BTW, I couldn't help but notice your comment about the Satanists. Did you ever talk to your sister or any of them yourself to try and get a
full grasp on why Satan was so real for them? Have you ever done any research on the spiritual realm?
I've spoken with the leader's younger sister many, many times. He was a great kid, smart, athletic, popular, good looking. His parents have money.
Everything came easy for him, and he still wanted more. They started dabbling with the occult. Killed some family pets, his friends got involved.
