Tune in to Talk Radio 702 or 567 Cape Talk this Sunday night (tonight) at 8PM when I will be providing (what I hope to be) a coherent and rational sceptical position on the satanism scares in the media. Tune in and phone in.

I will be inviting listeners back here to discuss the topic.

The discussion will probably start with the recent media attention given to the "satanist ninja" story. It seems that Morne Harmse is no longer claiming it was satan who made him do it, even though this was extremely unlikely in the first place. But it is a general topic on satanism scares, so it will probably go into "embedded messages" in music, the heavy metal band controversies of the past, the satanic ritual abuse scandals of the 80s. I'll be interested to see where this goes. :)

I'm having trouble getting the online feed for 702 or 567 to work, can someone try to record it tonight?

I have also not been able to use the online streaming feature. But after the show 702 usually makes the show available on the podcast page. I expect it will be there some time this week. If not I also have a backup plan ;)

Good show James.

It appears that we need to distinguish between theistic and atheistic satanists, with the Church of Satan representing the latter, and Mr Krige having represented the former.

Your and Mr Krige's ideas about who the real and the pseudo satanists are, are diametrically and logically opposed. Interesting!
