SYDNEY – Seven percent of Catholic priests were accused of abusing children in Australia between 1950 and 2010 but the allegations were never investigated, “shocking and indefensible” data showed Monday during an inquiry into paedophilia in the church.


The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse heard that 4,444 alleged incidents of pedophilia were reported to church authorities and in some dioceses, more than 15 percent of priests were perpetrators.


Australia ordered the Royal Commission in 2012 after a decade of growing pressure to investigate allegations of child abuse across the country, with the inquiry now in its final phase after four years of hearings.


“Between 1950 and 2010, overall seven percent of priests were alleged perpetrators,” said Gail Furness, the lawyer leading questioning at the inquiry in Sydney.


“The accounts were depressingly similar. Children were ignored or worse, punished. Allegations were not investigated. Priests and religious (figures) were moved,” she added.


“The parishes or communities to which they were moved knew nothing of their past. Documents were not kept or they were destroyed. Secrecy prevailed as did cover ups.”


The average age of the victims at the time was 10 for girls and 11 for boys. Of the 1,880 alleged perpetrators, 90 percent were men.


The St John of God Brothers religious order was the worst, with just over 40 percent of members accused of abuse.


The commission has spoken to thousands of survivors and heard claims of child abuse involving churches, orphanages, sporting clubs, youth groups and schools.


The church in Australia set up the Truth, Justice and Healing Council to coordinate its response.


“These numbers are shocking, they are tragic, they are indefensible,” its chief executive Francis Sullivan told the commission.


“This data, along with all we have heard over the past four years, can only be interpreted for what it is: a massive failure on the part of the Catholic Church in Australia to protect children from abusers. As Catholics we hang our heads in shame.”


The inquiry has embroiled Australia’s most senior Catholic cleric George Pell, now the Vatican’s finance chief, who was questioned over his dealings with paedophile priests in Victoria state in the 1970s.


Pell was also accused of historic sex abuse claims when he was the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney in 2002, but was later cleared of any wrongdoing. He has denied all allegations.


Since being set up, the commission has made over 300 referrals to police but so far there have only been 27 prosecutions with 75 cases pending.

Dancing with the devil: Inside the Los Angeles Satanic Temple’s biggest EVER ‘black mass’ with blood-letting, demonic cats, tattoos… and ‘destruction rituals’


  • Los Angeles’ Satanic Temple chapter held its biggest event ever during Saturday night’s black mass
  • The event included a destruction ritual, an invocation ritual and a bloodletting ritual, all with live music
  • Guests also listened to a 45-minute lecture about demonic cats by occult expert Dr Paul Koudounaris
  • Satanic Temple, which preaches ‘practical common sense and justice’, has 24 chapters across the US


LOS ANGELES – The Satanic Temple Of Los Angeles, a chapter of a nationwide satanic organization, hosted a massive ‘black mass’ Saturday night, complete with a live bloodletting ritual and a 45-minute lecture about demonic cats.


Guests could also attend a destruction ritual and an invocation ritual, both with live music. The event doubled as a fundraiser for the chapter’s causes, with include women’s reproductive rights, the First Amendment and prisoner’s rights.


The Satanic Temple, headquartered in Salem, Massachusetts, has 24 chapters across the United states. Members of the movement, which calls itself an organized religion, do not believe in a personal Satan but say they preach rationalism and reject superstition.


VIP tickets to Saturday’s massive rally cost $66.60, while other guests paid $15. Attendees, many of which wore costume, were pictured by LAist enjoying six hours of Satanic activities, including live painting and tattooing.


Doors opened at 9 pm and the evening began with a comedy set by Satanist politician Steve Hill, who ran for the state Senate in California’s 21st district last year.


‘I’m a Satanist as far as trying to get people to understand that I don’t believe in the devil any more than I believe in God,’ Hill, a Democrat, once told Time Magazine. ‘All of it is stupid. But if I have to tell people I’m the devil to get them to listen, then, OK, I’m the devil.’


Guests were treated at 10 pm to a 45-minute lecture on demonic cats by writer, photographer and occult expert Dr Paul Koudounaris, who has also researched sexual encounters between the living and the dead.


The black mass continued with a destruction ritual from 11:55 to 12:45. Several members later asked for the text of the ritual, which was praised by one attendee as an ‘intense and awe-inspiring experience’. ‘These were things that I held in my hands These were things that belonged to me These were things that I held in my heart These are things that have meaning to me These things are not dead, because they never carried life. But I gave these things life, because they have carried me,’ the ritual began according to a transcript shared by The Satanic Temple Los Angeles on Facebook.


A one-hour invocation ritual followed at 1 am. The crowd later took part in a bloodletting ritual from 2:15 am to 2:45 am.



The Satanic Temple Los Angeles had teased the event ahead of time, saying it had faced ‘rampant opposition’ in the months leading up to it.


‘We hope you will celebrate liberation, rebellion and a new global Satanic alliance,’ an announcement read.


Funds raised during the black mass will go towards the group’s campaign for women’s reproductive rights, some lawsuits regarding First Amendment issues, and will go towards helping incarcerated individuals.

THE SATANIC TEMPLE’S SEVEN CORE BELIEFS


  1. One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.
  2. The struggle for justice is an ongoing and necessary pursuit that should prevail over laws and institutions.
  3. One’s body is inviolable, subject to one’s own will alone.
  4. The freedoms of others should be respected, including the freedom to offend. To willfully and unjustly encroach upon the freedoms of another is to forgo your own.
  5. Beliefs should conform to our best scientific understanding of the world. We should take care never to distort scientific facts to fit our beliefs.
  6. People are fallible. If we make a mistake, we should do our best to rectify it and resolve any harm that may have been caused.
  7. Every tenet is a guiding principle designed to inspire nobility in action and thought. The spirit of compassion, wisdom, and justice should always prevail over the written or spoken word.

Ruins Rider
Pierre-Luc Vaillancourt, Canada, 2016, 49 min
*Original music by Marc Hurtado (Étants Donnés)



Filmed in the lost territories of the Balkans, Ruins Rider portrays the secret ruins that triggered trances over the past centuries. Using an array of hypnotic pulsating flickers, filmmaker PIERRE-LUC VAILLANCOURT conceived an explosive kinetic experience. Accompanied by a powerful soundtrack by MARC HURTADO of the mighty Étant Donnés, RUINS RIDER is a visceral experience of hypnagogic archeology and raw energy.

Liturgie Apocryphe

"The production of nervous force is directly connected with the diet of an individual, and its refining depends on the very purity of this diet, allied to appropriate breathing exercises.

The diet most calculated to act effectively on the nervous force is that which contains the least quantity of animal matter; therefore the Pythagorean diet, in this connection, is the most suitable.

...

The main object was to avoid introducing into the organism what Descartes called 'animal spirits'. Thus, all animals that had to serve for the nourishment of the priests were slaughtered according to special rites, they were not murdered, as is the case nowadays".
