...local horse carers believe the butchery was part of an evil occult or Pagan ceremony by Devil worshippers.

The Devil is a Christian deity. Not pagan.

These guys are Satanists, eh?  Where in LeVay's work is this particular ritual?

FTFA: The bodies had been arranged in a Satanic star shape, known as a pentangle, or laid out in a circle with their necks broken.

The evidence is clear. Arrest all Moroccans.

In other news, religion continues to be stupid and gives people all the reasons they need to do stupid things.

A dark Satanic cult has been blamed for the death of a pony which was horrifically mutilated in a ring of fire during a full moon. . . .

That's the worst kind of Satanic cult, you know.

Satanic cults are to blame? Is it 1987 already?

Was that information provided as a warning or a tip?

Anyone reading the story knows it was an alien autopsy.

"It was also surrounded by circular patches of burnt moorland - which experts believe were left by a ring of torches or candles."

Authorities always quick to blame innocent satanists and rock bands when there is no logical explanation.

Satanists really are a thing. Generally speaking, there are three main types: atheists, Satan-as-hero people, and "OMG TEH DARK LORD MAKES ME CUT!" folks.

Yes. Most other religions, too.

I remember when I was a young lad flipping through the channels on summer break. There was a christian station showing a special on how heavy metal has made kids turn to SATAN. It had footage of Metallica shows, AC/DC shows, Megadeath etc. That show is what made me get into the heavier side of Rock.

I'd go with this. If there's one thing we learned from the 80's, it's that Satanic Cults just don't exist, it's just Jack Chick blowing smoke up your donkey.

Not a deity. More like a hollywood boogeyman. Much of what modern christians, and 'satanists', believe is formed more by movies than anything else.

I briefly thought about the satanist aliens behind cattle mutilations in the American southwest, but I doubt they have coyotes in Devonshire.

Its worth noting that its perfectly legal in the US for practitioners of Yoruba, Santeria, and Voudoun to sacrifice animals to the Loa.  Of course, in all fairness, the number of animals we sacrifice to our own lardasses every single day, many of which die really horrific and painful deaths, so far outnumbers any sacrifices made by non-Christian groups that they make them simply insignificant.  I will admit though, that I am pretty damn fuzzy about freedom of religious expression across the pond.  I know England has far more restrictions on freedom of speech then we do, though they are working on it.

No worshipers or superpowers in the bible. Not even a being, really.

Like i was saying, the entirety of the satan/devil mythos was created out of thin air.

Just recalling Cameron's latest foray into limiting sexy free speech.
Clarification - citation requested for the "are working on it" part.

I probably couldn't even say I want to shag the queen bloody over there without getting nabbed.

Now that I think about it, I probably can't even do that he++++++++[TRANSMISSION ABORTED]

only insecure tyrant gods demand sacrifice, satan doesn't demand anything.
 
2013-07-25 11:27:01 AM
Even though it's been pointed out already I feel the need to scream into the void one more time that Pagans  and Paganism have nothing to do with "Satanist" or "Devil Worshipers". People who "Devil Worship" are really just disaffected Christians who have latched on to the polar opposite of the same story. Pagans are far more threatening because they counter the entire narrative. This is why every time something like this happens you have people trying to instantly link it to Pagans and Paganism.

It's legal to sacrifice an animal as long as it's done in a manner consistent with that of a non-sacrifice slaughter. I.e., cut the throat and bleed it, don't gut it while it's alive.

Basically, as long as it's done like a farmer might do for food, it's legal. Anything else, you can go up for animal cruelty.

Well, most religions are based on ancient texts at least. So someone making something up thousands of years ago holds more weight than something just made up now, for some reason.

KISS stands for Kids Into Satan's Service and AC/DC wants your kids to be bisexual.  Study it out.

Not sure if serious as I am still nursing the morning coffee, but.... atheists can't be Satanists? But if one believes the Lucifer character in the Bible maybe wasn't so bad, does that make one a Satanist?

I get you, but in the Bible or not, it exists as a religious reality today. Many Christians of various sects believe in the reality of a being they refer to as "Satan" or "the Devil."

There are a lot of atheistic Satanists. They see Satan as a symbol of humanity's true or best nature rather than a literal deity.
