WITCHES RIDE FREELY IN AMERICAN CLASSROOMS!
For most of us, Halloween is a mildly amusing night that means jack o' lanterns, trick-or-treaters, and children garbed in costumes which seek to instill fear in the lives of those who do or don't ave a treat for them when they go house to house to solicit treats.
Sadly, in some American cities, Halloween and its preceding Mischief Night sounds High Alert for law enforcement and fire service professionals who have certainly do not look forward to HELL NIGHT, which results in home, building and automobile arson fires being viciously set, and rampant crime and related violence as a form of holiday trickery.
Fortunately for many public service professionals in these affected areas, Halloween comes only once a year, which is about all they can take of this annual event. But, long before Halloween, many young and impressionable children are exposed to much more of these blatant occult themes than is widely known, especially by those who should be the first to know: Parents.
Sadly, it happens daily in many American schools! For some children in the public school classroom, however, Halloween is not just a once-a-year event. The fearsome characters who possess supernatural powers and prowl in the night are often made larger than life in the classroom; they populate school curricula, supplementary reading books and films shown in class throughout the school year, normally starting on September 21 and lasting until November 1.
Many parents have been shocked to discover that their children have been subjected to frightening materials as a part of their regular school instruction. The children are usually too young or impressionable to deal with such materials.
Here are some examples of what parents are complaining about:
*THE WITCHES by Roald Dahl is both a challenged and banned book, but surreptitiously used by countless schools throughout America.
The book starts out with the caveat... This is not a fairy tale! This is about real witches! The book goes on to say that real witches dress in ordinary clothes; look like ordinary women; hate children; and get their pleasure from stealing one child a week each year.
The parents only learned about this horrendous instruction when their second graders had nightmares.
*Seventh graders at a school have for years been assigned to read the Guide to the London Dungeon, a British museum where tourists can see frightening displays of wax figures demonstrating hideous torture practices that were used in bygone eras. The guide itself states that the exhibition is not recommended to unaccompanied or young children. The class assignment instructed the children to write a paragraph describing your own form of torture.
Now, is that a nice lesson to give a seventh grader?
One child announced that he was going home and try this torture on his little brother.
*In another school, 11-year-olds were given a book called THE HEADLESS CUPID, which is about a girl practicing to be a witch. The book graphically describes witchcraft and occult practices, including spirit guides, seances and initiation rites.
*A class of sixth-graders was shown the R-rated movie, DAWN OF THE DEAD as a reward after they had finished a test.
Parents were not informed in advance and, when they finally reviewed the film, were shocked to find that it contained cannibalism, brutally violent scenes and was steeped in satanic and occult-related themes.
*In still another American school, the film, THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER was shown to sixth-graders. Parents complained because it shows a witch calling up the devil from the pit of hell while the walls appear to be coming alive with humans who are bleeding and screaming in agony. The witch worships the devil by licking and kissing him, calling him "my god and my master."
*Fourth graders at another school were required to use a seemingly dated reading book series that included stories about self-proclaimed witches, witchcraft and Satanism. The book series, MAN, MYTH AND MAGIC, which can be found in many public and school libraries throughout the nation, due to its past popularity, and because of its being a part of the Random House COUNTERPOINT 2 reading series, which includes filmstrips and audio cassettes claimed by the publisher to be factual and widely used across the country.
*Since September 21, television and movie features with occult-related content has filled the time slots viewed primarily by children and on the cable and mainstream television channels most often viewed by young people, many around the occult theme number 13. These features have included marathons of 13 shows using blatant occult themes including witchcraft, Satanism, demons and spells. This is nothing new, because it happens each and every year, commencing September 21, and ending its season spread on November 1.
Ironically, with the high volume of targeted occult-related entertainment market seemingly aimed at young viewers, the news media continues to remind young viewers that peer interest in witchcraft and Satanism continue to rise.
Just take a glance at your local television, cable and movie listings to really get an idea of just how massive this annual occult campaign really is. We guarantee that you'll be amazed even if and when you look in the listing for the day you read this between September 21 and November 1!
This truly grim reality has also been mirrored and expanded upon by an ever-growing number of women and parent-oriented magazines, commenting on their observations and reader input.
--Suddenly satanic symbols seem to be as obvious a sign of modern young generation as bobby sox were of another.
Interspersed with a cases study of Satanism-related murder involving several teen-age boys in a mid-western state, the magazines have detailed the warning signs of teen occult involvement..
Has the targeted audience of parents and educators taken advantage of knowing these warning signs or has this information met with gross denial or the belief that it is a fad that will pass?
In reality, for too many young people, it has become their worst nightmare!
So, the question arises, even after the death of Howard Levy (aka Anton Szandor LaVey), founder of the First Church of Satan in California, does Satanism, witchcraft and the occult play a key role in the lives of America children and youth?
You do the math, but with seemingly continuous evidence of slaughtered animals, handprints in animal blood on walls, cemetery desecration, corpse theft and apparent Satanism-related suicides, we say, without a doubt, YES!
