Are They Talking About Us Again?
WorldNetDaily writes: A summary of Rapacki’s “report” – which insists on refering to Obama as “Obama/Soetoro” – hit the internet a couple of weeks ago. Much hilarity ensued, however, when it was quickly noted that Rapacki is best-known as an exponent of “Satanic panic” conspiracy theories. Kerr Cuhulain’s website Witchvox has a profile of the man dating from 2002 which raises serious questions about his credentials, qualifications, and integrity. In particular, he is alleged to have lied about a girl having been sacrificed by a coven of Satanists in Halloween 1988 when in fact he knew she was still alive.
Reviewer from goddiscussion.com writes: [The Satanic Bible] is truly an amazing book. LaVey brings Satanism out of the shadows and reveals what it truly is. There are no demons, no Satan-worshippers, no supernatural aspects of any kind, just pure and simple self-indulgence. You will find no flimsy “turn the other cheek” mentality in this book. Satan stands as a symbol for the carnality of mankind, for the law of “might is right,” and LaVey blasts the life-denying quality of fundamentalist religions, with their proscriptions and their guilt. If you’re a thinking person and an atheist, you’ll love “The Satanic Bible.”
Ricky writes: The Devil didn’t really come of age in film until the late 60’s, if you ask me. The United States, unconditionally a christian state, was fertile ground for religious paranoia in the closing years of the 60’s. The counter culture was gaining ground in the suburbs and along with a new sexuality and liberal drug use (and the expanded consciousness that comes with it) came a wave of alternative spirituality. Anton LaVey founded The Church of Satan in San Francisco in 1966 and freaked out just about everyone in the world. The metric volume of balls it must have taken to establish satanism as a recognized spiritual lifestyle is staggering, but aside from representing the greatest fear of Straight America as well as personifying the new body of indulgence that would define the 70’s it did great things for the horror genre.
