As I said, as a NeoPagan, I caught the edge of this Satanic Panic mania. I'm not a Satanist, I don't do things to children, and my morals are a lot stricter than many Christians (based on the way they behave).

Which statement would that be? The caught at the edge of the Satanic Mania? That I am not a Satanist, or that I have a strict set of Morals, that are higher than many Christians? There are multiple statements there after all?
(a) Satanic Panic Mania: I've repeatedly been accused of (as a Pagan, and thus equated to a Satanist by idiots uh I mean some Christians) sacrifice (yes I make offerings, gold, silver, etc, mead, whisky, food, not animals, not humans). This includes previous employers, random idiots in a bookstore, who stumble on a Pagan Network meeting.
(b) I'm a Neopagan, specifically a Gaelic Reconstructionist. Satan is not part of my cosmology. I'm a polytheist (a hard polytheist to be specific) as are many Hindu (though most are Soft Polytheists) . I don't follow Satan, QED I am not a Satanist.
(c) You shall have to read something. Here is an article on some of my ethical imperitives. www.seanet.com...
Or was there another statement you wish to have clarified. Be clear Like Ghee....
Satanic Panic, has been disproven. It may be attribued to False Memory Syndrome Viz Ramirez, S., et al., (2013). Creating a False Memory in the Hippocampus Science 26 July 2013: Vol. 341 no. 6144 pp. 387–91
