    A man who said he worshipped Satan and enjoyed killing three people, stabbing and beating them and stomping on them with steel-toed boots, was executed Tuesday. Darrell Ferguson, 28, the youngest person put to death in Ohio since 1962, died by injection at 10:21 a.m. at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility. He had asked for the death penalty and chose not to pursue appeals, which could have delayed his execution for years. Ferguson was the second inmate executed using the state's new lethal injection protocol, adopted after an execution in May was delayed while prison staff struggled to find a...

    America is in peril. Terrorism, illegal immigration, crime, drug abuse, hijackings, racism and the diminishing of our Judeo Christian heretige by government schools, Multi-national corporations, political correctness, and liberal Democrats are taking its toll on this nation.

    All across Norway precautions are being mounted to prevent churches being torched on June 6, 2006 - 06.06.06. The Church Employer and Interest Organization (KA) has decided upon a safety first approach, and warned all responsible for Norwegian churches to be on guard on the day. "We do not wish to contribute to increased attention on this matter, but to signal a potential risk," KA division leader Øystein Dahle told newspaper Vårt Land. Dahle said he would have preferred to ignore the date, but must recognize that certain circles are fascinated by the date, and the association with the number...

    Finnish Eurovision winners Lordi have been defended against claims of Satanism by their country's ambassador to the UK. "This is entertainment," Jaakko Laajava told BBC Radio 4's Today programme. "Let's not take this too seriously." "They have produced an album called The Devil Is A Loser and maybe that tells a little bit about this," he continued. The mask-wearing hard rock band have been accused of promoting Satanism by some conservative Greek organisations.

    BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) -- Almost half of a $273,000 grant awarded in 2002 to fight the Goth culture in Blue Springs has been returned because of a lack of interest -- and the absence of a real problem. Blue Springs received the grant two years ago from the Youth Outreach Unit, money the city and U.S. Rep. Sam Graves trumpeted proudly as a way to fight a perceived Goth problem. But $132,000 of the grant was returned because officials never found much of a problem with the Goth culture, which some students called a fad that most people eventually...

    Week after week, federal agents pored over hundreds of leads in the Alabama church arson investigation, but again and again they led to dead ends. A month went by, and no arrest seemed imminent. Then in a frenzied few hours agents capped a month of tedious police work Wednesday when they arrested a pair of campus actors and a third college student in the string of nine church arsons that spread fear through rural Alabama.

    This is just so hard to believe," said the state fire marshal, Richard W. Montgomery, after Alabama authorities caught the arsonists who burned nine churches. "My profile on these suspects is shot all to heck and back." The church burners were three bright college students from good families: Benjamin N. Moseley, Russell L. DeBusk Jr. (both 19, from the Methodist-related Birmingham-Southern College), and Matthew Lee Cloyd (age 20, from the University of Alabama, Birmingham). Mr. Moseley and Mr. DeBusk were theater majors, active in campus productions. They got roles in a movie and were making a film themselves. On the...

    One of Britain's highest-profile jails is at "full stretch" to deal with the number of Muslim inmates facing terrorism charges, the Chief Inspector of Prisons has warned. Anne Owers raised fears about the treatment of Muslim prisoners at Belmarsh maximum security jail in London - including the men accused of the July 21 attempted bombings. She said prison officers did not understand Muslim inmates' social and religious behaviour. The chief inspector said: "The prison's high security and special security units were at full stretch, holding among others those suspected of the failed suicide bomb attempts of July." About 100 of...

    The Marquis de Sade: The Left’s Man of Diverse ‘Sexual Orientations’ Sunday, March 05, 2006 America is undergoing an extreme makeover and the wrecking crews are Leftists. They believe that everything about our civilization is an illusion—including our created condition as either man or woman. In other words, because they do not believe that God exists or the Bible is true, our civilization and condition are merely social constructs. To the wreckers we are but plastic figures that can be melted down and remolded. The wrecking crews conceal their insane ambitions behind deceptive code words such as diversity, multiculturalism, sensitivity,...

    BUSTO ARSIZIO, Italy (Reuters) - Five Satanic cult members received heavy prison sentences on Tuesday for killing the singer of their amateur rock band and two other women in brutal ritual murders that shocked Italy. Nicola Sapone, one of the leaders of the "Beasts of Satan" rock band, was sentenced to life behind bars for the double homicide in 1998 of singer Fabio Tollis and his girlfriend Chiara Marino. The group had apparently believed that Marino, who was stabbed to death under a full moon, was the personification of the Virgin Mary. She was 19. Tollis, 16, took a fatal...

It consists of six articles dealing with various aspects (phenomenological, anthropological, psychological, legal, doctrinal and pastoral) of the growing and disturbing phenomenon of practices connected with the cult of satanic sects. The essays have been prepared in collaboration with the Bologna-based Organization for Research and Information on Sects, while adoctrinal reflection has been written by Bishop Angelo Scola through the good offices of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. What follows is EWTN's summary of each article. I...

On the ground, in the victim's blood, is written the word "Satun" (sic).

    The last time Don Glossop saw his customers they were ritually burning green candles, hoping voodoo would pierce the federal bureaucracy and hasten the arrival of desperately needed relief checks. Glossop's shop, New Orleans Mistic, has been closed since Hurricane Katrina swamped the city two months ago, and most of his clients, who practice a local variant of voodoo, have scattered across the country. He fears that Katrina, which laid waste to entire neighborhoods and claimed hundreds of lives here, may take another casualty: New Orleans' status as the country's voodoo capital. "As of today I would say it's pretty...

    VIENNA, Austria (AP) -- It's almost Halloween - and all those ghosts, goblins, tricks and treats are giving Hans Kohler the creeps. So the mayor of Rankweil, a town near the border with Switzerland, has launched a one-man campaign disparaging Halloween as a "bad American habit" and urging families to skip it this year. "It's an American custom that's got nothing to do with our culture," Kohler wrote in letters sent out to households. By midweek, the mayors of eight neighboring villages had thrown their support behind the boycott. So had local police, annoyed with the annual Oct. 31 uptick...

    An Episcopal group has a doomsday plan that calls for ousting conservative bishops and seizing church property if they attempt to break from the denomination over its increasingly liberal position on homosexuality. The so-called "Day After" plan could kick in as early as June, when the Episcopal Church USA holds its General Convention in Columbus, Ohio, according to minutes from a closed steering committee meeting of the group Via Media. Joan Gunderson of Aspinwall, who served as recording secretary for committee meeting in late September, said nothing from the strategy session has been approved by the group's leadership. "The minutes...
