Here, these are just for you:

Christian Crimes Against Humanity

Christian Terrorism

The Ku Klux Klan are proponents of a fundamentalist Christian theology strongly influenced by Christian Reconstructionism, hoping to "reconstruct" the United States along biblical (primarily Old Testament) lines and establish a white-dominated theocracy.

In 1998, letters were sent to news organizations and law enforcement claiming the Army of God carried out several of the attacks attributed to Eric Rudolph. The Army of God is considered a violent offshoot of Christian Identity

Aryan Nations is a white supremacist group founded by Richard Girnt Butler as an arm of the Christian Identity group Church of Jesus Christ-Christian

The Lambs of Christ is an anti-abortion terrorist organization which holds that their activity is lawful and theologically justified: using deadly force to end abortion in the United States.[35] James Kopp, who shot and killed Dr. Barnett Slepian in 1998, was a Lambs of Christ activist and a member of the Army of God.

On July 26, 2007, 17 Christians from Poso, Indonesia, were convicted of religion-inspired terrorism under Indonesian law. Fourteen year sentences were given to two of the seventeen for their main roles in the killings, while ten were sentenced to twelve year terms. Five were convicted in separate hearings and received eight year sentences for their part in the "acts of terrorism by the use of violence." A Christian mob attacked, murdered, and beheaded two Muslim fishermen in September 2006, reportedly as retaliation for the execution in 2006 of three Christian farmers, who were convicted of leading a militant group which killed hundreds of Muslims in Poso in 2000

The National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) is a rebel group operating in Tripura, North-East India. The NLFT were declared a terrorist organization under the Indian Prevention of Terrorism Act in 2002. The NLFT manifesto says that they want to expand what they describe as the kingdom of God and Christ in Tripura.[39] They are accused of forcing indigenous tribes to give up Hinduism and become Christian in areas under their control.

The Nagaland Rebels is a coalition of rebel groups operating in Nagaland, North-East India. The largest of these is the National Socialist Council of Nagaland-Isak-Muivah (NSCN-IM), which is fighting for the establishment of a "Nagaland for Christ".

The Guardians of the Cedars is the paramilitary wing of the banned Lebanese Renewal Party, and one of several Christian militias active in the Lebanese Civil War.[47] From 1973 their slogans have included "No Palestinian will remain on Lebanese soil" and "A good Palestinian is a dead Palestinian".

Mark Juergensmeyer wrote "Like residents of Belfast and London, Americans were beginning to learn to live with acts of religious terrorism: shocking, disturbing incidents of violence laced with the passion of religion - in these cases, Christianity"

God's Army is a Christian revolutionary group in armed rebellion against the military government of Burma. God's Army consists of around 100-200 veteran fighters, and is led by two twin brothers, who are believed by their followers to be immune to bullets.[83]

The Lord's Resistance Army is a guerrilla army engaged in an armed rebellion against the Ugandan government, and is accused of many acts of mutilation, torture, rape, abduction, the use of child soldiers and a number of massacres. It is led by Joseph Kony, who proclaims himself the spokesperson of God and a spirit medium, primarily of the Christian Holy Spirit which the Acholi believe can represent itself in many manifestations.

The Concerned Christians "planned to carry out violent and extreme acts in the streets of Jerusalem at the end of 1999 to start the process of bringing Jesus back to life," and believed that being killed by police would "lead them to heaven."

In 2007 three teenagers from Burleson, Texas were charged with attempting to destroy a church with an explosive device.[115][116] Police Commander Chris Haven said that the group believes that society has become too focused on self improvement and self gratification and has lost focus on the glorification of God.[116] On July 4, police in Burleson, TX received reports of suspicious activity at a church and of a fire in a nearby field. Three men were subsequently arrested and charged with arson at a place of worship, a first-degree felony. A fourth suspect, a juvenile, who reportedly was not involved in the attempted arson, was not charged. Two of the suspects admitted to being involved in at least one other fire in a recycling bin at a different church during 2007 according to a police report. One of the three men also faced a charge of tampering/fabricating physical evidence.[117] The three self-described radical Christian activists, part of a religious group that opposes organized religion and government, have pleaded guilty to possession of an unregistered firearm categorized as a destructive device in the attempted bombings at the Burleson, TX church. Police found the bomb, a glass bottle containing a mixture of gasoline and chlorine with a cloth wick, propped against the church door after the men twice attempted to detonate the device. Michael Philip Plaisted and Jered Michael Ragon pleaded guilty December 4, 2007 and Dayton Lee Calaway pleaded guilty February 5, 2008. Punishment faced is a fine of up to $250,000 and up to 10 years in prison.[118]

So is that enough or do you need more?

Do these whackos represent Christianity? No more than the OP whackos represent Satanism.

