Satan…sinkholes…sonic booms…which do you think will get us first? Or is it all perhaps psychological warfare?
Hollywood, I notice, seems to be particularly enamored of Satan at present. (Perhaps that’s not surprising.) In addition to the new entertainment productions mentioned in the video above, there are a couple of additional ones also set for release in the coming month that are not mentioned…
One is a movie called The Witch, scheduled open on February 19th. Intended apparently as an attack upon Christianity, the film is set in New England “decades before the 1692 Salem witch trials,” as the official website puts it, and it has won glowing praise from the Satanic Temple, which is now even helping to market it. “Upon threat of banishment by the church, an English farmer leaves his colonial plantation, relocating his wife and five children to a remote plot of land on the edge of an ominous forest,” the plot goes.
The other is called “Damien,” a TV series based upon the 1976 horror film “The Omen” and set to begin airing March 7 on A&E. The premise of the script is that Damien, the child born in the 1976 film, is all grown up now, though he has a few problems coming to grips with who he is. But help is there in the form of a family friend (played by Jewish actress Barbara Hershey) who seeks to “help him embrace his antiChrist side,” according to Wikipedia.
As an article here puts it, “Satan is sizzling hot right now.”
All of this, of course, is extremely unhealthy, but I would guess that that’s by design.
It would seem that Europe is plagued with Femen…
While America is beset with the Satanic Temple…The Satanic Temple’s Jex Blackmore
I can’t help wondering if the same people, or at least some of the same people, are possibly funding both.
Richard Edmondson is an author, novelist, poet, and journalist whose writings often focus on Middle East issues, the Zionist lobby, and religion. His latest novel is The Memoirs of Saint John: When the Sandstone Crumbles, a story about an archaeological team doing a dig in Syria and set amidst the current conflict in the country.
In 2014 Richard attended an International Conference on Combating Terrorism and Religious Extremism, held in Damascus. The book is part two in the Memoirs of Saint John series.
Two other books by Richard are Rising Up: Class Warfare in America from the Streets to the Airwaves, relating his experiences founding and operating an unlicensed or “pirate” FM radio station in San Francisco in the 1990s, as well as a volume of poetry entitled American Bus Stop: Essay and Poems on Hope and Homelessness.
Richard is cognizant of the words of the early Christian writer Tertullian, who in the second century-basically prognosticating the fall of the Roman Empire-wrote: “We have made merry amid the ludicrous cruelties of the noonday exhibition.”
