Once again advocates of the much discredited Satanic Abuse Panic are making claims of widespread child abuse across Britain. Scotland appears to have become caught up in a nationwide frenzy of superstitious irrationality. This moral panic exhibits typical clichés of sensationalist psychology. In England, the case of Carole Myers/Felstead (www.justiceforcarol.com) – whose family were falsely accused of an endless variety of insane criminal acts – has comprehensively demonstrated that the existence of Satanic Cults preying on vulnerable children is a myth created on the therapists couch. As in Rotherham, real victims of abuse are being let down by focusing on this nonsense.
CHILDREN have been the victims of satanic abuse including rape, murder and even the production of so-called snuff films which depict killings, two leading charities claimed last night.
One campaigner said he had heard of babies born but never registered, so they would not be missed when killed by secret paedophile networks.
The existence of such terrifying cults is said to have gone unchecked in Scotland for decades, with victims facing scepticism and outright disbelief.
Many incidents took place years ago but experts are sure ritual abuse rings still operate.
Police Scotland said yesterday they were taking the allegations “incredibly seriously” and would investigate any complaints.
