The Role of Sex and Pregnancy in Satanic Cults

Article excerpt

ABSTRACT: The functional role of sex and pregnancy in transgenerational Satanic Cults is described and contrasted with its purpose in "normal" social groups. These observations are based on the reports of former Satanic cult members who are now being treated for some type of dissociative disorder. In "normal" social groups, the primary functions of sex and pregnancy center on perpetuating the gene pool of group members. In Satanic cults, however, the primary function of sex is to form a bond between some type of painful stimulation and physical pleasure. Pregnancy, while also a means of perpetuating the gene pool of cult members, is also viewed as a method for offering new souls to Satan. In "normal" social groups, every effort is made to preserve the life of one's offspring. However, in Satanic cults.a specific selection process determines which babies will live or die. For example, some cult members are designated as "breeders" and their task is to produce children who will be offered as sacrifices in Satanic rituals or for black market trade. Breeders are sadistically abused while pregnant and often it is considered a challenge to see how much torture they can endure without aborting their unborn child. Breeders suffer this abuse because it is a way for them to advance in the cult hierarchy of power. The young children of cult members are forced to play a prominent role in various sadistic sexual and sacrificial rituals at an early age. Afterwards, they are forced to cannibalize the dead sacrifice as part of their initiation into the cult. Until recently, many psychologists and psychiatrists were likely to incorrectly interpret the reports of former cult members as sadistic fantasies. This suggests that the underlying cause of their pathology was unlikely to be addressed in treatment. Now that a number of these reports have been externally corroborated by independent sources, health professionals should give greater credence to the potential reality of these bizarre events. Hopefully, this more open perspective will improve the likelihood that these severely damaged patients will receive appropriate and effective treatment.

The existence of sects using Satanic rituals whose members engage in sadistic sexual orgies, human sacrifice, and cannibalism can be documented as early as the first four centuries A.D. For example, consider the following account from the recently discovered Dead Sea Scrolls which was written by Epiphanius, an Egyptian monk and later bishop, who lived from 315 to 403 A.D.: "I will now come to the place of depth of their deadly story (for they have various false teachings about pleasure). First they have their women in common. And if a stranger appears who is of the same persuasion, they have a sign, men for women and women for men. When they extend the hand for greeting at the bottom of the palm they make a tickling touch and from this they ascertain whether the person who appeared is of their faith. After they have recognized each other, they go over at once to eating. They serve rich food, meat and wine, even if they are poor. When they thus ate together and so to speak filled up their veins to an excess they turn to passion. The man leaving his wife says to his own wife: Stand up and make love with the brother. Then the unfortunates unite with each other. After they have had intercourse in the passion of fornication they raise their own blasphemy toward heaven. The woman and the man take the fluid of the emission of the man into their hands, they stand, turn toward heaven, their hands besmeared with the uncleanness, and pray . . . bringing to the father who is the nature of all that which they have on their hands, and they say: We offer to thee this gift, the body of Christ.' And then they eat it, their own ugliness, and say: This is the body of Christ and this is the Passover for the sake of which our bodies suffer and are forced to confess the suffering of Christ'. . . [Here Epiphanius describes that cult members also do the same with the menstrual blood of women, and they call it the "blood of Christ. …
