commentary on the New Testament from the Talmud and Hebraica)
As an aside, a strawman set up against this argues that because the reason for the discussion is a menstrual cycle, then this designation applies only for menstrual cycles. That is not the case. While the menstrual cycle was the "problem" causing the discussion, the resolution is completely independent of the problem and is not uniquely associated with it.

In addition, the online Jewish Encyclopedia says this about
day": In the Bible, the season of light (Gen. i. 5), lasting "from dawn [lit. "the rising of the morning"] to the coming forth of the stars" (Neh. iv. 15, 17). The term "day" is used also to denote a period of twenty-four hours (Ex. xxi. 21). In Jewish communal life part of a day is at times reckoned as one day; e.g., the day of the funeral, even when the latter takes place late in the afternoon, is counted as the first of the seven days of mourning; a short time in the morning of the seventh day is counted as the seventh day; circumcision takes place on the eighth day, even though of the first day only a few minutes remained after the birth of the child, these being counted as one day. Again, a man who hears of a vow made by his wife or his daughter, and desires to cancel the vow, must do so on the same day on which he hears of it, as otherwise the protest has no effect; even if the hearing takes place a little time before night, the annulment must be done within that little time. The day is reckoned from evening to evening-i.e., night and day-except in reference to sacrifices, where daytime and the night following constitute one day (Lev. vii. 15; see Calendar). "The day" denotes: (a) Day of the Lord; (b) the Day of Atonement; (c) the treatise of the Mishnah that contains the laws concerning the Day of Atonement (See Yoma and Sabbath).E. G. H.

I also found an answer I like just as much in Pinchas Lapide's The Resurrection of Jesus (91-2). He takes the reference to the "third day" as alluding to various passages in the OT where the after a "third day" something happens in the "history of salvation," (Gen. 22:4, 42:18; Ex. 19:16; Jonah 1:17; Esther 5:1; Hos. 6:2) and thus "has nothing to do with the date or counting of time but contains for ears which are educated biblically a clear reference to God's mercy and grace which is revealed after two days of afflication and death by way of redemption."

In other words, it is a literary device, and thus must be read as one.

</snip>

There are many, many other examples as well. So, before you go believeing every cockeyed claim made by some angry atheist with an angelfire page, just remember it's extremely unlikely they can read Greek and Hebrew, let alone have even made a cursory study of Middle Eastern cultures. It seems every Cliff Claven thinks they're smart enough to refute the Bible.



5.Some words may have gotten lost in the translation.

In Greek (the language the new testament was written in) there are 5 different words for our one word "love". Tenses, voices, pluperfect participles...oi vay! Sometimes the translators did there best when they translated things. Sometimes they came across words they didn't have a definition for. Here's an example:

Lev 11:6 And the hare, because he chews the cud but does not divide the hoof; he is unclean to you.

Bible critics have a little smirk on their face when they point this verse out, thinking they've won. Hares don't chew cud, they point out. True, but they also don't have hoofs of any kind either. Hmmmm.... Let's investigate further...

"Lev 11:6 - hare Hebrew, arnebeth, an unidentified animal, but certainly not a hare, possessing as it is said to, characteristics not possessed by the hare. The supposed error in the text is due entirely to the translators' assumption that the English hare and the ancient "arnebeth" were identical. " (Source: Scofield's Notes on the Bible)

So there you have it. It wasn't what we call a "hare", it was an arnebeth. Chances are it's an animal that is now extinct. This brings me to my next point:

6.Many of these so-called Bible verses have been explained and resolved again, and again and again ad nauseuam if you just bother to look it up!

Try reading books written by Bible scholars. Believe it or not, someone who has a PhD in Theology might actually know a little something about the Bible! I used to think I knew everything about the Bible too, when I was an occultist. Many years later I found out I didn't.

I just mentioned Schofield's Notes. A Schofleild Bible may answer many questions you may have. You may also want to try “136 Bible
Contradictions....Answered”, by Brad McCoy (available above as a download),
“Encyclopedia of Old Testament Difficulties” Zondervan
Press, and “Commentary on The Torah” by Richard
Friedman

Here are a few Bible "contradictions"...answered.

Jdg 1:19 And Jehovah was with Judah. And he took possession of the mountain. But he could not drive out those who lived in the valley, because they had chariots of iron.

This verse isn't always obvious to some people. The verse isn't saying God couldn't drive them out. It's saying JUDAH could not drive them out. The clue to this is the "he" is not capitalized in this verse, denoting God. It's obvious when read in the Latin Vulgate or the original Hebrew.

