Letter From The SAFF to Geoffrey Dickens Granddaughter, Louise
Dear Louise Dickens,
you realise the implications of what you've stated?
have proved to you beyond any shadow of a doubt by using his
own words out of his own mouth that Geoffrey Dickens was a liar. Both
to his wife about his fidelity and to the public about Satanic Abuse.
evidence I have provided you with is INCONTROVERTIBLE.
is no answer to it.
is THE TRUTH.
after 30 years of abject failure of ALL of your grandfather's
32 years of literally hundreds of thousands of bigots searching the
world for evidence of Satanic Abuse there has not been even ONE case
which proves it.
1988 Geoffrey Dickens claimed many times that 20 children in the
ongoing Broxtowe SRA case was undeniable 'proof' that SRA existed. By
June 1990 the official JET report proved that there was absolutely no SRA involved in the case at all.
an early police specialist in Cult Crime had, by 1990 concluded that
the vast majority of reports were false and worked-up by fundamentalist
1992, Kenneth Lanning, head of the FBI Violent Crime Unit concludes his
specialist report on claims of SRA and Satanic Crime. It is either
fake, or exaggerated petty crime. There is no SRA.
1992 a £2 million police inquiry into your Grandfather's lies in
Hull concluded that there was no SRA.
ONE of the accusations Geoffrey Dickens made has been proven.
1994 the Government's own official inquiry (LaFontaine) pronounced
his accusations false.
bones, No bodies, No forensic evidence of any kind, not one child
thousands of innocent people have had their lives destroyed by a myth
your grandfather started.
went quiet for a decade, then a new generation of SRA believers
jumped on the bandwagon and
you joined them. They began making similar trouble to that Dickens
made two decades before.
caused so much trouble over that period that several detailed police
investigations were put in place to answer their hysterical
suspicions and false accusations: This was the result:
SRA hysteria about Haut de la Garrene children's home in Jersey,
official report concludes no SRA involved.
Report concluding Savile investigation concludes no SRA involved.
February: Operation Midland disbanded - all allegations false.
October: The official Henrique report ruled that allegations were of
no substance and many fraudulent.
Operation Conifer (Ted Heath) closure report - allegations false.
January: Sabine McNeil, ringleader of the false allegations of SRA
against Christchurch School, Hampstead, is jailed for 9 years for
perverting the course of justice.
July: Carl Beech whom your clique promoted as a star-victim of SRA
but who turned out
to be a kiddie pervert himself and was given 18 years in jail for
fraud and perverting the course of justice by making
false allegations of SRA which you in your twitter feed have
retweeted and promoted.
despite all of these hundreds of pieces of evidence proving that
Geoffrey Dickens was a liar who made the most heinous accusations any
human can make against another, without one jot of proof, you still
insist 32 years later, that SRA exists and have conjoined with others
to promote the idea. You can point to absolutely no evidence to
support your views and you reject irrefutable facts like the ones
February: The governments own Historic Abuse Inquiry, after taking
the most extensive evidence judged that the
idea of a conspiracy of abusers in Westminster (which your
grandfather started) was bunkum.
tell me Louise, just WHY you believe in SRA?
reason why the world remains consistently full of evil is because
people like you ignore what is staring them in the face.
Rhodes, 19 May 2020.
The Most Persecuted Man in Britain.
The following never before seen
chronology from SAFF files is a diary which charts the persecution of
the owner of the Sorcerer's Apprentice bookshop in Leeds which was
falsely accused of being some how connected with SRA on the flimsiest of
It makes horrendous reading but is clear proof of how a gang of
fundamentalist Christian agitators were given carte blanche by the
British Media to do their worst and establish the lie of SRA in the
public mind. Moreover other fundamentalists are continuing the
lies about the Sorcerer's Apprentice even unto this day. An
Please note that this diary is not an exclusive list of SRA happenings
at the time, it is just a list of those things which contributed to the
persecution of the S.A. SAFF files are bulging with other
instances, articles, cuttings on Christian Fundamentalist propaganda and
letters which parallel the timings below.
OCTOBER 30 1987: Dianne Core, founder of the Childwatch Group
lambasts Halloween in the Grimsby Evening Telegraph. Although
no outright accusations about child-abuse linked to witchcraft
are made the embryonic allegations are fielded in epithets such
as ' a leading campaigner against child abuse gave a grim warning
that youngester taking apart in trick or treat adventures could
find themselves victims of sex perverts.'
JANUARY 3 1988: Sunday Sport reports "EVIL - Satanic Guides are
sold to kids". A picture of Geoffrey Dickens accompanies the article
which goes on to accuse the S.A. of selling devil worship kits
to innocent youngsters. Dickens says 'we must crack down on the
pedlars of evil'. "We are living in a mad society when perverted
cults which worship the devil can freely publish guides on how
to dabble in the occult. The Home Office must Act."
JANUARY 1988: The Colchester Evening Gazette publishes picture
of 'Satan's Cop' Sandi Gallant as she poses in bomber jacket against
a wall of graffitti proclaiming "SATAN LIVES". " 666"" and a showing
a crucifix with Black Sabbath written on it. "They call her Satan's
Cop, ten years ago fellow officers laughed when she said the Devil was
on the rampage. Now, thousands of demon related crimes later
they listen when she says 1989 could be a particularly bad year
for Satanic crime, not only in the U.S.A. but also in Britain"
GALLANT AND HER EMISSARIES KNEW EXACTLY THE TYPE OF SCAREMONGERING
WHICH WAS TO BE INFLICTED UPON THE U.K. BECAUSE THEY HAD ALREADY
SUCCEEDED IN COMMANDING THE U.S.A. POPULATION WITH THE SAME HYSTERIA
THE YEAR PREVIOUSLY. The article continues with Gallant alleging
that a 15 year old shot his 10 year old brother on Candlemass
last year. He said the devil made him do it". The rabid idea that
the biggest lies and distortions incite the greatest bigots continues
and is soon to become all too familiar. "Figures vary but the
most conservative place the number of devil worshippers in America
at more than FOUR MILLION. Last year TEN THOUSAND pre-teen
children were involved in crimes which included sacrificing animals
and other demonic cult activities. There are more than 200 unsolved
ritual murders in the U.S.A for 1988. ...there could be as many
as 500,000 ACTIVE SATANIST CULTS in Britain alone." Other similarly
ridiculous quotes in the article come from Geoffrey Dickens and
Kevin Logan proving beyond doubt that both Dickens & Logan had
cross-connections with the Stateside witch-hunt and knew of what
had happened there. (Ed: Two years later Gallant admits that she was utterly wrong about SRA and recants her statements: click on the image below to see full size version )
FEBRUARY 6 1988: The Weekly News reports on 14 year old Thomas
Sullivan a U.S.A. schoolboy who after writing a paper on Hinduism
began to read 'occult books'. "The lad was brought up amongst
good, God-fearing folk in Jefferson but within weeks he had become
obsessed by the forces of darkness". After getting a 'B' grade
for his paper Sullivan stabbed his mother to death during an argument
and then set fire to the house afterwards killing himself by slashing
his wrists. This terrible tragedy, obviously caused by the pressures
of school and adolescence is then whipped into the usual hysteria
about SATANISM to support the fundamentalist's claims.
FEBRUARY 1988: Chat magazine indulges in a bout of self-righteousness
titled SATANS CHILDREN and includes an interview with Audrey Harper but
her identity is obfuscated, she is only shown in silhouette and is given
the pseudonym of
Anna Dixon. Audrey Harper is a Christian fundamentalist who
the country lecturing to evangelical audiences about her supposed
past links with witchcraft. She begins to make her obnoxious
and disgusting allegations which she will later repeat and enlarge
upon at length but at this point in the campaign she is more subtle
and no direct claims of child-murder is included.
Harper admits that she was 'delivered' from Satanism after counselling
with a Christian Minister, (Ed; Roy Davies, of the Emmanuel Pentecostal
Church). A full blown exorcism presumably. The usual
distortions and mistruths are peddled. The article uses the Father
and Four Daughters sex- abuse case tried during July 1988 as an
example of what can happen and grossly distorts the evidence given
during the trial. The report does not include other pertinent
information which was disclosed during the trial such as
father was Dominican
(b) The 'Black Magic' was a form of ethnic
voodoo and had nothing to do with devil-worship or Witchcraft / Paganism.
(c) A detective on the case said in court that he thought the
man used black magic as a sham to influence the girls.
of the truth will be shown to hallmark ALL the distortions and
untruths perpetrated by the fundamentalists in this campaign. (Ed: click on the image below to get a larger version you can read)
MARCH 14 1988: Telegraph reports that Dianne Core & her Childwatch
'agents' are to travel to Tyneside to 'pursue leads in that area'
"WE ARE NOW INVOLVED IN INVESTIGATING A MORE FAR-RANGING SITUATION
INVOLVING BLACK MAGIC ALL OVER THE COUNTRY " Core says.
MARCH 15: 1988: The Northern Echo prints two connected articles
which throw a great deal of light upon what is to happen during
the next 12 months. One piece is by Tony Metcalf and
the relenting and conversion of STEPHEN MORGAN a self-professed
Chaos magician after being caught grave- robbing. Morgan had previously
freed himself from the fundamentalist movement in which his
were involved, then turned to occultism but now, in line
with a 2 year prison sentence he "recommitted his life to Jesus
Christ; he was terribly upset and asked me for forgiveness said
Pastor Darrill Dowden a Newton Aycliffe Pentacostalist who visited
Morgan who was sentenced to two years.' Morgan, had been very
'pushy' in making contacts within the occult and his involvement before
grave-robbing was about 2 years. . He had even started up his own
magical order ITOV to teach
other occultists though his knowledge of real occultism was obviously
home-schooled. In the article Morgan says "The subtler areas
of the Black Arts are fascinating. People Don;t understand the
powers of darkness and how it can drag you down." What a GOOD
excuse the occult is for one's lack of responsibility, eh?
There is of course no requirement in Chaos magick for robbing
this article was one written by MARTIN SHIPTON . Shipton was the
hack who did a hatchet job on Margaret Bruce and had done some
reporting about LEE & JANET JAMES who owned an occult supply business until they went bankrupt in 1986.
In this article Shipton again interviews Lee & Janet James who
are now giving him detailed behind-the-scenes information on how
black magicians and Satanists go about their work. In a statement
oh so reminiscent of a fundamentalist compulsion Janet James says
"People of all ages join covens for what they think is harmless
fun - they soon learn different. Music and incense laced with
drugs are used to numb their senses and before long they find
they are dancing in the nude and become sucked in for slave-labour
obeying the awful rituals of devil worshippers." These are the
people who took out full page advertisements in occult magazines
supplying customers for years whom they are now despising!
It is easy to see how turncoats and informers can be created when a
witch-hunt starts. The link between
the Northern Echo and Sunday Sun group of newspapers, is a journalist
by the name of John Merry who is in touch with Dianne Core. There is no doubt
in my mind that Dianne Core's trip to Co Durham was in order
to interview either or all of these 'turn-coats' and cross-pollinate
information from Merry & Shipton to further pursue these unfounded suspicions
about child- sex abuse and the occult.
MARCH 15 1988: Bradford Telegraph & Argus reports that Core says
that once recruited the innocent youngsters are drugged and forced
into sordid sex acts with Devil Worshippers. Core makes reference
to 3 boys under 11 being "snatched from a coven after being subjected
to the most bestial sexual acts" She continues the interview with
"We are following up leads from our many informants." The article
continued " Mrs Core said HER ORGANISATION WAS FULLY GEARED UP
FOR A YEAR-LONG PURGE AGAINST DEVIL WORSHIPPERS who sought to
sexually exploit children.
MARCH 16 & 18 1988: Hull Daily Mail reports that local Vicar Rev
Michael Vernon voices fears after Childwatch founder Dianne Core
claimed that 8 year olds were being forced into satanic rituals.
MARCH 24 1988: Dianne Core invites in an ex-FBI agent (Ed: Ted Gunderson
- see APRIL 9 1989 later) and a US child psychologist to 'deprogram'
youngsters supposedly caught in 'black magic' ring. Obtains front
page publicity from Hull Star. In the article reference is made
to Rev. Kevin Logan's survey of 300 Blackburn children forging the
link between Core and Logan.
(Ed: Logan's survey is oft quoted by the Media as though it is
some kind of proof of occultists preying on kids but it is in fact
just fundie propaganda. He distributed a tick-box questionnaire in
one Church of England school to 300 teenagers. Included were questions
about Ouija-Boards, Rock Music, Tarot Cards, TV 'magic'shows and almost
anything which had a mysterious or esoteric content. It was
impossible for any child NOT to end up incriminating themselves as
having an interest in the occult because Logan was so hypersensitive to
it. e.g.: He also complained about Harry Potter books acting as a
doorway to occultism! )
MARCH 25 1988: Northern Echo (John Merry's Paper) carries letter
from a Rob & Anita Pennell of Darlington which says that young
people must be warned not to get involved with Satanism following
the several anti-occult articles the Echo has printed. "I intend
to write post haste to the Home Secretary to get the witchcraft
laws repealed. Like The Homosexuality Act of 1968 it unleashed
a whirlwind covered with a cloak of respectability. ...this Act
needs to be changed as it is the very foundation of decaying standards
in our youth. ..The police have been warned about youths increasingly
involved with the occult and because they do not understand such
things they thought it was a big joke. Let me warn people it is
no joke, stay clear." The clearly fundamentalist right- wing approach
is evident in the Pennell's letter.
(Ed: The Pennells later contributed 'evidence' of SRA to Dickens SRA
Dossier. These are people whom even the local paper called 'Bible
MARCH 1988: Beth Gurevitch a self-styled 'white witch' joins with
Diane Core to compile a sensational black magic report to put
before MPs says Hull Star. Details from this dossier are to be
discussed during a commons debate called by Geoffrey Dickens MP.
Article says" report gives background information on many 'very
dreadful cases' and details of black magic rites, contact magazine
shops regalia and paraphernalia. Much of this information has
been supplied by white witch Beth Gurevitch'. IN fact Gurevitch
is a Tarot Reader and 'psychic counsellor' and has no connection
with mainstream occultism. The Blind leading the Blind, and giving
credence to the most damaging accusations since the sixties.
(Ed: Gurevitch appears to be a major player in the promotion of the harmful SRA myth. She later
started an occult supply shop in Birmingham supplying the very people
she had berated with occult equipment she is here condemning. And
her appearance on CTV's 'Weekend' programme on May 13 is mystifying as
she produced an image doll of Geoffrey Dickens with pins in it. This
caused enmity towards occultism from the audience and outrage which
'proved' the evil nature of occultists even though she was actively
collaborating with Dickens and contributing to his SRA Dossier at
the time! )
MARCH 13 1988: Sunday Sport Trashpaper includes an interview with
Audrey Harper in full spate. Her repetitive obnoxious allegations
about sexual abuse rape murder and drugs makes good reading for
Sunday Sport people. Audrey is more bullish about her SRA experiences? The connection
between The Sunday Sport and Dickens on anything to do with occult
and child-abuse has already been well-forged. Does this article
denote a link between Dickens and Harper? We shall see. (Ed: Yes it does. In 1990 Dickens wrote the foreward for Audrey Harper's 'Dance with the Devil' a biographic account of her supposed 5 years in
a Satanic Coven. 'God Bless you Audrey and keep you safe'

MARCH 21 1988: The Times reports that senior Tories are bringing
pressure to bear to insist that children in Britain's schools should
receive Christian education as the dominant component of RE in
the Education Reform Bill. Would it be too conspiratorial to suggest
that the churches have used witchcraft as a scapegoat to bring
pressure to bear on the Government to re-instate their dwindling
power base? Lady Cox alleges "Preoccupation with the occult and
with phenomena such as witchcraft is a recurring theme in many
RE courses" Mr Michael Alison the Second Church Estates Commissioner
and Lady Cox headed a powerful Christian lobby which eventually
GOT ITS WISH. Would it have done so had the Witchcraft-linked
sexual abuse scare not been so successful?
APRIL 7 1988: Beth Gurevitch is reported as performing an 'exorcism
ceremony' on 3 people in Hull. She says" Satanism is on the increase
and people are being pulled into it.... The cult of Satanism spreading....one
time I would get one call a year for help, now it's one a week..
the threat of satanism is very real indeed...' In fact Gurevitch
has only ever performed one ceremony of this type and it failed
miserably. Dr Keith Hearne, a psychotherapist, who works out
of Hull University and who has written a number of books on his
researches into lucid dreaming and occult phenomena knew the three
people who were 'exorcised' and was aware of the situation behind
the event which he considered to be both a shambles and unneccessary.
Gurevitch's attempt to 'exorcise' these three people succeeded
only in giving credence to the fundamentalists' claims that Satanism
was rife in the Humberside area and that involvement in the occult
When it isn't.
APRIL 15 1988: Hull Star reports SATANS PERVERTS MAY BE UNMASKED
and reveals that the Childwatch Dossier will be presented before
parliament earlier that day.
APRIL 15: 1988: Dickens speaks in The Commons: "Will the Leader
of the House set aside time for a debate on the workings of the
Fraudulent Mediums Act 1951 which repealed the Witchcraft act
1735. IT IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE IN THIS HOUSE THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE
BEEN CHARGED WITH AND CONVICTED OF OFFENCES AGAINST CHILDREN WERE
INVOLVED IN WITCHCRAFT INITIATION CEREMONIES We need a chance
to discuss the workings of Witchcraft AND HOW IT CAN BE CONTROLLED
IN THIS COUNTRY." ........ The WITCH-HUNT has begun. The hysteria
to be generated will be unheard of in modern times and will reveal
the extent to which the 'burn the witch' syndrome is still with
APRIL 16th 1988: The Northern Echo (Merry's paper) reports that
Dicken's Dossier which is eventually to be sent to the Home Secretary
now includes a letter from a Darlington couple by the name of
Rob & Anita Pennell of Darlington who have asked for Dickens'
advice. (see March 25). It now becomes clear of what kind of 'evidence'
Dicken's Dossier consists. Gurevitch's end-of-the-pier antics
and prejudices and ignorance coupled with information from biased
and prejudiced fundamentalists. Later this year the Reverend
Kevin Logan publishes his book "OCCULT & PAGANISM- a manifesto
for Christian Action" which, in its foreward, states that much
of the information contained in his book was given directly to
Dickens to form part of the Dossier. The much acclaimed dossier
is held as proof of the allegations by Dickens & Core and their
ilk but WILL NEVER be presented to the Home Secretary because it is propaganda tosh.
( Ed: Official Home Office letter from SAFF files dated 7th March 1989
shows Dickens never sent them his 'SRA Dossier'. Why would that
be? Because it was a collection of lies and unproven suspicions
and worthless anecdotal nonsense. It was worth more to the fundie gang
unsent, because they could continually allude to it whereas if they had
sent it then it would be in the public domain and criticiseable - SAFF
would have blasted apart their 'evidence' and they knew it.)
APRIL 19 1988: LBC Radio hold controversial phone-in on occult
and paedophilary following Dickens outbursts in parliament. Self
styled black witch Brian Leftwich 23, states that he knew of people
who had carried out human sacrifices. Wow! Big spread across national
newspapers the day after, BUT....
APRIL 20 1988: : Telegraph reports police swoop on London Broadcasting
Corporation's HQ during the programme following Leftwich's claims
and their investigation concludes that Leftwich had NO first hand
knowledge of human sacrifices and his information was hearsay.
In other word's fundie lies.
APRIL 20: 1988 Despite the police denial of Leftwich's outburst
the Hull Daily Mail which has supported Core almost daily
throughout this controversy runs front page headline "SATANIST
CONCERN" "Self confessed black witch, Brian Leftwich denounced
the worst forms of satanic rituals in a radio programme in London
last night. He spoke out in support of the Childwatch campaign
against the menace of drawing children into black magic rings."
Leftwich is quoted as saying ' Humberside based anti-child abuse
group Childwatch was right to warn children against being lured
into evil rituals.' It's a LIE. He can't prove
anything he is claiming, yet he get's front page headlines validating an
utter lie about human sacrifice.
APRIL 22 1988: Daily Mirror reports "CHILD ABUSE TESTS ARE AS
BAD AS WITCHCRAFT' The Marietta Higgs-Cleveland Child Abuse Affair
is said to have been due to ' A MODERN VERSION OF WITCHCRAFT INVOLVING
THE INVENTION OF TELL TALE SIGNS". What the newspaper meant was
not WITCHCRAFT but a WITCH-HUNT and even whilst the editor was pontificating
about how this state of affairs was allowed to happen the hysteria
fuelled by the fundamentalists was gaining momentum in other
areas aided and abetted by the media itself. The 'Tell Tale Signs'
euphemism was never so true.
APRIL 28 1988: Bradford Telegraph and Argus carries interview
with Dickens who claimed that he would soon hand over a full
dossier to the Home Office detailing cases. This dossier was NEVER
received by the Home Office. Dickens continues to speak of Witchcraft
and Satanism as being synonymous in the press even though he has
elsewhere agreed to the distinction between Neo Pagans and Satanism
when in the company of argumentative Neo Pagans.
APRIL 28 1988: Without warning I am besieged by reporters about Dickens' latest statement in the House which specifically
singled out The Sorcerer's Apprentice. The local paper carried
banner headlines "LEEDS FIRM MENTIONED IN HOUSE OF COMMONS" and
went on to report Dickens' statement verbatim "There was a shop
in Leeds which was the Flashmail order centre of the Sorcerer's
Apprentice. Nearby was another shop called Astonishing Books.
Both shops were under the Same Control. The Shops specialised
in books on witchcraft Black Magic Satanic Rituals and other occult
practices. False Altar Images such as a Phoenician Goddess statuettes
and a Satan skull ring were among the objects on sale. The Growth
of this business and other such shops reinforced his warning that
Britain could SOON FOLLOW THE PATH OF THE U.S.A. Dickens claimed
to have spoken to parents who said their children had been assaulted
in situations associated with the occult. Dickens repeats his
overall condemnation of Witchcraft and Paganism: " It was common knowledge
that many people convicted of offences against children had been
involved in witchcraft initiation ceremonies". These are out and out LIES, no such cases have ever occurred.