Now back to the topic at hand which relates to the alleged satanic ritual crimes in the OP, the name of Gilles de Rais remains the historical touchstone for the satanic criminal and child abuser. Many books have been written regarding his trial, and certainly Aleister Crowley tried to exculpate him centuries later:

One of the most notorious satanic murders in UK history involved Henry Bibby who took the name "Edward Crowley" in honour of his obsession with Aleister Crowley and Crowleyian black magick:

On 12 February 2001 Henry Bibby (alias Edward Crowley) was sentenced to life imprisonment at the Old Bailey for carrying out a Crowleyite ritual of child sacrifice on an innocent twelve-year-old victim. He was obsessed with the Satanist and changed his name to “Edward Crowley” in 1998. He had stabbed the boy, Diego Pineiro-Villar, over thirty times in Covent Garden, London, on 8 May 2000. Police found a holdall 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 are a number of references to child sacrifice. The most notorious came from Aleister Crowley’s Magick in Theory and Practice. It reads: “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.”

Those of us living in the UK or in countries that relied on BBC World Service for news and information will recall the horrifying occult murder of 90 year old Mabel Leyshon:

Hardman - who had lived just a few yards away and had been Mrs Leyshon's paper boy - 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.

The prosecution said her killer drank her blood in a "macabre ritual".

After the verdict was delivered, the judge lifted a ban on naming Hardman which had been in place throughout the trial.

The prosecution said the teenager - who denied the charge - was obsessed with vampires and the occult, and had told others he wanted to kill someone in order to become immortal.

While there are a number of notorious German cases of satanist and occult crimes, arguably the greatest being the Holocaust, in more recent years it was the case of the German satanists and self-styled 'vampires'. The following is an excerpt from a BBC News story on these events:

A German couple who say they killed their friend on the orders of the devil are due to be sentenced on Thursday, concluding a case which has rocked the country.

Daniel Ruda, 26, and his wife Manuela, 23, admit killing Frank Haagen, but say they were not responsible for his death. His body was found decomposing in the couple's flat in Bochum, in the west of the country, last July. He had been battered to death with a hammer and was covered in dozens of stab wounds.

A scalpel protruded from his stomach and a pentagram, the sign of the devil, was carved into his chest.

A further telling of the events can be found in this BBC Story.

There's no point in starting with Pellevoison, I've been saying almost the same thing to her for days and it won't get through. There's no use in arguing with someone who believes Geraldo to be a legitimate journalist.

He certainly is far worse than a nutjob. Here is a link and an excerpt from the report in The - The Beast's satanic legacy lives on

THE original Aleister Crowley is now enjoying cult status on the internet, more than 50 years after his death.

He was known in his lifetime as "the Beast" and "the wickedest man alive" for his satanic beliefs and practices. He was expelled from Italy early last century after rumours of his involvement in drug fuelled orgies and the sacrifice of babies. His motto was "do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law".

He had written "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".

Diego was innocent and intelligent and after Edward Crowley killed him, possibly as a sacrifice to his namesake, police found in his scruffy holdall a sinister piece of paper.

It was covered in references to Aleister Crowley's teachings and symbols used in his Book of Thoth. Alongside were drawings of Aztec sacrifices and temples, and allusions to biblical and ancient Greek sacrifices. He had headed the plan delendus est Pineiro - Latin for "Pineiro is to be destroyed".

Whilst not readily available in English there are numerous articles on cult/occult and satanic crimes in South America. One of the most upsetting in Argentina was the case of two girls who killed their father:

BUENOS AIRES ( - The brutal murder of a 50-year-old father at the hand of his two young daughters as part of a satanic rite has shocked Argentine society and raised concern about the proliferation of satanic and other cults in Buenos Aires.

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.

Yesterday, the police revealed the first 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.

I've only read a few posts in this thread... but this stuff happens all the time.

They use the forest preserves at night when they are closed, and they perform animal and human sacrfices. Grown men. The authorities seem to know about it, and protect it.

Research Bachelor's Grove, one of the most haunted places in America.

My close friend was there at night, and stumbled upon one of these rituals, and there were a bunch of older men standing around a rock slab, sacrificing I think it was a puppy dog... but my friend saw it and his natural reaction was to shout "Holy #!", and then one of the men in black robes came after him with a knife, but he always carries one of those six inch copper pipes with he clubbed the guy in the hood and the guy fell right down. The guy was going to kill him for witnessing the ritual.

This stuff is no joke. Don't mess with Black Rituals. Reality is a delicate thing.

The furor over the Dutroux Affair remains a matter of great controversy since it began with claims of satanic rites and the involvement of very powerful people in Europe. The case was altered into the prosecution of a serial killer and a paedophile in what some have described as the worst case of media censorship in the protection of elites.