<snip>

Paul's attendants heard the miraculous voice, and stood speechless [Acts 9:7]

Paul's attendants heard not the voice and were prostrate [Acts 26:14]

Acts 26:14 And when they had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me...

Acts 9:7 The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone.

While we are at it, let's add the other account...

Acts 22:9 My companions saw the light, but they did not understand the voice of him who was speaking to me.

Obviously, according to the NIV translation, there is no contradiction, as you can hear a sound, but not the recognize it as the voice of one speaking. So is this translation justified? Sure. The original Greek makes a distinction between hearing a sound as a noise and hearing a voice as a thought-conveying message. Haley notes "The Greek "akouo", like our word "hear", has two distinct meanings, to perceive sound, and to understand". This distinction makes sense also in light of the context. Recall the differing levels of perception. While the men heard an unintelligible sound and saw a light, Paul heard the voice and saw the person speaking. In fact, this type of distinction occurs in another place:

"Then a voice came from heaven, "I have glorified it, and will glorify it again". The crowd that was there and heard it said it had thundered; others said an angel had spoken to him" [John 12:28-29]. Here is a clear-cut example where a voice speaks, but is heard by some as an unintelligible sound.

As for the stance of Paul's companions, Haley notes "the word rendered 'stood' also means to be fixed, to be rooted to the spot. Hense, the sense may be, not that they stood erect, but that they were rendered motionless, or fixed to the spot, by overpowering fear". It is also entirely plausible that when they first saw the great light, they "hit the dirt", then they could have got up off the ground and stood there motionless.

The problem with the skeptic's approach is that it assumes these accounts are exhaustive, step by step, accounts where each detail is conveyed. They are not. It's not as if the author of Acts is saying "this is how it happened" three separate times. The author does this once, and the other two times he relays Paul speaking about it in two different contexts. Now given that the author wasn't on the road to Damascus, and given that Paul was speaking from memory, and given that none of these are meant to be some exhaustive, detailed, point by point description, it is indeed wise to fit them all together. Furthermore, the account in Acts 26 relays a speech that Paul gave to King Agrippa which was only a synopsis. Acts 26 simply relays the manner in which Paul chose to convey his points.

Goliath was slain by Elhanan [2 Sam 21:19] note: was changed in translation to be correct -- original manuscript was incorrect.

The brother of Goliath was slain by Elhanan [1 Chron 20:5]

As conceded, the verse in 2 Sam was probably due to a copyist's mistake. This is an example of why skeptics and Bible critics love to use the King James Version

The father of Joseph, Mary's husband was Jacob [Matt 1:16] seems to contradict [Luke 3:23] that says the father of Mary's husband was Heli. But Luke's account traces Jesus' lineage through Mary, and not Joseph. To because of the chauvinism of the time, Luke inserted Joseph's name in the place of Mary's. The evidence that validates this is Luke's birth narrative is told through the eyes of Mary, while Matthew's is told through the eyes of Joseph. Luke probably received his material through Mary herself, if not someone close, thus it is quite possible that he received her genealogy.

Luke 3:23 reads, "Jesus...being supposedly the son of Joseph, the son of Heli, etc." Luke certainly draws attention to the fact that Jesus wasn't Joseph's earthly son, so why would he then go to all the trouble in listing Joseph's genealogy? (3) After considering the Greek of Luke 3:23, Robert Gromacki believes it should be translated as follows: "being the son (as was supposed of Joseph) of Heli, of Matthat, etc." Gromaki states: "Since women did not appear in direct genealogical listings, Joseph stood in Mary's place, but Luke was careful to note that there was no physical connection between Joseph and either Jesus or Heli."

In Luke's genealogy he lists Adam as being "the son of God." This would indicate that one would have no grounds for insisting that the term "son" meant only the direct, biological offspring. Thus, one could think of Jesus as the "son of Heli." (5) The writings of Ignatius of Antioch (ca. 100 AD) indicate that the early church thought that Mary was a Davidic descent. For example, he writes: "Under the Divine dispensation, Jesus Christ our God was conceived by Mary of the seed of David and of the spirit of God; He was born, and He submitted to baptism, so that by His Passion He might sanctify water." -- Ignatius to the Ephesians

"Christ was of David's line. He was the son of Mary; He was verily and indeed born.." -- Ignatius to the Trallians

Since Ignatius believed in the virgin birth, it clearly follows that he would believe that she was "of the seed of David." Other apocryphal gospels and Justin Martyr (ca. 150 AD) also believed Mary to have been a descendent of David.

