FOR RELIGIOUS AND CIVIL RIGHTS

Satanism 
Linked to Serial Crimes

January 15, 2013

Bill Donohue comments on a media blackout:

“Jimmy Savile beat and raped a 12-year-old girl during a secret satanic ritual in a hospital.” This is the opening line in an English newspaper’s story on Sunday about BBC child rapist Jimmy Savile. The BBC icon, who died in 2011, is believed to be responsible for abusing at least 450 males and females, aged eight to 47.

Dr. Valerie Sinason, president of the Institute of Psychotherapy and Disability in the U.K., revealed that the aforementioned girl told her in 1992 what happened to her in 1975. Savile wore a robe and a mask while he abused the girl in the basement of a hospital; during the rape, Savile and his cohorts (also pedophiles) chanted, “Hail Satan” in the candle-lit room. Five years later, Dr. Sinason says, Savile abused another girl during a Black Mass ceremony; she, too, heard Latin chanting and witnessed a group of men wearing Satanist regalia. Neither girl knew one another and lived in different parts of the country.

Trevor L. Todd was a classmate of the Newtown, Connecticut mass killer, Adam Lanza. He says Lanza was a devil worshipper who had his own website on the Internet. Indeed, he says the website “had the word ‘Devil’ on it in red Gothic-style letters against a black background. It gave me the chills. It was just so weird.”

Is there a Satanic connection that helps explain the serial rapes of Jimmy Savile and the serial killings of Adam Lanza? We don’t have enough evidence at the moment to say with certainty. But we do know that the media have shown very little interest in exploring this line of inquiry.

While issues like gun control, mental illness and violent video games are worthy of serious discussion, not to research the role that Satanism may have played is simply irresponsible. It is worth recalling that Charles Manson once told the press, “I am the Devil.” It begs the question: What exactly are the media afraid of?

Donohue is another guy who could do his cause a lot of good by getting the hell off the stage.

I believe Satan is real and "roams the earth, patrolling it," but statements like this, where he admits the connection is tenuous, but hammers it anyway, are nuts.

What? You want to demonize the devil worshippers? That smacks of "intolerance". Everyone good secular schoolboy knows that every religion is just like every other one...

FT, when you enter the pigs pen, you wind up smelling like a pig, so it goes when you enter a progressives blog.

SilverFiddle, my friend, the evils of this world cannot be overcome simply by adopting a manner of bland sweet reasonableness, although I understand what you mean.

Remember please that I'm the guy who has often said that Glenn Beck might well be in the pay of "the enemy," because his clownish, quasi-hysterical delivery of valuable information too often makes the truth he reveals seem an out-and-out lie or a grotesque distortion at best.

Style IS important.

I have noticed that the more strident "we" become, the more civilized and erudite the left appears.

They are without doubt a wily set of devils. They always seem to be one step ahead of "us," don't they?

FreeThinke said...

I don't agree, Anonymous.

As long as one rejects the clich├ęs of rage-addicted rhetoric and refuses to participate in foolish shouting matches, telling the truth - as one understands it -- in places where Truth is needed most could only be a good thing.

Friction can be very helpful at times. Without it we would never have discovered how to produce fire, would we?

The discourse of the "hysteric" is a "good" thing? Only if there's an "analyst" around to create a sinthome for the hysteric to decode and return him to reality.

@ Anon: "Agree or not you have lost all your credibility .

Ass kisser! "


Where the hell did that come from?

FreeThinke enters Left Blogistan to herald the truth, not to agree with them, and he certainly has not kissed any ass over there.

Rock on, FT! You are doing The Lord's work!

I agree with Silverfiddle. FT, walks where others including angels fear to tread.

This is an interesting topic. I have come across some interesting thoughts on this in some different places. Some that question the influence of today's pop culture in the proliferation of evil in our world. I think it makes sense that the depravity inundating young minds coming from the music industry and the Hollywood culture do have a big impact on the thought and actions of young people and hence the depraved actions we can all enumerate from the recent and not so recent past.

Does flashing the sign of Baphomet signify an esoteric signal to the insiders that you are also an "insider" or a wannbe insider? I'm thinking it does.

Waylon said...

Egads! Everybody from Kid Rock to Sarah Palin and the FLOTUS are flashing the sign of Satan...

You dump a pantload like that and it's not unreasonable to ask for at least modest evidence.

The pure stinky cheese, FT.

Documented instances of Satan worship are exceedingly rare.

What is Satanist regalia? How was the victim able to recognize "Satanist attire"?

Lanza's site contained the word "devil" and was weird. Wow, what's next, we find out he was an al-Qaeda sympathizing Yazidi?

Silverfiddle said...

@ Ducky: "What is Satanist regalia?"

Maybe he was wearing a devils food cake on his head...

Waylon said...

So, in the case of Jimmy Sovile, there's nothing to see here? Just move along?

Ducky, are you saying in the case of Sovile that a cigar is just a good smoke, or what?