APRIL 28 1988: Radio Aire, local independent radio broadcast
a verbatim recording of Dickens statement in the House of Commons
and an interview with Dianne Core about Dickens' accusations concerning
the S.A. "Shops like this should be stopped" Core says.
Why should my shop be 'stopped'? It is legally in existence, has been
for 13 years and we have done absolutely nothing wrong or illegal
during that time. This is just fundamentalist censorship and oppression.
APRIL 28 1988: Having never met or seen Dianne Core I decide
to telephone her and put her right. I reach her on her car phone.
I explain that she has it wrong and that she obviously doesn't
understand occultism. She prattles on about the dangers of Ouija
Boards. I begin to suspect she is a fundamentalist. I tell her
quite clearly and categorically that all genuine witches would
as much like to rid the country of these paedophiles as she would
and I offer that if at any time she needs any help or advice or
any explanation or background information on any technique or
style of magick or group or anything at all then she should contact
me so that I and my friends throughout the U.K. can help her
all we can. She replies that THE COOK REPORT is now planning a
programme on child-abuse and witchcraft for screening in the summer
of 1989. This sounds like a threat. She takes down my telephone
number but does not contact me again. In later circumstances
she even refuses to answer any of my letters. (Ed: In ten
months time, 19th January 1989, Dianne core will appear at a
fundamentalist conference in Rome spouting scripture and demanding
Spiritual Warfare against Satanist-Freemasons. Yes folks it's the old
New World Order madness she's spouting. Click on the image below for a
larger format which you can read easily)
APRIL 28 1988: I write to Dickens stating that the S.A. is a bona
fide business and that we are not doing anything which is illegal.
Furthermore we are open to any investigation he may care to instigate.
I tell him about wholesomeness of genuine Paganism and warn him
that he is starting a witch hunt. I arrange with him or ONE OF
HIS REPRESENTATIVES to an on-air debate over local radio (arranged
in advance) and challenge him to come to my shop and point out
those items he thinks unacceptable and I will explain away his
fears. He does not reply. IN fact, although he does reply to some
other pagans who write him letters, he refuses point blank to
answer three of mine, including one from my solicitor, yet still
continues to make accusations and defamatory remarks about the
S.A. using parliamentary priviledge.
MAY 1988: The 21st Century Christian fundie magazine carries an article
on Childwatch. "The organisation's founder Dianne Core, A COMMITTED
CHRISTIAN , claims she has uncovered a case where 3 young boys
were submitted to a terrifying ordeal as part of a Black Magick
ceremony." If we didn't already know it this is proof of Core's
vested interest in slamming the occult over and above any possible
risk that children may run in occult involvement. The campaign
hinges on child-sex abuse but in reality it is a HOLY WAR.
MAY 10 1988 : Spiritualists in Hull take out a solus display advertisement
under Religious Notices in the Hull Daily Mail distancing themselves
from any connection with Witchcraft & Satanism, presumably to
avoid the intense prejudice which has been stirred up by M.G.
Wood the fundie editor of this despicable rag who has repetitively
featured claims of SRA from Childwatch and created intolerance to
alternative beliefs in the locality.
MAY 13 1988: Central Television's WEEKEND programme is broadcast
including a debate on Witchcraft related child abuse. Present
is David Austen; Geoffrey Dickens; Dot Griffiths and Beth Gurevitch.
During the programme Gurevitch makes no mention of her prior
connection with the Childwatch-Dickens campaign and produces a
doll of Dickens with pins in it. This considerably antagonises
the audience and effectively undermines any genuine case the other
occultists desire to put forward about the validity of Neo Paganism.
Yet we already know that Gurevitch has been instrumental in 'grassing'
on various aspects of the occult in order for Dickens to compile
his dossier. In fact an interview with Dickens in the April
24 Grimsby Evening Telegraph underlined that ' Mr Dickens who
received much of his information on black witchcraft from North
Humberside white witch Beth Gurevitch and said that disgusting
ceremonies were being held in which children were being sexually
abused by Satanists'. Just WHAT skullduggery is going on here?
MAY 16 1988: My MP agrees to talk with Dickens and tries several
times to see him but Dickens is always 'unobtainable'.
MAY 20 1988: Editorial in Hull Daily Mail concerns the local and
national uproar about witches and child molestation allegations
( which the editor accepts as proven) and then Wood goes on to
again commend Brian Leftwich for revealing the facts about Human
Sacrifice on LBC radio.
EVEN THOUGH THE POLICE SAID IT WAS UNTRUE.
JUNE 16 1988: M.G. Wood the editor of the Hull Daily Mail who has washed
the brains of his Hull readership over SRA refuses an advertisement for
a pagan moot which was
intended for publication under religious notices because 'paganism
is not a religion'.
JULY 1 1988: My MP eventually collars Dickens. He writes: 'frankly
he seems to not know a great deal about your business but he is
convinced that what he calls a list of sales items HAS BEEN COMPLAINED
ABOUT BY VARIOUS PEOPLE. '
So based on unproven third hand anecdotal evidence from people which has
absolutely no basis in fact, Geoffrey Dickens is prepared to smear and
stigmatise an honest man to the nation with the most heinous accusations
one could make against another person, just because he is a committed
Christian and hates non-believers. Here in one foul swoop we have
confirmation of the fact that Dickens SRA 'Dossier' was not evidence but
a pack of lies and suspicions.
(Ed: Dickens was a clever self-publicist, he eventually, at
various times produced no less than 7 (seven) 'dossiers' which he waved
in the air as 'proof' of various wrongdoings. His last dossier was the
SRA Dossier. His first 'dossier' was the Hayman Dossier which
became conflated with recent false accusations against a supposed Ring
of VIPabusers in parliament. In fact Dickens Dossiers formed a
sizeable plank of questioning in the government's Historical Abuse
Inquiry (IICSA) and this is what they had to say after hearing extensive
evidence: click on the image to open up large version) However
the SAFF has traced ALL of Dickens Dossiers and has analysed and listed
them in detail here: http://saff.nfshost.com/dickens.htm
AUGUST 3 1988: Dickens thirst for publicity for his campaign knows
no bounds. He claims, following the disappearance of 15 year old
Lee Boxell that runaway children are being murdered at satanic
rituals. Police searching for Lee Boxell become angry and say
" He's spouting nonsense. Lee's parents are worried to death
and if they read Mr Dicken's nonsense it will not help them. All
is fair in Holy Wars.
(Ed: In hindsight Lee Boxell wasn'ta Satanic Abuse victim and there was
nothing in the case which pointed to it being so, it was just another
perverse attempt by Dickens to get coverage for his Chistian Crusade
against occultists. Yet Dickens along with Rev. Kevin Logan and
Dianne Core jumped in to back that terrible idea in the cutting below.
They had absolutely no evidence of ANY case which indicates that
Satanists are abducting and killing children, yet they spout it as
though fact. Click on the image below for a larger version.
AUGUST 17 1988: The Sport Trashpaper has two page article 'SAVE
MY BABY FROM SATAN' and includes what are to become familiar quotes
from Dianne Core and Geoffrey Dickens, and Kevin Logan who reveals
his own U.S.A. fundamentalist connections by saying "In the U.S.A.
police forces hold teach-ins on the occult and they are very open
on these matters" He was referring, of course, to Sandi Gallant's
campaign and the resultant Activity Profile/Data fact-file as well as
CCIN (Cult Crime Impact Network) a group of Christian fundamentalist
policemen who were networking to try to prove Satanic Crime. In
the same article Dickens announces that his 'dossier' naming
'perverted members of a sinister Satan Cult' HAS GONE MISSING
ON ITS WAY TO THE HOUSE OF COMMONS. "The sensational Document
was passed to CHILDWATCH supremo Dianne Core by a terrified defector
from the mysterious O.T.O. whose depraved rituals end in unbridled
black magic orgies of sex and violence". Core sent the dossier
to Dickens home but ' the package whose full contents could have blown
British society apart' - never arrived. Hardy har. Not only are we supposed
to believe that such valuable information was sent through the
post without registering or recording the package but that Dicken's
Dossier became irretrievably lost in the post. We are expected
to believe that no-one thought of making a copy of any part of
such valuable information before it was sent as a safeguard against
loss and that the people who originally donated the information
had also not kept copies and are, furthermore, completely unable
to re-construct the data. How CONVENIENT for Core & Dickens.
Now the existence of the dossier cannot be DISPROVED and like
Harper's rantings they are free to refer to it as though proven FACT. Throughout
the whole child-abuse/witchcraft bogey the fundamentalists make
more use of mystery than the occult does. (Ed: The SAFF managed to
obtain an early photograph of Maureen Davies who, along with Rev. Kevin
Logan was an activist and director of Reachout Trust, they
appeared together in almost every SRA article and broadcast. Though poor
in quality Davies is stood in front of a bookshelf which contains
box-files almost exclusively from American Christian Fundie groups, such
as CCIN, Mike Warnke and the notorious File18, which had spawned
the idea of SRA in America BEFORE it occurred in the UK.
Therefore it is conclusively clear that Davies imported ideas on SRA
from the U.S.A.
Later in the summer of 1989 Davies travelled to the U.S.A. to
meet with all her US fundie contacts. This extract is from Reachout's
Winter 1989 newsletter. Proof of them here also collaborting with CRO,
The Christian Response to the Occult. It's a conspiracy folks! )
AUGUST 24 1988: Hull Daily Mail reports that Dickens' claims his
life is being threatened by vengeful satanists but that he pledges
to carry on the fight against black magic rituals and is building
up a file to present to the Home Secretary. "Evidence is growing
of witchcraft & crimes against children" Dickens says.
SEPTEMBER 13 1988: Hull Daily Mail report that SCARF (Hull parents
watch committee) and Childwatch join forces to press action from
the local education authority over their allegations about two
boys supposedly involved in a 'Satanic Vice Ring'
SEPTEMBER 15 1988: Hull Star carries front page article about
three Satanic 'obscene' telephone calls to Dianne Core under the
banner heading "SATANISTS IN HATE CAMPAIGN". On the wave of public
indignation and emotion her campaign has so far generated she
reveals more of her motives. "..I am determined to smash the groups
who have been involved. ...CHILDREN ARE BORN IN GODS NAME AND
IN GODS NAME THEY MUST BE PROTECTED. Just like a fundie. Tell
heinous lies about a competing religion and provokes people to breaking
point, then when one of them loses their temper phones up and swears,
use it as proof of
the lies being true.
SEPTEMBER 18 1988: Daily Telegraph reports that members of the
Beacon Christian Fellowship in Elgin have been banned from preaching
in the street by the local council because they were relating
terrible stories about how an 8 year old girl had been raped and
abused for devil worship, to passing children and adults. The 'FACTS'
about SRA are now common currency. Without ONE SHRED OF EVIDENCE THE FUNDAMENTALISTS
HAVE BEEN ABLE TO HIJACK MEDIA ATTENTION AND THE PUBLIC CONSCIOUSNESS
AND MANIPULATE BOTH TO THE DETRIMENT OF MINORITY BELIEFS.
SEPTEMBER 19 1988: Dickens featured in Daily Telegraph article;
'BABIES AND YOUNG CHILDREN ARE BEING SACRIFICED TO THE DEVIL IN
WITCHCRAFT RITUALS ALL OVER BRITAIN. with witchcraft sacrifice
nothing is ever found, he says....I AM BUILDING UP A DOSSIER WHICH WILL
PROVIDE CONCRETE PROOF on the evils of Satanism. Then you can
rest assured I will go to the police' Dickens is fiddling the
same old tune, yet again I reiterate. NO DOSSIER WAS EVER PRESENTED
FOR OFFICIAL OR PUBLIC GAZE. How long do we have to wait before
a promise becomes a lie?
SEPTEMBER 19th 1988: Radio 4's TODAY programme carries interview
with Reverend Kevin Logan who made the now usual fundamentalist
statements about child sacrifice. When cornered by the interviewer
Logan said that there had been ritual murders on Pendle Hill.
Knowing this statement to be false I write to The Chief Constable
of Lancaster and ask him to investigate. He responds "The Reverend
Logan has been seen and has explained that the one particular
case of satanistic murder, in which he described the locality
as 'here' did in fact occur in the Midlands in 1986." I know that
was against one Paul Bostock of Leicester who was 21 and the link
with the occult was UNPROVEN. ANOTHER UNTRUTH by a fundamentalist
in a position of responsibility whose testimony is likely to be
accepted at face value by Jo Public. Kevin Logan is no stranger
to exaggeration and contortion. He made headlines during 1986
by publishing the results of a questionnaire he conducted with
300 schoolchildren. The outcome was that 87% of these children
PROFESSED TO HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE OCCULT. Nobody cared
to enquire further. Had they done so they would have seen that
the questionnaire qualified as being 'occult' fantasy games and
horror movies. What teenager DOESN'T play fantasy games and watch
horror movies? And what have these Media productions got to do
with Satanism? And so these people manipulate the population
with their absurdities.
SEPTEMBER 21 1988: SHE magazine publishes most deplorable article
by Bill Williamson , (the then new assistant editor). The four
Page article is the most horrendous and absurd pack of lies and
distortion about Witchcraft. This article is the one that most
occultists remember for its audacious uncorroborated allegations
and it includes characters which are all too familiar including:
Geoffrey Dickens; John Merry; Dianne Core; Audrey Harper; Kevin
Logan; Doreen Irvine. In a reference to her Stateside contacts
Core is quoted as saying "FLUSHED OUT OF AMERICA a great many
paedophiles have now joined covens in my area". I bet she can't
even name one of them! Again she reveals
that she is conversant with the witch-hunt in the U.S.A. The SHE
article ends with a reader offer of a SHE campaign pack against
Witchcraft. Presumably this was provided by Reachout Trust.
This is unbelievable even by the low standards of the British
SEPTEMBER 21 Radio Leeds hope to set up a phone-in interview
with Dickens and me over the SHE article. I heartily agree and
cannot wait until I can get to grips with Dickens. At the studio
later that morning I am told that Dickens does not wish to speak
with me and instead Bob Williamson (who wrote the article) will
be on the line. I tear into Williamson and totally and utterly
undermine his arguments showing the article to be 100% hearsay.
He blabbers and excuses but is left with egg on face.
Hundreds of pagans write to SHE complaining and from the response
it soon becomes obvious that SHE have miscalculated. Point of
interest: When I write to the editor of SHE magazine some months
later with the Home Office statement that Dickens has failed
to produced the much acclaimed dossier and that the Home Office
do not have any evidence to support the allegations the editor
of SHE replies that she's SORRY and that Bill Williamson is no
longer part of the She editorial team. "It seems to me that the
best thing to do would be to make redress when we next tackle
the subject..." Everyone is always 'sorry' when they are eventually
made to listen to the Truth but by then it is too late and the
fundamentalist campaign have been given boosts and support which
cannot later be corrected.
SEPTEMBER 28 1988: I give interview about Halloween to journalist
from BBC World Service on positive aspects of esotericism and
paganism and arrange for Leonara James of the Pagan Federation to meet
in the London studio with an organiser of Christian Heartbeat
Organisation for a discussion.
OCTOBER 1988 : Rydale (North Yorkshire) Christian organiser and
nine other Christians who run a local Christian Coffee Shop meeting
house write to local schools and call for a ban on celebration
of Halloween in the classroom. THIS REQUEST IS HEEDED. The Xtians
are winning hands down.
OCTOBER 8 1988: James Whale TV Show goes out with a phone-in at
which Dicken's is present. He puts foot in mouth over S.A.
I, sat at home at 1.30.am. see it. I ring through and I complain
directly to Dickens over his untrue allegations about Paganism.
In the filmed interview (recorded previously at the S.A. ) I state
that we do not and have not ever sold to people under the age
of 18 years of age and that people who term themselves occultists
are not involved in sexual molestation of children. (Dickens already
KNOWS that we have this voluntary age restriction policy as both my solicitor
and I have already written and told him of it) I challenge Dickens
to present his FACTS. He bumbles. I accuse him of not having any
facts to present. Dickens loses his temper "Your kind are a Menace.".
"You are an absolute Menace". Dickens refers to the Nottinghamshire
sex-offence trial which he says is his specimen trial. "You want
proof, you wait until the Nottinghamshire trial, then you'll get
your proof." In the finality 8 of the 11 people arraigned were
found guilty of child-molestation but the occult connection did not
exist. The policeman who brought the case to court,
Beeton, said afterwards "Although connection with the occult was
a feature of the case there was absolutely no evidence to support
the allegation. ...at Halloween the family did dress up as
That was it. As usual the seed of any semblence of truth in any of the fundamentalist
allegations is based solely on their rabid paranoia. A Halloween
fancy dress party becomes a Satanic Organisation's ritual in the
minds of these zombies. There is no doubt that the family WERE
sexual abusers but they were NOT occultists.
So another major case, indeed probably Dickens MOST major case of
claimed SRA bites the dust. So far he has produced NO evidence
whatsoever of SRA.
(Ed; On the 7th June 1990 the JET report - the official report
into what exactly happened in the Broxtowe case, was published and
proved that an ordinary case of familial abuse had been twisted and
misrepresented as Satanic Abuse at the political convenience of
fundamentalist Satan Hunters involved in it. THERE WAS ABSOLUTELY
NO STANIC ABUSE AT ALL. The full JET report on Broxtowe can be
found on the net but our overview of it condenses all the wicked things
the fundamentalists did to hijack and misrepresent this case. http://saff.nfshost.com/broxtowe.htm )
OCTOBER 17 1988: The Independent runs an article supporting Maureen
Davies' REACHOUT TRUST accusations about SRA. Including interview
with a Mother who claims her son became possessed through occult
involvement. Also contains supportive expert advice from Dr Stuart
Checkley (psychiatrist) and Dr Russell Blacker (psychiatrist)
- both believed fundamentalist activists. Also included is information from
Dickens and one Ian Thain (a self-confessed conversion from Witchcraft
- "I saw demons" ) and Roger Forster leader of HEARTBEAT who claimed
to have seen FIFTEEN HUNDRED cases "There are rites which include
sexually abusing little children". The conclusion of the article
is: Halloween is not just harmless fun for children; black magic
games can turn into terror and child abuse. There was not one
shred of balance in this despicable Independent article. Even
though genuine witches and pagans and satanists are crying out to talk
to the media they were ignored. (Ed. Checkley and Blacker were indeed
full-blown Christian fundamentalists. In January 1988 Checkley and
Blacker were involved in the preparation and the publication of
'Doorways To Danger' a religious tract against Astrology, Tarot
Cards Ouija Boards etc. Eventually Checkley, after
retirement, travelled around Churches lecturing on the Dangers of
SRA! Linked with Caring Professions Concern and the
Christian Medical Fellowship, two fundie outfits which believe in
possession, the 8 page booklet, which tells Christian activists
how to complain to authorities, schools, etc, ( that is FABRICATE
allegations to make a complaint)
includes an interview with Kevin Logan of Reachout and is published by
the Christian Response to the Occult, with which Reachout is
associated. In October 1990 a video tape version of Doorways to
Danger was made and caused uproar when sent, unsolicited to UK
schools. A new addition to the sectarian hate in the video
version was an interview with the fundie Team leader of the social work
staff who tried to portray the Broxtowe abuse case as SRA. Getting
the picture? If the SAFF can discover all this why was the
crappy Independent newspaper fooling its readers by publishing blatently
sectarian hatred? Click on the image for a larger version)
OCTOBER 19 1988: THE SPORT trashpaper prints defamatory article
about S.A. with headline. "BAN THIS EVIL DEATH BOOK STORMS MP".
Article misrepresents chapter on re-incarnation in Liber Null
as persuading children to commit suicide. MP quoted in article
is Dickens who now knows full well that we do not sell to children
but he still supports the defamatory premise of the article which is utterly fallacious anyway.
OCTOBER 26th 1988: The Sport trashpaper includes article on Kevin
(rent-a-quote) Carlyon's repetitive attempts to use the Long Man of
for his rituals. He has consistently riled the Rev John Ashby
in whose parish the Long Man resides. Ashby makes the usual paranoid
statements linking Devil Worship with witchcraft. The Sport uses the
same naked pictures of Witches as did SHE magazine which came from Janet
& Colin Bord's picture library . The SHE article might have caught
them out but there is no excuse in the Bords renting these pictures again in the present climate.
OCTOBER 28 1988: I am expecting an arranged visit from BBC
crew. We had discussed and agreed the content of what they were to film
and made an appointment for them to turn up at 1:30pm. At 1:20pm
a car draws up and a camera crew gets out. They
photograph the outside of my shop and then come in and ask if they can
take a few shots inside. Thinking these people are the BBC crew
agreement I let them in. Just then the real BBC crew turns up and I find
out I have been allowing ITN to film my business without knowing
where or how the clip was to be used. Such subterfuge will soon
become common currency with the evil British media in their anti-occult
OCTOBER 30 1988: The ITN film of the S.A. was used in Sunday 2.00
news as a backdrop to the most incredibly hysterical comments
and allegations by fundamentalists including interviews with Dianne
Core and the Cheshire Mother whose son is said to have tried to knife
her. Her. I don't have any connection with this story of any
kind. Her son was diagnosed by a fundamentalist psychiatrist
(probably from the Christian Association of Psychiatrists) as possessed
by the devil when he attacked his mum. The newspiece Also includes
contributions from, guess who? Kevin Logan and
Maureen Davies. The whole premise of the piece was that it was
easy for children to obtain occult items and books. Nobody seems
to care that the shop used as an example in this piece, my shop,
has a voluntary ban on serving minors and HAS NEVER
KNOWINGLY SOLD OCCULT ITEMS TO UNDER 18s during 15 years in business.
The deceit is shocking.
