Satan’s Toy Box

Turmoil in a ToyboxThis crazy video features an insane look back on the toys and cartoons of the 1980’s by a couple of confused evangelical Christians who see the Devil in every detail. Author Phil Phillips and Pastor Gary Greenwald would be just a couple of bumbling buffoons if their brand of humorless hysteria hadn’t been part of a bigger trend that lead to the “Satanic Panic” of that era — a time when hundreds of unsubstantiated cases of so-called Satanic ritual abuse were reported around the United States.

The good people at i09 published a short version of this video. Here are some of their favorite bits:

• Dungeons & Dragons “game pieces” scream when you set them on fire!

• “It’s called necromology.”

• Darth looks “almost exactly” like the Norse god Odin

• Smurfs are blue with black lips… just like corpses.

• “There’s a form of witchcraft [in Star Wars] called ‘Obi witchcraft.'” Obi obi obi!… Read the rest

Talking Heavy Metal with Sam Dunn of Banger Films

DunnAlong with Scot McFadyen, Sam Dunn runs Banger Films. Over the past seven years they have created Global Metal, Iron Maiden: Flight 666, Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage, Metal Evolution, and Rush: Time Machine 2011: Live in Cleveland. Dunn also has a documentary in production aptly titled, Satan. Sam is a Canadian and a musician as well as a film director. He has interviewed some of the biggest names in hard rock and heavy metal, including Bruce Dickinson, Geddy Lee, and the late Ronnie James Dio.

The widely-successful series that aired on VH1 Classic, Metal Evolution, chronicled the history of heavy metal through the decades but did not include the most recent strand, extreme metal. With an IndieGoGo campaign running through October 8th, Dunn hopes to raise enough money to finish the episode on his own. Sam is an intelligent, articulate, metalhead and I enjoyed talking to him about the moms of Slayer, Norwegian church burnings, and Satan.… Read the rest

It Turns Out Satan Is Pro-Life

2802da9bbca77c969204b1da4725ab8bTim Stanley writes in the Telegraph:

Earlier this week, I wrote about pro-abortion activists chanting “Hail Satan!” in an effort to drown out a chorus of Amazing Grace at a rally in Texas. Tongue-in-cheek, I wrote, “I’m guessing that even the Horned One would regard association with the US abortion industry as bad PR.” I meant it as a joke but, er, it turns out I was right.

A writer at the WND website spotted that the UK Church of Satan Tweeted this after the story broke:

Unfortunate to see Satan’s name used in such a diabolical manner. Another example of what ‘Satanism’ doesn’t represent. #HailSatan

— UK Church of Satan (@UKChurchofSatan) July 3, 2013

Yep, it turns out that the UK Church of Satan is prolife. They later Tweeted, “Why wouldn’t Satanism be pro-life? What else is there? We are all free to make choices. Agreeable or not.

Documentary: The History of the Devil

via Top Documentary Films

The History of the Devil is wickedly good, informative and concise. A no-frills Welsh film produced in association with SBS Australia and distributed by Siren Visual, it’s roughly 52 minutes in length and packs a fair dinkum amount of history into its slender running time.

The documentary itself is made up entirely of mostly still images alternating sporadically with talking heads; religious scholars, theologians and reverends.

Directed by Greg Moodie and written and produced by Dave Flitton, it was researched by Eibhleann Ni Ghriofa, Deirdre Learmont and Craig McGregor.

It’s an impressive andvery open-minded account and offers some fantastic insight into the evolution; the hows and whys the specter of the Devil has existed and morphed through the ages from the dawn of civilization through to the new millennium.

So despite its relatively low-fi approach, the richness and diversity of its imagery; the historical plaques, plates, engravings, illustrations, paintings, drawings, and the occasional staged re-enactment (some dude dressed up in rather bemusing demonic attire), keeps the documentary at a high level of beguilement.

Bob Larson Interviews Nikolas and Zeena Schreck

I am amazed that this happened, and even more amazed that Bob Larson refrained from attempting to exorcise the demons out of them.

The History Channel’s Obama-Doppelganger Satan

Pondering what Barack Obama would look like if he actually were the Antichrist returned, as believed by some segments of the Christian right? The History Channel has a new ten-hour series telling the story of the Bible, and viewers, including Herman Cain and Glenn Beck, have noticed that the devil bears a strange resemblance to the U.S. president.

Why Do So Many Christians Think Satan is Such a Pussy?

Your consciousness is always going to be a reflection your own informational intake, and it was probably reading pieces on Disinfo last week regarding shit like the practical applications of witch hunts, satanic child sex abuse conspiracies, and listening to Gabriel D. Roberts talk about his uber demento-Christian upbringing that got me thinking about a topic I’ve been meaning to write about for quite some time now. Namely, why do so many Christians, who spend a large portion of their lives supposedly battling Satan, seem to think he’s the biggest panty-waste imaginable?

One of the most absolutely unexpected things that happened after I started my occult practice seven years ago was that I ended up running head on into themes that echo throughout the core tenets of all the world’s major religions. This is all stuff I’d completely written off as ridiculous in my more rebellious youth. I rejected Christianity at age sixteen because, well, there are just too many holes in the logical infrastructure there to stand up to much of my youthful critical thinking.… Read the rest

The Care and Maintenance of ‘Satan’

I used to have a terrible snake phobia. It took about a year of concentrated effort to rid myself of it. These days, I'm not afraid of snakes at all, with the exception of one particular snake known as "Satan". Satan is sixteen feet of very ill-tempered Burmese python that has become the unlikely mascot of YouTube program Snake Bytes TV. Check out Satan's care regimen for a taste of what the guys have to deal with on a regular basis.

WND Asks if Satan Made Adam Lanza Kill

Never mind the complexities of gun control and the failures of our society’s mental health safety net, World Net Daily’s Aaron Klein wants us to focus on the real issue here: Satan worship. Klein, who apparently just arrived in our timeline from the year 1985 (or 1895, maybe), asks if Satan worship was the force behind not only the Sandy Hook killings, but also the Aurora Theater shootings, Columbine and the Manson killings. It’s easy for some people to blame “the devil” when terrible things happen, but the same God-fearing folks rarely ask where God was when Satan was engineering the slaughter of dozens of innocent people.

Via World Net Daily:

Was Lanza part of a larger Satanic or ritualistic subculture locally or online in which he could have revealed his plans or could have even received support in preparing for the killings?

Although largely underreported, Satanic subculture and so-called devil worship has been a factor in numerous other mass killings, including the recent Batman shooting massacre.