Objections to these claims are basically of two types:

A. The Jews did not typically trace genealogies through women. This is true, but a virgin birth is not a typical birth. Thus standard practices would not be expected to hold.

B. There is no explicit mention that the genealogy is Mary's.

This is true again, but the reason for this is probably due to point A. The genealogy would lose all appeal if it was explicitly cited as Mary's. However, it does seem to be implied. Thus, one could discern this truth after they had converted and studied the text. This would account for the early church's belief about Mary's Davidic descent.

Whatever one makes of such reasoning, it is certainly possible that the above explanation might be true, thus a contradiction has not been proved.

<end snip>

Also, there have been women's genealogies from this era that have used the same tactic as tracing the line through the husband. This was obviously the case with Christ's geanealogy.

Christ First Sermon

Christ preached his first sermon on the mount [Matt 5:1,2]

or....

Christ preached his first sermon on the plain [Luke 6:17,20]

Neither account says anything about this being his "first sermon." As MaryAnna notes: Probably two different sermons with similar content. Matt. doesn't say the sermon on the mount was His first sermon. Matt. doesn't seem too concerned about the sequence of events. Matt. 4:23 seems to indicate that before this the Lord already had done a lot of speaking. The one in Luke 6:17 was to the crowds, whereas the one in Matt. 5 was addressed to the disciples privately.

Indeed. It is not at all uncommon for a preacher to preach similar sermons at different times and with different audiences, now is it?

WHICH HOUR???

Christ was crucified at the third hour [Mark 15:25]

Christ was not crucified until the sixth hour [John 19:14,15]

At what hour was Jesus crucified? Mark 15:25 says it was in the third hour, 9:00 a.m. John 19:14-15 says that in the sixth hour (different clock). He was still not crucified yet but was being judged before Pilate. This was at about 6 a.m.

So three hours later He had carried the cross up to Golgotha (with some help) and was crucified.

Matthew, Mark, Luke, and Acts use Hebrew time for their reckoning. John uses Roman time. Another example of this is in John 18:28 -- early morning refers to the fourth Roman watch, which was 3 a.m. to 6 a.m.

"DOES SCIENCE PROVE THE BIBLE WRONG?"

Some people are convinced that it does. They read in the Bible, for example, that the stars are fixed in the "roof" of the world like luminous ornaments, which is the way they appeared to the eyes of the author of Genesis. Moses was a bedouin who dwelt in the desert, not an astrophysicist. Later scientific knowledge proves that the stars are incandescent bodies moving in space. Although some are willing to acknowledge that God created the universe, these scientific minded folks refuse to believe the Biblical account in which apparently it all took place in six days. Also, they contend that the scientific evidences of evolution appear to contradict the Bible in this instance. As far as Christians are concerned, there can be no real conflict between scientific truth and religious truth. From the time of Moses down to the present day, science has opened the doors to many of the earth's physical secrets - including in our own time, the fantastic secret of atomic energy. There will be undoubtedly occur, in the unforseeable future, even more revolutionary discoveries. But the fact remains that science has yet to produce any evidence that discredits the basic truths of Holy Scripture. The Bible, to begin with, is a book of religion - not a scientific textbook. The Book of Genesis should be regarded therefore, not as a scientific explanation of the heavens and the earth, but as an exposition of certain divine truths. These include such matters as the creation of all things - the creation of man as the object of God's special providence - the unity of the human race - the loss of man's original state of blessedness through original sin - God's promise and plan of redemption. In writing of these things, the authors of the Old Testament were divinely protected against error. God did not, however, stand over them and dictate what they wrote. Their writings, therefore, while recording basic truths, are clothed in language forms common to their primitive time, and are influenced by cultural and scientific concepts far less enlightened than our own. A correct appraisal of the Book of Genesis, and the history of Creation, (as well as the rest of the Bible) requires an understanding of the meanings which the Old Testament authors intended to convey, and an appreciation of the language forms, philosophy and mores of their times.





Did The Infant Jesus go into Egypt or not???

The infant Christ was taken into Egypt [Matt 2:14,15,19,21,23]

....or....

The infant Christ was not taken into Egypt [Luke 2:22, 39]

Luke does not say that the infant was not taken into Egypt as neither account is exhaustive (those who look for contradictions often overlook the fact that Biblical accounts are rarely exhaustive in their scope). We can easily harmonize the accounts as follows:

Journey of Joseph and Mary from Nazareth to Bethlehem; birth of the child; presentation in the Temple; return to Bethlehem; visit of the Magi; flight into Egypt; return to settle in Nazareth.