OCTOBER 31 1988: After telephoning Independent Broadcasting Authority to complain, and being met with middle-management
procrastination I telephone ITN direct and complain. They waffle
and say that they can't find the news item in their computer but will
take my number and get back to me. They don't, so later in the
day I telephone my solicitor to ask him to send an official letter
to ITN. demanding a copy of the tape and their comments. First
he telephones them. They agree to let him have a copy if he applies
by letter. He does so but the tape is never supplied - see later.
OCTOBER 31th 1988: Daily Express carries account of warnings by
Dianne Core against children becoming involved in the Occult.
"Halloween is a major date within the occult calendar.... and
there is every danger of them being abused by paedophiles". There
has never been a case where children have been abused at Halloween.
is quoted in the same article" Most Halloween parties are just
fun and games but have been used to entice youngsters in to the
occult. Satanism is a dangerous menace which is quickly spreading"
Also in the same article were quotes by Rev Kevin Logan. Again
the three campaigners are all connected Core -,Dickens, Logan.
Passing information and journalists between them the fundamentalists
have everything their own way. NOT ONE journalist considers
a Witch for the opposite view. Those who perhaps intend to
so are simply introduced to people like Audrey Harper who
she claims she WAS a witch (highly unlikely as you will
fits the bill and the conspiracy of lies continues.
OCTOBER 31 1988: 7.am Today programme
broadcasts an interview
with me about Halloween plus opposing
views from anti-halloween
Christians. Goes down okay.
Another interview with me is broadcast
by Radio Leeds and is very lighthearted and entertaining. A
World Service broadcast with Leonara James is a bit reserved
she does well with a rabid Fundamentalist making ridiculous
allegations at her heels.
OCTOBER 31st 1988: 4.pm. A protest group of over 30 Christians
outside the S.A. to protest Halloween. They hand
out leaflets warning passers by and
customers not to involve
themselves in Halloween for fear of God's
wrath. We try to
talk to them but they are off on one so inreturn S.A. staff give out THE DAILY BIBLOS the antidote
to fundamentalist broadsheets and neutralise their effect ( On line Copy
of The Daily Biblos available here)
to passers by.

DECEMBER 6th 1988: THE POST newspaper carries front page
POLICE QUIZ TV WITCH. This story is a result of the
public outrage from the appalling Time and Place
where Christian Fundamentalist Audrey Harper who claims
she was at
one time a witch and said she had witnessed a child
having its throat cut. Harper can make these claims of being
a witch repetitively and nobody bothers to ask for names, dates,
places, or any form of orroboration whatsoever. Amazing.
DECEMBER 6th 1988: I write to Brian Hayes Chief Inspector of
Surrey Constabulary who are investigating Harper's claims which
happened on their patch at Virginia Water. I ask
whether these claims have been investigated before ( I know
they have) and whether
they will caution Harper about wasting
police time for doing it again? He writes
back that she is
under investigation but that when the results
are forthcoming he
will not inform me in any case.
And then they wonder why
these false accusations continue.

DECEMBER 7th 1988: The Post morning newspaper has printed a

one 13 year old boy supposedly victimised by

disgusting allegations. Dickens has

trusted that Dickens
would discriminate between devil worship
and the religion of Paganism.
DECEMBER 6th 1988: The Post again prints details of Audrey

revealing when she
was asked why she confessed on the Time &

be split up by the establishment
if professional social workers
adopted 'symptoms' of ritual sex
abuse resulting from the twisted
minds of fundamentalists. His
reply ran "I am in
receipt of your letter of March 10. The press
report to which you refer was totally inaccurate. There are
plans to hold a conference of the type you describe", and
none was ever held; in Nottingham at least. (Ed:
Dawson later - October 1990) appears in Doorways to Danger - the video
version of the infamous Fundie tract leaflet, stating: " we have learnt that some families some adults get
involved with satanic groups whose main aim is to destroy everything
that is good everything that is good about human life and human
values, and one particular target in that would be that they
should hurt and defile children. As you are probably aware Christ said
'Touch not one hair of this child's head', satanists believe that they
should do the opposite of that. " - Of course Judith Dawson has
never come across a satanist who has ever done that and the three
decades since she made that statement without any case being won proves
it was simply bigotry. Is anyone involved in these false accusations NOT
a sectarian we wonder?)
MARCH 7th 1989: At last after many months of continuous letter
I managed to obtain a definitive statement from the Home
Perhaps the Nottinghamshire development had precipitated
action. The H.O. had been particularly inactive to my 12
letters. This statement is MOST welcome, it reads
"Firstly, as you point out, according to press reports, Mr
Dickens MP has sent the Home Secretary a dossier of
cases allegedly connected with witchcraft. However, this has
been received and the Home Office has no other evidence that
is a problem of the kind Mr Dickens describes. The
is satisfied that the existing law on child abuse would
to deal with any offences against children which
might be connected
with witchcraft. "
There we have it; Dickens Witch-hunt was a tissue of
without any factual evidence to support them.
However, now that
the lies and deceit have been injected into the
of the public their untruths have become reality in
and the wave of persecution cannot be halted and the damage done
may be irrecoverable.
MARCH 16 1989: Dianne Core's new Agony Aunt column in the
Daily Star includes a letter from someone complaining that
13 year old son is playing with a ouija board. Core says.
the object immediately Ouija boards are
dangerous and should
not be used at all.. some children have had
to have treatment
for shock. Please get rid of this awful game
MARCH 19th 1989: John Merry writes a typically biased and
anti-occult story in the Sunday Sun newspaper based on
with a couple of idiots who claim to run a group
with the rather
unimaginative name of the Order of the Black Dog. Their
crimes include biting heads off pigeons and lashing women
whips. In the text Merry is lauded by his editor as a
journalist' who has been invited to address
a ROYAL SOCIETY OF MEDICINE conference with more than 150
child pyschiatrists. The conference is looking at the
created by occult activity. Also at the conference will
surprise, Dianne Core and Maureen Davis. Subsequently
revealed that the conference WAS NOT organised
by the Royal Society
of Medicine at all, but in fact was organised
by the REACHOUT organisation
in rented rooms AT the RSM.
When I contacted the RSM about this
obvious misuse of the kudos and authority of the RSM the
Manager refused point blank to reveal who had rented the
and hung up. Further questions levelled at the Head of
at the RSM produced vehement and absolute response
to distance the RSM from any such conference.
(Ed: This was the
first 'Satan Seminar' held in England. It was organised by the
Christian Association of Psychiatrists who, as pointed out earlier, are a
fundie group linked with other fundie activist groups with a stake in
the SRAmyth and all the main SRA sectarian pushers attended. )
MARCH 21st 1989: Dianne Core, normally very reserved and
when making statements in the U.K. Again shows that
she is willing
to go OTT when outside of the U.K. (remember
her '4,000 children sacrificed
per year' interview with the New
Federalist) and sends a blatantly self-promotional Western
Union Mailgram to Michael Aquino at the
Temple of Set . " I Dianne
Core, founder of childwatch from Great
Britain hereby, this Day
March 21, 1989 IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD
Challenge YOU Michael
Aquino Head of the Temple of Set, one of
the most insidiously
vicious Satanic Institutions in the U.S.A.
to debate me. ...I hold
you personally responsible for the hideous
abuse of our
children's minds...."etc. Strange that Core thought
it fitting to challenge Aquino to a debate on TV in the U.S.A.
Dickens, who is still in close contact with her over anti-occult
strategy) refused ON TWO OCCASIONS to enter into debate with me
the U.K. Of course her offer to 'debate' did co-coincide
an expenses paid visit to the U.S.A. to speak to the
based Martin Luther King Foundation committee on Human
about Satanic Abuse. The MLKF is a Lyndon LaRouche
agitprop outreach and has nothing to do with the real Martin Luther King
MARCH 23rd 1989: The Early Times (a 'quality' format
newspaper aimed at schoolchildren ) carries a report
on the evils
of fantasy games. The REACHOUT trust has them
dancing their tune and blames Dungeons & Dragons
Michael Ryan's Hungerford massacre in 1987 because he played
through the mail. This is the kind of
stupid evidence Reachout major in.
MARCH 30th 1989: Hull Star newspaper features Dianne Core's
Aunt column again. Her star letter is from a mother about a
who is 'addicted' to heavy metal music. "I went to my son's
and was horrified when I looked at the words on these
The lyrics consist of death, rape, murder, ripping
bits and Satan Worship. I would like to ban my son
to this filth. How do I go about it? Dianne
says "In America
some children have been very badly affected
by Heavy Metal. Kids
have needed counselling. Others have become
violent and suicidal."
Again Core reveals her links with the U.S.A. fundamentalists and
her support for barmy Xtian allegations.
MARCH 30th 1989: Hull Daily Mail reports on Core's recent
to the U.S.A. Core has returned from a 10 day fact-finding
in America and described it as "heart-rending". "If we
address ourselves to the problem soon it will get as bad as
is over there". " I HAVE LEARNED WE MUST COMMUNICATE MORE
THIS COUNTRY BETWEEN PROFESSIONAL AND VOLUNTARY SERVICES"
is a clue to the second stage of the fundamentalist
Co-operation between 'voluntary' (i.e. Christian
busy bodies) organisations and professionals (child
psychiatrists; counsellors, police etc) is the clearly
next stage of the fundamentalist
Maureen Davis' REACHOUT trust clearly
revealed this strategy in her partly
illiterate monograph SATANIC
RITUAL ABUSE which is sent out with
other Reachout literature and
which intends to muster the fundamentalist
agitators. In this document Davies gave four ascending courses
action which her ilk planned to take as long ago as 1987.
"(1) Expose it through public media and professional agencies.
(2) Organise a national contact point
(3) Conferences with all agencies to expose and give case studies
must be held.
(4) Encourage the police and social workers to be alert to the
As you can see stages 1,2 and 3 had already been successfully
inaugaurated during this year.
The article on Core's tour to East Coast USA cities
'She was invited by the Luther King Human Rights
they have a asked her to return and lecture on the West
later this year. "People over there are desperate to find
of dealing with abuse; many wanted to set up Childwatches in
own communities. The article continues that Mrs Core is
to Munich in April to discuss the possibility of opening a
centre there. All this activity is being paid for by
Lyndon La Rouche's agitprop magazine The New Federalist. LaRouche was an
extreme right-wing activist who specialised in black propaganda. He was
eventually jailed in the US.
APRIL 1st 1989: Bella Magazine produces a by now familiar
on Satanistic linked sex-abuse with the usual queue of
Logan; Harper; Davies; Dickens; Core; et
al. We discover that
Dickens is yet again 'preparing a
report to present to the Home
Secretary' (it is now almost a
full year since duplicitous Dickens first announced his intention of
sending his SRA Dossier to the Home Secretary. There obviously
isn't one, it's a ruse. The article continues revealing that the
Laurie Mansbridge has suckered in to all the usual Reachout
misdirections " This
week the Royal Society of Medicine have
organised a special conference
on Child Abuse and The Occult." (NO
it was organised by the Christian Association of Psychiatrists,
somewhat different). "There are 40,000 to 100,000
active in Britain" NO, the Occult Census estimated less than 3,000 and
none of them commit illegal acts anyway. Again the allegations,
by any facts whatsoever, are paraded and
the public again confuse
Witchcraft / Paganism with
Satanism and Devil Worship, tell the plebs that every single one of them
is abusing kids. Mansbridge is a disgrace to journalism.
APRIL 8th 1989: Yet another woman, now safe in the hands of
claims to have suffered abominations when she was a witch.
Cambridge Town Crier, like most of the rest of the
press in this country is willing to publish any
without recourse to fact or substantiation
and without giving those they accuse the opportunity to reply. The
a resounding ring of deja-vu. "Deborah is not
willing to divulge
her age or her identity"..." Deborah says she can recognise
involved with the occult by a 'dark shadow' over their
Deborah was whipped by her father for refusing to eat human
exhumed from a local Graveyard"..."Babies born into the
are not registered and can be used for sacrifice". "
Compared with these capital crimes Deborah's other revelations are
somewhat timid. She says
reading horoscopes, playing Dungeons
& Dragons and participating
in spiritual healing are
inroads into black magic." It becomes
obvious that these people have a bad case of 'monkey see
do' resulting from the continuous barrage of sensational
publicity which are giving fundies who have been in the wilderness for decades new traction with the masses .
APRIL 9th 1989: The Sunday Sport trashpaper carries
"I SKINNED MY BABY FOR SATAN" headline over an
of two new-born and crinkly Siamese twins with
the caption 'pickled...sacrifices'
Yet ANOTHER , born again
supposed ex-witch parades her obnoxious
tales. Why shouldn't
they? The idiot hacks never challenge them whatever they say. This
one , Jackquie Balodis isn't even British, but her
substantiated by Ted Gunderson , former Los Angeles
bureau head of
the FBI "I've talked to hundreds of people across
the U.S.A. with
similar stories and I just had to believe it".(
Could this be the same 'FBI AGENT' whom Dianne Core hosted
March 1988? Well YES it was, Gunderson is another
fundie doing God's Work) Needless to say Jacquie Balodis now runs a
group called Overcomers Anonymous which helps
people who are
'wrapped up in cults'.
APRIL 13th 1989: The epidemic of those willing to now claim,
being saved by Jesus, that they were witches and can
most horrible stories, is gaining hysterical proportions.
Milton Keynes Citizen
reports that Betty Weltz (a member of the
local Pentecostal Covenant
Fellowship lead by Andy Forbes) says
"The power source witches
have, whether white or black, is
directly from Satans Kingdom".
Yes folks God will love you all the more if you lie without
in his name and for his Kingdom for all things are
when fighting Satan.
APRIL 14th 1989: Daily Mail again hype the Satanic connection with
information from their man in New York concerning a
Drug ring which allegedly involved human sacrifice.
to do with Satanism of course but what does
that matter? In the
1920s the Chicago villains used to give
their enemies concrete
boots, now Drug barons chop 'em up in
little pieces and burn them.
Only the hysterical wave of
anti-witchcraft mania can link the
two and the convenience of
Sandi-Gallants mega-reason fact-file
for ascribing a ritual
killing lets hard-pressed cops off the
hook and gets the public
involved and concerned.
APRIL 18th 1989: We learn that Trust House Forte, the owners
the largest chain of hotels and exhibition halls in the U.K.
made a corporate decision to ban further psychic fayres or
exhibitions on their properties following the anti-occult
and fundamentalist protests at fayres throughout the
APRIL 23rd : BBC RADIO broadcast their SUNDAY programme which
a piece about witchcraft related child-abuse based mostly
interview with, guess who? YES, Maureen Davies of the
REACHOUT trust. The usual
lies are paraded and there is no
counter-argument or attempt to
question the allegations. I write and complain to the
Eventually I receive a reply which gives as an
excuse the fact
that BBC 4 could find no-one to represent
that Maureen Davies has boasted that her
fact-file contains details
of all the occult groups and satanic
organisations in the country
this is something of a weak
APRIL 25TH 1989: The fundamentalists are winning the
war hands down. Any newspaper will print tripe which
to the Witch-hunt would have been ignored. The Edinburgh
News prints an article "DABBLING IN EVIL" Charles R.
, the president of the Paisley branch of the evangelical
IS HOPE movement claims he used to be a professional
in the U.S.A. and he was brought to Astrology through
of Ouija Boards yawn, yawn, yawn.
APRIL 27th 1989: Hull Star reports that CHILDWATCH IS TO GO INTERNATIONAL
and remarks that 'Several German Churches have agreed to
the operation' and that Dianne Core will return to SAN
(Sandi-Gallant's stomping ground) to sit on a panel made
of medical experts to discuss the question of child-abuse in
city. Core says " I manage to cope somehow. I don't
I do - by the grace of God I think".
MAY 3rds 1989: Daily Star carries front page headlines "GO TO
accompanied by a picture of Michael Aquino arriving in the
from America. The Star newspaper complains that the 'fiend'
has been brought
to the U.K. by Roger Cook , all expenses paid, to appear in

who says "It

aims to expose the link between Satanism and the
(Ed. What the Star
didn't mention is that Aquino was falsely accused by a fundie preacher
in the U.S.A. He was investigated and found innocent. The Cook
Report was even worse. They used Aquino as 'proof' of the existence of
Satanic Abuse (they couldn't find a UK satanist to hit with the charge
and so imported Aquino to film) but they omitted to tell viewers that he
had actually been cleared BEFORE the programme was broadcast. Lies,
Lies, Lies, Lies. Lies and More Lies. The public are treated like fools.)
MAY 4th 1989: Fred Harrison does hatchet job in Daily Mirror
Michael Aquino (TOS praemonstrator) with allegations of Aquino
being investigated for child abuse. The piece is built around;
Guess Who? Rev Kev Logan, that's who.
MAY 3rd 1989: Jimmy Rocket a client of the S.A. from the
with connections in a U.N. Mission receives a reply from
Office to further underline the completely bogus nature
Dickens Witch-hunt. The Home Office letter reads " The Home
has no evidence of any link between child abuse and
...There are no plans to return to medieaval laws against sorcery."
MAY 5th 1989 : The Daily Mirror reports that Kevin Logan had
a group of young children (some even below school age)
closed doors in his Blackburn church in front of cameras
Cook Report. Logan said "Some of these youngsters
have been victims
of child abuse and Satanism is at the
I just don't believe that but in any
event I would have thought that an exorcism on small children was a form
of abuse in itself yes?
MAY 7th 1989: The Sunday Mirror carries interview with Dr
Drummond (psychiatrist) about Michael Aquinos arrival
U.S.A.. "This man will definitely petrify any one who is
of being possessed." Drummond says that many of her patients
their condition sparked by the horror films the Omen and The
"Sometimes it is possession by the Devil". Is it
not time that
the BMA ruled against such ridiculous outbursts from
professionals who allow their sectarian beliefs to interfere with
MAY 9th 1989: I write to Dianne Core again and ask her to confirm
or not Christian Fundamentalist literature was being
with Childwatch literature. She responds with a
' I am in receipt of your letter and a reply will
from our solicitors, God Bless,'. I haven't heard
from her since.
MAY 14th 1989: "WE HUNT DOWN THE DEVIL'S DISCIPLES" . News of
World runs story on David Austen and several other members of
of Set. Allegations and downright fantasy are mixed in a
which implicates three of the TOS members in
lose their jobs and one is sent a bomb through
the post which
is disconnected but has a note attached "the next
time you won't
hear the bang".
MAY 17th 1989: "PLIGHT OF THE DEVIL CHILDREN" Western Daily
print another load of codswallop from Audrey Harper under
young victims of sex abuse in Britain's New Wave
this article we learn that Harper was a former Barnado's
Also interviewed in the article are Guess Who? Maureen
Davies and Dianne Core. The article is illustrated with a
a standing robed figure reading from a book and
holding a sword
at the shoulder of a hooded kneeling figure. The
very same stock provocative photograph
which was used by John
Merry in his article for Bella Magazine
about Lee & Janet
James. Within the spate of publicity supporting
allegations it should be noted that NOT ONE of
has bothered to ask for PROOF. The reason why
is obvious; why
spoil a good story with facts.
MAY 18th 1989 The Home Office acknowledges receipt of their
of THE OCCULT CENSUS RESULTS which I posted to
them; ' which has been read with interest'
and filed for future reference.
Unlike Dickens Dossiers, when I promise to do something it gets done.
MAY 18th 1989: The Daily Mirror disregards Aquino's letter of complaint
about his unfair treatment and publishes
a follow on article
linking Satanism with child abuse and featuring
story of hearsay about a young boy whilst again
repeating the libellous allegations of child abuse made
Aquino by fundamentalists. The article written by FRED
Includes the by now well known claims and quotes from
she goes on to complain that she has been gagged by
Social Services who have applied for court orders
to stop anyone
from pressing the boy about occult connections. The Social
obviously realise that whatever the boy has suffered in
of sexual abuse any further use of his case by the
might become abuse to him personally. Included in
this awful write-up
is some really flimsy piece of fabrication
concerning how an amusement
arcade in Hornsea, a small Humberside
Coastal resort (a more unlikely place for a coterie of Satanists would be hard to find) is used as a meeting
place. A photograph of the
amusement arcade is shown. Postscript: According to Humberside police
Core completely undermined their investigation by showing the boy
photographs of one of their suspects which meant they had to drop the
prosecution. This was 'ordinary' abuse,not Satanic Abuse and
the Social Services said Core had repetitively interviewed the boy
putting him under stress. The court order to ban her from doing so was
taken in his own interests and was not a 'gag'. Core and Dickens
tried to pass this off as a cover-up. Dickens demanded an
investigation into Humberside police's conclusions. It took 18
months and cost nearly £2 Million pounds. It confirmed the original
criticisms of Humberside police against Core.
MAY 21 1989: The Mirror Hack Fred Harrison again continues to hype
support for witchcraft related child-abuse allegations in
Sunday Mirror with another conglomeration of heresay
interviews with Maureen Davies Reverend Robert Law
"There is no
doubt that satanic worship takes place all over
have spoken to doctors, police officers and social workers
have investigated this evil practice aand the evidence is
there." Then Harrison goes on to reveal that 'Samantha' the
13 year old victim of satanic child abuse was raped to
foetuses which were aborted and she was subsequently made to
the foetuses. This only came to light after her mother
her burying one of them and called in the police. The
of these people is amazing. I mean, what was the
to say; it's my first child but please don't send my
boyfriend to prison'
or perhaps, 'this bastard has ruined my life I want
him nailed to the floor' ? This kind of 'foetuses for
sacrifice' allegation is now epidemic
because such allegations are
difficult (though not impossible) to disprove, whereas
of murder of a person with a registered birth can be
checked quickly. In the end the Crown prosecution service
dropped charges of rape and the
prosecution never got to court.
There is ALWAYS a fuller and more
obvious explanation to all of
these horror stories but ignorance
allows the hysteria to magnify.
Another of Harrisons examples
is the story of how a couples' baby
was allegedly chosen ,out of the blue, to be used in a satanic
sacrifice. The police
were sent a letter telling them this
and so they visited the family
who were frightened out of their
wits. Shortly afterwards a John
Burgen pentecostal minister turns
up; he had 'heard about the
sacrifice threat independently" and
stayed the night to save the
baby for Jesus.
