What is Satanism – Really? And What Isn’t? A Concise Definition Of Christianity-created Pseudo-satanism (CCPS)
Satanism is one of those controversial subjects that causes many people to recoil or to react with disgust – typically without them really knowing what it’s all about, or without them even trying to.
Of course, given what little they do know about it – and what sort of propaganda has been fed to them, how can one really blame them?
After all, they only know what they’ve been told from the pulpit, or via a Christian TV preacher – distilled through decades of pop-culture media disinformation, out-of-touch-with-reality law-enforcement fantasy, and religious fanatic wishful thinking.
But they’ve read the papers, listened to those late-night Christian radio talk shows, and watched Christian experts appearing on Sunday night SABC TV shows, so what more could they possibly need to know about the sticky subject of Satanism and the occult?
A lot, as it turns out.
What follows is an explanation of what Satanism is – not from a prejudiced Christian perspective, but from a factual, realistic academic viewpoint, detailing the differences between Satanism (NRM) and what the propaganda claims it is – culminating in the definition of Christianity-created Pseudo-satanism (CCPS).
Satanism, New Religious Movements, conflation, Christianity-created pseudo-satanism, atheistic Satanism, theistic Satanism, satanic-panic, hysteria, misconceptions, satanic ritual abuse, occult related crimes, occult experts, frauds, fakes, charlatans, South Africa.