From the original story in the Sunday Times, December 29, 1996, by Peter Conradi:

"Satanic Links to Belgian Murder Trial"

Brussels Satanic sects involved in bizarre rites including human sacrifice are being linked by Belgian police with this summer's string of grisly paedophile murders in which at least four children died. Five witnesses came forward last week and described how black masses were held, at which children were killed in front of audiences said to have included prominent members of Belgian society. One investigator said it was "like going back to the Middle Ages". The tentacles of the sects appear to have stretched beyond the borders of Belgium, to Holland, Germany and even America. The witnesses - several of whom claim to have received death threats - say that young babies were handed over by their parents willingly in return for money. In other cases the victims were abducted. The witnesses, who are believed to have identified the sites where the masses took place to the police, said organisers had also photographed participants and threatened to hand over the pictures if they went to the police.

The investigation centres on Abrasa, a self-styled institute of black magic, whose headquarters in the village of Forchies-la-Marche in southern Belgium was raided by police last week. Human skulls were among the objects removed from the run down building. Forchies-la-Marche is near the city of Charleroi, where Marc Dutroux, the unemployed electrician accused of the paedophile killings, was arrested in August. The bodies of four victims of the ring were dug up at properties he owned - but he is feared to have killed many more. Police have long suspected that Dutroux, a convicted paedophile, was part of an international network which abducted children, sexually abused them and then killed them. Their activities appear to have been financed by the sale of pornographic videos filmed by members of the ring. However the revelation of a possible Satanic link has added a bizarre twist to the affair, which has shaken the police and judiciary and plunged Belgium into an unprecedented wave of soul searching over the past few months. Investigators are still trying to determine the precise nature of the links between the Satanists and the paedophile group. In a separate twist, a Belgian newspaper claimed yesterday that a former European Commisioner was among a group of Judges, Senior Politicians, Lawyers and Policemen who attended orgies held in a Belgian chateau and organised by Michel Nihoul, one of Dutroux's alleged accomplices.

The Wikipedia Article on Marc Dutroux

(Providing an alternate reading of the story of the Dutroux Affair, there is the account Beyond the Dutroux Affair. This is a very distressing and graphic website - be warned and advised.)

Not all of these "Devil wosrshippers" are wacko teenage kids living in their parents basements and listening to heavy metal. Some of these groups are very old. The Yezidis going back at least 1000 years and the Luciferians at least 300 to 400 years. Both are more than semi organized. There are also more recent Luciferian New Age concepts that are more organized. I think thats what these people were.

Thats why I say you can't use Satanism as blanket term. Now your saying that Anton's Church is the only recognized church. What about the the First Church of Satan and the Temple of Set? Both are splinters from the original Church of Satan. Col. Aquino, who I have corresponded with, left over the recognition of a dark force. If I understand correctly Lavey was a pure Atheist and would not recognize any kind of Dark Power. So Aquino left and formed his own sect. He has some way out there ideas, is pretty anti semitic, and borderline fascist. He basically told me Jews wern't welcomed by his Temple. Thats really odd when you think about Anton LaVey was originally Anthony Levy. Anyway as far as I know the splinter groups are also legitimate.

Basically what I'm saying is Anton's Church has no more right over the term Satanism than the Catholic Church does over the term Christianity.

An update to the story:

This is from WND, I know its like Fox News on Crack, but its new info.

Another Democrat chief arrested in satanic torture

The North Carolina case of an alleged satanic torture involving a Democratic Party official and her husband has now expanded to include a third suspect, an even higher-ranking Democrat.

Diana Palmer, the first vice-chairwoman of the Durham County Democratic Party, joins her political colleague Joy Johnson, the third vice-chairwoman of the party, and Johnson's spouse, Joseph Craig, in facing charges.

Palmer, 44, surrendered to police in Durham, N.C., this afternoon and was charged with being an accessory after the fact of assault with a deadly weapon. She's being held at the Durham County Jail under $95,000 bail.

Political figures are complete weirdos. Between the one that hoaxed the call that started the whole fiasco in Texas with the polygamist sect to the Judge who had a tape found by his secretary of what sounded like a woman being tortured to death. The Judge got out of his ordeal claiming the tape was a fantasy tape and the hoaxer is going to the Democratic convention as a delegate. Weirdos!

I'm sorry, but please stop passing off your "facts" as "fact"- the majority of people on this planet, have some type of fetish, really, which fetishes are you referring to, foot worship, women standing on gerbils- cease this inanery, most people do not have a "fetish".

Another dictionary definition

"An abnormally obsessive preoccupation or attachment; a fixation. "

BY definition, BY DEFINITION it is not normal

Who are you or I to say what "normal" is?

