CBN Milks Satanic Panic For Click Bait Ratings

In light of Halloween, the CBN website and social media accounts are making a fuss over claims made by alleged ex-Satanist John Ramirez.

Foremost among his claims is that Satan use to talk to him and confided that all parents need to do for Satan to assert a legal claim to their children is to allow them to Trick or Treat even if they do not explicitly swear an oath of fidelity to the Prince of Darkness.

However, there are a few things that the discerning should take into consideration.

It is said that Satan is the father of lies and that in him there is no truth.

So even if “Satan” literally spoke to Mr. Ramirez about these matters, why should we then necessarily believe that this is all it takes for parents to lose their children to the Devil?

One would think God would be more ticked off about Pat Robertson's cold reading “Word Of Faith” scam (“I see someone on the viewing audience. The winds of the spirit are blowing coolly on their inflamed hemorrhoids” ) than on kids in costume trick or treating door to door.

Satanism is a real danger.

However, the average Christian child probably has a greater chance of being molested by the youth pastor than being snatched off the streets Halloween night by this variety of pernicious occultists.
