I just can’t let this drop. At The Wild Hunt they linked to a 3 part story at Slate magazine called The Real Victims of Satanic Ritual Abuse – The dangers were imagery but the consequences were not. I just cannot friggin believe the bizarre things these accused, tried and  jailed supposed perps were said to have done, all based on the word of very young children coaxed on by their Christian psychologists and prosecutors. It is more bizarre than almost any horror movie plot and i cannot believe people used to believe such garbage. And now finally the last of them are being cleared and released leaving a lot of egg on the faces of their accusers. Pictures from various sources.

  1. There have been cases like this in the UK – the Orkney’s in particular where social workers went in and ripped appart families for supposed Satanic abuse. Apparently the social workers were using controversial imported American techniques to inverview the children (so maybe there is an indirect link with the case above..)

    • I guess we Americans had to teach the Brits how to be witch hunters once again. I just can’t believe the bizarre things those 3-4 year old said were taken seriously by prosecutors, judges and juries. Those who were jailed are now scarred for life, as are i am sure the children now grown up.