MAY 21st 1989: The Sunday Sport trashpaper has double page
of interview with David Austen and background details
Cook Report. We learn that Cook " exposes an entire
practise witchcraft coupled with sordid sex acts." This
is a reference
to the Nottinghamshire case and reveals that Cook
to use discredited evidence in his report. We learn that the
Report has been temporarily shelved but that the cook
horrific Satan special will STILL be shown but at a later
and that Cook is 'furious' over it being
MAY 22nd 1989: The Home office , with whom I have been in
contact for many months replies to my letter asking
them to take
some action to stop the anti-witchcraft lies by
writing to the
IBA and BBC and making an official statement that, as they previously
told me, the HO has no
evidence that the allegations are
true. They reply " In view
of the constitutional
independence of the broadcasting authorities
this would not be
something I COULD PROPERLY DO. .. MINISTERS AND CIVIL SERVANTS
HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO INTERVENE IN THE DAY TO
DAY AFFAIRS OF THE BROADCASTING AUTHORITIES.
MAY 22nd 1989:The Telegraph reports in TWO SENTENCES that a 56
old Halesowen Magistrate was remanded charged (along with
man) with procuring males under age 21 to commit acts of
indecency. Consider what space would have been used if an
had been arraigned?
MAY 24th 1989: Daily Star reports "KIDS SAW BABY BEING
TO SATAN' and reveals that Nottinghamshire SOCIAL
that the corrupted kids were forced into cannibalism
to terrifying rituals by the sect. The sickening
child abuse has been compiled by two investigators
who claim they
and their families have been threatened.
'Detectives in Nottingham
have investigated these claims
TWICE but say they can't back
them up.' One of the social
workers is JUDITH DAWSON (remember
her?). She and her colleague CHRISTINE JOHNSTONE the
Worker's Team Leader say the youngsters, witnessed. a
sacrificing a baby born after a caesarean. A boy being
on a cross with pins through his hands and feet.A man
a sheep with his bare hands and passing its blood
around in a
bizarre communion and the discarding of dead babies
polythene bags. The children some under eight,
of ghouls and witches and a man carrying goat horns into a darkened
room to select the night's victim.
(Ed: This was the Broxtowe SRA case, the first in which SRA
'indicators' imported from the U.S.A. were used in repetitive questioning
over long periods of time to force kids into giving the answers that
prejudice social workers wanted in the first place. Putting words
into a kids mouth was the key method social workers used to change a
regular case of abuse into an SRA case. After Rochdale and Orkney
cases folded new rules were imposed that stopped social workers doing
this questioning. The result was that claimed cases of SRA involving
children stopped happening and the SRA hunters had to move on to putting
fantasies into the minds of adults during Recovered Memory sessions.
A detailed inquiry concluded that there was absolutely NO Satanic Abuse
or occult connections in the Broxtowe case but you'd never know it from
the writings of hacks like the above )
MAY 26th 1989: The Hornsea Gazette investigating the
concerning the amusement arcade featured in The Daily
earlier report carries an article which includes a denial
by the police
that any such connection existed. They say "ANY ALLEGATIONS
BLACK MAGIC IN THE HUMBERSIDE POLICE AREA HAVE BEEN
INVESTIGATED. IF THERE IS ANY BLACK MAGICK WE DON'T
IT". This rather pulls the rug from under Core's
13 month campaign
but mainsream media ignore it and bump along
regardless. The article also mentions
that The Cook Report
stormtroopered their way into the amusement
arcade shortly before
the Daily Mail report was printed, much
to the astonishment of the innocent owner.
MAY 27th 1989: Psychic News reports that a firm of Christian
in Crawley has joined a fight to stop 'an occult shop'
in the town. The firm, Lewis and Dick refused to say
solicitors would give the campaign against the shop
advice but Eric Bardell spokesperson, did say:
to sexual perversion just as soft drugs lead to hard drugs. In
same way we know from experience that there are forces at
the occult realm which can, and generally do drag people
deeper". Do they? Seen it have you? Bigotry is SO
certain. Gallant Core's and Davis are succeeding. Now more
and more Christians have been primed to oppose any New Age centres
regardless of logic or the facts.
MAY 31st 1989: Daily telegraph reports "CHILD SEX OFFENDER
AS BMA'S ADVISER ON ABUSE" in a two column piece which
that John Hopkins the assistant secretary to the BMA
dealing with child care and child abuse had been jailed for
sex offences during NOVEMBER of 1988. AMAZING. Hopkins
prosecuted and sentenced during a period of intense
about spurious allegations of occult-related child
a real case like this was swept under the carpet. No
RSM didn't want to talk to me about such controversial
the REACHOUT conference.
JUNE 23rd 1989: Daily Star reports SATAN SQUAD full page
about a Los Angeles Detective sergeant Randy Emon who is
on replicating the attention Sandi Gallant has achieved
press. Now, the Child-sex abuse bogey has played itself
and the new buzz-word is OCCULT CRIME. Emon,
revealing his fundamentalist
background says "Satan is not the
type to come quietly" and "I
have friends praying for me all the time". Later Emon says of
patch of bad luck whiche he attributed to some kind of
curse. "I only got over it by
praying". Later (December 1992) in an interview with
Martin Bashir (In Satan's Name?', Panorama ) Randy Emon retracts all of
his earlier allegations and admits that though he WANTED the stories of
SRA to be true and searched for two years to discover it, there is
absolutely no evidence. He says the stories are false and points the
finger at fundamentalist Christians who make them up!
(Ed: Indeed MANY of the evangelical leaders and activists who got
caught up in the 1990 Satan Scare eventually realised that it was driven
solely by self-generated hysteria and recanted. Most of the
fundamentalist footsoldiers backed off when the media began actually
demanding proof to back up their heinous allegations. Maureen Davies
activities and misrepresentations were exposed by BBC Wales (Week in
Week out) and they proved how mentally fragile people were manipulated
by Reachout's activists, Logan, Harper, Davies were at hand when poor Caroline Marchant who was being groomed by them as a
'star SRA witness' killed herself in a Reachout 'safe-house'. The BBC also featured another woman who was
virtually kidnapped from a mental hospital and kept in a Reachout
'safehouse' away from her family to be 'saved' from Satanism. What
Reachout did was truly appalling and as far as we are concerned they
never saved one child from harm. Click on the image below to see a video of it)

30 YEARS OF RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION THAT SHAMES BRITAIN
The SATAN MYTH is Back ! A new generation of Jesus Freaks are on the Satanic Abuse warpath, re-ignited by the
evils of social-media and the ease with which rumour can be presented as fact to
the Mob Mind. The SAFF expose the psychopathology of
ignorant self-appointed witch-hunters; how and why they lie to try to
persuade themselves, and dim politicians, that Witches and Satanists abuse kids as
part of their ceremonies. We show how the SRAmyth has diminished the greatest country in the world.
You will be shocked as we unearth the secrets of the mediaeval mind-set which is infecting MILLIONS of people in Britain.
- Geoffrey Dickens granddaughter vows to get even on SRA.
- Mad claims against living MPs.
- A False allegation Factory. Hundreds of Millions wasted.
- Untruths that have stopped the police catching real child abusers.
- Lies used as a smokescreen to allow priestly abusers to escape.
- Fraud in the child-protection industry on a massive scale.
- Media complicity in fake news for big money.
- And a conspiracy of religious extremists within the heart of democracy itself pulling the strings of the population.
SAFF was started in 1988 to counter `hysterical
allegations made during the Satanic Panic. SAFF''s first investigations
proved that the source of the wild allegations and apocryphal rumours
of SRA were caused not by the discovery of cases but by false stories
put out by grass-roots religious fanatics whose paranoia had been
worked-up by Christian leaders from the U.S. and Europe.
These Christian leaders inaugurated an initiative called 'The Decade of Evangelism' in the last years of the 20th century. Some big names put their stamp on the Decade of Evangelism,
including Billy Graham and the Assemblies of God which had created the
Christian TV Ministries which put the Religious Right into power in the
U.S. in the 1980s.
Their intention was to shock hum-drum
Christians into action to save their own and others' souls
prior to the Second Coming of Jesus'; and this is why:
The Bible predicted that in
the 'Tribulations' just prior to the predicted Second Coming' Satan would remanifest
to fight a last battle in which pious Christians could prove their
faith by battling with evil. The SRAmyth is simply self-fulfilling prophecy.
A quick look into history repetitively confirms a predictable surge in
Fundamentalist activity at the end of any century but the year 2000 was
even more important to evangelists as it was a Millennium, two thousand
years since the birth of Jesus and an important biblical timing.
So, they expected the End Of The World at this time more than any other and made extra efforts in the build
up . The completely unnecessary panic surrounding the Millennium computer Bug where
planes were supposed to crash out of the sky at midnight on 31st
December 1999, was a spin-off Doomsday scenario which now looks silly
but which was thought terrifyingly real at the time.
general media, government, police and other commentators resisted SAFF
expertise about the source of these batty claims of a world-wide
secret network of Satanists sacrificing thousands of children every
year. They pointed to self-declared 'victims' of SRA like Audrey
Harper. Was she not 'proof' of it happening? Didn't she say she was there when it happened?
simply couldn't accept that 'good Christians' could so blatantly
fantisise about SRA on one hand, whilst secretly working in league with
fundamentalists with the other. They controlled the national debate
so that MPs and other
influential people fell into it without knowing that they were
taking part, not in a campaign to save children from harm, but a
Christian missionary outreach to suppress Paganism and other new
religious movements using , literally, mediaeval demonology to do so.
Like many people today, the authorities had not seen the difference between
the mass of ordinary devout Christians and a cadre of Fundamentalist
religious extremists who had hijacked the Christian Faith. A
Christian Fundamentalist is someone who overrides and replaces the
teachings of the
Orthodox Church and, consciously or not, misuses the Bible to suit their
personal psychological needs. Very often the psychology of many
such people borders on mental illness, megalomania and delusion.
The story of how freestyle
fundamentalists created the Satan Myth has never before been told but
the SAFF will explain in detail the sequence of events which created a
anti-social conflict within our society which did great harm in the
1990s and which is still operating today three decades
The Satanic Panic wasted an estimated £300 million pounds
worth of taxpayers money and misdirected major police, social services
and government resources over the past three decades. It destroyed
the lives of thousands of innocent people. What is worse, it
redirected resources from catching real child abusers into chasing
phantom Satanists. More children were abused because of the false
SRA claims, not less. It was the biggest hoax of the 20th century,
and it is still causing problems today in the 21st.
No better overview of the hysteria of those days can be seen than in the private diary of the owner of the Sorcerer's Apprentice Bookshop (see
Timeline in the leftmost column) who was singled out for the most blatant persecution.
Not because he had actually done anything wrong, but simply because he
was being successful at freeing up people's minds and offering religious
The first Satanic Panic was essentially a campaign of sectarian hatred disguised as
child-protection. This was proven by Geoffrey Dickens', the
MP and lay-preacher who was at the head of the Crusade on SRA in the UK, who caused a nationwide outrage
with false accusations about witches / pagans abusing, killing and eating children and then,
on the back of this, attempted to force a bill through parliament to outlaw
witchcraft and paganism. He originally deceitfully promised witches / pagans that
his new law would not harm them and that Pagans had nothing to
fear. This was a lie and you can see the man speaking that lie here: Eventually his real intention was made clear in an American newspaper article when he was quoted as saying
'These are extremely devious people...we must bring in new laws to wipe witches off the face of the earth'.
That statement could have come right out of the ecclesiastical courts of the 15c
witch-hunts, because, in fact, that is what the Satanic Panic was, a
plain and simple witch hunt. Of course this sentiment chimed
with his main
audience, other intolerant Christian fundamentalists. So when you
hear someone assert that Geoffrey Dickens was a hero in
child-protection, this is what
they mean. A hero for doing God's Work. His sectarian attempts to
Witchcraft/Paganism are lauded because Christian fundamentalists see
Paganism as their ultimate enemy. The religion of Paganism pre-dates
Christianity and therefore by its very existence
casts doubt upon its doctrines. A doubt which fundies cannot allow
to exist and so they typify the Oldest World Religion as 'Satanic'.
Withcraft / Paganism holds Entirely Separate Beliefs To Satanism.
Generally people do not know that witchcraft/paganism and Satanism have nothing to do with each other. This
is because fundamentalists consistenty and purposefully confuse the two distinct
Witchcraft/Paganism is the prehistoric religion of Britain and most other continents.
The complex Pagan Fylfot cross symbol was carved into rocks in the UK by
original Witches / Pagans 3,000 years before Christianity reached these
shores. There is another rock carving exactly like it in Mycene in
Greece which proves the universal existence of Paganism across the world
in prehistoric times.
Pagan stone circles / temples were established 12,000 years ago (e.g.
Gobelkli Tepe) long before Agriculture was invented.
Witchcraft/Paganism was universal in the
ancient world and humanity evolved and thrived under it long
before the Christian church came along. You can see what questions
this creates for modern day fundies. The Church has
historically always tried to discredit its opponents with black
propaganda. For instance the 'debauchery' of Babylon has become a fixed
idea in the minds of billions of people yet Hammurabi, the pagan King of
Babylon, was so far-sighted and wise that he invented and had cut in
stone the very first articles of law which civilised mankind, and from
which our laws today descended. These laws were very human and very
balanced and fair, yet the Babylonian civilisation has been disrespected
and misrepresented in our history books ('The Whore of Babylon') for
thousands of years, so that YOU don't ever get to see and read the truth
about how Paganism is a foundation stone of our culture.
Pagan brilliance underpins our entire society.
Original witchcraft/paganism has contributed uniquely to the culture
and traditions of the British Isles. Even our days of the week are named
after Pagan gods .
Almost all church ceremonies have their origins in Pagan rites (e.g.
today's Easter Festival comes from the Celtic Goddess Eostre
The first religious artists and musicians were Pagan.
The first natural healers were Pagans.
Pagans invented and developed many things we take for granted, industry,
metallurgy, boat-building etc. All the
crucial things for mankind to evolve.
Paganism and witchcraft has done good throughout humankind's history,
and is doing good today, but you would never know it if you listened to
the fundies. The bottom line is this:
There is no devil/satan figure in the Witchcraft / Pagan pantheon,
they simply don't believe in a devil so why would they 'sacrifice
children' to it?
Satanism on the other hand is a Christian invention.
'Satanic' was a term employed by the Church to define HERETICS and was
used against Jews and many other dissenters. Just look up The Synagogue of Satan. meme which has been used against Jews since the time Christianity was first inaugurated. Watch very carefully Lord John Mann, because a rise in anti-semitism is always a precursor of a hunt for Heretics.
So the bottom line is that to be a Satanist you have to be a lapsed Christian or a Jew, NOT a pagan. Satanism has nothing to do with Witches or Pagans.
If you want to know what modern witches / pagans actually do and how they think, you should read The Pagan Credo here,
and not listen to fundamentalists like Audrey Harper, or Vicky Ash and
John Wedger and the rest who will without exception fantasise all manner
about witchcraft which simply do not exist. That is why I know that
Audrey Harper's story of being present at a ceremony where a baby was
sacrificed is unbelievable. It is unbelievable because it is
untrue. The kind
of fundie fabrication which created the Satanic Panic in the first
place. The kind of rumour which has continually been cycled around
by troublemaking religious extremists throughout history. Do you know
that Britain was the first place to impose yellow stars on Jews, hundreds of years before the Nazis ever copied it? Such rumours regularly lead
to mobs killing Jews. 150 Jewish men, women and children were massacred
in one day here in York.
But Today Audrey is Passe, now there are new Fundie Fantisisers on the block taking up her mantle.
Today, three decades after Audrey did her worst in the 1990 Satanic
Panic, a new generation of people who are ignorant of the need to
protect freedom of thought and resist the dead hand of sectarian
censorship are having their minds twisted by the same lies.
Unbelievably a new wave of Christian fundamentalist agitators are on the
warpath making the very same false Satanic Abuse accusations as they
did in 1988. Why, they are even trying to use the very same cases
which were held up as proof then and utterly undermined by researchers
at the time. Perhaps they think the public has forgotten about them
and will suck the lies in again? Not with the SAFF here they
won't! See: SRA Book Breaches Human Rights here.
Even more astonishingly, one of these new SRA crusaders is the grand-daughter of Geoffrey
Dickens MP, the main fundie agitator who pushed the idea of Satanic
Ritual Abuse back in 1988! History is repeating itself through
ignorance of what happened last time!
Be under no illusion, these people are not
just well-meaning child-protectionists with whom you have something in
are linked to vindictive, sectarian vigilantes and
conspiracyloons. Their view of SRA is mediaeval and they appear to have little or no discernment. They talk
glibly about horrible imagined crimes using
false accusations and untruths whilst constantly condemning people they
have never met and do not know. We shall prove this below
show you the true happenings of the Satan Myth and how the
populace was so easily twisted into believing fantasy.
'They're Missionaries Jim But Not As We Know It'
The Three Blind Mice. (Jon
Wedger, Louise Dickens and Vicky Ash) have just posted their latest Youtube video
offering which we are going to take apart (below) to reveal their true intent. These
three well-meaning fundies epitomise the type of ill-informed people who caused the Satanic Panic the
first time around.
Louise Dickens is the granddaughter of
Geoffrey Dickens and has announced in this video that she is continuing
her grandfather's work against Witchcraft and the Occult. This is religious prejudice writ large, and just to prove it, the video ends with all three joining in a prayer for the help
of Jesus to save the souls of those who want to escape Witchcraft and the occult. Yet
this bout of arrogant spirituality will not exonerate them from the lies they just told about the SAFF in their potty video.
Neither will it wash away the stains of their rumour-mongering about
serving MPs. The bible clearly states that
false witnesses who pour out lies and anyone who stirs up conflict
within the community is an abomination to God. The bible also says
God HATES such people, ( Proverbs 6: verses 16-19 ) so it might be wise
for the Three Blind Mice to start with praying for their own souls first.
The Historic Truth about How and Why the SAFF was Started.
This video put out by the Three Blind Mice is full of
lies, inuendo, rumour and falsehoods. To counter their lies we
must define what the SAFF is and does so that the
misdirections of Jon Wedger about the SAFF and the outbursts of Louise
Dickens are shown to be LIES. Remember, if we can find just
ONE untruth in this video then you must check everything these people
say. We found DOZENS of errors and untruths so will outline them
hereunder for you here, but meantime here's the true history and origins of the SAFF.
The SAFF was started in 1988 by the owner of the
Sorcerer's Apprentice Esoteric Bookshop in Leeds after he was unjustly
persecuted by a cadre of Christian fundamentalist troublemakers whose
actions shamed the name of Jesus. The owner of the bookshop
was NOT a Satanist and never has been, he was a mystic brought up in a
loving Chistian family who saw spiritual parallels across all the
ancient religions and which taught him liberal thought and empathy for others.
His sole purpose in running the S.A. was to provide information right
across the rainbow of comparative religions and ancient
philosophies. He saw how each had influenced the other throughout
history. For example, the story of Jesus' ecstasy on the Cross is an
almost direct lift from the rites of the Dionysian Mysteries, traced
back to the Minoan Civilisation 3,000 years BC; as is the use of wine in
the Mass. A parallel Christ Cult was Roman Mithraism descending from
Zorostrianism, (the oldest continuous religious belief in the world).
Mithraism and Christianity ran parallel in Ancient Rome, for a time and
His range of books included many Christian classics such as the
Dark Night of The Soul, (St John of The Cross) and classical Helenistic
works in his stock of 3,000 titles. He figured that the best way
of finding a common denominator to avoid the sectarian hatred which had
blighted religious freedom for hundreds of years, ( particularly in
Northern Ireland, where the Catholic vs Protestant conflict was
unnecessarily killing innocent people at the time he opened the S.A. in 1975) ,
was for all philosophies to be seen side by side and compared. A
book is not a deadly thing. One can read it, take from it what one
wants, and then put it down. The idea was to provide information
across the board. Only those who wanted to monopolise the minds of mankind could object to such an ambition.
The bookshop was started in 1975 and for thirteen
years his business thrived without any criticism whatsoever. He is
on good terms with the local police, neighbours, and politicians.
Indeed at that time he was
a go-to for local and national media who wanted insight into the New
Age and he welcomed Media interest. Customers came to see him from all corners of the
world. He ended up servicing 40,000 regular clients across the
globe. He expanded into publishing rare works on spirituality and
magic. He appeared on dozens of TV and radio programmes talking expertly
on all aspects of the occult and ancient religions and acting as a
go-between to assuage any misunderstandings between sects.
example he arranged with Janet Street-Porter to do the first ever
genuine programme on Neo-Paganism in the BBC TV 'A-Z of Belief' series in
February 1989. An S.A customer, Kevin Jay, volunteered to stand
surrounded by a jury panel of Christians and others who challenged him
on every facet of Neo-Paganism / Witchcraft. It went off admirably
and the panel was shocked at their previous misunderstandings about Witches and
Pagans. Everyone left as friends.
You can view some of these appearances on the S.A.'s Youtube
channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8yje7KAHEuex7bM8_z2Bfg where in answer to James Whale's question, 'Aren't Ouija Boards evil', he utters the immortal words
' Evil resides in the heart of Man, not in any board' . After
the dastardly things said about him over the past 30 years you can
marvel at how approachable, unthreatening and amenable the owner of the
is. You will find many other extracts from his work including
TV interviews which have since been posted on Youtube and Facebook by
long-standing clients, and mentions all over the net of how he
personally helped individual people through difficult times.
He also did good work with the United Nations Association on
Religious Rights, he liaised with the Commission for Racial Equality
definitions of religious belief and rights which enabled them to expand
their remit into protecting people from Religious Hatred, and he
Sacred Trees Trust eco-charity and many other projects. Including
writing his own series of manuals on the Ancient Wisdom, forgotten
techniques, spiritual healing, self-motivation, theurgy, ancient spells,
precognition and many other facets of the human mind. You can
some of these here http://www.sorcerers-apprentice.co.uk/occultls.htm and you will see that Satanism is notable by it's absence.