Default Occult crimes part 2

The Occult: It Isn't just for pale skinned portly bookish types, it's also for con artists, sociaopaths, psychos, perverts, and homicidal killers!
Do people into the occult ever commit violent crimes, or is it all just "xtian propaganda"?

2000 Prince William County, VA Michael Lenz, a drifter serving 29 years in prison for burglary and firearm possession, converted to Asatru (Odinism), a Neopagan religion that worships Thor, and started a prison chapter called Ironwood Kindred. During a ceremony, Lenz with the help of fellow inmate and Odinist, Jeffrey Remington, kills fellow inmate and Odinist Brent Parker. "I called [Parker] up to the altar..." Lenz testified at his trial. "And I pulled a knife out of my pocket and I said, 'Are you trying to take it to the next step?' And he said, 'Yes, I am.' And so I stabbed him."In prisons across the United States, the number of converts has increased in recent years, according to experts, some of whom say prisoners find encouragement for violence in the gods they worship. "This is a warrior thing," said Heidi Beirich, deputy director of the Intelligence Project for the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups and extremist organizations. "What they take out of it is violence, physical dominance and racial purity. To them, Thor represents the ultimate white male." Beirich said there are racist and nonracist versions of the religion in prisons and among the general population. Remington was sentenced to death for Parker's slaying, but he killed himself on death row in 2004. Parker was executed in 2006. He practiced Odnism even on death row, not seeing how it had ruined his life. (AP)
*******************
2000, Murfreesboro, Tennessee; Alonzo South, 31, pleaded guilty to three counts of aggravated sexual battery. He was sentenced to 24 years in prison. South admitted that on at least three occasions over the last two years he participated in Satanic rituals in which a nude girl under the age of 10 was sexually touched. Court records say the child, who was the daughter of a woman involved in the Satanic group, was raped in a home, the nearby woods, a shed, a pickup truck and a car. See, (The Tennessean, Sept. 30, 2000).
*******************
2000, Nashville, Tennessee; A Federal judge was asked to hold the State of Tennesee in contempt of court in Feb. for its continued failure to provide court-ordered and doctor-prescribed mental health services to a severely traumatized 17-year-old victim (called "Sara C. to protect her identity) of rape as part of a Satanic ritual,. A State advocacy group, Tennessee Justice Center, filed a class action lawsuit against the state for failure to properly administer the appeals procedure for the health care plan enrollees of TennCare, (Tennessee Behavioral Health). The 17 yr. old victim was just one of the people named in the settlement but she was left without proper care until this motion was filed. In April, the state agreed to properly attend to her care.(AP)

2000 Grand Island, NY Wiccan James R. Walsh was charged with first-degree murder for the death of his father, 42-year-old James L. Walsh. James L. Walsh's body was found in the back of a delivery van. Timothy J. Vlock, 20, was charged with being an accessory to the killing. Vlock told police that he watched Walsh perform a Wiccan ritual before going into the bedroom and holding a pillow over his sleeping father's head and killing him, according to search warrants filed in district court. Police said they confiscated an altar made from a box, two candles, a dragon statue, dragon cards and a homemade bong from the Walshes' apartment. Zerlina Eischeid a Wiccan friend of Walsh naievely told the press "Our magic is just like a Christian or Catholic praying," LOL! Excuse me, but Christians don't smother people in their sleep as part of prayer! Someone get that kid a copy of Christianity For Dummies or something. The occult attracts mentally unstable people, it isn't just "xtian propaganda", deal with it. (AP)

2000 Kent, New York Patricia Ann Garofalo, 39, was charged with two counts of fourth-degree grand larceny. The police said she used her employer's telephone and credit card numbers to make calls to psychic hotlines totalling $4700. Garofalo called many hot lines, including Eclipse Psychic, for $4.59 per minute, Voice of Astrology, which offers personal astrology consultations by phone costing $95 for 30 minutes, and weekly chart readings for $249 per month. Garofalo told police she started calling the hot lines after her boyfriend broke up with her. Detective Gerald Locascio of the Kent Police Department said, ''We asked her if the psychics told her we'd catch her, and she said no, but that she had a feeling we would.'' Gee, you don't suppose psychics and astrology are a load of bunk, do you? (N.Y. Times 8-25-2000)