Faith aka Connie said...

There was a huge uproar not too long ago in Vatican City over the disappearance of a teenaged girl, Emanuela Orlandi, almost thirty years ago, because new information had emerged through a priest who believes she was kidnapped for Vatican sex parties by a group that also practices satanism.

FreeThinke said...

The conversation gets even more fascinating -- and encouraging -- when I'm away.

Perhaps I ought to absent myself more often? ;-)

Thanks, SilverFiddle and Waylon both, for the support. I jettisoned the last remark from "A-ninny-mess" before I read your responses. I never take stupid insults like that seriously, so please don't worry on my account, but your kind words are much appreciated.

FreeThinke said...

Ducky,

I've never thought you were in any way a Devil's Disciple, but I do think you are -- shall we say -- "determinedly naive?"

Whenever there's a controversy, you never fail to come down foursquare on the side of perceived evil. You don't even pretend to be curious, what you don't want -- or don't think you ought -- to believe is always "a pantload."

It's as predictable as sunrise in the east and sunset in the west.

I guess you just like to play Devil's Advocate, n'est-ce-pas?

FreeThinke said...

Faith,

I haven't checked your link yet, but I know from long years of observation that no matter who you are, what organization you identify with, what you stand for or how much good you or your institutional affiliate has done, there will always be those busily gathering evidence and building a case against you and the things you hold most dear.

Not you, personally, of course, but you meaning "people in general."

Instead of living in peace, harmony, and mutual productivity, most seem to thrive on venting hostility and indulging in conflict.

I published a small essay on this subject in the early days of this blog called ENEMETICS. It may not be destined to become a classic, but it might be worth revisiting.

In my personal opinion it is NEVER a good idea to condemn anyone or anything based solely on the worst things one might discover about some relatively minute aspect of an organization or the vilest deed a targeted individual may have performed at some point in an otherwise blameless existence.

Islamists and Marxists -- like Nazis, the Mafia, the Nation of Islam, and ugly, stupid, ill-natured organizations like The Westboro Baptist Church, et al. are notable exceptions to that general rule. I don't believe things wholly and solely devoted to evil purposes should be tolerated at all.

But then one has to ask, "Who gets to decide what are and are not "evil purposes?" That makes it much more difficult.

I know lots of de facto Communists, atheists and weirdos who really are very nice people once you get to penetrate their surface behavior.

Persecuting perceived evil has often proven itself historically to be the Greatest Evil of All.

FreeThinke said...

As for sinthome and its like, Thersites, I have pretty much rejected all the nouveau arcana conjured up in the twentieth century.

Call me mentally lazy if you wish, but I truly believe "there is nothing new under the sun," -- the intellectuals trying desperately to justify their existence and make names for themselves, keep trying to pretend old, half-forgotten bits of lore are "new discoveries," by giving them cryptic-sounding names that smack of recondite erudition.

Sorry, I don't buy it.

I am a man of faith. I'm sorry if that offends you.

I am certainly not anti-THOUGHT, but I'm afraid -- having seen the pretentious crap that passes for profundity conjured up in the past century or so -- that I must admit to being anti-INTELLECTUAL.

Please bear in mind that Marx and his early disciples, Gramsci and members of The Frankfurt School are categorized as "intellectuals."

I respect Darwin, and believe his findings broke new ground in human quest to better comprehend reality, but I despise the USES to which leftist intellectuals have put his work.

You must forgive me, but one of my main purposes in life is find and put to use reasons to AFFIRM faith. I have no wish whatsoever to DENY it.

"In that way madness lies."

Jack Camwell said...

FT,

Perhaps Ducky is trying to give the guy a fair shake? That seems to be something rather rare these days. We hear that something nefarious is going on, and we automatically assume it must be correct.

Also, in re your anti-intellectual comment, why should you be anti-itnellectual? Sure, the Marxists were considered intellectuals, and you say that with derision, but does a person's ideology have to jive with your own in order for that person to be a legitimate intellectual?

Like the label or not, but you're an intellectual. The term is used to describe one's pursuits, not necessarily the result of their pursuits. The life of the mind can obviously lead people in many different directions.

Thersites said...

Actually the term was invented by Jacques Lacan to help distinguish a neurosis from a psychosis... something Freud failed to do. And sorry that you've taken the Charles Murray's approach to "excellence" by denying all advancements of the past 100 years. It's not all junk, IMO.

"I am certainly not anti-THOUGHT, but I'm afraid -- having seen the pretentious crap that passes for profundity conjured up in the past century or so -- that I must admit to being anti-INTELLECTUAL."

You must bear some responsibility for the class of book you have chosen to read -- and not to read.

Some of the most amazing thoughts have occurred to people for the first time in the past century. (physics is perhaps the best example)

You don't have to support every school, movement or fad -- even those followed or founded by genuine intellectuals -- but anti-intellectualism throws many babies out with the bathwater.

jez said...

