Yesr -“The closest thing I can find to your story is the death of Jeanette DePalma who was from New Jersey not New York”
Because you can’t find it, doesn’t mean I’m wrong!
I said NY.
Nowadays reality shows are popular.November 2, 2021 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm #2023757
@Health You’re right, just because I can’t find it doesn’t mean you’re wrong.
However, you own admission of ignorance coupled with the vague statements you are calling “facts” does. So you’re wrong.November 2, 2021 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #2023793
Yesr -“However, you own admission of ignorance coupled with the vague statements you are calling “facts” does. So you’re wrong.”
My admission of ignorance was only on this:
“referred to as the “satan scare”, whereby “survivors” of purported satanic human slaughter cults would recount their traumatic experiences, having supposedly witnessed suburban well-off families engage in ritual human sacrifice.”
I never heard anybody claim Something that is called “satan scare”, where they witnessed “suburban well-off families engage in ritual human sacrifice.”
I never heard of this.
But it’s common practice for Youth in Rural America to practice Satan Worship.
Like I said before they don’t usually kill anyone, but I found a case where they did!November 3, 2021 11:22 am at 11:22 am #2024431
@Health No you didn’t find a case where they did. You didn’t even name the city or time period where it happened. You just gave some vague statement.
And the popularity of what people call “Satanic Worship” is usually LeVay Satanism which is basically Atheists making fun of religion and using America’s freedom of religion to do so. Like putting a giant evil statue next to an image of the Luchois at a state capital. They don’t actually believe what they preach.November 3, 2021 3:39 pm at 3:39 pm #2024583Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant

Rosh Hashona yesterday says it is OK to put a statue of a king near a shul – as nobody will suspect the community of AZ, but don’t try it at home!November 4, 2021 12:56 am at 12:56 am #2024675
Yesr -“They don’t actually believe what they preach”
Yes they do.
“No you didn’t find a case where they did. You didn’t even name the city or time period where it happened. You just gave some vague statement, etc.”
You sound like that there is No such thing.
But the reality is – there is.
People who deny things have Motives – What’s yours?!?
“America’s Most Wanted: The “Satan worshipers” who allegedly killed Kimberly Simon
March 10, 2010
I’ve been working on a Statement against violent crime and vandalism for the Church of Azazel. We absolutely need to finish writing this statement now, because, on Saturday, March 13, America’s Most Wanted will air a show about an old cold case of a murder committed back in 1985, for which the currently suspected perpetrators are a local group of “Satan worshipers.”
Previously another person, Steven Barnes, had been convicted of murdering Kimberly Simon, a 16-year-old who had been attending Whitesboro High School in Oneida County, New York, back in 1985. Last year, Steven Barnes was exonerated after having spent more than twenty years in prison. So the investigation has been reopened.
Suspicion now falls on a group of “Satan worshipers” who had been interviewed by the original investigators and who were not charged with the crime back then.
Here are some relevant news stories:
Satan worshipers possible suspects in Simon slaying by Rocco LaDuca, Utica (New York) Observer-Dispatch, March 9, 2010
Cold case gains national attention, News 10 Now, Central New York, March 9. 2010
America’s Most Wanted to air Kimberly Simon case on March 13, WKTV, Utica, New York, March 8, 2010
One thing strikes me as very odd here: 1985 was at the height of the “Satanic Ritual Abuse” scare, with Christian fundamentalist cops galore running around giving seminars on “Satanic cults.” Little or no serious debunking had been done yet. Back then, hardly anyone questioned the idea that if there were “Satan worshipers” afoot, they were most likely guilty of all manner of mayhem, killing thousands of people every year. That being the case, if indeed there was any valid reason to suspect these “Satan worshipers” of the 1985 murder of Kimberly Simon, why wasn’t this angle thoroughly investigated back then, of all times?”
You sound like the last line.
Maybe they were protecting the Kid Worshipers?!?November 4, 2021 11:08 am at 11:08 am #2024802
@Health Well, I googled the case you’re talking about. The only people who are claiming it’s Satanists is some weird paganist blog. All the more mainstream (and fringe) news sources simply list it as an unsolved mystery. The links to the (10 year old) allegations aren’t even working anymore.
Yes, I sound like that last line. Probably because it’s true.
Satan worship isn’t a huge thing in the US. Those that are Satanists are mostly just pagan idolators and not death worshipping murderers.November 4, 2021 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #2024949
Yesr -“Those that are Satanists are mostly just pagan idolators and not death worshipping murderers”
I already posted that most of the Satanic Worshippers do not kill.
But there are a few that do.
I posted one case because you denied it entirely!
“The only people who are claiming it’s Satanists is some weird paganist blog.”
How many SN’s do you have?!?
“America’s Most Wanted: The “Satan worshipers” who allegedly killed Kimberly Simon”
This Show is Not “some weird paganist blog”.
They basically proved it.
It looks like some Authorities “were protecting the Kid Worshipers”, and maybe they still are?!?