2000 Buenos Aires, Argentina The mutilated body of Juan Carlos Vazquez was found on Monday surrounded by his two daughters, Silvina, 21 and Gabriela 29, who stabbed their father 100 times and ate part of his face. Police revealed details of the strange crime, announcing that the three of them belonged to a cult known as the "Alchemy Center for Transmutation." According to the police, apparently the father and daughters engaged in a ritual that ended with the murder of Juan Carlos Vazquez. Juan Carlos' body was found not only with 100 knife wounds, but also marked with cuts forming a strange figure. The killing took place in the living room, after the furniture was moved to one side. In the place were found cups with strange liquids and a book of "alchemy rites." When the police entered the home, the two daughters were screaming in a state of shock, one invoking Satan, the other one saying that Satan had finally left her father's body. According to Jose Maria Baamonde, a psychologist from Fundacion Spes, a Catholic institution dedicated to studying the growing number of sects and cults, the cult to which the Vazquez' belonged "is the type of organization that is becoming tremendously popular by combining some elements of Gnosticism and strange formulas and rites which they claim have been inherited from the ancient Alchemists." Baamonde explained that, despite the sect's self-portrayal as an institution devoted to self-knowledge and self-discipline, "some of their rites explicitly invoke the presence and power of the Devil.

2000 Warsaw, Poland; In April A 19-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy were killed during a ritual Satanic Black Mass in southern Poland, police said after finding the cut up and burned bodies. The two victims were members of a sect that staged the black mass in a disused bunker on the outskirts of the town of Ruda Slaska, but they did not know they were to die. Another teenage cult member who survived was taken to the hospital with multiple knife wounds. Satanists Tomasz Suszyna,and Robert Krakowian plead guilty to the murders & sentenced to life in prison.

*******************
2000 Franklin County, OH In march A mother and father who had their children taken away by child protective services failled to comply with the reunification plans. The court stated that in addition to physical abuse and neglect of the children, Satanic occult practices were "commonplace" at the household. After being in counseling for over three years, the mother continued to deny what happened to her children and claimed "an inability to remember" the abuse, rather than denying it. There was even testimony that appellant mother could also "not recall" taking blood and hair from the children as part of satanic rituals, but didn't deny it. And the reason some social worker thought these nutcases should get their kids back after a few parenting classes was...??? At any rate, the children were later adopted out. (AP)

2000 Aug. Brasilia, Brazil -- Brazilian police said on Friday they arrested two Quimbanda priests for the murder of a 6-year-old boy who bled to death in a black-magic ceremony. In statements to police, Joaquim Alves, 71, and his girlfriend Priscila Souza Ferreira, 22, blamed each other for the murder of Carlos Andres de Jesus Barros, who disappeared in the impoverished Brazilian state of Bahia. Soares said the two voodoo priests killed the boy after Alves' 10-year-old son led him to the house. Alves told police that his girlfriend has tried to kill other children as well. "We are investigating the possibility they have killed other children. This, unfortunately, is a possibility, but I am not able to say more at this time," Soares said. The boy was found dead at the bottom of a well with his clothes removed, his hands and feet bound and two puncture wounds in his stomach, authorities said. The couple led police to the body after their shantytown neighbours tipped-off authorities. "One neighbour called, saying the boy kept crying and screaming, that he was suffering," said lead investigator Juliana de Oliveira Soares. "Inside the house, we found a series of religious icons, all of them of spirits that do harm. Then we found the body." Enraged after learning of the murder, townspeople on Friday destroyed Alves' makeshift home in the tropical city of Vitoria da Conquista. Some leaders of the Afro Brazilian religious culture tried to distance themselves from the slaying, just like Satanic groups do in the U.S.A do when a Satanist sacrifices someone to Satan. "These people, these are witch-doctors. They have nothing to do with any houses of worship here," said Antonio Bispo, an official at the Bahian Federation of Afro Cults. (Reuters)

1999 August Albuquerque, NM - A 20-year-old man who reportedly scrawled satanic symbols and wanted to be known as the "Dutch Master Killer" has been arrested in the killing of a bisexual man. Marine Lance Cpl. Ryan S. Davis of Albuquerque was arrested on a warrant out of New Mexico. Great to have Satanists in the military, ain't it? David Perea Jr., was shot apparently for no other reason than his sexual orientation, said Albuquerque Police Department Violent Crimes Detective Rick Foley."I've not heard of us having a homicide related to a hate crime before in Albuquerque. I cannot recall anything in the 15 years I've been here where (a killing was) related to anyone's orientation," said Marlene Thomas, a police records supervisor. Apparently Satanists can be first in something, after all. Police and the district attorney's office are looking into whether Davis was involved in other violent crimes, said Julie Altwies, Bernalillo County deputy district attorney. She said such incidents may have taken place in Bernalillo County and in other states but gave no specifics.Foley said Davis admitted to killing Perea and also "confessed to committing some robberies in Albuquerque" but gave no details.