"Persecuting perceived evil has often proven itself historically to be the Greatest Evil of All."

agreed.

FreeThinke said...

Jez,

I apologize if I gave the impression that that I am anti-Science or anti-Engineering, or against all the great advances in Medicine and Surgery, etc. Certainly not! But then, I have never categorized Scientists, those devoted to Medical Research, and professionals in fields of Practical Endeavor as "intellectuals."

That's why I specifically stated I am not anti-THOUGHT. I should have added that I am very much pro-CREATIVITY -- of the salubrious variety.

I was aiming at all the theories and popular notions in Political Philosophy and Psychology that have worked together to advance the false belief that we, as individuals, are not responsible for our behavior, but somehow "Society" is.

The "intellectuals" I targeted are those fiendishly clever types who've perverted our concept of Right and Wrong, and undermined the moral foundations by which we have tried to live by promoting seductive, meretricious, fundamentally destructive "theories" that have persuaded younger generations to believe that kicking over the traces, promoting disrespect for one's elders,staging endless challenges to and rebellion against authority, and unlimited self-indulgence are really really "cool."

~ FreeThinke



FreeThinke said...

Thersites, I don't think "all" the advances of the past hundred years are worthless by a long shot, but there's no doubt that the Twentieth Century was the most violent and destructive in all recorded history. I believe that happened because of the rise of inimical philosophies and social theories that promoted resentment of life, selfishness, callous disregard of others, and cynicism as virtuous.

The near-canonization of Envy, Spite, Malice, Disorder, Rebellion and Destruction as worthy combined with the advances in Technology that made wholesale slaughter on a scale so massive as to make the work of the Roman Legions, the Huns, the Mongol Hordes and Napoleon look like child's play in comparison.

Despite -- or possibly because of -- all the "advances," we managed to lose our moral compass.

Without that our cleverest, most brilliant achievements are most often put to evil purposes.

-FJ said...

I, too, look upon the sophists with disdain... but then, I no longer believe it to be "entirely" their fault. You may not "like" the fact that "individual responsibility" has been weaknened and replaced with a form of collective "social" form of responsibility, but with the "fragmentation" of knowledge into narrow specialities, driven largely by the "division of labour" theory of labour and economics, it is hard to understand how things could be "otherwise". The day when a "universal genius" could comprehend it all and formulate the big-picture "grand narrative" are gone. And so we must all "muddle on" as best we can and deal with the now "unforeseeable" "black swan events" and Fukashima's as they occur, for better or worse.

I believe that Slavoj Zizek and Jacques Lacan were correct in positing that the former "Master Dialogue" has passed from the control of "singular" masters and replaced by the "capitalist system" itself... and that we are being swept along by the "vortex", so to speak.

The "corporation" has effectively beaten out the individual business owner in the competitive arena, and until that changes (if it ever does), individual responsibility seems "doomed" to only re-emerge after some great calamity occurs.

-FJ said...

The real question we face today is whether we should "embrace" this new reality and adapt, or devise methods to "return" to a system that supports "individuals" (vice corporate collectives) making the "master's" decisions.

jez said...

"I was aiming at all the theories and popular notions in Political Philosophy and Psychology that have worked together to advance the false belief that we, as individuals, are not responsible for our behavior, but somehow "Society" is."

Sounds like the kind of thing you would tell me off for suspecting of being "pseud". ;)

FreeThinke said...

"The proof of the pudding is in the eating," and all that, Jez.

In the world I choose to inhabit "RESULTS are ALL that COUNT."

However, I will admit "there is no accounting for taste."

However, when I clearly see a Bottomless Pit yawning before us, and someone tries to tell me it's really an enormous Mountain larded thickly with veins of platinum, gold and uranium, my good common sense tells me my interlocutor is spouting stuff and nonsense.

Faith aka Connie said...

Huh?

Faith aka Connie said...

I guess you are suggesting that this priest's accusations of the Vatican might be a personal vendetta of some kind? Why? There were crowds of people out protesting against the Pope when he was trying to speak, demanding that he comment on this priest's accusation. The Vatican is well known for its immoral priests, FT, there's nothing suspicious about this particular accusation in itself and the priest has a good reputation.

Faith aka Connie said...

Whatever you were saying it carries an insult to me that I don't feel like overlooking at the moment. I don't post stuff out of some knee-jerk personal antagonism of my own, I do a lot of research on the subjects I post on at my blog and that applies to comments I make elsewhere. Perhaps you think I'm "out to get" Catholics. I note that you promised to respond to at least two emails I sent you a while back on the subject and you never did. I don't know if you even read them or thought about them. I've only recently learned about the ongoing offenses of Catholicism and I've been learning a great deal that has changed my view of things. I resent your way of dealing with me. So now go ahead and delete this, "friend."

I stand by those words.

They are a general observation about humanity not an accusation against anyone in particular.

I seek always to find and explicate the general underlying principles that lie buried in and beneath the enormous piles of "specific data" we are bombarded with hourly.
