Indians deported from Zambia
World Bulletin reports that, “Zambia has deported two Indians who were found performing a ritual at a burial site in capital Lusaka.”
Edger Lungu, Home Affairs Minister, stated:
"My ministry received a report from police that they had arrested and charged two Indian nationals for trespassing at the burial site [‘the Old Leopard's Hill Cemetery’]."
George Maanza, who encountered the ritual participants, stated:
"When we got there, we saw people standing at the grave…At first we thought they were mourners who had just finished burying a loved one, but when we got nearer we discovered they weren't mourners."
No satanism to see here
The article No, This Woman Was Not Performing Satanic Rituals and Sexually Abusing Preschoolers provides a great example of “satanic panic” panic. The greatest trick that satanists ever pulled is to get people to believe that there is no such thing as satanic crime.
The article is in reference to an Austin American-Statesman report about Fran Keller:
“a Texas woman who, in 1992, was convicted along with her husband of sexually abusing several children. Keller was freed on Tuesday; her husband will probably be freed sometime next week. Both have served 21 years after being convicted of crimes that almost certainly never happened.”
That case and its merits are one issue, what we are focused on is the manner in which the issue was treated by the referenced article which notes:
“The charges against them, which centered on the allegation that they were performing Satanic rituals, were so outlandish that they ought to have been questioned from the start.”
Lesson learned; if you want to get away with it, nowadays, just do outlandish things so that when your victims report it they will be looked down upon as nutters.
The article continues:
“Though it seems ridiculous today, in the 1980s and early 1990s, many Americans were convinced that Satanic rituals presented an immediate threat to the nation’s children. Religious zealots…insisted that Satanists had hatched a worldwide conspiracy targeting innocent children, often in preschools and day-care centers, and a credulous nation listened…”
Of course, this overlooks satanic crime as, for instance, as outlined in William Ramsey’s book ABOMINATION - Devil Worship and Deception in the West Memphis Three Murders (which we reviewed here) wherein he not only reviews the WM3 case but Richard Ramirez, Richard Kasso, Robin Gecht, Edward Spreitzer, Andrew Kokoraleis, Thomas Kokoraleis, James Ryan Bunnell, Jacob Delashmutt, Jospeh Fiorella, Royce Casey, Carl Drew, Robin Murphy, Alexander Voronovic, Andrea Volpe, Nicola Sapone, Mario Maccione, Pietro Pacciani, Roderick Ferrell, Heather Wendorf, Dana Cooper, Charity Keesee, Howard Scott Anderson, Jim Hardy, Pete Roland, Ron Clements, Adolfo Jesus Costanzo, Sara Villareal Aldrete, Daniel and Manuela Ruda, Jack Abbott and Jack Unterwager to name a few.
The American-Statesman notes:
“The children also accused the Kellers of forcing them to watch or participate in the killing and dismemberment of cats, dogs and a crying baby. Bodies were unearthed in cemeteries and new holes dug to hide freshly killed animals and, once, an adult passer-by who was shot and dismembered with a chain saw. The children recalled several plane trips, including one to Mexico, where they were sexually abused by soldiers before returning to Austin in time to meet their parents at the day care.”
This ignores real cases such as the Presidio day care scandal, the Boys Town scandal in which Lawrence E. King Jr. was involved, etc.
It is also noted:
“The only physical evidence of abuse in the case has been discredited; the doctor who originally testified that he found tears in one 3-year-old girl’s hymen that were ‘consistent with sexual abuse’ now believes that hers was a normal pediatric hymen.”
Well, one thing is certain; two people did not serve 21 years because of tears in one girl’s hymen.
In his appeal, the Kellers’ attorney wrote:
“A 21st century court ought to be able to recognize a 20th century witch-hunt and render justice accordingly.”
So, there you have it, a ready defense; just say “satanic panic” and more on. Granted, the Kellers may have been 100% innocent which would make their 21 years incarcerated utter travesty. Then again, let us not discount bizarre stories of satanic crime as a politically correct reaction.