1999, Allentown, Georgia Minnie Pearl Thompson, 44, was considered a "root worker" (i.e. Voodoo sorceress) amongst her local community. Her money spells appraently didn't work, becuase she had to suplement her income by selling crack. The Ocmulgee Drug Task Force discovered she was moving over a quarter of a pond of crack per week. Police wiretaps discovered Minnie had buried a dead chicken in her yard "for protection". When police raided her house, they discovered, among buring candles, roots, voodoo dolls and such things, and white powder scattered on the floor.

He told drug agents she must have put roots on him to make him join her drug scheme."If he'd had his way, the roots would have been his defense," Bache said. "He really, really believed that's what happened to him." Rozier told the agents her spell entered him through the food she fed him. Full of remorse and shame, he told Bache: "I should have left those biscuits alone." Indeed, he should have left it all alone and stuck with Jesus! He got 18 monhts in the Atlanta Pen. (AP)

1999 Tulsa, OK -James Ryan Bunnell originally told the cops he had gotten a gun from his parents' dresser drawer to kill a skunk the family dogs were chasing and then tripped over the threshold when he went back into the house, accidently killing his 15 year old brother. If he hadn't been smoking pot when the police arrived, it might have made his story more believable. The police really doubted his story when they found a blood soaked pillow with four bullet holes in it. Later the landlord discovered occult books & the Satanic writings of Brunnell's in a Bible. Bunnell stated in his writings that he was the "Son of Satan" and desired to kill his entire family as a sacrifice to the Devil, according to testimony heard in Rogers County District Court. Bunnell also wrote, "I want to rape young girls and feed upon their flesh." Perhaps he was imitating Anton LaVey, who admitted to dining on the leg of a 20 year old girl. Bunnell pleaded guilty to manslaughter and recieved 35 years in prison.(AP)

1999 Ft. Lauderdale, FL Darrel Wayne Harris, 17 was tried for attempted murder as an adult for repeatedly stabbing a friend he asked to participate in a Satanic ritual. The attack caught the victim, Robert Menendez, 22, and the ritual's other participants by surprise, officials said. Authorities said the two struck up an acquaintance through e-mail and an interest in Satanic web sites, which they frequently visited at public libraries. They met in a wooded area along S.W. 20th Street around 4:15 a.m. to perform the ritual along with Harris' unidentified girlfriend and at least one other person, Detective Mike Reed, a police spokesman, said. Investigators said the two sliced their hands, mixed their blood and drew a pentagram in the dirt while chanting. Harris then allegedly took the bloodshed one step farther and turned the butcher knife on Menendez, striking him as many as nine times in the neck, Urruella said. "He was very lucky to have survived," Urruella added.(AP)

1998 BRADENTON, Fla. Paula Green-Albritton along with her son Jimmy Lee Clarke, owners of Green's Funeral Home in Bradenton,Florida, were arrested after police discovered she stuffed voodoo dolls into a corpse in a death curse against her competitors in the burial business and other enemies. Albriton invoked the voodoo deity Damballah in the hope that people whose names she had written on notes pinned to the dolls would die. She allegedly severed the left hand of the corpse of the corpse and placed 12 dolls inside the chest cavity. ``These dolls were placed inside a body that was to be buried and will decompose with time,'' voodoo expert Rafael Martinez said in his report, which police gave to Reuters. Richard Woodie of the Westside Funeral Home was one of least two people whose names were attached to the dolls who were connected to the funeral home business. ``Be gone and may you rot in the grave Richard Woodie -- Damballah curse him as I curse him, and spoil him as a spoil him -- by the fire at night,'' one note said. Green-Albritton was arrested last month a. She pleaded not guilty Friday to tampering with a corpse. No date was set for trial. Not only did the curse not work, but Albriton faced charges that carry a maximum sentence of 15 years in jail or a $10,000 fine.(Reuters)