The Satanic Trigger Word
The SAFF's remit is to protect ALL minority religious beliefs and philosophies, including Satanism
and we do have a few Satanists as members, however the vast majority of
SAFF volunteers are not Satanists, the SAFF is NOT a Satanic
organisation, members are predominantly from the Pagan and Hermetic
schools of philosophy and right across the gamut of free-thinkers.
Mr Bray is not and has never been a Satanist. It is annoying to
have to continue to repeat these things time after time because when we
distance ourselves from the claim that we are Satanists it kinda gives
the fundies' claims that Satanists are up to no good, some credence,
when in actual fact there is no evidence that this is the case and no
current Satanic liturgy involves the biblical lies which today's fundies
are trying to pin on them. The religious rights of satanists are
exactly the same as the religious rights of everyone else, no more, no
The Fundies move in for the Kill
it was this very success in trying to bring Orthodox religions together
that caused enmity to rise against Mr Bray in the cadre of Christian
Fundamentalists that had been jealously watching him from
afar. When he opened a second shop, Astonishing Books!
at Hyde Park Corner in Leeds they started a concerted campaign to shut him down. In the first week of opening a dog-collared
Vicar turned up and told the owner that he would be out of business in
six months. Local fundies then began a campaign of hatred.
This picture (right) was taken of some fundie protestors with a loud
hailer, spouting Holy Writ against the shop in January
1989. Ultimately in August 1989 fundamentalists of
ilk, in response to lies being insinuated about Mr Bray and SRA by
Geoffrey Dickens and others, those evil fundies resorted to firebombing Astonishing Books! and
burned it down.
Dickens has actually had the astounding cheek to falsely accuse the S.A.
of being a clearance house for child pornography and paedophiles. Yes
she actually wrote that abject lie. At least her grandfather hid
behind Parliamentary Privilege when he lied, his granddaughter is
completely irresponsible and will now be sued.
The 1989 Firebombing followed the despicable Cook Report on 'The Devil's
Work'. Now seen rightly as The Biggest Hoax in Tabloid TV Full story
here. http://tabloidtv.nfshost.com/ Such is the vehemence, ignorance and self-righteousness of Christian Fundamentalists.
Astonishing Books! reopened a week later after a quick clear-up, in a
war-time atmosphere, on tressle tables out of the delivery entrance and
with customers flocking to support the business. Of course he
rebuilt the S.A. and began trading again. You can read exactly
happened here: http://saff.nfshost.com/saburnda.htm
Mr Bray had thought that we lived in a free-country, with intelligent
people enjoying freedom of religion and freedom of thought. He was wrong
because In a range of over 3,000 titles on ALL subjects he had outrageously
included SIX books on Neo-Satanism. He sold far more books on
Christianity than he did on Satanism, yet the fundies would not
countenance the public having ANY insight into what Neo-Satanists
do. They saw those six, small, books
as some kind of crime and started a campaign to destroy him and his
business. To falsely accuse him of promoting Satanism above other
religions. A blow by blow account of what they did, and how
Geoffrey Dickens lead the Gang of Five (Dickens, Reverend Kevin
Logan, Maureen Davies, Audrey Harper and Dianne Core) who made it their
life's work to crush the S.A. And failed.
Harper and Logan were directors of a fundamentalist agitprop group
called Reachout Trust, they all had one aim in common, and worked in
unison but were always portrayed in media reports as independent
specialists. For example, Davies was portrayed as an expert in the
Occult, Logan was portrayed as the mouthpiece of the Church of England
and Audrey Harper was portrayed as an escapee of a baby-murdering
Witchcraft Coven. Had readers / viewers known they were all working for
the same undie
outfit and working up their stories together then their claims and
words would have had very little weight. Separately they seemed to
confirm that SRA was a threat to children.
Probably the best
illustration of this was when Harper, Logan, Davies and Core all
appeared together on The appalling The Time and The Place, (Border TV) 24th April 1990) for a studio debate about SRA with an invited audience They did not sit
next to each other but were spread out in the audience and each called
to 'witness' about SRA by the gullible Michael Scott, without viewers
being told that they were from the same group and working in concert.
Their planned strategy to close occult shops was clear when in
the space of three days ( 14- 17 July 1989) Maureen Davies was interviewed for Radio Leeds demanding the closing of The Sorcerer's Apprentice Bookshop whilst
mentioning the killing of children; and three days later appeared
prime mover in a church campaign in Gwent in South Wales, where she
opposed the opening of an 'occult centre' in
the town. Even though the centre did not actually exist, so she could
not have possibly known what it would sell, Davies trilled
the same disgusting false allegations about child abuse and murder.
In 1989, in response to the growing black propaganda against Alternative Beliefs Mr Bray inaugurated the SAFF (Sub-culture Alternatives Freedom
Foundation) to act as a dissemination point for research into
fundamentalist groups and their propaganda. Many customers became
members of the SAFF to fight for their religious rights. Within a few
months nearly a thousand had signed on and were doing sterling work to
combat the downright lies being put out by fundamentalist agitators about Witches / Pagans.
SAFF was probably THE key organisation which saved society from the worst
effects of the 1990 Satanic Panic. Without SAFF input, the errors
of the Rochdale and Orkney false SRA cases might not have been spotlighted and put
right before more innocent families had their lives destroyed.
It took six years or so to undermine the fantasies which had caused
the destruction of many families through glib and false accusations of
Satanic Ritual Child Abuse. By then the documentary evidence and
Research Files of the SAFF had grown to become a unique specialist
archive and a very valuable insight into how politics and religion
interface in the U.K.
Child Campaigners Hunting For Satanists under every Sofa
Today The Three Blind Mice claim that the Gang of Five did a good job for Jesus but did they?
Did they REALLY do the best for children?
No they did not, what they did was emphatically NOT in the best
interests of children and only a fool would say otherwise.
In the tragic Rochdale and Orkney cases children were ripped from the arms of their loving parents in dawn-raids and were kept imprisoned from them for years, in one instance one innocent child spent SIX YEARS
in local authority care! Every claimed case of SRA during that
period meant children being kidnapped from their innocent parents,
usually in terrifyng infamous Dawn Raids which shamed the legal system
of the UK. and caused an outcry across the country. All created by the same glib suspicions of Satanic Abuse by
fundamentalist troublemakers. Later, media investigations claimed they found Reachout Trust had input into Rochdale and Orkney.
Whilst distraught parents robbed of their children had to spend years
fighting the inertia of the legal system to get back their children, the
social work mafia used every trick in the book to stop anyone seeing
their errors, including banning parents from even visiting their kids AT
ALL, and blocking legal access to the disclosure reports on which
claims of SRA were being made.
When the media complained to the
evil social services they lied and said that the children feared going
back to their parents! It took the combined resources of the Daily
and Sunday Mail newspapers to break this Stalinist plot to kidnap
children from innocent parents, it was they who challenged court
injunctions at enormous expense to force the truth out. When they got the documents they saw that there was absolutely NO evidence of any SRA at all.
Yes, Geoffrey Dickens did a good job for those children didn't
The Rochdale case first hit the headlines in August
When asked about it in an interview with the Rochdale Observer,
on 7th August 1990, Dickens CONFIRMED the case and exaggerated the
incidence of Satanism in the locality to add weight to the
claims. I bet the TWENTY poor children removed from their loving
parents by strangers in the middle of the night were very grateful for
Geoffrey Dickens' attempts at do-gooding.
And whilst all this torture of small children was going on Louise
Dickens, his granddaughter, was having a lovely charmed childhood, as
she remarks in the Three Blind Mice video, without a clue of the
disastrous effects that her bigoted grandfather was causing in other
families around the country.
In fact NOT ONE CASE that
Geoffrey Dickens promoted as SRA actually turned out to be true. NOT ONE.
Not a single one in 30 years.
the SRAhunters kept these poor kids locked up for years,
eventually at age 16 they HAD to let them go by law and when they did you
can see what the children themselves had to say about what they had to
suffer at the hands of self-righteous religious obsessives just because some
social worker or do-gooder glibly made false accusations of non-existent
Satanic Ritual Child Abuse in a similar vein to the allegations made in this new Three Blind Mice Video .
You can clearly see the effect this had on the poor kids in a clip on the SAFFutube
channel ( Click on image to view the video ) from the Real Story documentary series called 'When Satan Camne To Town'. One boy, now a teenager, looks as though he would never recover.
Louise Dickens and Jon Wedger have the effrontery to admonish the SAFF
for 'bullying' self-declared survivors of SRA. You must be joking Wedger. Where is your support for the child
survivors of false accusations of SRA?
narrates details of the torture which self-righteous Jesus freaks
caused to the
lives of seventeen innocent kids. Note that Geoffrey Dickens
on this false SRA case and never said he was sorry afterwards when it
was proven false. As far as I know he never ever apologised for
getting any of them wrong. Just like he refused to apologise to Dr
Birt, a GP whom he falsely accused of child-abuse in Parliament in
1986. Dickens only had the word of the mother of the child. He kept on
pushing. The Sun newspaper paid for a private prosecution. During the
trial Dr Birt was found not guilty. Instead of apologising Dickens
just shrugged his shoulders. Later when dealing with failed
SRA cases he just doubled-down on his SRA
wanted to protect children, he claimed, but turned a blind eye to those
Rochdale kids who disproved his own bigoted ideas about SRA. You
didn't see Dickens fighting the local authority to let a mother get her
kids back. Instead he insisted that the case WAS a case of SRA and the
social workers had it right. By their actions are they knowest!
Dickens was an evil man because SAFF were telling him he had it wrong
and he wouldn't listen, just like his granddaughter Louise Dickens is
ignoring our evidence today yet perpetrating the same lies. The Sins of
During the two year period when Dickens was on the warpath fronting lewd
SRA claims from the Gang of Five, Eighty Six innocent children were caught up in the hysteria that Geoffrey Dickens had caused.
Did you hear that Louise? 86 children had their lives
trashed for no good reason other than your grandfather's religious
Not only were those children traumatised by being snatched from their
loving families but they were then subjected to the torture of continued
repeat questioning by social workers and therapists who instead of
treating these small children lovingly, force-questioned them,
literally, for hours on end in interrogations which filled their little heads
with the most disgusting and horrific images, in a bid to get them to
'confess' to having been Satanically Abused. This was institutional abuse
which will have altered and affected their entire life and personality.
The Gang of Five helped create this situation - that was 'Satanic'
for sure. No Wedger, Geoffrey Dickens was not a child-protection hero - he was a child-protection vandal and an ignoramus.
can see the twisted ideas and irrational statements the 'Satan Kids' were
forced to fantasise because it seeps out in the claims in the newspaper articles and
TV programmes which the Gang of Five were involved in at that
time. Every single one of the terrible claims of torture, talk of cages, caves,
spiders, rituals, killings, baby eating, ghosts and all the rest which made headlines, were a direct result
of fundie social workers priming children with leading questions about
death and horror and witches. Astonishingly in most disclosure sessions they even gave the kids
Devil and Witch Dolls to play with. What did they expect them to come up with?
This brain-washing of children to force them to
invent SRA fantasies formed a key feature of the Nottingham Broxtowe
case which was also proven false. You can see our analysis of that
including a blow-by-blow account from social services' files of
how Witch and Devil dolls were used to force them to talk about
Satanists (instead of things the kids might have naturally spoken about such as Bagpuss and Morph!) here: http://saff.nfshost.com/broxtowe.htm . Fiona Bruce's excellent When Satan Came To Town
documentary shows exactly how the social workers and therapists
brainwashed the kids using actual tape recordings of the sessions. When
you listen to these you will be incandescent. Those
self-righteous bigots have a stain on their
souls which will never be eradicated.
rationale behind fundamentalist Satan Hunters is that they are doing
gods work to save the children yet despite wall to wall publicity on SRA
for 30 years SAFF has shown that not one child has ever been 'saved
from 'satan' because
Satanic Ritual Child Abuse was a fiction. However, due to child
campaigners like Dickens children have been traumatised for life.
Geoffrey Dickens was Childwatch's
Parliamentary Representative. The group, started and run by Dianne Core provided
him with almost all his SRA claims and cases but she had never actually
found one herself, first-hand. In May 1989 she made banner
headlines with a Hull case she designated as 'Satanic' (Click image for a full-size copy).
Core was absolutely convinced that she had found her first
case of SRA. The police investigation was already ongoing
but after the Daily Mirror splashed the story the police reiterated
that they had found NO link with SRA in the case! The Mirror never corrected the impression they'd given their readers.
Core wouldn't let it go. She began visiting one teenage victim and
questioning him repeatedly but apparently overstepped the mark so
much that Hull social services took out an injunction to stop her
questioning the child and traumatising him. Core then claimed in
the press that
she was being 'gagged'. But why would Hull police gag her?
no VIPs involved, and there was no reason for them to cover anything up.
came the bombshell, the police said that Core had ruined their
entirely by showing a photograph of their main suspect to the
victim. This technical breach of the law meant the case would be
thrown out of court. They actually had to let the abuser go!
So rather than catch abusers, in this instance Core was allegedly
responsible for letting one off. You can click on the
images (right) to see full-size versions for a detailed read. In
particular how the astonishingly hysterical allegations of SRA in the
top one 'Black Magic Sex Peril Of Our Children' all came to
absolutely nothing in the end because they were simply a teenager's
invented replies to Core's nattering about SRA.
None of the claims
in the top story held out when the police investigated. There
were no claims of VIPs or
important people being involved in this case, (The current Westminster
VIP Abuse claims were created long after the Satanic Panic of the
1990s) so there was absolutely no
reason or motive for the police to hide or cover up
anything. They were mad at Core for 'ruining their
case'. The fact
is that the SRA part of the story was nonsense and a good early example
of Fake News. Every single SRA case Childwatch was involved in fell through in a similar way.
Hundreds of sensational headlines came to naught.
organisation for which Geoffrey Dickens had agreed to become their
Parliamentary Representative and which he worked very closely with to
hunt down Satanic
Abusers in the U.K, which had made the most certain allegations of
and cannibalism, simply could not find one. They never found
one. We haven't heard a peep out of Core for the past 30
years. But people like Jon
Wedger and Louise Dickens today still believe that SRA is real so are
still Chasing Satan in their Three Blind Mice video.
Perhaps the most important thing to realise is that the legacy of the
Gang of Five has permanently injected a fundie myth into this country
with literally hundreds of thousands of Christians believing it exists.
Nowhere is this better illustrated than in the fact that Geoffrey
Dickens' own granddaughter has been sucked in as a believer three decades later. In the
Three Blind Mice video she states that she has
contacted all Geoffrey's political friends and every single one of them
has dodged the issue. She implies this is some kind of
'conspiracy' to stop her getting at the Truth. But the truth is they
are family friends and don't want to tell her what a buffoon and idiot
her granddad was in pursuing the SRAmyth. They are trying to save her
emotional upset, and she's accusing them of conspiring to cover up a Satanic
The Gang Of Five, Where are they now?
So what happened to the Gang of Five since their 1990 claims of
4,000 children sacrificed by Satanists every year?
Davies' fundamentalist anti-occult crusade was exposed in the Daily
Telegraph in April 1991 as being a facade - although she had claimed to
have 'evidence' from children to convince the public about SRA she now
admitted that her informants were all adult victim-imposters. The
fundie-group which gave her some credence, Reachout Trust backtracked
about SRA and Davies hived off to start the Beacon Foundation
specialising in continuing to supply her discredited SRA information
on her own to other fundie groups. She's still prattling about SRA to
day, but nobody other than out and out fundies now listen, whereas in 1990 she
was actually teaching SRA at Bramshill Police College and indoctrinating
Social Workers in conferences and persuading MPs with the stupid idea
at lectures in the Houses of Parliament!
Several months later, in June 1991 the press turned on Dianne Core and began criticising her
previous SRA claims. The marked contrast between the endless
publicity which the Hull Daily Mail gave her when she started making SRA
claims in 1988 compared with the cutting in June 1991 can be
clearly seen from the two front pages below. The bubble had burst. This is what they said:
And still a year long nationwide hunt for Satan by police, social workers, thousands of fundie activists had not found a single case, not one shred of evidence.
- Our inquiries reveal that Dianne Core's actions:
- Prompted police to drop charges against suspected child abusers.
- Led to allegations of Satanic abuse against innocent p[eople who suffered arrest and questioning;
- Brought her into conflict with a High Court Judge following her contact with a boy appointed a Ward of Court.
- Linked her with an American group of right-wing Extremists, who sponsored her tour to U.S.A.
- Prompted social workers to take back into care children kept in a Childwatch 'safe' house.
In October 1991 the BBC Wales documentary series Week-In Week-Out
heavily criticised Maureen Davies and Kevin Logan for their part in
stoking the Satanic Panic and being a cause of the Rochdale case.
Logan was doorstepped about the tragic Caroline Marchant, an SRA victim
imposter who became their Star Witness. She was passed around the fundie
circuit but ended up
killing herself with an overdose in a Reachout 'safehouse' under the
care of Logan. Audrey Harper sat by her hospital bed in tears as
the poor girl expired.
They tried to say that she overdosed
because she was terrified that Satanists would find her, but an incontrovertible piece of Journalism by the Independent on
Sunday here, http://saff.nfshost.com/marchant.htm
proved conclusively that there were no Satanists. Caroline had made it
Caroline knew her own lies, why would she have taken an overdose if
weren't any Satanists coming to get her? The independent
conjectured that it was the stress of trying to keep up the pretence for
her fundie audience.
Week-in Week-out tried to interview Maureen Davies but she was
her head down so they doorstepped her at home. In contrast to her
in speaking to all and sundry when the SRA claims first started, she
refused to speak to BBC Wales and slammed the door on them. See
the doorstepping here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T_GvcaoJv4 Logan was doorstepped the same way but blustered with
excuses and probably for the only time in his constant media
appearances, never made any SRA allegations. He admitted that he had
taken Caroline's SRA claims at face value and had not checked a single one
So by the end of it all, every single claimed case of SRA
failed and every one of it's promoters was utterly discredited as the
fundamentalist agitators they were.
No children were ever 'saved' because the threat was imaginary; but
thousands of people had been vilely attacked, slandered and defamed
in a modern witch-hunt of astonishing proportions, the collateral damage
of which was traumatised children who had their childhood stolen from
them by do-gooders wielding sectarian hatred, like the Gang of Five.
Worse, because the Media wanted to cover up their complicity in
promoting insane ideas about Satanic Ritual Child Abuse they didn't
publicise the demise of their Star accusers, therefore the
lies about SRA from that period were left latent in the
minds of the masses with the utterly fraudulent idea that there was '
smoke without fire'. That somewhere some Satanist might actually
be killing and
eating babies. Shockingly, in 2020, thirty two years after the
SRA insanity was first floated, we're off again on the fundie
SRA merry-go-round with the latest crass offering from a new
generation of the Dickens Dimloe Dynasty:
The Gospel According to Three Blind Mice
Three blind mice, three blind mice,
See how they run, see how they run,
They all ran after the farmer's wife
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife
Did you ever see such a thing in your life,
As three blind mice?
After 30 years of amazing success in detecting,
repudiating and charting apocryphal rumour and religious panics
the SAFF is now well-known by most journalists and MPs. We warned
them about the SRA myth in 1988 and they didn't listen.
proved SAFF research and predictions absolutely on the button in three
decades of brilliant work on the social impact of religious hatred, will
they ignore us again? YES THEY WILL, and what this means
for YOU dear reader is another bout of false accusations,
shock-horror headlines, suicides, deaths and collatoral damage of
vulnerable children and adults.
Most people think you have to be in a position of political power to
affect history; that you have to be a Very Important Person with a high
degree of intelligence. In reality the great changes in history have
been turned on a sixpence by the most mundane, unaware and lacklustre
people imaginable. Often by people which the history books have entirely
forgotten. Underestimate the Influence of the Ignorant at your
Beware Parliamentarians Seeking a Cause
This SAFF webpage is an attempt to put down a marker, so that thinking people
can be brought up to date with this complex story and historians a few
decades hence have all the facts at their fingertips to see how our
government and police will fail us all yet again. Look at this:
In the Three Blind Mice
video tanscript below Jon Wedger discusses with Louise Dickens how they
can rope in British MPs for their loony witch-hunt. He mentions
Andrew Bridgen MP whom he is cultivating (Bridgen gave an exclusive
interview to Wedger's girlfriend Anna Brees, another fundie, recently) and they applaud
the work of Lord John Mann, whom Wedger implies is a colleague. They
mention Wilfred Wong (a long time fundamentalist agitator within the
corridors of Westminster) and regrets the loss of Tom Watson MP (who
mistakenly championed the convicted pervert Carl Beech's made-up
survivor stories and dropped out of politics in shame).
Wedger turns to Louise Dickens; 'How, can we get more support from people in parliament?' he says.
I dunno, maybe I'll get there one day and
finish it off eh? I bloody will! I've mentioned that
to my mother a number of times...
Her boast that she may take up the gauntlet of SRA in parliament isn't
just castles in the air. She spent some years as a Tory councillor in
Richmond (North Yorks) and nepotism in the Conservative party counts for
So here we have, right at the start, their clearly stated
intention of infecting democracy
with the old Satanic Abuse lies AGAIN. These sectarian
troublemakers have been enthused and motivated by the ease with
which rumour can be presented as fact on gossipy forums and in streamed
media to tens of thousands of like-minds. Within a few
minutes their live video below has 500 conspiracyloons watching
it! Five hundred people who will email and tweet the abject lies
they hear to another 1,000 people before the night is over. The
Three Blind Mice video is clear evidence of the wickedness and the
stupidity of the fundamentalist mindset. At first glance it looks
like a collection of the usual
fundie nonsense, yawn, but look closer, because the SAFF has skilfully
unpicked it to reveal the
REAL stories behind their statements. You will be astonished at what
Transcript of the Three Blind Mice Video
Three blind mice, three blind mice,
See how they run, see how they run,
Did you ever see such a thing in your life,
As three blind mice?