So language and definition is meaningless now. This manipulation of the language is a particularly nasty weapon used by people of a certain leaning.

The conscious inversion of the what words mean was predicted by George Orwell in his classic dystopian novel 1984. The Ministry of Truth existed to dissemble. The Ministry of Love tortured the innocent. The Ministry of Peace insured war. The Ministry of Plenty manufactured poverty. All these contortions are gloried in the infamous and public proclamation: "War is Peace", "Ignorance is Strength" and "Freedom is Slavery."

You would do well under a Stalin character sir

Marrying girls that hadn't reached puberty yet was normal in my country about a hundred to two hundred years ago.

yes, it clearly isn't normal now is it- are you saying we don't have these discussions in case someone has access to a time machine?

Presumably, in your world of double meaning, slavery is not bad or good, because it happened in the west several hundred years ago, and still goes on in parts of the world today- presumably racism is not up for discussion either.

Something being normal doesn't make it right or wrong.

I actually already said this

A society at the given time decides what normal means.

Ill bear that in mind if I ever debate with someone in a time machine

All I know is that I tolerate and accept others for who they are long as they aren't hurting anyone else. That is a hell of a lot more "Christ" like than judging people. Meh.

Yes, because I am not tolerating others am I- judgement and tolerance are two difference things, or purveyor of double meanings

It is a statement of fact, it isn't normal, because most people do not do it, ie it is not the norm, don't see why people get so hang up on the correct usage of this term

What fact are you talking about? If you want to talk about normal MOST people have a type of fetish. Therefore fetishes are automaticly normal? Normal is a word that does not belong in a discussion because everyone regards it differently and what is normal for one nation will become un-normal years from now, and what is un-normal will become normal, as it has before. THAT was my point.

ok, well run along to the hood and tell African Americans that slavery is neither bad nor good, normal or not normal

Good luck with that, and good luck with accessing a time machine

There is a story unfolding right now involving sexual molestation and murder of children. Are there organized satanists involved? I don't know. There is no allegation of satanism in this story, but it does have the fingerprints of the devil all over it.

Uncle to Be Charged With Kidnapping in Death of Vermont Girl

The uncle of a young Vermont girl found dead will face federal kidnapping charges in the case, federal prosecutors said Thursday, as mourners called for justice a day after her body was found.

The discovery of Brooke's body comes as investigators look into allegations that the girl was to be initiated into a sex ring allegedly led by her relative.


A previous article gives more insight into what was allegedly going on.

Missing Vermont Girl's Stepfather Arrested on Federal Child Molestation Charges

The arrest is related to charges against Brooke's uncle, Michael Jacques, who was charged on Monday with sexually assaulting a young girl over a five-year period. The girl told police she had been enrolled in what police called a program for sex.

According to court papers, she told police that Jacques was to be her trainer in a "program for sex" and that she had met three men affiliated with the program.

Girls in the program were warned that "the first (girl) who does it lives and the second gets her throat cut," according to an affidavit filed Monday at Vermont District Court for Orange County.


Do as thou wilt, huh? Is this the end result? Followed by eternal damnation? Is that any way to live?

Well, despite how wrong everyone seems to think I am I still have yet to see anything at all that would deem these people as Satanic in any sense at all. I've read the OP article and looked through the site, read the bios and checked out the products. I've seen nothing at all to link these people to any type of dark occultist beliefs or practices.

Where exactly did the accusation of "Satanic Rituals" come from?

Let's not forget that many Christian groups will label anything New Age or even slightly Occult as "Satanic" and "Evil"

Also, there's been no allegations of drug use at all, were they really followers of Crowley and his idea of "Do as thou wilt..." I think they would most definitely have been using narcotics.

Edit: This is the only part of the whole thing that relates them to "Satanic Rituals":

"Part of the allegations are that satanic worship is part of this case," McCullough said.

but that is followed with:

After following the Duke lacrosse case and seeing the phony gang-rape charges dismantled and dismissed, Collins said he would reserve judgment until the facts of this case were revealed.

The horrible reality is that there are plenty of these wackos out there and theyre organized. They look and act like normal people. They are teachers, lawyers, judges, and pretty much any other mundane job you can imagine. You never know if behind closed how screwed up your co workers, your professor, your doctor, your minister, your priest, or even your own family members are. It is really freaking scary.

This is from the WorldNetDaily article:

According to broadcast and published reports, that couple was reportedly caged to learn more about satanic practices, but did not consent to physical abuse.

Apparently at least some of the caged victims were willing victims up until the point they were beaten. This gets weirder and weirder and less believable by the minute.

Can any of you tell me about any ritual where someone would voluntarily be caged up in a basement? I fail to see that as ritualistic at all, just weird.
