By Caryn Dolley Mar 20, Cape Town - A network of sex workers controlled by a pimp involved in gangsterism and satanism has been uncovered in the Cape peninsula. His real name is known to Weekend Argus. He allegedly heads the operation and is a satanist. He is said to recruit and groom sex workers to perform satanic rituals — done behind closed doors, unbeknown to clients — which include drinking blood, usually that of animals. In another twist in this bizarre case, allegations have surfaced a high-profile gang leader previously named a suspect in another underworld killing, ordered the hit on Moses. But a gang source who knew Moses this week denied Moses was linked to satanism or sex workers and insisted he had never heard of The Priest. Satanism and its links to crime were in the spotlight this week when year-old Aljar Swartz was found guilty in the Western Cape High Court of beheading Lee Adams, 15, in Ravensmead three years ago. Moses was shot at least six times in the head outside a car rental dealership in Main Road, Strand, on January No one has been arrested.

Satanic ritual abuse SRA , sometimes known as ritual abuse , ritualistic abuse , organized abuse , or sadistic ritual abuse was the subject of a moral panic often referred to as the satanic panic that originated in the United States in the s, spreading throughout many parts of the world by the late s. Allegations of SRA involved reports of physical and sexual abuse of people in the context of occult or Satanic rituals. In its most extreme form, allegations involve a conspiracy of a worldwide SRA organization that includes the wealthy and powerful of the world elite in which children are abducted or bred for human sacrifices , pornography , and prostitution. Nearly every aspect of SRA was controversial, including its definition, the source of the allegations and proof thereof, testimonies of alleged victims, and court cases involving the allegations and criminal investigations. The panic affected lawyers', therapists', and social workers' handling of allegations of child sexual abuse. Allegations initially brought together widely dissimilar groups, including religious fundamentalists, police investigators, child advocates, therapists, and clients in psychotherapy. The movement gradually secularized, dropping or deprecating the "Satanic" aspects of the allegations in favor of names that were less overtly religious such as "sadistic" or simply "ritual abuse" and becoming more associated with dissociative identity disorder and anti-government conspiracy theories. Initial publicity came via Lawrence Pazder 's book Michelle Remembers and was sustained and popularized throughout the decade by the McMartin preschool trial. Testimonials, symptom lists, rumors, and techniques to investigate or uncover memories of SRA were disseminated through professional, popular, and religious conferences, as well as through the attention of talk shows , sustaining and further spreading the moral panic throughout the United States and beyond.
Pictures from a temple in Prague, Czech Republic, showed the congregation wearing robes and face paint while they apparently worshipped the devil. But rather than wanting to creep people out the church actually wanted show everyone it was not religious and cared more about individualism. The pictures were taken by David Tesinsky, who was the first photographer to be allowed into the temple in Prague to document what happened inside. They are all about individualism and they want happy lives.
Dig it freaks! Waaay bad juju is going down in the quiet suburban streets of downtown Squaresville. While neighbours sleep, a group of hot mamas —butt naked except for short shoulder cloaks, masks and stockings—escort what looks like a bride—a woman in white—into a dimly lit basement. They move slowly, trance-like, carrying long tapered candles in front of them. Against the far wall, an altar where some bearded Daddio—dressed-up as Lucifer—and his old lady—a sassy Astarte—are waiting for them.