2:26 Jon Wedger sets out his stall and the 'story
so far' for his viewers. Main takeaway - Geoffrey Dickens is a
3:17 Geoffrey Dickens gave an SRA dossier to the Home Secretary but it
was covered up. This is actually untrue, see factual analysis below.
5:29 Wedger drags in the Jill Dando murder (absolutely no SRA
connection here) Michael Horgan, Cyril Smith and Jimmy Savile.
6:41 Peter Hayman and MI6. (absolutely no SRA connection here)
7:52 PIE and IICSA (absolutely no SRA connection here)
10:12 Wedger: Darren says, 'wealthy men beat them with sticks and sodomised them with a ritualistic orgy'.
Note the use of the biblical charge 'Sodomy' which of course was a crime
in the ecclesiastical courts. The truth is that 'Darren' made false
accusations to the police about Leon Brittan then bailed out of the
investigation retracting his story when he saw the way the wind was
blowing with 'Nick/Carl Beech', ( another SRA victim-imposter who
eventually got 18 years for perverting the course of justice). Why
Wedger would still want to mention Darren's case when he himself stopped
it is mystifying. Particularly as Darren had previously spent time in prison for a
bomb-hoax, extortion, making false 999 calls and committing criminal
damage. There could not be a more unreliable witness of anything, yet
Wedger believes it all, tells his audience it is real, they suck it in like idiots and Louise
Dickens and Vicky Ash tut-tut in the background, nodding in disgust at
something which never happened. (click on the images to get larger versions to read in detail)
12:50 Wedger: Holly Greig Myth & Robert Green. Green is a hero, like Geoffrey Dickens.
Green was a vicious liar who was imprisoned for criminally defaming a
Lord Provost. He also had his fingers in many other lie-pies including
the Christchurch School, Hampstead SRA claims . The Holly Greig case
is easy to disprove but fundies like Wedger simply won't believe the
facts. Here is the Scottish Herald's definitive exposing of the Holly Greig
case: https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/13062006.one-devastating-fantasy-the-impact-of-an-internet-scandal/ but the fundies simply will not let it go. There's always a 'cover-up' somewhere.
There was no SRA in the Holly Greig case.
13:29 Wedger: Talks about the great work of Chris Fay.
Fay was a convicted fraudster and class-war anarchist who popularised
the Dolphin Square / Elm Guest House scares which conflated rumours about
Politicians, Celebrities and other VIPs using Rent Boys and frequenting
a Gay Brothel in London. It was a kingpin of the Westminster VIP abuse claims but had nothing whatsoever to do with SRA . The claims and the list have been proved a hoax. See full story here: http://saff.nfshost.com/panoramavip.htm
13:39 Wedger: Geoffrey Dickens is marvellous, again. He
campaigned against Satanism and he also warned children about the
dangers of Halloween. (All three Blind Mice nod rapidly in unison)
Halloween is a Christian festival imposed upon an
ceremony of Samhain which honours ancestors. It was an attempt to try to
suppress the old Celtic Pagan Religion. The Celtic feast was
called Samhain and it is a PAGAN ceremony
and has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Satanism or Satanic
Abuse. There has never been a case of any child being harmed by
involvement with Halloween, they all have a really fun time, but every
year for the past four or five decades fundies on the make drag out
these Hallowen is Harmful lies because they think the popularity
of Halloween detracts from their Christian mesage. It is
unadulterated sectarian poison
with no basis in fact. Here's SAFF research on it: http://saff.nfshost.com/cofehalloweenscare.htm
And here's another stunning expose of how Key fundie players responsible for promoting The Satan Scare whom the Three Blind Mice will
sanctify in their video, were heavily involved in a push to ban
Halloween in concert with the Church of England by expanding the
Halloween is Harmful claims to full blown SRA lies about abduction and
killing children, in 2008. Yes that's right folks. The very same liars
who sold you the fictional Satan Myth in 1988, ten years later were
selling you the Halloween is Satanic lie. Read it and weep:
Unfortunatley for the Three Blind Mice SAFF
knows more about Geoffrey Dickens than they do. Actually Geoffrey
didn't campaign much against Halloween. We can find very
little other than the odd condemnation of
Halloween from him. He usually left it to Dianne Core to deal
with. Notice in this large article by Core (click on it for a larger copy
to read) there are dozens of silly reasons and unproven fundie rumours
about why parents shouldn't let their kids observe Halloween but there
is only one tiny mention of SRA where she admits that this may be just a
suspicion. As this cutting is dated October 1990 right in the midst of the
SRA hysteria it shows that Halloween was not a major theme in the original SRA claims and the Three Blind Mice are flogging a dead horse trying to link it with Satanic Practices. There was only
one SRA case in which Halloween featured and that was the Broxtowe case, (where a family Halloween party was held) eventually the case was
proven false for SRA so the Halloween party was just that. A
party. The Three Blind Mice
simply do not know what they are talking about but as long as it hammers
Witchcraft / Paganism in the minds of their dim audience why not spread
the lies huh? Just another indication of the type of rumour
mongering which constitutes 'evidence' to the tiny minds of the Three
14:21 Wedger: Harriet Harman backed PIE so did Margaret Hodge and Patricia Hewitt.
All slandered as quickly as that without one jot of factual evidence to back it up. The Three Blind Mice video is beginning to sound very much like the utterly false accusations occuring in the confabulated Helen G List which the SAFF first exposed here: http://saff.nfshost.com/colemanrains.htm and
which eventually worked it's way through to cause the government a
horrendous headache in the form of false allegations about Ted Heath and
VIP abuse in Westminster. The fall-out from that list,
fantasised by a mental patient, was the sole reason why the government
are still spending a hundred million pounds on the IICSA historic abuse inquiry
which has, in large part, been hijacked by conspiracyloons. Jon
Wedger strove to give 'evidence' to this inquiry in relation to his
allegations about child-prostitution when he was member of the
Metropolitan Police force. Which makes his next lie even
SAFF is a paedophile group run by Nigel Lee Oldfield NOT!
15:41 Geoffrey Dickens was attacked by a group
called SAFF a pro-satanist group ' very very bizarre', one of their
founding members is Nigel Lee Oldfield, a pro-paedophile activist, he
would actively harrass victims of abuse, in 2015 his home was attacked by
a 1,000 strong mob because he was shouting 'please bring me your
children'. He's a convicted paedophile. These groups were going out of
their way to class Geoffrey Dickens as a hogger of headlines and a
buffoon. yet the truth is this guy was a right house for all
whistleblowers true seekers and victims of abuse.
The only 'house' here is Wedger who, completely and
utterly without any evidence to prove it, slanders the SAFF with
lies. We do not know Nigel Lee Oldfield, he has never been a
member of the SAFF. He didn't found the SAFF, Mr Bray did that on his own and
we have outlined the true history of how and why it happened
above. Oldfield, whoever he is, has nothing whatsoever to do with the running
of the SAFF. The objective here is for Wedger to dishonestly
throw dirt onto the SAFF to stigmatise us as paedophiles or paedophile apologists.
16:41 Wedger: Over to you Vicky.
We are not paedophiles.
The SAFF has never supported
We have in fact undertaken crucial research to root
out and bring to justice thousands of paedophile priests over the
It is a criminal and dishonourable lie from Wedger, yet he must do something to avoid his followers
considering SAFF evidence as it clearly refutes almost every single thing he says.
Wedger perhaps thinks this lie will undermine the voluminous evidence SAFF has published over the
30 years in which we have been tracking this myth for the best benefit
society in general. Our research incontrovertibly shows that people like
him are conspiracyloons who will say anything to get attention. Even
to the extent of making downright lies for which he can produce not one
jot of evidence. His opinions therefore are untested, inaccurate, often
untrue and sometimes, as in the above, utter lies. SAFF demand
that he retracts that lie IMMEDIATELY. If he fails to do that then
other Christians should remember Thomas and think thrice before they
anything that comes out of this man's mouth in relation to SRA.
17:38 Vicky Ash: It is a privilege to sit with Geoffrey Dickens' granddaughter after hearing all you've said.
18:10 Wedger: Louise, Vicky knew your granddad, how did that come about?
18:12 Ash: I originally had support from Childwatch. Dianne Core was the
founder of Childwatch. She suggested I report my case to the police.
Geoffrey Dickens was my MP at the time so I got in touch with him. It
was shortly after that, in 1992, that he'd been asked to go on a
programme by Panorama called 'In The Name of Satan?'
18:51 Wedger: Can People watch this?
18:53 Ash: No. Nobody can find it.
Blind Mice do an eye-roll and shoulder shrug to camera, presumably
implying that there has been another cover up. I imagine the 500 other
loonies watching them do the same.
So by her own admission Vicky Ash says she got in touch with
Dianne Core a 'short time' before 1992. Let's say 1991. The bulk
of the publicity surrounding SRA occurred in 1988 and 1989. The bubble
burst in 1991 when the media turned on Core. What Ash is admitting
to here is that she didn't contact Core until after FOUR YEARS of
constant nationwide publicity about SRA. Why? SAFF
think that Ash's story of redemption from Satan was a product OF the SRA
myth itself and the heightened awareness of it by fundie churches
throughout the land.
Satanists threatened to Murder Me and then My Kids
18:56 Ash: Many people have looked for it (In Satan's Name') and I was actually warned
not to go on the programme because if I did I may get murdered and my
Wedger lets this astonishing statement pass without comment.
Vicky Ash tell the police about the murder threat?
WHO told her that she might get
WHO warned her not to go on the programme?
contribution to the programme that important?
Did it contain names and addresses or crucial
information that the Satanists did not want known?
If they wanted to
murder her to keep her quiet why would they then also want to murder
her kids after murdering her? It just doesn't make sense.
This is just typical fundie baloney designed to ellicit shock-horror
support from outraged listeners and brings into doubt every single thing Ash says about her supposed time as a Witch.
Let me translate Ash's words for you.
Some neurotic believer in her own SRAhunting survivor clique whose
tiny mind actually thinks that a pan-global elite of Satanists are
killing and eating 4,000 babies a year , has imagined a worst-case scenario and told
her fears to Ash who is repeating them to get kudos to a sold audience
of 500 other fundies.
How important was Vicky Ash's testimony on
the In the Name of Satan programme?
Did she reveal names and addresses and other important info?
Courtesy of the SAFF you shall found out in a second or two.
19:10 Louise Dickens: Was this James Whale?
(As you will see
later, Louise appears to have an obsession with James Whale)
Martin Bashir and the 'In The Name Of Satan?' Conspiracy.
19:20 Ash: It was Martin Bashir. It was Martin Bashir and originally
the programme was supposedly... we were asked to go on to help the social
workers erm they'd had a bad press over the Rochdale SRA case and the
Cleveland case. I did the filming, in fact, I think i did it
in your grandfathers' lounge, It was shortly after I'd done the filming
that Dianne Core rang me and said, it's not to help, they've actually
stitched you up. They're going to be ridiculing SRA. So I phoned up the
producer at the time and asked not to be put on the programme because
they had lied to me. When the programme went out they had many survivors
speaking out who were blacked out, (she means in silhouette) and then I
came on not blacked out, and again they didn't take me off the
programme, but I'm glad that I wasn't blacked out and the reason is that
I'm not ashamed, and I'm not afraid, because the truth sets you free,
and that's what I found as I've kept going on and the dots have been
joining, I've always told the truth and I will continue to tell the
truth, I've been dealing with this for the past 30 years and I've never
gone to it, it has always come to me..... but when I see now that there
has been cover-ups in the BBC , when I look at the Jimmy Savile, and all
the cover ups there, now I realise why there was a cover-up over the Panorama.
Unfortunately Ash is talking balderdash. You'll
have to forgive the transcript if it appears difficult to read because
she only finishes one sentence in every three she starts. Please
understand that we haven't left anything out, you can check this by
listening to the video using the link above. 21:39 Wedger: So to have someone like Geoffrey Dickens to champion this how did that make you feel?
how Martin Bashir is besmirched just as easily as the Three Blind Mice
besmirch the SAFF. Everyone who disagrees with them is somehow an
evil-doer. However, Bashir is a committed Christian, he is
currently the chief religious affairs correspondent at the
BBC. Bashir had no sectarian axe to grind whatsoever. His
documentary 'In the Name of Satan?' is not 'lost' nor has it been
hidden by an imagined conspiracy, the SAFF have a copy and have
put several extracts from it on our SAFFutube channel.
here shows Vicky Ash's actual contribution to the programme. She is
being interviewed by the 'marvellous' Geoffrey Dickens.
She spoke typical fundie rubbish about tunnels and pentagrams and
'cloaks' (Witches don't wear 'cloaks' by the way, they wear robes) and it lasted precisely 30 seconds.
It was drivel.
No names, no addresses, no locations, no details
of rites, nothing.
Why anyone would think Witches or Satanists would want to
her for talking such unspecific nonsense is a mystery until you realise
it's all about getting attention. The same kind of
she comes out with in the Three Blind Mice video. Yet the
impression given to 500 viewers by Jon Wedger is
that Vicky is some pathfinder in SRA who was in at the start and can
give an authoritative and detailed insight into the truth that SRA
exists. He thinks her 'evidence' outweights that of the SAFF and all
other detractors. In reality Vicky Ash really hasn't a clue, yet
she run her own Christian survivor group counselling other people about
SRA! The mind boggles at the pyramid selling of SRA by these
The critically well-received 'In the Name of Satan' was
an important watershed because, as a Christian insider Bashir was well
placed to get into the fundie sub-culture and call-out the despicable lies and inventions of the
fundamentalist wing of Christianity. He did so in spades,
including the 'confession' of the most prominent Cult Cop in the
USA (Randy Emon) A fundamentalist himself who initially believed
in the false SRA accusations of the late 1980s that Dickens and Audrey Harper espoused and which the Three
Blind Mice still believe in today. So much did Sgt Randy Emon
believe in SRA that he spent 2 years of frantic searching until he
realised it was utter fiction
and a waste of time. In this interview with Bashir he blames obsessive
fundamentalists for creating the myth. Watch Emon say exactly that in a crucial interview in
'In The Name of Satan' courtesy of the SAFF, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1x3BsTq0MM
In the very same documentary Martin Bashir interviewed the compulsive Christian Liar Laurel Rose Wilson whose book Satan's Underground sold
a million copies to eager fundies and will have undoubtedly been read by Ash and
Wedger. Saner Christians eventually proved incontrovertibly that Satan's Underground was complete and utter fiction!
21:40 Ash: He was marvellous with me and his heart was for children, and
that's why we are all sat here. Our hearts is for children and children
cannot speak for themselves, what you choose to do as an adult is a
choice. A child does not have a choice.
21:57: Louise Dickens: Or a voice, that was one of
granddad's huge things, every child deserves a voice. Even though I
didn't learn about the SRA and stuff until I was a lot older , even when
I kind of learned about Childwatch that he did and the campaign he did
with Nigel Benn, when I learned about all these things that was always
the core thing, every child deserves a voice.
22:25 Ash: Exactly.
22:26 Wedger: (to Louise Dickens) Can you tell us about your grandfather in a personal capacity?
22:27 Louise Dickens: recounts happy and idyllic childhood memories. ....
22:28 Louise Dickens: When I grew older and started googling
granddad..I was seeing, fifty, fifty, half these people really positive
and loving him and 'hats off awesome job' and then this over 50% were
going 'blundering buffoon he only wanted a headline' and I couldn't
figure out what had gone wrong. So, me being very much like my granddad, here I am guys!
don't think the population split 50-50 on Dickens, more like 90%
thought he was on the make. Most of his contemporaries in
parliament thought ill of him and other than the Tabloids who could get
him to say anything, the rest of the media consistently lampooned him.
History shows that the SAFF had it 100% right , Geoffrey Dickens
blundering Buffoon, the other MPs who worked with him in parliament
nicknamed him 'Bunter' and then 'Biffo' (Big
Ignorant Fool From Oldham) . He was always being ridiculed for silly
mistakes and making outrageous statements to get coverage in the press.
He would hijack any controversy and make himself look
foolish. In one instance he actually walked into the wrong
Commons lobby and
voted against his own Tory government! He was a dealer in
platitudes and epithets and spoke in cliches. Louise Dickens takes
his ilk may want to portray Dickens as some kind of martyr, but in
effect his career was largely self-serving promotion. The veteran
parliamentarian Walter Harrison in an early interview with the BBC said
that Dickens was manipulated by the media who prodded him to start many
of his 'crusades'.
10 Cases of SRA that went Wong.
23:56 Wedger: What Wilfred Wong says is , and a lot of people watch his interviews, and he .....
24:07 Louise Dickens: Yes, I really enjoyed those.
24:08 Wedger: Wilfred Wong, funnily enough, said, if you make enemies with the Satanists you are doing a good job.
24:15. Louise Dickens: Exactly!
24:16 Wedger: Wilfred Wong worked with your grandfather and shared
a platform with him in the 90s in parliament when your
grandfather spoke up about anti-semitism. So thank you Wilfred.
24:27 Louise Dickens: Yes I did read about that.
Wilfred Wong is a long-time fundamentalist
activist. He worked for David Alton managing the Christian group
Jubilee at Westminster in the 1990s. Alton supported the idea of SRA at
that time and wrote about it in his regular column in the Catholic
Universe newspaper. His intention was to start a Christian
Democratic Party to impose Holy Writ but it fell through.
SAFF research on Alton's evangelical activities and his support of SRA in the 1990s is here: http://saff.nfshost.com/goodsin.htm
24:28 Ash: And another thing I've always said
about satanism is if you want to be part of it then that's up to you
but we are a voice for the people who don't. We are a voice of the
people who actually don't want to be involved. We've heard Audrey
Harper we've heard Doreen Irvine, where people are lauding that they
can't get free once they are in, we want to be the voice of... actually
saying well you don't have to be in.
ducked out of public view after the SRA myth died a death and remained
relatively quiet until the past few years. He popped up again in
2014 when he started a group called CASRA (Committee Against Satanic
Ritual Abuse) . He had made connections with the
conspiracyloon crowd and published a paper in the Fresh Start Foundation
website claiming to have found 10 definite cases of Satanic Ritual
Abuse which were successfully prosecuted through UK courts. (click on
image to read) .
As soon as the SAFF saw this we realised that it was in
fact not new research but a copy of cases which had already been
disproven way back in 1991 when Tim Tate, the producer who made
the now utterly discredited Cook Report on SRA 'The Devil's Work'
(broadcast in 1989), wrote his terrible book, Children For The Devil, which was
later pulped for containing defamatory inaccuracies. Tate had
tried to float ten cases of SRA to prove his contention but that's not
what they were. The SAFF exposed them as counterfeit here http://saff.nfshost.com/tatebkli.htm
and our accurate research was picked up by the national media and
reproduced there as well as in Private Eye magazine and
Wong's re-telling of these 'cases' was lifted verbatim from Tate's book, in the same sequence exactly.
As soon as Wong published these false cases he seemed to have a meteoric
the Conspiracyloon circuit, giving interviews across the internet.
Just shows you how much fundies and conspiracyloons NEED the SRAmyth to
power their sectarian hate.
However, when the SAFF outed the fact that these cases had already been
disproved 30 years earlier, on our SAFFtweets twitter feed, the CASRA
website was taken down.
Nobody bothered to check
Wong's cases. All they wanted was to be able to insist that SRA
existed. Indeed in a spat on Twitter Louise Dickens, completely
oblivious to the actual history of the fake list, (she's actually quite oblivious to most facts about that period) sent the SAFF
a copy of it as 'proof' that her granddad was right about SRA!
What fools these people are. How easily they are misdirected.
24:54 Louise Dickens: (Missing the point) Yeah, you can just leave.
24:56 Ash: And it's faith over fear. And I say that every time.
25:04 Wedger: So your grandfather didn't have to look into this but he chose to.
25:06 Louise Dickens: Damn right, yeah, he's a man of justice.
Dickens was a man of justice? If you say it often enough
Louise someone might believe it but not anyone who lived through those
times. Louise Dickens obviously knows nothing about her
grandfather's rabble-rousing. This is Geoffrey's Justice:
Demanding that homosexuals who have AIDs should have their penises
tattooed as a warning, campaigning for all Gay priests to be banned from
the Church of England, wanting law abiding Pagans 'wiped off the face
of the earth' and supporting and condoning public hangings in Iran
saying they should happen here. I wonder if he also wanted gays to be
pushed off roofs to their deaths like they do in some ISIS states? What a just man your granddad
Geoffrey Dickens Was Murdered By Satanists
25:09 Wedger: But all of us, we have to pay a price, but it must
have been hard for your granny, they must have been frightened witless?
25:22 Louise Dickens: I can imagine so , we were really lucky,
when I was younger I didn't really understand but I know now that I have
started poking beasts over the kind of last six or so years, and both
my mum and my dad have been very very worried, but you don't get
anywhere sitting on your backside do you. Granddad had the gumption to
put his head above the parapet and I believe he will always look after
me. (smiles, wells-up and holds her heart) I believe he is with me,
26:12 Wedger: He probably brought us together today!
26:13 Louise Dickens: He probably did because we are two seconds from
his house and where he is, so I'm going to say hello to him after,
but he kinda braved it. So do I not owe him that to try to finish it
off because I think he was cut short, I do, and I've said that to you, I
think he was cut short and had an awful lot of unfinished business.
26:36 Wedger: I've spoken to someone who ran a charity and she
exposed what was going on in child abuse cover -ups and she said they
tried to poison me.
26:45. Louise Dickens: Yep!
26:46 Wedger: There's Karim Husterbart (?) who exposed the high level
Marc Dutroux, she said they tried to poison her with an anti-coagulant.
26:59 Louise Dickens: It's terrifying, absolutely terryfing.
just happened here in the Fundie mind-set. Did you see it
occurring? Together Wedger and Louise Dickens just confabulated an
out and out lie which I promise you, you will see in a few months
time as a fleshed-out full-blown claim by some conspiracyloon that
watches this video that Geoffrey Dickens was murdered by Satanists
because he was getting too close.
