Abuse" and Occult Crime (OCRT excerpts)
This is fair and accurate information concerning
religions and child/sex abuse. This is from the Ontario Consultants on Religious
Tolerance (OCRT). You will find a selection of text excerpted from the OCRT website
www.religioustolerance.org/sra.htm an amazing webwork of files and html documents which do religious folks a service
while disemboweling the 'satanic ritual abuse' and 'recovered memory syndrome' scams
rather directly. You will also find excellent support by government reports and
well-researched religious files. This is what they had to say about 'satanic ritual abuse'
and 'occult crime'.
OCRT on SRA
"The Church of Satan, Temple of Set and other
Satanic religious groups are active and probably include many thousands of members in
North America. This number is speculative, because the largest group does not reveal its
membership statistics, and the remaining groups are relatively small. There has been one
allegation of abuse against a member of the Temple of Set by an ex-girlfriend, but no
"One case of intra-familial incest involving an
underage teen-age male may have occurred. It was reported in the large Federal government
study referred to above. The teen-ager's parents were Satanists and publicly acknowledged
their religion. They apparently invited him to some of their sexual rituals as victim,
observer and perpetrator. None of the horrendous details that the public associates with
SRA (ritual killing, torture and mutilation, blood drinking, etc) occurred. It involved
only sexual activity. If the allegations are true, then the parents would have committed
incest with an under-aged person - a criminal act of child abuse. Since it happened during
a Satanic ritual, it would be regarded by many as Satanic Ritual Abuse.
"To our knowledge, no criminal charges have been
laid or convictions obtained against any religious Satanist. Again, as a working
hypothesis, we conclude that religious Satanists are not abusing or sacrificing people.
These were the ONLY INSTANCES where the social culture
called 'Satanism' and ritual abuse intersected. In all other cases there was either not
enough evidence to warrant further investigation or the individuals could not be shown to
be connected to any strand of Satanism.
other OCRT excerpts:
"The US government tried to obtain reliable
information by funding a massive study of childhood ritual abuse. They obtained data from
over 10,000 psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, as well as from police offices,
district attorneys' offices and social service departments. They found:
An alarming incidence of child ritual and non-ritual abuse
during exorcisms, by withholding medical attention and beating children mostly involving
One case of incest within a family during Satanic rituals;
No unequivocal evidence of:
bizarre and horrible satanic ritual abuse scenarios or of
large scale, organized Satanic cults. "
The US Govt found more ritual abuse from
EXORCISMS and other CHRISTIAN 'family values' than within the purported 'Satanist' world
(usually inclusive of Neopagans).
continuing OCRT excerpts:
"There is no hard evidence of this form of ritual
abuse by organized Satanic, Pagan, or other non-Christian groups. Typical types of hard
evidence would have been human blood at a ritual site, dead bodies, underground tunnels
where children said they were taken (as in the famous McMartin Day Preschool centre in
Why do people believe that Satanic/Sadistic Ritual Abuse
is common? Most people believe that there are very evil people following a very evil
religion, who kill babies, drink their blood, eat their flesh, and who engage in
degenerate sexual practices. This belief system has existed for decades without any hard
evidence. Many reasons have been cited for this belief:
There are many people who believe themselves to be ritual
abuse survivors who deliver seminars and write books which promote the concept.
Some Evangelical Christians and feminist therapists
deliver lectures, conduct seminars and write books promoting it.
The belief system was started by the Roman Empire in the
second century when they were persecuting Christians. It was reused by the Christian
Church against the Witches (Wiccans). It was used by the Nazis against the Jews. It is
being used today against some therapy, religious or spiritual individuals and groups.
Whenever the rumour was active in the past, most ordinary citizens believed it to be true.
They do so today also.
Now that Communism is no longer a menace, we need an
internal "evil empire" to demonize. "
In other words, a MODERN DAY WITCH HUNT,
this time fought by legally-supported Occultists and the bewildered Christian
establishment which is being disillusioned by a nonpartisan judicial system that, even
when predominantly Christian, such as in the Utah study, fails to find the evidence
concluding with OCRT info on 'the Occult' and 'Occult Crime'
"The Occult" is simply a list of mostly
unrelated practices and activities. It does not exist as an organization. Occult Crime
does not exist, any more than Christian or Jewish Crime exists. The exact makeup of the
Occult depends upon your own religious beliefs. There is no general consensus."
There is NO justification for the use of the phrase
'occult crime' and there is no justification for the use of the phrase 'satanic crime' or
indeed 'satanic ritual abuse' by the findings of the US Federal Government and the studies
conducted by several state agencies (CA/UT at least) and the British Government.
finishing off with K. Lanning, for the FBI (in his report's Conclusion):
"There are many children in the United States who,
starting early in their lives, are severely psychologically, physically, and sexually
traumatized by angry, sadistic parents or other adults. Such abuse, however, is not
perpetrated only or primarily by satanists. The statistical odds are that such
abusers are members of mainstream religions. If 99.9% of satanists and 0.1% of
Christians abuse children as part of their spiritual belief system, that still means that
the vast majority of children so abused were abused by Christians."
As the OCRT mentions as regards this figure, given that
the resultant numbers are accurately reflected by today's census figures (99.9% of
Satanists likely amounts to some thousands; .1% of Christians likely amounts to perhaps
100,000), Lanning could even have used .01% and have been entirely accurate. in fact I
would suggest that the evidence actually points the OPPOSITE DIRECTION (i.e. that there is
reason to suspect more ritual abuse associated with Christianity than it statistically
warrants as compared to other, minority religions).
