[Public] Black Mass Planned for Oklahoma City
Aleteia ^ | 7/1/14 | John Burger

Posted on 07/03/2014 5:53:17 AM PDT by marshmallow

Archbishop Coakley calls on organizers to change plans.

For the second time this year, a public “Black Mass” is being planned—this time in Oklahoma City.

According to the Oklahoma City Civic Center website, the event is planned for Sept. 21. Tickets go on sale Wednesday.

The website announces: "The Black Mass has been a feared ritual, and now it's being brought into the light! This will be not only enlightening but educational as well. This Black Mass will [be] conducted for the public to attend with certain adaptations to allow for a legal celebration."

That includes clothing the "female altar," which is normally nude, Adam Daniels, head of Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, the satanic church in Oklahoma City behind the event, explained in an interview today.

"We’re trying to bring about tolerance for our religious freedom for the satanic religon," Daniels said. "We have a legally-filed church...and bringing out the black mass as one of the rituals of satanism to educate the public."

In a follow-up by email, Daniels said the event for September is meant as "a defiant act to show the Catholics that Satanism will stand up and fight for our religious rights."

He declined to say how many people belong to the church but said that it has previously organized public demonstrations of a "satanic exorcism" and a ritural called "The Apostasy of Jesus Christ."

Oklahoma City Archbishop Paul Coakley today called on community leaders to reconsider whether it is an appropriate use of public space.

If people think this only affects and/or hurts Catholics, they are far wrong.

It's a fantastic opportunity to surround those worshippers with prayer warriors.

Father forgive them for they know not what they do.

They may be educated, well read, able to converse and debate ... but they know not what they do.

This is the flip side of the First Amendment. We should not be hypocritical; either we believe in religious freedom or we do not. Assuming that these satanists are not doing anything otherwise illegal, and the article implies that they are cleaning up their act to make it legal, there is no reason why they should not be allowed to do what they are doing. That certainly doesn’t mean we have to like or support it, but they have the right to do it.

It pains me that we have gone in this country from “I don’t agree with what you say but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it,” to “Shut up, you are offending me.” The left is far more guilty of this than we are, but we are not totally immune.

Actually, I think these guys know very well what they are doing (sadly). O Lord destroy the wicked and cleanse the earth!

May God grant these deranged souls the grace of Repentance and Conversion.

If they get in the next life what they currently think they want in this life ... they're going to be frightfully surprised and disappointed.

Obviously they have a strong desire for attention; probably to replace the love or the type of love they needed but didn’t receivd as children. The more we react with hatred and attention the more they will up the ante. Pay them no attention.

I think you make a decent point about attention. We live in a nation of attention-freaks. Me, me, me! Look at me!

Do you know what day September 21st is, to some folks?

It’s the Autumnal Equinox.

It’s ‘the second harvest’, or Mabon, meaning that the first, occuring on August 1st, called Lughnassad or Lamms (Loafmass), is the harvesting of grain (John Barleycorn song time). The 2nd harvest is when the REST of the vegetables were harvested.

For those that may ask, the Last Harvest, before the onset of winter, was the harvesting of livestock and poultry, which occured around ... (anybody?) .. October 31st.

To have a ‘black mass’ on an equinox, is supposed to be of special meaning, I’ve been told. This ‘sort of event’ is something I do not participate.

(Dear Marshmellow, they are stolen consecrated ones.)

At Harvard, priests took the Blessed Sacrament and processed around the proposed black mass site, with the Faithful praying and singing. That black mass never happened.

It can and should be done again.

A “feared” ritual? Hardly. Children of God know they don’t have to fear the devil. (Waiting for the new label “Satanphobic”...)

As a non-Catholic Christian, I HATE the black Mass, just as I hate anything that mocks my Lord. But you fools go ahead and do as you will. You’ll reap what you sow, and then some.

“The Knights of Columbus. The sword is ceremonial. The Glock is real.”

Do you mean that the KofC will protect the Catholic Church from those who seek to destroy it? Can you elaborate?

It’s just pure hatred for the Catholic church. You can bet your last dollar that democrats will support this bunch and refuse to prosecute them.
But if a Catholic looks at them wrong, he will be arrested for a hate crime.

The late George Carlin joked that being human means you have tickets to the freak show; being American means you have front row seats.

Considering that Carlin used all of his great talents to promote the kind of country we have today, I tend not to listen to him about cultural America except when he’s talking about stuff.

Oh, I can remember him on the Mike Douglas Show (that’s gotta come out on dvd) talking about free sex ‘cause we gotta “make love, not war!”

No doubt, though, he was a very great talent.

The civic center rents to an anti-Catholic hate group?

Who the hell approved that?

This isn’t a “pro-religious freedom” meeting. This is an anti-religion (anti-Catholic) hate rally.

Carlin was a great talent and through his humor, often proved he had terrific insight into the human condition--I would like to think due to an excellent Catholic education--but the balance of his work leaves me thinking he made a conscious decision to war against the Author of truth . . . to his eternal loss.

I pray I'm wrong.

Oh, you’re right. Yeah, some nun hit him in 3rd grade so he had to war against the country.

Happily, I’ve heard that he was a very nice and generous man in reality - I always liked hearing that. Comedians are not known for their off-stage humor or kindness.

He added that the event will be held in the Civic Center’s smallest space, which has a maximum capacity of 92.


Many gatherings I have attended had many more attendees than that and it was not even advertised county wide.

This is obviously advertised world wide and they do not even expect to fill the seats?

I believe George Carlin was on the Bob Newhart show, which is the only place I ever saw him.

Just recently I came across one of his shows and turned it off about a minute latter because all I heard was one four letter word after another and in front of a big audience.

He seemed like a bright young man but he sure turned stupid in his old age.

Bunch of staurophobes just being stupid.

Staurophobia is the pathological fear/hatred of the Cross, especially of Him Who it represents.

I learned a new word...I always enjoy that.

And yes, I think you’re right.