Lay you bets! Watch for it and weep! If you want to see how the fundies indoctrinate each other it is a classic example. But you'll need to completely ignore the fact that Geoffrey Dickens died from a long battle with Liver Cancer.
Burn the Witch! Burn the Witch!
27:00 Wedger: The question I think
people should ask is when you get people like Geoffrey Dickens going out
there and exposing people not just having sex with children but they're
whipping, beating, garroting and mutilating them, why are they being
attacked why are they being hindered by people like Leon Brittan who was
protected by Margaret Thatcher, why are they being attacked by groups
like SAFF, when the leader of it is a known paedophile and people are
listening to him and they're even backing what he is saying, why is this
group SAFF not just shut down, cos it's clear harrassment and he's been
harrassing victims of abuse this Nigel Oldfield, why do people listen
to it? The legacy of Geoffrey Dickens, not now some sort of society,
where they're going out with government backing hounding satanists and
hounding paedophiles and crushing them with the power and the mallet
(sic) of the law and you know, pulverising them, (Wedger is now in full flight, popping eyeballs, making hammering movements with his fist) why is this not happening, why are there no MPs with the balls , like Geoffrey, now in
parliament. How would you answer that:
28:05 Louise Dickens: I dunno, maybe I'll get there one day and
finish it off eh? I bloody will! I've mentioned that
to my mother a number of times but like I say they get worried.
Another downright lie from Wedger about the SAFF which has
done honourable work on behalf of victimised people in society for 30
years. He seems unable to understand that contesting and challenging
like his about innocent people is the duty of every citizen if we wish
to live in
a civilised society, and that for justice to function there has to be a
right of reply, particularly where absolutely disgusting accusations
are being made as he has done, from a position of bigotry and
moreso when those heinous accusations have absolutely no evidence at all to
The SAFF has never 'harrassed victims of abuse'. Challenging
untrue statements and demanding evidence from people who make heinous allegations is not 'harrassing victims of
abuse' and it is typical of the fundie mind-set to try that trick on to
demonise anyone who questions what conspiracyloons say.
have every sympathy with genuine victims, indeed, many of our number ARE
actual victims of abuse. So unlike Louise Dickens and Jon Wedger
we KNOW first hand what we are talking about and what we are talking
about is not denibgrating genuine victims of abuse by allowing fantasists
to diminish their suffering by mad tales of SRA torture. The SAFF
have worked with
various groups to help the victims of Priestly abuse which is quite
terrible. Our 30 years of highlighting Priestly Abuse to assist
the victims who could not be heard over the cacophony of lies about
SRA is a matter of record.
We have helped far more victims than Wedger or Louise could possibly
have done, but unlike
Wedger we are not gullible fools. The bottom line is
that for all the hullabaloo in 30 years not one case of Satanic Ritual
Abuse has been found. However, even if we allow for the acceptance of Wedger's few cases the fact remains that
SRA abuse would be such a phenomenally small percentage of ACTUAL abuse
in the U.K. that it is statistically insignificant, less than 1% , yet
SRA deprives 'regular' child-protection of funds that could go to
children who really are at risk from physical abuse and neglect.
Whilst Dickens and Wedger pound their bibles and shout from their
soapboxes real kids in situations of ordinary familial abuse are crying
out for help and don't get it. Just as they cried out for help to
stop THOUSANDS of Priestly Abusers who were getting away with repetitive
abuse and being covered up by their churches until the SAFF had the
guts to publish the Black Museum of Priestly Abuse in 1991
and push the mainstream media into looking into this evil. SAFF
statistics were the first to show that 3 new children every single week
will be sexually abused in the U.K. by holier-than-thou priests and
churchmen. Not only that but SAFF statistical research proved that
the children who are most vulnerable to abuse by churchmen are 8 year
old Boys. Week in, week out, year in, year out thousands of young
children across the world are suffering at the hands of perverted
churchmen. The cases are real. The prosecutions are real. Their
frequency is attested and brazen. Yet Louise
Dickens and Wedger are completely oblivious to that and spend their time
chasing Satanic Abusers which have never been found, and drivelling on
about how Jesus said to bring the children unto him. Don't accuse
the SAFF of being unsympathetic you lying ignoramuses, you know nothing
about our history and the many great things the SAFF has achieved whilst
you've been twiddling your fingers.
Get of your soapbox Wedger! Read these exclusive and unique
exposes of the REAL threat of abuse in Christian churches which the SAFF
has campaigned against longer than The Three Blind Mice have been complaining about SRA:
Black Museum of Priestly Abuse in 1991 The shocking blockbuster analysis which first exposed Priestly Abuse.
http://saff.nfshost.com/blackmus2.htm - A confirmation of the 1991 BlackMuseum's statistics updated in 1996, showing that the church was not heeding SAFF warnings.
: The Irish public Inquiry into thousands of abusing priests
which found the churches were complicit in covering up abusive priests
and then sending them to other parishes where they again abused small children.
: Where official investigations into the abusive excesses of priests in
Belgium found such a cesspit of child abuse and torture, including
links with Marc Dutroux. Wedger rightly slates Dutroux but completely
omits to mention that his abuses had nothing to do with SRA but were
connected to the Belgian church! Thick Wedger doesn't mention that
of course in his condemnation of the SAFF.
UK offical investigations into rings of abusive priests which the
Church of England turned a blind eye to and even tried to covered up but
the SAFF didn't allow that to happen and exposed their machinations.
Who the heck do you think you are dealing with here Wedger, you smug
idiot? The SAFF have
challenged thousands of self-styled victims of SRA over 30 years and the
sad fact is that almost all of them have turned out to be
'victim-imposters', like Carl Beech, who was accepted at face value by
Louise Dickens, Jon Wedger and many others in their circuit but turned
out himself to be a pervert who was jailed after admitting to child porn
and was then was
tried and sent down for a further 18 years for perverting the cause of
making false accusations of abuse about innocent people.
Good job the SAFF challenged him eh Louise? Did your 'toes curl'
when you found out what a 'monster' Beech was?
Wedger may think that
Geoffrey Dickens caught people torturing children in the appalling way he
describes above but the truth is that HE NEVER DID. Dickens'
campaign never caught ANYONE doing any of those things and it is
thoroughly dishonest to pretend otherwise to churchgoers who should be
warned of the REAL danger in their midst which Louise and Wedger rarely mention - child abusing priests.
Whether designed that way or not, tales of Satanic Ritual Abuse
are a smokescreen which protects thousands of child-abusing churchmen by
misdirecting child welfare crusaders away from abuse which is ACTUALLY
HAPPENING into wasting their time on a figment. Do Wedger, Dickens and
Ash realise the heart-rending repercussions of not getting it
right? Why are they not hunting down abusing churchmen instead of
insulting and lying about the SAFF?
Everything the SAFF says about Geoffrey Dickens is absolutely
true. We never make any statement without having documentary
evidence to back it up. As you have seen on this page we usually print
that documentation / evidence next to any statements to prove it.
Wedger and Louise Dickens may not like the truth if their Hero Geoffrey turns out to be a
liar and a cheat but that's the difficulty with the truth, it's the Truth. We are not attacking
Bunter for any reason other than to avoid his legacy of lies causing any
more harm to innocent children and families in the U.K.
Satanic Swing Murder Threat
28:18 Wedger: Now you mentioned an incident when you were playing outside on some rope swings.
28:22 Louise Dickens: Yes. at the back of Nanna and
Grandad's house they had a big bit of woodland and it had a beck running
through it and it was lovely. I have an older brother and younger
sister, we all chose a different coloured rope and we went out and made
rope swings in the garden, they were in the woods for ages. And we went
out one day and they'd all been cut down. (Wedger gives knowing nod to
camera) cut in half and there was just the coloured rope hanging. And we as
the kids were all whisked back into the house, our feet didn't touch the
floor, there was no explanation for it and like I was saying to you
earlier it was one of those weird things that was never explained,
that's probably why it stuck in my head and I remember it because I
thought, that was weird, why didn't we just get more rope?
29:10 Wedger: Yeah because the subtext is quite sinister.
29: 11 Louise Dickens: Now, if you look back, you think, how on
earth are you going to shut Geoffrey up, you'll threaten his grandkids
because we were his world. Yeah, the best way to shut him up if you're
not going to shut him up permanently, is threaten his grandchildren.
Another mammoth flight of fancy from two people who can't see the wood from the trees (forgive the pun).
1: A childhood memory recalled decades later.
2: Hanging Ropes
Frightened Adults :
Conclusion? Satanists cut down the swings as a
message that if Geoffrey didn't stop his campaign they would kill his
grandkids. What utter nonsense! There could be many hundreds
of different reasons why the swings were cut down. Maybe other kids
were playing on them and broke them? Maybe vandals did it?
Maybe squirrels gnawed through them? Maybe Louise's young memory
was faulty? Maybe the ropes were poor quality and rotted? Without a
forensic check on whether the ropes had been cut who would ever
know? And why are we wasting our time with this ridiculous debate when all
she had to do was ask Grandma Norma about the incident and find out for
sure what had happened?
During the 1990 panic Dickens awoke to find a large
Pentagram 'burned' into his back lawn. He reported it to the police and
the local newspaper covered it with associated claims of Satanic
Threats. It remained a mystery until about 10 years afterwards
man who was perusing the SAFF's Pliner Forum posted a message on a
thread talking about Dickens claims, saying
that, when he was a teenager he and his friends had got so sick of
seeing Geoffrey's constant pronouncements of Satanism in the media that
they got in through his back-garden and poured weed-killer on his lawn
pentagram shape as a jape. The jokers were not occultists, not
Satanists, not abusers, just unruly teenagers having a laugh, but that
worked-up by the press to indicate that Dickens was somehow under
threat and enshrined in the false history of SRA. The poser
thought it quite funny that his joke had become memorialised in history
as a Satanic Threat. One has to be very careful Louise about the reasons for
such stories before pronouncing a threat to murder three children which
never ever existed.
29:28 How do you feel Vicky that there isn't
someone like Geoffrey out there and the police have got this lacklustre
to investigate properly and you are standing up as such a lone voice
29:39 Ash: I believe that there are people in places of
power that do actually want to do something. I do. (laughs cynically). But it's
fear, it's always fear. And I have to say as a Christian that that's the
difference, until you come out of that place of fear, you will always
be saying, 'what's the cost, what's the cost' and that's coming back
that it is a sacrifice, it is that you have to think of the children,
you have to think, well just because I survived this, now I just get on
with my life. NO! Every time I hear a child crying, every time, I think,
well I was one of the ones who did survive, my heart breaks and I know
that Gods' heart breaks, 'suffer the little children to come unto
me', God's heart breaks for the children.
See how Ash, like many self-absorbed fundies, monopolises
the moral imperative. Only Christians can care for children.
As if the parents of all other religions are bad parents and do not
care for children. Or their religion means their children will somehow
be deprived or at risk. EVERY decent person cares for children. It
is a human instinct to care for children. Every religion cares
for its children Vicky, you don't have any more care for children than I
have, you just think you have.
30:33 Louise Dickens: Yes.
30:31 Ash: And that's the reason that we do what we do.
30:35 Wedger: We need to empower people that have been through what you've been through. How do we do that?
30:44 Ash: By showing them that, you know, that faith, overcomes fear.
30: 48 Louise Dickens: Yes.
30:50 Ash: and the more that you see with historical abuse cases that
people who are coming forward, it's a mighty army that arises, it is
fear that...the occult means hidden, you see the enemy fears exposure.
Once you expose him he loses the power, and that's what's happening.
31:06 Wedger: Would there be like spiritual threats put to these people that they'll come and get them.
31: 13: Ash. Well Absolutely.
31:15 Louise Dickens: Oh Yes all sorts of things like that!
Oh yes, all
Louise has proved that she knows hardly anything about Paganism,
Witchcraft and Satanism but is always ready to agree that whatever they
do it must be abusive, criminal and 'vile'. We'll show you how much
Louise knows when we get to Grandad's Voodoo Doll Curse.
31:16 Ash: I say it again and again and again, Satanism is a religion,
you are dealing with Witchcraft, We have African ministers that come
here who say witchcraft is very open in our country. You either go to
the church, the doctor or the witch-doctor. And here it is dressed in
suits and overalls. But witchcraft is still the same here.
31:37 Wedger: Well if you take countries like
Benin which is next to Nigeria and Ghana its 70% voodoo. So if you look
at our collective (on screen) were running at nearly 500 live views
which is incredible and we have, myself an ex Scotland Yard detective
and whistleblower and I was silenced and threatened and bullied for
speaking out about child prostitution and almost imprisoned. Nearly lost
my children and all sorts
Next to me you've got Louise here whose grandfather was really the
pioneer of exposing this on a parliamentary level and suffered as a
rseult of doing it and we've got Vicky who is a victim of satanic abuse
33:09 Since we've been working as a collective...it's almost on a daily basis that victims of SRA are coming forward.
Pizzagate and other Fundie Nonsense
33:14 Ash: Please, I just want to say, please that we are past, we
are absolutely past people saying it doesn't exist. There are convicted
cases. I've seen them myself. Watch the film Out of The Shadows, The
Pizzagate, hanging children on hooks. How do people. how are
people coming forward with the same stories all over the world?
People who have never even met. Please, we are past that. I understand
that it's not a palatable subject, I understand that nobody wants to
look at this. I didn't want to look at it or deal with it but the fact
is that we have to think of the child it is happening to.
apparently lives in her own little Bizarro world. Pizzagate was a
proven hoax debunked years ago. All this stuff is easily checked on
line. Why is Vicky Ash still promulgating a lie? Presumably
because people who are even dimmer than she is suck it in? I also
see that in the latest SAFF thread with Louise Dickens she also believes
implicitly in Pizzagate. Jeez. The hoax is minutely explained in
Wikipeadia here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pizzagate_conspiracy_theory )
some readers think we are being unduly harsh on Vicky Ash they should
consider the ramifications of what she is saying for the hundreds of
thousands of decent people who ascribe to the Pagan religion, which is
basically that they abuse their own kids. She may indeed be a nice
lady who is obviously sincere but these things she is claiming are
terrible lies and must be challenged.
in an attempt to convince the SAFF that SRA existed Louise Dickens
directed us to the hoax Pizzagate documents in her recent Tweets. She
thought they would convince the SAFF
that SRA existed, because the hoax obviously convinced her. Louise does not know that it is bunkum
and has already been proven
bogus. We told Louise that Pizzagate was untrue but did she
believe us? Nope! She is a member of the wildly
conspiratorial Qanon Pizzagate Forum and actually messaged them for help in contradicting the SAFF's List of government enquiry results here over
the past 30 years, which have concluded that there is NO SRA!
Louise simply will not learn or listen. The image (right) shows what she
said: We are still waiting for her to produce evidence to
repudiate the official 14 Inquiries which said SRA did not Exist.
Notice the conspiratorial, I have evidence but can't use it publicly,
quip. Louise if you've got any evidence of SRA you HAVE to publish
it otherwise people will suspect you are making it up.
33:58 Louise Dickens. Yes.
33: 59 Ash: If it's difficult for you, how difficult do you think
it is for the children that it is happening to? That's where there's a
sacrifice.. there's a sacrifice to what it costs us because.., well, I'm
fortunate to have come through it and I just think of the children that
don't and the cost to people, people who are locked up right now for
speaking out because they can name VIPs paedophpiles and they are
imprisoned. ( Lest any of the fundies with tiny
minds are getting the wrong idea here let us point out that she is NOT
talking about Satanic Human Sacrifice, she
is referring to Christian self-sacrifice. )
34:35 Wedger: And some have committed suicide as well.
34:36 Ash: Exactly. Or they're escaping
their memories and end up alcoholic or something because all of those
are symptoms of an underlying cause, once you deal with that then you
The 'lost' Dickens SRA Dossier
34:53 Wedger: So you had your granddad Louise and he produced two
lists and they were given to Leon Brittan and i've heard from my police
sources about Leon Brittan, everyone knew what this guy was, In your
opinion why do you think Leon Brittan got rid of these lists? What
was in it for him?
No Wedger, Leon Brittan didn't get rid of any of the lists Dickens sent to
him. They are all acounted for in government files Check out
http://saff.nfshost.com/dickens.htm where SAFF has reproduced official papers.
The only 'Dickens Dossier' that went 'missing' was his SRA Dossier and
the SAFF have proved that it didn't really go missing at all. It
contained nothing but inuendo, suspicions and false accusations from
other fundie-activists. It was so bad Dickens never presented it to the
Home Secretary as he promised he was going to do. He probably realised
it would be ridiculed and he would lose the advantage of being able to
pretend he actually had some evidence of SRA.
promised to be sending his Dossier to the Home Office for nearly a year,
and then it somehow got 'lost in the post' on it's way from Dianne Core
(who had amassed it all for him) to Dickens' house. Can
you imagine that?
Why didn't Core forward it directly to the Home Office?
Why was a large file of valuable documentation
through the ordinary post without registering it for a signature?
When the SAFF challenged Dickens on this tragic loss we asked why
he couldn't simply reconstitute it from the originals? We didn't
keep any copies, came the reply. Really?
Then can you make an
all those who contributed to it to send you their copies? After
all it's only a year since you began compiling it all, why not write and
ask them to send another?
Nothing could be done apparently.
Dickens' SRA Dossier had
disappeared into a Black Hole.
important SRA Dossier of all time had simply vanished.
convenient for some. They are still 'trading' on it's imagined content to this very day 32 years later.
SAFF are Awful. Not Just Awful, they're Vile; not just Vile Vulgar!
35:14 Louise Dickens: Is that a trick question? (Hilarious laughter all round).
35:17 Wedger: Yeah, a bit obvious that isn't it
35:19 Louise Dickens: It is isn't it? Come on we all know
exactly why, we all know he was clearly in it up to his neck At one
point I did kind of flip with the idea, erm, I spoke to a family friend
and asked their opinion on Leon Brittan, when I was kind of flip
flopping and they said he was just a weak, pathetic little man. And I
thought, was he a weak, pathetic little man? Yes he was but was he
also in it up to his neck, yep damn right, he was not a desirable
person at all. Vile, but can I just go back to when we were talking
about trolling, and going back to SAFF, the problems I have personally
had with them on Twitter, constantly, like even an hour ago I get,
constant tweets off them trying to discredit my granddad. They will not
accept that SRA exists.
36:20 Wedger: Well of Course they wont.
36:23 Louise Dickens: This organisation, guys look them up, they are absolutely vile.
36:29 Wedger: The acronym is SAFF, stands for Sub-culture Alternatives Freedom Foundation.
36:35 Louise Dickens: They're vulgar.
36:38 Wedger: They are a pro-paedophile organisation and pro-satanic group.
This is the
third time Wedger has spoke untruths about the SAFF. We are not
pro-paedophile we are anti-paedophile. The insinuation that we are
a Satanic organisation is false. We work for the religious rights
of ALL philosophies and belief, including Christianity AND
certainly not getting into heaven if Proverbs 6: 16-19 is anything to go
by. I wouldn't trust this untruther as far as I could throw
36:40 Louise Dickens: Yes. And they proclaim that
they are sticking up for human rights and (shaking fist in sarcasm)
They've protected many children for years.
Since 1991 when SAFF published their Black Museum of
Priestly Abuse, and added to it year on year incidences of churchmen
abusing children have gone down from their pre 1991 levels. We
reckon we've saved THOUSANDS of children from harm Louise, and this is
on top of the many cases that the SAFF has been involved in directly as
advisors and go-betweens with social services departments and police
investigations to save injustices happening to young families and
children in care.
You may think it's OK to ridicule the SAFF's claims but just as we have
proven with your grandfather's SRA antics, we can prove every darn one
of them and your complaints are beginning to make you look delusional.
An example of the SAFF's 30 year track record of work
on human rights can be seen here: http://saff.nfshost.com/unhumrit.htm
in the SAFF' submission to the United Nations Association Human Rights Committee in 1992. We can post hundreds of other examples.
36:45 Wedger: Well PIE said that, they said they actually loved children, a benevolent society that loved children.
36:57 Louise Dickens: On their agenda
once was lowering the age of consent to five. That was when it was
government funded. PIE was government funded and they wanted to lower
the age of consent to five. That's vile, that's people in power.
37:03 Ash: Just legalising Satanic Practices.
37:14 Wedger. And these were people who had the backing of Harriet Harman, the longest serving woman MP.
look how these evil people smear the SAFF by misrepresenting what
really happened on Twitter and then try to associate the SAFF with the
despicable PIE group which has nothing whatsoever to do with Satanism or
Witchcraft or the SAFF. In order to fool their viewers into
believing this they then talk about PIE's paedophile activities and slip
sinful false accusation that we are a 'pro-paedophile'
organisation. The despicable nature of Louise Dickens can clearly
be seen when you realise that the SAFF have already made clear to her in
the SAFF Twitter thread that she refers to that we do NOT condone
paedophiles and in fact hunt them down for their abuses of children in
churches. These two wicked people then slide into a
discussion on lowering the age of consent to 5 as though the SAFF in
some way condones that awful idea. These people are
just ignorant witch-hunters. Pitchforkers of the worst kind.
Contrary to Louise Dickens' assertion about 'bullying' we first tweeted her in
2016. A short flurry of tweets back and forth was inconclusive as
she kept dodging key issues, such as, was she a Christian Fundamentalist?
Obviously with the Three Blind Mice
video we don't have to ask that anymore! We next tweeted her two
years later (hardly befitting her description of 'constantly') in
2018 because of something concerning a previous statement she had made.
Another short flurry of tweets back and forth. The next time we
tweeted Louise Dickens was a
month ago after a another period of two years. So we haven't 'trolled'
anyone, particularly not her. The SAFF don't 'troll' people
if Louise will keep on retweeting photos of Vaseline Jars with an innocent
VIP's photo on the front and mad insinuations that Leon Brittan
hired a hitman to kill her grandfather, she should expect to be
40:35 Wedger: Talking about alliances are you still getting people
from the Parliamentary Forum getting in touch with you regarding your
grandfathers work? I see you've written down John Mann. John Mann is
always at the anti-child-abuse rallies, I've spoken to him myself,
very outspoken individual but he's quite a stalwart when it comes to
protecting the children.
