Satanism: The Acid Test (STAT)

“First they came for the Satanists,
And I didn’t speak out because I was not a Satanist

Then they came for the Goths,
And I didn’t speak out because I was not a Goth

Then they came for the Vampyres,
And I didn’t speak out because I was not a Vampyre

Then they came for the Pagans,
And I didn’t speak out because I was not a Pagan

Then they came for me,
And there was no one left to speak for me.”

– Octarine Valur

This project comprises many hours of work by volunteers dedicated to the protection of constitutionally guaranteed rights to freedom of religion, identity, dignity, and freedom of association in South Africa.

Do you know the TRUTH about Satanism? Do you know what it is, and what it isn’t? Do you know that there are other religions and subcultures that are wrongly accused of being “Satanism?” Do you know that even Satanists are falsely accused of criminality based on defamatory material and fear-mongering? Do you know the facts? Do you know how much of what “occult experts” say on TV, on the radio or in the newspapers is true – and how much is really false, based on ignorance and intended to mislead you into believing in some fantastic world-wide multi-generational conspiracy, making “authoritative statements” without the inconvenience of accuracy or burden of proof? Have you ever wondered? We invite you to find out for yourself – by reading through the detailed academic paper “Satanism: The Acid Test”, investigated and compiled by the Alternative Religions Forum with the active participation of Pagans, Satanists and participants of subcultures and alternative religions and lifestyles often mistakenly accused of being “Satanism”. Know the truth and empower yourself to be in a position to know the facts from the propaganda!

What is this project?

It’s aim is to explain what Satanic Ritual Abuse really is – the dictionary definition, as well as the devastating reality of its potential effects on innocent people.

The project takes the form of documentation and a website which will

  • define and explain what various alternative religions and subcultures which are conflated with SRA and Satanism really are and are about,
  • explain what real Satanist religion really is and
  • clarify the differences between real religious Satanism and the mythical “Satanism” which is created and perpetuated by SRA hysteria and irresponsible support for SRA hysteria and the religion-based industry behind it.

In its completed form, it consists of:

  • A full-length academic research paper which has been contributed to, verified, critiqued, peer-reviewed and endorsed by various local and international bodies both in and outside of the alternate religious and subculture groups demystified within the document, which will have been distributed internationally to a multitude of human rights and religious bodies and authority figures.
  • A brief 20 minute powerpoint presentation with notes carrying the gist of the message of the entire document.
  • Downloadable versions of all these documents will be provided on the website for free, along with links to sources referenced within them.