1998 Sayville, NY Life imitates art. Serena Martin was said to have several mutual friends with Melissa Joan Hart, star of the sitcom Sabrina The Teenage Witch ( I like that show, actually). Both grew up in the same town of Sayville. Like Sabrina, Sareena (she even had a witch name!) used to cast spells one her hated rival, also a pretty cheerleader. But unlike Sabrina, Sareena's magic didn't actually work (well, neither did Sabrina's, it was all special FX). Sareena Martin and victim's own mom killed the popular cheerleader Charity Miranda by tying her up and putting a plastic bag over her head. Police said Miranda's mother, Vivian, 39, and her daughters recently began studying the West Indian religion of Santeria, and "raised religion to a heightened degree." At first they told police it was done to "drive the demons out", but later admitted the girl was a Santeria sacrifice, apparently having gotten no results with killing chickens and goats. Police also found occult symbols on the window of the crime scene, and other items associated with Santeria. The pair are now facing life in prison. Coincidentally, Sayville's High School has a rivalry with Amityville...yes, that Amityville. When you have Jesus, life is much easier. Before you smother someone with a plastic bag, give Christ a try, OK?(AP)

Detectives found dead animals and Satanic symbols near the scene of the crime. Geoghegan's body was found on 2-26-98, wrapped in a blanket in the basement of a vacant mental hospital that police said was frequented by teens who were into their own brand of satanic worship. Geoghegan was a friend of the three suspects and voluntarily went to the hospital on the night of her slaying. She had been strangled with a belt. The case was profiled on "America's Most Wanted" which lead to the capture of the fugitive Scott in Alabama in 1999. Birmingham police found Scott in a section of town known as Five Points South, a popular spot with youth who are into alternative culture. Police said Scott had been hard to capture because he lived under numerous aliases, including the name of a dead friend, Jimmy Ronald Turner. Mason and Scott were convicted of murder, and Mangham pleaded no contest to manslaughter. (AP)

1998 Donskoi, Russia In Feb., Police in Donskoi arrested members of a satanic cult whose ages range from under 20 to 80. The cult members stood trial on charges of two ritual murders, but the regional court returned the case for re-investigation. The prosecutor's office appealed the court decision to the Russian Supreme Court which ruled that the regional court gave the evidence inadequate scrutiny. After re-investigation, in 1999 A court of the city of Donskoi sentenced the cult's memebrs to eight to nine years in prison. The cult's leader Yelena Kuzina, 80, was sentenced to five years in prison and her oldest son, second in command in the cult, to ten years. Most of cult members are teens.

Finish Authorities had recently become concerned over acts of vandalism, such as desecration of graveyards, suggesting young Finns were showing an increased interest in Satanism. Police said, however, that the Hyvinkaa case was the first murder linked to a Satanic cult. The sex and ages of the members were two men 23, 20, and a girl, of 17. Body parts of the victim were found on rubbish tips in the Hyvinkaa area, which lead to arrests.The trial revealed that the murder involved torture, mutliation, canibalism and necrophilia.

One of the three had a previous conviction for the attempted burning of a church. The court also found the 23-year-old man guilty of torturing and killing his dog as a sacrifice on Hallowe'en. Amazingly, the leader (the 23 y.o.) only recieved a 21 year sentence and the other two receieved even lighter sentences. (Interfax)

1998 Death Valley, California After an expose in Time magazine, Castaneda disappeared from the public view in 1973, and began in the last decade of his life to organize a secretive group of devoted followers. Castenada started his cult comprised mostly of former and current female lovers that he called his "witches". After Casteanda's death in 1998, the female cult members dissapeared. Witches Florinda Donner-Grau and Taisha Abelar, Kylie Lundahl, and Amalia Marquez vanished the day after Castaneda's death. A few weeks later, Patricia Partin, Castaneda's adopted daughter as well as his lover (sick!), disappeared. Some former Castaneda associates suspect the missing women committed suicide because of remarks they made shortly before vanishing, and Castaneda's frequent discussion of suicide in cult meetings. Achieving transcendence through "a death nobly chosen" had long been central to his ludicrous teachings, along with drug use and "magic". The skeletal remains of Castenada's adopted daughter/lover Patricia Partin were found in the California desert in 2006. DNA identified the remains. The remains of the other cult members have yet to be found. It might be worth noting that another hippie drug guru, also went to the desert, and called his female lovers/followers witches too. His name was Charles Manson. (AP)