41;09 Louise Dickens: Yes, Unfortunately he lost his seat at
the last election which was a real hit because I did seem to find an
ally in him. I've been looking for a decent ally for quite a while
for somebody that will kinda go forward without their own agenda.
Everyone has their own agenda so when you approach an investigative
journalist or you approach a member of parliament, they automatically
see me and say 'Ahah what can I get from you?' So I've been solo
for quite a while because you just don't really know who to trust do
So I've roped you in Mr Wedger. (chuckles).
41:54 Wedger: I don't mind, there's nothing they can do to me that they haven't tried.
42:05 Ash: Derek Prince said that in the Last Days, it won't be
persecution or poverty, that will be the problem, it will be Deception.
It will be Deception. ( N.B Last Days is a fundie
epithet for the Tribulations just prior to Armageddon. Vicki apparently
believes that we are already in the End Times)
42:07: Wedger: Of course because He is the Great Deceiver. (N.B. Great Deceiver is a fundie epithet for The Devil. Vicki and Wedger appear to think that the Devil actually exists)
42:08 Wedger: John Mann was always one the victim and survival groups would always
warm to. You've got Andrew Bridgen who stands out.
42:15 Louise Dickens: Yes, he does actually!
42:17 Wedger: And Andrew did say to me; Jon, They'll do nothing
that's above their pay grade. What can they do? I sat down with
Andrew and one of the leading journalists and this journalist said to
me: Look we've known about Leon Brittan for years we've known what he's
been up to but every time we put something out it's an editorial matter
and it gets withdrawn.
42:42. Ash: The police have always told me that they believe me ,
I've had many officers, all the officers say 'of course we believe you
but there's insufficient evidence', but that evidence will come.
It appears here that Vicky Ash is saying that she
hasn't any forensic evidence to prove her claims that she was Satanically
Abused? We have never heard the details of her case but gauge from
her asides that it is bunkum. So here's a challenge Vicki.
You tell the SAFF what you suffered at the hands of your imaginary
Satanists and if it's real we will apologise. Fair enough?42:51 Wedger: There's something
we mentioned earlier, the
Official Secrets Act come into it, now what would the Official Secrets
Act have to do with child-abuse? Very strange isn't it? (all
yes). They're brought in really because something is a hindrance
to the political, economic or financial stability of the country. ...Why
are we a threat? Telling the truth and exposing these sick sods,
bastards, a threat? (all, yes).
43:24 Louise Dickens: If like, my granddad's work, how's that just
got lost (makes quotation marks in the air). How has that been
lost somewhere? If it was all rubbish then hang it out to dry and
let us all see?
It got lost because it was rubbish and Grandad wanted to jetison it, Louise
43:35 Ash: Yes, and Why can't we find the Panorama programme? ('In The Name of Satan?')
43:40 Louise Dickens: Yes, and why can't we find the
That was never lost either. Stop complaining, you lot are
making yourselves look silly. Just watch it on the SAFFutube channel like everyone else. 'In the Name Of Satan'
completely undermines your allegations and once you've seen how bad it
makes false allegations of Satanic Abuse look you won't EVER mention it
again, I assure you. I don't know what Vicky will do after this as it seems to have been her only claim to fame.
43:44 Louise Dickens: And why can't people that have dealt with my
grandfather before that I know have been friends with him and I know had
had dealings with him professionally, friendships and all sorts
and they won't really talk to me. I've spoken to Lords, I've
spoken to people that were with grandad and they've shut me down immediately and no one will talk to me.
are they going to say to you Louise? He was an opportunist
political rent-a-quote who hi-jacked almost any controversey to get
newspaper coverage. His false allgations about Witchcraft and
Paganism embarrassed us personally and politically and we certainly don't want to go there again.
I think they are saving your feelings Louise. But here (cutting
right) is an example of Bunter's opportunism and why no intelligent
person would want to revisit it. Note that
granddad has no hesitation in declaring that children are being stalked
and will be murdered by 'monsters' even though there was absolutely no
evidence of that in any of the actual cases that occurred. It was all
hysteria, created by Dickens' SRA campaign . What could this be
other than a
simple attempt to get free publicity for himself? Click on the image for a large version.
44:02 Wedger: I mean, Tom Watson was sort of going that way but he's been very quiet hasn't he.
44:06. Louise Dickens: He has, he got lured in with Exaro News. They, yarrrrm well, yes.
44;15 Wedger: Well, let's put out an appeal for this documentary , can you just say what it was called again Vicky?
44:20 Ash: 'In the name of Satan?'
44:22 ?Wedger: And who was the producer?
44:24 Ash: 1992 and it was Panorama.
44:26 Wedger; Panorama, 'In the Name of Satan?' 1992 If anyone out there can do some digging, let's get that back up on Youtube.
A Black Witch Casting a Phantom Curse on Geoffrey Dickens on The Phantom James Whale Show
Louise Dickens: Whilst we are on this my granddad was on
the James Whale Show and he was on with; so grandad did one of these and
I've never seen it and I can't find it anywhere, I've messaged
everybody I can think of but unless you are a student or journalist you
can't get hold of certain material so I've hit a brick wall.
grandadd went on for an interview and there was a White witch and a
45:44 Wedger: Oh my word!
45:46 Louise Dickens: There was James Whale, I've heard, my mother
watched it, James Whale, my grandad and these two witches and this
black-witch sat there with a voodoo doll of my grandad stabbing pins into it.
45:50 Wedger: No!
45:52 Louise Dickens: Stabbing pins into it, on my life, my mother has seen it,
45:56 Wedger: Where were the pins going, what part of the body?
45:58 Louise Dickens: I don't know, my mum wasn't that specific (laughs)
I was more, Oh my god! , I asked what was granddad doing,
46:05 Wedger: And how unbelievable that Offcom allowed that to go on.
46:08 Louise Dickens: And that went out. That was aired.
anybody can find me a copy of that then I would love to see it.
Apparently my granddad just sat there laughing at it.
46:16 Wedger: Was the black witch a woman or a man?
46:18 Louise Dickens: Two women I believe.
46:23 Wedger: So we've got an MP who is out there to protect
children against Satanic Abuse and general perversion and this woman
was allowed to sit there and basically make death-threats via voodoo
dolls to Geoffrey Dickens on the TV!
46:37 Louise Dickens: On the TV! Mum said she sat their stabbing pins in this doll.
46:44 Wedger: Who are these people?
46:48 Louise Dickens: I don't want to know.
Wow! A Black Witch
took a voodoo doll of Geoffrey Dickens on the James Whale Show and
cursed him by sticking pins into it to kill him. What more proof does
anyone need that these Witches and Satanists are child killers?
EXCEPT THAT THE VOODOO CURSE NEVER HAPPENED.
Yes that's right Louise, you've got just about every single fact wrong.
It wasn't the James Whale Show it was CTV's Weekend programme.
It wasn't a Black Witch, it was Beth Gurevitch.
The self-proclaimed White Witch who was
holding the voodoo doll was a woman who had for a few weeks prior to the programme
actually been working with Geoffrey Dickens to compile his SRA Dossier.
That's right Louise, they weren't strangers, they were compadres.
Gurevitch, a pestilence forever be upon her name, was the quisling
who worked with Core and Dickens to build their hoax SRA Dossier.
Why did Gurevitch bring that voodoo doll onto the programme. She must
have known it would make other
genuine Witches look bad.
And it certainly worked in your
grandmother's mind didn't it?
You took that incident, conflated by your grandma, and worked it up in
the telling, so that it unjustly blamed Pagans and demonised their
whilst outraging Wedger, and probably every one of the 500 people
watching as a 'death curse' on Geoffrey Dickens when it was nothing of the kind. Absolutely nothing of the kind.
Gurevitch had been working with your grandfather for weeks.
The cutting to the right 'Evil Rights Threat To Children' proves it beyond doubt. (Click on it for a larger version you can read in detail)
This cutting predates the CTV programme by four weeks and is written in
the past tense so Gurevitch, Core and Dickens could have been in contact for many weeks before that.
No wonder your Grandfather laughed at the voodoo doll!
He knew what was going on alright; Gurevitch's 'threat' against him was
no threat at all. We don't know why she brought that voodoo doll
on to the programme but it wasn't to curse him.
Three Blind Mice have been had by something that appeared to be
something that it was not. What else is Louise telling
people that is based on untruths which she is unaware of? Well quite a lot, in fact
almost anything connected with her SRA campaign. SAFF have warned
her that she is being manipulated by conspiracyloons but it appears
is putty in their hands and will repeat false information fed into her
tiny brain by Satan Hunters without bothering to check the facts.
Louise has little first hand knowledge of what
happened then but is very quick to point the finger of guilt at others
who are, almost always, innocent of her venom. Here she wrongly
implicates James Whale. We don't know why she has a fixation on
him, maybe it was because granddad was made to look a fool on his
programme here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmB5w7eM0Bc where he was caught out lying about his strategy to outlaw Paganism?
46:50 Wedger: If we go back to the testimony from Jeanette and she said there were just as many women involved as men.
46:52 Ash: Oh yes, it's a religion! And the thing is that the more
it is hidden the more grooming and recruitment that there is. It's a
religion, like anything else. There will be people who even come out,
you've got ex-satanists that are speaking out. I believe that we are all
being awakned in these Days and we are all seeking Truth. Many Many
people are leaving the occult and finding Jesus and I'll never hide the fact that that's the reason why I'm sat here today.
47:27. Wedger: Well let's do a call-out today to them because if
you are following these practices you are damaging children you are
damaging their souls, you are damaging their bodies, you are damaging
their minds, you are damaging society. Stop it! Just Stop
It! Jesus will always welcome you. Always welcome you. This
is not a religious thing. This isn't a call out for the Anglican Church
and the Catholic Church, get away from all that. Now is the time to do the right thing. And speak out and tell us
where these practices are going on and help us work with law
enforcement so we can uncover these people so we can get our country
back and we can get the souls back of all these broken children
48:13 Ash: And how many people are just too afraid to ever tell because,
you know, they've been involved in something and , that's, that's , The
Gospel is repentance, that the vilest offender who truly believes, a pardon from Jesus is received.
Audrey Harper - Satanic Ritual Abuse Victim Extraordinaire
48:47 Wedger: Audrey Harper does say in her book (Dance with the
Devil) she says she got dragged into satanism because she was a street
prostitute and she was co-erced into it but she doesn't make any
excuses, She said, 'I killed a Baby' and she says it in there, she's
told the police. She said they made me kill a baby. (all nod
their heads in agreement and say yes) and the police said; well she
never did any time for it, and she did speak out.
49:11 Louise Dickens: Grandad wrote the foreward for that book.
49:18 Wedger: Oh yes, he did, and it's called Dance with the Devil.
49:24. Ash: How wonderful. What bravery for that woman. What
bravery for that woman, you see, that's the freedom that the truth
brings. But to actually write a book!
It inspires me so much.
49:48 Wedger. It's a hard book to read, a hard book.
49:47 Louise Dickens: It is a difficult read, it is yeah.
problem with this is that Audrey Harper's story of her time in a
Satanic Coven has never ever been validated and I don't believe a word
of it. She is supposed to have spent 5 years in a Satanic Coven
and only escaped when she got pregnant and claimed the 'Master' of the
coven wanted to sacrifice it. She later gave the baby up for
adoption. She was hospitalised for drugs and then sectioned in mental
hospitals. She then married and lived a 'normal' life for years
until 1986 when she was converted to Christianity, was exorcised and
'delivered' by Roy Davies of Emmanuel Pentacostal Church in Stourport,
not a million miles from Doreen Irvine's Christian Centre in Yate,
Bristol (see later). Her early tales did not include
claims of seeing a baby sacrificed (something you think she might
mention at every juncture when dissing Satanism) but did involve tales
of sacrificing chickens. Coincidentally, stories of sacrificing
chickens (which is not something Witches or Pagans ever do) also appeared in Doreen Irvine's book 'From Witchcraft to Christ'. As Illuminatimindcontrol.com points out, for some reason the chicken got switched for a baby in Harper's book Dance with the Devil which Geoffrey Dickens wrote the forward for.
In 1989 Audrey Harper appeared along with Doreen Irvine and Maureen
Davies in a U.S. fundamentalist video promoting the existence of Satanic
Ritual Abuse titled. DEVIL WORSHIP and THE RISE OF SATANISM. The
interviewer was Carol Matrisciana, an influential U.S. fundamentalist
who had encouraged Lauren Stratford to write her book on her experiences
as a self-identified SRA victim titled 'Satan's Underground'. It was the
biggest selling such book of all time, but was later destroyed by other
Christian journalists who proved it was a lie from start to finish.
So after spending FIVE YEARS in the thrall of a Satanic Coven Harper is
unable to give us any names of any other SRA victims in her coven, she
has not been able to name even one perpetrator, give any location of
ritual sites where bodies are buried, show or lead the police to any
paraphernalia or impedimenta connected with Satanism nor point out any
addresses of anyone else in the group where she stayed.
Additionally what she does say reveals that she is entirely untutored in
the terminology of Witchcraft and doesn't appear to know even the basic
things about it.
She became a Christian in 1986 and joined Reachout as a star victim
imposter in 1988 claiming to have seen satanists sacrifice A baby. That
is: one baby in 5 years - what was this dastardly Satanic group doing
the other 4 years 11 months and 31 days?. This shocking claim came out
just in time for the Satanic Ritual Abuse Myth. Wedger,
as usual makes another false statement to his gullible audience
and Louise and Vicky just go along with it. Harper has never claimed to
have killed her own baby, her main allegation is that she was present at
a ceremony where 'The Master' sacrificed a baby by slitting its throat.
In her first big appearance (Chat magazine February 1988, see cutting
right) her identity was hidden and she was called 'Black Anna'.
Claims of baby sacrifice were not made. Encouraged by Media gullibility
and their omission to ask the most basic questions about her claims, by
December the same year Harper's accusations of baby sacrifice were
far more bullish when she appeared on The Time and The Place (Border
TV) discussion programme on SRA which caused a sensation across the
press. Surrey police had looked into Audrey's earlier accusations
and ruled there was no case to answer, but the publicity surrounding
TATP was massive and the hysteria overload made them investigate her
claims a second time. However there was 'insufficient evidence' for the police
and they dropped it. In otherwords it was guff.
The SAFF wrote to Brian Hayes the chief constable of Surrey where Harper
had claimed the murder had occurred. We told him how dangerous
the SRA myth was and asked if he would publish the results of the
investigation to avoid any more false accusations. If he had
published his findings it might have saved hundreds of victims of
false accusations in the next 30 years but his Assistant Chief
Constable ( who omitted his name on his squiggled signature) said.
NO! 'I shall communicate with the proper authorities but the results will not be passed by me to yourself.'
So for the second time the police dropped the case and Harper was free
to glibly tell tales of being an accessory to murder without being
prosecuted for it.
Wedger, Louise Dickens and Vicky Ash think Harper is a marvellous
person. She was a Barnardo's girl, who was adopted by a Doctor's
family but went wayward in her teenage years getting into drugs,
prostitution and, apparently living in a London squat with drug-dealers
etc. This dissolution nearly ended her life and she stayed traumatised
with difficult relationships until she was converted to Christianity by
Roy Davies. Ya know what I think? I think she rewrote her teenage years exchanging the
reality of the Drugs Squat for a 'Satanic Group' and reinterpreted
everything else to suit her new back-story. That's what I
think, but as Audrey doesn't seem to want to answer SAFF questions we
will probably never know the truth.
49:43 Wedger: And then we've got Caroline Brammall who goes out there and she therapises people with DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder)
50:01 Ash: It used to be called Mutliple Personality Disorder (MPD) now it's
known as Dissociative Identity Disorder where as a child you can't cope
so you split off...
50:16 Wedger: Do you suffer from any of that?
50:18: Ash: Oh definitely, when I look back, without a
doubt, I was always told I had a vivid imagination and was highly
strung, i'm not surprised I was highly strung. Just always running,
always running from myself. Everybody around this area has seen my
journey. They saw my journey coming to church, I'm living proof (laughs)
of the results of dealing with it because people saw me come to church
and there would be trigger-words, because if I heard the word 'sin' I
would be underneath the pews, because I used to remember they used to
gather around me with their cloaks on and chant 'She's Sinned, She's
Sinned, She's Sinned '. (Makes clawing gesture with hands) 'Punish her,
Punish her, Punish her' So you can imagine when i first went to
church if I just heard the world 'Sin' I would just be instantly, you
know, I think, seriously I was in my twenties then, I've got better
things to do, than be scurrying around under the pews of a church, but
they were trigger-words, and all these words, because they use mind
control, they use hypnosis, mind-control and drugging so you don't
remember where you've been, every single thing, for me it never, you
know, it needs to be addressed, to save children, but for me personally,
it doesn't , it's immaterial whether people who are watching now
believe me or not, I know that I have told the truth, It is for you to
get revelation of it. I have told the truth, and for me I can go to my
grave, and my children my husband, that I've been with since I was 16,
has walked the journey, my friends, that are still my friends today, all
know that the whole journey has been a journey, of finding the truth that has set me free.
52:53 Wedger: So Vicky Does her Christian outreach work and it does get
results and Vicky was one of the first pioneers in this and I first got
to hear about her from UK Column many years ago and as a result more
have come forward. ...... I've got a letter writing campaign
that people write to these constabularies saying these things need investigating
57:48 Wedger: Can you lead us out with a prayer Vicki?
57:50 Ash: Certainly, certainly, .....Jesus you came to
destroy the works of the Devil.....Don't blame it on God... It was the
Devil who abused me.... Lord please give people the strength to come
forward......The sacrifice of the Lamb and was told to smear the blood
over the doorpost....Father I believe it's the name of Jesus and it's
the pleading of the blood over our lives and our families that is that
spiritual protection against Witchcraft... and father I pray for every
Satanist that is bound, I pray for everybody that's involved and doesn't
want to be involved, I thank you that the vilest offender who
truly believes are pardoned from Jesus. ..... Would you do what
only you can do and bring justice and hope for the survivors and victims
of Satanic Ritual Abuse In the mighty name of Jesus I pray.
Three Blind Mice Transcrip Ends:
Christian Gay Bashing and A Definition of Satanic Ritual Abuse.
The SAFF does not claim that abuses do not occur. We claim
that Satanic Ritual Abuse is a figment of the imaginations of
fundamentalist agitators, which I think we have amply proved
The SAFF accepts that there was a clique of
homosexuals in parliament in the 1970s / 1980s who may or may not have
networked with each other and had sexual relations within the Gay
subculture. This was a secretive sub-culture because of the
laws against homosexuality which have thankfully been repealed.
Geoffrey Dickens was an out and out anti-homosexual gay-bashing
bigot. His work on trying to persecute gays is outlined
Dickens' attack on Peter Hayman and the PIE scandal were part of this anti-homosexual campaign.
In 1987 Dickens and other far-right Tory MPs got together in a campaign
to stop the normalisation of homosexuality by introducing Clause
28 into the local government bill which made it a duty of local
authorities NOT to promote homosexuality. The MP who
introduced this bill was fundie Dame Jill Knight who later joined
Dickens' Witch-hunting campaign and organised lectures in Westminster
for other MPs by Reachout Trust. In one, members of the Gang of Five highlight false claims of abuse in Satanic Ceremonies. ) and try to pass them of as evidence of SRA.
Anti-homosexuality campaigns and anti-abortion campaigns were the stock
in trade of fundie activists at that time. Lord David Alton was heavily
involved in campaigning to restrict Abortion throughout these years and
also believed the lies about sacrificing children attached to the
Satanic Ritual Child Abuse myth. It can be clearly seen that
the Myth of Satanic Abuse was a conflation of both of abortion and
'perversion' and enabled committed Christians to side-step the new laws
liberating sexuality by piling the horrors they expected to occur onto
an imaginary enemy, Satan. It's Gay-Bashing by proxy.
In July 1989 Audrey Harper, Satanic victim-imposter, and member of the Gang of Five, gives an interview
to the discredited Cook Report special on 'The Devil's Work' which
unveiled the first Satanic Abuse claims to the British public.
The interview amply
proves SAFF 's contentions. In her statement she made disparaging
comments about Satanists being homosexuals and lesbians. Audrey
Harper had inferred that homosexuality and satanic child
were connected in her interview in The Cook Report The Devil's
fact the only complaint that the TV TIMES printed about
was one from a gay man pointing out that it
is not a qualification
of homosexuality to indulge in witchcraft
or child-abuse, whereupon a
spokesperson for Central TV who produced the Devil's Work,
in general to the gay community.
A year later, in June 1990 the Sun trashpaper ran a series
of articles critical of
homosexuals. A few days later their letters
re-enforced these ignorant prejudices. Although the original
article had not
mentioned any connection with Occultism one letter read: "Your
excellent article mirrored my own view on this cult
scares me the amount of evil arising from
these perverts and the
witchcraft followers who ruin young children
and desecrate Christian beliefs."
There is absolutely no
that fundamentalists target homosexuality and in their own
perspectives see homosexuality as a causal evil of Satanic
Ritual Abuse. As it is all done by proxy, so casual
outsiders don't see the truth of the matter. When SRAhunters seek to
demonise and flay Satanist's alive, it is a projection, in their
subconscious they are doing it to Gays. It is the gay community
they want to violently attack and destroy.
All this is very, very dangerous and it is about time MPs wised up, did
their job, stopped grandstanding with these Pitchforkers and demanded
that government and the police begin to see it for what it is, before
the SRAmyth claims more lives.
Essentially Satanism and Witchcraft are heterosexual and balanced in
doctrine. If anything Satanism is strongly heterosexual not
homosexual. Whilst there are some gays involved they are in a

It is a SCARE tactic used by:
1: Fundamentalist Christians who require evidence of Satanism to confirm their own beliefs.
2: The Child-scare industry which gets more influence and funding the more they exaggerate threats of child abuse.
Satanic Ritual Abuse does not exist.
