A mixture of fascinating chapters on the satanic panic and some much more banal chapters on more abstract parts of non-satanic ritual abuse satanism. Chapters 1-9, which focus most prominently on the satanic panic were by far the most interesting and gets five stars. Chapter 9, "Satanism and Psychotherapy" was the most interesting discussion of the intersection between satanic ritual abuse, hypnosis and psychotherapeutic techniques. The remainder of the book was much more focused on specific topics that did not have such a big impact on the panic, and only gets three stars - still informative but much more affected by the passage of time.

WOW, THIS IS JUST AMAZING.
WHAT DOES SATANISM HAVE TO DO WITH RITUAL? RITUAL, THAT'S CHRISTIAN STUFF ISN'T IT?
SO SATANISTS ABDUCT CHILDREN FOR SEX? HMMM. AGAIN, SOUNDS LIKE CERTIN CATHOLIC PRIESTS IN THE NEWS LALELY (NOT ALL PRIESTS OF COURSE).
WHAT DOES THE DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS GAME HAVE TO DO WITH ACTUAL MODERN SATANISM? NOTHING.
SADLY, SOME PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD ARE INSANE AND CLAIM SATAN TOLD THEM TO DO THINGS. OR, THEY SAY THAT THEY WORSHIP THE DEVIL. THERE IS NO DEVIL. THAT CONCEPT IS A RELIGIOUS CREATION.
AREN'T THERE ALSO MANY POOR, INSANE INDIVIDUALS WHO CLAIM TO BE JESUS CHRIST TOO? SURE THERE ARE.
LOOK AT YOUR HISTORY BOOKS. THE CRUSADES, THE SPANISH INQUISITION THE SALEM WITCH HUNTS...THESE ARE EXAMPLES RELIGIOUS MURDER SPREES. NO REAL SATANIST WANTS ANY PART OF SUCH PRACTICES.
TO A MODERN SATANIST, SATAN IS A SYMBOL ONLY; A CONCEPT.
BELIVE WHAT YOU WILL. WE WON'T KILL YOU IF IT ISN'T WHAT WE BELIEVE (UNLIKE SOME PEOPLE).
NOW, DON'T BE AFRAID.
AND STOP YOUR FOOLISHNESS.