1998 Melbourne, Australia Wiccan High Priest Angus Fletcher, a ounsellor in Caulfield, was sentenced to 10 years' jail for having had sex with two 15 y.o. girls who'd been sent to him for help. Prosecution said Fletcher virtually enslaved his victims with drugs & "Wiccan witch-talk" so they'd believe being tied up, spanked, put in a dog's collar and sexually abused was "part of a pagan rite". Fletcher said he believed it too. Swearing an oath on a charred stick, he said Wicca not only allowed him to have sex with the girls, one of whom was a reincarnated "Celtic princess" <snicker>, but to cast a spell to stop them testifying against him, even if it meant their death. It also apparently let him advertise one on the internet as a "submissive teen schoolgirl" who was "bruisable and will take belt and paddle". Justice David Harper, hoever, declared: "Religion can never be a cloak for the sexual exploitation of children." Fletcher would later claim he was being "persecuted by Christians"(Reuters)

1997 Chicago IL Dr. Michael Swango, the illusive "Doctor of Death" is finally captured. Swango murdered at least 30 patients and colleagues during his career. Swango was first suspected of murdering patients at an Ohio hospital he worked at as far back as 1983. Swango tried to poison his co-workers with a pitcher of iced tea, which got him arrested. Police searched his home and found...you guessed it...tons of occult and witchcraft literature and paraphenalia, in addition to poisons and how-to-kill survivalist books. Convicted of aggravated battery from poisoning his coworkers, he serves 5 years, is released, re-establishes himself as an MD with forged papers and gets a job at a WV hospital. In 1992 "Dr. Satan" landed a job at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Swango got cocky enough to apply to the AMA who ran a background check and discovered who he really was. The AMA told the boobs at the VA, who then simply discharged Swango to avoid a scandal, and Dr. Death is free to murder yet again. Your tax dollars at work, folks. The AMA re-discovered Swango posing as a Psychiatrist Northport Veterans Administration Medical Center , and once again his patients were dying for no reason (perhaps other than sacrifices to Satan, that is). Eventually, word got out about Swango, and he fled overseas. In November 1994 he surfaced in Zimbabwe and got a job at Mnene Hospital...and his patients began dying mysteriously. A year later the poisonings were traced to him, and he was arrested in Zimbabwe... and escaped before his trial, and hid out in Africa and Europe. In March 1997, he applied for a job at the Royal Hospital in Dharan, Saudi Arabia, using false credentials. In June 1997 on a flight that had a layover in Chicago, he was arrested by Federal authorities. Three years later, on July 11, 2000, Michael J. Swango plead guilty to killing three of his patients, and fraud charges & sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. Now he'll have plenty of time to read all his occult books. How much do you want to bet he gets made a trustee in the prison infermary?(Reuters)

1997 Paducah, Kentucky – Michael Carneal, 14, was known to his classmates as a Satanist and frequently dressed in all black. On 12-01-97 he opened fire on a small prayer group of Christians. Three girls died as martyrs for Christ and five other students were wounded for Christ. Another student tackled him, and it was soon revealed that Carneal had a pistol, two rifles, and two shotguns, along with 700 rounds of ammunition, all of it stolen. He’d threatened earlier to “shoot up” the school, but no one had taken him seriously. Could it be because Satanists are always saying how they don't kill people and so no one believed him?(AP)

1997 Stolkholme, Sweden An Rosicrucian occult order called the "Order of The Solar Temple", that based itself on the teachings of Aleister Crowley and the Golden Dawn killed themselves in a mass suicide claiming 48 members. Farewell letters left by the believers stated that they believed they were leaving to escape the "hypocrisies and oppression of this world." and that they were going to the star Sirus. Its top 33 members were known as the Elder Brothers of the Rosy Cross (an alternative name for the Rosicrucians), and were headquartered in Zürich, Switzerland. Swiss police were on a heightened state of suicide watch in anticipation to the summer solstice on June 21. Gerard Ramseyer, the top justice official in Geneva, said police was maintaining a "discreet surveillance" of 10 people believed to be known members of the suicidal Solar Temple Sect. Two of the 10 under surveillance are believed to be children. All the suicide/murders and attempts occurred around the dates of the equinoxes and solstices which are occult holidays to Wiccans, Neopagans, and Tehelmites. Police think there are at least 100 people in Switzerland who were formerly close to or had been members of the suicidal cult. It is believed that The Solar Temple group continues to exist, with thirty surviving members in Quebec at the St-Anne-de-la-Pérade center, with from 140 to 500 members remaining worldwide. (NOTE: A Rosicrucian occult is hardly Christian, but this group is misidentified as a "Christian" group by the Ontario Consultants for Religous Tolerance. The group is run by two Neopagans and an Athiest, and seem to have tolerance for anything but Christians. ) (The Florida Times Union, July 22, 1997)

There is no defence against an evil which only the victims and the perpetrators know exists.
