The Knights Templar were disbanded by the Vatican for performing secret heretical initiation rituals that involved the spinning of a top marked with different colors.

The temple of initiation involved a room with a floor full of differently colored gems.
The postulant had to then move one hand or foot onto a gem of the color indicated upon the top. There were several postulants at a time.

If one lost their footing and fell while trying to reach a gem, he was anally raped and sacrificed to the idol, Baphomet.

You may know Dexys Midnight Runners for that one song they did in the 80s, "Come on Eileen", but their frontman Kevin Rowland ended up being a key factor in the end of the Cold War.

He dressed up in drag and seduced Nikita Krushchev in exchange for peace-making with Ronald Reagan. There was a video floating around on the Internet years ago, but it has since been taken down and is now only in the hands of the Russian police for.... "evidence".
